Motion text

That this House, noting the first anniversary of the conflict in Tigray, Ethiopia on 3 November 2021, deeply regrets the deaths of tens of thousands of civilians as result of airstrikes, massacres and crop destruction, and the displacement of more than 2,000,000 people; deplores the horrific sexual violence to which an estimated 10,000 women have been subjected; notes with grave concern that some 5.2 million people are now in humanitarian need; and calls on the Government to press the UN Security Council for a ceasefire with agreements on boundaries and access corridors; immediate and full humanitarian access to all areas affected by the conflict with safety guarantees for humanitarian workers; withdrawal of all Eritrean troops from Ethiopia; a fully independent investigation of human right abuses, including the use of sexual violence, with judicial action to follow; and an inclusive national dialogue to secure a sustainable peace.
