Betreseltan of VOA Interview with Ato Siye Abraha, current Deputy Chairman of UDJ
   Part I    Part II

Now that Birtukan has officially stepped down, we wonder why, UDJ thinks it still is Kinjit "werash"!! With Dr Negasso and Ato Siye leading the party,it will be interesting to see how the extermist supporters of UDJ in Diaspora will handle the new leaders? We are sure this was not the transformation they have been looking for!

...Interesting concept UDJ has! It used to be, one has to wage a revolution from "ke Geter wede Ketema" since most people live in the country side. And it was a proven concept BTW! But UDJ has none of it, it wants to wage the revolution from City to Countryside "ke Ketema wede Geter"
Did things change or remained the same since EPRP flirtation with insurrection in the late Sixties....with a deadly result! How is such concept compatible with election politics and winning majority?
