Ethiopia: TPLF pleas to the people of Eritrea, warns state and non-state actors

While making emotional pleas to the people of Eritrea, TPLF warns state and non-state actors which it says are interfering in the internal affairs of Ethiopia.

Following an emergency organizational meeting on over the weekend which was called to determine to join the Prosperity Party, Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) has issued a statement.

The statement (it is shared on the official TPLF page on Facebook) framed the political situation in Ethiopia as one that is characterized by all-out effort to restore “oppression and slavery” by political forces which it described as “…others who ended EPRDF which was in the path of developmental democracy who established a new and satellite party…”

And then it vowed to continue struggling to make calls for collaboration to internal and external actors.

The statement passionately painted an image that the people of Tigray and Eritrea have intermarried, and do share culture and language.

It also said that TPLF supported the Eritrean struggle and “the two people [Tigray and Eritrea] fought together against Derg, and paid sacrifices to the point that combatants have shared grave.”

Regretting about the bloody border war with Eritrea and describing it as “unnecessary”, the statement said that TPLF has been doing all it can to rectify the mistake. There was a hopeful process “between the two countries, for a year and a half and then it was “stalled” for reasons it said is unknown, said TPLF.

“TPLF and the people of Tigray are ready to do whatever is expected from them so as to make the promising brotherhood and relation, and cooperation reliable and lasting. We call upon the people of Eritrea to do their part to make peace reliable,” the statement added.

Apparently, the statement excluded the government of Eritrea. It is more apparent in the warning that TPLF conveyed in the part of the statement in which it called upon states and “forces” in the region: 

“The negative role that some foreign forces are playing against our people and country, knowingly or unknowingly, need to understand that their actions will harm our country’s and the region’s peace and interest, and put their hands off our internal affairs. If they do not do that, they need to understand that they will take responsibility.”

Apart from the people of Eritrea, the statement also called upon members of TPLF and the people of Tigray in and outside of the country to stand behind TPLF in the struggle to “defend developmental democracy.”

  1. To Sidama: 01/06/2020

    -Wait for your turn .
    For all we know so far, at the elections in allover the country Sidama might be the only one voted for with all others across the whole country getting boycotted not getting a single vote at the next national elections , if this happens every body in federal government and in all regional gvernments have to relinquishh all government to Sidama .

    Then Sidama will have to administer the whole not only Sidama so for now we advise you to wait for your turn in the meantime spend the next six months time wisely by preparing for the scenario we just told you now just in case it happens, so that if it happens you can confidently be able to do the work of transitioning into such a huge responsibility .የሲዳማ-ዳያስፖራ-ማህበር-በወቅታዊ-ጉዳዮ/

  3. Ante dedeb Tewelde , neftegna amhara kizenam
    do you know “the forbidden history”

    I want to share with you what I was taught in the western world about your Minilik II. He was died from Syphilis. He was cocotte, harlot. We were prohibited to read and know what he has done to Oromo People and other minorities in the umbrella of religion and obedience to the kings and demagogue emperors.

    Zerayacob, and Fasiledes were among serial killers that ethiopia has seen thus far .

    I donot know what is burried in amhara region, many of the kings, including the afore-mentioned ones and Ibin Aby ,serial killer are all cold-blooded murderers!!

    With cooepration of the next Ethiopian leaders Dr Merara Gudina and Dr Jawar , the statue of Minilik, the killer , that caused a huge embrassement to this country by selling Djibouti, creating inequality among tribes and country fellowmen ,subdued ethiopians to foreigners and sold them to get weapons in return.
    Many were maimed, amputated and slaughted during his reign . We are here running out of time and subjected to word limit.However, the untold stories have touched the lives of multitudes and still survived by the scars they left on the victims of Minilik II, the then serial killer probably gave birth to Abiy, full time cold-blooded murderer of our time .

    Abiy built a palace for minilk and hailesillase that clearly shows that he, Abiy Ahmed, is indifferent to the scar and painful treatment of Oromos and other minorities by these Amhara elites!! Oromos and Tegraus will unite and crush the enternal enemies , Neftegna elites!!

  4. You idiot person how you dare to comment about minliek ll he is still the leader that all trembele before him after his death. Even Italians do not like him as you do now because he is the patriot and brave leader of the century.

  5. Eritrea did not sign the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement (AfCFTA) while fifty four other African countries did sign the AfCFTA . Tigrai is unwilling participant of AfCFTA since AfCFTA was signed by Abiy Ahmed against Tigray’s TPLF’s wishes . TPLF did not agree to AfCFTA but the Federal Government did on Tigray’ province’s behalf .

    Eritrea is not subjected to the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement (AfCFTA) so only Eritrea holds the key position of taking a bold step of criticizing the two nation’s war mongering anti peace stands. Eritrea must tell Egypt and Ethiopia to be realistic in their talks, only Eritrea holds the decisive position that can bring unbiased agreement both countries must adhere to whether they like it or not now before they complicate it anymore than they already did .
