U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is urging the Ethiopian government to ensure “the protection of fundamental human rights” following its imposition of stringent rules under its state of emergency.

U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said Monday that Ban has been following developments in Ethiopia “with concern” following the imposition of the state of emergency effective Oct. 8. The new rules announced late Saturday include a ban on any contact with groups that are labeled as “terrorist.”

Ethiopia’s largest ethnic group, the Oromo, began protesting almost a year ago. According to human rights groups and opposition activists, hundreds of people have been killed in the past year in protests demanding wider freedoms.

Dujarric said Ban “reiterates his call for calm and restraint and calls for inclusive dialogue to resolve all grievances.”

  1. Mr Ban Ki-moon,

    The state terrorism against the burgers in Ethiopia is due to the sustained three fold (viz. financial, diplomatic and political) support by Western States and by the so called international organizations such as UN, IMF and World Bank.

    Sir,
    As you know, the post cold war egregious human rights violations around the world are engineered and sustained by the USA/UK lead Western politicians (often state heads). The strategy is different for every Eastern state/society. For Iraq, Libya, Somalia and Syria was/is invasion in coalition, based on fake allegations.

    For Ethiopia, TPLF is employed disguised with solemn oratories and fake practices.

    The authentic human conscience should demolish the camouflage evility around the world in general and against Ethiopians in particular.

    A third world war is inevitable and may be a solution, Sir.
