About 100 people, mainly from the Oromo community, showed up to walk from downtown to the Manitoba Legislative Building Sunday

The local Oromo community came together to protest what they call gross human rights violations in Ethiopia on Sunday.

About 110 people from the Oromo and other Ethiopian communities showed up to march in the bitter cold, starting at the CBC Manitoba building at Portage Avenue to the Manitoba Legislative Building starting at noon on Sunday.

The protestors say Canada is the African country’s greatest international aid ally, but said the money the Canadian government provides should not be sent until Ethiopia improves its human rights record.

The group says the Oromo community is seeing violations of its rights in Ethiopia, including the “killing, torturing, harassing, mass jailing of Oromo farmers, students, civil servants and business people.”

The group demanded the immediate release of Oromo students, business leaders, farmers and opposition leaders from jails, and asked the Canadian government to apply pressure to the Ethiopian government.
