As agreed and signed at Pretoria and Nairobi, Ethiopia agreed to pull out its forces from Tigray and also force Eritrea to do so, after the guns have been silenced. This is not done and might not be done, at all. The future is open.
The Tigrean government and its disciplined generals are patiently waiting for the implementation of the Pretoria and Nairobi agreement, while the Ethiopian government is implicitly approving of the genocide which is being committed as I write these words and appeal to the UN, the US, the European parliament, the African Union to wake up and be mindful about the human situation in Tigray.
The attention which is being bestowed on Ukraine must be bestowed on Tigray, as I argued in The Futility of comparing Tragedies in Ukraine and Tigray. Our effort to act must be heightened lest the Tigrean government is forced is to take the Eritrean Regime by Force, as I suggested in The Eritrean Dictator: Isais must Go.
I am renewing that call to be taken on by the Tigrean youth on fire, as I also argued recently In a Call for Tigrean youth.
For now the guns are silenced in some areas and not others. Eritrea continues its barbarism unbated in the areas which it has entered; Shire, Adwa and Axum, and Abiy’s Ethiopia continues to close its eyes, on the top of not providing basic services, in Tigray, except for a few insignificant trucks showing up sporadically.
This situation must be attended to and the negotiators must be mindful and conduct independent investigation and inform themselves.
The masses of Tigreans in the areas occupied by Eritrea need a voice which speaks for them. They are dying in hundreds and the world does not know about them. The civilians who are being massacred need a voice. Please join me in being a voice for this population.
I appeal to the friends of Tigray to open their eyes and be the voice of the ongoing victims of genocide.
My next piece will provide an outline of what Tigreans should do within the framework of the Joint Agreement, to their advantage.
