Tigrayan New Yorkers continue to raise awareness about the silent genocide in Tigray, Ethiopia’s northernmost state that has been at war with the federal government of Ethiopia and the neighboring state of Eritrea, since Nov. 4, 2020.
On Jan. 4, 2021, concerned New Yorkers, led by members of the Tigray Community of New York, came together to protest against the ongoing war in Tigray. The protest was held in front of the United Nations building in Manhattan between the hours of 9 a.m. and .
“The protest is all about creating awareness and shedding light on the genocide happening in Tigray,” said Niat, a protest attendee.
