Stop Soldiers From Terrorizing and Massacring Civilians

Target: António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations

Goal: Investigate reports of rampant slaughter, rape, and other grave human rights abuses in Ethiopia.

Nearly a dozen unarmed men were allegedly executed in Ethiopia, the latest in a deluge of potential war crimes plaguing the country. The reported mass murder took place in the battle-ravaged Tigray region, according to an investigation and video evidence from Amnesty International. In the video, men in Ethiopian army garb were apparently seen shooting the defenseless victims.

Since Tigray became ground zero for unrest in October, over 150 massacres are believed to have taken place. The death toll from these killings is estimated to be in the thousands, with victims ranging in age from infancy to 90-plus years old. Since the national government launched its offensive on regional opposition, civilians have become the overwhelming collateral damage. The atrocities committed by military ranks allegedly include sexual assaults and severe beatings as well as organized executions. Vulnerable communities have also lost critical infrastructure such as schools and hospitals to looting, vandalism, and arson.

Sign the petition below to urge international action in bringing justice and security to countless human beings in a desperate struggle for survival.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Guterres,

The Ethiopian prime minister may dismiss videos allegedly showing in gruesome detail the slaughter of innocent men, but the global community cannot and should not ignore this vital call-to-action. For months, citizens in Tigray have lost their homes, their safety, their dignity, and in at least 2,000 reported cases—their lives. If military officials and soldiers bear any responsibility for these apparent atrocities, they must be held accountable.

The government has expressed a willingness to allow international investigations. Please pursue this matter with urgency and help bring the terror to an end.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
