Protest Letter to the European Union

Ladies and Gentlemen at European Union,      

August 21, 2023

Brussels, Belgium and Strassburg, France

We, Ethiopians living and working in Europe are raising a cry of alarm to the European Parliament, the European Commission and to all representatives of western countries!

Since 2018, the year a new self acclaimed 7th king,  named Abiy AHMED came to power in Ethiopia, who has been carrying out a planned and implemented genocidal policy towards other ethnic groups except his own (the Oromo) living in this country, more than one million people have already died, many of these crimes being committed in atrocious and barbaric ways. Millions more are forcibly displaced from their homes. Thousands more languishing in prisons with no basic human rights. Thousands more are forced into exile by implementing Ethnic Federalism (Apartheid system) to divide and rule the people.    A human tragedy is taking place with the total knowledge of Western countries and international bodies, not to mention sometimes with their support and complicity. As the genocide in Rwanda did not teach you any lessons, why you remain outrageously passive without moving a finger ?

This silence and carelessness of all Western countries who claim to be defenders of the main charters of human rights seems incomprehensible to us, forcing us to question your sincerity.

In recent weeks, the bloodthirsty and genocidal government of Abiy Ahmed has been killing thousands of innocent people with drones and heavy weapons in the Amhara region
(in northern Ethiopia) without the international authorities condemning its actions as a
“crime against humanity”.

“What is even worse of these attacks with planes, combat helicopters and drones are carried out against civilian populations under the order of the commander-in-chief of the army,
General Yilma Merdasa, this same person has been recently appointed as chairman of Ethiopian Airlines. This proves the contempt for all rules and norms of international civil aviation. »

How can Abiy Ahmed, as the architect of  such untold genocide still not being charged at ICC ?
Ethiopia is now sinking into an unprecedented civil war and genocidal acts that the modern world has not known until now. To remain passive or inactive in the face of oppression makes you as guilty as the oppressor himself. 

Therefore, we are requesting the European Union to investigate and communicate with our delegation so we can elaborate on this matter further. Our e-mail address is shown below.

Best Regards,

Association of Ethiopians in Europe.

  1. If you care about Ethiopian rights, what about this?

    1). Call your group what it is: “Global Alliance for Amaras.” All your bulletins promote Amara Supremacy using pretexts like Amara Rights Violations, Amara Genocide, etc.

    2). Ethiopia’s last election was monitored by international observers [US/EU/AU]. Some lost: Eskinder [Balderas], Dr. Birhanu [eZema], Dr. Merera, etc. The US-backed “All-Inclusive Transitional Gov’t” crap is to grab power without being elected by Ethiopians.

    3). The Zemene/Eskinder/Mihret/Mesafint Fannos [ZEMMF] murdered elected Amara officials. Murder is Capital Crime! Murderers should stand trial! That triggered this war!

    4). Fannos are the Army’s Apolitical Backups! They are neither politicians nor Ethnic Putschists! Therefore, the ZEMMF are Proxy Domestic Terrorist Amara Putschists.

    5). The current Amara Zone war is just the latest in the Ethiopia-destabilizing Proxy Wars Series launched by Egypt & the White Supremacist West using The Enemy Within [i.e., Proxy Domestic Terrorist Amara Putschist Wolves in Ethiopian Sheep’s Clothing].

    i). When TPLF used children & civilians as Human Shields & Cannon Fodder, it was Crimes against Humanity. Why is it “Amara Patriotism” when ZEMMF do same thing?

    ii). When Jawar’s Qéros blocked roads, stormed towns, etc. you called it ‘Oromo Terrorism.’ What makes it ‘Amara Patriotism’ when ZEMMF do exactly the same thing?

  2. The Crocodile Tears & Lip Service of the Ethiopian Diaspora [ED]: ≈80% of ED are former rulers/flunkeys/awardees/etc. They are the same ones who made Ethiopia “The World’s Poster Child of Famine.” Who forgets these famine-appeal songs for Ethiopia?

    1). Tilahun Gessesse’s: “ዋይ! ዋይ! ዋይ!” ሲሉ – “የረሃብን ጉንፋን ሲስሉ ….” [Circa 1975].
    2). “We are the World!” – Circa 1985 – [Dubbed “World’s national anthem for Ethiopia”]

    Compare: Under Abiy, despite drought, locust, COVID, WSW*’s loan/aid/trade repeal, >10 million kids get ≥2 meals a day [plus school supplies, transport, etc.]. This gives ≥ 20 million parents peace of mind all over Ethiopia. What have these ED done for Ethiopia?

    Wouldn’t it be the joke of the millennium when these same crooks wrap themselves up in the Ethiopian flag as though they care about the same Ethiopians they starved and fled?

    Wouldn’t it also be a travesty of justice and a joke on the Ethiopian people to even listen to them – let alone reinstate them without elections using petty jokes like – “All-Inclusive Transitional Government”? Why does the WSW only care about breeding Proxy Dogs?

    WSW*: White Supremacist West
