The Montreal Institute of Genocide and Human Rights Studies (MIGS), in collaboration with United Tegaru Canada, is hosting a virtual discussion to shine light on the ongoing humanitarian crisis occurring in northern Ethiopia's Tigray Region.
The event will be livestreamed on MIGS' Facebook and YouTube pages.
Fighting between the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) and the federal government led by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, began on November 4, 2021. Since then, the conflict has resulted in the displacement of 2 million people, the slaughter of approximately 2,000 Tigrayans, and has left 4 million people in desperate need of humanitarian aid. Eyewitnesses and journalists, whose presence has been severely restricted in the Tigray region by the Ethiopian government, have recounted countless atrocities including mass murder of Tigrayans of all ages, widespread rape of Tigrayan women, destruction of Tigrayan schools and homes, fields and livestock, and widespread hunger in a region already extremely vulnerable to famine.
