Full-scale genocide of the Amharas of Ethiopia and Western media silence

by Achamyeleh Tamiru
In the ongoing massacre in Gondar, in two days alone, the Tigrian Fascist regime mercenaries have murdered innocent Amharas, killing at least 30 people. ALL of the victims are innocent men, women and children from the towns Debretabor, Gayint, Azezo and Gondar, Ethiopia’s North-Western region largest city.

The apparent genocide committed has tragically become an almost hourly occurrence during the last three weeks of relentless war declared on Gondar by a Western-backed Tigrian regime of Ethiopia. As I speak the regime mercenaries called Agazi security forces are firing live ammunitions on Amhara peaceful and unarmed civilians who demanded identity and geographic restoration of Wolkait-Tegede -Tselemt-Humera that are forcefully annexed into the TPLF’s Tigray region since TPLF’s coming to power in1991. The Amharas of Ethiopia are also demanding an end of the era of full-scale genocide and mass murder of the Amharas that have been continued for the last 25 years.
Surely, this should be front page news, with CNN International, the BBC News, Al Jazeera English, FRANCE 24, and Bloomberg among other big Western and Arab media outlets, splashing it as their top story. However, there has been no news coverage of the tragic events unfolding in Gondar and other towns and cities of Ethiopia. Aside from some brief, vague reports of a generalized “protest”, there has been a wall of silence as to how the Western-backed Ethiopian regime is pulverizing Amhara civilians and creating the red-terror. Of course we the Amharas of Ethiopia know that the international media silence is a deliberate blackout by western and Arab medias. For us it is clear that the lenses of CNN, the BBC, Al Jazeera France 24 ad Bloomberg don’t see the massacres committed everyday in Ethiopia on the Amhara people by the Tigrian People Liberation Front, a Wester backed racial regime.
As I speak what’s happening in Gondar and other areas of Ethiopia cannot be described as anything less than full-scale genocide, where innocent civilians are being slaughtered by American-supplied ammunition and weapons because of who they are.
At the moment more than 20 million Ethiopians are starved to death. Significant number of the starved to death are Amharas. Since last June famine has been looming NOT because of drought but because of mass state corruption, poor governance, criminalization of politics, violation of citizens’ rights, failed economics policies of the regime and because farmers have not been able to tend to crops. Since the Amharas resistance started three weeks ago, the regime has stopped supplying food aid to the starved to death Amharas in retaliation of the on going resistance of Amharas in Gondar. The systematic starvation of starved to death Amharas by denying them food, water and medical aid because their co-ethnic are resisting genocide in the other parts of the country adds to the barbarity. Coupled with the firing of live ammunitions on the Amharas because of their ethnicity, this is full-scale genocide by any legal definition of the word.
Despite the horror and complicity of Western governments in the full-scale genocide, the Western news media avoid providing informative reports on the carnage on the Amharas. When some of the medias do give occasional brief reports, they routinely distort the nature of the genocide as if it is a small flash protest against issues that makes us unhappy.
We Ethiopians believe that United States and European countries who backed the savage Ethiopian regime, a killing machine, are heavily involved in genocidal massacres of Amharas in Ethiopia. In other words, what is happening in Ethiopia on the Amharas is truly a heinous crime and full-scale genocide against ethnic Amharas committed by Western governments. What is unfolding in Gondar is an unspeakable crime against humanity. And that is why the Western media will not dare talk about it. The Western media are obliged to ignore, obfuscate and distort the shocking truth of what their governments are committing in Ethiopia. This makes the Western media just as complicit in the appalling criminality.
I have one last call to the western news medias. You the western news medias, if you are reporting the full-scale genocide on the Amharas of Ethiopia committed by the TPLF regime of Ethiopia, please don’t tell us about your vague reports of a generalized protest by the Amharas to exacerbate our disappointment and add insult to injury. If you got the courage to say few words about the full-scale genocide on the Amharas of Ethiopia committed by the TPLF, please tell your governments at least to stay ClEAN from TPLF’s final sins.

Note: Amharas are struggling a fascist colonizer called Tigray People’s Liberation Front that joined bushes four decades ago drafting extinction plans to eliminate the Amhara race from the Earth’s surface who are deemed to be “obstacles” to the formation of The great republic of Tigray. TPLF’s plan, as it is clearly stated in its 1976’s manifesto and the now Ethiopian’s constitution, is to form the great republic of Tigray on the tombs of the Amharas.
So, we the Amharas of Ethiopia are not protesting seeking a reform for something that make us unhappy. Protest is a reformist publicity stunt for something that makes a group unhappy. We are resisting full-scale genocide declared on us by TPLF. Our resistance is for elemental attacks from TPLF and our struggle is for survival; a matter of life and death not of a reform of the existing system. As I said above, at the moment the Amharas are in the hands of a ruthless Tigrian colonizer that indiscriminately kills innocent men, women and children. So, we are not ‪#‎Amaraprotest‬ but ‪#‎AmharaResistance‬, ‪#‎የአማራ_ተጋድሎ‬ in Amharic.

  1. It is Western countries led by the US that have been nurturing the criminal thugs who have been ruing our life and continue to massacre our innocent people. So, we should be surprised why they are doing nothing to muzzle the wild ass ruling our country. Forget about the international community (read USA), we can defeat the crime infested alms addict Weyane Western slaves. Our people are doing just that. But we need to support our people back home in any way we can from here in the diaspora. Their fight is OUR fight. Let us not be bystanders and just write and talk. The talk MUST be combined with the walk. If we could not be there to fight the bandits of Tigre, let’s contribute financial support. And you know the rest. Death to Weyane and its supporters. Ethiopia first!

  3. Hi guys,
    Why should the West muddle in Ethiopia after a stark reminder that its interventions have led to disaster after disaster in a number of Middle Eastern and African countries lately? Syria and Libya are examples.
    I don’t think the West as block came together to take position on intervention in Syria and Libya. Spontanious peoples’ uprisings began in the countries and governments attacked the people rather than address demands. When it became evident that the governments do not want to forgo power, the West gave a hand to the people. With the support of the West, the governments were toppled.
    The irony is without any thought as to what will happen once the governments are toppled, the people were caught off guard by the new development: a country without a government. The case in point is Libya has.
    Both in Libya nad Syria and many others of dubbed as the Spring revolution the overthrow of governments failed to result in democracy and peace. Except in Tunisia, the outcome of the revolutuin is unparalled human misery.
    Given this lesson the West learned, do you expect it to intervene in Ethiopia? I don’t think so. Not at least military intervention unless there is a total breakdown of law and order in the country . In that situation, they might jump from Djibouti and reach Addis in a day ot two. But we are far from that kind of intervation now.
    If you ask me my personal opinion on the issue, I will say “better if they do not muddle the way they did in some of the Middle East countries”. This is not to say they should be out of the picture entirely; that’s not possible because of their interests. But, they can tell the government to hear the people and find peaceful means to the uprising before it reaches a complete crisis stage. They can also talk to the inflamatory opposition in the diasora and their media outlets to show some responsibility in their reporting.
    The good news is perhaps the West is already working behind the scene.
    Addis Standard published a report under the title “Ethiopia braces for massive protest rally called by online Oromo protest activists.” Though the paper carried nothing new as far as calls for démonstrations is concerned, it had a paragraph suggesting that the government is looking for a peaceful means to resolve the problem.
    The paragraph reads as follows:
    “In a related news, reliable sources told Addis Standard that the government in Ethiopia is planning to call a meeting at the end of this month with opposition party representatives “both inside and outside the county” to be held at the African Union (AU) aimed at discussing the political impasse the country seems to be in. Titled “Peace Building and National Consensus”, the meeting is requested by the government and is expected to be facilitated by the AU, Addis standard learned. However our attempts to get official confirmation were to no avail.”
    There seems to be a contradiction regarding sources to this information. The “reliable sources” are not mentioned and an “official confirmation” is not available. At least, AU could have have said a word or two on such major issue. The uprising which seems to have reached Addis Abeba, the seat of AU and many international organizations should be a concern for the AU itself and many others. It appears, the government is also losing face as a host of AU, several embassies and many other organizations. In any case, if the news is not a wishful thing, it is a step in the right direction.

    But I wonder if the opposition both in and out of the country are the only and the right entities for the government to sit with and talk “peace and concensus”. Since the uprising is popular, some kind of direct representation of the people themselves in the talks might be necessary.
    Furthermore, the government should go public about its “peace and concensus” plan. It cannot release statments intended to trivialize and undermine the demands of the people and even attack and arrest them while it says it wants “peace and concensus” talks. As a good will gesture, it will have to reign on police and army actions. In the absence of such geste, the country is headed to collapse.
    On balance, the responsibility to create and nurture a climate of “peace and concensus” in the country falls on the government. If it is serious about it as the news above suggested, the country might be saved.
    I think there are signs that the West is working for a peaceful resolution of the uprising in the country. Ethiopia is a big country with huge population which they cannot afford to lost to terrorists from Somalia or Eritrea.
    Let’s hope for the bast.
