Amhara TV: Amhara Region President Temesgen Tiruneh's Speech -Nov 2019
We have been waiting for any sane politicians from ADP to speak out loud against the injustice being committed in the Amhara region! Not sure who is who in ADP camp these days, but, the ANDM we know had too many good and smart politicians who persevered against all odds to save Ethiopia over the years. We have no idea where the Yohannes BuaYalew came from! President Temesgen you can change the current course and save the Region and Ethiopia! The people want peace!

Eritreans wait in vain for change after peace with Ethiopia Asmara (Eritrea) (AFP) - Eritrean taxi driver Mihreteab recalls brimming with hope in July 2018 when his country reached a peace agreement with neighbour and longtime foe Ethiopia. But a year and a half later, that hope has given way to disenchantment."I don't see any changes so far. People are still in jail and life is the same," he said while waiting for passengers on the main avenue in Asmara. Like other ordinary Eritreans who spoke to an AFP journalist during a rare visit to the famously closed-off country...
Is Abiy copying everything Isaias Afeworki did in Eritrea? We know Isaias closed the only University in the country a long time ago. Seriously, why is Abiy blaming students and the people when everyone knows the enablers of the current crisis are politicians themselves? The same group that championed the downfall of Hailemariam Desalegn is the same group behind the current unrest. A government that can not enforce the rule of law is a government not worthy of a single vote! Resign! Zeru Hagos Nov 15, 2019

More than half of sub-Saharan Africans lack access to electricity IN MOST PARTS of the world energy demand is growing too quickly to keep greenhouse-gas emissions within international targets, according to a report released today by the International Energy Agency (IEA), a think-tank.

EPRDF is Done and TPLF is Looking Ahead for a New Begining.
According to a reliable source, the dying EPRDF is planning to hold an executive meeting within days. A reliable source has confirmed to us PM Abiy is trying to salvage the dying front without TPLF. As you all know EPRDF as a front has been near death for a while! Abiy has been trying to form a new unitary/prosperity party without success until now.
According to our source, TPLF is ready to move on and forge a new partnership with federalist parties that respect the constitution and the rights of nations and nationalities. The road ahead is full of uncertainty but TPLF is ready to play its role in clearing the road for a new beginning in Ethiopian politics.
Our source told us the new proposed party and TPLF have two opposed political programs and there is no plan to join any sham meetings going forward. The only meeting it will attend is to finalize the breakup! Aigaforum Nov 13, 2019

Two pastors beheaded as violence against Christians flares in Ethiopia Two Ethiopian pastors have been beheaded in Sebeta, near the capital Addis Ababa, in an outburst of violence against Christians at the end of October, reported a Barnabas Fund contact. The contact said that the situation on the ground has become "quite challenging for Christians" and many churches have been burnt this year. Can some of you check the above story? The news source is not familiar to us and wants to make sure this is not an implanted story to trigger mass killing. Ethiopia is at its most vulnerable time and her enemies from far would not miss this chance to do more harm.
The Knowledge Revolution And Its Consequences It is said there are "no atheists in foxholes". When things get desperate we all like to imagine a better outcome on the other side of whatever nightmare is
being endured. It is also the case that when facing challenges, a natural reflex is to cling to beliefs installed in us at a young age.
Dethrone the 'Activists' Samuel Estefanous 11 November 2019 - We are openly courting mayhem-worse still-we are courting bloody disintegration lest we take heed of the unerring lessons of history. You will be surprised to learn how blood curling carnages have been induced by a bunch of irresponsible half-baked losers craving the limelight foolishly and vainly.
THE MIGRATION CRISIS Yohannes Gebresellasie (Ph.d) Addis Ababa 11-11-19 - The mass movement of people is arguably the biggest story of our time. Migration is by nature unpredictable. There are various causes of migration. Some of them are economic, social and political. For example, the reason behind voluntary migration may be of an economic nature while that of forced migration may be political.

I believe the award is not only for what you have done in the past, but it is also an encouragement for what you can do in the future. You now have the global and local support to transform Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa region and make
democracy and regard for human rights the new norm.
Doing Business 2020: Comparing Business Regulation in 190 Economies The Doing Business 2020 study shows that developing economies are catching up with developed economies in ease of doing business. Still, the gap remains wide. An entrepreneur in a low-income economy typically spends around 50 percent of the country’s per-capita income to launch a company, compared with just 4.2 percent for an entrepreneur in a highincome economy. Ethiopia is ranked 159 out of 190 countries!
The End of Neoliberalism and the Rebirth of History Even though Prof. Stigliz is writing in the context of the US debate about economic growth, development and democracy, it might be instructive to what is going on in our country today. In fact, it has a huge implication to a "philosophy" of Medemer. It is stunning to me how people easily fall for a charlatan philosopher who thinks the country is in crisis because of our poverty of philosophy. (from our email folder).
