TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE MASSACRE IN GAMBELLA
On December 13, we observe the tenth anniversary of the massacre of Anuaks in Gambella by the forces of the repressive regime than headed by the late Meles Zenawi. The systematic rampage and murder of Anuaks was ordered by Meles himself with the agreement and prompting of Abaye Tsehaye (still a top official) and Dr. Barnabas. The on the place culprits had also been identified and several calls were made to bring all the culprits to justice.
To no avail. Those who rush to accuse African leaders as criminals against humanity have kept their silence when it comes to the rgime in Addis Abeba that has over the years been accused of massacres at Water, Adebabaye Iyesus, Water, Arba Gugu, Eastern Wellega, Sidamo, the Ogaden, etc. The cruel exigencies of real politick defend the repressive and criminal regime that gets a cover up and is not at all pressurized or forced to respect the human rights of the people. The international bodies have instead chosen to give awards to the victims, a meaningless gesture that puts no burden or pressure on the regime in place that has continued to violate the right of the people.
SOCEPP once again sends its condolences to the families of the massacred Anuaks. It is to be noted that Gambella’s fertile land national treasure forests have been given cheaply to an Indian form and many people have been displaced and an ecological disaster introduced.
Those responsible for the massacre of Anuaks should be detained and tried.
INJUSTICE ANYWHERE IS INJUSTICE EVERYWHERE
