The ruling Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF)/Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) regime continues committing grave human rights violations against the people of Ethiopia. Recently, the human rights situation is worsening in areas mostly inhabited by Ogaden and Oromo people of Ethiopia.
According to human rights organizations such as Human Rights Watch, in areas inhabited by Ogaden people in eastern Ethiopia the regime and its security forces:
raped and sexually assaulted numerous women;
displaced entire rural communities and destroyed dozens of rural villages;
forced residents to flee to the neighboring countries;
summarily executed several hundreds of civilians;
arbitrarily detained thousands of civilians;
intentionally restricted the delivery of humanitarian assistance on access to food and medical supplies in the Ogaden region of Ethiopia.
Similarly, in the southern and western parts of Ethiopia inhabited by Oromo communities, hundreds have been detained, tortured or otherwise mistreated.
To oppose the ongoing gross human rights violations and strengthen the unity of Ethiopia and Ethiopians, we respectfully request that Ethiopians and all people concerned with human rights, Democracy, and the unity of Ethiopians join us in the rally.
