Press Release - Tigrayan nonprofits and community-based organizations

On the Ethiopian Federal Government’s Illegitimate Temporary Ceasefire and Framing of this Action as a Humanitarian Gesture

The temporary ceasefire declared by the Ethiopian federal government is illegitimate, and as Tigrayan community-based organizations and nonprofits within the global diaspora, we condemn Ethiopia for framing this action as a humanitarian gesture. The democratically elected and constitutionally mandated government of Tigray now resumes control over significant parts of Tigray including the capital city of Mekelle from June 28, 2021. Having faced big military defeats and resounding international condemnation, the Ethiopian federal government was forced to retreat and declare a temporary ceasefire without making any active effort to stop the violence.
