February 8, 2021 Ethiopia: No End to War in Devastated Tigray
“It feels strange to write about a humanitarian crisis in this day and age with barely any pictures, videos or witness testimonies from the ground. But that is what the situation in Ethiopia’s Tigray region has come to. Since the conflict between the federal government, led by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, and the regional government’s ruling party, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), began in November 2020, access to the region has been extremely limited. Internet and telephone connectivity was cut off as soon as the fighting began, disconnecting about 5 million people. Months later, the internet remains down and telephone communication has only been restored in a few main towns. Journalists and human rights monitors are still denied entry and cannot report to the world the full scale of the violence which has left at least hundreds of people dead and more than 470,000 displaced, according to the UN.” - Vanessa Tsehaye, Amnesty International

Africa World Press and Red Sea Press. He is widely respected among
scholars and activists in Africa and around the world as one of the
giants of African and African American publishing. Yet his own keen
insights on Africa´s past and present, particularly on Eritrea and
Ethiopia, are hardly to be found in print or on-line.
