We are shocked and terribly sad to learn that the Ethiopian girl who we saw on a video over the weekend being attacked and kidnapped by Lebanese men in front of the Ethiopian embassy has committed suicide this morning. She might have been killed to cover up what really had happened to her after she was kidnapped.
What happened to our sister Alem Dechasa is a crime against all Ethiopian women. The horror and humility she suffered is unacceptable to any decent human being. To express our outrage over the crime committed against Alem and mourn her death, concerned Ethiopians in the Washington DC area will gather in front of the Lebanon embassy tomorrow, Thursday, at 11 AM. Alem is not just a “domestic worker.” She is an innocent human being and a beautiful Ethiopian woman who didin’t deserve to die this way.
Place. Embassy of Lebannon
Address: 2560 28th Street NW, Washington, DC 20008
