Some concerned Ethiopians and Swedish-Ethiopians residing in the greater Stockholm area would like to share their disgust with the blatant repression by the TPLF/EPRDF regime against followers of the Muslim faith and Christian Orthodox Church in Ethiopia.
The regime’s violation of the sacrosanct monasteries of Waldaba, Ziquala, and others is not only a gross interference in religious affairs of the Ethiopian Orthodox Christian faith and monastic domain but also a disdainful and provocative act by a ruthless repressive regime. The regime’s interference in the affairs of Ethiopian Muslims is not only filled with deceit and treachery, heavy-handed, arrogant and ruthless but also bloody.
In view of the fact that the followers of the two well-established religions in Ethiopia have jointly traversed a long common history, are well aware of their common destiny, and that they together make up the majority of the people in the country, and they have always stood together whenever their national interests are affected, we would like to support them all in their struggle for religious rights NOW. We should express OUR FULL solidarity with them. Their demands are just.
We would also like to call on all peace loving and democratic forces, Human Rights Organizations, and the Media to follow the repression unleashed against both the Muslims and the Christians in Ethiopia, to condemn the atrocities, to document and expose, and to get concerned and involved so as to stop the gross violations of religious and other rights by a ruthless dictatorial regime, propped up by the US and Western Democracies!!
