TV Tigrai - Amharic - The government is on a dangerous path! Dec 14, 2018
The federal government of Ethiopia is becoming extremely reckless by allowing the continued killing and displacement of the Qimant people in northwestern Amhara Region. To make it worst the federal government is allowing poisonous propaganda to be aired over government-owned media against "Tigrigna speaking people"! This heroic lady stood up in front of Gedu Andargachew delegation in Seattle Washington, the USA on Dec 2018 to speak on behalf of the persecuted Qimant people. People's call must be heard else they will revolt to be heard! Kudos to those who posted the clip. Dec 12, 2018!
VOA Tigrigna: Liya Kassa Tigrai government communication head- Dec 10 2018
We heard some social media pundits from "demur" camp are belittling the reason ten of thousands of Tigreans came out in mass to a demonstration against injustice the other day! They said they [demonstrators] came out to protect an individual! We understand the "demur" camp are living in utopia land but unless the individual they are dying to get hold of is Jesus Christ or the Prophet Mohamed it is unimaginable such huge crowd will be gathered together to voice their anger against his persecution!. Shet Meanta! The second time cannot be harder than the first!

Is Abiy Ahmed a Follower of Protestant Christian Faith? Haile Tessema, Dec. 2018 - Despite having a Muslim father, PM Abiy is apparently a Christian. In speeches he made; seen on video humbly kneeling down at the foot of a self-proclaimed prophetess to obtain her blessing (before his coming to power) as well as attending a church service (since taking office), he has made no secret of his Protestant faith.

Ethnic violence in southern Ethiopia kills 21, wounds 61 ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - Heavy fighting between ethnic groups in southern Ethiopia has killed at least 21 people and wounded 61, its state news agency said on Saturday, amid escalating violence that has sent hundreds fleeing across the border to neighboring Kenya. The same ethnic killing is happening in Amhara Region with the Qimant people but no one is reporting! How cruel is the Abiy government to give a deaf ear to all the killings? Why is God mad at Ethiopia?

Ethiopia's Torture Problem and the Court of Public Opinion The airing of Tuesday's torture documentary came several weeks after another documentary appeared on state television involving state-owned Metals and Engineering Corporation (METEC).
While this may signal a new commitment to justice, the government should avoid the past practice of using these documentaries to undermine defendants' right to a fair trial by mobilizing the public to support a judiciary that was far from independent of state control. Human Rights Watch and others have continually stressed the importance of accountability and justice but trials not turned into politicized shows targeting those seen to be opposed to the government and its policies, Even HRW, staunch supporter of the Abiy government can't hide its displeasure! HRW in a way is wholeheartedly agreeing with the Tigrai demonstrators!

The Grave Danger of unbridled hatred: Is there a stop to the madness? Zekarias Ezra 12-13-18 - It was a mere 30 years or so ago that Ethiopians were living under a military dictatorship camouflaged as a democratic republic. Beginning with the massacre of the 60 high government officials, the Derg continued what it did best - killing anyone that it perceived as a threat to its power. The killing program, dubbed, Red Terror, claimed, by some accounts, as many as 500,000 Ethiopians.
