    Wow! I am speechless, what an incredible human being. Thank you seems so inadequate to express my heartfelt appreciations. Great to know that there are still kind people in this world like Mr. Chris Flaherty who are willing to scarify themselves for fellow human being. I hope some young and healthy Ethiopians join this extraordinary human being for the hunger strike. May God Bless Mr. Flaherty and his loved ones.

    On that bright spring day in Birmingham Jailhouse, Martin Luther King wrote “But more basically, I am in Birmingham because injustice is here”. Today simmered with indignation and a debt of gratitude towards the lonely voice of Chris Flaherty protesting the unspeakable injustice against our people.

    His lonely protest is equally an indictment to all ETHIOPIANS who live on the eastern seaboard and failed to join him at this critical time. I call on every ETHIOPIAN to join Chris and myself so that the iconic civil right leader who reminded us, shall not come to pass. “We will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends” in fact of “..our fellow Ethiopians”.

    God Save Ethiopia

    This is a challenge, a wake-up call, if you will to all Ethiopians and friends of Ethiopia to join Chris, our hero, in the fight against brutal oppression in Ethiopia.

    Ethiopians and friends of Ethiopia residing in the Washington DC and surrounding areas should show their love for Ethiopia and their concern for democracy and respect for human rights by participating in the hunger strike.

    Concerned individuals residing in other areas and states should call on their Congress representatives to support the Ethiopian cause by writing to President Obama and the relevant Foreign Relations Committees in the House of Representatives as well as the Senate calling on them to take an urgent action for Ms. Bertukan’s immediate release.

    When Chris, an American, goes on a hunger strike for Ethiopians, surely we Ethiopians should do more for our beloved country!!!!!!!!

    Please wake up and DO something instead of merely talking!!!!
