  1. Thus far, TPLF has been destined to cause the falling and rising of people of Tigray, our beloved people(Luke 2:34). During the past TPLF era , we have risen to the top fastest growing countries, and unfortunately we have fallen to the lowest level of poverty and destruction and subjected to the highest level of genocide and mass killings ever recorded in our history even if the actors of the destruction, and the Tigray genocide are Amhara fanos, amhara militia , eritrean regime(higdef) and involved foreign mercenaries like Somalia, UAE, Iran and Turkey. Contemptible silence of western powers and international organizations , along with US, has played a huge role in continuation of the genocide perpetrated against our beloved people .

    Eritrean regime, Amhara fanos, and prosperity party dominated by amhara elites are found guilty of triple sin of rape , genocide, and land theft. Anonymous
    If we do a little bit of insight into history, how many times have there been people doing hate discourse, such as Amhara elites and their cult like party, prosperity party, blaming everything on a certain group of people. That really is the genesis of genocide, where it kind of sparks. Gael Garcia Bernal

    Turkey , stop killing Tegaru and stop repeating your genocidal history: over 350,000 Greeks were killed by Ottoman Turkey between 1913 & 1922, Turkey “entirely rejects” US President Joe Biden’s recognition of the 1915 Armenian events as “genocide,”and now again involved in Tigray genocide by supplying genocidal machines and handing its experts specilized in massacring innocent civilians randomly .

    “Some argue that recognition of the genocide has become even more problematic now, when the world is at war with terrorism and the United States cannot afford to offend the sensibility of our Turkish(&UAE ) ally.” ~ Adam Schiff

    “Silence becomes cowardice when occasion demands speaking out the whole truth and acting accordingly.”

    We still hopefully beseech the international community to condemn the genocide in Tigray, Oromia and else where in Ethiopia and act accordingly to save further loss of lives, halt continued mass arrest, rape, arrest , robbery, and destruction based on ethnic and political view.
    Blocking humanitarian corridor eagerly seeking massive death from your man made famine is potentially a war crime to rank with Nazi genocide.
    Historians are ready to expand their list of evil and narcissist leaders to include the infamous Turkish leader, Mr Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who is leaving genocidal history to his successors and his revered people. Turkish people should condemn his genocidal act .
