TV Tigrai - Amharic - The government is on a dangerous path! Dec 14, 2018


The federal government of Ethiopia is becoming extremely reckless by allowing the continued killing and displacement of the Qimant people in northwestern Amhara Region. To make it worst the federal government is allowing poisonous propaganda to be aired over government-owned media against "Tigrigna speaking people"! This heroic lady stood up in front of Gedu Andargachew delegation in Seattle Washington, the USA on Dec 2018 to speak on behalf of the persecuted Qimant people. People's call must be heard else they will revolt to be heard! Kudos to those who posted the clip. Dec 12, 2018!

The airing of Tuesday's torture documentary came several weeks after another documentary appeared on state television involving state-owned Metals and Engineering Corporation (METEC). While this may signal a new commitment to justice, the government should avoid the past practice of using these documentaries to undermine defendants' right to a fair trial by mobilizing the public to support a judiciary that was far from independent of state control. Human Rights Watch and others have continually stressed the importance of accountability and justice but trials not turned into politicized shows targeting those seen to be opposed to the government and its policies,
Even HRW, staunch supporter of the Abiy government can't hide its displeasure! HRW in a way is wholeheartedly agreeing with the Tigrai demonstrators!
