May 03, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —– In mid-April a new wave of violence erupted as a tribal feud spilled over the South Sudanese border into Ethiopia leaving more than 200 men, women, and children dead, more than 100 children kidnapped, and more than 2,000 head of cattle looted in the villages of the ethnic Nuer.

The same people suffered immense loss of life during the genocide which took place during the conflict in South Sudan in 2013. This tribe has been routinely singled out as non-ethnic Sudanese and pointedly targeted.

As a personal survivor of the conflict with North Sudan and as a concerned citizen, this event pains me greatly and makes me fear the worst.

It is crucial that both the South Sudanese government and international community acknowledge and condemn this horrific crime. The Ethiopian government has played an integral role helping to broker the recent peace agreement which brought to an end the conflict in South Sudan. To not acknowledge this aggression and not offer strategies to address this issue would be gravely disrespectful to the Ethiopians, who have provided refuge and aid to thousands fleeing the conflict.

I invite the Canadian government and the United Nations to stand up and address this event and to work together with the African Union to reach a peaceful resolution. To do nothing further enhances the potential for further conflict and more suffering.
