Green Sunday (Jan. 8th, 5 pm):  Conflict in Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa: Countering the US Propaganda Narrative   

January 8th, 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm Via Zoom.
please see access info below 

The two-year civil war in Ethiopia has seen far more casualties than the Ukraine War but received a tiny fraction of the press. Estimates are that half a million people, maybe even more, have died, while the highest estimate is 100,000 in Ukraine. According to the Internal Displacement Monitoring Center, Ethiopia also saw a record number of people internally displaced by conflict in 2021, over five million.

The press it has gotten has been largely that of the genocide industrial complex, which portrays the Tegaru minority as victims in the conflict, and the Ethiopian government and its ally Eritrea as the aggressors and war criminals. This narrative is in line with the US foreign policy objective of controlling the Horn of Africa. Ann Garrison will talk about what she saw on her trip to Ethiopia and Eritrea in March, April, May and June. She will be joined by Eritrean American scholar, journalist, and activist Elias Amare. 

Ann Garrison is a Contributing Editor at Black Agenda Report, a contributor to The Grayzone, Counterpunch, and Pacifica Radio, and a longtime Green.

Elias Amare is an Eritrean American scholar, activist, and host of Horn of Africa TV.
