This is How The Fascist Oromo Army of Ethiopia Treated Christians of Mekelle

Horrific Video Brings More Pain to New Zealand’s Tigrayan Community

A horrific video which appears to show three people being burned alive in Ethiopia has sparked outrage from the Tigrayan community in Wellington.

The video, which has been shared on social media, appeared to show armed men pushing three people into the flames. The victims are believed to be Tigrayan, according to leaders of that ethnic group.

The Tigray region in northern Ethiopia has been locked in a civil war with Ethiopian federal forces and its allies since November 2020.

As well as allegations of human rights abuses from both sides of the conflict, including executions, torture and rape, more than two million have been forced to flee their homes since it began.

“I didn’t want to see [the video] but everyone was calling me and sending it to me,” says Rahwa Hagos, chairperson of Wellington’s 100-strong Tigrayan community.

“Everyone was crying and saying we need to do something. I felt helpless. What can I do?” she says. “They were laughing as they pushed those people into the fire. I can’t believe a human being will do that to another human being. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from, a person is a person.”

The Ethiopian Government Communication Service confirmed the incident, although the video has not been authenticated.

The gruesome event, which is understood to have taken place in the northwestern Benishangul-Gumuz region, was further anguish for the Tigrayan community in Wellington, who fear for the safety of their loved ones.

Hagos, who is from Tigray’s third largest city of Shire, came to New Zealand with her family in 2001 as a refugee from Sudan.

Her mother, Shawaynesh, a New Zealand citizen, went back to Tigray in 2017 to look after her elderly mother. They have since lost touch.

“When the civil war started we tried to get her out, but we couldn’t because it wasn’t safe,” she says. “We didn’t hear from her till January 2021 and even then she had to travel miles to find a connection to call to say she was okay. They have no access to communications, banking, electricity, often no water supply, no medicines. She’s been worried about my grandmother not getting her medication.”

Civilians are at the mercy of it all, she says.

In June last year Hagos’ mother, who used to work at Wellington’s Commonsense Organics, was able to make a minute-long call through an aid organisation.

“She had lined up all night long to get her turn. She said ‘We are okay, we are surviving, but we need money.’ She is capable of looking after herself and family but all their bank accounts have been frozen, so she can’t access her own money.”

She was unable to move around freely because she was too scared, she says.

Hagos, who lives in Wellington with her husband, Hancock, and their two young daughters, has taken part in protests to draw the New Zealand Government’s attention to the crisis.

Foreign Affairs Minister Nanaia Mahuta announced in June last year the Government would give $3.25m towards the humanitarian response in Ethiopia adding Aotearoa was “deeply concerned at the worsening humanitarian situation and food insecurity in Tigray”.

Hagos remained frustrated with the United Nations, saying the organisation was “not doing anything apart from releasing statements.

“Statements don’t do anything,” she says. “The atrocities we have seen… It feels like no one is paying attention. People are losing their lives every day just for being Tigrayan. It just blows your mind.

“We want people to know what is happening. We hope people will keep pushing the UN and people who have power [to act].”

Former New Zealand prime minister Helen Clark was one of the few she saw asking the UN to do something about it, she says.

Clark, former administrator of the United Nations Development Programme, has said war crimes were being committed in Tigray. Sexual violence had become a weapon of war. In an article published last year in Foreign Policy, co-written with Rachel Kyte, Clark said there was evidence of widespread and systematic sexual violence perpetrated by men in uniform.

She called on the world to “step in now and call the assaults what they are: a war crime.”

Hagos cries every day worrying about her family in Tigray. She can only hope they are safe.

Since that June call there has been only one message from her mother just before Christmas letting them know she was alive. And since then, silence.

Issac Ghebremiskel lives in Wellington with his wife and four children but has grave fears for his family in Tigray’s capital Mekelle.

Hi 63-year-old sister was arrested twice in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa “just for being Tigrayan”, he says. She escaped with civil war and is now living in Aotearoa.

Ghebremiskel and his wife have been unable to make contact with the rest of their family.

“There is no Internet, no phone. It’s blackout. They don’t have any access to banks. We don’t know how they are surviving. We don’t know if they are alive,” he says. “It’s difficult to get [food] aid in to Tigray. The government is using starvation like a weapon.”

Conflict – the fallout

  • Civil war began after a dispute between Tigray’s regional government, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, and the Ethiopian Government, led by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.
  • Tigray has long fought to self-govern, despite the federal government’s desire for unity. Both sides declared war after Tigray held its own elections in September.
  • Almost 40 percent of Tigrayans are suffering an extreme lack of food, after 15 months of conflict. Across all three conflict-affected regions of the north more than 9 million people are in need of humanitarian food assistance, according to the World Food Programme.
  • Killings, looting and destruction of health centres and farming infrastructure have caused humanitarian needs to surge.
  • In late January, the International Committee of the Red Cross was finally able to make its first delivery of medical supplies since September 2021 into Mekelle.

The 3rd Phase of Oromo Jihad Against Christian Tigray | 1985

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 14, 2021

✞✞✞[ኦሪት ዘዳግም ምዕራፍ ፴፪፥ ፮፡፯]✞✞✞

ደንቆሮ ብልሃተኛም ያልሆንህ ሕዝብ ሆይ፥ ለእግዚአብሔር ይህንን ትመልሳለህ? የገዛህ አባትህ አይደለምን? የፈጠረህና ያጸናህ እርሱ ነው። የዱሮውን ዘመን አስብ፥ የብዙ ትውልድንም ዓመታት አስተውል፤ አባትህን ጠይቅ፥ ያስታውቅህማል፤ ሽማግሌዎችህን ጠይቅ፥ ይነግሩህማል።”

[Deuteronomy 32:6-7]
Is this the way you repay the LORD, you foolish and unwise people? Is he not your Father, your Creator,who made you and formed you?Remember the days of old, Consider the years of all generations. Ask your father, and he will inform you, Your elders, and they will tell you.

✞✞✞ [ኦሪት ዘዳግም ምዕራፍ ፬፡፱፤፲] ✞✞✞

እግዚአብሔር። ሕዝቡን ወደ እኔ ሰብስብ፥ በምድርም በሕይወት በሚኖሩበት ዘመን ሁሉ እኔን መፍራት ይማሩ ዘንድ፥ ልጆቻቸውንም ያስተምሩ ዘንድ ቃሌን አሰማቸዋለሁ ብሎ በተናገረኝ ጊዜ፥ በአምላክህ በእግዚአብሔር ፊት በኮሬብ በቆምህበት ቀን ዓይኖችህ ያዩትን ነገር እንዳትረሳ፥ በሕይወትህም ዘመን ሁሉ ከልብህ እንዳይወድቅ ተጠንቀቅ፥ ነፍስህንም በትጋት ጠብቅ፤ ለልጆችህም ለልጅ ልጆችህም አስታውቀው።

[Deuteronomy 4:9-10]
“Only give heed to yourself and keep your soul diligently, so that you do not forget the things which your eyes have seen and they do not depart from your heart all the days of your life; but make them known to your sons and your grandsons.”

💭 History repeats itself:

🔥 Amhara & Oromos bombing Tigray, Using Rape, Hunger & forced resettlement (Mengistu did it back then, Ahmed will do the same now) as a Weapon against People in Tigray for the past 130 years:-

👉 1. Menelik II. (1844 – 1913)

The Great Ethiopian Famine of 1888-1892

The great famine is estimated to have caused 3.5 million deaths. During Emperor Menilik’s Reign, Tigray was split into two regions, one of which he sold to the Italians who later named it Eritrea. Only two months after the death of Emperor Yohaness lV , Menelik signed the Wuchale treaty of 2 May 1889 conceding Eritrea to the Italians. It was not only Eritrea that Menelik gave away, he also had a hand in letting Djibouti be part of the French protectorate when he agreed the border demarcation with the French in 1887. Some huge parts of Tigray were put under Gonder. The Southern part, places like present day Alamata, Kobo etc. were put under Wello Amhara administration.

👉 2. Haile Selassie (1892 – 1975)

In 1943, at the request of the Emperor Haile Selassie, the Royal British Airforce bombed two towns – Mekelle and Corbetta. Thousands of defenseless civilians lost their lives as a result of aerial bombardment. It is recorded that ‘on 14th October [1943] 54 bombs dropped in Mekelle, 6th October 14 bombs followed by another 16 bombs on 9thOctober in Hintalo, 7th/9th October 32 bombs in Corbetta’. Between 2 and 5 million’ people died between 1958 and 1977 as a cumulative result. Haile Selassie, who was emperor at the time, refused to send any significant basic emergency food aid to the province of Tigray,

👉 3. Mengistu Hailemariam (1937 – )

1979 – 1985 + 1987

Due to organized government policies that deliberately multiplied the effects of the famine, around 1.2 million people died from this famine. Mengistu & his Children still alive & ‘well’ while Tigrayans starving again.

👉 4. Abiy Ahmed Ali (1976 – )

2018 – Until today: probably up to 500.000 already dead. 😠😠😠 😢😢😢 Unlike the past famine there is no natural or man-made drought, rather, Abiy simply uses war and hunger as a weapon. Abiy Ahmed sent his kids to America for safety, while bombing & starving Tigrayan kids!

In the past, and at present, the OLF (Oromo Liberation Front/ OLA) works together with Isaias Afewerkis’ ELF, TPLF, PP, ANM, EZEMA etc. So, are they all conspiring together against the ancient Christian people of Tigray so that they could be able to replace Ethiopia and create an Antichrist Islamic ‘Cush’ Caliphate of Oromia?

VOA: Ethiopian Holy City Reels in #TigrayGenocide | የኢትዮጵያ ቅድስት ከተማ በትግራይ ጭፍጨፋ ችግር ውስጥ ገብታለች

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 14, 2021

In past years, pilgrims and tourists have flocked to Axum, a holy city in the Tigray region of Ethiopia. Today, many of its streets are quiet, and many businesses are closed due to more than seven months of war involving the national government and a regional political party that led the ruling coalition for three decades. Continuing battles in the countryside are deepening a strain on the city.

Chemical Weapons & Heavy Artillery Sent Into Tigray For ‘Final’ Offensive

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 13, 2021

💭 My Note, connecting the dots:

According to this new report, rightly described as “horrifying”, Ethiopian Airlines is transporting weapons to Tigray via its commercial flight. Using commercial flight to transport weapons is prohibited worldwide.

It is very curious; preparing for The #TigrayGenocide, evil Abiy Ahmed and his luciferian overlords brought Tigrayans to occupy key positions nationally and internationally:

👉 Mr Tewolde Gebre Mariam Tesfay, Chief Executive Officer of Ethiopian Airlines

👉 His Holiness Abune Mathias, Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church

👉 Dr. Lia Tadesse Gebremedhin, Minister of Health of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia

👉 Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. Director-General of the World Health Organization

💭 Ethiopia today officially launched a preventive oral cholera vaccination campaign targeting 2 million people aged 1 year and above in Tigray. Of course, other vaccination will follow. O Father, The Merciful Lord Egziabher Almighty, please protect Your people.

Now, back to the main story:

Three independent reports confirm that chemical weapons arrived in Mekelle. According to new information received tonight from a new source, 42 tons of chemical weapons have arrived on Mekelle through Djibouti.

Flyethiopian is transporting weapons to Tigray via its commercial flight.Using commercial flight to transport weapons is prohibited! Reports the weapons are chemical’s that are prohibited to use internationally

Three independent reports confirm that chemical weapons arrived in Mekelle. According to new information received tonight from a new source, 42 tons of chemical weapons have arrived on Mekelle through Djibouti.

The chemical weapons arrived in Mekelle from Addis Abeba on flight ET3160 ETAUQ on June 5, B789 departing from Addis Abeba at 08:22. The plane is reported to have delivered a phosphorus chemical. The carrying capacity of the plane is 51 tons.

Situation Report published in SR 163 that: “40 tons of Phosphorus chemicals have arrived in Mekelle Airport on 06 June 2021 based on internal sources. This appears part of the preparation for what is called the “final” war.” It is reported that drones may be used to deploy the chemical weapons.

Also, heavy artillery has arrived in Djibouti with Ethiopia as the destination. The artillery and chemical weapons would have been possibly purchased in Russia, Ukraine, and China.

It is reported that many airplanes are circling tonight over the city of Mekelle.

Sources in Tigray report that over 130 military vehicles passed through the town of Wuqro in the direction of Adigrat, to prepare for the next offensive. Rumors say that this ‘last’ offensive will be “very heavy”. This was reported on 12 June 2021.

Assena TV reported that ENDF moved heavy artillery from various directions into Tigray on Friday 11 June 2021 for the ‘final’ offensive. More than 271 buses full of Fano Amhara forces and ENDF entered to Shire and Axum via Endabaguna.

Assena TV further reported that 180 military vehicles of ENDF moved to Mekelle from around Tembien and went to the direction of Wukro. 14 of them were carrying heavy artillery.

The 180 vehicles went towards Maymekden and Wukro direction to deceive the public and later returned to Mekelle via Qwha. Another ENDF force moved from Hawzen to Mekelle and in replacement other ENDF forces were sent to Hawzen.

Another ENDF force has entered Tigray with 18 orals/vehicles and now they are in Agula camp after traveling from Negelle Borona zone of the Oromia region.

#TigrayGenocide | An Open Letter to President Biden | ክፍት ደብዳቤ ለ ፕሬዝደንት ባይድን

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 19, 2021

An Open Letter to HE Mr. Joseph R. Biden, Jr., 46th President of the United States of America

From Goitom Aregawi (Ztseat)

Tigray’s grandchildren shall not wait for a century to even get recognition of what their forefathers went through, like what happened to the generations of Armenian survivors.

Mr. President,

I am writing this appreciating Your Excellency’s historic decision to recognize the Armenian Genocide, and with hopes in appealing to your administration to stop the ongoing genocide in Tigray, Ethiopia -a conflict with distinctively similar features to the Armenian Genocide.

Mr. President,

Last year you promised Americans and the world that you would make human rights a central guidepost of your foreign policy. You said that you would pursue a values-based foreign policy. You also said that ‘failing to call the atrocities against the Armenian people a genocide would pave the way for future mass atrocities. Calling the atrocities on Armenians “Genocide” in the first 100 days in your office shows your commitment to human rights.

Mr. President,

I salute you for this historic declaration and your principled position, with hopes that it will right the wrong done to all those Armenians who perished in the state-sponsored genocide 106 years back by the Ottoman Turks, which exterminated an estimated 1-1.5 million Armenians(more than 90% of the Armenian population, by then). I also hope this extends to all parts of the world. In fact, your action cannot be more timely than now when it comes to the ongoing genocide in Tigray, in the Horn of Africa.

Mr. President,

As the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stated, “History teaches us that if we ignore its darkest chapters, we are destined to witness the horrors of the past be repeated”; so, your declaration was an important milestone in history and instilled the hope that similar crimes will be prevented before being repeated.

Released by the Armenian Genocide Museum in Yerevan, this 1915 picture shows soldiers surveying the skulls of victims in an Armenian village

Unfortunately, the world has repeatedly failed to learn from its mistakes in the past and has repeated them time and time again over the years, as the Holocaust and the Rwandan Genocide showed.

In 1994, the world acted as a ‘bystander’, very much reluctant to act on time and stop the Genocide before its devastation plagued the nation. March 25, 1998, President Bill Clinton expressed “a deep regret” for failing to act on time and stop it.

After the tragic Rwanda Genocide, the international community, in one voice, echoed “Never Again.” Many of us hoped such horrors wouldn’t happen again – ‘Never Ever, again!’

Tragically, 27 years after the Rwandan Genocide, similar atrocities are being committed under Your Excellency’s watch in Tigray.

The Genocide in the Tigray region of Ethiopia, a genoicide that I have witnessed with my own eyes, could even be at a scale worse than that of the Armenian’s and Rwandan’s.

For more than 6 months now, Ethiopian and Eritrean armies, Amhara forces (Amhara Special forces, Amhara militias, Amhara Fano-an armed youth squad) have been committing a well-planned, deliberate, well-executed act of ethnic cleansing against the Tigrayan people. The international community once again appears to be embracing a spectator role, reluctant to act decisively and stop the genocide in Tigray which is unfolding before your very eyes. Many, including your senior officials, are issuing statements of concern, yet to this point there is a total absence of concrete action on the ground that can put a stop to this atrocious genocide against the Tigrayan people.

Between November 2020 and March 2021, more than 150 mass massacre sites have been identified by a team at the University of Ghent in Belgium. There have been numerous additional massacres since this study was conducted. Between 70,000-150,000 innocent Tigrayans are estimated to have been exterminated in these mass murders. The most notable massacres are as follows:

  • The Mai-Kadra massacre which according to a report by Amnesty International, took more than 600 lives
  • Axum massacre tallying more than 800 civilian deaths, according to AP’s Feb 18 report of witness accounts
  • Dengelet Massacre (a March 22nd report by the CNN put the figure at more than 100 casualties; Europe External Programme with Africa put the figure at 150; my witnesses put the figure to be 165)
  • Mahbere-Dego (a leaked graphic Video and witness accounts collected by CNN and BBC Africa suggest 39-73 young men to have been killed between Jan 15 and 16; my witnesses estimated 193 civilians to have been killed, including on the subsequent days)
  • Abi Adi- an April 7th report by The Telegraph shows that 182 civilians were killed on February 10 alone]
  • Bora (more than 160 civilian deaths occurred, according to a March 19th witnesses report by Los Angeles Times)
  • The Zelambessa massacre, killing 56-72 civilians, according to reports by Tigray Television, and eepa.

In addition, there are multiple cases of massacres in Sheraro, Humera Dansha, Maykinetal, Selekleka, Irob, Debre-Abay, Idaga-hamus, Adwa, Shire, Humera, Idaga-Arbi, Adigrat, Hawzen, Edaga-Berhe, Miriena, Seglamen, Hagere-selam, Hitsats, Samre, Gijjet, Hiwane, Nebelet, Wukro,Workamba, Killele, Azeba e.t.c. These are just a few of the more than 150 massacre sites where Eritrean, Ethiopian, and Amhara armies systematically slaughtered civilians of all age groups (as young as 2 years of age, up to 93 years old).

Thousands of women and underage girls (as young as 6 years old) in Tigray have been gang-raped, in an intentional use of rape as a weapon of war; in some cases the rapists burn the victims genitaliaand uterus with hot iron rods, and insert foreign objectsto make them infertile. Various media outlets, UN bodies, including the United Nations Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict, in addition to other humanitarian organizations, have talked extensively about such acts of crimes on humanity. Ethiopia’s government has even verified these claims.

Tens of thousands of Tigrayan members of Ethiopian Defense forces are disarmed and detained arbitrarily in various unknown concentration camps. Many among them are feared to have been executed. Likewise, Tigrayans throughout Ethiopia are profiled and indiscriminately arrested for months; Tigrayan civil servants in Federal government bureaus have been fired from their jobs; Tigrayan businesses have been shut. Tigrayans in Ethiopia are enduring all kinds of humiliation and harassment for who they are. On April 29th, the Associated Press released a report detailing this ethnic profiling, arbitrary detention, and purging of Tigrayans.

To induce mass starvation and destitution of Tigray, Ethiopian, Eritrean armies, and Amhara forces are burning crops, seeds, cutting trees, destroying agricultural tools, burning grasses (food for the cattle), killing livestock, especially targeting oxen and donkeys, as well as destroying small dams and irrigation canals in a systematic campaign of crippling the agricultural sector. The World Peace Foundation produced a 58-page comprehensive report about such targeted attacks. According to reports by UN agencies and Tigray’s interim government, currently, more than 2.3 people in Tigray are internally displaced and 4.5 million people are in urgent need of humanitarian aid. 50-100 people have already died of hunger. Like the Turks, the Ethiopian government, the Eritrean Army, and Amhara forces have tried everything they can to block humanitarian aid from reaching the people that they have systematically starved, with the intent of decimating the entire Tigrayan population. Like the Turks, the Ethiopian and Eritrean armies as well as the Amhara forces are utilizing starvation as a weapon of war, and they want the effects to sustain for years to come if in case the international community steps up and provides life-sustaining humanitarian aid.

In addition, like in the Armenian Genocide, Ethiopia’s government and Eritrean and Amhara allies have enabled rape, sexual slavery, starvation, and the destruction of civilian livelihood as a weapon of war.

Ethiopian, Eritrean armies, and Amhara forces are destroying health facilities, clean water infrastructure, and water pumps so greater numbers of Tigrayans will die of water-borne illnesses and other communicable diseases, gun inflicted injuries, and non-communicable diseases; this is a damage maximization strategy to decimate the Tigrayan Civilian Population. For months, Tigray was left in the dark, with electricity and telecommunication services cut; banking services stopped; business transactions placed on hold; roads blocked; with much of these grave atrocities on humanity hidden from the world. By blocking access to the media and to rights organizations, these horrific crimes have been successfully committed in the dark.

Ethiopia’s government and its allies are destroying schools, roads, a variety of civilian infrastructures, heritages [including AlNejashi Mosque, Debredamo monastery, Dengolat St Mary monastery e.t.c], private houses, and factories for the sake of destroying Tigray, including its history and identity, and leaving it in indefinite destitution and humiliation. In order to erase Tigray, entire villages and small towns are indiscriminately shelled with heavy artillery, and bombarded with missiles from drones; private houses ransacked, systematically burnt, and destroyed; Some Villages and small towns are completely turned to ashes, erased.

Amhara militia, Fano, Amhara special forces are also committing ethnic cleansing and Genocide in Western Tigray. There is an estimated 1 million (A study by the Ethiopian Ministry of Health puts it at 1.2 million) Tigrayans who used to live in Western Tigray that are no longer there. They are either killed, forcibly displaced or kept in concentration camps. Some 700,000 Tigrayans accounted for so far have been forcibly evicted from their lands and homes empty-handed, now sheltered in many towns in Tigray and in Sudan. Tens of thousands are feared to be dying in concentration camps there. Their prosperities, their lands, their houses are confiscated by the Amhara regional forces.

After committing 100% Ethnic cleansing of Tigrayans in Western Tigray, which Secretary Blinken also repeatedly stated, the Amhara have brought hundreds of thousands of ethnic Amhara from Gojjam and Gonder, transferring them in to the houses and places originally inhabited by ethnic Tigray for Generations, making Western Tigray a “homogeneously Amhara” land. Men are not spared no matter what; thousands of women and under 7 children are forced to take the Amhara identity in order to remain in their homes. The women must be willing to be a concubine to an Amhara militia, though. Tigrayan traces have been erased. Recently the Amhara Regional Government has started illegally (yet officially) leasing farmlands that belong to Western Tigray to Amhara investors.

These are the same methods employed by the Turks on the Armenians 106 years ago.

Mr. President,

Today’s genocide against Tigray is the same as the hundred-year-old genocide against Armenia.

Our kids and grandkids shouldn’t wait 106 years to get recognition of what their forefathers went through, like what generations of Armenian survivors endured.

Mr. President,

With the cumbersome evidence on your hand, it must by now be clear to you and the international community that Ethiopia’s government and allies are on a campaign of completely destroying the Tigrayan population, erasing Tigray altogether, just like what the Turks did against the Armenians.

The international community has repeatedly witnessed the untrustworthiness and the Genocidal appetite of Ethiopian and Eritrean governments and allies.

Unfortunately, what we have witnessed over the past six months is an international mechanism failing to do anything tangible to avert the situation in Tigray.

Mr. President,

While the courageous decision you took to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide is to be commended on its own, what is the use of acknowledging historical genocide if it can not stop an ongoing genocide under your watch.

I urge you, Mr. President, to name an investigation commission composed of the experts that studied genocides including that of Armenia and Rwanda, and deploy these same experts to Tigray. I urge your administration and the Western world to name the Ethiopian and Eritrean states-sponsored Campaign of decimating Tigrayan population in Ethiopia with the proper descriptive name “genocide”. In the meanwhile, Your Excellency needs to do everything in your capacity to stop the ongoing Genocide in Tigray before it is too late. The United States of America is more than equipped to stop it. What it needs is your attention and your strong leadership.

Mr. President,

Now that the war is in its seventh month, Tigrayans do not think a solution will come from the UN Security Council given China’s transactional politics and Russia’s soft heart for dictators. Over 6 million people in Tigray are in imminent danger of extinction due to a paralyzed international mechanism of dealing with grave situations. They Rather look into you, the free world you lead, and the institutions of the free world for a decisive action to stop it.

Therefore, I appeal to you, your Excellency,

  1. America and the Western world shall be bold enough to categorize the atrocities as “Genocide” and “famine” with regards to the crisis in Tigray.
  2. America shall mobilize the Western world to use all the leverage and the existing diplomatic, economic, and military machineries at its disposal to put palpable necessary pressure on Ethiopian and Eritrean governments to put a stop to the ongoing Genocide on Tigray.
  3. The United States government, and western allies includingEuropean Union, the UK government, the governments of Canada, Australia, New Zealand, shall sanction the governments of Ethiopia and Eritrea for the continued Civilian massacres, use of Sexual violence, induced hunger, and destruction of civilian infrastructures and livelihood as weapons of war;
  4. A USA commission should be put in place to determine the genocide committed against Tigrayans.
  5. It is time for AFRICOM and NATO to militarily intervene (by triggering Art 5) in Tigray
  6. To provide rapid, unconditional, unfettered, and sustained delivery of humanitarian aid and items essential to survival, including establishing a “lifeline humanitarian corridor” from Sudan to Tigray under a demilitarized route designated for safe passage of humanitarian supplies.
  7. To ensure the immediate and verifiable cessation of all forms of hostilities;
  8. Ensure total withdrawal of all internal and external forces, including Eritrean armed forces and Amhara Special Forces and militia from all Tigray parts to their deployment lines before 4th November, 2020.
  9. Enforce “No fly zone” across the skies of Tigray.
  10. An immediate joint UN-USA-EU independent investigation in the war crimes and grave crimes against humanity in Tigray; and for the perpetrators to be held accountable.
  11. America and other great powers need to scale up the humanitarian aid to a point that is necessary to avert the impending humanitarian catastrophe.
  12. America and other western powers shall press on the United Nations with all the leverage they have to put Tigray under a UN-mandated international interim civil and security administration (Using the Kosovo model).

I thank you, Mr President
