Stand with Tigray

This powerful film, made by young Tigrayans, tells the story of victims of the Axum massacre. It was made at a time when the world was still in denial about the massacres taking place in Tigray. Since then reports by Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have verified what people on the ground were experiencing, the brutal, wholesale massacre of the people of Tigray. It's called "Stand With Tigray."


Background to the conflict in Tigray

This report takes a look at some of the background to the conflict that engulfed Tigray last November


Tigray - death of a people

Tigray is the scene of the most acute humanitarian crisis of our time. Rape and famine are being used as weapons of war against a civilians who are being bombarded by the combined military forces of Ethiopia and Eritrea with support from Amhara militia. Over 60,000 Tigrayan people have fled to Sudan, almost as many have been killed, 10,500 women have been raped, and 4.5 million people are on the brink of famine. All this has happened since the Ethiopian government led by Abiy Ahmed marched his army into Tigray in November 2020.Meanwhile the world has stood by and watched. We are calling on people of good will and conscience from around the world to press for:

  • Immediate and full humanitarian access to the whole of Tigray
  • An inclusive national dialogue to reach a sustainable solution
  • Immediate withdrawal of all foreign forces from Tigray
  • An independent investigation into alleged war crimes
