Ethiopia: TPLF/EPRDF Crimes Against Humanity in Oromia Escalate After the State Of Emergency is Declared

HRLHA’s Appeal to the International Community

October 30, 2016

Crimes against humanity in the Oromo nation have escalated after the State of Emergency was declared on October 8, 2016 by the TPLF.  The Tigray People’s Liberation Front blocked  all means of  communication in order to hide the  heinous crimes it perpetrated all over the Oromo and Amhara regions. According to the unconfirmed information  obtained in Oromia regional state, over 1000 Oromos have been killed and about 40,000 Oromos detained in different places from October 8 – 30, 2016. The HRLHA  has received  a partial list of those killed and detained in the South Oromia Zone in West and Arsi Zones. According to our informants, from October 8 – 30, 2016 , 248 have been killed and 3706 were detained. Most of these were youths.

International attention on Ethiopia has been in a continuous ebb and flow since the outbreak of the mass movement that began in November 2015 in Oromia Regional State. Lethal force has been used against the protestors. The Human Rights League of the Horn of Africa and other international human rights agencies such as Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have repeatedly reminded the International community to stop the vicious human rights abuses in Ethiopia. However the world community has abstained from taking concrete action.

The HRLHA again calls upon the international community to act collectively in a timely and decisive manner – through the UN Security Council and in accordance with the UN charter on a case-by – case basis to stop the Ethiopian government’s assaults on its own citizens before it is too late.The International community has a responsibility to use appropriate diplomatic,humanitarian and other means to protect populations from crimes. If a State is manifestly failing to protect its population, the international community must be prepared to take collective action to protect populations,in accordance with the UN Charter.

    Appeal to international community ( international criminals )… really..!!!?
    My beloved Oromia don’t waste yours time and energy
    Abyssinia couldn’t exist at all without the help of international criminals

    The only option for oppressed nations in fake Abyssinia is to take arms.. no other salution my brothers
    Take arms and finish wayane settelers and their backers…
    Take back your beautiful and rich farmland which TPLF minority regime solt to settelers from halland
    Nb Wayane think that Hollanders will keep them in power for ever in exchange of looting Oromia resources
    Take arms , take arms , take arms Goddess willing u win inshaALLAAH
    May ALLAAH bless Oromia…. Amin
