Ethiopian Muslims in Auckland have arranged a fundraising event to support the peaceful struggle of Ethiopian Muslims for justice and raise awareness of the struggle in the Auckland region.

The Ethiopian Government has violated Article 18 of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights in response to the ongoing Muslim protest movement in the country. Large numbers of protesters and journalists have been arrested, many of whom remain in detention. There are also numerous cases of police using excessive force and killing of peaceful demonstrators. 29 Key figures within the movement have been charged with terrorism offences are currently detained and subjected to torture. Most of those arrested and charged appear to have been targeted solely because of their participation in a peaceful protest movement.

Ethiopian Muslims have been staging protests for the past 14 months; urging the Government to grant them religious freedom. This includes the right to elect members of the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs (SCIA). Current SCIA members have been appointed by the Government to facilitate imposition of an alien religious doctrine imported from Lebanon. Instead of addressing this simple issue, the Government has been rigorously repressing, dividing and mislabelling protesters. Please join us in exposing the Ethiopian Government for its flagrant Human Rights violation against its own citizens. Proceeds from the event will go to families of the victims.
