Irob's demonstrating in Dawhan Against the EEBC, The Hague Decision

This video is about the continued opposition of Irob against the Algiers "Peace" Agreement between Ethiopia and Eritrea that divides the Irob minority between two countries for no apparent reasons. Irobs have been voicing their grievances ever since. This particular demonstration is from 2018, Dawhan, Irob, after the Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali announced that Ethiopia will accept the Algiers agreement with out conditions.

“If the decision of the EEBC is implemented as it is, this tiny Irob land and people will be divided into two belligerent nations. That, almost certainly, will be the end of the existence of the Irob minority as a viable ethnic group,” argued Fissuh.
