Twitter Campaign – Support United States Senate Resolution

Senate resolution – 1

1. With 20% access to Tigray aid agencies have uncovered evidence of several massacres and mass executions of civilians. What more will the world discover after a thorough, independent investigation? Support the resolution. #TigrayGenocide @RepBera

2. An effective Senate resolution is critical to ensure an end to the atrocities inflicted on the people of Tigray. @RepKarenBass we urge you & your constituents to do EVERYTHING in your power to protect the people of Tigray. #TigrayGenocide @RepBera @RepSaraJacobs @DarrellIssa

3. Millions of people are starving, tens of thousands have fled to Sudan as water, food, electricity, and telecommunications have been weaponized against its people. Support the new resolution. @RepGregoryMeeks@RepCicilline @GerryConnolly #TigrayGenocide

4. We ask that you stand by your words & do everything in your power to ensure that ethnic based hostilities end in Tigray. The people have suffered for far too long. #TigrayGenocide @BenCardinforMD @ChrisCoonsCMUNC @timkaine @ChrisVanHollen @SenatorRisch

5. .@SenatorCardin @SenatorRisch introduced a resolution encouraging a peaceful end to war in Ethiopia. However, it escalated to a “systematic ethnic cleansing of Tigray”. We urge you @RonWyden @MarkWarner to support the new resolution. #TigrayGenocide

6. A Mai Kadra survivor pleads to @AJENews ‘Tell the world we are dying!’ With all the reports of rape, ethnic profiling, & killings; we must ACT. This war is destabilizing the Horn. #TigrayGenocide @RepKarenBass @YoungKimCA @timkaine @SenateForeign

7. To @RepKarenBass you said you’re prepared to condemn the injustices in Tigray. People are being punished for exercising a constitutional right to vote. This is a threat to democracy! #TigrayGenocide @RepBera @RepSaraJacobs @DarrellIssa @YoungKimCA

8. Currently in Tigray, extrajudicial murder, rape & looting against the people of Tigray has become normalized. We are calling for senators to support a resolution calling for independent investigations. #TigrayGenocide @SenMarkey @JeffMerkley @CoryBooker @SenBrianSchatz

9. Calling US reps to demand an independent investigation on crimes committed by @AbiyAhmedAli & Eritrean forces. How can we trust @_AfricanUnion when they won’t even condemn crimes against humanity? @SenatorLeahy @SenatorDurbin @Ilhan #TigrayGenocide

10. Harrowing reports implicate Ethiopian & Eritrean forces of war crimes against civilians in Tigray. Senators must rally together with a non partisan resolution demanding independent investigations & cessation of hostilities. #TigrayGenocide @BernieSanders @HouseForeign @RonWyden

11. It’s awfully inhumane that in the 21st century @AbiyAhmedAli invited foreign forces to invade one of its regions; used weaponized starvation & SGBV crimes to break down the spirit of the Tigrayan people. These hostilities must end. #TigrayGenocide @RepKarenBass @DarrellIssa

12. There shouldn’t be any excuse for war crimes and crimes against humanity in 2021. The world knows better. The @HouseForeign must push for a resolution that includes solid actions. #TigrayGenocide @RepKarenBass @RepGregoryMeeks @marcorubio @SenBooker

13. Have you signed the petition? Tigray needs an effective bi-partisan US Senate resolution calling for: 

????cessation of hostilities

????protection of human rights

????unfettered humanitarian access

????independent investigation of atrocities


14. The Senate resolution is a clear sign that Tigray needs independent investigations. The House must now pass a resolution that will bring lasting change. #TigrayGenocide @RepKarenBass @RepBera @BernieSanders @SenatorLeahy @SenatorDurbin @BernieSanders

4. If left to their own devices, @AbiyAhmedAli’s regime will continue to weave a web of lies surrounding the violent subjugation of the people of Tigray. We cannot allow them to hide their crimes. Demand transparency. @Ilhan @RepKarenBass #TigrayGenocide

5. Citizens of Tigray lined up at 6 am on Sept 8 to exercise their right to vote & now they are being brutally punished. A US House resolution must condemn ALL atrocities including threats to democracy. #TigrayGenocide @IlhanMN @RepKarenBass @HouseForeign

Senate resolution – 3

2. ‘They were sobbing silently, a dozen petrified women,’ seeking medical help. We must hold ourselves accountable to condemn SGBV in war. The House must take these crimes seriously. #TigrayGenocide @RepKarenBass @RepSaraJacobs @RepGregoryMeeks @YoungKimCA

3. “One woman was held captive for over 10 days, raped by 23 Eritrean soldiers, then left on the side of the road. Surgeons had to remove stones & nails that had been inserted inside her genitals.” #TigrayGenocide @JeffMerkley @CoryBooker @BernieSanders

4. Sign the Petition To Congress: Support United States Senate Resolution #TigrayGenocide

5. After 4 long months of war crimes and crimes against humanity in the #TigrayGenocide, the House must support a bi-partisan resolution calling to end all hostilities, open humanitarian corridors, and conduct independent investigations. @CoryBooker @SenatorLeahy @SenatorDurbin

6. A threat to humanity anywhere is a threat to humanity everywhere. The Intl. community must stand against the #TigrayGenocide & act to end it immediately. The US Senate can be extremely influential in leading. @BernieSanders @SenJackyRosen @SenBobCasey

7. With extrajudicial killings, weaponized rape, & starvation, the #TigrayGenocide cannot be denied as one of the worst humanitarian crises in recent history. The @HouseForeign must act immediately by introducing a solid resolution. @RepTedLieu @RepJimCosta

12. It’s been more than 4 months of severe food shortages or none at all, no clean water, & no humanitarian needs for Tigray all while facing massacre, rape, looting and destruction of everything they depend on for survival. Enough is enough. #TigrayGenocide @RepCicilline @Ilhan
