Meta Accused of Stoking Human Rights Abuses In Ethiopia's Tigray
Facebook owner Meta has contributed to serious human rights abuses against Ethiopia's Tigrayan community, Amnesty International says in a new report published on October 31, 2023.
Amnesty says that Meta has once again failed to adequately curb the spread of content advocating hatred and violence, this time targeting Tigrayans during the November 2020 to November 2022 armed conflict in northern Ethiopia.
The conflict between Ethiopia and the Tigray region escalated into a full-scale war in November 2020. Millions of people were displaced and fled to neighbouring countries such as Sudan. Attempts at an AU-led peaceful resolution were made, with peace talks held in South Africa in October 2022, which ended in a peace deal on November 3, 2022.
