The Who, What & Why of Ethiopia’s Wars and the U.S. Response
October 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Four armies along with several ad hoc militias are fighting in and around northern Ethiopia’s Tigray region. Each side blames the other(s) for atrocities, amid warnings of mass starvation and accusations of genocide. The U.S., a long-time strategic partner of Ethiopia, calls for an end to hostilities and a negotiated settlement, threatening sanctions against all parties. All this in a country led by a recent Nobel Peace prize winner. Gloucester-based author and activist Dan Connell will try to sort this out in a MAPA webinar and explore the prospects and possibilities for peace in the region.
