SOS: Emergency on the continued Genocide on Amhara.

The genocidal war unleashed on the Amhara population by the Oromo leader, Abiy Ahmed Ali has been misconstrued as a war of “law enforcement” for a while. Now is the time to inform the world the truth about the War on Amhara. The open truth, the Oromumma elite led by Abiy Ahmed and Shimelis Abdissa hid from the international community must be boldly told to the civilized governments and humanitarian institutions.

Ever since the migration of Oromo tribe, regardless of the opportunities offered them to integrate with the rest of Ethiopian citizens, they never made the effort to live in peace with the indigenous established Ethiopians. Instead, they chose to undermine the sovereignty and national integrity of the nation. The track they chose have been to fabricate anti- Amhara, anti-Ethiopia propaganda for decades, infusing false historical narratives that led to unlimited hatred for several decades. As a result of the Oromo elites extremist political Stance, they have come to execute the longstanding strategy of carving out a country out of Ethiopia. This is tantamount to dismantle Ethiopia and unprecedently destabilize the region and beyond the Horn of Africa.

To make their strategy practical, the Oromos organized themselves for years until they got the chance to grab the state power. That opportunity realized to them when the whole Ethiopians fall to the shenanigan of Abiy Ahemed in 2018. Of all the citizens the Amhara people came out en masse to support Abiy regardless of his ethnic identity. For many, time lately revealed the true intents of the Oromos. They determined that the Amhara people will stand a staunch resistance against the Oromo cessation towards creating unstable region. To counter their assumed Amhara resistance, they collectively decided to first disarm Amhara, private individuals, the traditionally armed Fano group, and the regional special force. That plan was exercised on the ground under the guise of “Law enforcement”. The only people forced to totally disarm was Amhara. Other regional states special forces including the huge force of the Oromos were intact to date. The grand plan was to eliminate the “unarmed ” Amhara people. The sham law enforcement was to hoodwink the world community, to disguise and give it a semblance of “legality” to commit limitless genocide on Amhara.

This SOS is a call to the world community to come to grips of the real purpose of the War on Amhara: Genocide!

For over a year, the regular defense force and recruited militias were sent to the Amhara region to mercilessly massacre civilians without discrimination, church worshippers, etc. As it is clear by now Abiy’s armed force is in tatters, incapable of winning the Amhara Fano. Abiy is now desperate. While he proclaims to be peace lover to the world, In the last few days an estimated 120,000 newly “trained” soldiers including under ages are transported to the Amhara region by busses. Another batch of soldiers are flown to the Amhara region using the Ethiopian Airlines, violating ICAO’s laws (using civil airplane for military purposes).

As if the Genocide is not enough, Instructed by Abiy Ahmed, his protegee Shimelis Abdisa declared a nonstop genocide on Amhara. His speech in Oromo language to select Oromos at Illili hotel is posted below. The Declaration of Shimelis Abdissa in his words in Oromo tongue. https://t.me/Habzema21/2302

The script was translated from oromo to Amharic as an exhibit. In Amharic:

“ገና አንድ ሚሊዮን ተጨማሪ ኦሮሞ እናስታጥቃለን”  ( “We will yet train and arm a million oromos to destroy

Amhara) ነፍጠኛን እንዲቀጣ አንድ ሚሊዮን ቄሮና ቀሬን አስታጥቀን ወደ አባይ ማዶ እንልካለን: አሁን ወደ ጎጃምና ጎንደር የምንልከው ቄሮ እንደ 2008ቱ ዱላና ዲንጋይ የያዘ ሳይሆን ዘመናዊ መሳሪያን የታጠቀ ነው: አሁን የጦር ጀቷና ድሮንም የቄሮ ናት:: ነፍጠኛ ትናንት ወሎን ፊንፊኔንና አዳማን የኔ አደርጋለሁ ብሎ ይመኝ ነበር: አሁን ግን እባካችሁ ባህር ዳርንና ጎንደርን አስተርፉልኝ ሁኗል እለቅሶው:: ደብረብርሀንማ ድሮም የእሱ እንደማይሆን ያውቃል ቢመኝም አያገኘውም:: አሁን እናንተ በርትታችሁ አበርቱን የውስጥ የቤት ስራችሁን ስሩልን: ትምክህተኛውን ለእኛ ተውልን የፖለቲካ ተሳትፎው ከኛንጋቶና የም ብሄረሰብ ያነሰ ሚና እስከማይኖረው አድርገን እንቀጣዋለን: በአገልግሎት ዘርፍም ልክ እንደ ቻይናና የውጭ ዜጋ በክፍያ ነው ምናስተናግደው : እመኑን ድጋሜ ኦሮሞን እንዳይንቅ እንዲያከብርና እንዲፈራ አድርገን ሰብረነዋል ገናም እንሰብረዋለን::

Abiy Ahmed and the Oromo Elite have no intent to stop Amhara Genocide. He has reversed his rhetoric of terminating the emergency declaration. He is marching forward in his criminal engagement. The gruesome genocide is declared to continue. It is now unfolding in Ethiopia’s Amhara people. Ethiopia is a country of nearly 130 million people and any major war such as the current genocidal war will bring about regional political and economic instability. Left unchecked by international powers, the genocide perpetrated by Abiy and Shimeles are more than likely to have far-reaching and disastrous consequences for East Africa, (the Horn of Africa), and the whole of Africa. The ramifications of the genocide staged by Abiy led Oromos seriously brings humanitarian and immigration crisis and fosters the spread of Terrorism.

The drums of war have been sounded! Mercenary soldiers are being transported and unloaded on Amhara Region. Abiy’s and Shimeles’ mercenaries are known for massacring civilians, Rape young girls and women, and plunder are their other hallmarks! We ask the world community especially the powers addressed above to address and investigate the ongoing Amhara Genocide. The Bulwark of the stability of The Horn of Africa was for years sustained for Amhara took the brunt of destabilizers in the region. The regional stability is in danger because of Abiy Ahmed and the elites who are enabling him.

Justice to the Amhara Genocide Victims, Freedom to the oppressed!
Democracy to Peace loving Ethiopian Citizens
