#TigrayCantWait Pt. 4

#TigrayCantWait – October 1st

#TigrayCantWait Pt. 1

6. The expulsion of 7 @UNEthiopia officials shows that the Abiy Ahmed admin refuses to abide by Int’l law. Donor states must take decisive action to pressure the Ethiopian & Eritrean govts to end the deadly siege. @SecBlinken @StateDept #TigrayCantWait https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2021/09/30/ethiopia-tigray-united-nations-famine/

5. With Ethiopia kicking out @UN officials, the UNSC should take action. Children are dying, missing essential vaccinations, mothers can’t feed their babies.

Although @antonioguterres was ‘shocked’ by the news of Ethiopia’s decision to expel senior UN officials, this obviously aligns with @AbiyAhmedAli’s ongoing genocide + coverup. @UN must recognize the genocidal campaign waged against Tigray! #TigrayCantWait https://news.yahoo.com/ethiopia-expels-seven-senior-un-145926931.html

3. Time is running out for the 900K+ people living in conditions of famine. It’s up to @antonioguterres, @JosepBorrellF, @SecBlinken, & @UN|SC to finally prioritize those starving.

5. Indiscriminate targeting of Tigrayans in Ethiopia is escalating putting millions of Tigrayans living outside of Tigray in imminent danger. An immediately negotiated ceasefire with elected gov’t of Tigray is crucial. #TigrayGenocide @Europarl_EN @thinkper https://addisstandard.com/news-analysis-fresh-wave-of-arbitrary-arrest-of-tigrayans-in-addis-abeba-rights-commission-says-it-is-monitoring-the-situation-fed-police-deny-arrests-target-tigrayans/

7. Mass detention & profiling of Tigrayans in #AddisAbaba & other cities in Ethiopia. Tigrayans are being dehumanized & called names simply because of their identity. End human right abuses of Tigrayans.#TigrayGenocide@SenBooker @RepKarenBass @HouseForeign @Ilhan @ChrisCoons

8. Currently, over 30 Tigrayan families, including children are facing deportation from Sweden to Ethiopia where they face death, torture, starvation, and rape. Protect Tigrayan asylum seekers. @socialdemokrat @johanssonmorgan #TigrayGenocide #TigrayCantWait https://bit.ly/35HMGZf

10. As Ethiopia continues to block ground & air transportation of humanitarian aid, @WFP @USAID @UNOCHA must work closely with the government of Tigray to deliver gravely needed aid. #TigrayCantWait #TigrayGenocide @EU_Commission @StateDept @UN https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/bridge-key-to-delivering-aid-to-ethiopias-tigray-destroyed/2021/07/01/8a47e6c6-da6d-11eb-8c87-ad6f27918c78_story.html

11. Restoration of basic services in Tigray such as electricity, telecom, internet, banking, air travel, & transportation is a must. Millions of Tigrayans are living in the dark without basic services. #TigrayGenocide #TigrayCantWait @EP_President@Europarl_EN @EP_Development

12. A ceasefire does not equate to peace. Ethiopia’s claim of ceasefire is placing Tigray under a siege. Immediate humanitarian aid is needed to 5.2+ million ppl of whom 400k are in famine condition. @WFP @USAID must air drop food in Tigray. #TigrayCantWait @StateDept @UNOCHA

13. Deporting Tigrayan asylum seekers is a death sentence. @Haavisto stated “when I met the Ethiopian Leadership in February they used this kind of language, that they are going to destroy the Tigrayans.” @johanssonmorgan @Aftonbladet @dagensnyheter #TigrayGenocide

14. Since Ethiopia started the genocidal war on Tigray, Tigrayans living in Addis Ababa have had to deal with waves of mass arrests by authorities simply for their ethnicity. Each wave being worst than the last. #TigrayGenocide #TigrayCantWait @EUCouncil https://www.reuters.com/article/us-ethiopia-conflict-tigrayans-idUSKBN2CO0VF

7. #TigrayGenocide extends beyond the borders of Tigray. Civilians residing in Ethiopia’s capital are intentionally being targeted and sent to prisons by the masses. @AbiyAhmedAli and his govt must be stopped. @SecBlinken @davidmcallister @tomastobe @POTUS https://tinyurl.com/2etp9f9c

#TigrayCantWait – 4

1. The massacres & rapes of Tigrayans in the last 8 months shows us that @AbiyAhmedAli’s claims to target TPLF only, was an orchestrated sham much like his election. #TigrayGenocide is an intentional attack on all Tigrayans. @EUCouncil @UNOSAPG @unicefchief https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/4/21/a-tigrayan-womb-should-never-give-birth-rape-in-ethiopia-tigray

4. Ethiopia has the duty to commit to steps outlined by the @UN|SC, including the withdrawal of both Eritrean & Amhara forces from Tigray; humanitarian access & hold perpetrators of #TigrayGenocide accountable. #TigrayCantWait @SenatorMenendez @RepKarenBass https://tinyurl.com/4s9fkyjm

3. #TigrayCantWait as Tigrayans continue to have their bank accounts frozen, assets confiscated, & lives shattered. Ethiopia continues to threaten the livelihood of millions of Tigrayans. @AbiyAhmedAli must be condemned. #TigrayGenocide @eucopresident @EmmanuelMacron @luigidimaio

8. Where are the so-called civilized countries, and why are they not speaking out to condemn the #TigrayGenocide? The ethnic cleansing of Tigrayans throughout Ethiopia; the gang rapes, the massacres – are they not worthy of your care? #TigrayCantWait @JustinTrudeau @luigidimaio

9. For the past 8 months, we have asked for an end to the communication blackout in Tigray. Access to phone lines, internet & power must be completely restored. Can it be any more obvious that @AbiyAhmedAli is trying to hide the #TigrayGenocide? @SenateForeign @EU_Commission @UN

1. An anti-farming campaign is in effect in Tigray. Invading troops are prohibiting the transportation of seeds needed for the current harvest. We need a humanitarian intervention before millions die. #TigrayCantWait #StopStarvingTigray @USAmbUN @USNATO https://news.yahoo.com/anti-farming-campaign-underway-tigray-113539985.html

2. A man-made famine is looming in Tigray because invading forces have not left. Farmers cannot cultivate their land, and now children are starving.Tigray deserves your immediate action, today. #TigrayCantWait #StopStarvingTigray @KenyaMissionUN @Niger_ONU https://apnews.com/article/united-nations-africa-ethiopia-famine-business-242450fa4a93719809688f83ecb9b2ac

3. We have been pleading with the @UN Security Council to not ignore weaponized starvation in Tigray. It is critical that leaders help get the agriculture sector back on track, before a man-made famine takes countless lives. #TigrayCantWait @FAODG @ASteiner https://www.nationalgeographic.com/culture/article/ethiopia-grave-humanitarian-crisis-unfolding-never-saw-hell-before-now-have

4. The @G7 was designed to help resolve global issues. How are you looking to resolve the Intl. pleas to #StopStarvingTigray? The famine of the 80s should have taught leaders not to act when it’s too late. @JoeBiden @CharlesMichel @amerkel57 @sugawitter pic.twitter.com/Q1Uc8yGVBW

5. The people of Tigray depend heavily  on farming for their livelihood. The intentional looting & destruction of livestock; burning of homes, crops, & farming equipment has left them starving. Concern is appreciated but ACTION is what’s needed. 

@UNReliefChief @JanezLenarcic

6. The @UN is failing Tigray, so we call on @NATO for a humanitarian intervention to stop the #TigrayGenocide. The weaponization of food will cause millions to perish. We need a confirmed withdrawal of Eritrean troops. @jensstoltenberg #TigrayCantWait
