Amnesty Warns Ethiopia, Rwanda Not to Trade Rights for Growth
NAIROBI - Amnesty International is concerned that Rwanda and Ethiopia are overlooking their commitments to human rights for the sake of economic growth.
In the past seven years, Ethiopia has sustained an 11 percent economic growth rate and substantially reduced poverty among its 83 million citizens.
The country has gone to great lengths to incorporate the United Nations Millennium Development Goals into its national policy, "
If we could have the ears of AI like the extreme oppositions do, we would have asked them, how can a poor country develop and register a remarkable economic growth with out good governance and democratic order? With out a democratic space for its people the economic success would not have been registered since Ethiopia relies heavy on its people(labour) and its land. In Ethiopia, we might add, you can not arm twist people to do what they do not want to do! Ask the small farmers who constitute the great majority how the economic growth came about! If we may add AI's commentary seems to be taken from the extremists mantra "we do not need food..."! "
"...The ongoing schism between Ginbot 7 leaders and members seems to have more fuel than we thought. The leadership seems determined to muzzle dissent at all cost...similar to their slogan of defeating EPRDF by all means!".

Ethiopia: How Meles/EPRDF Rules The Country
Meles Zenawi is the cleverest and most engaging president in Africa - at least when he talks to visiting outsiders. When he speaks to his fellow Ethiopians, he is severe and dogmatic.But he entertains western visitors with humour and irony, deploying a diffident, an absolute determination to control his country and its destiny, DuPont Unveils New Local Investments in Africa and Innovative Global Food Security Index

Ottawa: Hodge-podge Ethiopian Extreme Opposition upset one of their own!
(Aigaforum) May 20, 2012- The extremists’ camp from the Ethiopian Diaspora opposition has been congregating in Ottawa Canada(May 19-20 2012) to chart yet again a blue print for their struggle. The gathering in many ways seems to upstage Ginbot 7 and the OLF-half effort in creating an Ethiopia that is blessed by Isaias Afeworki.
