Tsilal—Civil Society of Western Tigray Calls for Justice on Third Anniversary of Maykadra Massacre

In a statement released on  Friday, Tsilal—Civil Society of Western Tigray commemorated the third anniversary of the Maykadra- massacre, following the onset of the genocidal war in Tigray on November 4, 2020.

The civil society organization expressed solidarity with the resilient people of Maykadra and the broader Tigrayan community, recounting the tragic events that unfolded in the small town.

The statement highlights involvement of Amhara special forces, Fano, and Amhara militia groups in door-to-door operations, resulting in the loss of hundreds of lives and widespread violence against ethnic Tigrayans.

Tsilal calls for the reevaluation and withdrawal of the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission’s report, issued on November 24, 2020, and ask an official apology to the victims of Maykadra.

The civil society organization appeals to the Ethiopian federal government for an impartial and independent investigation into the Maykadra massacre.

Statement also implored the government to grant unrestricted access to international organizations, human rights defenders, and journalists for transparent visits to Maykadra, facilitating a comprehensive understanding of the situation.
