The silent genocide against the people of #Amhara in Ethiopia
=================
On June 9, 1991, OLF with the help of TPLF started slaughtering the people of #Amhara in Arsi at a place called #Arbagugu and #Bedeno

Since then thousands of #Amhara perished by joint forces of #TPLF & #OLF.
Bekaku Atnafu Taye made detailed research about the massacre.
Ethnic cleansing in Ethiopia
Journal of peace research by Author from Kotebe Metropolitan University in Addis Ababa researchgate.net/publication/32…
From 1991 to 2015 the following results of massacres happened across Oromia, Benishangul, and the SNNPR region of Guraferda against the people of #Amhara which were the crime amounting to ethnic cleansing and genocide. All was done by design.
It was not a curse nor was folklore. ImageImageImageImage

Ethnic Apartheid and Intentional Divides: the Fruits of Global Strife

[thread]

This past weekend, in what could only be described as an act of unspeakable terror, hundreds of Ahmaras were targeted and exterminated in the Wollega region of #Ethiopia.
The victims were young and old, men and women as extremists hellbent on inducing civil strife in my birth land loosened their animus upon civilians who were already bearing the brunt of decades of hopelessness and poverty. Sadly, this horrific
and senseless act of wanton violence was not an outlier but a continuation of a systematic attempt to destroy Ethiopia from within. The root cause of these massacres is a plan that was foisted upon Ethiopians through the auspices of a tribal junta by the name of #TPLF.

1/ The #Ethiopia/n government has informed the diplomatic community in the country on the “measures taken by the Government on human rights violations related to the conflict in the northern part of the country.”

2/ One may argue however that it seems evident that PM #AbiyAhmed, #PP government, and #ENDF military leadership in #Ethiopia are ultimately politically and juridically responsible for the #warcrimes, #crimesagainsthumanity, and possibly #genocide for their war in and on #Tigray.
3/ ICRC in #internationalhumanitarianlaw commentary: “Commanders & other superiors are criminally responsible for war crimes committed by their subordinates if they knew, or had reason to know, that the subordinates were about to commit or were committing such crimes... (cont.)

.@KenRoth,
.@AgnesCallamard,

I'm so sorry for you two guys for all the fallacies and fabricated article you have wrote.

#Ethiopia'n Gov't clearly indicate that any investigation by @hrw need to be made jointly with @EthioHRC, like it has been made before, ...

... which is acceptable for many reasons, which has an international recognition for its investigation experiences. However, you claimed as if it's obstructed by #GoE, which is a misleading conclusion to say that.

#GoE declared a unilateral truce since June 2021 for the reason of Humanitarian Aid delivery into #Tigray and Tigray farmers to use the time for farming as it's the onset of a rainy season in #Ethiopia.

There is no end to this #Activist Tedros Adhanom (@Tedros) shamelessly caring for #Tigray Health Facilities but never heard of either condemning nor registering the damages of Health Facilities in #Afar and #Amhara Regions by the #Terrorist #TPLF which he is a high rank member.

In its May 17th edition, #Eritrea's newspaper, Haddas Eritrea, had an editorial titled, "The #TPLF's new war adventurism: Why & for what objectives".
The editorial asserts that the main target of this latest TPLF war preparations is Eritrea & its people.
shabait.com/2022/05/17/%e1…
«Because they never learn from their previous disastrous experiences, are never bothered by massive deaths of the people of #Tigray about whom they pretend to care, & the only thing they care about is their hunger for power, #TPLF are now beating the war drums for the 3rd time.»
«In #Ethiopia, #TPLF's lust for power has as its aim to control again Welkait, Tegede & Humera, where they've committed genocide in their 27 years of misrule, & to open the corridor to the #Sudan, thereby plunging the country into chaos & disintegration.»

We #Amhara ppl love #Ethiopia more than any other but unfortunately fake Ethiopianists hide among us & serve injustice to all #Ethiopians. There is nothing special #Amharas received in the last 5 decades. In fact, we get the opposite which is hatred & #AmharaGenocide! Now we 🤔 ImageImage
Being an #Amhara nationalist has nothing to do with separatism. Our grievances are being ignored & this undeniable fact is the main reason why #Ethiopia is going through this endless cycle of civil war. Fake Ethiopianists & extreme nationalists are the cancers of #Ethiopia 💚💛❤️ ImageImage
#Amhara ppl have not had APPROPRIATE political representation for 5 decades, have been falsely identified as targets of oppression hence HATE & #AmharaGenocide, were ACTIVELY fighting for minority rights & equality during the student movement in the late ‘60s WITHOUT any credit! ImageImage

🧵The recent controversy of @TomGardner18, @TheEconomist reporter (now fired) who censored @MLInstitute publication on z suffering of #Tigrayans under TPLF rule, is not an isolated incident

#omission of facts has been another dimension of western media backing pro-TPLF narrative
The most notable/earliest evidence of this was z western media censorship of the @UNEthiopia crisis when African employees of the UN were fired by @DrTedros after they complained about @DrTedros's role in fixing @UNOCHA data & silencing reports of health infra destruction by TPLF
Another case of #omission was ignoring reports by civil society & health workers in Amhara/Afar regions (that uncovered mass destruction/atrocities committed by TPLF

In contrast, every claim by any doctor or "source" in Tigray is reported by western media

#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.

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,

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.

The blemishes of Jubbaland State narratives.

A threat.

The Jubaland issue has geopolitical and local-level conflicts during the 17 September agreement era.

On the face of it, by using current #Jubbaland admin as a fig leaf, #Kenya pursued "off-shore oil and gas deposits …harvesting and export of charcoal have become a particularly lucrative industry (which the] UNSC resolution 2036 (2012" banned trading it (see the link 👇).

If you think, Malinowski, a former Washington Director of @hrw, who never uttered a single word against #TPLF during his tenure, is sponsoring this bill out of an abundance of care for #Ethiopia, think again. #HR666!
IMO, these are the two pillars of #HR6600
1) Section 6 aims at strangling the Ethiopian economy be stopping loans & grants from the WB & IMF. This will affect millions of Ethiopians by affecting supply of seeds & fertilizers. Outcome: Inflation, food insecurity & instability.
2) Section 3, Point 3, aims at stopping the sale of weapons including drones to Ethiopia. Its effect on #TPLF is nonexistent. Here Malinowski & co are operating with the assumption that taking drones out of the equation will help #TPLF regain its military advantage over #ENDF.

Is the fpa.org a big deal? Apparently not. Just old.

@DrTedros's PR team are scraping the bottom of the barrel. Its Wikipedia [en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_P… has been flagged by moderators for looking like an advert.
The Foreign Policy Association was set up an eon ago, and was possibly never really relevant. Its website fpa.org has no traffic at all.

Its CEO and President Noel V Lateef apparently wrote a book about the Sahel in the 1981. amazon.fr/Crisis-Sahel-S…
To be fair he has written more books since & in May signed onto a letter from the US Chamber of Commerce to President Biden about leadership in global Covid Vaccinations. Open Letter to the President of the United States on the Need for U.S. Leadership in Global Vaccinations.

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.

Update on this thread.

There was no mention in the latest @WHO #COVID19 Briefing - and the English soundtrack can be found on the Twitter version of the briefing. Which is quite interesting.

Apparently hamsters are now getting Covid. And not just hamsters.
The full briefing is here (video tweet attached).

I have also checked @DrTedros's twitter account. He has not tweeted about Tigray since January 15th. The day after the Govt. of Ethiopia lodged its complaint about his conduct.

This search query finds his "Tigray" Tweets. Between 6th and 15th Jan he tweeted about Tigray 9 times. This was the week in which he raised the subject in two COVID19 Briefings.

1/ It's about time! For the past 15 months our media has been play catch up to Digital Woyane & losing badly! None of our state run media (@ebczena, @fanatelevision, @walta_info) are verified & yet @OdaaTarbiiWBO the spokesperson of OLA has a verified account!
2/ @walta_info, @ebczena and @fanatelevision tweeted ONLY 12k, 16k and 22k times respectively over the past DECADE!
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.

#TedrosTheTerrible

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.

- Supported #TPLF's war effort. He used his position to lobby and advocate for TPLF, intentionally misleading and misinforming the International Community,

- Failed to acknowledge the despicable war crimes of #TPLF in #Amhara and #Afar Regions,

3/6
- 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,
