The False Promise of Regime Change
(foreignaffairs.com) - Since the 1950s, the United States has tried to oust governments in the broader Middle East once every decade, on average. It has done so in Iran, Afghanistan (twice), Iraq, Egypt, Libya, and Syria - a list that includes only the instances in which the removal of a country's leaders and the transformation of its political system were the goals of U.S. policy...[Add to the List Ethiopia]

Letter from MQX ONE: Alien in Addis
Jihon 5 October 2020 - It seemed quite an ordinary August morning. I am living the routine. Is this your luggage to check in? Your ticket? And your ID card, please? While having the boarding pass processed and printed, the lady at the check-in counter offers me a verdict I least expected. "Sorry, your flight is cancelled; can you make it for the afternoon one?" This moderately young plain-faced lady in green Ethiopian Airlines uniform is clearly multitasked. A colleague, also all too green- green jacket and pants and...

Abiy, the double agent spy wants Tigray to secede
W.Yilma October,5/2020 - I closely follow Dr. Abiy’s actions since he came to power. The same as other Ethiopians who wish him to succeed, I gave him my full support, assuming that he is the man of his words. Above all my thought about him was, that because he is from the young generation, he will not follow the Machiavellian destructive politics what the old generation of the...

A Raptor, Circling the Captors!
Yared Huluf 10-05-20 - After many miscarriages and stillborns, Tigrai was at long last pregnant with and about to give birth to a vivacious child she was eager to rear and sustain come hell or high water, hoping that the child born would, in turn, lead her march safe through the dark tunnel, her detractors kept her under for centuries.bThis time Tigrai was certain, the price dearly paid looking after the child was ultimate but the child would raise her arms and guide her to the glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel and her eyes would wide open thereafter.

Tigrai TV(News): TPLF recalled all of its representatives from the House of Federation and the Lower House. It also declared the President has no legal ground to approve or endorse Abiy Ahmed's political appointees going forward! - Oct 5, 2020

The lady president should be ashamed. She is a chameleon. We never thought she will be a "yengese hulu nuguse" person. She should respect the people she is serving. Who does she think she is serving? The Oromo, Wolayita, Kemant Tigreans? Who?

Shining a Light on the Darkness: Thoughts on Democracy
Elias Dawit 10-04-20 - Every country experiences the ups and downs of democracy. Today, the United States is at a crossroads, faced with an executive branch overturning the guardrails of the Constitution and tramping on the rights of the American people. America’s current problems in holding a free and fair election, maintaining the independence of democratic institutions, upholding the Constitution, protecting rule of law, and holding back a creeping authoritarianism from the executive branch are not unknown in other parts of the world. Democracy is a constant work in progress.

Tigray Election: A Covenant with Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, & a Legal Mandate for Offense in Self-defense!
Hailemariam Abebe 10-04-20 - While amid an existential apocalypse, the people of Tigray have carried out what truly is a revolution first in the history not only of Tigray proper but in the African continent. At a time when a pandemic of both man-made and a function of nature, has posed the greatest threat to the very existence of the Tigrayan people, they have smashed fear into smithereens, put evil in its place, and voted for a government for the people whose mission it is not only to protect life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness but also with the legal mandate to go after those with contempt for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!

A call to the International Community from the office of Inter-Government Relations of the National Regional State of Tigray
The Tigrai National Regional State has been working for a peaceful and constitutional resolution of the political crisis engulfing the country. The response of the regime has never been constructive and forward looking. We would like to indicate that if the regime continues to escalate its provocations against the security and wellbeing of the Tigrai people, it will be solely responsible for the irreversible damage that may be caused on the unity and peace of the country.

TPLF, Elections & Repeated Miscalculations
Yene Gasha 10-04-20 - TPLF would be well-served to transparently expand its confidence-building exercises beyond the recent decision to apportion 15 non-voting parliamentary seats to opposition parties. Such measures will go a long way to accelerating the democratization effort and to building political opposition parties that are loyal to Tigray.

Dangerous Developments in the Ethiopian Political Environment
MTA (PhD) Toronto, Canada October 3, 2020. - Some attribute the volatility of Ethiopian politics to its beginning – the revolutionary era of the 1970s. Left-wing political ideals tuned to the Che Guevara-style political struggle seemed appropriate for a country that was languishing from poverty and all forms of human rights violations. Like Che, Ethiopia's young elites were radicalized by the poverty, hunger, and disease they witnessed among the country's majority population.

Ethiopian migrants describe "hell" of detention
An investigation by Amnesty International has exposed horrifying new details about the treatment of Ethiopian migrants detained in Saudi Arabia. Since March, Huthi authorities in Yemen have expelled thousands of Ethiopian migrant workers and their families to Saudi Arabia, where they are now being held in life-threatening conditions

Contemplating About Health Care Threats as Tigrai Shines and Rises with Industrialization and Urbanization
G. Amare, October 2, 2020 - The world is quickly becoming more industrialized, urbanized, and modernized as people migrate to cities (1). In 1950, less than 30% of the world population were living in an urban setting while today it is more than 50%. This is expected to grow to about 60% by the year 2025. At present, the greater majority of the Tigrai population are living in rural places. However, urbanization and industrialization are gradually growing

Ethiopia arrests 500 ahead of major Oromo festival
Authorities in Ethiopia's most populous state Oromia say they have arrested more than 500 people who they alleged were working to cause disturbances during the annual Irreecha thanksgiving festival, observed by the Oromo, the country's largest ethnic group.

What a turn of events! Irreecha is the same holiday that was exploited by Jawar and company with the help of politicians from the OPDO/EPRDF to topple the Hailemariam government. Much was said about Irreecha celebration at Bishoftu then, all false. Today, the very same people who now hold power could not and would not allow the proud people of Oromo to celebrate it peacefully. Imagine if this was done during the TPLF/EPRDF time! Abiy is utterly naked, his days are numbered. [Zeru Hagos Oct 1st, 2020]

Ethiopian Unveils COVID-19 Global Insurance Cover
Addis Ababa, 01 October 2020 - Ethiopian Airlines Group, the Largest Aviation Group in Africa, is pleased to announce that it will cover the medical insurance including repatriation, evacuation and quarantine costs related to COVID-19 as of 01st of October 2020 until 31st of March 2021. The coverage is applicable on all Ethiopian's international flights booked with the airline's tickets.

Ethiopia is facing a failed federal government. In a few days, the country will have no legal federal government. Many of its regions will also be without an elected government. Nevertheless, Ethiopian Airlines is one of the few institutions that will be honored and respected as a federal institution regardless. We hope this decision is reached based on a sound economic reason. We hope there are mechanisms in place to check cheaters who will file a claim.

Tik-Tok: Rising to the Occasion
Aesop 09/29/2020 - The time is ticking for Derg 2.0. The last supper of this regime, October 5, 2020, is fast approaching. This clique of jokers has a few days to ride or die. It has one last chance to wake up from its Machiavellian slumber. This clique has, inter alia, one major delusion: it assumes every political actor is a pseudo-Machiavellian like itself. Shimelis Abdisa said politics was like gambling. This delusion deceives Derg 2.0 to see every political maneuver in terms of a poker game..

UK Government's Response to Petition Against Human Rights Violations in Ethiopia by Abiy Ahmed Regime
Mekete Tigray 09/29/2020 - Following the Letter of Petition by Mekete Tigray UK to the UK Government on Abiy Ahmed's gross human rights violations in Ethiopia, the British Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office have responded. It now appears that the Western Governments are pressing the Abiy Regime for political dialogue and have accepted Tigray's peaceful election

Currency Changes and Economic Stabilization: The Ethiopian Experience
Prof Asayehgn Desta 09-29-20 - Though the currency is not backed by gold or silver, Ethiopians have been reasonably using birr banknotes and coins as a medium of exchange, as a unit of account, and for storing wealth. As a medium of exchange, the Ethiopian birr serves for buying and selling goods and services. As a unit of account, the birr is used to set a common standard for measuring relative worth of goods and services.
