Stand With Tigray (SWT) was founded on November 6, 2020, in reaction to the unjust war and genocide waged on the people of Ethiopia’s northernmost region, Tigray, by central government forces, Eritrean forces, and armed Amhara militias. Stand with Tigray has become a global campaign whose aim is to raise awareness about the war crimes and human rights violations committed against the Tigrayan people in Ethiopia.
SWT engages in social media campaigns to raise awareness, develop and maintain educational platforms to support our humanitarian causes.
- We Demand for the unconditional cessation of hostilities and for the immediate withdrawal of the Ethiopian and Eritrean armies and the Amhara militia from Tigray.
- Open humanitarian corridors, and under the leadership of the U.N, provide emergency aid workers unfettered access to the millions of Tigrayans in need of emergency assistance;
- Restore all forms of communication in Tigray including the Internet, phone lines, air and land transport; and
- We Demand for a United Nations Security Council resolution to establish a UN-led investigation into all atrocities and violations of international law, especially war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide against the people of Tigray.
