Hundreds of protesters rallied outside the White House in Washington, DC, to voice their support for the Ethiopian government and denounce the US government’s foreign policy there, seen as sympathetic to rebels fighting Addis Ababa. They held placards expressing support for PM Abiy Ahmed and also slammed US sanctions on the country and its neighbor Eritrea, which they said were meant to force Abiy to give into his aggressors. Rallies were also in London. Protestors waving Ethiopian and Eritrean flags denounced what they termed as western bullying. The US has sanctioned Asmara for its role in the conflict in Ethiopia.
