Ethiopians and friends of Ethiopia from eight European countries have made rallies in Brussels protesting undue external pressures on Ethiopia
Ethiopians, people of Ethiopian origins, and friends of Ethiopia living in #Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, France, #Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and Spain have held a rally today (November 15)in Brussels protesting undue external pressures against Ethiopia.
In the rally held in front of the headquarters of the European Commission in Brussels, demonstrators urged the European Union and the United States to refrain from pressuring the government of Ethiopia.
The demonstrators displayed posters that denounced the TPLF, supported the leadership of the Government of Ethiopia, and called for the international community and the media to respect the sovereignty of Ethiopia.
Representatives of the Ethiopian Diaspora community and friends of Ethiopia have also delivered speeches that denounce the destructive acts of the TPLF and its terrorist affiliates, including the unjustified punitive measures taken against Ethiopia.
The demonstrators finally have handed over a letter detailing their reasons for protest to a representative of the European Commission’s Foreign Relations Service.
The Diaspora Advocacy Team in Belgium that organized the rally has announced plans to replicate the experience in many countries in Europe.
