Amhara Community in United Kingdom (ACUK) was established on May 25, 2019 in response to a series of very alarming events involving slaughtering of innocent Amharas en-masse across Ethiopia over the past thirty years and particularly the last three years. The founding members of ACUK comprise Amharas who are residing in the United Kingdom.
It has accomplished substantial work on human rights in Ethiopia in general and the Amhara population in particular since it was established. It has organized multiple public awareness meetings and demonstrations to denounce the ongoing Amhara people disenfranchisement and gross human rights violations over the last 30 years in Ethiopia. We also wrote multiple letters to international organizations, medias, human right organizations and governments including the United Kingdom appealing to stop the Amhara genocide in Ethiopia.
