A group of more than 100 members of the Oromo community took part in another march to protest the killing of a famous singer.

They gathered this morning at a park near the Mary J. Treglia Community house with flags and signs before heading to the Federal Courthouse in downtown Sioux City.  

They demand for justice for Hachalu Hundessa who got killed and for other Oromo leaders who have been jailed.

  

Các thành viên của cộng đồng Oromo thành phố Sioux City đã mang theo các biển báo nói rằng “Oromo Lives Matter” (Người Oromo đáng được sống) ngày hôm nay để gây chú ý với bạo lực đối với người Oromo ở Ethiopia. Những người biểu tình ở đó đã xuống đường sau vụ giết chết Hachalu Hundessa, một người nổi tiếng, chính trị, một ca sĩ.

Được biết, 50 người biểu tình đã bị giết. Chính phủ Ethiopia đã đóng cửa mạng xã hội, khiến việc liên lạc và phủ sống trở nên khó khăn.

Docenas de personas realizaron una protesta pacífica en el centro de Sioux City después de los disturbios en el condado de Etiopía.

Los miembros de la comunidad oromo de la ciudad de Sioux llevaban carteles hoy que decían "Oromo Lives Matter" para llamar la atención sobre la violencia contra las personas oromo en Etiopía. Los manifestantes tomaron las calles luego del asesinato de Hachalu Hundessa, un popular cantante político oromo.
