The U.S. should reassess its support
for the government of Ethiopia, amid concern that more than half
a million people are being evicted to make land available for
foreign investment in agriculture, advocacy groups including the
Oakland Institute said.
A meeting tomorrow between President Barack Obama and
Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, among other African
leaders, presents an opportunity for the U.S. to address the
issue, the California-based group said in a joint statement with
the Solidarity Movement for a New Ethiopia, or SMNE. The U.S.
has provided aid worth more than $1 billion a year since 2007 to
Ethiopia, according to the statement.
Foreign investment in commercial farming may be the “single

responding to an international call asking you to put the brakes
on this impending and present-day catastrophe.” Read the rest of this entry

In my social life, political or any, I don’t remember to have seen any movement that captivated the imagination of the entire segments of a society like the 2008 Obama presidential campaign did. Obama 2008 was one for the ages so much so that it brought an end to the Anglo-Saxon domination of the executive mansion of the US of America. Most importantly, Obama’s victory gave people of color the hope that; if they work hard, they can rise to the highest standard of honor. All in all, Obama 2008 was full of promises and full of hope. Yes, hope… hope to America, hope to Africa, and hope to the world. The United States is a country of immigrants, and through the years, especially, after 1974, hundreds of thousands of Ethiopians have immigrated to the United States and have become part of the changing faces of America. Today, Read the rest of this entry

This is a great opportunity for all Ethiopians residing in and around Washington DC to protest and make the world know the destruction and atrocities he and his regime committed on our country and our people.
Meles is an architect of Ethiopian destruction; destroyer of Ethiopian identity; master of divide and rule; trader of thousands of our Ethiopian sisters to Arab countries; a killer of innocent Ethiopians; merchant of our fertile land and promoter of land grab; master jailer of free thinking citizens; leader of mafia organization and supreme thief that looted Ethiopia of its precious and meager resources.
