Dozens of soldiers encircled a severely injured young man (maybe a teenager ) , they keep on beating him ,taunting him telling him to smile while destroying his face , some are comfortably recording on their phone
lots of slur
“don’t kill him yet ,we want them to suffer first “
“no they don’t die that easy , almost all of the once we left for dead got up “.
There was a local girl (about 10 or 12 yr. old ) in the crowd ,the soldiers were encouraging her to stone the boy and she does .

#BloodyWinter: winter is coming to Ethiopia and it is going to be bloody

1/ In 2-3 months the rainy season will be upon Ethiopia. I am hoping against hope that I am wrong, but I am afraid it is going to be the bloodiest winter in our history!
2/ It appears, both #TPLF & its backers have given up their hope of bringing #TPLF back to power & have settled for an independent #Tigray to serve as their #HOA proxy to disrupt the region. The catch: An independent #Tigray can not be realized without #Welkait.
3/ #TPLF is using this respite to appease the populace severely affected by food shortage and the terrible cost of the loss from the previous campaign in terms of human life and replenish its dwindling supply to feed its army.

Terror in #Tigray ‼️

According to reliable sources, #TPLF has made #Tigray a "Living Hell' and the young generation is confused, most are fleeing away. There are kidnapping everywhere, from streets and homes for the war.

Parents are required to pay some 50K if they don't let their children to go to war and will not get food aid.

Currently, #TPLF is preparing for a full scale war assuming the following scenarios:

👉 Some groups from #Afar will side with them,

👉 The desperate young will join in mass for their families to get food aid,
👉 Some groups from #Amhara will join them assuming their grievances,
👉 #OLA attack in #Oromia Region will weaken the central Gov't,
👉 #US's sanction bills crippled the Gov't,

Since November 2020, officials & Amhara security forces have engaged in a relentless campaign of ethnic cleansing to force Tigrayans from their homes🧵

Threats

Unlawful killings

Sexual violence

Mass detention

Denial of humanitarian aid + more

hrw.org/news/2022/04/0…
In several towns across Western #Tigray, signs were displayed ordering Tigrayans to leave, & local administrators openly discussed plans to remove Tigrayans.

A Fano is a member of a non-political, non-religious community self-defense movement constituted out of ordinary citizens from all walks of life, religion, sex, age etc. - at times of organized attack. The name also applies to a group of Fanos. 1/5
Their most recent action was against #TPLF invasion of Amhara lands, looting, rape, and destruction between Summer and Fall of 2021.

In the past, they resisted Italian invasions, and past attacks by the then #TPLF-controlled Ethiopian Government for the 27 years until 2018. 2/5
Their resistance was re-invigorated after the botched abduction of the leader of the Wolkait-Tegede-Telemt Amhara Identity Advocacy Committee, Col. Demeke Zewdu (now vice governor of Wolkaite) in Gonder, which led to #TPLF downfall, coupled to the Oromo youth movement. 3/5

#HR6600: Promising Blood, Tears and More Blood for Ethiopia

1/ Engineered by #DrEvil, powered by @PowerUSAID, introduced by @RepMalinowski and financed by the pro_TPLF diaspora, #HR6600 promises to inaugurate a decade of bloodshed, starvation and instability in the HoA.
2/ @StateDept supported TPLF up until the last moment with the hope TPLF will come back to power. With their dreams dashed, it seems they came to the conclusion that their best bet is to work with the GOE. The ambassador was replaced & @PowerUSAID's seems to have been sidelined.
3/ Now, @DrTedros & @PowerUSAID are spearheading a change in strategy. The new strategy is all about twisting the arm of @StateDept through bills passed by the Senate or Congress.

When I was a campus student once I was sick and went to campus health center...and the nurse asked me symptoms in #Amharic & I struggled to explain to him. He asked me if am experiencing 'ሳል' and I couldn't confirm for him since I've never heard of the word before that day.
Lucky for me he understood my problem and checked my name and found out it's #AfaanOromoo name & he asked me again in #AfaanOromoo and I felt so much relief on my chest.
The most surprising thing about this is the nurse was as an #AfaanOromoo speaker forced by the rules of the campus to communicate with patients in #AfaanOromoo, at the center of #Oromia town where majority of students are #AfaanOromoo speakers.

To War, or Not to Be: Why #TPLF will ALWAYS choose war

1/TPLF backed by formidable western allies failed to deliver Addis and apparently lost their unqualified support. With thousands sacrificed with nothing show in return, TPLF is stuck between a rock & a hard place.
2/ TPLF knows it can only survive if there is active conflict. Without war keeping the populace in a state of near constant fear and paranoia will be nigh impossible. This makes the prospect of ordinary Tigrayans showing their discontent, a very real possibility.
3/ With that in mind TPLF will do all it can to keep the war going. After another round of conscription TPLF has been getting ready to launch an all out attack against #Afar and #Amhara.

3/ All the news and documentaries about atrocities committed by the #TPLF in #Afar and #Amhara have not been made available in English. Video evidence of the numerous misdeeds of TPLF over the past 3 decades are not publicly available.

1/ 5.5 million people died of COVID-19 under @DrTrdros's watch. The fall from grace of the @WHO under #TedrosTheTerrible might have caught many people by surprise but not many #Ethiopians.

2/ Ethiopian health professionals gasped in disbelief when @DrTedros was elected to lead @WHO in May 2017. A man who grossly mismanaged three Cholera epidemics getting elected to manage the World Health Organization; what could possibly go wrong?🤔
3/ In October 2005, @DrTedros was appointed as the first non-MD Minister of Health in #Ethiopia. His only qualification to hold the post was him being a member of the Central Committee of the #TPLF.

Dear #Amhara & #Afar.
Sephat Nega is a monster who master minded all the crisis in our region.
I know this is a very difficult times for you & I completely sympathise.
But be aware of the Digitalweyane. Their private chat reveals a nasty plan & I will share it.
#MoMore
1)
From our 20yrs experience, TPLFites only strength is sowing discord & perpetuating conflict.
They split their group into 5 sub-groups & each assigned their own tasks.
They pose as:
1. #Oromo.
2. #Amhara.
3. #Eritreans.
4. Pro-Abiy
5. Anti-Abiy.
2)
Task of those posing as Oromos are to attack Amhara relentlessly & exploit any historical misrepresentation to the maximum.
Those pose as Amhata will insult Oromos.
Those who pose as Eritreans, their task is to attack both Amhara & Oromo, & also lie about Eritrea's motives.

This is the way how our people have been tricked and played in politics over and over and over again. As you think such kind of political
insanity on the perception and perspective of #Amhara, you will be disgusted and sick to your essence how our people always allotted as a sacrifice lamp for the power sustenance and continuity of inept politicians who are morality unfit and purposefully disgruntled.
The past five months of the #Woyane invasion was not a military drill nor was it a competition to flex muscle. It was a real-time disaster that has caused unquantified human suffering and unmonetized property damage. It is disingenuous at the same time a brazen attempt to

- He was a member of the #TPLF Politburo Standing Committee. A political party known for egregious violation of Human Rights. Please refer to State Department, #CPJ, #Amnesty International, #UN & #HumanRightsWatch Reports on #Ethiopia from 1991-2018,

#GaslightingEthiopia 101:
How to support #TPLFinc by undermining GOE using #TPLFcrimes

1/ In their report released on Dec 9, @hrw detailed atrocities perpetrated by #TPLF in #Chennai and #Kobo, between Aug 31 and Sept 9.
The findings of the report are chilling and makes you shudder thinking of what must have happened in areas held by #TPLF for several months.
2/ Yet the report raises more questions than it answers.
What about the 90 days since Sept 9? Why conduct the reports remotely, despite at least some areas being free for 3 months? Why release the report now as #TPLF occupation is ending & more atrocities are coming to light?

.@SkyNews,
I disagree on your 'Story' you made for the following reasons;

The girls & caretaker are from #Dessie, #Amhara Region, not from #Tigray, as their accent purely speaks, however, you concluded that they faced ethnic discrimination which totally wrong.
1/4
2/4
You mentioned that the girls lost their parents and get injured last year, however, at that time there was no conflict in #Dessie rather in #Tigray.

You also mentioned that they are from #Tigray'an ethnicity and are outsiders in #Addis_Ababa which is wrong again; ...
3/4
... as there are thousands ethnic #Tigray'an living in the capital, #Addis_Ababa, for hundred years and there is no as such ethnic discrimination whatsoever as the population living are a diverse one and from every ethnicity in #Ethiopia.

Should we wait for a @UNHRC-@EthioHRC joint investigation of HR abuses in the #Amhara and #Afar regions by #TPLF?

I do not think so!

First of all, the process is lengthy, until #UN agrees, budgets are approved & released, personnel are identified and sent over. #Ethiopia
2/4:
While we don't discount their investigation, the following are the risks:
- human & material evidences could be lost,
- priorities on the part of the organizations or the victims may change,
- there's is also a possibility of politics overriding the priorities/need.#Ethiopia
3/4:
Actions (not exhaustive, by any measure):
- the respective regional admins/or civil societies organize fact gathering teams (led by competent lawyers),
- document abuses, wanton destructions, robbery, etc,
- fundraising efforts for the investigating teams, etc #Ethiopia

#NoMore: read our lips

1/Admiral Stavridisj, the man who led the NATO Alliance from 2009 to 2013 as Supreme Allied Commander with responsibility for Afghanistan, Libya, the Balkans, Syria is calling for apparent US intervention in #Ethiopia.
2/ It appears the Admiral took the wrong lessons from this list of abject failures of US interventionalism. The Syrian crisis led to the resurgence of ISIS, Libya became a slave market and Afghanistan is in the hands of the Taliban. Impressive!
3/ The article started well before devolving into the usual mindless comparision with Yugoslavia. For the last time please stop comparing Ethiopia, a nation that was around for millennia with a country cobbled together from 3 preexisting nations in 1918 & lasted a mere 74 years!

After thirty years of stretch, an opportunity to repair the fate and politics of the people of #Amhara is on our doorstep. One way or the other, this is a make it or break it a shot. Even if our representatives in politics and our elites in a scholarly position don't seem to
understand the urgency of unearthing a way out of a generational backlog of political problems for our people, it is now more than ever to stand up and rectify our fate with them or without them. This must be the last time for the people of #Amhara to carry the burden of the
political insanity of our country by themselves alone. It must have been a collective responsibility for all in the first place even if things always proved the contrary. In this short period of political crisis, we have witnessed slander after slander against our people by so

The waiting negotiation paradoxes
=========================
When the unilateral ceasefire was declared for vague reasons, now it seems almost was a lie, #TPLFites never hurried to take the opportunity. They were rather hurried for invasion. I don't know what was the contingency
plan awaited to counter if the unilateral ceasefire fails to live up to the promises.

Now we are a witness, there was none. Yes, we can't afford to dwell on that issue anymore as the crisis is already developed into a question of life and death for the people of #Amhara.
However, on the other hand, #TPLFites regularly confessed and claimed apart from their desire to score points with the people of #Amhara and retaliate that their invasion was based on:–
1) creating a buffer zone
2) to grasp areas for future negotiations as a bargaining chip
