#TigrayCantWait – October 1st – October 01, 2021

#TigrayCantWait Pt. 1

1. The Abiy administration has imposed a deadly siege on Tigray, blocking the delivery of desperately needed food, non-food and medical supplies into the region. We need action TODAY to end this deadly siege! #TigrayCantWait @JosepBorrellF @antonioguterres https://www.bbc.com/news/58681797

2. The complete suspension of services like banking, transportation & communication is severely obstructing humanitarian responses to the famine in Tigray. We call for the immediate restoration of all services! @irishmissionun @EstoniaUN @LindaT_G #TigrayCantWait #TigrayGenocide

3. .@UN agencies have stated that 100 trucks of supplies need to enter Tigray every day. Since July, only 466 trucks have entered Tigray, less than 10% of the supplies required. Lift the siege on Tigray. @UN ACT NOW! @franceonu @NorwayUN #TigrayCantWait https://www.bbc.com/news/58681797

4. In Tigray
•6.8 million are in need of emergency food aid
•900,000 are in famine
•1.8 million are on the brink of famine
•100,000 children are at risk of death from starvation.
Immediate action is required to save millions @UN @LindaT_G #TigrayCantWait #TigrayGenocide

5. .@UNOCHA has made clear that the lack of fuel, as well as drivers’ fears for their security are major impediments to aid delivery. Ethiopia must immediately provide unhindered and safe access to humanitarian orgs. @SecBlinken @HouseForeign #TigrayCantWait https://www.bbc.com/news/58681797

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/

7. The siege on Tigray means the population has been cut off from electricity, banking, transportation, communication, food aid, medicine, fuel & cash supplies. Millions are at risk of death without immediate intervention. @StateDept @USAID #TigrayCantWait https://www.msn.com/en-sg/news/world/silent-killing-starvation-stalks-ethiopia-s-tigray/ar-AAOJuHD

8. “The UN estimates that 200,000 litres of fuel are needed each week, and says that since 12 July, only 300,000 litres have reached Tigray.” The Ethiopian govt must lift the siege on Tigray immediately. @UN @VietNam_UN @SenateForeign #TigrayCantWait https://www.bbc.com/news/58681797

9. Banks have remained closed. Telecommunication has been blocked. Fuel, water, medicine, & electricity have been cut off & aid has been hindered from reaching starving Tigrayans. Enough is enough! @UN Act Now. #TigrayCantWait @GermanyUN @UNGeneva @UNOSAPG https://www.npr.org/2021/09/20/1038858345/i-just-cry-dying-of-hunger-in-ethiopias-blockaded-tigray-region

10. “People’s skin color was beginning to change due to hunger; they looked emaciated with protruding skeletal bones,”..”If no urgent solution is found, we will lose many people due to hunger.” the aid group wrote. @POTUS – please take action. #TigrayCantWait https://www.npr.org/2021/09/20/1038858345/i-just-cry-dying-of-hunger-in-ethiopias-blockaded-tigray-region

#TigrayCantWait Pt. 2

1. The international community must do everything in its power to end the suffering in Tigray. The imposed siege is only exacerbating the manufactured famine. Children are starving. #TigrayCantWait @JoeBiden please act now. #TigrayGenocide @StateDept https://apnews.com/article/africa-united-nations-only-on-ap-famine-kenya-ef9fe79cc0cf35917fd190b6e9bd0f46

2. Tigray is in a complete siege as medication & emergency food stocks run out. Families of patients are standing by helplessly, having to watch their loved ones die of starvation. @UN ACT NOW! @KenyaMissionUN @Niger_ONU @PmTunisia @SVG_UN #TigrayCantWait https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/9/23/tigray-mothers-share-shocking-accounts-of-dire-famine-conditions

3. Children are intentionally being starved in Tigray while the region remains under siege. @POTUS – it’s critical that you take action before it’s too late. All telecommunications, internet & electricity must be restored. #TigrayCantWait @StateDeptPM @WFP https://apnews.com/article/africa-ethiopia-abiy-ahmed-09aee651e187b40365c5e377bd90ccb1

4. The Ethiopian govt has consistently shown that it is committing a genocide on the people of Tigray. From weaponized rape and starvation, massacres, and humantarian aid blockades. Now, the expulsion of @UN officials. When will the world act? @USAmbUN 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. The siege imposed on Tigray is silently killing hundreds daily. #TigrayCantWait @EstoniaUN @USUN https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/ethiopia-kicks-out-7-united-nations-officials-amid-pressure-deadly-n1280461

6. Ethiopia has blocked aid for months & in a time where Tigray is facing famine, it has expelled key @UN officials. UNSC’s continuous hesitation & ineffective handling of aid blockade has resulted in Tigray famine. #TigrayCantWait @EUatUN @StateDept @MexOnu https://apnews.com/article/africa-united-nations-only-on-ap-famine-kenya-ef9fe79cc0cf35917fd190b6e9bd0f46

7. The expulsion of UN officials is a clear message that Ethiopia will continue to break int’l law knowing it will face no consequences at the hands of UNSC.@UN @StateDept @EU_Commission @USUNSpox must swiftly respond with economic sanctions. #TigrayCantWait https://www.pbs.org/newshour/world/ethiopia-kicks-out-7-united-nations-officials-amid-pressure-on-blockade

8. “So people have been eating roots and flowers and plants instead of a normal steady meal,” he said. “The lack of food will mean that people will start to die.” Tigrayans are dying of a man-made famine. @UN Act Now. #TigrayCantWait @ItalyUN_NY @UnKenya https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/ethiopia-crisis-stain-our-conscience-u-n-says-thousands-face-n1280299

9. It’s been 11 months of weaponized rape & starvation amidst the ongoing #TigrayGenocide enacted by the Ethiopian regime. The @UN Security Council must take concrete actions to save lives! #TigrayCantWait @irishmissionun @UKUN_NewYork @USUN @unwomenchief https://www.msn.com/en-sg/news/world/silent-killing-starvation-stalks-ethiopia-s-tigray/ar-AAOJuHD

10. 1.8 mill Tigrayans face famine under a blockade. The latest expulsion of UN workers from Ethiopia should signal to the intl comm that Abiy Ahmed is hellbent on continuing the #TigrayGenocide. End the impunity & act! #TigrayCantWait @paytonknopf @LindaT_G https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2021/09/30/ethiopia-tigray-united-nations-famine/

11. The Ethiopian regime is impeding the delivery of food aid & medical supplies from entering Tigray. The international community must act now to save the lives of millions impacted by Abiy Ahmed’s engineered starvation! #TigrayCantWait #TigrayGenocide @PowerUSAID @JosepBorrellF

12. 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

#TigrayCantWait Pt. 3

1. Amid the man-made famine, the Ethiopian govt has imposed a total siege of Tigray. Millions will be at risk of starvation. Basic services need to be restored immediately. @UN must ACT NOW! #TigrayCantWait #TigrayGenocide @NRC_Norway @VietNam_UN @LindaT_G https://www.pbs.org/newshour/world/ethiopia-kicks-out-7-united-nations-officials-amid-pressure-on-blockade

2. The idle Int’l community has emboldened the Ethiopian govt to completely cut-off Tigray as 900K+ people starve. The expulsion of @UN officials at this critical time requires immediate action against Ethiopia! #TigrayCantWait @VP @POTUS @USUN @ChrisCoons https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2021/09/30/ethiopia-tigray-united-nations-famine/

3. “In every district of the more than 20 where one aid group works, residents have starved to death.” Ethiopia is starving Tigray by imposing a blockade. ACT NOW before millions perish. #TigrayCantWait #TigrayGenocide @EstoniaUN @VietNam_UN @Niger_ONU https://www.npr.org/2021/09/20/1038858345/i-just-cry-dying-of-hunger-in-ethiopias-blockaded-tigray-region

4. It is the duty of the international community to intervene when a genocide is taking place. It is your Responsibility to Protect (R2P). Millions will die if you refuse to act today. #TigrayCantWait #CallItAGenocide @UN_HRC @KenyaMissionUN @Niger_ONU https://apnews.com/article/ethiopia-tigray-minority-ethnic-cleansing-sudan-world-news-842741eebf9bf0984946619c0fc15023

5. “Forced starvation is the latest chapter in a conflict where ethnic Tigrayans have been massacred, gang-raped and expelled.” The Int’l community MUST save millions of children from starvation!#TigrayCantWait #TigrayGenocide @JakeSullivan46 @AmbassadorRice https://apnews.com/article/africa-united-nations-only-on-ap-famine-kenya-ef9fe79cc0cf35917fd190b6e9bd0f46

6. “Detention and killing of Tigrayans bears the hallmarks of genocide as defined by international law.” The man-made famine is just one of the many atrocities @AbiyAhmedAli is committing to wipeout Tigrayans! #CallItAGenocide #TigrayCantWait @SecBlinken https://www.cnn.com/2021/09/05/africa/ethiopia-tigray-humera-sudan-bodies-cmd-intl/index.html

7. .@UN called it a “de facto aid blockade” but has barely done anything to avert the famine. When will global leaders step in to relieve human suffering? Children are dying. Ethiopia & Eritrea must be sanctioned. #TigrayCantWait @KenyaMissionUN @USAmbUN pic.twitter.com/XBH5E7Hh2p

8. How much longer will Ethiopia & Eritrea be enabled by the @UN to break international law? Appointed leaders must exercise their responsibility to protect civilians and uphold key values. #CallItAGenocide #TigrayCantWait @UnderSecStateP @UnderSecPD https://www.un.org/en/chronicle/article/responsibility-protect
