    On the Ethiopian border, refugees fleeing fighting, famine make for Sudan
    (PBS) 07-24-21 - Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia launched a government offensive last November against rebels in the northern region of Tigray. At the time, he promised the war would be over in a matter of weeks. But the ongoing conflict has led to thousands of deaths, displaced almost 2 million people, and led to charges of ethnic cleansing and widespread sexual violence, mostly by government forces.

    Ethiopian bishops say it is not too late to stop the war in Tigray

    Ethiopia Tigray crisis: New front opens as aid fears grow
    A bloody eight-month battle for control of the north Ethiopian state of Tigray has spilled over into the neighbouring region of Afar in the past week. "Five years ago the Ethiopian army was the most powerful in the region. The fact it couldn't secure Tigray shows how quickly the situation has deteriorated."

    Tigray: As famine looms, first WFP humanitarian flight arrives
    It was the first UN Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) aircraft to arrive in the region since commercial flights were halted on 24 June, carrying more than 30 staffers from multiple aid organizations. "WFP and our fellow emergency responders on the ground in Mekelle are all enormously relieved to see this UNHAS flight arrive today, bringing in colleagues who are all essential in our collective efforts to scale up the humanitarian response..."

    Call to Stop the Siege of Tigray and the Use of Starvation as a Weapon of War

    The price of indifference and shortsightedness
    EsaTed 21/07/2021 - The rush to gloss over what happened in Tigray since November 4, 2021, and push Tigray to accept a meaningless ceasefire by some in the media in Ethiopia and in the diaspora has been almost as painful to see as the indifference by many fellow citizens to the atrocities committed against Tigray.

    A Reflection on Tigray's Maneuver Action Plan that Routed Abiy' Allied Forces
    Asayehgn Desta, Sarlo Distinguished Professor 07-21-21 - The constitution of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, promulgated in 1995, was supposed to resolve ethnic conflict and enhance self- and shared rule. But, contrary to expectations, Ethiopia became heavily embroiled in inter-ethnic skirmishes starting in 2018. Demand for self-rule and ethnic fighting has been brewing in a number of Ethiopia’s regional states. More than 3 million none-native ethnic groups that lived and intermarried with ...

    Ethiopia: Grim Realities and Vain Hopes
    Aynalem Sebhatu 07-20-21 - Before the ascent of Abiy Ahmed in 2018, the Ethiopian economy had been performing at one of the highest growth rates of the world. The hopes of Ethiopians fighting the grinding poverty off their backs that once were associated with the country’s strong economy have long since plunged on the grim realities of the wars in Tigray, Oromia and Benishangul-Gumuz and its agonizing consequences.

    An Open Letter to the: United Nations, African Union, European Union, United Sates Secretary of State, United Nations Security Counci
    Security and Justice for Tigrayans (SJT) once again would like to draw your attention to the ongoing Tigray genocide in Ethiopia. It has been over eight months since Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia and Isaias Afwerki of Eritrea subjected Tigray and Tigrayans to total destruction. The brutality of the war, the crimes committed against all ages, and the material loss are by now clear to the whole world.

    Is a coup in Ethiopia imminent?
    Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed was once the toast of the international community. He was young, spoke the language of democracy, and was willing to reverse longtime policy to end the border conflict with Eritrea. In 2019, he took home the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts. Today, he is a Nobel embarrassment.

    Tigrayan group in UK raises serious concerns about CDC investment in Ethiopia telecoms
    A group of Tigrayan academics has written to the UK Government's CDC Group PLC (CDC) raising concerns that inadequate steps have been taken to ensure £65 million telecoms investment is not used to fund serious human rights abuses in Ethiopia's armed conflict in the Tigray region.

    Tigray: Time for the UN to Report on Attacks on Humanitarian Facilities and Personnel
    Since the outbreak of war in Tigray in November 2020, the Government of Ethiopia and its coalition partners have persistently obstructed humanitarian aid, pillaged and destroyed medical infrastructure and services, and incited violence against humanitarian workers. These actions have been well documented and are clear violations of international humanitarian law (IHL). Yet, the United Nations Security Council has failed to invoke resolution 2286

    Ethiopia's Tigray war spills into neighbouring regions
    The "very limited action" targeted special forces and militia fighters from Oromia region, Ethiopia's largest, who were massing along the Tigray-Afar border. "We took those actions to ensure those forces are sent back to Oromia, and we have managed to do that," Getachew said, adding that there were some casualties but he could not provide figures..

    The Tigray-Amhara Boundary Should be Resolved by Constitutional Means
    The ethno-federalism arrangement of Ethiopia established in 1991 created new regions in Ethiopia to replace the previous administrative provinces. One of them is the Amhara Regional State, which is composed of parts of former geographical administrative regions of Begemeder (Gonder), Wollo, North Showa, and Gojjam. Its creation has taken the dominant ethnic Amharas into consideration.

    From anxiety and sorrow to rest and relief!
    Abiy Ichabod 07-18-21 - What could be more pleasing to the heart than the relief of the oppressed? This truth applies to all honest-hearted ones. God is always with the poor, the oppressed, the downtrodden, and the destitute. The atrocities committed against the people of Tigray during the past eight difficult months are horrific and mind-blowing.

    Mr. Abiy's deceptive "Humanitarian Ceasefire" is officially over, now, before even being real.
    Dr. Goitom Aregawi 07-18-21 - It is to be remembered that Ethiopia's government, after leaving Tigray by force of a bullet, said that it was "voluntarily withdrawing its army from Tigray" and was declaring a "Humanitarian ceasefire for the sake of the farmers in Tigray". These words might have deceived few unsuspecting individuals and parties inside the country and abroad, but people who closely followed Abiy's behavior, and the actions that followed won't.

    They Spoke Tigrinya.
    Paulos Irgau. 07-17-21 - Right after the iconic artist Hachalu Hundessa was killed, the newly appointed Mayor of Fin-Finne said to reporters that the alleged assailants spoke Tigrinya. What she had in mind and meant to say was in fact, they spoke the language of the enemy. The language of the sworn enemy. The language of the blood enemy. And it was a foregone conclusion that the owners of the language had to be eliminated and the project to carry out the assault was set for November 4, 2020.

    'Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.' Samuel Johnson (1775)
    Kalayu Abrha 07-17-21 - Samuel Johnson is a great British scholar of the 18th Century, who is a familiar figure in Ethiopia for his book "Raselas: The Prince of Abyssinia". The book was translated into Amharic by Sirak Hiruy. Although it was only at a certain political party level, unlike the government level in Ethiopia, what we are experiencing in Ethiopia most currently was also observed by Samuel Johnson in Britain two hundred fifty years ago.

    Revisiting the Demands of Tigray for a Negotiated Ceasefire?
    Haki Fanus 16.07.21 - The Tigray Government's first and foremost choice should always be to silence the guns and make peace with its arch enemies, so long as the minimum requirements are met by the offenders-such as ending the siege, arrests, murder, occupation and starving the people. A peaceful resolution of this dangerous human and security crisis would benefit all sides and humanity as it would stop further bloodshed, rescue millions of citizens from famine, restore law and order in the country

    Ethiopia: End arbitrary detentions of Tigrayans, activists and journalists in Addis Ababa and reveal whereabouts of unaccounted detainees
    (Amnesty International) - Police in Addis Ababa have arbitrarily arrested and detained dozens of Tigrayans without due process, following the recapture of the Tigray region's capital, Mekelle, by forces from the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) that also calls itself Tigray Defence Forces (TDF) on 28 June, Amnesty International said today.

    OLBIA, Italy July 17 (Reuters) - Forces in Ethiopia's northern Tigray region have released around 1,000 government soldiers captured during recent fighting, the head of its ruling party said, as both sides prepared for a showdown over contested land in the west of the region.

    Urgent Call to the Ethiopian Peoples, Elders and Religious Leaders, Political Parties, Civil Societies and Intellectuals
    GSTS 07-16-21 - Eight months into the genocidal war on Tigray, the combined Ethiopian National Defense forces (ENDF), Eritrean Defense Forces (EDF), and the Amhara Region special forces and militia have committed heinous mass atrocities, and egregious crimes in different parts of Tigray in violation of international law. The crimes include ethnic cleansing, systematic sexual...

    Eritrea: The Perversion of Exports
    Aynalem Sebhatu 07-14-21 - I would like to begin by stating that Eritreans were inspired by the brisk economic development of countries like Singapore and Hong-Kong when they started drafting economic policy for their newly independent country. They sought various ways to revive the war-torn economy and they mainly based their strategy on export-led development, none of which had succeeded.

    Talking past each other
    Kalayu Abrha 07-14-21 - The English language idiomatic expression "talk past each other" means two persons are talking about the same subject but are saying different things. This happens when one of the two knows what the other is saying is the truth but has decided not to admit it. The resistance to accept the truth could arise from the sense of defeat that could logically follow admission of the truth.

    'Purely ethnic profiling': New wave of Tigrayans detained
    ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) -Witnesses say thousands of Tigrayans are being detained and their businesses closed in cities across Ethiopia in a new wave of ethnic targeting by authorities over the eight-month conflict in the Tigray region.
