Bereaved families in Ethiopia, according to Aljazeera in its Ethiopia’s bereaved families seek justice, are demanding justice for 650 anti-government protesters who were killed last year.

የአምቦ ከተማ ተቃውሞ እንደቀጠለ ነው፡፡

ለተቃውሞው ምክንያት የሆነው በቅርቡ ተገቢ ያልሆነ ግብር ነጋዴው ላይ መጨመሩ ሲሆን። ስርአቱ የህዝቡን ጥያቄ በሰላማዊ መንገድ ከመመለስ ይልቅ ሃይልን መፍትሄ አድርጎ መንቀሳቀሱ በተፈጠረው ግጭት አንድ የፌደራል ፓትሮል መኪና ሲቃጠል ሌላ ተሰባብሯል፡፡ እንዲሁም አንድ አውቶብስ ላይ የመሰባበር አደጋ ደርሶበታል፡፡ ከፍተኛ ተኩስ እንዳለና ወደ ወለጋ የሚወስደው መንገድም እስካሁን እንዳልተከፈተ ለማወቅ ተችሏል፡፡

በከተማው ያሉ አገልግሎት የሚሰጡ ተቋማት ሙሉ በሙሉ ተዘግተዋል። ከፍተኛ የግብር ጭማሪን ተከትሎ በሌሎች አካባቢዎች የተቃውሞ እንቅስቃሴ ሊኖር እንደሚችል አስተያየት ሰጪዎች ይናገራሉ።

Open practice of torture in TPLF-run Ethiopia

31 May

Posted by The Ethiopia Observatory (TEO)
 
In its 142nd special report — dwelling on the state of emergency that was declared on October 8, 2016 — the Human Rights Council of Ethiopia has documented the abuses and impunity the so-called ‘trainee prisoners’ TPLF has labelled them had been inhumanely subjected to.

The report is a good window into TPLF’s practices of tortures throughout Ethiopia. The report also bears testimony on continuing TPLF regime’s extrajudicial killings, mass incarcerations and disappearances throughout Ethiopia.
