Nehnan Jeganunan: The Story!

One thing we are pleasantly surprised about the Derg regime is that how it has managed to preserve its atrocities. The following story is a story of our Jeganuna . The story is about heroic TPLF/EPRDF Fighters who fell in to the hands of the Derg. Listen to Amora being interviewed by the then Derg functionaries. Listen to Amora’s unwavering stand and courage even though he knew death was around the corner! After you have listened, close your eyes and try to understand what went in to the struggle to bring today’s democracy in Ethiopia. Try if you can, to understand Amora’s words with that of Medrek ‘s and those trying to undo Article 39!
To Amora’s mother and all the other 13 Mothers of our Jeganuna, we thank you!!!!
  jeganuna!!
(amharic, dimtsi woyane)



To all who email us, telling us to keep it up, we promise we will, no other choice except to honor Amora's last word! We hope to get the DVD copy and share it with all of you also.Meantime enjoy this song about the epic battle where Amora's chapter story started...
