  • Opinion: The Qilinto Massacre: the truth shall be revealed

    On Saturday, September 3rd 2016, something sinister, ghastly, premeditated and honestly speaking somewhat poorly calculated, transpired in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Abeba. The tragedy in question has, for the most part, managed to avoid the sort of outcry and global condemnation these incidents tend to get when the actors involved are from nations not allied with the United States and its NATO affiliates in their “war on terror.” It has been more than two weeks, and already we are faced with subliminal calls from the conceited to pretend it didn’t happen.

  • Growing Protests Bring Ethiopia to the Tipping Point - Sept. 2016


    The past weeks have seen an escalation of ongoing protests across Ethiopia—including widespread acts of resistance like citizens shaving their heads in solidarity with jailed opposition leader Bekele Gerba and stay-at-home protests that have turned bustling cities into near ghost-towns. Despite the undeniable peacefulness of these actions, state violence and repression has continued. Earlier this month, Ethiopia’s Prime Minister authorized the National Defence Force to use “its full force to bring rule of law” in the country. Internet shut downs by the government have been used to silence critics. And,  Addis Standard reported, security forces have broken into the homes of those who are “staying in.”

  • Ethiopian Kiwis welcome support of New Zealand parliament

    or immediate release 8 September, 2016

    Ethiopian Kiwis welcome support of New Zealand parliament

    Ethiopian origin New Zealanders welcome a motion read in Parliament today that challenges the Ethiopian governments killing of civilians.

    One hundred Ethiopian kiwis and supporters marched from Civic Square to Parliament to deliver the message of support for justice and human rights.

    They were met at Parliament by Labour deputy leader Annette King who announced that she had tabled the motion for New Zealand to speak out.

    King asked that “this House call on the Government of New Zealand to speak out at the Security Council of the United Nations on behalf of Ethiopian men, women, and children who are being killed, shot, burnt, and imprisoned by the Government of Ethiopia.”

    Human Rights Watch have reported that more than 400 people, mostly from the Oromo ethnic group, have been killed in this year.

    “We urge you all to be a voice for voiceless Ethiopians. We urge the New Zealand government and opposition parties to condemn and demand an immediate halt to the killings” said Nureddin Abdurahman of Oromo Community, one of the organisers for the march.

    New Zealand currently holds the presidency of the Security Council. When New Zealand’s temporary place on the Security Council ends in December, Ethiopia is one of the countries that will replace it.

    New Zealand is home to more than one-thousand five hundred Ethiopians, most of whom came to New Zealand under the refugee quota in the last 25 years.

  • The ‘Ethiopian Spring’: “Killing is not an answer to our grievances”


    The Ethiopian leadership remains in denial. The long meetings of its ruling bodies have culminated in a report on 15 years of national “rebirth”, in which it awards itself good marks, while acknowledging the existence of a few problems here and there.

    Nonetheless, the odd warning signal may be heard – though very seldom – in counterpoint to the general complacency. Hailemariam Desalegn, prime minister and chairman of what is essentially the single party, has gone so far as to warn that the issues facing the regime are a matter of “life or death”,[1] and that Ethiopia is “sliding towards ethnic conflict similar to that in neighbouring countries”.[2]
