Over 1300 civilians have been murdered extrajudicially. #StopWarOnOromia #OromoProtests @DominicRaab @lisanandy @JamesDuddridge Click To Tweet @SenatorMenendez & @SenatorRisch, the Senate Resolution draft is a critical step forward but fails to mention ongoing military occupation in Oromia & extrajudicial killings of over 1300 Oromo civilians. #StopWarOnOromia #OromoProtests @RepGregoryMeeks @RepDeanPhillips Click To Tweet @SenatorMenendez & @SenatorRisch, the Senate Resolution draft is a critical step forward, but fails to mention the 50K+ Oromo political prisoners & war in Oromia, in which > 1300 civilians have been killed by govt. #FreeAllOromoPoliticalPrisoners #OromoProtests Click To Tweet @SenatorMenendez & @SenatorRisch: Jawar Mohammed, Bekele Gerba, Hamza Borana, et al. have been on hunger strike for 40 days to demand the release of Oromo prisoners of conscience. There are over 50,000 Oromo political prisoners. #StarvingForJustice #OromoProtests Click To Tweet If free & fair elections were to be held in Oromia, the Prosperity Party knows it wouldn't stand a chance. It has thus resorted to violence, arresting OFC & OLF leaders & closing down their offices all over Oromia. @RepGregoryMeeks @RepMcCaul #OromoProtests Click To Tweet Ethiopia is on the brink of collapse. The only solution to bring stability & lasting peace is holding a national dialogue & establishing a transitional gov't. #OromoProtests @SenatorMenendez @SenatorRisch @ChrisCoons @ChrisVanHollen @SenToddYoung @timkaine Click To Tweet The attacks by @PMEthiopia are often targeted at civilians, pose grave challenges to human rights and human dignities, and affect the security and well-being of individuals. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice Click To Tweet @AbiyAhmedAli has increased inter-ethnic violence to destabilise Ethiopia, which has severe consequences for the stability of Ethiopia and the wider Horn of Africa. The international community must intervene. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice  Click To Tweet The @PMEthiopia has decided to accept violence by waging war in Oromia the past two years. This regime has killed, sexually abused, and kidnapped civilians of Oromo dissent. #StarvingForJustice #OromoProtests  Click To Tweet The dangers of extremism ripping apart a society at the seams are very real, with potentially devastating consequences — the @PMEthiopia has done just that. He has waged a genocide on Oromos and marginalized nations.  Click To Tweet In February 2018, Haile-Mariam Dessalegn, former Prime Minister, stepped down, saying his resignation would be “vital in the bid to carry out reforms that would lead to sustainable peace and democracy”. Instead, the reform has waged a war on Oromos. #OromoProtests @SecBlinken  Click To Tweet The @PMEthiopia’s has brought forth significant corruption, bad governance, ill-treatment of persons, lack of rule of law, and inequality, among others, and has been rampant across the country. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice  Click To Tweet Corrupt practices were not limited to the previous regimes of Meles Zenawi and Hailemariam Desalegn —  in fact, it is systemic. The torch was passed off to @PMEthiopia. The systemic oppression needs to END. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice Click To Tweet In September of 2018 in the Burayu town of Finfinnee, scores of civilian deaths were reported. Among those killed, a five year old girl was raped and later died as she succumbed to her injuries. Why is the world silent? #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice  Click To Tweet Between the years of 2017 and 2019, there was a sharp escalation of conflict against the Oromo people which led to a spike in internally displaced persons (IDPs). IDP across the country continues to grow at a record high. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice Click To Tweet The displacement of marginalized nations in Ethiopia has been happening since the creation of Ethiopia. Violent conflict in the Western Guji and Gedero zone displaced an approximate 970,000 people in 2017. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice Click To Tweet By January 2019, at least 2.33 million – but reportedly as many as 3 million – people had been internally displaced between 2017 and 2019. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice Click To Tweet Violent conflict upon the Oromo nation and marginalized nationalities has resulted in devastating social instabilities, far-reaching political crises, and serious peace and security concerns. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice Click To Tweet While using the COVID pandemic as a pretext for repeatedly canceling elections, @AbiyAhmedAli’s regime simultaneously endangered thousands of Oromo lives by packing masses of political prisoners in small spaces. These r gross violations of human rights.#OromoProtests @SecBlinken Click To Tweet The war in Ethiopia did not start in November, and it is not over. Abiy has been waging war in Oromia for many months, and the war is still ongoing in Oromia! #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice @Amnesty @UNHumanRights @RedCross @hrw @SecBlinken @SenatorMenendez @SenatorRisch Click To Tweet The red color symbolizes our pain, our ancestors' bloodshed and sacrifices. We aim to draw awareness to our demands for justice and freedom for the Oromo people and for all underrepresented, marginalized nations and nationalities. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice @Amnesty Click To Tweet Abiy Ahmed had squandered his opportunity to resolve conflict in Ethiopia. Instead, he has waged civil war on multiple fronts and is actively destabilizing Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice @Amnesty @RedCross @hrw @SenatorMenendez @SenatorRisch Click To Tweet The world has forgotten about the Prisoners of Conscience who were on hunger strike for 40 days. Many were unconscious. Some, their health is deteriorating. When will the world hear our pain? @Amnesty #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice @SenatorMenendez Click To Tweet Ethiopia has over 3 million internally displaced persons, and thousands of refugees fleeing the country each day. Abiy has created a disastrous crisis in Ethiopia and the whole region. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice @Amnesty @RedCross @hrw @SenatorMenendez Click To Tweet Is it a coincidence that opposition forces, in parts of Oromia facing telecommunications shutdown + military occupation, are accused of orchestrated massacres, while the govt refuses independent investigations? #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice @Amnesty Click To Tweet It is the innocent people who pay the price of war! End the war against oppressed nations in Ethiopia @AbiyAhmedAli. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice @Amnesty @RedCross @hrw @SenatorMenendez @SenatorRisch Click To Tweet It is naive to think that Ethiopia’s crisis in the north is occurring in a vacuum. Ethiopia has been in crisis on multiple fronts for over 18 months. This context is critical. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice @Amnesty Click To Tweet Refugees exodus in thousands every day from Oromia region into countries such as Yemen. Protests all over Oromia continue. Complete economic blockade. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice @Amnesty @RedCross @hrw @SenatorMenendez Click To Tweet Ethiopia’s transition to a war zone poses a serious security threat to the Horn of Africa and the world. The war started against Oromia and continues against Oromia, Tigray, and the South. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice @Amnesty @RedCross @hrw @SenatorMenendez Click To Tweet In the last few months, state forces massacred hundreds of innocent Oromo civilians and imprisoned thousands. Next, war extended to Tigray. There is no state-building through terror! #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice @Amnesty @RedCross @hrw @SenatorMenendez Click To Tweet The world can no longer stay silent when it comes to global human rights violations. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice @Amnesty @EUCouncil @hrw @RepGregoryMeeks @SenatorMenendez Click To Tweet #OromoProtests categorically condemns @AbiyAhmedAli’s political war. Political challenges should be addressed via all-inclusive dialogue, not drones. #OromoProtests #StarvingForJustice @Amnesty @SecBlinken @EU_Commission @hrw Click To Tweet Today it has been more than 8 months since the asssasination of Hacaaluu Hundeessaa. Ethiopian authorities have ma. I’m calling on @AbiyAhmedAli to answer the demands of the prisoners. #OromoProtests Click To Tweet It is just shy over 7 months since the assassination of our beloved artist, humanitarian, Hacaalu Hundessa. #OromoProtests @Amnesty @Reuters @AP @EUCouncil @markc_anderson @FemiOke @rosenthal_jon @JosepBorrellF @abdurrahmanezz  Click To Tweet There is a conflict and humanitarian crisis in Ethiopia's Oromia region, I am calling on @AbiyAhmedAli to immediately answer the demands of the prisoners of conscience. #OromoProtests also calls for an END to the war in Oromia. @Amnesty @Reuters @AP @EUCouncil Click To Tweet We ask @SecBlinken to request for an independent investigation on mass-killings of civilians, rape, the unlawful detainment of activists, mass looting, destruction of property in the Oromia. @AbiyAhmedAli, #AllowAccessToTigray. #OromoProtests  Click To Tweet “The one thing we do know is that every additional day of waiting for help will only worsen children’s suffering.” #StarvingForJustice #OromoProtests @Amnesty @AbiyAhmedAli @SecBlinken @KamalaHarris @UNICEF @markc_anderson @FemiOke @rosenthal_jon @JosepBorrellF @abdurrahmanezz Click To Tweet 250+ days5,232+ hours313,920+ minutes18,835,200+ secondsof the war on Oromia.
