Ethiopia: Embracing Development and Security Means Embracing Free Expression Birtukan Mideksa Aug 2014 -
The Ethiopian government has long relied on the same arguments to defend its actions—falsely claiming that the Anti-Terrorism Proclamation copies equivalent European standards... If we are serious about development..., we need to hold the Ethiopian government accountable and reinforce the proposition that there can be no robust, sustainable growth without respect for the fundamental rights for all Africans...[ We are not missing the fact good governance and democracy must go hand in hand with its economic development, but, what would Birtukan say why China a communist country is so developed today? Birtukan should explain in depth why Ethiopia's economic development will be stifle by the jailing of individuals here and there so to speak!]
