According to Ethiopian Satellite Television- ESAT breaking news, as at of May 22,2016, over Eight-thousand people gathered at North-west part of Ethiopia, Amhara Administrative region, Welqayt-Qabti (ወልቃይት ቃብቲያ). Welqayt-Qabti is very near to North Sudan and Eritrea plus shares common border with Tigray administrative region of Ethiopia.
It is exactly one week, since the local farmers of Welqayt's 'wereda' has declared on their refusal to accept any TPLF authority domination on the region. Four-thousand people agreed on this declaration. The declaration gives strong warning to TPLF officials not to come to their ‘wereda’ for any type of administrative purpose.
Today, according to ESAT breaking news release, over Eight thousand people have again gathered in Welqayt-Qabti wereda to strength their previous declaration of self administration. On the other hand, the TPLF special army was trying to cease them not to go to the meeting. But strong resist back the army to the nearest mountainous area.
An indigenous people of Welqayt area residing in USA, Europe and Australia have exposed a number of documented evidences on TPLF’s massacred over Ten-thousands of residents for the past 25 years. TPLF strategic interest in the region is to show its ethnocentric boost of Tigrigna speaker people over indigenous Amhara ethnicity. This was practiced through both force-full settlment of Tigrigna language speakers on the fertile land of Welqait and obliging indigenous Amhara people to undermine their pre-existed Amhara culture including their language, Amharic.
The latest news indicate that TPLF regime is sending more troops to the mentioned conflict area. Many fear, as there is no any guarantee for not happening another genocide by TPLF. Therefore international community is seriously expected to be aware and react against the TPLF dictatorial act on innocent Amhara people.
