A day before the launch of the ‘large-scale offensive’ by Ethiopia, Tigray’s President Debretsion Gebremichael wrote an open letter to leaders of African Union (AU), Senegal (current chair of the AU), Kenya, UAE, South Africa, UN, EU, US, IGAD.

In the open letter from August 23, 2022, the president called up on the leaders to act to ensure credible, impartial mediation before what moment “at which we face death whichever way we turn.” The open letter continued, ” our choice is only whether we perish by starvation or whether we die fighting for our rights and our dignity” .

A copy of the six page open letter is below.
