Residents of Ferensay Legacion award a car to Birtukan Mideksa
Residents of Ferensay-Legacion award a car to Birtukan Mideksa and bracelets with a V sign engraved on it as well as Personalized Plaques to each one of the recently released kinijit Leaders at a reception held on Saturday, August 25, 2007. Ferensay-Legacion, The Residence of Birtukan Mideksa, is also home of many brave Ethiopians who sacrificed their lives in the aftermath of the 2005 Election. Representing the party, Wzt. Bertukan and Prof. Mesfin gave speeches.
There were so many really emotional moments during the reception. Some residents were noted crying. One of the residents was quoted saying “If we could afford it, we would have awarded a car to each and every one of you. However, you have our hearts and minds which is priceless.”
One thing we should learn from this is that we, Ethiopians in the Diaspora should leave our personal ego behind and come together for the sake of our people in Ethiopia and our leaders who languished in prison for two agonizing years so that we have a better taste of democracy.
