Is part of Ethiopia about to break away?
Quote
Leaders of Ethiopia's Tigray region are stepping up their feud with the federal government, led by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. They say they'll no longer recognise the Addis Ababa administration after the Electoral Commission delayed polls due in August because of Coronavirus. Tigray went ahead with its local elections anyway, a move Prime Minister Ahmed described as 'illegal'. It's raised concern Tigray's leaders are laying the groundwork for the creation of a breakaway state.

The Battle for Ethiopia | People and Power
Quote
When Ethiopia’s prime minister, Abiy Ahmed, came to power in 2018, he promised a new era of democratic reforms and an end to years of autocracy.

Political prisoners were freed, opposition parties were allowed to operate, and the new prime minister even won a Nobel Prize for securing peace with neighbouring Eritrea after decades of an uneasy armistice.

But since then, long-standing ethnic divisions have made the future of this complex country more uncertain.

Is Ethiopia on the way to civil war? | Inside Story
Quote
Tigray's leaders have dominated Ethiopia's ruling coalition of ethnically based parties for decades. But after Abiy Ahmed became prime minister, they refused to join his single party alliance. They've also resisted his sweeping reforms. And in September, they went ahead with local elections, defying Abiy's decision to suspend polls. He now says his patience has run out with Tigray. He's ordered a military operation in the region after accusing the TPLF of attacking federal troops. It's feared the feud could lead to the break up of Ethiopia. Just what are the causes of tension there?

Sudan braces for up to 200,000 fleeing Ethiopia fighting
Quote
No sign of a lull in fighting that has included multiple air raids by federal forces and hundreds of people reported dead on each side.
Quote
As many as 200,000 refugees could pour into Sudan while fleeing the deadly conflict in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region, officials say, as more than 8,000 people have already crossed the border.

Long lines have appeared outside bread shops in the Tigray region, and supply-laden trucks are stranded at its borders, the United Nations humanitarian chief in the country said.

“We want to have humanitarian access as soon as possible,” Sajjad Mohammad Sajid said. “Fuel and food are needed urgently.”

Up to two million people in Tigray have a “very, very difficult time”, he said late on Tuesday, including hundreds of thousands of displaced people.

Hundreds have died in air raids and fighting since the conflict erupted a week ago, according to reports. Fears are growing that Ethiopia, a nation of 110 million, could slide into a civil war.
Under growing pressure, at least 8,000 Ethiopian refugees have crossed the now-closed border into Sudan, the state-run SUNA news agency reported. The agency, citing unidentified officials, said more than 200,000 Ethiopians were expected to cross into Sudan in the coming days.

Rockets ‘fired from Ethiopia’s Tigray region’ hit Eritrea capital
Quote
At least three rockets have been fired from Ethiopia into neighbouring Eritrea, potentially adding a regional dimension to the conflict between Ethiopian government forces and leaders in the Tigray region on the 11th day of fighting. Diplomats in the region say two of the rockets hit the main airport in Eritrea's capital, Asmara. The Tigrayan People's Liberation Front had earlier threatened Eritrea. Eritrea and Ethiopia signed a peace deal two years ago, but Asmara is not on good terms with the Tigrayan leadership.

Ethiopian PM again rejects dialogue with Tigray leaders
Quote
Ethiopia's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has once again ruled out dialogue with leaders in the northern Tigray region to end fighting. But in a meeting with African Union envoys, Abiy said he would speak with regional leaders that were "operating legally," as he put it. Meanwhile, shipments of humanitarian aid are being ramped up in Sudan to help tens of thousands who've fled the fighting. #Ethiopia #Tigray #Africa

'Why are we being ignored' plead the hungry in Ethiopia's Afar
...
the regional authorities told the displaced to return home, promising help.

Abdu and his family headed back to Erebti, where they are still waiting for aid.

"We answered the call and here we are with nothing," he said.

- 'What have we done wrong?' -

The residents of Erebti take shelter from the searing heat under plastic sheets stretched under trees on the edge of a dry riverbed that lies below the road.
...
Across all of northern Ethiopia -- Tigray, Afar and Amhara -- more than 13 million people are in need of food aid, according to the United Nations.

As I kept trying to warn:

under current conditions, staying put and waiting for food aid to arrive is a self-imposed death sentence. Migration to the EU is your only hope! And the less hungry you are when you start your journey, the better your chances of making it!

It's the rightist who doing Cultural Marxism who always broke their struggle to gain justice... I don't know why people still seeing democracy as a "pillar of justice".... From where we can find justice on democracy? From the toilet maybe?

Banning the rightist is the best way to achieve our goals more quickly. Not educating them with meekness and flabbiness.
