Anti-terrorism law: Another tool for the Genocide in Tigray ( 3 National Political Parties of Tigray)

Press Release from Tigray National Political Parties Forum
Anti-terrorism law: Another tool for the Genocide in Tigray

__________________________________
One of the fundamental principles of the constitution of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE) is sovereignty of the people. Article 8 sub-article 1 of the constitution stipulates that “all sovereign power resides in the nations, nationalities and peoples of Ethiopia”. It adds, in sub-article 3, “their sovereignty shall be expressed through their representatives elected in accordance with this constitution and through their direct democratic participation”.

The people and nation of Tigray are not represented in the House of Peoples’ Representatives, House of Federation and Council of Ministers since Oct 5, 2020, because the term of the elected government has expired. Hence, Tigray national political parties forum, don't believe the current government of Ethiopia has the legitimate mandate to draft and pass laws that have wide-ranging implications on member states.
Against the constitutional rights of the people and nation of Tigray, the self-appointed House of Peoples’ Representatives of the unelected government of Ethiopia, has continued to draft and pass laws that directly affect Tigraians without any regard to the fact that Tigrayans have no representation in the house. Keeping this irresponsible modus-operandi, the "House of Representatives" of the unelected government of Ethiopia has recently passed a new proclamation designating Tigray Peoples Liberation Front (TPLF) and Shene as terrorist groups.

The proclamation that designates TPLF as a terrorist organization is especially worrisome to the Forum of Nationalist Parties of Tigray. It is public knowledge by now that the Ethiopian government and its cronies have been intentionally working for several years on creating a wrong perception that the Tigrian people and TPLF are one and the same. We are extremely worried about the intention of the new proclamation which criminalizes anyone related by idea or action with the designated organizations. We believe that criminalizing TPLF as a terrorist organization will definitely affect adversely many innocent Tigrian nationals.

Tens of thousands of innocent Tigrians are currently languishing in overt and covert detention centres – essentially concentration camps - throughout the country without proper legal process. We believe one of the objectives of the new law is to make a case for those innocent civilians and legitimize the extrajudicial killings, massacres, war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in Tigray that we have been calling to be investigated independently.

Apart from preparing a cover-up for the genocidal crimes the government and its allies have been committing, we strongly suspect the move by the government of Ethiopia is a sign that the perpetrators are ready to take their genocidal acts a step higher to a holocaust against the people of Tigray. In addition, we suspect that this law is intended to legalize the state sponsored looting of Tigrayan property. We, therefore, condemn in the strongest possible terms, the attempt by the Ethiopian government to use the law recklessly to exterminate the people of Tigray.

The Forum of Nationalist Parties of Tigray also believes that the move by the government of Ethiopia to label TPLF and Shene as terrorist organizations blocks peaceful ways resolving the problems in Ethiopia. This law will only repeat past mistakes, rather than solve any of the problems that the country is facing.
It is a clear confirmation of sheer hypocrisy that a government which publicly admitted the main source of terrorism in the country is "itself” and condemned the previous anti-terrorism law has opted to stick to such draconian laws to settle political differences, once again.

We believe the only solution to the multifaceted problem the country is facing is not coercion using various tactics including using the law. Instead we all for an immediate commencement of an all-inclusive political dialogue and respect the right to self determination of the people of nations.

Tigray will prevail!!

Distinction Without a Difference. Fundamentally these three parties are the same, actually, their politics has been all along to prove they are "more Catholic than the Pope "in other words to prove they are more weyane than weyanes themselves. As long as they keep clean their hand from Weyane shenanigans they have nothing to fear. If they are entertaining to be a conduit for Weyane conspiracy and the evidence supports that then they should face justice. The Ethiopian people can not fall victim to any chameleon because it is tagged with another name.

Please be kind and save us and yourself from your regular pathological lies and paranoid propaganda barrages simply because the terrorism law got passed simply because the tplf became too a wild outlaw, killing and displacing Ethiopians of all regions, all religions and all occupational categories for the sheer purpose of coming back to power again through violence wishing to implement the second round of dictatorship and minority genocide activities again for the second time.

The so called bogus national parties of Tigray are only the self multiplication of tplf just to give the illusion of plurality that is NOT THERE AT ALL. It is like the three Sellases' who are one and three at the same time. :lol:

Please try to come back to your senses and join the healing and the peace building government of Dr.Abiyy who is bent on making Mamma Ethiopia, Mamma Eritrea and Mamma Africa to become the shining proverbial GARDEN OF EDEN no question asked. Otherwise you will keep remembering your terrorist past, feel the heat about your terrorist present as well as see the nightmare about your terrorist future. Why go through all of these hell when you have the opportunity to join the peace doves and their development wagons so as to become greater than your little self to become healthy and wealthy beings. Or else, some amaras may take you back to the stone ages instead of taking you forwards to the proverbial GARDEN OF EDEN. It is your own choice, so please choose wisely instead of singing the same old boring medieval songs and be taken back to the medieval era.

"Abiy’s government has made many excuses to justify its attack on Tigrai. Some excuses were laughable if not sad, others were plain foolish. But with the die cast, Abiy and his ally Isaias Afwerki were determined to finish off the TPLF and they started the war.

Ethiopia had changed its currency and they delegated a banker to deliver the new bills and collect the old from Tigrai—he said the airplane loaded with the currency had just landed at Mekelle airport when shooting started. If that was the start of the war, how was he to deliver the currency?

But there was another excuse for starting the war. Abiy claimed the TPLF forces attacked the Northern command (stationed in Tigrai) while they were asleep and naked–“raqotachewn eyyallu, tegnitew eyyallu….” I think that is an insult to any self-respecting commander; it’s unsoldierly to be caught sleeping– no advance guards and no precautions in a tense situation. But Abiy had more to say. He said he flew to Eritrea with some generals to regroup his troops that fled to Eritrea and prepare for a counterattack. He compensated the shame by giving wild animal prefixes to his generals: the Lion General so-and-so, the Tiger General so-and-so, etc."

Are you saying that your high ranking TPLF official "lied" on live TV when he made the following statement of admission, for TPLF forces to have carried out preemptive attack against the Ethiopian Northern Command forces?
“Israel made surprise attacks against these forces and demobilized the enemy troops to successfully defend itself. It is a similar strategy that was used now.” ~ Sekuture Getachew, head of Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) Public and Foreign Relations.

Please be kind and stop from telling distorted story just to fit it to your usual high flying fairy tales. It has been said and explained over and over again from the source, saying that just before the tplf's attack on the Defense Forces, tplf's leader, Dr. Debretsion telephoned to Dr. Abiy, talking long, negotiating directly about reconciliation and working together which both Dr.Abiy and Dr.Debretsion accepted, thereby forming common ground and common views.

On the basis of such direct discussion and mutual agreement/understanding which Dr.Abiy trusted beyond any reasonable doubt both now agreed that the said amount of money be shipped to the Tigray region for normal ciculation. But unfortunately, Dr.Debretsion have been dishonest all along because he just wanted to fool the PM even to start with his dishonest fake so called fake agreement so that the tplf may get lots of money and then immediately launch that shameful attack on the same day on the armed forces, means killing two birds with a single stone, meaning use trickery and rob the money through dishonest fake agreement and launch attacks at the same time.

After all, tplf needed money even for launching the attacks, managing the attacks, financing the escape routs and funding all types of expected and unexpected expenses. Tplf was desperate in making dishonest and fake reconciliation bogus agreement to get the new currency because its own mountains of old currency have gone out of circulation or faced circulation problems due to its traceability back to the source of ownership among others. That the defense forces were being massacred while asleep was first told by top tplf Cadres(Sekuture,etc.) themselves who were saying that the simultaneous attack on the defense forces which will last only some 45 minutes will soon come to decide the fate of Ethiopia as the tplf will soon converge on Addis Ababa.

To your complete surprise and Sekuture and Co.'s amazement the defense forces quickly turned the heat away from themselves and applied it back at the tplf, no question asked. That is why you came here to lie and tell us all the little sweet lies since every thing went absolutely wrong for the tplf as to received unexpected defeat. Next time you better fight on the side of Ethiopians for sure victory otherwise you will face the same fate, that is to say, defeat.

Sekuture is saying that the preemptive strike is a response to imminent attack by the three sides.The definition of imminent is "about to happen, ready to take place." If you want to know what was imminent, please watch the below 1 min clip.
