TMH TV: Getachew Reda TPLF Executive Leader on Current Issues - May 2021

Getachew said Ethiopia was doomed from the get-go when Abiy assumed power. He said it is unlikely that Ethiopia will continue as a country thanks to the Amhara Elite's infatuation with dominance. Getachew in the exclusive interview said he sees no hope for Ethiopia to remain as a country because of the untold atrocities the Abiy government and Amhara forces have unleashed on Tigray. Getachew assured Tigrayans of victory and acknowledged that his organization did not live up to protect the people but is committed going forward to do all in its power to safeguard the people and Tigray!

EU envoy: Ethiopian leadership vowed to 'wipe out' Tigrayans
NAIROBI, Kenya -- Ethiopia's leaders in closed-door talks with a European Union special envoy earlier this year said "they are going to wipe out the Tigrayans for 100 years," the envoy said this week, warning that such an aim "looks for us like ethnic cleansing."

Even Hitler did not declare his evil plan like this. A small poor and destitute govt of Abiy declaring such an evil plan in the open is beyond astonishment. The international community should take action immediately. ዓምሓሩ እንትብሉ፤ እኛም አዉቀን ጉድጛድ ጭረናል! ኽንረአኤ ኢና መን ንመን ከምዘጥፍእ!!. [Zeru Hagos June 18, 2021]

Interview with Tegadalay General Migbey from Tigray Defense Force(TDF) - June 2021

What an interview! The secret behind why Tigrawaynet is so unique and why Tigrayans have endured for so long and have been owners of a very splendid history of bravery and victory against all odds! The General is an amazing narrator besides his military acumen. No wonder Tigray is so confident of its victory despite the many losses of its contemporary leaders. Wai, enkua Tigraway konku! Isayas A. June 2021]

Don't Turn Away From These Images and These Crimes
Nicholas Kristof (NYT) - Meet Rahel, 19, a human face of a brutal ethnic cleansing now underway in Ethiopia. "There were three soldiers," she said as she lay on a bed in a crowded hospital. "They were asking me to take off my dress. I refused. I said, "You can kill me." The men paid no heed and gang-raped her, part of a scorched-earth counterinsurgency campaign of murder, rape, pillage and famine by Ethiopian and Eritrean troops.

Axumities Awaken, Egypt Hearken!
Yared Huluf -To begin I would like to reiterate Mani (216 - 274 AD) the founder of the Manichaeism religion of the Sassanian Empire, who stated that the Aksumite Empire was one of four great kingdoms (Roman, Persian and Chinese Empires) of the ancient world stretching from 100 BC - 900 AD.To outline and state the significance of this world power, we must account for its assets and achievements. Aksum produced and exported....

Facebook's press release today on shutting down Abiy's large dis-information network on Facebook and Instagram.
We removed a network of accounts, Pages and Groups in Ethiopia for coordinated inauthentic behavior (CIB). It targeted domestic audiences in its own country. The people behind this activity coordinated with one another and used fake accounts as a central part of their operations to mislead people

(Dear readers, as you can tell we have completely ignored Abiy and his regime and stopped covering Ethiopian news as well. We could care less an iota about what happen to Ethiopia ever since the Amhara elites and Abiy foot soldiers started to slaughter Tigrayans. We are also saddened to see most Ethiopians be willing victims of Abiy instead of rising up much as the Tigrayans have done. Having said this, we want to let you know Facebook is finally catching up with Abiy cyber warriors now that Andargachew Tsige and cohorts have denounced the USA. The emperor is becoming more naked by the day! And we like it! --Aigaforum June 16, 2021)

NYT Reports The War in Tigray
(NYT) Abiy Ahmed, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2019 for brokering a deal with Eritrea. However, the nation is now in the grips of a civil war, as Mr. Ahmed undertakes a military campaign that has killed thousands and displaced millions. In the northern region of Tigray, there have been widespread reports of massacres, human rights abuses and a looming famine.

Ezana Sehay 2016-06-15 - It goes with out saying, The Weeknd, aka Abel Tesfay is one of the most successful and beloved entertainers of his generation. Nevertheless, despite his status in the industry (entertainment) he is recognized for his dawn to earth attitude. A couple of years ago, during the Grammys award ceremony, Adele, another extraordinary singer is quoted to have said, "how is this guy (the Weeknd) so talented and handsome yet so humble".

Starvation has become a weapon of war in Ethiopia. U.S. action is urgent
Washington Post Editorial Board -June 15, 2021 at 10:31 a.m. PDT - FOR MONTHS humanitarian agencies have been warning that famine could spread in the Ethiopian region of Tigray if government forces and allied troops from neighboring Eritrea did not end a brutal campaign to subjugate the area. Now that emergency has arrived. U.N. agencies reported last week that more than 350,000 of Tigray's 6 million people are living in famine conditions, and 2 million more are at risk.

Amen and Kudos to the Post Editorial Board. Now is time for action not for another procrastination in the name of Sovereignty and diplomacy. Tigrayan Lives Matter!!

Inviting Foreign Countries to Commit Mass Atrocities in Tigray: How Ethiopia is abusing its Sovereignty.
Prof Desta, Asayehgn 06-14-21 - As stated in the international humanitarian and human rights law, the United States applying "sovereignty as responsibility" is attempting to apply economic and political sanction against Ethiopian Government because the Ethiopian National Federal Forces in collaborators with other foreign governments has committed crimes of mass atrocities related to genocide, starvation, looting and the raping of underage girls and women in Tigray, Ethiopia.

Abiy Ahmed: The Nobel Prize winner who went to war
Abiy Ahmed was once widely praised outside the country for his reforming zeal but that image. His journey from darling of the international community to condemnation has been swift.
The West was to quick to embolden this man even though they were warned. Now Tigrayans are paying for their stupidity. However glad they have realized their mistake. Abiy's obituary is being written every day. It seems his days are numbered not as the foreign ruler of Tigray but as the head of remaining Ethiopia.

Our Shared Agenda for Global Action to Build Back Better

We, the leaders of the Group of Seven, met in Cornwall on 11-13 June 2021 determined to beat COVID-19 and build back better. We are deeply concerned by the ongoing conflict in Tigray region and reports of an unfolding major humanitarian tragedy, including potentially hundreds of thousands in famine conditions. We condemn ongoing atrocities, including widespread sexual violence, and we call for an immediate cessation of hostilities, unimpeded humanitarian access to all areas and the immediate withdrawal of Eritrean forces. We urge all parties to pursue a credible political process, which is the only solution to the crisis.

SEBHDRI INTERNATIONAL CIVIL SOCIETY OF TIGRAY : A petition delivered to: UNSC, EU, UK, Australia, and many more on the developing Tigray crisis.
We are writing this urgent letter to urge your government to help stop and find a lasting solution to the ongoing dangerous genocidal war in Ethiopia's Tigray, a war that comprises all types of crimes including unique kind of gangrape and hunger as a weapon. Our Sebhidri source on the ground as we prepare this document is telling that Abiy Ahmad and Isaias Afeworki have prepared to use incendiary petrochemical white phosphorous against the people of Tigray.

G7 Leaders Can't Ignore Ethiopia's Looming Famine
G7 leaders meeting this week should galvanize an immediate global response to the humanitarian disaster unfolding in Ethiopia's Tigray region. Yesterday, the United Nations and other aid agencies warned that some 350,000 people are already experiencing famine-like conditions in Tigray.

Seven months into the conflict in Ethiopia's Tigray region, human rights atrocities and the full-blown humanitarian crisis are alarming, currently pushing 400,000 innocent people to the brink of famine and loss of life. This must be addressed immediately. We do well to remember the 1980s famine in Ethiopia, which led to an estimated one million deaths, many as a result of food assistance being blocked.

Open Letter: Excellency, Prime Minister Boris Johnson The President of G-7 Leaders' Summit
GSTS 6-09-21 - The Global Society of Tigray Scholars and Professionals (GSTS)i is gravely concerned with the credible reports emerging from various sources regarding an impending military offensive the Ethiopian and Eritrean forces plan to carry out in Tigray. These sources indicate that the new joint scorched-earth military campaign named 'final offensive' has been authorized by the governments of Eritrea and Ethiopia. As part of the government's plan to exterminate Tigrayans, this phase of military operation is to be carried out with the support of newly imported military hardware including drones...

Open Letter to the G7 Summit - UK Presidency, Cornwall, England, 11-13 June 2021
Mekete UK 6-08-21 -The War on Tigray and the Imperative and Urgency of Taking Concrete Actions to Avert a Full-blown Famine and the Genocide of an African People and Nationality in the 21st Century.
The G7 Summit - UK Presidency is taking place at a time of the global Covid-19 Pandemic and the pressing issues of climate change, trade, and security and geo-political challenges across the globe. The Mekete Tigray UK - a member of the Global Tigrayan Diaspora Association - wishes the G7 Summit success and harmony in its deliberations. Yet, it is crucially important that you also address one of the greatest humanitarian catastrophes of the 21st Century - the genocidal War on Tigray

U.S. Pushes U.N. Security Council to Publicly Address Ethiopia's Tigray
NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield on Thursday pushed for the U.N. Security Council to meet publicly on Ethiopia's conflict-torn Tigray region, where hundreds of thousands of people are in famine conditions. She also told a virtual event on Tigray, organized by the United States and the European Union, that it's "time for the Ethiopian government to respond responsibly to requests for humanitarian access."

Government of Tigray Statement June 08, 2021
Tigray Govt 6-08-21 -The Government of Tigray is, as always, ready to organize, coordinate and ensure timely delivery of humanitarian assistance to the people of Tigray. First and foremost, on behalf of the people of Tigray, we would like to take this opportunity to thank the international community (including the many human rights advocacy organizations and humanitarian donors) for standing with, and in support of, the people of Tigray during these trying times, as our people face unprecedented atrocities, maliciously inflicted socio-economic crisis and psychological turmoil at the hands of an unholy coalition of invading forces.

Urgent Call to the Impartiality and Transparency in the Work of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) in the War-affected People of Tigray
GSTS 06-09-21 - For the last six months, a significant portion of Tigray's population has been denied access to food, medicines, fuel, banking and other essential supplies and life-sustaining commodities. GSTS is cognizant of the challenges inherent to delivering humanitarian assistance in conflict zones. However, the aid distribution mechanism currently in place is not up to the standards of the WFP.

N report reveals presence of Somali fighters in Ethiopia's Tigray region
A UN report due to be submitted to the General Assembly this month says Somali soldiers are fighting alongside Eritrean troops in Ethiopia’s war-torn Tigray region. The 17-page-document prepared by UN special rapporteur Mohamed Babiker discusses the presence of Somali troops in Tigray – an issue that adds another dimension to the continuing conflict and growing humanitarian crisis.

Let Alfred Nobel rest: Revoke the Medal from Abiy
GSTS 06-08-21 - At the time when the Nobel Prize Committee (NPC) awarded the Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Abiy Ahmed, the Nobel peace award in 2019, many were elated hoping that the accolade would help the inexperienced Abiy with much needed morale boost to bring about democracy and peace. There were also many of us who were concerned that the award was out of step. One would think that the Norwegian NPC, with its century-old tradition and deep network globally, would have done sufficient research into Abiy's record since assuming office in 2018. There were sufficient clues between 2018 and 2019 that this was not a man of peace, but rather a man of conflict, who rules by deception, double-dealings, and disregard for the wellbeing of citizens.

Letesenbet Gidey breaks two-day-old women's 10,000m world record
06-09-21 - Letesenbet Gidey smashed the women's 10,000 meters world record on Tuesday on the same track where Dutch runner Sifan Hassan had set the previous record just two days previously. Gidey's time of 29 minutes 1.03 seconds at Ethiopia's Olympic trials held in Hengelo in the Netherlands means she now holds the world records in the 5,000m and 10,000m.

Senator Patrick Leahy Statement On The Situation In Tigray, Ethiopia
I vividly recall the shocking images back in 1984 of a million emaciated Ethiopian men, women and children, many of them from Tigray. Today, the people of Tigray are being subjected to human rights atrocities on an appalling scale, and they are being denied urgently needed humanitarian aid – aid that is being blocked by the Ethiopian and Eritrean militaries as well as other armed groups.

The Nobel committee should resign over the atrocities in Tigray
Nobel committee members have individual responsibility for awarding the 2019 peace prize to Abiy Ahmed, accused of waging the war in Tigray. The members should thus collectively resign their honourable positions at the Nobel committee in protest and defiance.

Open Letter to His Excellency António Guterres Secretary General of the United Nations
SJTE 06-07-21 - The UN must adhere to the basic principles of human rights and dignity.
Excellency, Security and Justice for Tigrayans in Ethiopia (SJTE), an advocacy organization, has earlier brought to your attention the plight of the Tigrayan people who have been subjected to a genocidal war unleashed by Ethiopia and its allies. Currently, Tigrayans and other Ethiopians all over the country are living in a state of fear.

Open Letter to Kristalina Georgieva Managing Director, International Monetary Fund
SJTE 06-07-21 - Dear Director Georgieva: We are writing to urge the International Monetary Fund to reevaluate its practices and halt its financial assistance to the government of Ethiopia which is committing atrocities of untold ruthlessness on its own people, the worst of which is in the Tigray region. We as diaspora Ethiopians of Tigrayan origin and as members of Security and Justice for Tigrayans in Ethiopia (SJTE), an advocacy organization, are extremely worried by IMF’s continued engagement with the [Abiy] government

The Passing of a Genocidal Empire
Mogos Abraham, PhD 06 June 2021 - Motivated by a shear racism or madness, genocide is a systematic extermination of a human group, which is endowed with its own identity of race, language, nationality, faith, culture, history, and territorial distinction. It was first recognized as a crime under international law in 1946 by the United Nations General Assembly (A/RES/96-I); and codified as an independent crime in the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (the Genocide Convention).

Negotiations? What Negotiations?
Alemseged Abbay 06-05-21 - There are three players in genocide: perpetrators, victims, and bystanders. Bystanders-domestic and international- determine whether a genocide occurs or not. Domestic bystanders can be passive onlookers as in the case of the Germans in the anti-Jewish Holocaust, vocal opponents as in the public uproar against the Nazi assault on disabled Germans, or active participants as in the case of the Hutu masses in the anti-Tutsi Rwandan genocide.

John 9:31 We Know That God Does Not Listen to Sinners: Senator Inhofe prays with Abiy Ahmed
Elias Dawit 06-02-21 - As Ethiopian and Eritrean troops ravage Tigray - murdering civilians, raping women and girls, looting homes, and destroying hospitals, schools, and churches - Senator James Inhofe solemnly knelt down in prayer with the perpetrator of these crimes against humanity, Abiy Ahmed. What was Senator Inhofe thinking as he bowed his head and spoke to our Creator? Was he thinking about his granddaughter, Zegeta, born in Ethiopia but raised...

UN: Famine is imminent in Ethiopia's embattled Tigray region
UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Famine is imminent in Ethiopia’s embattled Tigray region and in the country’s north, the U.N. humanitarian chief said, warning there’s a risk that hundreds of thousands of people or more will die. Mark Lowcock said the economy has been destroyed along with businesses, crops and farms and there are no banking or telecommunications services.

Eritrean Army's License for Genocide
Aynalem Sebhatu 06-03-21 - The license of Isaias Afewerki to mow down Tigray to the ground, I submit, is a consequence of a delusional leader of Ethiopia who is totally blinded by insatiable personal power and the mindless Amhara political and intellectual elites who are blinded by hate and vindictive mind set. Even though it is not comparable to the Amhara political groupies, to a certain extent Abiy’s support comes from the Oromo’s political elites too.

Stick to Principles: Law enforcement action required to spare Tigrayan civilians.
Haki Reteie 06/01/21 - The international community must adhere to just moral and legal principles and take more robust and swift action against the Eritrean, Ethiopian and Amhara leaders/forces, including coercive law enforcement measures, to spare over 5 million Tigray’s civilian population, irrespective of their bogus sovereignty claims and foolish threats.

Lost limbs, rising anger as town is caught up in Tigray war
HAWZEN, Tigray (AP) - Shops remained shuttered, some government workers hadn’t been paid and the town’s main hospital was utterly laid to waste. But the Tigrayan fighters still claimed victory, swaggering through the streets of Hawzen with their guns.Hawzen, a rural town in the ethnic Tigray region of northern Ethiopia, is a microcosm of the challenge facing Abiy Ahmed
