Ethiopian Mothers Loud Cry!
Mereja: Demeke Mekonnen Under Fire! Amhara are Speaking! Nov 2019
We normally do not comment on individuals unless the individual is a well-known activist or politician in the limelight. Demeke Mekonen was not such a person since he has been serving all three prime ministers and nothing he does seems not to bother him or trigger inner consciousness to force him retire or quit. To be honest with you, we thought when PM Hailemariam resigned he was also going to resign. Now that he is a number one accomplice of the disintegration of the country, we are forced to scribble this short comment and post the loud cries of the Amhara people, The proud people of the Amhara must know the power is in their hand. You can take your vote away from Demeke and his groups and Save Ethiopia!

San Jose, California. November 24, 2019: The last three years have been the most difficult time for our people in Ethiopia, especially so for the people of Tigray. The government, the extremist opposition parties, and their media outlets have been blackmailing and blaming the people of Tigray for all real and perceived wrongdoings of the Ethiopian government. ...

The Merger having collapsed, Let us now focus on what Matters most to the Democratic Transition Tsegaye Regassa Ararssa 11-21-19 - The fact that TPLF has stepped out of the EPP project has made matters easy for everyone. Now, legally, the evolution (i.e., merger) of EPRDF parties into EPP has officially failed. The merger process has collapsed. PM Abiy can now go ahead and form his new party as he is free to do that.However, he can't any more use the various organs of EPRDF to do that. Moreover, he cannot dissolve the parties that are members of the EPRDF coalition by mere fiat. Note: In today's meeting of the late EPRDF leftover group, Abbo Lemma Mufriyat and Mustefe were not present according to KMN.
Is political back-and-forth between the authors of (E) PP and the TPLF inevitable? Gebrehiwot Hadush, Mekelle University, PhD student at KULeuven, Belgium 11-21-19 - (E) PP is an offshoot of the most ambivalent politics of 'Wuhid' party that has entertained big like by a unionist and big dislike by nationalists and advocates of strong states. The English version is even much controversial. The Abiy camp uses the term...
Saving the Ethiopian Airlines from Economic Predators Buruke Alemayehu November 20, 2019 - Ethiopian Airlines is facing privatization-a neoliberal action-justified based on property rights. To its proponents, privatization begets economic development-no matter what the "short term" pain might be. But to the opponent of privatization of the common goods, such as this writer, it can come at too high a price to be paid by the majority of a people.

Transforming Ethiopia's Developmental State Model for Future Dynamism: A BOOK SUMMARY A. Desta 11-20-19 -

FYI: Although the State media reported only six people opposed the transformation of EPRDF to EPP or PP, we have heard from a reliable source few from the Opdo/ODP and Southern People did not vote with a YES. The much-circulated picture from the meeting that shows Abbo Lemma and others raising their hands is a vote for setting the agenda for the day! Aigaforum Nov 20, 2019
TPLF was ready to discuss the study paper on transforming EPRDF into a single party but Abiy insisted everyone accept the idea without discussion and seeing the bylaw.
Although the media was told only 6 members rejected the idea, he knew more people did not vote yes!
TPLF wanted the agenda to be more on restoring peace and managing the deteriorating political and economic situation of the country.
The process to dissolve EPRDF is a long process.
WHAT ARE UNIVERSITIES FOR? Yohannes Gebresellasie (Ph.d) ADDIS ABABA Nov 20, 2019 - Ethiopia has been envied by many nations for unity in diversity and for tolerance. Within the Ethiopian context therefore, differences in language, race and religion add color and beauty and not become causes for anarchy, destruction and lawlessness because those differences cannot take...
Ever tried revenge honey? It tastes good
The landscape of northern Ethiopia has been transformed over the last three decades by a regreening project that has turned degraded land into forest. This has had a positive impact on water supplies, and on wildlife - including bees. We're walking among the mature trees in the tree garden when they attack. It is totally unexpected and extraordinarily frightening.
