#StepDown:The people of Konso

(A4O, 31 October 2016)-A solidarity campaign calling on the Ethiopian Government to step down in light of the second wave of protests that began in November 2015, now a movement that has engulfed most of Ethiopia.

The Oromo people have been leading this call for national reform and as a result, have been met by unimaginable state sanctioned violence. In joining the movement, Amhara regions and Southern Nations have also been subject to extreme violence by Ethiopian security forces. Now a full blown revolution that will only end when the Ethiopian Government is no longer in power, we stand with the people in their call to make this a reality.

The Ethiopian government needs to #StepDown. We will release one video a week for four weeks, each video telling a specific story from the revolution, each story giving you clear insight into why it is time for the Ethiopian Government to #StepDown. Week one, we bring you the story of the people of Konso.
