Amsterdam (ethioguardian.com and ethioforum.org, July, 1, 2007) — Ethiopians in The Netherlands have taught a lesson to the TPLF embassy mission in Amsterdam on Sunday. Amb. Berhane accompanied by two diplomats who came all the way from Brussels couldn’t tolerate the opposite views and left out in the middle of the meeting. He is finally brought back to the hall by the participants to listen to the crimes of TPLF from the crowd. [Watch video, secret tapping]
“The Embassy paid for it but we made use of It.” one participant said after the meeting. “The mission lacked morally authority to speak about Democracy, human rights and development in front of Ethiopians. That is what I observed.”
The meeting started with the observance of one minute silence to commemorate the victims in civilians who had been killed, maimed and jailed by the incumbent regime in Ethiopia. Everyone but Berhane G.Kirstos and his supporters stood up and prayed for a minute.
The most embarrassing part is that from 500 invited TPLF loyalists; only four have been shown up in the meeting. The meeting hall was filled with anti-woyyane Ethiopians who took control of the entire session.
“Today’s meeting clearly confirms the collapse of the regime where it is deserted even by its own supporters.” Dagne Taddese says. “Where are your tens of followers whom you gave land to build house over in Addis? Where are the so called investors?” A question Berhane and co. couldn’t dare to respond.
The Ethiopians finally closed the meeting by themselves after Kefale Mammo, Mesfin Aman and Dr. Assefa Negash gave their speeches on the regime’s ever worsening human rights abuses, corruption and economic crisis where they get audience’s full attention. A very angry Berhane G.K. didn’t even get a chance to say his final word. “We have finished our meeting.” Said the crowd and ended the session.
Photo camera and video tapping was not allowed by the security guards, who were paid 300.00 euro each. But we are able to secretly film some part of the drama. [Here the hidden camera]
The thugs would have learned a lesson from their meeting last month in The Hague where they were humiliated in front of their supporters.
