This Thursday, February 24, 2022, Humanity witnessed live on all television channels the brutal aggression of Ukraine by the armies of Russian imperialism leaded by Putin. They witness, dazed, the bombardments and the unleashing of the war.
This sad spectacle, the people of Tigray know it too well: it has been part of their daily life for More than 1 year and half now, since Ethiopian imperialism launched its offensive by invading Tigray.
This does not mean that the government of Tigray is beyond reproach or a model of respect for human rights and democracy. But it must be recognized that it is the same imperialist logic that is implemented by Ethiopia as Russia. However, in the Horn of Africa, the horrors of war can continue because they take place in the almost general indifference of international public opinion.
Ethiopia to wage its dirty war enjoys the support of a number of countries that provide military aid. For instance Turkey, a member of NATO, sold military drones to the Ethiopian governement. The drone’s motors are made in Ukraine. The government of Ukraine – despite being under the threat of an imperialism – did not hesitate to send mercenary-technicians to teach the imperialist Ethiopian army how to use the military drones against Tigray population.
However, we know that those who cause wars are not those who die. We do not confuse the population with the government. It is the workers, the students, the farmers, the people who live in simple cottages who are always the victims of the wars started by their elites, their governments and their bourgeoisie, who are always well sheltered in their palaces.
Also, even though the Ukrainian government sold to the Ethiopian one, weapons which are used to increase the genocide in Tigray, we must oppose with all our might the imperialist aggression of the Russian government against the people in Ukraine.
Just as we stand in solidarity with those in Russia who say « no to war » and refuse to obey imperialist delirium.
From Tigray to Ukraine, no to war, no to imperialism! International solidarity! Welcoming refugees!
As the Russian and Ukrainian anti-militarists say: Peace to the cottages, war to the palaces!
