Oromo people march for end to US aid to Ethiopean regime

On the 29th of September, Baltimore Bloc reported "3000+" in a march of mostly the Oromo people of Ethiopia and Kenya demanding an end to US and World Bank aid to the regime in Ethiopia. They are calling out the regime for genocide and the use of armed force to suppress peaceful protest against the Addis Ababa Integrated Master Plan, which would absorb tribal lands into the capital city and create mass displacement of farmers. The ruling TPLF/EPRDF party has been called a fascist party for their treatment of the Oromo people.
