Alert!! According to our reliable source in Ethiopia, the lying regime in Ethiopia is preparing a make-believe story of atrocities committed in areas that were controlled by the Tigray Army in the Amhara and Afar regions. Lying is not new to the Abiy regime. Abiy has lied to the UN Secretary-General and multiple foreign officials in the past but this time his regime is trying to lie to the whole world so that Tigray Army and TPLF are tainted as killers and accused as genociders. As you all know the Abiy and Isaias regime in Eritrea have been accused of a serious crime against humanity in Tigray. It is a matter of time before they are held accountable. We[Diaspora] should do our best to expose the sinister plan and educate the international community. The international community should not be left for Abiy and his lying foot soldiers to be confused and accept the 'both sides do it" account in this tragedy. Tragedy should not be normalized.

Mark, 14-12-21 - We commonly hear these days the Prime Minister of Ethiopia, his supporters and propaganda machine extensively stating that they are fighting against Western countries who, they say, are supporting the people of Tigray in the Tigray conflict. Thus, demonstrations have been held condemning Western countries and international media outlets. State and social media have been carrying out an intensified propaganda, going to the extent of calling the USA terrorist.
Special UN rights council session expected on Ethiopia this week (AFP) - The United Nations Human Rights Council is expected to host a special session on the civil war in Ethiopia this week, following an urgent request from the European Union.
In a letter sent to the council president, the EU called for the UN's top rights body to swiftly address the deteriorating situation in Ethiopia
TEAO 12-10-21 -Over the past two days, there have been some media reports, citing a brief statement by the World Food Program in Ethiopia (WFP Ethiopia), that Tigray forces have looted food stock that had been stored in the city of Kombolcha. While this baseless claim has received undeserved coverage, the truth of the matter is that at no time during their stay in Kombolcha did Tigrayan forces ever loot aid meant for those in desperate need of emergency assistance.
Images of a weapons stockpile have been shared on Facebook in Ethiopia alongside a claim that the arms cache was recently seized in Debre Sina, Ethiopia. But the claim is false: these are old photos of a rebel from the former Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) sitting next to a pile of weapons in Addis Ababa in 1991 following the Ethiopian Civil War that ended in the same year. The Abiy and Amhara Elite lying machine has no bounds. Innocent people who were paraded as prisoners of war may not speak out of fear but pictures do! Tigray Army withdrew Debresina of its own will. No matter how Abiy spins the current withdrawal, the truth is the withdrawal was not because of 'General' Abiy's military capability. If we have to give Abiy the credit it is that he was smart enough to fly in to places Tigray Army left without wasting precious time. He did not give time for the Tigray Army to announce the completion of the withdrawal. Zi Westelu Arada Eyu!!
Michael Rubin December 08, 2021 07:00 AM - Today, Ethiopia is rapidly becoming the new Syria.
In November 2020, Tigrayan leadership rejected Ethiopian Premier Abiy Ahmed's order to postpone elections. They feared that he sought to follow the path of self-described reformers who consolidate dictatorship. Abiy reacted with fury, sought to decapitate the Tigrayan military leadership, and then dispatched the Ethiopian army to Mekelle, the capital of the Tigray state. While Ethiopian officials insisted Abiy's battle was just with the Tigray People's Liberation Front, the army not only denied food to the entire Tigray Region but also closed Tigrayan businesses in Addis Ababa and rounded up ethnic Tigrayans in internment camps. To be a Tigrayan in Abiy's Ethiopia is to be a dead man walking.
TEAO 12-09-21 -Tigray Government Message to Diaspora on the Occasion of the Dec 9th World Wide Demonstration Denouncing Genocide in Tigray
Joint Statement on Detentions in Ethiopia We, Australia, Canada, Denmark, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States, are profoundly concerned by recent reports of the Ethiopian government's detention of large numbers of Ethiopian citizens on the basis of their ethnicity and without charge. The Ethiopian government's announcement of a State of Emergency on November 2 is no justification for the mass detention of individuals from certain ethnic groups (Tigrayans).
Isaac M. 12.06.21 - Dear Amb. Feltman, I watched your interview of 1st December with ESAT with bewilderment and dismay. I respect your right to express your views using any media outlet you think is fit for your purposes. I also appreciate your endeavor to reach out to the noises of the government in the diaspora and inside Ethiopia. However, from a top diplomat and statesman of a democratic country like the United States, I would expect some ethical standards, sense of duty and respect for victims of heinous international crimes to dictate your conscience and deeds.
Tigray External Affairs Office: Weekly Briefing Dec 03, 2021 TEAO 12-06-21 -For over 5 weeks since October 18, humanitarian cargo movements had come to a grinding halt. On November 26, and 27, a total of 78 trucks arrived in Tigray. While the arrival of any number of trucks is a welcome development, the 78 trucks that arrived pale in comparison to the number of trucks needed to meet the needs of millions of people at risk of starvation. In fact, aid agencies had revised the number of required trucks per day to 282 from a previous estimate of 100...
Peace Is Still Possible in Ethiopia By Senator Chris Coons December 6, 2021 - If Abiy and his opponents continue on their current path, they risk triggering not only massive bloodshed and economic collapse but the fracture of the Ethiopian state as we know it. Ethiopia is at risk of becoming this generation's Yugoslavia: a great nation and a regional leader that violently shatters along ethnic lines.
(Mekelle) 11-29-21 - Tigray Government sent two letters to the UN Secretary about the ongoing genocidal campaign by the Abiy regime and the wide-scale mass arrest of Tigrayans in Ethiopia, the continued support by UAE, Iran, and Turkey to arm the Abiy regime to commit genocide. The government asked the Secretary-General to use his good office to help stop the ongoing genocidal campaign in Tigray.
Getachew Reda Update (12-06-21) : We left #NorthShoa, #Kombolcha & #Dessie as part of our plan. There was no organized unit to 'liberate' these towns and the residents know it & #Abiy's generals know it. Things are going according to our plan. The rest is just circus.
As we always say, #TigrayShallPrevail!

TMH TV: Interview with Tegadalay WeldeSelasie WoldeMichael - Dec 14, 2021
Tigray TV interview with Getachew Reda, TPLF Executive Member - Dec 08, 2021. The problem with the current withdrawal of Tigray Army from the gates of Addis is that the withdrawal was sudden and done in the face of a well planned propaganda campaign by the Abiy regime and Amhara war mongers. It is true the Diaspora was also instrumental in creating confusion by thickening the fogs of war but the main problem is that of how the leaders and commanders communicated with the public. Tigrayans are not new to withdrawal and retreat but when they are told the enemy is finished and has a week long life left, they believed. Regardless, the enemy should know Tigrayans are resilient people. They have never left an adversity unconquered. What ever the unspoken reasons were for the current withdrawal, they will be overcome. Tigray Will prevail and the enemy will know it in a very short time. Zeru Hagos Dec 08, 2021
