Petition to NATO: Please put pressure on Turkey & President Erdogan to stop supplying drones and other armaments to the genocidal government of Ethiopia.

Your Excellencies

The Security and Justice for Tigrayans (SJT) is a 501(c(3)) non-profit organization that advocates for the security and justice of Tigrayans. SJT recognizes and appreciates NATO’s decisive and constructive roles in maintaining peace and stability not only in NATO member countries but also at the global level.

SJT also acknowledges the contribution of the United States and many other NATO member countries such as Ireland, UK, France, Germany, Estonia for all that they have been attempting to do through the EU and the UN system. We are also grateful for the condemning statements and limited sanctions put forward by the US and EU countries.

Notwithstanding all the positive responses to the cause of the people of Tigray, SJT has been repeatedly pleading the international community including NATO, the UN, G-7-member countries, EU, AU, and the U.S. to use their power to cease the war waged by joint enemy forces to exterminate the people of Tigray which has been going on for the past 10 months in Tigray, Ethiopia. SJT feels that the UN has not done enough in responding to and ending the humanitarian plight of the people of Tigray. We are deeply disconcerted and disheartened to see some member countries of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) failing or opposing to measures of concrete actions under the pretext that the war is Ethiopia’s internal affairs. These countries have disregarded credible reports of genocide through acts of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and ethnic cleansing.

The repeated calls to PM Abiy Ahmed and his government for an all-inclusive political dialogue and impartial investigation of the indiscriminate war crimes by the majority of the NATO member countries, G7 leaders, EU, U.S., and the United Nations have landed on deaf ears. The Eritrean government is still occupying parts of Tigray despite the promises to withdraw made to the international community. The leaders of Ethiopia and Eritrea have a complete disregard for civil, democratic, and inclusive political engagements and dialogue
