On the International Human Rights Day, the US Secretary of State John Kerry called on the TPLF regime “to stop stifling free and open media”, unaware that the ethnic regime has so much violence up its sleeves against Ethiopians.
I am sure that he must have been informed that since December 10, the violence and ethnic cleansing of Oromo and Amhara Ethiopians has been intensified.
Only on Sunday, 25 more Ethiopians were killed in Oromia alone, bringing the total number to 65 in that region in about a month. This is without taking into account the over one hundred Amharas that have been massacred because of their open expression of their true identities and unwilling to live under Tigrean tutelage, the bonus to the TPLF being the surrender of their lands to the Front’s control.
We are listening carefully to what Steven Feldstein, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor has also said. He underlined his frustrations about “fighting repressive restrictions in Ethiopia and Sudan against opposition parties and human rights activists.”
Sadly, Ethiopians have never seen this translated into action, when genocide is persistently claiming lives of Ethiopians.
It therefore, of paramount importance the United States saw beyond Al-Shabab.
That is why we now ask, when would the United States would lift its eyes to closely look into the evil deeds of its foremost ally in Africa – the TPLF? It must see properly and act to bring an end to the systematic subjecting to genocide of Ethiopians by the ethnic minority regime of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).
