What exactly is #NoMore about?

Currently organized by the Horn of Africa Hub, the #NoMore campaign was created by a coalition of Ethiopian and Eritrean activists led by former Al Jazeera & CBS journalist Hermela Aregawi. Its central objective is to oppose the ongoing Western media disinformation campaign, Western economic warfare, diplomatic propaganda and military interventions in Africa in general, and the “Horn of Africa” in particular. Its current focus is on Ethiopia, where a US-backed TPLF insurrectionists waged a brutal war that displaced millions of Ethiopians and killed thousands, including most notably slaughtering over a 1200 Amhara civilians in Maikadra town.

This war initially began when TPLF ethnic-profiled & massacred hundreds of Non-Tigrayan federal officers in November 2020; rejecting two years of peace-building attempts by the Nobel Peace Prize winning Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. Since then, the Western corporate media-intelligence complex portrayed the TPLF rebels as victims facing the stereotypical African dictatorship: despite TPLF committing mass atrocities and the current Ethiopian administration being the country’s first democratically elected government. In an effort to embolden the rebels, President Joe Biden’s top official Samantha Powers began fabricating “ways to embarrass” Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy (according to investigation by Politico media) while Biden’s team continued imposing economic sanctions on Ethiopia and its Eritrean allies. To tilt the military balance in favor of the heavily-armed TPLF rebels (who were already trained by US Army & had accumulated over 80 percent of Ethiopia’s arsenal) Western powers recently imposed arms embargo on the new democratic government of Ethiopia.

#NoMore is thus being supported by Africans and others worldwide who oppose insurrectionist rebels in Africa as well as support nonviolent democratic reforms in the continent. The recent global #NoMore marches organized by the Horn of Africa Hub are co-sponsored by the Answer Coalition and the US-based Black Alliance for Peace (BAP)  which opposes “western military power to impose western control of African land and resources,” among others. BAP is led by Green Party’s 2016 US Vice-Presidential nominee Ajamu Baraka who labeled TPLF a “western proxy” and claimed “the same individuals who now hold positions in the Biden administration were accomplices in the U.S.-led NATO decimation of Libya, hiding behind a modern-day version of the ‘White man’s burden’ otherwise known as “Responsibility to  Protect (R2P).”  In addition to Samantha Powers’ role in the catastrophic 2011 US Libya military intervention (which Obama said was his “biggest mistake”), several former CIA operatives who helped TPLF rebels in the 1980s, including Gayle Smith, was recently on a tour of Africa influencing US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken to support TPLF rebels.
