It has above all attacked populations far removed from hostilities, in order to terrorize and exterminate them.

At the beginning, towards the end ofItalian aircraft hurled upon my armies bombs of tear-gas. Their effects were but slight.

Haile Selassie, "Appeal to the League of Nations," June

The soldiers learned to scatter, waiting until the wind had rapidly dispersed the poisonous gases. The Italian aircraft then resorted to mustard gas. Barrels of liquid were hurled upon armed groups. But this means also was not effective; the liquid affected only a few soldiers, and barrels upon the ground were themselves a warning to troops and to the population of the danger.

It was at the time when the operations for the encircling of Makalle were taking place that the Italian command, fearing a rout, followed the procedure which it is now my duty to denounce to the world.

All those who drank the poisoned water or ate the infected food also succumbed in dreadful suffering. In tens of thousands, the victims of the Italian mustard gas fell.

It is in order to denounce to the civilized world the tortures inflicted upon the Ethiopian people that I resolved to come to Geneva. None other than myself and my brave companions in arms could bring the League of Nations the undeniable proof.

The appeals of my delegates addressed to the League of Nations had haile selassie i speeches without any answer; my delegates had not been witnesses.

That is why I decided to come myself to bear witness against the crime perpetrated against my people and give Europe a warning of the doom that awaits it, if it should bow before the accomplished fact.

Is it necessary to remind the Assembly of the haile selassie i speeches stages of the Ethiopian drama? For 20 years past, either as Heir Apparent, Regent of the Haile selassie i speeches, or as Emperor, I have never ceased to use all my efforts to bring my country the benefits of civilization, and in particular to establish relations of good neighbourliness with adjacent powers.
