Rights group: Ethiopia denying opposition aid
NAIROBI, Kenya – Human Rights Watch says in a new report Ethiopia is denying opposition supporters food and other aid in a widespread effort to suppress political dissent.

Comment-The Lords of Poverty must be running the last marathon to save their feeding line and force Ethiopia to change the CSO law! If you read the report, if one can call it a report, it is all about the CSO law Ethiopia passed last year! Poor HRW, it did not even try hard to show it has done its own homework on this allegation! This report is hardly any different than what MEDREK alleged during the last Ethiopian election. What is the relationship between MEDREK and HRW anyways; they both have produced a report! Go figure!
While Ethiopia is going all out to stamp out poverty with the Growth and Transformation plan, HRW is talking about a sterilized wheat politics! The Lords of Poverty will continue the smear campaign using Gibe III and Wheat politics of today or quarter century ago. We can only stop them if we succeed with the Growth and Transformation plan.
