House Resolution 128: Supporting respect for human rights

Dear Ethiopian/Ethiopian-Americans,

Ethiopian-Americans who care about human rights and democracy in their homeland should write to their members of Congress asking for support for House Resolution 128: Supporting respect for human rights and encouraging inclusive governance in Ethiopia. Currently has 53 cosponsors.

A copy of the resolution is available at https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/115/hres128/text.

Contact information for members of Congress is available at https://www.usa.gov/elected-officials.

Individuals can write their own letters or modify the letter below:

Dear Representative XX,

I am writing to ask you to support House Resolution 128: Supporting respect for human rights and encouraging inclusive governance in Ethiopia. The resolution notes some of the outrageous abuses of human right perpetuated by the Ethiopian government. It notes the Ethiopian government’s subversion of democracy, suppression of free speech, and some of the atrocities that have been committed against Ethiopians who have committed no crimes.

HR 128 will put the United States on the right side of history, expressing support for the rights and values that Americans take for granted. The right to express your political opinion and the right to vote and have one’s vote counted and respected. 

Sincerely,

[Name and address]

I am fully supporting HR 128 because since the current government took power in 1991 citizens criticize or opposing the gov they put in hidden prisons and torch,killing. now because of their ethical ideology for the last 26 years the Ethiopian people is in danger and the result is shown now that neighboring region people killing each other and too many people displaced by the cause of
conflict while all this violence going on the gov keep silence all most for two weeks. At this time the Ethiopian people not willing to carry those dictators and killers and I advice the US gov to stop those killers other wise I am afraid genocide will occurs in Ethiopia.

Thanks,
