Unfettered and Unrestricted Humanitarian Access
For over 200 days Tigray has been a battleground with multiple armies attacking food supply, hospital infrastructure and civilians. There are currently 900,000 Tigrayans living in famine with millions more at risk. Road blockages and government action have led to limited humanitarian access, exacerbating an already critical crisis. In recent days, trucks transporting humanitarian aid have been targeted and aid workers found dead in Tigray. International law prohibits the starvation of a civilian population as a method of war and further dictates that those who are wounded or sick must receive access to medical care with the least possible delay.
- The United Nations, United States, and all countries globally must demand unrestricted and immediate access for all humanitarian aid organizations, including but not limited to those providing food and medical care
- The United Nations, United States, and all countries globally must request the removal of Ethiopian, Eritreans and Amhara soldiers from access roads between Tigray and Sudan, Djibouti and all other bordering regions into Tigray. Furthermore, the safe passage of humanitarian aid workers and supply trucks must be reinforced
- The United Nations, United States, and all countries globally should request that airdrops be allowed throughout Tigray to provide humanitarian aid, including food and medical supplies
