#COIforTigray Pt. 1

1. While the world celebrated unity between Ethiopia & Eritrea in 2018, dictator Isaias Afwerki & fascist @AbiyAhmedAli created a perfidious plan to keep themselves in power. #TigrayGenocide #COIforTigray@AM_PSC @BilleHermann @NDeRiviere#COIforTigray https://tghat.com/2021/03/31/who-started-the-war-on-tigray/

2. .@AbiyAhmedAli has decided against peace. Instead of stopping the #TigrayGenocide, he is escalating it. We ask that EU nations and the @UN hold a special session to discuss atrocities in Tigray. #COIforTigray @AraratMirzoyan @MFAofArmenia @ArmeniaUN

3. One of the deadliest massacres took place a year ago, known as the #AxumMassacre. To get justice for the victims, independent investigations are needed and not distorted by the Ethiopian govt + @DanielBekele.#COIforTigray @BulgariaUNHCR @MFABulgariahttps://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/press-release/2021/02/ethiopia-eritrean-troops-massacre-of-hundreds-of-axum-civilians-may-amount-to-crime-against-humanity/

4. Tigrayans have been unlawfully targeted, ethnically cleansed and massacred. We ask that Germany hold a special session with other EU nations + the @UN to call for a Commission of Inquiry. #COIforTigray@GermanyUN @HeikoMaas @AuswaertigesAmt @EUSR_Weber https://apnews.com/article/ethiopia-tigray-minority-ethnic-cleansing-sudan-world-news-842741eebf9bf0984946619c0fc15023

5. Why won’t the Ethiopian govt allow a true independent probe into the atrocities in Tigray? What exactly is @AbiyAhmedAli and @DanielBekele hiding, and why is Tigray still in the dark? #COIforTigray #TigrayGenocide@UNHumanRights @JeppeKofod @DanishMFAhttps://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/11/2/ethiopia-tried-to-limit-rare-un-probe-on-tigray-abuses-report

6. .@EthioHRC has done everything in its power to conceal many of the atrocities committed in Tigray. It cannot be trusted to conduct further investigations. We need #COIforTigray. #TigrayGenocide @JY_LeDrian @simoncoveney @franceonu @irishmissionunhttps://apnews.com/article/africa-united-nations-kenya-ethiopia-abiy-ahmed-ccf2665d453f6af0d08e3bdf8db81b96

7. Infrastructure destroyed, land theft, possessions looted, and countless massacres in #TigrayGenocide. Now, Tigrayans are subjected to starvation. The @UN & EU must hold talks + pressure Abiy Ahmed’s genocidal govt. #COIforTigray @MauMassari @luigidimaio https://apnews.com/article/Counting-Ethiopias-War-Dead-Vignette-bf8a387633403e899289078ac9c943a0

8.“Never again” is a slogan often used by EU politicians to show disapproval of genocide. How can the @UN endorse the involvement of state-led @EthioHRC in investigating war crimes in Tigray? We need a #COIforTigray. @dfatirl @irishmissionun @simoncoveney https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/nov/02/report-on-tigray-civil-war-to-be-released-amid-objectivity-concerns

9. A govt that weaponizes food and rape cannot be assigned with investigating its own crimes. It’s critical that a @UN session is held to discuss #TigrayGenocide + establish a #COIforTigray.@UNHumanRights @ItalyUN_NY @CzechUNNY@Denmark_UN @UKRinUNhttps://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/nov/02/report-on-tigray-civil-war-to-be-released-amid-objectivity-concerns

10. Independent investigations and a Commission of Inquiry are the only valid options to bring accountability to the genocidal crimes that have been committed in Tigray. #COIforTigray #TigrayGenocide @PolandMFA @RauZbigniew @MSZ_RP @JakubKulhanek @EUSR_Weberhttps://apnews.com/article/africa-united-nations-kenya-ethiopia-abiy-ahmed-ccf2665d453f6af0d08e3bdf8db81b96

#COIforTigray Pt. 2

1. .@DanielBekele’s involvement in investigating atrocities committed in Tigray has produced a biased report. It is critical that @UNHumanRights & EU member states consider #COIforTigray. @MFABulgaria @DmytroKuleba @UKUN_NewYork @irishmissionun @franceonu https://tghat.com/2021/03/20/why-ehrc-should-not-investigate-abuses-of-human-rights-in-tigray/

2. “I saw many bodies, even priests. They killed all Tigrayans.” We urge the Int’l community to stand firmly with Tigrayans with concrete actions to hold Ethiopia and Eritrea to account. #COIforTigray #TigrayGenocide @ArmeniaUN @AraratMirzoyan @UNHumanRights https://apnews.com/article/ethiopia-tigray-minority-ethnic-cleansing-sudan-world-news-842741eebf9bf0984946619c0fc15023

3. .@EthioHRC has underplayed the atrocities committed in Tigray. Justice must be served through an independent investigation & must include all massacres left out of the joint report with @UNHumanRights. #COIforTigray @Dmytrokuleba @PLinUN @NLatUN @UKRinUN https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/11/2/ethiopia-tried-to-limit-rare-un-probe-on-tigray-abuses-report

4. Tigrayan women and girls continue to be victims of gang rape and sexual slavery in the concentration camps of western Tigray. We demand that the EU and @UNHumanRights take #COIforTigray seriously. @ministerBZ @trussliz @AM_PSC @DmytroKuleba @dfatirl https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2021/08/ethiopia-troops-and-militia-rape-abduct-women-and-girls-in-tigray-conflict-new-report/

5. The involvement of state-owned @EthioHRC in the investigation of war crimes has led to a biased report. The #TigrayGenocide must be investigated impartially & independently! @UNHumanRights & EU must call for a #COIforTigray. @ministerBZ @MSZ_RP @CzechUNNY https://tghat.com/2021/03/20/why-ehrc-should-not-investigate-abuses-of-human-rights-in-tigray/

6. “Their aim is to leave no Tigrayan.” Amhara forces occupying western Tigray today, continue to commit ethnic cleansing. Thousands have either been massacred or taken to concentration camps. #COIforTigray @BilleHermann @JeppeKofod @DanishMFA @Denmark_UNhttps://apnews.com/article/ethiopia-tigray-minority-ethnic-cleansing-sudan-world-news-842741eebf9bf0984946619c0fc15023

7. Tigrayans are being abducted & put into internment camps throughout Ethiopia. Tigrayans are held in camps w/o adequate food, water or sanitation facilities. Priests, nuns, @UN staff, children under age of 3 & elderly are not spared! @SecBlinken @JosepBorrellF #TigrayMassArrests

8. For the past year, Tigrayans have been subjected to barbaric killing sprees and gang rapes, a man-made famine and so much more. The genocidal governments of Ethiopia & Eritrea must be held accountable. #COIforTigray #TigrayGenocide @BulgariaUNHCR @AM_PSC https://www.aljazeera.com/opinions/2021/11/4/tigray-is-starving-it-is-time-for-the-un-to-act

9. Contrary to what @AbiyAhmedAli & his govt claim, events leading up to the #TigrayGenocide show that it was pre-planned by the genocidal regimes of Ethiopia and Eritrea. The @UN must establish #COIforTigray. @KSzczerski @SergiyKyslytsya @MauMassari https://tghat.com/2021/03/31/who-started-the-war-on-tigray/

10. We mourn the 1st anniversary of #AxumMassacre knowing that justice was denied. @EthioHRC intentionally failed to report a deadly massacre + other killings across Tigray. Thousands have perished in the dark. #COIforTigray @BWoodward_UN @DmytroKuleba https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/press-release/2021/02/ethiopia-eritrean-troops-massacre-of-hundreds-of-axum-civilians-may-amount-to-crime-against-humanity/

#COIforTigray Pt. 3

1. “Nous avons vu des choses de pure méchanceté, des gens dont le cou était coupé, des membres pendus.” Le manque d’impartialité & de crédibilité de @EthioHRC est évident depuis le début de la guerre génocidaire en Novembre 2020. #COIforTigray @NDeRivierehttps://tghat.com/2021/03/03/survivors-recount-the-mai-kadra-massacre/

2. La commission conjointe @EthioHRC & @UNHumanRights n’a pas visité Maryam Dengelat et de nombreux autres sites où des massacres ont eu lieu. NOUS DEMANDONS une enquête immédiate et indépendante menée par l’ONU. #COIforTigray @UN @franceonu @JY_LeDrian https://edition.cnn.com/2021/02/26/africa/ethiopia-tigray-dengelat-massacre-intl/index.html

3. Während die Welt 2018 den Frieden zwischen ????????&???????? gefeiert hat,haben Diktator Isaias Afwerki & Faschist @AbiyAhmedAli einen perfiden Plan kreiert,um sich an der Macht zu halten&den #TigrayGenocide zu entwerfen! @HeikoMaas @mbachelet @UNHCR_de #COIforTigray https://tghat.com/2021/03/31/who-started-the-war-on-tigray/

4. .@AbiyAhmedAli hat sich mal wieder gegen Frieden&für Gewalt entschieden.Statt den #TigrayGenocidezu stoppen & versucht er von der Front aus,das Land ???????? ins Verderben zu lenken! #COIforTigray @HeikoMaas@GermanyDiplo @GermanyUN @AustriaUN @MFA_Austria https://www.theafricareport.com/149787/ethiopias-abiy-from-peace-prize-to-frontline-fighter/?utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=post_articles_twitter_24_11_2021&utm_medium=social

5. Vor 365 Tagen fand das #AxumMassacre statt!Eins von vielen im #TigrayGenocide!Um Gerechtigkeit für die Opfer zu bekommen,benötigt es unabhängige Untersuchungen,die nicht durch die Regierung ????????+ @DanielBekele verfälscht werden!!!#COIforTigray @GermanyDiplo https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/press-release/2021/02/ethiopia-eritrean-troops-massacre-of-hundreds-of-axum-civilians-may-amount-to-crime-against-humanity/

6. #COIforTigray Wieso lässt die ???????? Regierung keine unabhängigen Untersuchung über die Gräueltaten im Rahmen des #TigrayGenocide zu?Was haben @AbiyAhmedAli und @DanielBekele zu verbergen? @HeikoMaas @GermanyDiplo @GermanyUN @LinhartBMEIA @AM_PSC @MFA_Austria https://www.aljazeera.com/opinions/2021/11/24/there-is-need-for-a-truly-independent-probe-into-ethiopia-abuses

7. Tigrayan civilians have been tortured, drowned, burned, raped & massacred! @DanielBekele’s @EthioHRC played a big part in hiding these atrocities. @MauMassari must ask for a @UN led independent investigation #COIforTigray #TigrayGenocide @luigidimaio https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/11/2/ethiopia-tried-to-limit-rare-un-probe-on-tigray-abuses-report

8. We have recently mourned the 1st anniversary of the incredibly gruesome #AxumMassacre. Due to @AbiyAhmedAli’s close ties with @EthioHRC, there has not been an independent investigation to assure accountability. We demand a #COIforTigray! @luigidimaio @UN https://www.aljazeera.com/opinions/2021/11/24/there-is-need-for-a-truly-independent-probe-into-ethiopia-abuses

9. Despite overwhelming evidence, the massacres of Adigrat, Axum, Debre Abay, Edaga Berhe, Gijet, Mahibere Dego, and Togoga were not investigated.The @UN & @EthioHRC failed to deliver justice. #COIforTigray @irishmissionun @PieroBenassi @MFABulgariahttps://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/nov/02/report-on-tigray-civil-war-to-be-released-amid-objectivity-concerns

10. Countless civilians have died in the ongoing #TigrayGenocide. Yet, independent human rights groups, humanitarian orgs & Int’l media are banned from Tigray. Govt appointed @EthioHRC is not credible. @ItalyMFA must ask for a #COIforTigray @pierofassinohttps://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/nov/02/report-on-tigray-civil-war-to-be-released-amid-objectivity-concerns

#COIforTigray Pt. 4

1. Considering the fallacies in the @UN & @EthioHRC joint investigation, @luigidimaio, @ItalyinEU & @ItalyUN_NY must act in order to establish an independent #COIforTigray. There must be accountability for the crimes committed by @AbiyAhmedAli in Tigray!https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/nov/02/report-on-tigray-civil-war-to-be-released-amid-objectivity-concerns

2. “Five warning signs for mass, ethnically targeted violence are flashing red.” It’s been through hate speech, mobilized militias, and mass internment.When will the @IntlCrimCourt take action? #COIforTigray @ItalyUN_Vienna @UNGeneva @NLatUN@PLinUN https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/nov/26/ethiopia-genocide-warning-signs-abiy-ahmed

3. The establishment of a new #COIforTigray must be the top priority in the new Treaty of coop. b/w @francediplo_EN???????? & @ItalyMFA????????. Both nations must engage actively in the pursuit of accountability of those who committed war crimes in the #TigrayGenocide. https://tghat.com/2021/03/20/why-ehrc-should-not-investigate-abuses-of-human-rights-in-tigray/

4. .@EU_Commission must consider the @EthioHRC-led investigation in Tigray as biased & unreliable. The only way to obtain accountability is to establish an impartial & internationally recognized #COIforTigray! #TigrayGenocide @MauMassari @ItalyMFA @FAOhttps://tghat.com/2021/03/20/why-ehrc-should-not-investigate-abuses-of-human-rights-in-tigray/

5. .@DanielBekele’s @EthioHRC has whitewashed or denied unspeakable atrocities committed by ENDF soldiers, Amhara militia & Eritrean troops during #TigrayGenocide. @ItalyinEU must help Tigrayans in getting their justice & freedom. We need a #COIforTigray!https://www.aljazeera.com/opinions/2021/11/24/there-is-need-for-a-truly-independent-probe-into-ethiopia-abuses

6. The links b/w @EthioHRC & @AbiyAhmedAli are simply an affront to impartiality. @PieroBenassi & @MauMassari must work for the creation of an independent #COIforTigray. Credibility comes only with impartiality! @eucopresident @ItalyinEU @ItalyUN_NY @FAO https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/nov/02/report-on-tigray-civil-war-to-be-released-amid-objectivity-concerns

7. Any investigation involving state-affiliated @EthioHRC will only help @AbiyAhmedAli in downplaying his atrocities. All stakeholders must urge a Commission of Inquiry for Tigray. #COIforTigray @luigidimaio @ItalyMFA @ItalyUN_Vienna @FilippoGrandihttps://www.aljazeera.com/opinions/2021/11/24/there-is-need-for-a-truly-independent-probe-into-ethiopia-abuses

8. Given the multiple atrocities that @DanielBekele purposely omitted, @hrw urged for an independent #COIforTigray. The previous joint investigation involving state-affiliated @EthioHRC is simply unreliable. @luigidimaio must condemn #TigrayGenocide @FAO https://www.hrw.org/news/2021/11/04/international-investigation-needed-abuses-ethiopia

9. “By excluding the voices of the majority of victims, the UN violated its cardinal principle of a victim-centred investigation.” It is critical that EU & @UN leaders meet to discuss #COIforTigray. @ItalyUN_NY @franceonu @NDeRiviere @dfatirl @JakubKulhanekhttps://www.theelephant.info/op-eds/2021/11/27/joint-un-ethiopia-atrocities-report-poison-fruit-of-poisonous-tree/

10..@EthioHRC will never be a neutral institution. On the contrary, @DanielBekele worked tirelessly to protect @AbiyAhmedAli’s genocidal regime. None of the scenes of the most gruesome massacres were investigated. @mbachelet @FilippoGrandi @FAO #COIforTigray https://tghat.com/2021/03/20/why-ehrc-should-not-investigate-abuses-of-human-rights-in-tigray/

#COIforTigray Pt. 5

1. The @EthioHRC is nothing but @PMEthiopia’s watchdog. In fact, its latest joint investigation did not include the most gruesome massacres like #AxumMassacre & #DengelatMassacre. We demand a #COIforTigray @mbachelet @lauraboldrini @ItalyMFA @hickspeggy https://tghat.com/2021/03/20/why-ehrc-should-not-investigate-abuses-of-human-rights-in-tigray

2. “The joint investigation’s report failed to establish facts because the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) had no access to the location it purported to cover & where most of the crimes are presumed to have been committed.” #COIforTigray @AmbMKimani @UNOSAPGhttps://www.theelephant.info/op-eds/2021/11/27/joint-un-ethiopia-atrocities-report-poison-fruit-of-poisonous-tree/

3. “The soldiers went door to door. A pregnant woman was shot, her husband killed.” @EthioHRC’s incomplete probe is an injustice to victims of countless untold massacres throughout Tigray. #COIforTigray @AraratMirzoyan @LinhartBMEIA @JakubKulhanek @dfatirlhttps://www.cnn.com/2021/02/26/africa/ethiopia-tigray-dengelat-massacre-intl/index.html

4. These are some of the heartbreaking stories of #IrobMassacre not included in the @UN & EHRC investigation. #COIforTigray is a crucial first step in ensuring full accountability for all atrocities. @AraratMirzoyan @trussliz @yokabrandt @BWoodward_UN

5. .@EthioHRC failed to consider all atrocities from areas like Axum, Abi Addi, Hagere Selam, Togoga, Irob, Adwa, Adigrat, Hawzen, Gijet & Mariam Dengelat. This was intentional because they have blood on their hands. We demand a #COIforTigray. @UKUN_NewYork https://www.aljazeera.com/opinions/2021/11/24/there-is-need-for-a-truly-independent-probe-into-ethiopia-abuses

6. Involving @EthioHRC to investigate atrocities in Tigray was a huge mistake that has caused further damage. Justice has not been served. A true independent probe must be performed. #COIforTigray@mbachelet @CzechMFA @JakubKulhanek@JeppeKofod @DanishMFAhttps://www.aljazeera.com/opinions/2021/11/24/there-is-need-for-a-truly-independent-probe-into-ethiopia-abuses

7. The Irob people have endured heinous atrocities by Ethiopian & Eritrean troops. The @UN has a responsibility to protect these civilians and demand a #COIforTigray. They risked their lives to tell their stories. @simoncoveney @unwomenchief @AmbMKimani @hrw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tp-hUiw3SoI

8. There have been warranted concerns about @EthioHRC’s involvement in investigating atrocities in Tigray, because of its record of partiality and demonstrated bias against Tigrayans. We need #COIforTigray. @trussliz @yokabrandt @BWoodward_UN#COIforTigray https://apnews.com/article/africa-united-nations-kenya-ethiopia-abiy-ahmed-ccf2665d453f6af0d08e3bdf8db81b96

9. .@EthioHRC has underplayed the atrocities committed across Tigray, by leaving out some of the deadliest massacres in Ethiopia’s history. @UNHumanRights must serve justice and not turn a blind eye. #COIforTigray@mbachelet @UKUN_NewYork @irishmissionunhttps://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/feb/26/hundreds-died-in-axum-massacre-during-tigray-war-says-amnesty

10. “The people who were hiding us who are very pro-Abiy said that Tigrayans were the ones who started the massacre. But we saw it with our own eyes. Tigrayans were being attacked. We saw Tigrayans being killed.”#COIforTIgray @irishmissionun @Denmark_UNhttps://tghat.com/2021/03/03/survivors-recount-the-mai-kadra-massacre/

#COIforTigray Pt. 6

1. “Four of my siblings died when the artillery hit our home. Welketut [collaborators] & Fano were saying that they don’t want to see any Tigrayans & we will slaughter you.” The whole truth about #TigrayGenocide must be told. #COIforTigray @mbachelet @hrwhttps://sayarainternational.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/Humanitarian-Crisis-in-Ethiopia-E.-Sudan-Sayara-report-Dec-2020.pdf

2. “People rightfully questioned what purpose an investigation into atrocities could serve if it is conducted with the help of and under the conditions set by the alleged perpetrators.” #COIforTigray@yokabrandt @KSzczerski @SergiyKyslytsya @BWoodward_UNhttps://www.aljazeera.com/opinions/2021/11/24/there-is-need-for-a-truly-independent-probe-into-ethiopia-abuses

3. Any investigation involving state-affiliated @EthioHRC only serves to downplay atrocities in Tigray, committed by both the Ethiopian and Eritrean governments. We need a #COIforTigray. #TigrayGenocide@BulgariaUNHCR @franceonu @UKUN_NewYork @UKRinUNhttps://www.aljazeera.com/opinions/2021/11/24/there-is-need-for-a-truly-independent-probe-into-ethiopia-abuses

4. The joint investigation team did not visit the scenes of #AxumMassacre, one of the most gruesome. @UNHumanRights has said this is because of Abiy’s siege on Tigray. Lift the siege & commence investigations. #COIforTigray @MFAofArmenia@PolandMFA https://apnews.com/article/africa-united-nations-kenya-ethiopia-abiy-ahmed-ccf2665d453f6af0d08e3bdf8db81b96

5. As a man-made famine takes place in Tigray, the Irob ppl. are under full Eritrean military occupation. Their stories of weaponized rape & massacres should have been investigated by @EthioHRC & @UNHumanRights. #COIforTigray #IrobMassacre @AM_PSC @trusslizhttps://apnews.com/article/world-news-eritrea-ethiopia-kenya-e84f072e2f08e542652b8f4dac09a3f8

6. “The north is dying. I strongly believe there is a campaign to target the people. Every public & private institution is looted.” The north is occupied by Eritrean soldiers,” said a man from Irob. @UNHumanRights must push for #COIforTigray. @BWoodward_UNhttps://apnews.com/article/world-news-eritrea-ethiopia-kenya-e84f072e2f08e542652b8f4dac09a3f8

7. This is a partial list of victims killed by invading Eritrean Forces in the Irob area of Tigray. Justice must be served for those senselessly killed for their ethnicity. We demand a true independent investigation. #COIforTigray @UNHumanRights @ArmeniaUN

8. Eritrean forces invaded various Irob villages in Tigray, and massacred innocent civilians. Families were denied burial of their loved ones. These crimes against humanity must be investigated. #COIforTigray @mbachelet @irishmissionun @UKUN_NewYorkhttps://irobanina.org/irob/irob-massacre-victims

9. Although witnesses have said that the perpetrators of most abuses were Eritrean, Ethiopian & Amhara forces, @DanielBekele pushed to highlight abuses by Tigrayan forces. This is a distorted probe. #COIforTigray @irishmissionun @franceonu @UNHumanRightshttps://apnews.com/article/africa-united-nations-kenya-ethiopia-abiy-ahmed-ccf2665d453f6af0d08e3bdf8db81b96


#StopRapeInTigray Pt. 1

1. Why has the @UN allowed weaponized rape to go unchecked across Tigray? Sexual violence is still actively taking place in concentration camps in Humera. #16DaysofActivism2021 #TigrayMassArrests #16Days @unwomenchief @KenyaMissionUN @Niger_ONU @PmTunisia https://apnews.com/article/africa-180f41945ae512e8170ca05b0cc65540

4. The brutality of rape & sexual slavery has not come close to ending in western Tigray.

6. Women are still subjected to gang rape & sexual slavery in concentration camps in western Tigray. Survivors are suffering in the dark as @UN & @_AfricanUnion fail to take meaningful action to stop #TigrayMassArrests. #16DaysofActivism2021 @unwomenchief https://edition.cnn.com/2021/08/12/africa/tigray-ethiopia-sexual-violence-amnesty-report-intl/index.html

7. Sexual violence has been weaponized against Tigrayans and It’s still ongoing in western Tigray where girls and women including boys and men face gang rape and torture. All invading forces must withdraw. #16DaysofActivism2021 @SecBlinken @LindaT_G @USUN https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2021/08/ethiopia-troops-and-militia-rape-abduct-women-and-girls-in-tigray-conflict-new-report/

8. Tigrayans have been ethnically cleansed & forcibly removed from their indigenous lands by Amhara forces. The #TigrayGenocide continues as Tigrayans are abducted, killed & raped. #16DaysofActivism2021 #TigrayMassArrests @ChrisCoons @SenThomTillis https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/new-waves-of-displacement-reported-in-western-tigray-un/ar-AAR5N8I

9. Why has the @UN allowed weaponized rape with impunity? For over a year, we have pleaded for the @UN to #StopRapeInTigray. Women in western Tigray are still under attack by invading forces. @MexOnu @UKUN_NewYork @franceonu @UNGeneva #16DaysofActivism2021 https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/the-assault-on-health-care-in-tigray/ar-AANk3qb

10. There are new reports of sexual violence in concentration camps in western Tigray. Tigrayans are enduring weaponized rape.

#StopRapeInTigray Pt. 2

3. We are now marking #1YearOfTigrayGenocide: 365 days of massacres, SGBV, mass rapes, mutilations & induced famine. What will it take for @luigidimaio & @Palazzo_Chigi to abandon the sinking ship of @AbiyAhmedAli’s genocidal regime? Shame @ItalyMFA! https://cnn.it/3BAjTUa

4. It’s now been #1YearOfTigrayGenocide, yet @Palazzo_Chigi, @luigidimaio & @pierofassino continue to deliberately overlook @AbiyAhmedAli’s ongoing atrocities, mass rapes & man-made famine in Tigray to safeguard Italy’s economic interests with @PMEthiopia. https://bit.ly/2ZMWiTa

#COIforTigray Pt. 1

#COIforTigray Pt. 3

1. “The soldiers picked 12 young deacons between the ages of 15 and 20. They took them out & shot them down.” How can we rely on @DanielBekele to report on #TigrayGenocide when he leaves out critical information? #COIforTigray @AraratMirzoyan @NikosDendias https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/terror-and-security/least-78-priests-massacred-one-zone-tigray-leaked-letter-claims/

3. Allowing a govt that’s accused of genocide to investigate itself will naturally make this investigation bias & lack truth. For a truly credible investigation, Ethiopia must not be involved! #COIforTigray @USAmbUN @TebbouneAmadjid @FEGnassingbe @UN_CAR https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/11/2/ethiopia-tried-to-limit-rare-un-probe-on-tigray-abuses-report

5. Ethiopia’s continued denial of what witnesses, survivors & video evidence shows to be crimes against humanity committed by Ethiopian & Eritrean troops, makes @EthioHRC unfit to take part in investigations.#COIforTigray @ignaziocassis @BarrowPresidenthttps://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/ethiopia-limit-rare-report-tigray-war-abuses-80918805

7. A joint investigation with @EthioHRC is fraudulent as it failed to include widely reported #AxumMassacre and #DengelatMassacre.

4. The ultimate mockery of the plight of the millions of victims in #TigrayGenocide would be to ignore that the same govt that has looted, burned, raided, maimed, & killed would now like to conduct a thorough + unbiased probe of their own crimes. #COIforTigray @UN_HRC @mbachelet

5. “They took an ax to my head. They hit me 3 times, and I fell. Look at my ear. They cut it with a knife.” @EthioHRC’s Daniel Bekele did an injustice to Tigrayans by hiding the truth at start of #TigrayGenocide. We need #COIforTigray. @SecBlinken @USUN https://tghat.com/2021/03/03/survivors-recount-the-mai-kadra-massacre/

#NoFlyZoneInTigray Pt. 2

2. Indiscriminately bombing a city of over 500k that is giving refuge to thousands of IDPs can only have one objective – destruction of Tigray & its people.

13. Ethiopia deliberately created the world’s worst famine in #Tigray & cut off access to medicine. Doctors have no way to aid the children who were just struck by Ethiopia’s air strikes. This is state terrorism. This is #TigrayGenocide @Yamiche @mehdirhasan https://t.co/3FwGOPzFaN

3. Tigray was bombed today by the Ethiopian gov’t. The recent airstrikes show Ethiopia is targeting innocent civilians in Tigray & not military targets. The US must protect innocent civilians. #StopBombingTigray @SenateForeignn @RepGregoryMeeks @SenSchumer https://nation.africa/kenya/news/africa/ethiopian-military-airstrikes-kill-3-in-tigray-capital–3587782

4. Ethiopian gov’t is bombing + terrorizing Tigrayans while they are facing famine due to aid blockages by forces allied to the Ethiopian gov’t and the complete destruction of Tigray’s agriculture by these same forces. #StopBombingTigray @RepGregoryMeeks https://nation.africa/kenya/news/africa/ethiopian-military-airstrikes-kill-3-in-tigray-capital–3587782

5. Just a few weeks before the 1 year anniversary of #Ethiopia’s war on #Tigray, Abiy Ahmed has once again proven to be a war criminal by bombing the most populated city in Tigray. #MekelleUnderAttack #StopBombingTigray @BorisJohnson @RepBrianMast #TigrayGenocide

6. Nearly a whole year of Ethiopia intentionally targeting ethnic Tigrayans. Today we witnessed bombings on civilians in Tigray’s capital city Mekelle, a city still recovering from an invasion. @UN @RepGregoryMeeks #MekelleUnderAttack #StopBombingTigray @EP_President @RepSarbanes

7. “They arrested me from the street because I spoke Tigrinya”. Tigrayans are being targeted both in & out of Tigray. Ethiopia has made it clear that their war is against an entire ethnic group, this is a Genocide! @IntlCrimCourt @USNATO #StopBombingTigray https://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/ethiopia-conflict-tigrayans/

8. Ethiopia has targeted civilians in Tigray for too long without being held accountable. Civilians should not be targets, sanction Ethiopia now! #MekelleUnderAttack #StopBombingTigray @NorwayUN @USUN @Birmo https://www.aljazeera.com/amp/news/2021/10/18/air-strikes-hit-capital-of-ethiopias-tigray-regional-media

9. One week after the US threatens sanctions, Ethiopia bombs Tigray’s capital. The Ethiopian govt refuses negotiations & has escalated the conflict. Per the executive order, the US must impose sanctions. @JoeBiden @StateDept @SecBlinken #StopBombingTigray https://www.ibtimes.com/deadly-air-strikes-hit-capital-ethiopias-tigray-3318820

10. Ethiopia is using aerial bombardment to terrorize innocent civilians. They bombed 64 people in the #TogogaMassacre and today, they bombed civilians in Tigray. We demand the @UN implement a #NoFlyZoneInTigray to prevent further death! #StopBombingTigray https://www.ibtimes.com/deadly-air-strikes-hit-capital-ethiopias-tigray-3318820

#StopBombingTigray Pt. 2

1. Mekelle, Tigray is still recovering from famine and lack of aid, yet @AbiyAhmedAli is sending airstrikes on market day. Intervention is needed now! @NormaJTorres #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @EUatUN https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2021/10/18/africa/ethiopia-tigray-mekelle-airstrikes-intl/index.html

2. Our pleas to the the int’l community to uphold their principles to protect civilians facing a genocide has been falling on deaf ears for 11+ months. Their inaction to stop. @AbiyAhmedAli keeps costing lives #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @MexOnu @franceonu @NATOCanada @UN

3. Once again, @AbiyAhmedAli is openly bombing civilians in Tigray. #MekelleUnderAttack . We demand @UN implement a #NoFlyZoneInTigray. ACT NOW #StopBombingTigray @SecBlinken @USAmbUN @StateDept @USUN @USUNSpox @WHCOS @USAID @DeputySecState @unicefchief @UnderSecStateP @UnderSecPD

4. .@AbiyAhmedAli faced no consequences for #TogogaMassacre from IC and as a result, he launched additional airstrikes on civilians of Mekelle. This has always been a war on the people of Tigray. #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @LindaT_G @SecBlinken @USAmbUN @StateDept @USUN

5. Targeting civilians is a war crime yet the international community has failed to hold @AbiyAhmedAli accountable. He is now back at bombing civilians in Mekelle #MekelleUnderAttack #StopBombingTigray @BWoodward_UN @USAmbUN @AmbMKimani @antonioguterres https://www.reuters.com/world/africa/mekelle-capital-ethiopias-tigray-hit-by-air-strikes-regional-tv-2021-10-18/

6. There hasn’t been fighting in Mekelle in months. Flying warplanes to Mekelle to bomb civilians is incomprehensible. @AbiyAhmedAli must be stopped and brought to justice. @MexOnu @NorwayUN @USUN @LindaT_G @ICC @POTUS https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/10/18/air-strikes-hit-capital-of-ethiopias-tigray-regional-media

7. The Abiy regime has been emboldened by the IC’s inaction. Failure to decisively respond to today’s war crimes in #Mekelle will invite more impunity. Inaction is not an option! #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @SecBlinken @JosepBorrellF @USNATO @franceonu @_AfricanUnion

8. Threats of sanctions on Ethiopia and Eritrea has done nothing to prevent human rights abuses. Today, the Ethiopian govt bombed Mekelle, killing and injuring civilians. Sanctions must be enforced! @SecBlinken @POTUS @VP @jakejsullivan #StopBombingTigray https://www.ibtimes.com/deadly-air-strikes-hit-capital-ethiopias-tigray-3318820

9. The Ethiopian govt is bombing citizens, during an ongoing famine. The int’l community must take action by imposing sanctions, freezing military assets & cutting trade relations with Ethiopia. @JoeBiden @ScottMorrisonMP @Europarl_EN #StopBombingTigray https://www.ibtimes.com/deadly-air-strikes-hit-capital-ethiopias-tigray-3318820

10. Tigray’s capital is home to 500K residents & hundreds of thousands of IDPs. Today, @AbiyAhmedAli performed an airstrike to intentionally target civilians. Ethiopia must be expelled from AGOA status! @USTRSpox @USTradeRep @AmbassadorTai #StopBombingTigray https://www.reuters.com/world/africa/mekelle-capital-ethiopias-tigray-hit-by-air-strikes-regional-tv-2021-10-18/

11. .@AbiyAhmedAli is targeting civilians. Today, he bombed a populous city, already suffering from an engineered famine. This is a Genocide. @IntlCrimCourt & the @UN must take meaningful action! @KenyaMissionUN @irishmissionun @PmTunisia #StopBombingTigray https://www.reuters.com/world/africa/mekelle-capital-ethiopias-tigray-hit-by-air-strikes-regional-tv-2021-10-18/

#StopBombingTigray Pt. 3

1. Per @HRW “The prohibition against intentional attacks against civilians is absolute.” By bombing #Mekelle, the Abiy gov’t is violating int’l law & committing war crimes. Act now to save lives! #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @UN @UNHumanRights @UKUN_NewYork

2. Per article 8 of @IntlCrimCourt’s Rome statue, “intentionally directing attacks against the civilian population” is a WAR CRIME. Ethiopia is committing war crimes in full view of the IC! #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @Europarl_EN@JosepBorrellF @StateDept @USUN @G7

3. . @IntlCrimCourt’s Rome Statue states that “attacking or bombarding, by whatever means, towns, villages, dwellings or buildings which are undefended and which are not military objectives” is a WAR CRIME. #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @RussiaUN @_AfricanUnion @UN

4. Article 7 of Rome Statue of the @IntlCrimCourt states that “an attack directed against any civilian population” is a CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY. Act now to protect thousands of civilians. #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @VietNam_UN @KenyaMissionUN @irishmissionun @NorwayUN

5. Any attack committed as “part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population” is a crime against humanity in int’l law. The IC MUST ACT IMMEDIATELY #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @LindaT_G @JustinTrudeau @EmmanuelMacron @G7 @SecBlinken

6. Emboldened by the int’l community’s lack of action, Abiy’s regime has begun carrying out bombardments of civilian settlements. How many more #Tigrayan lives have to be lost before the world TAKES ACTION? #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @MexOnu @franceonu @NATOCanada @UN

7. Targeting civilians is a war crime and crime against humanity in int’l law. The bombing of #Mekelle must be a RED LINE for the int’l community. This violation must be met with swift and decisive action! #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @MexOnu @franceonu @NATOCanada @UN

8. It is a betrayal of all of Canada’s values to continue funding & supporting a regime which is openly bombing civilians. Defund & sanction the Ethiopian regime for its war crimes & crimes against humanity! #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @JustinTrudeau @NATOCanada @CanadaFP

9. A regime which bombs civilians and commits war crimes & crimes against humanity does not adhere to the Human Rights standards of @AGOAinfo. #RemoveEthiopiaFromAgoa to save thousands of lives! #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @SecBlinken @StateDept @POTUS @AmbassadorTai

#StopBombingTigray Pt. 4

1. This week, healthcare workers in Mekelle protested Ethiopia’s medieval blockade. Today, they faced air strikes that killed several civilians! With no medicine to aid the injured, the death toll will surely rise. #StopBombingTigray @eu_echo @EP_Development https://twitter.com/Sebawyan/status/1449385301076500484/video/1

2. The Ethiopian govt has begun conducting airstrikes on civilians facing the world’s worst famine in blockaded #Tigray. The inaction of world leaders is only emboldening Ethiopia’s state terrorism! #StopBombingTigray @thinkper @Europarl_EN @hickspeggy https://apnews.com/article/ethiopia-tigray-crisis-hunger-malnutrition-a772602d2caac96e8024769c012ce8c6

3. AGOA demands that a nation must “not engage in gross violations of internationally recognized human rights” to receive preferential trade status. Ethiopia’s latest airstrikes on Mekelle should undoubtedly expel their AGOA status. #StopBombingTigray @AmbassadorTai @eu_echo

4. .@AbiyAhmedAli faced no consequences after airstrikes killed dozens of civilians in the #TogogaMassacre. Today, he continued his state terrorism with fresh air strikes on civilians in Mekelle. Your inaction is deadly @LindaT_G @AmbassadorTai @JDevermont @UN #MekelleUnderAttack

5. Children in blockaded Tigray have no access to medicine, vaccinations, food or education. @AbiyAhmedAli is determined to cut off any chance for their survival as he renews air strikes in Mekelle today #StopBombingTigray @HHS_Global @USAID @WHCOS @GlobalHealthOrg @UnderSecStateJ

6. The Ethiopian govt’s decision to bomb Mekelle, Tigray’s capital, which has been free of armed conflict for months, demonstrates their desire to terrorize the civilian population. Take action! @ChrisPappasNH @RepBarbaraLee @CongressmanRaja #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack

7. CIVILIANS ARE NOT TARGETS! Nearly one year into #TigrayGenocide & the Ethiopian govt still cannot make the distinction; aerial bombing Tigray’s most populated city resulting in “many casualties.” #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @UNGeneva @UNOSAPG https://news.yahoo.com/air-strikes-hit-capital-ethiopias-124554881.html

8. The Ethiopian govt’s airstrikes today in Mekelle, a market day for the Tigrayan capital, is reminiscent of the airstrike that struck Togoga’s busy marketplace months prior & shows that Abiy Ahmed is not interested in peace. #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @michaelgwaltz

9. Talks of concern by the int’l community have clearly had little to no impact on @AbiyAhmedAli’s genocidal regime. Emboldened by inaction, the Ethiopian govt continues to target civilians. #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @USAID @NormaJTorres @EUatUN https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/18/africa/ethiopia-tigray-mekelle-airstrikes-intl/index.html

10. At least three people were killed, including two children, with many more casualties as a direct result of Ethiopia’s airstrikes on Tigray’s capital, Mekelle. #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @mnsanzabaganwa @irishmissionun @LindaT_G @RepColinAllred https://news.yahoo.com/air-strikes-hit-capital-ethiopias-124554881.html

#StopBombingTigray Pt. 5

1. Tigray’s civilian population has been suffering from #TigrayGenocide for nearly a year. Ethiopia’s airstrikes on the regional capital of Mekelle today mark the federal Govt’s intensified efforts to terrorize Tigrayans. @UN @JanezLenarcic #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack

2. Humanitarian officials and diplomats confirmed Ethiopian forces hit Tigray’s capital and most populated city with airstrikes, resulting in civilian casualties. #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @EU_Commission @EUCouncil @NATOinAustralia @icpac_igad https://www.france24.com/en/live-news/20211018-air-strikes-hit-capital-of-ethiopia-s-tigray-sources

3. In what other country does a humanitarian ceasefire include aerial bombardments? Ethiopian forces’ execution of airstrikes near a market in Mekelle, show no concern for civilians. #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @SecBlinken @USAmbUN @StateDept @UN https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/18/africa/ethiopia-tigray-mekelle-airstrikes-intl/index.html

5. The Ethiopian govt has once again resorted to bombing civilians to win its genocidal war on Tigray. The Int’l community must go beyond concerns & institute a non-fly zone to save civilians who are facing famine. #StopBombingTigray @RepGusBilirakis @Birmo https://apnews.com/article/ethiopia-tigray-crisis-hunger-malnutrition-a772602d2caac96e8024769c012ce8c6

6. How can IGAD @icpac_igad keep supporting Ethiopia’s genocidal regime as it continues to target civilians in Tigray? The latest casualties are civilians in Mekelle, as bombs were dropped on Tigray’s capital. @_AfricanUnion @Niger_ONU #StopBombingTigray https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/18/africa/ethiopia-tigray-mekelle-airstrikes-intl/index.html

7. After almost 1 year of #TigrayGenocide, the #Eth govt. continues to commit war crimes to win its genocidal war. The most recent offense is bombing Tigray’s capital as a means to terrorize & instill fear among Tigrayans. #StopBombingTigray @G7 @USAID https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/18/africa/ethiopia-tigray-mekelle-airstrikes-intl/index.html

8. Int’l leaders continue to just wait & see what happens before taking meaningful action to stop #TigrayGenocide. Today, like the #TogogaMassacre, Ethiopia bombed civilians on a market day. It’s beyond time to ACT! #StopBombingTigray @JoeBiden @StateDept https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/18/africa/ethiopia-tigray-mekelle-airstrikes-intl/index.html

9. The Ethiopian govt has never won a war through aerial bombardments, yet without any military purpose today, the govt bombed Mekelle, Tigray’s capital. It’s time to stop Abiy! #StopBombingTigray #MekelleUnderAttack @RepDavidValadao @SecBlinken @USAmbUN https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/18/africa/ethiopia-tigray-mekelle-airstrikes-intl/index.html

10. Enough is enough. Act now to stop #TigrayGenocide. Today, innocent Tigrayans were bombed again with no other purpose than to leverage the lives of civilians to win a genocidal war. The Int’l community must act now! @NorwayUN @USUN #StopBombingTigray https://www.reuters.com/world/africa/mekelle-capital-ethiopias-tigray-hit-by-air-strikes-regional-tv-2021-10-18/

11. .@igadsecretariat called Ethiopia a beacon of stability while the Ethiopian govt starves, rapes, bombs, & massacres civilians. Today, Ethiopia bombed Mekelle. How many more innocent people will die on your watch? @DrWorkneh @igadcewarn #StopBombingTigray https://www.ibtimes.com/deadly-air-strikes-hit-capital-ethiopias-tigray-3318820

12. In 11 months, Ethiopia’s govt took countless civilian lives. They bombed 64 people in the #TogogaMassacre. Today, they bombed civilians in Tigray’s capital, Mekelle.
