Lessons from the Growth and Transformation Campaign in North America: For the Extremist, Supporters and All!
April 11, 2011(Aigaforum)-Ethiopia is on the move. Its economy on an upward trajectory and its people more hopeful than ever. The country is destined to become one of the middle income earner countries in few years time. Many people who returned from a recent visit to the country have become a witness to today’s Ethiopia reality. It is no wonder then the Growth and Transformation tour in North America was a very successful despite the short comings observed in organizing the campaign in some cities...
The Growth and Transformation Revolution and Extremist in Diaspora Fate!
With the advent of the EPRDF Ethiopia has transformed quite a bit. Its International image has risen so much so its leaders are sought after by world leaders for consultation. And above all, Ethiopia today is considered as one of the fastest growing economies in the world! Its dilapidated cites have gotten new faces, they are no more eyesore. Its people are full of new hopes and new energy wanting to do the impossible. This new hope and new energy is helping Ethiopians to confirm the old saying - the Chinese can move mountains.
Ethiopians are ready to build a huge Dam at the Blue Nile. Ethiopians from all walks of life are donating their money and energy towards the realization of this Dam. Ethiopians are in sync to transform the country once and for all, never to see a dying child because of starvation and a dying mother due to lack of maternity help! In Short Ethiopians are waging a revolution of their own!
The revolution is contagious much like the Arab Revolution and it has arrived in North American Cities where many Ethiopians live! The extremist were hoping to export their "revolution" to Addis Ababa to cause mayhem and what have you... but a new kind of revolution has come to them! The Revolution Ethiopians really wanted has caught them with their pants down so to speak.
Extremist you have been check mated! Surrender and join the people's Revolution. Building Millennium Dam is good for all! Defeating Poverty is good for all.
