Stop Ethnic cleansing in Ethiopia
Petition Background (Preamble):
The current regime, with its wrongful and completely unpopular policy of ethnic cleansing, has recently been on a mission of unjustly forcing an entire population of 78,000 in the Southern Region. People are being forced to evacuate and leave their land and property. The affected region constitutes twenty two districts in Benchi Zone, Gurafarda Woreda.
The population has been strongly protesting against EPRDF’s unlawful acts and such atrocities. However, in spite of the legal requests and outcry from the opposition, the Zenawi government has chosen to go ahead with its ill-advised abuse of its authority and use of its military force against good and law abiding citizens.
The Stop Ethnic cleansing in Ethiopia petition to Amensty international,human rights watch,USA, British and western governments was written by MEAD suport Europe, Canada and USA and is in the category Human Rights at GoPetition. Contact author here.
