In this speech, given after Ethiopia has suffered great losses and can no longer continue to fight, the Emperor (now in exile) appears to the League of Nations and condemns Italian actions, and criticizes the rest of the world for allowing it to happen. It was his hope that the League would not recognize Italy's conquest, and would aid the Ethiopian resistance financially, but neither of those things happened.
