I urge you to oppose the Biden administration’s effort to undermine the democratically elected government of Ethiopia.
Failing to stand behind a legitimately elected government contradicts the deeply held democratic values of the U.S. and tarnishes its image world-wide, particularly in Africa. By alienating Ethiopia, the U.S. stands to lose a major strategic ally in the most volatile region of Africa.
I implore you to:
— Express your support to the democratically elected government of Ethiopia and denounce the Tigray People Liberation Front’s actions to destabilize Ethiopia.
— Call on the administration to recognize Ethiopia’s inalienable right to defend itself from internal and external destabilizing forces.
— Call on the administration to reinstate Ethiopia as beneficiary to African Growth and Opportunity Act.
