Dethrone the 'Activists'
Samuel Estefanous 11 November 2019 - We are openly courting mayhem-worse still-we are courting bloody disintegration lest we take heed of the unerring lessons of history. You will be surprised to learn how blood curling carnages have been induced by a bunch of irresponsible half-baked losers craving the limelight foolishly and vainly.

Yohannes Gebresellasie (Ph.d) Addis Ababa 11-11-19 - The mass movement of people is arguably the biggest story of our time. Migration is by nature unpredictable. There are various causes of migration. Some of them are economic, social and political. For example, the reason behind voluntary migration may be of an economic nature while that of forced migration may be political.

In defense of Jawar
On October 22, around midnight, an audio posted on Facebook reported a crisis unfolding in the Bole district of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia's capital. In the audio, a commander in the Ethiopian Federal Police was heard instructing the protective detail assigned to Jawar Mohammed, the Executive Director of the Oromia Media Network (OMN), to vacate their post at their assigned subject’' residence.The security detail who first answered the call refused to accept an order that came at midnight as unlawful...

Some Ignorant and Clueless EPRDF Leaders are destroying the Ethiopian Fabric Built over the Years!
Aigaforum Nov 8, 2019 - The problem with the current EPRDF leadership is very troublesome! We are starting to question our support over the years to this organization. We never imagined EPRDF had leaders like BuaYalew Yohannes! Neither did we presume the proud people of Amhara have such an incompetent leader in their midst. Wow, it is extremely heartbreaking!...(+Audio)

Oromo Studies Association Open Letter to PM Abiy Ahmed
Please accept my congratulations on winning the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize. I believe the award is not only for what you have done in the past, but it is also an encouragement for what you can do in the future. You now have the global and local support to transform Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa region and make democracy and regard for human rights the new norm.

Mekelle: 26 October 2012 E.C Being very anxious about the spread of locusts in some parts of Tigrai diaspora Tegaru living in Qatar donated over 78 thousand to support the prevention and eradication efforts of the spread of locusts. Combined efforts of prevention and eradication of locusts, which involved...

Doing Business 2020: Comparing Business Regulation in 190 Economies
The Doing Business 2020 study shows that developing economies are catching up with developed economies in ease of doing business. Still, the gap remains wide. An entrepreneur in a low-income economy typically spends around 50 percent of the country’s per-capita income to launch a company, compared with just 4.2 percent for an entrepreneur in a highincome economy. Ethiopia is ranked 159 out of 190 countries!

President Trump On Renaissance Dam Meeting in Washington DC
For the Record.- We have been tirelessly promoting Renaissance Dam public support mobilization in the diaspora since its inception! We believe this project is key to Ethiopia's success in becoming energy sufficient.
Ever since the Abiy government came to power, the project has faced many setbacks. We were hoping the project was back on track after the two-year delay. We are not sure what will be the outcome of the current US lead discussion, but, if the Abiy government agrees to allow Egypt to have any say on the operation of the dam or if it agrees to downsize the Dam permanently, this agreement will be similar to the Wuchale Treaty Atse Menelik signed to cede Eritrea to Italy! History will treat ODP and ADP as the only enablers that allowed Egypt to determine Ethiopia's future. Aigaforum Nov 6, 2019

The End of Neoliberalism and the Rebirth of History
Even though Prof. Stigliz is writing in the context of the US debate about economic growth, development and democracy, it might be instructive to what is going on in our country today. In fact, it has a huge implication to a "philosophy" of Medemer. It is stunning to me how people easily fall for a charlatan philosopher who thinks the country is in crisis because of our poverty of philosophy. (from our email folder).

The Politics of the Protests in Oromia
Makonnen Tesfaye, 5 November 2019 - The tragic death of 86 Ethiopians in the Regional State of Oromia following the protests of Oromo youth (Qeerroos) -sparked bythe Government's attempt to remove security cover from Jawar Mohammed (possibly endangering his life) -has beenhighly politicised both by theOne-Nation politicians and the PM following the latter's video message to the Country on 3 November 2019.

It's the PM stupid.
Esated 06/11/2019 - I am borrowing the phrase "It's the economy stupid" a phrase coined by one of Bill Clinton's campaign strategists from the 90s with a slight twist to show what I think is the problem with Ethiopian politics since the current PM, Abiy came to power. Yes we all have been swept off our feet and made to believe that the sky was the limit, and a magic formula to democratize Ethiopia...

PM Abiy Ahmed should resign!
Serbessa K, 6th November 2019 - PM Abiy Ahmed has failed to transition Ethiopia to Democracy. He was fully aware about what was the faults of TPLF led EPRDF brutal regime (as some one working on top in espionage), but he is not equipped with knowledge and skill to lead, guide and resolve what to follow, the complex Ethiopia's political reality. His spontaneous, poorly thought and non prepared response...

TPLF is repeating the Same Fatal Mistakes (Part Three)
Yene Gasha 11-5-19 - Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me! Two years ago, TPLF was betrayed by Team Lemma, the self-proclaimed Team Oro-Amhara, when it pretended it had reached an understanding with TPLF regarding EPRDF's collective guilt and mismanagement of the country. Unfortunately, this group ended up using TPLF and "Tigrigna-speakers" in general as scapegoats in its rise to power.

Liberal democracy is no liberator
Emmanuel Yirdaw 11-4-19 - Under the late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, the EPRDF ruling coalition diagnosed two existential threats: a perpetuation of poverty and a lack of accommodation of ethnic diversity. To survive state collapse and prosper, EPRDF ideologues argued, Ethiopia needed a system that respected ethnic diversity and delivered rapid economic growth. Revolutionary democracy was the vanguard party ideology designed to achieve this. To address poverty, revolutionary democratic state-building justified the rapid expansion of the party-state into all ...

Rulers in Ethiopia have always been democratic paper-tigers
Yohannes Aberra, PhD 11-4-19 - The foundation of democracy for people is the freedom they are entitled to choose how to be ruled. This implies that democracy is rule by consent. Rulers in the past have violated this principle and were installed in power by descent rather than by consent. Ethiopia was ruled for thousand years by the Solomonic Dynasty which traced its origin not to Ethiopia but to a ruler in a far away land (Israel).
