On extremist demonstration on behalf of Birtukan

Slowly but surely the silent majority is taking notice of the extremist agenda and is denying them the lime light no matter what! The recent demonstration if one can call it that, to denounce the federal government on behalf of Birtukan was a failure everywhere it was held. Even with their exaggerated number of those who attended the number they reported is in the tens not hundreds! We sure are glad that the silent majority in Diaspora has said enough is enough. If Birtukan is wronged the court not hooligans and extremist in bed with Shaibya will be her savior! The constitution and the Rule of Law must be respected any time! Friends and supporters of Birtukan should support Birtukan drive to win her freedom through legal means! [Aigaforum 01/15/09]

    Comment:It will be interesting to see if the one man government in Eritrea will say "yes sir" and pull out or stand tall- in his own thinking, and say to the UN, what you going to do if I don’t! Like it has done with prior UN resolution in regard to the UNMEE!...

Peter Heinlein 01/11/09:- A leading Ethiopian opposition politician, who was imprisoned for life last month after a dispute with the government, has ended a hunger strike and told relatives she wants to begin legal proceedings to win her freedom

    Comment:- Birtukan decision to use legal means to win her freedom is the right step to take for a legal opposition leader. Win or loose Birtukan using the court and legal venue will go a long way to help the democratization process and in the process her sincerity to respect the law of the land.
