TPLF is killing innocent Amharas By E. M. Akele

The minority regime in Ethiopia, led by the TPLF has already started responding violently to the peaceful demands of Amharas who demanded the “Wolekite Committee” leaders who have been abducted two weeks before to be released immediately and their identity as Amhara to be recognized according to the constitution.

Following today’s spontaneous support rally at the court where Colonel Demeke Zewdu, one of the Committee members who successfully thwarted his abduction by the TPLF, appeared was violently dispersed by security forces. Two persons identified by their first name as Solomon and Sintayehu were shot dead and many more sustained wounds from bullets, reliable resources indicate.

TPLF since its creation is a narrow ethno-nationalist party that struggles to secede part of Tigray from Ethiopia. In an effort to establish the Tigrian Republic the party in its manifesto of 1967 E.C has declared parts of the current Amhara, Eritrea and Afar regions to be annexed to give the new republic an international border and fertile land to sustain itself. These are the real motives to annex the Wolkite and Tslemt areas of the Amhara people.

Before 1991 TPLF, with the aim to change the demographic composition of these regions, has carried out several untold atrocities against the Amharas who inhabited the areas. In addition to the extrajudicial killing and disappearance and arranged forced marriages of Amhara women with Tigrians, a recent study by human rights activist in the region has exposed the crime that the regime used modern medicines to cause infertility among the Amhara women to reduce demography of the Wolkite natives and the Amhara people in general.

They have also resettled more than a million ex-combatants who are fully armed to control the area under their hegemony. These has created a strong resentments among the Amharas who lost their properties and becomes a second citizen in the land of their ancestors. They are forced to denounce their identity in order to get services provided by the regional government of Tigray. Such gross violation of Human and Democratic rights have inspired the Wolkite people to demand their identity as Amhara should be recognized and be reunited with the Amhara region.They have the mandate from the people to signed a petition to the House of Federation to look in to the matter.

The people of Amhara have staged massive protest to request the Government to peacefully Settle the issue. Despite several attempts to follow all legal means by involving the parliament and House of federations, an institution deals with identity and inter regional border issues, the regime considered the questions raised by the Wolkite Committee as an attempt to destabilize the federation. Such horrendous labeling of protesters as a terrorist act inspired by Eritrea is the regime’s old tactic for externalizing domestic problems. The Wolkite Committee members are a well known and highly respected members of the society that are tasked to present the people’s grievances to the government.

The regime which is fractured by gargantuan corruption and popular discontent and pressures from various ethnic groups have increasingly depended on security and military forces. Such isolation and loss of legitimacy have created a persistent fear in the minority that eventually may lead to civil war.

EPRDF, a coalition of four regional parties is dominated by the TPLF who have created its three surrogates after its own like. The three parties, according to complies from the other coalition members, are run by individuals assigned from TPLF.

    It was since its bush life that TPLF has been killing the Amharas and others who boldly declare that they are Ethiopians.
    In essence, TPLF made very clear what it eventually would like to achieve. They planned basically three things to realize (see its manifesto):
    1. Finishing off all Amharas because Amhara were said to be archaic enemy of Tigrians.
    2. Dismantling the historical, geographical and social integrity of Ethiopia and discarding it forever.
    3. Creating the republic of Greater Tigray after annexing as much land/ resources/ economies as possible and after tactically getting Assab back from Eritrea.
    Basically that was the dream of Italy, UK and some other EU lands since the colonial era.
    Hence, it was primarily UK and USA who procured this genocidal gang and installed/sustained it in power to execute its agenda. The traitor role of TPLF matched very well with the neo-colonial (globalization) agenda of USA and the Westerns in the post cold war era. There you see the motive of USA too.
    Alike the second World war, unless these criminal Western states correct in due time their masked war against Ethiopia/Ethiopians, the very liberation fight of Ethiopians from the traitors and the masked new colonial scramble of UK, USA and other EU states, will move/awaken the Arab World, Africa and beyond. The third world war shall be a reality. This shall primarily finish off the evils and enemies of humanity!

    God s on the side of the truth finally Ethiopia as one will prevail and
    The cancer & parasite TPLF will be forced out by the
    People of Ethiopia. Those who paid the ultimate price
    They’re us and we’re one God bless their soul.
    God Bless Ethiopia & it’s People we’re peace loving
    And don’t wish any harm on anyone!

    People to the 21st century. There’s no time for backward ethnic based
    Conflict that is the dark ages. Today thanks to the Information Age

    The Truth!

    The massive killing should be avoided, the government should bring clear and transparent administration and share of the resources equally to all the ethnics who live in the country Ethiopia does it belong to minority ethnic group but it is nation that hosts a large population, rally should continue until the fare and equallity comes and TPLF should sease the killing of the innocent civilians
