Against Political Demonstrations in Ethiopia : In favor of election participation

In all of Ethiopia’s modern history, I know of no single instance where any political organization coming into power through such political agitation. The one instance that is often mentioned by people is the student movement of the 1960s and 1970s, which did not empower any civilian political organization to acquire power, but led to a disastrous political turmoil resulting in a brutal military regime taking over the Imperial Ethiopian Government and that, proceeded to ravage Ethiopia for seventeen years

The threat of Eritrean refugees to the security and social fabric of Ethiopia

The threat of Eritrean refugees to the security and social fabric of Ethiopia

We can safely assume then 98% of those coming to Ethiopia as refugees have some type of military training. The Eritrean regime is not waiting to be drained of its potential man power and bleed to death alive. It has a few pretty good tricks on its sleeves and it would not hesitate to use them.

After the Eritrean invasion of Ethiopia in 1998 failed and the invading army of Shaebiya was decimated by the gallant Ethiopian defense forces, the regime in Asmara never stopped for a day actively trying to disintegrate Ethiopia.

Alzheimer’s risk is higher in African Americans, but many fear clinical studies

Studies show that older African Americans are almost twice as likely as whites to develop Alzheimer’s disease for genetic, biological and socioeconomic reasons. Yet relatively few African Americans want to talk about Alzheimer’s, which is the leading cause of dementia. For historical reasons, even fewer want to participate in clinical research trials that could deliver benefits to themselves and future generations. Reisa A. Sperling, professor of neurology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, is quoted. Sperling is the principal investigator of a study involving 60 sites in the United States,

My Tribute to the Victims of Mengistu Hailemariam and His Bloody Collaborators

This form of devotion shown by Girma and his compatriots in their making sure that we remember the victims of the Derg far exceeds the raving and ranting of Diaspora politicians in their blind pursuit of political power by shouting and flinging insults and invalid rhetorical arguments et cetera. Not long ago, I wrote about my disgust with the Ethiopian Government pardoning of some twenty high ranking convicted Derg Officials some three years ago. I consider such pardon to be unjust and a violation of the rights of the victims and a permanent threat to our humanity. We are hypocrites to the bone. Those Derg Officials, now pardoned, had murdered and tortured countless innocent Ethiopians from 1974 to 1991 when they were in power. They showed no mercy or any humane consideration to any of their victims. Let me state again that the blood that was socking Mengistu’s hands and the hands of the convicted Derg Officials, released from prison, was not that of dogs, but of human beings—of our heroes and our fellow Ethiopians. [This article is adopted from my article of a couple of years ago:”The Courage to Swallow the Bitter Truth: A Response and a Cure.”

A GLIMPSE OF OUR SITUATION– By Professor Tecola W Hagos

A GLIMPSE OF OUR SITUATION– By Professor Tecola W Hagos

The storming of the Ethiopian Embassy, the desecration of the official Ethiopian Flag or insignia is beyond any protesters legitimate reach. No matter what symbol is attached to our Ethiopian colors, I am extremely offended by the juvenile behavior of a few protesters who tore down our colors/flag at our Ethiopian Embassy grounds; I repeat “our Ethiopian Embassy grounds.”
