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.
-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!
