By Asefa Tola | March 10, 2007 Over the last few decades, the role played by Ethiopians in the Diaspora has a profound effect on the internal politics of our country. From introducing various kinds of political philosophies and ideologies, to organizing and leading political parties, establishing Liberation Fronts, the Diaspora has stamped some positive […]

Comments on Dr Yakob’s Letter from Prison Regarding TPLF’s Justice System

By Bekele Habte I have a great respect for all Ethiopia’s heroes and heroines who are languishing in TPLF’s dungeons on trumped up charges and those who sacrificed their irreplaceable life for the betterment of Ethiopia. It is clear that they committed no crime what so ever. Their only crime is their stand for what […]

The Army in Somalia: Is it TPLF’s or Ethiopian Army?

By Asrat Menilik

It is a public knowledge that the Army is going through turmoil since the May/05 General Election. Many were arrested, many were dismissed, many were disappeared and some have managed to flee. As it was the case in the civilian population, the turmoil in the army is still going on. From these observations, it is fair to conclude that, the Army as well was affected by Meles’ blatant daytime robbery of the Ethiopian people’s vote. The Army has witnessed when the Ethiopian people made history through their vote by unanimously and decisively rejecting murderer Meles and his ruthless regime.

Is there a case to renegotiate AFD? Part 2

By Asrat Menilik

E. Is AFD giving a new lease of life for ethnic politics?

During the May/05 General Election, I think, it is fair to conclude that, the Ethiopian people have spoken their mind clearly and decisively against TPLF’s ethnocentric policy. The people have reaffirmed their indivisible Ethiopianness and rejected ethnic politics in whatever form at the same time. In short, what transpired during the election is that it is not only TPLF that was defeated but also its long held ideology of divide and rule using ethnic politics. CUDP’s election victory heralded the dawn of a new era; a new era and hope for

Is there a case to renegotiate AFD? Part 1

By Asrat Menilik

1. Introduction:

The primary purpose of this article is to highlight, as it stands now, the fundamental flaws of AFD from Pan-Ethiopians point of view. Like wise, in light of the separatist movements’ long standing objectives and principle, I would also try to show that they have absolutely nothing fundamental to complain about AFD.
