ወደ ኢትዮጵያ ለነፃነት: ባርነትን ከሚያላምደን የተቃውሞ ትግል እንላቀቅ !

ዓለም አቀፍ የኢትዮጵያ ሴቶች ድርጅት፣ሰሞኑን በወገኖችችን ላይ በደረሰው እና  እየደረሰ ባለው ጥቃት ጥልቅ ሃዘን እና ቁጭት  ተሰምቶናል። የዛሬውም ልዩ ጥሪያያችን ለመከራችን ምንጭና መነሻ የሆነውን ኃይል የትግሬ ነፃ አውጭ ግንባር  ከስልጣን ማስወገድ ዋና እና ቀዳሚ የመፍትሄ ተግባራችን ሊሆን እንደሚገባ  ለማሳሰብ ነው።

እኛ ኢትዮጵያውያን አገራችንን እና ወገናችን የምንወድ  ሩህሩህ እና አዛኝ ሕዝብ ነን። በወገን ላይ መከራና ስቃይ ፣ግፍና ሞት ሲደርስበት በጣም እናዝናለን ፣እናለቅሳለን ፣ሆኖም ግን የዚህ ዓይነቱ  ችግር እና ሰቆቃ  እንዳይደርስብን  ተገቢውን  ንቃትና  ጥንቃቄ  አናደርግም፤ግፍና መከራም በሚከስትበትም  ግዜ በአስቸኳይ  መከራውን የሚያስቆም  ቆራጥ  እርምጃ  አንወስድም። ይህ አንዱ አሳሳቢና መቀየር ያለበት ነባራዊ ዕውነታ ነው ። ለዚህም ነው ለዘመናዊው  ቀስ  በቀስ  ባርነትንና  የበታችነትን ከሚያላምደን  የተኮላሸ የተቃውሞ  የትግል  ስልት እንላቀቅ የምንለው::

እስከዛሬ ሰልፍ  ወጥተናል ፣መግለጫ የያዙ ደብዳቤዎች ጽፈናል፣ ይመለከታቸዋል  ላልናቸው የዓለም መንግስታት እና   ዓለማቀፋዊ ተቋማት  አቤት ብለን  አመልክተናል ፣በአንጻሩ የኢትዮጵያውያን መከራና ሰቆቃ እንዲሁም ብሔራዊ ውርደት እየጨመረ መጣ እንጂ መፍትሄ  አልሆነንም። ወገኖቻችን በገሃድ በየአደባባይ ይደፈራሉ ይቀጠቀጣሉ፣እየታፈኑ ወዳልታወቀ ሥፍራ ይወሰዳሉ፣ ይታረዳሉ ፤ አቤት ባይ የራስ መንግስት የለንም ፣ ዓለም አቀፍ ተቋማት፣ የሰብዓዊ መብት ተከራካሪ ነን ባይ ድርጅቶች እንዲሁም ዓለም አቀፍ የዜና አውታሮች ፣ ሁሉም አንድ ላይ ያደሙ ይመስላል፣ አላየንም አልሰማንምን  መርጠዋል፤ ይህ ለእንኛ እንግዳ ና አዲስ ሊሆን የሚገባ ጉዳይ አይደለም ፣በሁለተኛው የዓለም ጦርነት መነሻ ላይ ጣልያን አገራችንን በወረረች ግዜም ሊግ ኦፍ ኔሽን የተባለው  እና የዛሬው የተባበሩት መንግስታት ድርጅት  አባል ሀገሮች  አብዛኛዎቹ ፈታቸውን አዙረውብን  ከጣልያን ፋሽስቶች ጎን ቆመው  እንደነበረና ፣አርበኞቻችን ከውስጥ ባንዳዎቹ የዛሬ ገዢዎቻችን  ወላጆች እና ወራሪ ፋሽስቶች ጋር ጉሮሮ ለጉሮሮ ተናንቀው በጀግንነት ነጻነታችንን ማስከበራቸው  በታሪክ ተመዝግቦ የሚገኝ እውነታ ነው። ይህም ድል የተገኘው በራሱ የሚተማመንና ለራሱ ማንነት ከፍተኛ ዋጋ የሚሰጥ ሕዝብ ስለነበረ ነው።

ስለዚህ ይህን መከራና ውርደት የሚያስቆም ለውጥ ለማምጣት ሁለት ነባራዊ ሁኔታዎች መቀየር አለባቸው ። አንደኛው እስከዛሬ  የተለመደውና  የሚመቸንን መፍትሄ ቢስ የተቃውሞ ሂደትን መቀየር ሲሆን ፣ሁለተኛው እየተባባሰ የመጣውን የኢትዮጵያውያንን  ስቃይና መከራ በፍጥነት  ማስቆም ነው። ይህም ተልዕኮ የሚሳካው ፣የችግራችን ምንጭ የሆነውን ሕዝብን እና አገርን ለባርነት ገበያ አቅራቢውን ደላላ የትግሬ ነፃ አውጭ ግንባር በኃይል ስናስወግድ ብቻ ነው። ይህን  በዋናነት ውጤታማ ለማድረግ የሚቻለውም የችግሩ ገፈት ቀማሽ የሆነው ኢትዮጵያዊ ኃይል ሲነሳ ብቻ ነው። ይህም የሚሳካው ኢትዮጵያውያን ለራሳቻው ነፍስና ሕይወት ዋጋና ክብር ሲሰ ነው።ከታሪካችን  እና ከአርበኞቻችን  ታሪካዊ ገድል በመማር  ውጤት አልባ ተግባር ላይ ተሰማርተን ከመባዘን  ወይም ለተወሰነ  ግዜያዊ የቁጣ ማብረጃና የፖለቲካ ፍጆታ ከማሙዋላት ውጭ የህብረተሰባችንን  መሠረታዊ ችግር  በማይፈታ፣ ባርነትን ከሚያላምደን  የትግል ስልት መላቀቅ አለብን። በመላው ዓለም የተቃውሞ ድምጻችንን ማሰማታችን ለተበደሉ ወገኖቻችን ድምጽ መሆናችን ተገቢ ተግባር ሆኖ ሳለ የሰቆቃ ህይወታችንን ግን እንደማይለውጠው በጽኑ ልንረዳ ይገባል። ይህ ዕውነታ የሚለወጠው የችግሩን ምንጭ ስናደርቅ ብቻ ነው ይህ ዓለም አቀፋዊ ችግራችን የአገር ውስጥ ነባራዊ ሁኔታ ነጸብራቅና ተቀጥላ መሆኑን በመገንዘብ የችግሩን መሰረት ማስወገድ  አስፈላጊና ወሳኝ ነው። አማራጩ ከነፃነት ወዳጅ እና ቆራት የሆኑ ሕዝቦች የትግል ስልት በመማር ዋና የሰቆቃችንን መንስኤ የሆነውን የትግሬ ነጻ አውጭ ግንባርን በአስቸኳይ አስወግዶ በምትኩ በሕዝብ ፈቃድ ወደ ስልጣን የሚመጣ  ኢትዮጵያዊ ስርዓተ መንግስት መገንባት የሚሰችልን ሁለገብ ቆራጥ ትግል ማድረግ ብቻ ነው

ለዚህም ክቡር አላማ ባአገራችን ውስጥ  በቆራጥነት  እንድንታገል ዓለም አቀፍ የኢትዮጵያ ሴቶች ድርጅት ለሁሉም የሕብረተሰቡ ክፍል የትብብር ጥሪ እናቀርባለን። የህልውናችን ወሳኝ ኃይል ፈጣሪያችን እና እኛ ብቻ መሆናችንን ስንገነዘብ ያለመስዋዕትነት የለም ነፃነት ብለን ቆርጠን እንነሳለን።

Press Release IEWO Calls upon all Ethiopians and Human Right Activists to Stand in Solidarity with Reeyot Alemu 

International Ethiopian Women’s Organization (IEWO) stands proudly and courageously in solidarity with Reeyot Alemu, one of the very few heroins Ethiopian women of our time who is imprisoned by the TPLF regime for standing up for human rights and for defending freedom of speech. Her basic rights are gravely violated to the extent that she has been denied to get the necessary treatment that is very much needed for her essential wellness and she is also continually mistreated and subjected to mental anguish and psychological harassment.  

Reeyot Alemu has neither committed a crime nor is a terrorist as the regime tries to misinform the public. Reeyot was arrested on June 21, 2011, and falsely accused of conspiring to commit terrorist act and was sentenced to 5 years of imprisonment. She was sentenced of  a crime she never committed other than expressing her freedom of speech and defending her rights. Reeyot Alemu is a young Ethiopian woman with a great personal integrity who stands firmly on her ground of truth. She refused to admit guilt which she never committed in exchange for clemency. Reeyot is a courageous woman of dignity and a role model for many Ethiopian women.

It is in this light that IEWO calls upon all Ethiopians and international human right activists to join us in condemning the unjust imprisonment and continued brutal treatment that Reeyot Alemu is facing in prison.

 Thus, as part of the solidarity initiative for Reeyot Alemu, IEWO calls upon all Ethiopians and the international community at large to:

·         Support the demand for the immediate release of Reeyot Alemu and all other political prisoners; and denounce the brutal and inhuman treatment of political prisoners by the regime
.
 ·         Hold the TPLF regime accountable for its gross violation of human rights, genocide, crime against humanity and the ongoing widespread dehumanizing social conditions in Ethiopia.
 ·         Urge those forces that are actively helping and sustaining the life of the repressive regime to stop supporting and realize the grave consequences of being accomplice to the act of the regime.
·         Show solidarity and stand with Reeyot Alemu and all political prisoners in action by boycotting the TPLF regime politically and economically; boycott all products and services and cut off the financial blood- line that is used by the regime to oppress and imprison thousands of innocent Ethiopians. 
 ·         Unite all concerned and conscious Ethiopian women worldwide and forge a collaborative spirit and a unity of action to promote the rights of Ethiopian women in general and to demand the Freedom of Reeyot Alemu and all political prisoners in Ethiopia.

Free Reeyot Alemu and all Political Prisoners! 
Victory to the Ethiopian people!

አገራችን ኢትዮጵያ በአሁኑ ግዜ የምትገኝበት ነባራዊ ሁኔታ፣ ለብሔራዊ የጋራ ሕልውናዋ ሆነ የሕዝቧ ደህንነት ከመቼውም ግዜ በበለጠ በከፍተኛ ደረጃ አሳሳቢና አስጊ ወቅት ላይ ደርሷል ቢባል ማጋነን አይሆንም። ከመንጋቱ በፊት ይጨልማል ነውና ፣ለጨለማ ግዜ የዳረገን ሁኔታ ውስጥ እንገኛለን። ሆኖም ከጨለማ ወደ ብረሃን መሸጋገር አይቀርም እና ከተሸጋገርን በዃላ ግን ይዘን መገኘት ያለብንን ብሔራዊ እሴቶች እንዳናጣ ከወዲሁ በሁሉም ረገድ ከፍተኛ ጥንቃቄ ልናደርግ ይገባናል። ከታሪክ እንደምንረዳው ሕዝብንና  የራስን ማንነት ማጣት ይኖራልና የወያኔ ዘረኛ የጎሳ አገዛዝ በአጠቃላይ በኢትዮጵያ ሕዝብ ላይ በሴቶች ፣በክርስትናና በእስልምና ሐይማኖት ቋሞች በተለይም ደግሞ በቅርቡ በዐማራው ማህበረሰብ ላይ የሚፈጽመውን ግፍ ማፈናቀልና የዘር ማጽዳት  ዘመቻ ባስቸኳይ  ካልተገታ ለትውልድ የሚተላለፍ ቀውስና ጥፍት ከፊታችን ተደቅኖ የሚጠብቀን መራራ ሃቅ ነው

እንደሚታወቀው ወያኔ የትግሬ ነጻ አውጭ ግንባር የኢትዮጵያን ሕዝብ አንድነት ለማፍረስና አገራችንን ለመበተን ከነደፋቸው እቅዶች ውስጥ ቀዳሚ ቦታ ከያዙት አንዱና ዋነኛው የዐማራውን ማህበረሰብ በጠላትነት ፈርጆ ማጥቃት ፣ማዳከምና ማጥፋት የሚለው ዓላማ ነው። በዓላማቸውም መሠረት ላለፉት ሃያ አንድ ዓመታት በዐማራው ማህበረሰብ ላይ ይነጣጠር የነበረው ጥቃት ዛሬ በስፋትና በጥልቀት ተፋፍሞ አሳሳቢና አደገኛ በሆነ ደረጃ በመካሄድ ላይ ነው። ላለፉት ጥቂት ወራት  በተለያዩ የአገራችን ግዛት ውስጥ የሚኖሩትን የዐማራው ማህበረሰብ ኢትዮጵያውያን  ከኑሮዋቸውና ከቤታቸው በማፈናቀል የህልውና መብታቸው ተገፎ ኢሰብአዊ የሆነ ጥቃት እየተካሄደባቸው ነው። በብዙ ሺህ የሚቆጠሩ ህጻናትና ሴቶች የመከራው ገፈት ቀማሽ እንደመሆናቸው ሁሉ ለአሰቃቂ ችግርና እንግልት ተዳርገዋል። በአንጻሩ ግን የኢትዮጵያ መሬት ለባእዳን አገሮች በገፍ እየተቸረቸረ ኢትዮጵያውያን ግን ዐማራ  ስለሆኑ ብቻ ከመሪታቸው ተፈናቅለው ለዱርና ለመንገድ አዳሪነት ተዳርገዋል፣መሠረታዊ የመኖር መብታቸውን ተቀምተዋል።

ዛሬ የዐማራው ማህበረሰብ ለወያኔ ዘረኛ የጎሳ አገዛዝ የተቀነባበረ ኢትዮጵያዊነትን የመበተን እቅድ  ውስጥ ዋናውን ቦታ የያዘ ኢላማ ይሁን እንጂ ነገ በሌሎች ኢትዮጵያውያን ላይ የሚከሰት መሆኑ የወያኔ ተግባራዊ ባህሪ ያረጋገጠው ሃቅ ነው።ይህን አገር የማፍረስና ሕዝብን የማፈናቀል ሂደት ባስቸኳይ ማስቆም ፣ለዚህም ችግርና መከራ የዳረገንን የወያኔ ዘረኛ ሥርዓትን ከመሠረቱ መንቅሎ ማስወገድ አማራጭ የሌለው የወቅቱ የኢትዮጵያውያን ተግባር ሊሆን ይገባል። ስለዚህም ይህን ተግባር ከግቡ ለማድረስ ኢትዮጵያዊነትን ማዕከል ያደረጉ የፖለቲካ ድርጅቶች ፣ንቅናቄዎች ፣የብዙሃንና የሞያ ማህበርት ሁሉ በሓይማኖት፣ በቋንቋ ፣በጎሳ፣ ሳንለያይ በዐማራው ማህበረሰብ ላይ የሚደርሰውን ኢሰብአዊ ድርጊት በማውገዝ ችግሩ የጋራ መሆኑን በመገንዘብ ሙሉ ድጋፋቸውንና ትብብራቸውን  መግለጽ ተገቢ ይሆናል። እንደሌሎች ኢትዮጵያዊ ጥያቄዎች የዐማራው ማህበረሰብ ችግርና ጥያቄ የሁሉም ኢትዮጵያዊ ጉዳይና ጥያቄ ነው

በዐማራው ማህበረሰብ ላይ የሚካሄደው የመበተንና ዘር  የማጥፋት ጥቃት በሁሉም ኢትዮጵያዊ ላይ የተሰነዘረ ጥቃት መሆኑን በመገንዘብ ፣ በአንድ ድምጽ ድርጊቱን ማውገዝና ማስቆም የትግላችን አንደኛው ገጽታና አጣዳፊ የጋራ ተግባር ነው። ጥቃቱ በቀጥታም ሆነ በተዘዋዋሪ የሚያስከትለው አደጋ በዐማራው ማህበረሰብ ላይ ብቻ ሳይወሰን በጋራ ህልውናችንና ደህንነታችን ላይ ጭምር ነው። ባጠቃላይ በአገራችን ላይ በተለይም ሰሞኑን በሓይማኖት ተቋሞችና  በዐማራው ማህበረሰብ ላይ የሚፈጸመውን ግፍና ወንጀል ለማስቆም በሚደረገው ትግል የሴቶች በሙሉ ወሳኝነት መሳተፍ አማራጭ የሌለው ታሪካዊ ግዴታ ነው። የሴቶች መብት ያለ አገር ህልውና ሊከበር ስለማይችል አገርን ለማዳንም የሴቶች ሚና ወሳኝ መሆኑን በመገንዘብ በዚህ አሳሳቢ ወቅት በድጋሚ ዓለም አቀፍ የኢትዮጵያ ሴቶች ድርጅት ለኢትዮጵያውያን ሁሉ  የተግባራዊ ትብብርና የድጋፍ ጥሪ እናስተላልፋለን።

A call for a unified action

አለም ዓቀፍ የኢትዮጵያ ሴቶች ድርጅት
ልዩና ወቅታዊ ጥሪ ለመላ ኢትዮጵያውያን በሙሉ

ኢትዮጵያ አገራችን ለብዙ ሺህ ዘመናት ከውጭ ወራሪና ቅኝ አገዛዝ ራስዋን ነጻ አድርጋ ሉዓላዊነትዋንም አስጠብቃ የኖረች አገር ነች። በመሆንዋም በዓለም ዙሪያ በተለይም በጥቁር ህዝቦች የነጻነት ጮራና ኩራት ሆናለች፣የረቀቀ ባህልና ዕውቀት እንዲሁም የሰው ዘር ምንጭና መገኛ በመሆንዋም በዓለም የስልጣኔ እናት በመባል ታውቃለች። ሆኖም ግን ዛሬ አግራችን ያለችበት ተጨባች ሁኔታ ይህን ታሪካዊ እውነታ ከማንጸባረቅ እጅግ የራቀ ነው። ለዚህም ብሄራዊ ክብር መራቆትና ድህነት የዳረጋት የትግሬ ነጻ አውጭ ግምባር የወያኔ21 ዓመት የጎሳ አገዛዝ መሆኑ ለሁሉም ግልጽ ነው።

በአሁኑ ግዜ የአገራችን ግዛታዊ ሉዓላዊነት ብሄራዊ አንድነት ተናግቶ ከዓለም ድሆች ቀዳሚ ቦታን ይዛ ትገኛለች። ሰፊው ህዝብዋ ኢፍትሃዊ አስተዳደር በድህነት ፣በረሃብ ፣በውርደትና በስደት ይማቅቃል። የኢትዮጵያ ህዝብ ኢሰብአዊ በሆነው የወያኔ የጎሳ ስርዓት ምክንያት ለውስጥም ሆነለውጭ ኃያላን ብዝበዛና ጭቆና ሰለባ ሆኗል። በገጠርም በከተማም በርካታ ህዝብ ከመሬቱና ከቤቱ በመፈናቀል ለስደት ተዳርጓል። ወደ ውጭ ሀገር በማደጎ ስም የሚላኩት ህጻናት ቁጥር በአሳሳቢ ሁኔታ ጨምሯል ፤ በብዙ ሺህ የሚቆጠሩ ኢትዮጵያውያን ሴቶች በመካከለኛው ምስራቅ የሰው ልጅን ስብዕና በከፍተኛ ደረጃ በሚደፍርና በሚጎዳ ዘመናዊ ባርነት ውስጥ ይገኛሉ። ድህነትንና ኢሰብአዊ አስተዳደርን ለመሸሽ ኢትዮጵያኖች ከአገራቸው እንዲወጡ ሲሆን በአንጻሩ በብዙሺህ የሚቆጠሩ የውጭ ሀገር ሰዎች ወደ ሀገራችን በመግባት ኢትዮጵያኖች የተነፈጉትን የተመቸና የተደላደለ ኑሮ ይኖራሉ። አልፎም ለዘላቂ የባለቤትነትና የበላይነት ስፍራ ለመያዝ የሚያስችላቸውን ሁኔታዎች ሁሉ በዚህ በወያኔ የጎሳ አገዛዝ አማካኝነት እየመሰረቱ ነው። በዚህም ምክንያት ኢትዮጵያና ህዝብዋ ከመቼውም ግዜ በበለጠ ልዩና ወሳኝ በሆነ ፈታኝ ወቅት ላይ ይገኛሉ። ወቅቱ ኢትዮጵያውያን በአጠቃላይ ኢትዮጵያውያን ሴቶች በተለይ ምንማድረግ ይኖርባቸዋል? ብለን እንድንጠይቅና ልዩ ጥሪ እንድናስተላልፍ ያስገድደናል።

A Nation At a Breaking Point and The Case of The Ethiopian Intellectual By Dr. Abeba Fekade

 An Urgent Call to all Ethiopian Women

International Ethiopian Women’s Organization (IEWO) calls upon all Ethiopian women to rise up and make a difference in the struggle to free Ethiopia from the fascistic apartheid system of woyane. The bible says  “If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done (Ecclesiastes 11:4) 

The recent flame of change ignited in North Africa is engulfing the countries that are infested with oppression and repression. Though, nothing will stop this wave of change from reaching Ethiopia. As the wind of change is reaching Ethiopia, it is imperative that Ethiopian women all over the world engage in a serious discussion, which leads to a meaningful change
 

This week, as we commemorate the victory of Adwa and celebrate International women’s day, we are more than ever cognizant of the power of women and the decisive role they can play in the struggle for freedom. It is in deed, in this month in 1896 under the leadership of Empress Tayitu, that Ethiopia was able to defeat the invading Italian army.  To day, we need to invoke the spirit of our brave mothers in order to repeat the victory of Adwa, this time it is against the new enemy, the tplf.
 
It is the order of the day for Ethiopian women to take full charge and responsibility as their ancestors and foremothers have done for their freedom and dignity. In order to wedge a successful freedom movement we must summon the power of women, the wisdom and courage of our foremothers. (“One action is more valuable than a thousand good intentions”)

In light of this, on March 5, starting at 11 am east coast time, International Ethiopian Women’s Organization (IEWO) Paltalk Room will present a panel discussion With Dr. Maigent Sheferaw, W/ro Fikeret G/Mariam and W/rt Lulit Mesfin on the current Ethiopian situation, with special focus on the role of Ethiopian women in the struggle to remove the fascistic apartheid system of tplf/woyane. All Ethiopians are invited to join this important discussion.

Courageous women of Ethiopia, rise up for freedom.

 
Long Live Ethiopia, 

 
International Ethiopian Women’s Organization (IEWO)   


Campaign for Justice, Freedom and Peace in Ethiopia 

International Ethiopian Women’s Organization (IEWO) is an organization
established to bring justice, respect of human rights and peace in Ethiopians.
 It is an organization devoted to further women’s assertive participation
in the struggle for women’s rights, economic equality and social stability. 
 
Today, Ethiopian women carry the brunt of the overall oppression, injustice,
 poverty and violence that has engulfed the society. A large number of
Ethiopia women and children are subjected to modern slavery
and human trafficking. They are forced to migrate to the Middle East
and become victims of modern slavery as they are forced to selling their labor
to a sub-human standard with ever increasing danger of constant sexual
and physical abuses that culminate in physical and mental disturbances
including suicides. The dehumanization and cruelty that
Ethiopian women are enduring has been directly and indirectly
legitimized and sponsored by the current repressive regime in Ethiopia.
 
 

Thus, International Ethiopian Women’s Organization has made it
its responsibility to campaign against the violence and injustice
committed on Ethiopian people in general and the oppression
and exploitation of Ethiopian women in particular.

As part of our peace and freedom campaign
 we would like to call upon the
international community to:

1. Hold the government of Meles Zenawe accountable for
its gross violation of human rights, genocide and ongoing
widespread repression of Ethiopians,
 

2. Avoid becoming an accomplice to the act of
Melese Zenawe’s regime brutally robbing the poor
and illegally amassing monies of corruption and out right theft,

3. Urge those that are actively helping and sustaining
the life of the present repressive regime in Ethiopia to stop,
instead call upon you to stand with the Ethiopian people
by boycotting the regime politically and economically,


4. Remind all those involved in helping the present regime the
 grave consequences of their act such as enabling
and sustaining the life of a political system that makes
life unbearable to the vast majority of Ethiopians,

5. Encourage those countries and global communities
which are engaged in economic and political aid
to the people of Ethiopia not to the regime,

6. Support our effort to stop human trafficking
and the subjecting of young Ethiopian women
to modern slavery and gross inhuman treatments
 in Middle East countries in particular,

7. Support our demand for justice and for
the releases of W/ro Birtukan Medikesa
 and all political prisoners in the country, 

To these end, we call upon you to support the
Campaign for Justice, Freedom and Peace in Ethiopia.
 
For true peace to be attained justice must prevail in society 

 IEWO, May, 2010

ታሪኩ እንደዚ ነበር:: የቃሉ ባለቤት የነበረው ሰው ቦይኮት( Captain Charles Cunningham Boycott) የአንድ በቦታው የማይኖር የመሬት ከበርቴ (absentee English landlord) ወኪል ሆኖ በሚሠራበት ጊዜ ጭሰኞቹ የሚከፍሉትን የመሬት ኪራይ እንድቀንስላቸው ይጠይቁታል፡ ቦይኮት ግን ቅናሽ ከማድረግ ይልቅ ይባስ ብሎ ገበሬዎቹን (ጭሰኞቹን) ከይዞታቸው እንድነቀሉ አደረጋቸው:: በዚህ ድርጊቱ የተበሳጩትና የተጎዱት ገበሬዎች ከካፒቴይን ቦይኮት ጋራ ምንም ዓይነት ግንኙነት ላለማድረግ ወሰኑ።

Boycott all products and services and cut off woyanes financial blood- line

Ethiopia: Will it ever be able to stave off starvation?
The Economist
Famine is once again threatening the continent's second-most-populous country and once again its government is partly to blame   GORU GUTU is perched in the misty heights of the steep hills above Harar, in eastern Ethiopia. For the poorest, life here is still akin to serfdom—minus a tsarist order. The government owns the land; a banner over its local office proclaims “the people” to be “the base of all development”.

Dear Senator Inhofe:

In your statement reported in the Congressional Record, your own website and on Youtube, you stated that Ethiopians are baby killers, child abusers and immoral people. Your statements are not only racist, mean-spirited, hurtful and offensive; they are also unsupported by any fact. Read more and take action.....

A Call To All Ethiopians and Human Right Activists- Horror and Torture in Ethiopian Prisons  

International Ethiopian Women’s Organization (IEWO) strongly condemns the gross human right violation in Ethiopia in general and the recent brutal and inhumane treatment of political prisoners in particular. Though it has been an ongoing reality for the past 20 years, torture and brutality has been intensified to the highest level of trauma and dehumanizing effects. Reliable information has exposed the painfully degrading situation in Kaliti prison’s interrogation center in Addis Ababa as it is evidenced by brutally torturing a woman political prisoner, Emawayesh Alemu.  As a result of the debilitating torment and violation of her humanity, she endured a long lasting physical and psychological trauma. Emawayesh Alemu was falsely accused and convicted by Melese Zenawe’s regime for allegedly partaking in the 2009 attempt to over throw the regime.  Emawayesh Alemu is a mother and grandmother who served her country as a civil servant in Gonder for several years. 

 

International Ethiopian Women’s Organization (IEWO) calls on all Ethiopians and International human right activists to join us in condemning the torturing of political prisoners in general and Emawayesh Alemu in particular. We demand that such brutal treatment be stopped and call for the immediate release of all political prisoners. We call for your support and solidarity to the people of Ethiopia in general. To this end, Once again, we call upon the international community to not to support a regime who continues to vigorously rob the nation and violate basic human rights including torturing.

Victory to the people,
IEWO


BOYCOTTING THE ELECTION  By  Ambassador  Imru Zelleke 

A Parliament is a political body composed of freely and democratically elected representatives in which all measures governing millions of people are discussed freely and decided upon according to democratic rules. To be party to such body knowing fully that one’s vote counts for nothing,  against  an automatic majority organized by the ruling regime is contrary to any democratic principles and moral values, and a betrayal of the electors trust. People elect representatives to voice their concerns in the polity and to promote their welfare.

In the case of Ethiopia it is universal knowledge that the regime in power has exerted e very means legal and illegal to win the election. Opposition members have been killed, arrested, harassed and persecuted for one reason or another, peasants, workers, students, women, high school students, state and private sector employees have been forced to register with the party in power. Public meetings and manifestations have been prohibited. The independent press has been muzzled, journalists arrested, access to media denied to the opposition but for debates orchestrated by the regime, foreign broadcasts like VOA have been jammed.  Independent observers from local NGO’s are not allowed to observe the proceedings of the vote. Foreign diplomatic representatives cannot travel around the country without prior government permission.   Businesses and merchants have been blackmailed to contribute millions of Birr to the ruling party.

From what has been observed for the past five years those that have been party to the present parliament have not produced anything of value, but serving as a punching bag for the Prime Minister abuses and contempt.  Participating in such kind of farcical comedy at the expense of the disadvantaged people they are supposed to represent, is a sad and most serious breach of public faith. Under these circumstances I think that opposition parties  should simply boycott the election instead of being party to a humiliating rigmarole.

BOYCOTTING THE ELECTION IS CLEAR AND POSITIVE POLITICAL STATEMENT WITHOUT AMBIGUITY AS TO THEIR IDEOLOGICAL AND POLITICAL POSITION, THAT WILL ENHANCE THEIR PUBLIC IMAGE IN LIEU OF A DEMEANING ACT OF SURRENDER.

***Boycott all products and services and cut off woyanes’ financial blood- line***

=========================================================================
Today in Ethiopia, economic, political and human rights are grossly violated across the country and many  Ethiopian women are found in the most dehumanizing and oppressive conditions. Very young women and children are the  primary victims of infectious diseases,  poverty, child prostitution and subject to modern slavery under the current oppressive and violent regime.
