COMMEMORATION OF THE 81st ANNIVERSARY OF THE FASCIST ITALIAN MASSACRE IN ADDIS ABABA

Re: Fascist Italian massacre of Ethiopians during February 19-21, 1937 in Addis Ababa and the mausoleum installed for Graziani at Affile, Italy;

Date and Places of Commemorations: February 19-21, 2019 in cities throughout the world;

Participants: All people who believe in justice and respect for human rights;

Main Reasons: On February 19-21, 1937, 30,000 Ethiopians were massacred by Mussolini’s Fascist Italian criminal invading forces in Addis Ababa. During 1935-41, the Italian Fascists have massacred one million Ethiopians as well as destroying 2,ooo churches, 525,000 homes and 14 million animals. Although an Italian court has sentenced the mayor of Affile and two councilors to imprisonments and financial penalties, the case of the removal of the mausoleum inaugurated for the Fascist criminal, Rodolfo Graziani, in Auguest 2012 in the presence of a Vatican representative has not been fully resolved. The Vatican was also complicit as its bishops and clergy blessed the criminal invasion as if it were a holy mission. This international protest will take place in memory of our patriots who were victims of the Fascist Italian war crimes and in order to achieve the following objectives of justice for the Ethiopian people:

JUSTICE REQUIRED FOR THE ETHIOPIAN PEOPLE:

  1. The payment of adequate reparations by the Italian Government to Ethiopia;
  2. A Vatican apology to the Ethiopian people for its complicity with Fascist Italy;
  3. Restitution of looted Ethiopian properties by the Italian and Vatican Governments;
  4. Inclusion in the United Nations records of the Fascist war crimes in Ethiopia;
  5. Dismantlement of the Graziani mausoleum inaugurated at Affile by Italy in the presence of a Vatican representative;

JUSTICE FOR ETHIOPIA!
