People in Kobo and Mersa responded to the massacre by taking to the street to oppose what government forces, mainly from Tigray as residents say, did in Woldia. Yet, government forces killed protesters in Kobo and Mersa as well.

After all that,government is still undertaking massive crackdown in those cities,they are located in north central Ethiopia, and hundreds of residents are detained.
