Daily Telegraph February 20th 2021

This shocking report describes a mass execution of Tigrayan civilians by Ethiopian soldiers who laugh among themselves as they do it. For months the warning signs have been evident and the UN Special Advisor on Genocide Prevention has confirmed that it has received multiple reports of extrajudicial killings, mass executions, sexual violence, looting and impeded humanitarian access. The Daily Telegraph says it has photographs too graphic to publish which show bodies of children and adolescents blown to pieces.

The U.K. is a permanent member of the UN Security Council. It should be demanding an emergency meeting, insisting on access to the Region, and prosecution of those responsible. Failure to act will make it culpable.

For the Uyghurs, Genocide is a word which dares not speak its name. For the sake of women like Rahima Mahmut, Gulzira Auelkhan, Sayragul Sauytbay, and Ruqiye Perhat – whose heart-breaking, shocking, stories are recorded here – it’s time that the crime of genocide was given definition in the UK. On January 19th Parliament can use its voice and speak that name – insisting on justice for victims of Genocide and refusing to make tawdry trade deals with those responsible for the crime above all crimes.
