This includes civilians, journalists and those from opposition parties. #TigrayMassArrest @antonioguterres @JosepBorrellF https://twitter.com/mbachelet/status/1420390083983646725

9. The systematic mass arrest of Tigrayans in Ethiopia is at an alarming rate. Tigrayans are being sent to internment camps. Ethnicity is not a crime.

It’s time for world leaders to act. #TigrayMassArrest @eucopresident @FMCastaldo @czorrinho @pressfreedom https://omnatigray.org/on-the-mass-detainment-of-tigrayans-and-ethnic-discrimination/

7. Jeopardizing the safety of humanitarian workers & keeping aid from reaching Tigray is a gross violation against human rights. This must be addressed by world leaders. #TigrayMassArrest @JuttaUrpilainen @SecYellen @davidmcallister @tomastobe @Mariearenaps https://omnatigray.org/on-the-mass-detainment-of-tigrayans-and-ethnic-discrimination/

9. The mass detainment, ethnic discrimination, and targeting of Tigrayans across Ethiopia is not indicative of a government acting in the best interest of its citizens! #TigrayMassArrest @BaerbelKofler @ecrgroup @AnnLinde @EUAmbUS @antonioguterres https://apnews.com/article/africa-race-and-ethnicity-racial-injustice-b1a97f2569592f499565bfb6e673dc3d

14. The ongoing discrimination of Tigrayans throughout Ethiopia is part of a larger effort of erasure & genocide. It is imperative that the Intl. community call it what it is – #TigrayGenocide. Eritrean, Amhara, & #ETH forces must be held accountable. #TigrayMassArrest @USAmbUN @VP

15. On Thursday 15th July, Kibrom Berhe, of Baytona Political Party was arrested and taken to an unknown location. The @IntlCrimCourt must intervene in light of these egregious human rights offenses. #TigrayMassArrest #TigrayGenocide @article19org @JamesDuddridge

16. The harassment of Tigrayans across Ethiopia is proof of @AbiyAhmedAli’s agenda to subjugate all Tigrayans. Another arbitrary arrest is that of Kibrom Berhe of the Baytona Party – he was arrested on July 15th and taken to an unknown location. #TigrayMassArrest @article19org

#TigrayMassArrest – 3

1. Amid growing anti-Tigrayan propaganda in Ethiopia, Tigrayans throughout the country have been targets of discrimination and violence by the state. #TigrayMassArrest must be condemned and stopped. #TigrayGenocide @UNHumanRights @JACL_National @wienerlibrary @GerrySimpsonHRW

2. .@AbiyAhmedAli labeled Tigrayans as a ‘cancer, a devil & invasive weed that must be uprooted’.

3. The collective punishment of Tigrayans extends beyond the Tigray region. Tigrayans in and around Addis Ababa have had their constitutional rights violated by their own government. Stop #TigrayMassArrest @RepCicilline @RepMcCaul @RepSpanberger @timkaine https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2021/07/ethiopia-end-arbitrary-detentions-of-tigrayans-activists-and-journalists-in-addis-ababa-and-reveal-whereabouts-of-unaccounted-detainees/

4. This campaign of collective punishment and subjugation is a clear violation of international law. End all trade agreements with Ethiopia and Eritrea until #TigrayMassArrest and #TigrayGenocide stop. @POTUS @StateDept @HouseForeign @SenateForeign https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2021/07/ethiopia-end-arbitrary-detentions-of-tigrayans-activists-and-journalists-in-addis-ababa-and-reveal-whereabouts-of-unaccounted-detainees/

5. Since November 2020, thousands of Tigrayans in Ethiopian cities, including Addis Ababa, have been unlawfully detained; their bank accounts frozen, and dismissed from their jobs. The world must stop turning a blind eye. #TigrayMassArrest @EP_President @Europarl_EN @Haavisto

6. As of April 2021, over 300 Tigrayans are being unlawfully detained in an inhumane warehouse just south of Ethiopia’s capital city. We need independent investigations of #TigrayGenocide & #TigrayMassArrest. @FilippoGrandi @USAmbUN @DicarloRosemary @Haavisto @UNReliefChief @hrw

7. .@MSF team members were killed in the Tigray region. As a result, MSF has suspended sending aid in Tigray, further impacting critical aid being delivered. These acts of violence and #TigrayMassArrest must be condemned. @antonioguterres @sanchezcastejon https://www.cbsnews.com/news/united-nations-humanitarian-workers-attacks-warning/

8. .@NobelPrize laureate turned war criminal @AbiyAhmedAli, has weaponized rape and famine against the populace in Tigray; consistent with the mass arbitrary arrests of Tigrayans outside of the region. Australia must speak up and ACT NOW! @tanya_plibersek #TigrayMassArrest

9. Australia is duty-bound to pressure @AbiyAhmedAli’s government to cease mass arbitrary arrests, criminalising Tigrayan citizens outside of the region with no rational motive. ACT NOW! @pmc_gov_au @Birmo @TonySmithMP @SenatorRyan #TigrayMassArrest #TigrayGenocide

10. In the new phase into the #TigrayGenocide, police have arbitrarily detained hundreds of Tigrayans in Addis Ababa, exposed as a “nationwide crackdown on ethnic Tigrayans”. @AlexHawkeMP @davidhurleyHS @JoshFrydenberg #TigrayMassArrest #TigrayGenocide https://www.reuters.com/world/africa/hundreds-tigrayans-detained-ethiopian-capital-recent-weeks-witnesses-say-2021-07-15/

11. .@AbiyAhmedAli is increasingly & deliberately arresting Tigrayans in #ETH simply because of their ethnicity❗️Yet, @luigidimaio & @MarinaSereni continue to merely issue abstract and ineffective statements on #TigrayMassArrest. Why? @EUCouncil @eu_echo https://apnews.com/article/africa-race-and-ethnicity-racial-injustice-b1a97f2569592f499565bfb6e673dc3d

12. Dictator @AbiyAhmedAli intensified his attacks on the press by abducting, beating & robbing local reporters & deporting independent journalists. @corradoformigli @gadlernertweet @zdizoro help your colleagues by condemning #TigrayMassArrest @CPJAfrica https://omnatigray.org/on-the-mass-detainment-of-tigrayans-and-ethnic-discrimination/

13. Nine months of #TigrayGenocide!”Tigrayans in Addis have been arbitrarily arrested & detained without due process in what appears as ethnically motivated detention” cit. @amnesty.Why is Draghi ignoring @AbiyAhmedAli’s #TigrayMassArrest ? @amnestyitalia https://www.amnesty.org/en/get-involved/take-action/end-the-arbitrary-arrests-of-tigrayans/

14. The #ETH government continues to arrest hundreds of Tigrayans simply because of their ethnicity! @ItalyMFA, your abstract statements wont stop #TigrayMassArrest & #TigrayGenocide! ACT NOW! @sebastianocardi @MarinaSereni @luigidimaio @giuseppemistre4 https://reut.rs/3iZe0IY

15. Unlawful arbitrary arrests of Tigrayans continues to take place in Ethiopia. As of today Kibrom Berhe of Baytona Party, was arrested without reason in Addis Ababa. Federal police continue to abuse their power and refuse to follow legal protocol. #TigrayMassArrest @article19org

16. The campaign to continue targeting and harassing Tigrayans across Ethiopia has intensified as invading forces face defeat in Tigray. The arrest of leader of Baytona Pol. Party, Kibrom Berhe, in Addis Ababa on 15th July 2021 is proof of that. #TigrayMassArrest @article19org
