My name is <NAME> and I would like my representative to condemn in the strongest terms the attacks against the Amhara people by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali in Ethiopia. Prime Minister Abiy’s security forces have arrested over 10,000 journalists, civic leaders, activists, and civilians in Addis Ababa alone. Since April 2nd, Amharas across the Amhara Region began peaceful protests and civil disobedience against the apartheid regime and in response, security forces have opened fire on peaceful protesters killing civilians in various towns. In addition to this, in Oromia Region, the security forces of Prime Minister Abiy and Regional President Shimelis Abdisa and the Oromo Liberation Army have killed thousands of Amhara civilians and displaced over 1-million from the Oromia Region to the Amhara Region. I am asking my representative to issue a statement condemning Prime Minister Abiy, Regional President Shimelis Abdisa, and the Oromo Liberation Army, and demand the government hold perpetrators of atrocities accountable, and stand on the side of innocent victims.
Please call EVERYDAY and share the script with family and friends!!!!
