On July 18, 2007, HR 2003, “Ethiopia Democracy and Accountability Act of 2007”, authored by Congressman Donald Payne (D-NJ), unanimously passed the Subcommittee on Africa and is forwarded to the Foreign Affairs Committee.

A truly bipartisan bill (all members of the Subcommittee on Africa voted for the bill, 7 Democrats and 6 Republicans), H.R. 2003, is expected to be presented to the entire Foreign Affairs Committee for a vote before Congress recesses for the summer in early August, 2007.
The unanimous vote for the “Ethiopia Democracy and Accountability Act of 2007″ by the Subcommittee on Africa is widely believed to be yet another indication that the United States government is adapting the views of the European Union on the Zenawi regime:

  1. - An accurate understanding of the massive, and systematic crackdown on dissent,
  2. - The worsening repression and gross infringement of human rights and
  3. - The critical situation of the hundreds of thousands of prisoner of conscious including the opposition leaders who remain in arbitrary detention
