Remetse Mesihiet

(First edition of Remetse from Tigray, May 2021)

 




The magnificent and talented singer Nuguse Abadi's latest song is something else! It is so powerful it has managed to resurrect our demoralized spirit. As you can tell we have been down and demoralized for a while because we did not stop the genocidal war unleashed on Tigray and Tigrayans. Although many of you told us not to blame ourselves, we think we should. To be honest, we all failed to protect our people! Nuguse's lyrics are so powerful and insightful it has answers to some of the questions we have been asking ourselves as to Why we failed our people?


 





 



It doesn't matter who Abiy sends as his hired gun or protege to Tigray. The end result will be the same. The first one left town in the face of a regrouped and formidable TDF. The last one will leave town in the coffin if he is not lucky like his predecessor. Enjoy this song. Zeru Hagos May 2021

On whose behalf? Is Geladius(PHD) merciful to the Amhara militia in the Zemede show.
Kalayu Abrha 05-11-21 - Any Tigrayan has every personal right to say whatever he likes as long as it does not compromise the core sensitivities of the people of Tigray. What has been happening in Tigray for the last six months is beyond the power of available words. Much more than the actions determined to end the existence of Tigray is what is accumulating in every brain cell of the Tegaru victims. The hate towards the tripartite killers,..


Ethiopia Must Set Right Environment for Election, US Says
WASHINGTON - The United States said a "free, fair, and credible election" can happen only with a conducive electoral environment. The statement comes amid a humanitarian crisis and conflict in Ethiopia's northern Tigray region. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken had pressed for Ethiopia's and Eritrea's commitments to withdraw Eritrean troops from Tigray "immediately, in full, and in a verifiable manner."







Aye America! Through its former Ambassador, it destroyed an elected government of Ethiopia and appointed Abiy Ahmed as a prime minister in Ethiopia. To make it worst, it is sitting down with a dictator that has never been elected and has no rule of law for his government. While America is cajoling such people, the elected government of Tigray is fighting tooth to nail to restore democracy and rule of law. How is it a country with over 300 years of democratic order is engaged in such an undemocratic undertaking? Is America a democracy? I can't fathom why America is not telling the dictator in no uncertain term to leave Tigray now! Tigrayans, do not put too much faith in the international community to come to the rescue. Freedom will only come out of the barrel of the gun as they say! Shet Meanta! Zeru Hagos May 2021


On History: a reflection
Aesop 05/08/2021 - History! There are endless definitions of history. I endorse E.H. Carr’s perspective. Carr presents history as an interpretation. The journalist tallies daily events; the historian gives them meaning. Moreover, this definition of history as interpretation acknowledges the role of human subjectivity over reality. Stories are not disembodied. They reflect our intimate feelings and values.




Ethiopian Orthodox Church Patriarch condemns Tigray 'genocide'
(CNN)The head of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church has condemned his own country's rulers in a video recorded by the director of a US-based charity, saying "they want to destroy the people of Tigray" with actions of "the highest brutality and cruelty."


Open letter to the President of the United States, Joe Biden
Eyob Ghebreziabhier Bein. 05-06-21 - Dear Mr. President, First of all, like many, I am happy that you are elected President of the United States. And my request if you can extend your humanity towards Bethlehem Tesfaye of six years, one of the victims of war. This little girl, in my opinion, little Queen Sheba, lost both her legs and her mother in the bomb blast..








Sudan says Ethiopian peacekeepers deported to refugee camp
CAIRO (AP) - Sudanese authorities on Sunday deported around three dozen Ethiopian peacekeepers, working on the U.N. mission in Darfur, to a refugee camp, the state-run news agency reported. The troops are among 120 Ethiopian forces from the Tigrayan ethnic group, who have sought asylum in Sudan after their stay ended earlier this year. The troops, including 14 women, refused to return after being recalled by their home country, Ethiopia, for fear of being detained by the federal government in Addis Ababa.


Ethiopian Orthodox Church patriarch blasts Tigray 'genocide'
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - The head of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church in his first public comments on the war in the country's Tigray region is sharply criticizing Ethiopia's actions, saying he believes it's genocide: "They want to destroy the people of Tigray." In a video shot last month on a mobile phone and carried out of Ethiopia, the elderly Patriarch Abune Mathias addresses the church's scores of millions of followers and the international community, saying his previous attempts to speak out were blocked.
All along, we suspected the Abiy regime was silencing the Patriarch from speaking the truth. We were right! We are glad the holy father is okay and has managed to tell the truth. We now know he cares.

A call for transparency as regards the work of United Nations particularly the Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights in the civil wars in Ethiopia
GSTS 05-08-21 - Excellencies, The Global Society of Tigray Scholars and Professionals (GSTS) acknowledges the letter (of 13th of April 2021) from the Chief of East and Southern Africa Section of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in response to our request to reverse the plans and preparations for a joint investigation of the atrocities in Tigray with the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission (EHRC). GSTS appreciates the OHCHR for allowing us to present our submissions through a virtual meeting. However, GSTS is disappointed to learn that the OHCHR has decided to continue with the investigation jointly with EHRC...


Ethiopia's crackdown on ethnic Tigrayans snares thousands
(Reuters) - The over six months-old Tigray armed conflict waged by the Ethiopian, Eritrean and Amhara merciless leaders and their hundreds of thousands of forces against the people of Tigray (and not against the TPLF) resulted in the death and rape of tens of thousands of unarmed civilians and the displacement and starvation of millions.


The African Union and the Tigray War: A reprehensible failure to uphold Union principles and protect civilians.
Afrem M. (from Mekelle). 05-06-21 - The over six months-old Tigray armed conflict waged by the Ethiopian, Eritrean and Amhara merciless leaders and their hundreds of thousands of forces against the people of Tigray (and not against the TPLF) resulted in the death and rape of tens of thousands of unarmed civilians and the displacement and starvation of millions.


Art as weapon of Warfare: Unique Tigrean Music soft-warfare.
Gebre Selema 05-06-21 - Every society has its own unique features of representation. Tigreans use art for war, for celebrating wedding, for religious exaltation, for farming, for mourning, almost for everything for expressing bad and good. Tigrean women sing while they do milling using milling stones in their homes by hand. They mill the whole night and sing.


Amhara, Tigray, and Egypt: the history of betrayal and the current baseless accusation
Kalayu Abrha 05-05-21 - France 24 English saw its respectable studio messed up by a Key Ethiopian politician who preferred to defend the genocide in Tigray, by behaving so childishly. The gallant and genius Meaza Gidey has brilliantly reduced Neamin Zeleke into a naughty boy. That was enough for him to learn from if he really has the desire to learn. She is much younger than he is, and he is expected to be more...


Refugee doctor chronicles Tigray's pain as he treats it
HAMDAYET, Sudan (AP) - He is a surgeon and a father. Every morning, he wakes up under a plastic tarp and is reminded he’s now a refugee, too. Tewodros Tefera is one of more than 60,000 people who have fled ethnic violence in Ethiopia's northern Tigray region, crossing the border into a remote corner of Sudan.


Ethiopia: Tepid international response to Tigray conflict fuels horrific violations over past six months
(Amnesty International) - African and other world leaders must urgently speak out and do more to stem the ferocious tide of human rights and international humanitarian law violations in the armed conflict that has now raged for six months in Ethiopia's Tigray region, Amnesty International said today. Amnesty International and other organizations have documented a string of serious human rights violations that include war crimes and likely crimes against humanity. There are also numerous credible reports of women and girls being subjected to sexual violence, including gang rape by Ethiopian and Eritrean soldiers.


Massacre in the church of Medhanie Alem Gu'etelo, on the parish's most important day of the year, the Festival of Jesus the Savior of Gu'etolo
(Forwarded) - The parish of Medhanie Alem Gu'etelo in Gulomekeda (Eastern Tigray) celebrates its main yearly festival, the Annual Festival of Jesus the Saviour, on 05 January of the year. On 05 January 2021, however, it was not a day of celebration, but rather a day of gruesome massacre.


G7 Foreign and Development Ministers' Meeting: Communique
We recall our statement of 2 April 2021 about the situation in Tigray, and remain deeply concerned about the continued violence and the worsening humanitarian and human rights crises. We condemn the killing of civilians, rape and sexual exploitation, and other forms of gender-based violence, destruction and looting of religious and cultural heritage sites, and the forced displacement of hundreds of thousands of Tigrayans and Eritrean refugees.
We thank the G7 countries for their continued support to the Tigray people. Nevertheless, we are saddened that the international community has yet to act decisively to stop the ongoing genocide in Tigray.

Ethiopia: Statement by the High Representative Josep Borrell on the cancellation of the Election Observation Mission
Despite all efforts by the European Union, it was not possible to reach an agreement with Ethiopian authorities on key parameters for the deployment of an EU Electoral Observation Mission in view of the parliamentary elections on 5 June 2021. As conditions are not fulfilled, the deployment of the mission has to be canceled.
Kudos to the EU! The International community should no longer wait for Abiy to play by the book. He can't. He is under Isaias Afeworki's spell. EU should know by now who Isaias is. He is a stubborn cruel dictator. Enough baby sitting.

Ethiopia's Tigray War Is Fueling Amhara Expansionism
By Kjetil Tronvoll - Abiy Ahmed depends on the support of ethnic Amhara leaders and militias whose goal is to reconquer what they consider lost territories-from Tigray to Sudan. The war in Tigray, the northernmost region of Ethiopia, is ostensibly about political control. The federal government's stated objective is to arrest the political and military leadership of the ousted regional government ... But among the ethnic Amhara political elite, it is seen as a war to regain territories


'No more sacred places': Heritage sites under siege in Tigray conflict
Hajj Siraj Mohammed has spent five decades managing the famed al-Nejashi Mosque in northern Ethiopia's Tigray region, welcoming worshippers even during periods of conflict and famine. But when war broke out last year in Tigray, he witnessed something he once thought impossible: The mosque itself, part of one of the oldest Muslim settlements in Africa, had become a target.
