Ethiopia shuts down telecom service from Mekelle city once again

Report reaching us from Tigray region say Abiy administration has completely shutdown the telecom service tonight from Mekelle, the capital city of Tigray region once again.
This shutdown came at a time when there are reports of fierce fighting between Ethiopian and Eritrean forces that are said to be taking place on the outskirts of Mekelle city.
 
Since the Tigray war started on 4 November 2020, a blanket internet shutdown was implemented by the Ethiopian government, cutting the entire region off, and denying people their fundamental rights to freedom of expression and access to information.
 
The current shutdown adds to a growing list of government-mandated blackouts in Ethiopia and is becoming a go-to tool for authorities to muzzle opponents, hide atrocities and control the narrative.
Ethiopia has previously shut down the internet more than 15 times, and most recently in addition to the Tigray region, the government has cut off the internet for approximately three months in the Oromia region.

  1. Eritreans, took the story of their enslavement , and barbaric act of PJDF in SAWA and hell bent on repeating it in Tigray . And they are striving to repeat the barbaric act on others . According to experts For people who lived in high conflict area being abused , abusive behavior can seem normative.For many abused Eritrean youths at sawa ,killing, raping is normal .As you might have heard from the eritrean pastor , general Philopos and his collegues are renowned rapists .

    Humans are the glory and the scum of the universe, concluded the French philosopher, Blaise Pascal, in 1658. This applies exclusively to Eritreans who are committing heinous crimes in Tigray ; they used to tell us that Ethiopians under TPLF regime deported them. They are not even capable to present the atrocities or crime committed against them except deportation and loss of their houses or whatever they left behind during their departure. However, now they are killing, raping , bombing , and destroying infrastructure and heritages. How could a human being a kill a kid woman and priests being heart burned with longing for revenge for the loss of properties back in 90s ? Some also claim that they are committing such atrocities currently because their defeat in 1998-2000 border war. The war crimes perpetrated against civilians by Eritreans are countless and distinct in nature and magnitude. After all, revenge begets revenge. Sadism involves enjoying another person’s humiliation and hurt. Yet it is often said that dehumanising people is what allows us to be cruel. Potential victims are labelled as dogs, lice or cockroaches, allegedly making it easier for others(Eritreans ) to hurt them. ESAT, HIGDEF , Amhara mass media, Yoni magna, Tolosa ibsa and other cyber militia started with hate speech long time ago before this war erupted.They are sadists just as like Abiy Ahmed and Isayas Afwerki.
