Ethiopians Vote Under Martial-law as Tigray Faces One of The Worst Humanitarian Crises in The World

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 21, 2021

Ethiopians went to the polls Monday as the country’s northern Tigray region faces one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world. The fighting in Tigray has killed thousands of people and displaced millions since last November, and the United Nations said more than 350,000 people in the conflict-torn region are starving. Michelle Gavin, a senior fellow for Africa studies for the Council on Foreign Relations, joined CBSN to discuss.

Reports of Executions & Mass-Rape Emerge From The Obscured War in Ethiopia’s Tigray Region

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on March 25, 2021

ዓለም በኮሮና ወረረሽኝ በተጠመደችበት በዚህ ክፉ ዘመን ያላግባብ “ኢትዮጵያውያን” የተባሉት እና ከየት እንደመጡ ለማወቅ የተሳነኝ ጨካኞች ለአረመኔው መሪያቸው፤ “ጦርነቱን አቁም!” ለማለት እንኳን እስትንፋሱን አጥተዋል። ለብዙ ትውልድ የሚቀመጥና ታሪክ የማይረሳው ክህደት ነው። በአክሱም ጽዮን ላይ የዘመታችሁ፣ “በለው! ግደለው!” እያላችሁ ያዘመታችሁና በግድ-የለሽነት ጸጥታውን የመረጣችሁ “ኢትዮጵያውያን ነን” ባዮች ሁሉ፤ እግዚአብሔር ይፍረድባችሁ፣ መዓቱን ሁሉ ያዝንብባችሁ!

The medical charity Doctors Without Borders has revealed details from the gruesome war playing out virtually out of sight in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region, reporting that government forces executed civilians in cold blood.

Since the violence erupted in Tigray months ago Ethiopia’s government has imposed a media blackout, preventing both foreign and local journalists from getting into the region at all until recently. Some journalists have started to get near to the fighting now, but with little freedom to move around, so the veil of secrecy is being lifted slowly, and we keep hearing of horrific violence long after the fact.

That’s why the eyewitness account from Doctors Without Borders — known by its French acronym MSF — of recent brutality has become a key piece of evidence in the ongoing conflict.

The group said its clearly marked MSF car and two public buses travelling behind it were stopped on a road by Ethiopian soldiers. Their driver was beaten but allowed back into the vehicle, but the organization said the passengers on the buses were offloaded, the men and women separated and the men, who numbered at least four, were shot at point blank range.

It’s a horrific account, but what’s worse is that it seems to be a regular occurrence in region, as stories of massacres and other violence keep emerging, usually long after the fact and always difficult to verify.

Sexual violence

On Monday, the United Nations called for a stop to indiscriminate and targeted attacks against civilians in Tigray, including rape and other forms of sexual violence.
