Today Ethiopians Hold Massive Protest Outside Saudi Arabia Embassy in Washington DC -“Stop the Violence and Brutality Against Ethiopians in Saudi Arabia”

Washington, D.C. (Rainbow-Ethiopia) — Thousands of Ethiopian demonstrators gathered outside the Saudi Embassy in Washington, D.C. today to protest the beating, raping and killings of several Ethiopian citizens and the violent clampdown against foreign migrants workers in Saudi Arabia. The protesters also denounced xenophobia in the kingdom and the role of vigilante Saudi civilians in violence directed against Ethiopians.

The protesters were dressed in black scarves and held placards that read, “Shame on You” and “Stop Killing and Raping our Sisters.” Emotions ran high as protestors braved the cold weather to express their disappointment and outrage at both the Saudi and Ethiopian governments, waving the Ethiopian flag and shouting various slogans.
“We don’t understand why our government is unable to protect our citizens,” some asked angrily.
