Eritreans and Ethiopians on Saturday marched in the region of Cornwall in England ,where the G7 leaders were holding their meetings, to protest intervention in the internal affairs of Ethiopia and Eritrea.

The protest made headlines in the British media. 

Ethiopian and Eritrean communities in the UK expressed their support for peace and stability in the Horn of Africa. 

The United States has been issuing statement after statement condemning Ethiopia and Eritrea for the situation in the Tigray region of Ethiopia, when the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) was the cause of the war. It attacked the Ethiopian Defense Force in early November in unsuspecting circumstances and then fired rockets targeting Eritrean capital Asmara. 

“Defend Ethiopia” collaborated with both communities in the country to put together the event. 

Furthermore, the protestors demanded respect for the sovereignty of Ethiopia and Eritrea to deliberate on their internal affairs. 

Ethiopian News Agency (ENA) cited Zelalem Tessema, one of the coordinators of “Defend Ethiopia,” as saying “intervention in the internal affairs of Ethiopia is like destabilizing a country that is crucially important for peace in the Horn of Africa.” 

Furthermore, demonstrators said that the allegation  that Ethiopia is using famine as a weapon of war in the conflict in the Tigray region of Ethiopia is disgusting. 

There had been similar protests in Europe and the United States by Ethiopians and Eritreans to protest what is now increasingly being understood as a tacit support to revive the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), which the Ethiopian parliament designated as a terrorist group, under the guise of humanitarian action in the Tigray region of Ethiopia. 

Ethiopia and Eritrea have forged a strong alliance in the post-TPLF Ethiopia.

  1. There could not have been any other pertinent issues than protesting the seven mafias like gangsters, white supremacists, who are trying to rule the world , by virtues of deceptions, fascism, nazism and by total authoritarianism, for control of global materials, wealth, exploitation, manipulation and New way of egregious colonization by the shameless White supremacists, nazis and fascists.
    Stupendous job, my Ethiopian and Eritrean brothers, sisters.

    ኢትዮጵያ: ታበፅሕ: ዕደዊሃ: ሐበ: እግዚአብሔር::

  2. There are maliciius protesters inside, we know west is alarned when they saw ethiopia, eritrea and somalia cooperatung. They know the target is ethiopia and not even eritrea or somalia as they are in the hands of arabs and west. Somebody is protesting hands off somalia, eritrea instead of focusing on ethiopia only. Ethiopua must fully stand on her two feet before protesting for other natiins. You dont want to swallow more than you can chew. Such unecessary protest rather targets ethiopia more. Dont get me wring, i am not saying the 3 countries should not work together but, i think the malicious goups within the protest are getting ethiopia targetted, by protesting for eriteea and somalia. On the other hand, i wonder if some foreigners are working together with these maliciius protesters within the protest for somenother reason?

  3. The protesters must do their homework very well! Get good english speakers! Know some within the protest will divert the agenda. It is not just at G7 , expose and invoke sentiments feom western ethiopian-friendly populatiins by showing the crimes of Tplf by, evidences, photos, focuments, etc., using the right words, statements and slogans.

    Humble Commentary, 15 June 2021
    To repeat the above Title, >>> ““Eritreans, Ethiopians protest” together against UK for its interference in the affairs of two African countries. In my opinion, it is the most civilized and mature gesture out of two AFRICAN contenders of “yesterday” in a bitter thirty year war for independence.

    YES, Eritrea and Ethiopia are mature enough with dignity to teach the so called most civilized ancient country in our world — named Great Britain, the notorious colonizer of numberless countries around the Globe. That is all “gone with the wind” now.

    Yes, Tes, Yes TIME has changed. Eritrea and Ethiopia are together protesting the slickness of the mighty United Kingdom. It is hoped that Tigray too will live up to its legendary wisdom and cool manner of handlings matters into context for the benefit of AFRICAN PEOPLE — NOT TO BE against any State.

    Once again, I repeat my gesture to thank for providing us a platform to express our feelings and thinking about our savegely battered DEAR AFRICA by a ‘civilized’ Mighty POWER representing COLONIZERS of the WORLD. THE END
