Humera Massacre – #HumeraMassacre – August 03, 2021


1. New reports of genocide in the Tigrayan town of Humera are emerging. #ETH’s genocidal war on Tigray is pure terrorism on the average Tigrayan citizen. Why is the world allowing this to continue? #HumeraMassacre #TigrayGenocide @SenateForeign @StateDept @Refugees @UN_HRC @hrw

2. Authorities have discovered dozens of bodies of those people fleeing #ETH’s #TigrayGenocide. Some with gunshot wounds or their hands bound. Children were not even spared. #HumeraMassacre @GerrySimpsonHRW @EUatUN @cnni @eu_echo

3. Tigrayans from Humera fled into Sudan when the #TigrayGenocide began, making it to @Refugees camps where they still face hardships. Many lost their lives. #HumeraMassacre is an example of what Tigrayans still face in #ETH. @FilippoGrandi @RaoufMazou

4. Reports of renewed massacres in the town of Humera in Tigray. When will appointed leaders exercise their responsibility to protect civilians? This is a genocide. #HumeraMassacre #TigrayGenocide @LindaT_G @SecBlinken @AmbMKimani @KellyTClements @UNGeneva

5. There are extremely horrific genocidal crimes being inflicted on Tigrayans in the town of Humera. The world must pay attention to what is going in Tigray. This is a genocide. #HumeraMassacre @SenateForeign @JanezLenarcic @eu_echo @HRC @PrevGenocide

6. “We told the kids to hide but the soldiers didn’t spare them. They killed four. Another one was shot while he was in the water. ” This genocide on Tigrayans must stop. #HumeraMassacre #TigrayGenocide @UNHumanRights @UNOCHA @CDU_CSU_EP @eucopresident

7. Tigrayans are being tortured and killed in horrific ways in Humera. When will world leaders take concrete action to prove they’re really concerned about Tigray? #HumeraMassacre #TigrayGenocide @POTUS @SecYellen @KenyaMissionUN @Niger_ONU @PmTunisia

8. The war crimes of #TigrayGenocide keep mounting. When will Tigrayans simply trying to exist in their ancestral lands be respected as the human beings that they are? Another #HumeraMassacre cannot be tolerated by world leaders! @JosepBorrellF @USAmbUN

9. Tigrayan bodies were recovered in the Setit River, also known as the Tekeze. Some with gunshot wounds, arms still tied. Many badly burned. This is a Genocide, and world leaders need to take action today! #HumeraMassacre @antonioguterres @IntlCrimCourt

10. “At least 30 corpses have washed up on the Sudanese banks of a river that abuts Ethiopia’s northern region of Tigray.” Canada must act NOW. @JustinTrudeau @rpatricktravers @Rob_Oliphant @MarcGarneau @CanadaFP #HumeraMassacre #TigrayGenocide

#HumeraMassacre Pt. 2

1. Local Sudanese officials & residents have reported retrieving 20 bodies from the Setit river in the last three days alone. Under the cover of a siege, Tigrayans are being tortured and massacred in western Tigray. #HumeraMassacre #TigrayGenocide @UN_HRC

2.  Tigrayans are being ethnically cleansed, brutalized, and massacred while the international community fails to act. When will Canada act to end the #TigrayGenocide? #HumeraMassacre @JustinTrudeau @rpatricktravers @Rob_Oliphant @MarcGarneau @CanadaFP

3. Per @LaetitiaBader “the response by the @UN & influential govts. has been slow and mixed.” As we learn of the horrors of the #HumeraMassacre, it is vital that the Intl. community move beyond condemnation & take concrete action to end the #TigrayGenocide. @mbachelet @MexOnu

4. “The Amhara militia are going door to door. If they know you are a Tigrayan they kill or arrest you.” Refugees from Humera have been warning about the #HumeraMassacre. Canada must act NOW to end the #TigrayGenocide @JustinTrudeau @MarcGarneau @CanadaFP

5. Intelligence sources in the region have confirmed the upsurge of ethnic violence in western Tigray-particularly in & around Humera. Bodies of Tigrayan victims of the #HumeraMassacre are still being pulled out of the River Sittet. @eu_echo @Refugees

6. Using a communication & internet blackout as a cover, the Ethiopian govt. and Amhara regional govt. are committing ethnic cleansing & genocide in western Tigray, in the dark. This must stop! #HumeraMassacre @JustinTrudeau @MarcGarneau @CanadaFP @UNHumanRightsEU @UNHCRCanada

7. “Some of the bodies had been shot, others were tied up by their hands but without other visible injuries.” What more does Canada need to take action to stop Genocide like the #HumeraMassacre? #TigrayGenocide @JustinTrudeau @MarcGarneau @CanadaFP

8. “I saw a lot of barbaric things. Some had been struck by an axe” – a doctor in Sudan, describing the bodies of the victims of the #HumeraMassacre. Action is needed NOW to prevent further atrocities. @JustinTrudeau @MarcGarneau @CanadaFP @USUN @EstoniaUN

9. “I suspect there are more bodies on the river.” The horrifying images of victims of the #HumeraMassacre recovered from the River Sittet are the tip of the iceberg. Canada must act now. #TigrayGenocide @JustinTrudeau @MarcGarneau @CanadaFP @CanadaUN

10. “I kept it to show the world,”…”This is genocide..Their aim is to erase Tigray,” a man says as he describes his new Amhara ID card, excluding all traces of Tigray. Authorities have continuously tortured residents. #HumeraMassacre @UNOSAPG @PrevGenocide

#HumeraMassacre Pt. 3

1. How much longer will #ETH be enabled to carry out a Genocide? The atrocities have been mounting for 9 months. Appointed leaders must exercise their responsibility to protect civilians. @AmbMKimani @mbachelet @antonioguterres @UN_HRC #HumeraMassacre

2. “We see daily one or two dead bodies with their hands tied behind their backs floating on the river Tekeze.” What is happening in #ETH is a genocide, and it needs to be recognized as such. #TigrayGenocide #HumeraMassacre @GCR2P @Haavisto @eu_echo @UN

3. “When we arrived at Tekeze, there was nothing for crossing the river & soldiers were shooting at us. Those who could swim jumped into the river. Those unable to swim remained. They might be shot & dead.” #HumeraMassacre has happened again! #ETH @UN @hrw

4. The @UN Security Council must exercise their power to protect civilians. A genocide is STILL taking place in #ETH on your watch. What exactly have you done to stop it? @antonioguterres @KenyaMissionUN @USAmbUN @Niger_ONU @VietNam_UN #HumeraMassacre

5. Amhara militia, ENDF & Eritrean troops must withdraw from Tigray today. Horrific atrocities like #HumeraMassacre are still taking place because of their presence. Int’l leaders must stop tolerating such barbarism. @SenBooker @SecBlinken @IntlCrimCourt

6. It is up to world leaders to exercise the power appointed to them. Weaponized rape & the blockade of food into Tigray by the #ETH Govt can no longer be tolerated. The world is watching! @POTUS @eucopresident @EmmanuelMacron @antonioguterres @SecBlinken

7. ETH & Eritrean forces must withdraw from western Tigray. They are committing horrific atrocities to eliminate the Tigrayan population. This is a Genocide and can no longer be taken lightly by world leaders. #HumeraMassacre @UKUN_NewYork @franceonu

8. Dr. Tefera, a surgeon who escaped from the #ETH border town of Humera, told Reuters he buried 10 bodies over the past 6 days in Sudan, and was told another 28 had been recovered, including 7 on Monday. @irishmissionun @NorwayUN @MexOnu #HumeraMassacre

9. Tigrayans are being left for dead, floating in the river. Tied up, shot to death, and many badly burned. The world must not turn away from these heinous atrocities. #HumeraMassacre @HouseofCommons @EU_Commission @Europarl_EN @EUCouncil

10. There is insurmountable evidence that a Genocide is taking place in Tigray. How many more bodies must be discovered in churches, homes, and floating in rivers before global leaders take real action? @USAmbUN @SecYellen @UNReliefChief #HumeraMassacre
