National Protest Against the Ongoing War on Tigray on 02/25 – 02/27/2021

Eritrea Ethiopia Tigray

A call for national protest the ongoing war on Tigray starting from 2/25/2021 to 2/28/2021, in three different locations in Washington, DC.

The Protest is being held to urge the United States and international community to act now to pressure the Ethiopian government to open unimpeded humanitarian corridors, restore communications, power, banking, healthcare, and other public services to all of Tigray, to take measures to prevent sexual assault against women and children in Tigray, commitment to a peaceful resolution of the regional war by all actors involved, and the immediate and full withdrawal of Eritrean forces from Tigray.

On November 4th, 2020, the unelected Ethiopian prime minister Abiy Ahmed Ali, in coordination with Eritrean dictator President Isaias Afwerki, launched a war against the elected regional government of Tigray. Despite Abiy Ahmed’s November 28 declaration of victory, this devastating war continues with no end in sight. The Ethiopian federal government has largely blocked communications and humanitarian aid in the region, over 60,000 refugees have fled to Sudan, 4.5 million Tegaru in Tigray need immediate food assistance, and the war has internally displaced almost 2.3 million people within Tigray. Starting from, February 25th to 27th, 2021 thousands will gather nationwide to protest the war on Tigray and call for the full withdrawal of Ethiopian and Eritrean forces perpetrating mass destruction, war crimes, and ethnic cleansing against the people of Tigray. We the Tegaru diaspora and allies of Tigray urge the United States act now to pressure the Ethiopian government to open unimpeded humanitarian corridors, restore communications, power, banking, healthcare, and other public services to all of Tigray, to take measures to prevent sexual assault against women and children in Tigray, and commitment to a peaceful resolution of the regional war by all actors involved.

    All what they have been taught is to kill, steal and rape women. Thanks to them the world trained themselves how to traffic people in the desert and enslave people.

    slaves in US and EU did no vail to us but destroy our culture, heritage and kill our people . Beacuse they are trained by the Isayas, bug, blood sucker in Sawa, where many of them were tortured and trained to do the same to others. That is why they have no self-esteem and dignity for themselves .

    Abiy and Menilik have many resemblances :
    Via Antonelli’s courier, Menelik informed the King of Italy that he would like the Italian soldiers to occupy Asmara, in order to discourage the imperial pretensions of Mengesha Yohannes (the son of Emperor Yohannes).” “There after,” added Menelik, “God will give me the throne that for many years I have had the right to have. (1986, Chris Prouty, p.61)” Abiy , likewise, told Sudan to occupy the teritories that they occuppied now.Banda begets , give birth to, banda.

    Amara elites have the same characteristics as shown above. Forget eritreans they are always treated as commodities in the past and present by Italians and now by smugglers. They now felt empowered by stealling and looting and raping which is the only accessible job for them. They replaced mafis and robbers of the past in Addis Ababa-robbing public servants and business men in Addis ababa.
