We speak to a senior TPLF member about the conflict in Tigray, and discuss US gun reform with a school shooting survivor.
This week on UpFront we ask Getachew Reda, Executive Committee member of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), about the conflict in Ethiopia’s Tigray region and whether the group’s ultimate goal is an independent Tigrayan state. Fighting between the TPLF and Ethiopian and Eritrean forces has left thousands dead and forced more than 600,000 to flee to neighbouring Sudan.
And a series of mass shootings in recent weeks has reignited the debate about guns in the United States, but will any substantive reforms be made? In a special interview, Marc Lamont Hill discusses the politics of gun control with activist and school-shooting survivor Cameron Kasky.
