ADDIS ABABA — In an unprecedented peaceful march, thousands of Ethiopian Muslims marched on the headquarters of the lie factory known as Ethiopian Television (ETV). ETV is the monopoly and official mouthpiece of Ethiopia’s minority-run regime of the Tigrai People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).
The protests took place on Sunday August 19, in Addis Ababa, following the end of Ramadan prayers. The protestors shouted “liar, liar, liar.” They also demanded that their voices be heard and the truth be reported.
ETV has been at the forefront of the minority regime’s propaganda war against Muslims and other Ethiopians. ETV has labeled the millions of Muslims demanding their rights “extremists and terrorists.” Government lies, propaganda and psychological war have further infuriated the population, leading to even larger demonstrations.
