In November 2020, in a struggle over autonomy, Abiy Ahmed declared war on the Tigray region of Ethiopia claiming retaliation for an unverified attack. The Tigrian people have been caught in the middle of this bloody conflict for months after having endured a devastating year in which the region faced challenges due to COVID-19, massive flooding and a locust outbreak that destroyed crops. As a result of a communications blackout, much of the international community is unaware of the atrocities and hardships that continue to face this region.
A group from Boston drove up to Burlington to march against the events in Tigray and bring awareness to the atrocities taking place there.
