The War on Tigray is also a War on Truth: Parsing Ethiopian Government and pro-Government Social Media Campaigns

The War on Tigray has been characterized by the Ethiopian government’s deceitful attempts to control the narrative. Throughout the war, the government has co-opted the entire state apparatus and ramped up its attempt to impose hegemonic control on the narrative by launching campaigns of disinformation, intimidation, demonization and gaslighting.

The Betrayal on the People of Tigray: Overall Consequences and a Beacon of Hope

The government still maintains that the brutal war against Tigray is a “law enforcement operation” to bring those behind the alleged attack to the court. If that is the case, why were the commandos sent to the borders in Tigray some four days in advance? Why were they encircling Tigray all-round from Dansha to Wolkayit and Weldya and other directions? Why was the South Command secretly told to go to an unknown place three days earlier? Why did they beg Sudan to close its border with Tigray, as admitted to by the spokesperson of the Ethiopian Foreign Minister, Ambassador Dinna Mufti? Why, three days before, was it told to loyal members of another ethnic group that the Tigrayans were not going to take part in the operation? Why did they exclude Tigrayan members of ENDF from the operation? Why was there an unusual military and logistical operation in the Bahir Dar a few days before the war started? Why were Ethiopian commandos sent to Eritrea?

The following excerpt debunks one of his biggest and most frequently told lies: That the war started because TPLF attacked the Northern Command. The truth is that Abiy and his mentor, Isaias, the architect of the war, had long planned it.

Debunking the Myth of an ‘Attack on the North Command’ as a Factor that Led to the Ongoing Genocidal War on Tigray

Now it is clear that this whole thing about the attack on the Northern command is justan Anti-Tigray alliance,which was in the making for the last three decades and strategically organized in the last three years. This was realized by the pseudo ‘peace pact’ with Eritrea, which only wanted to sandwich Tigray between two mortal enemies (Eritrea and Amhara) and then finish it off.

Sexual Violence as a Weapon of War in Tigray: A Call to Action

We ask the silence breakers and those who championed the #MeToo movement to help the victims. No one knows about the power of solidarity and speaking up in volumes more than they do. The #MeToo movement showed us that, when many speak up against the offenders, others are encouraged to speak up.
