Hi, my name is <Name> and I live in <City, State>. I am calling to request my representative <Name of Your Representative> to sponsor a resolution condemning Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia for the deliberate targeting and attacks against the Amhara people and requesting an Independent Investigation as to the events from June 21-June 27. Under the pretext of a “coup” Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has sent thousands of soldiers to the Amhara Region, resulting in untold number of people killed, wrongfully arresting over 400 Amharas across the country including 83 opposition party members, journalists, shutting down the Internet, and putting an entire people of 35 million under siege. I am asking for my representative to sponsor a resolution to condemn this act and request an independent investigation.
