Meta, the parent company of Facebook, contributed to serious human rights abuses against Ethiopia’s Tigrayan community, Amnesty International said in a report which shows how Meta has once again failed to adequately curb the spread of content advocating hatred and violence, this time targeting Tigrayans the November 2020 to November 2022 armed conflict in northern Ethiopia.
Three years after its staggering failures in Myanmar, Meta has once again – through its content-shaping algorithms and data-hungry business model – contributed to serious human rights abuses. Agnès Callamard, Amnesty International’s Secretary General
“However, Meta ignored these warnings and did not take appropriate mitigation measures, even after the conflict had broken out. As a result, Meta has again contributed to serious human rights abuses, this time perpetrated against the Tigrayan community.”
