TPLF supporters launch online campaign for “Tigray Genocide” recognition from the United States government
The Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) has invaded the Afar and Amhara regions of Ethiopia, days after the Federal government declared a unilateral humanitarian ceasefire and withdrew the Defense Force from Tigray region.
Devastating damages, both human and material, has happened in the areas that TPLF forces controlled, including in the UNESCO recognized heritage site, Lalibela.
For many, it was clear that the TPLF did not have the military capacity to maintain control of the areas that it occupied after July 2021. Apart from military resources, the group has become extremely unpopular among Ethiopians. That dashed TPLF’s ambition of restoring control over the central government.
Youth groups and militia in different towns in Afar and Amhara regions organized and trained themselves, with government support, to put up resistance to the TPLF groups.
Amhara region special forces and the Ethiopian Defense Force were ordered , by respective authorities, to reverse TPLF invasion.
The result was that the TPLF lost battles after battles in the past three or four weeks. According to a statement from the Ethiopian Defense Force, the terrorist group has lost well over 10,000 fighters in the North Gondar front alone, where it was attempting to open up a corridor to Sudan with the hope of getting a logistic and arms supply line.
The military plan was a total failure, as reported by the Defense Force.
On the Eastern Front, the TPLF has entirely lost the war. That was another route where the TPLF attempted to control the route to Djibouti with the hope of getting access to the outside world. That too was a miserable failure. According to latest reports from authorities, the Afar region special forces and the Ethiopian Defense Force have cleared the TPLF from all parts of Afar region of Ethiopia.
The TPLF has also lost a significant portion of its fighters in several battles in places between South Gondar and North Wollo, in the Amhara region of Ethiopia. It was forced to leave many of the towns it controlled in those regions. However, it wreaked havoc – both in terms of property damage and civilian casualties.
Social infrastructure, including health facilities and schools, were utterly destroyed by TPLF forces. Public and private properties were looted to be transported to the Tigray region of Ethiopia. Worse, TPLF massacred unarmed civilians in Afar and Amhara region.
Citizen reports on social media have indicated that the TPLF has been transporting dead bodies of its forces ( which is said to be composed of underage youth, women and elders) that it lost during battles in the Tigray region. Based on analysis from these group, the dead bodies were transported to the Tigray region to prepare for a Tigray genocide campaign.
As it turns out, the TPLF forces have already launched a petition to demand the US government to label “Label the Atrocities In Tigray a Genocide.” Their campaign page on change.org is available HERE.
The U.S. government has already been attempting to support the TPLF terrorist groups under the guise of “humanitarian” work in the Tigray region. There has been extensive effort by the US government on the diplomatic and political front. For too long after the start of the war, Ethiopia has been on the receiving end of mounting pressure from the U.S. government and the European Union. The government of Eritrea, also attacked by TPLF forces in November 2020, was also targeted by governments and international actors that seem to support the restoration of TPLF forces to power.
As reported by borkena before, Ethiopians do believe that the United States has been meddling in the Ethiopian affairs in a way that supported the terrorist TPLF. The U.S. Embassy in Addis Ababa requested borkena to remove the report and apologize for the report – something that outraged a considerable number of Ethiopians who are active on social media.
TPLF supporters campaign to acquire “Tigray genocide label” from the U.S. government came at a time when mass graves from massacres by TPLF forces are uncovered in the Amhara region.
The campaign seems to rely on materials from CNN narratives of the war that TPLF triggered in November 2020. Very often than not, it is presented as the “Ethiopian crisis.” There are even media outlets that attempt to make it appear as a “War on Tigray.”
Ethiopians, from home and abroad, who oppose the TPLF forces have been very organized, in the past few months. Chances are, TPLF supporters’ campaign will trigger a response – maybe not necessarily a campaign that aims to lure the U.S. government but something that exposes recent atrocities by TPLF forces in Afar and Amhara regions.

Look at the ugly devil, two legged Sudanese, human like animal and a human trash, serving the Nazi, white supremacist propaganda machine CNN. This dirt bag, the servant of the devil must not be allowed to enter and or step on the land of Ethiopia, period.
There was video she was forcing herself into Tigray regiin without the approval of Ethiopians, she thought she had Cnn behind her so no oroblem! Ethiopians are giving in such people and organizatiins forcibly getting into the countries not for the truth or himanitaian reason but to wage war against the people. These fake organizations must be exposed, they are colonialist wing and Nazi deceiving the world, l dont know when they will be exposed, let us speak the truth the government must stop the foreign groups working against ethiopia inside ethiopia foun in the government, around key resource interest locations, conflict locatiins. They are given for imminity, for what, to continue to kill via Tplf and Olf? The government must tell the truth to the people that is steangling ethiopia under false “good relationship with Ethiopia” l mean not the real friendly foreigners that help ethiopia in win-win situation but those that are trying to destroy ethiopua pausing “friendly” found in the Middle East.
People should see study on media that was made the atrocities of congo and the involvement of Uganda, Rwanda. What Tplf is doing is a copy cat of that, Tplf commits the genocide on Tigrayans, Amaras and Afar, when Ethiopians ( government and regional states) defend themselves, Tplf cries genocide internationally in order to send Ethiopian government, Afar and Amara to ICC. This was planned by the same foreign groups Rice, Powers, Da waal, etc who did the same thing in congo and rwanda genocide with their Kagame and co. That is why tplf is weraring ethippian military clothes and committing genocide in Tigray. Till this day no ethiopian or the government are coming out against this deception and false information internationally. You can only win, when you prove yourself, go ahead, sit and relax lije you did 27 some years

Soon, they are on the way saying Ethiopians are actually us and Nile is ours. Egypt civilization, they are claiming it belongs to Nazi from Europe.
It is not because the West does not know the evil nature of Terrorist TPLF. They know very well TPLF is a Terrorist and massacre and genocide machine of innocent young and old Amharas and Afars including herds. TPLF is a looting Hyena scavenger and burning properties and houses belonging to those two ethnic groups because they can’t take it to Tigray.
But the West want to hear what it wants. TPLF is the only one that is known to serve their interest. Therefore do not wait for honesty and justice coming from the West because it is not their interest. Do what you have to do to keep your interest, country and people safe.
Now TPLF is loosing from every front and created enemies from all corners, it has started the usual Cry FAMINE and VICTIM of war for the West rescue them. Cry FAMINE means TPLF is loosing and getting decimate and urgently need more weapon and passage to scape Woyane TPLF criminal leaders from getting caught.
I agree Lulu, we all need to aggressively campaign to expose the terrorist TPLF’s lies and numerous massacres, vandalism, and acts of barbarism committed by its force against people of Amhara and Afar whenever we get a chance. We also need to expose the fake news media such as CNN, BBC, etc. They are no more than paid TPLF propaganda outlets. We know, at the end, Ethiopia will prevail despite all the pressures. Hope the people of Tigray will wake up one of these days and see the true nature of TPLF and its leaders (collection of the selfish, self-centered, greedy bastards) and join their fellow Ethiopian efforts to remove this group from the Earth. We are very close. It just needs few pushes. GOD BLESS ETHIOPIA AND ITS PEOPLE!!
More is clear now why the military left the Mekele, it was to bring the war on Amara and Afar land, why? You want to be clear off Tplf mot expand it! That is why the government must be honest to people that they did not have steategy when Tplf used children and elders in front of them to implicate the mikitary as genociders, this is why they did not have plan b, c, d,etc
You watch! They will get their wishes. I will not be surprised if such designation is announced between now and the next New Year 2022. Debre and his predecessors were not just loafing around since 1991 while their opponents were deafening their ‘feel good’ gerersaas and battle cries. Debre and his predecessors were making buddies in every Western capital while staying bosom buddies with their commie ‘classmates’ in Beijing. Who knows how many the best of the best khamr flowed? Who knows how many trips were made to high-end boutiques and jewelry stores were made between the Thanksgiving Day and Xmas eve. Who knows how many birthdays were graced with jaw dropping goodies bonding friendships getting stronger and stronger over the years. They managed to place their best of the best sagacious in result producing locations overseas. They had the money and plenty of it. They had unchallenged power and used that to show the West they are ‘it’! They have friends among who some may have an impossible time to shake off that friendship. What were those pillars of the country, Oromos and Amharas were doing? Don’t start with me on that one!!! Please don’t!!! One was busy calling the other one a ‘neftegna’ and in return he will get being called ‘Oromo extremists’. These two giant fools did not even realize that Debre and his predecessors were eating their lunch undisturbed for three decades. By the time these two fools woke up from their debilitating slumber their thunder was brazenly stolen as exhibited in this designation campaign. Who cares how many Amharas, Afars and Oromos were murdered? They have committed massacres anyway! Who cares? Who cares?
