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.

Birtukan Mideksa

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.

Here is the amharic news -

    It is really great to see our people show respect for the right value again and again. That will pay off eventually. It is just because a vibrant democracy takes society that values the democratic principles.

    Birtukan Mideksa is not only struggling for all Ethiopians as a freedom fighter in Ethiopian, she is the symbol of rising women’s’ spiritual power in this planet to stand on the side of all men as equal and defend their country and people in a time of need! I wish her to live through this struggle and see tomorrow’s true democracy flourishing not only in Ethiopia also all over Africa as where she lives could make a tremendous difference in the Mandela’s dream comes true in the heart of African Unity too. God bless you and your family.

    Dear Addis Abians,

    Am really proud of you!!!
    I wish i could be with you; i’m crying about the love you showed to the leaders.
    Regardless of your economic suffering cos weyane deliberately raised cost of living, you really showed enemies of democracy how Ethiopians are always with the true leaders.
    God bless the people of Ethiopia!

    I really appriciate the Ferensay Legasion residents. W/t Birtukan deserves more than that and she is a symbol of all those who stands for democracy. I lack appropriate words to express my feelings when I read this news.

    I am today proud to be an Ethiopian. A country so proud since bibilical time. Ferensay Legacion is reviving the spirit of Ethiopiawinet.That is what I for so long aspired and longed for the last 37 years. Now we are coming to the era of loving our leaders. I thank Jesus for this. God bless my beloved Ethiopia.

    It is the beginning of the mark of an era where people begin to love and cherish their leaders. History remembers the massacre of the black masked Geraziani- Meles. Consider Bertukan and Meles. One kills and the other chose to die (if would be) and rather suffer the agony of Kaliti.
    Bertukan is and will be remembered as Tayatu of Adawa. I salute her community for cherishing her. She deserves the love of her people. After all that is what she wanted in her life. And that is what every body wanted. But she is the one who got it. Because she is a heroine and one of our best leaders. I cherish her as the would be Tayitu of future Ethiopia.

    yefetete lemena.

    No matter what u did for her, u bring nothing. Let alone she who doesn’t know herself, if u bring Lencho Leta or Dawid Ibsa or Hussien Hassan, u will not hoodwink oromo people. Our target is written in the heart and sole of past, present and upcoming generation which is indelible by any means.

    Did Meles witness the cermony and the event that surrounded the heroine. What do you think he would feel in hiding. How did he go among the people. I guess he has to be heavily guarded more than ever.

    Birtukan belongs to the oromos of Ethiopia but not of the OLF. Rest assured that had she wanted as Lencho did, she would have, from the outset, joined and even struggled more than the lunatic Lencho did. Gone are the days of catagorizing citizens by their ethnic. Ethnicism is of the past. Siyaye left it and others will follow suit. You can join Meles and Lencho The camel strides as dog barks. In the end you will see what the real oromo wants. We oromos are not of the OLF but are sharing the love and the aspiration of the ethiopian people and currently joining hands with Ferenciay Legacion community

    Do not be afraid and do not worry. You can decorate her. And not mention Meles. That is not your level
    By the way do not also be proud as an Oromo. We know your heart of your hearts.
    Remember when we drove you out and herded you like a cattle around Gelemesso, Mechara and Gara Muleta area. Remember!!
    We used to hang our pants on a tree as you swarm in to fight. But when you see our pants hanging you were flying away to save your life.You are all chicken heads. Remember we used to drive you in a thousand and we can still drive you like a cattle. Do not meddle Remember Gara Muleta and Machara

    I am proud what the community did. The token is a sign of earnest love. But more than the material value of the gift, I guess the moral support accorded to her is priceless. I think Bertukan counted on that and worthy of. I am proud of being an Ethiopian. We all are Ethiopians but not divided along the machinations of ethnic lines engineered by Meles and Co.

    Dear Ferensay Legacion People and other supporters, commentators;

    It is very nice to acknowledge those brave ethiopians stayed in Jails for two years for ebing elected. But I feel we have to thinks our matrys who sacrified their lives for peoples freedom. In my Opinion this is much greater than those languished in jail. We have to do something for them. Other mystery is there are unknown heroes and heroines all over Ethiopian who did fantastic and great job than the leaders. But never known becaause they are murdered at cold night by agazi, no one know except the families. This should be noted at least in our internet politics.

    Good job by French Legasion residence.
    Hey, Oromos, please let us be friends because you are our brothers and sisters. We love you.

    We do not want to be separated from you or even from Eritreans. Please let us live together like all times.

    My hat is off for you all. Birtukan is a type of leader who practise what they preach. More power for her.

  35. Tiberga

    We should think of our fallen heros as well. We had a lot of these brave martyrs massacred by Meles and Co. The Fascist has slaughtered a lot at every door step of every family both in Addis and in other areas. Kinijit should raise this question on their visit here and fund should be allocated by us to help these families. I guess we should act from our pocket than gesturing mere talk and lip service. Ferencay is a vivid example.Act from your pockets when our leaders come in.

    Three points to add:
    1. Birtukan is a freedom fighter who showed great determination to challenge the TPLF led tyrant cirles and their bull cliques with such unprecedented gallatry. So, she is of great humanity and worth to reward to.

    2. You people from Oromo like me should be proud of her as other fellow ethiopians do. I storngly believe that it is not Ethiopian mass that commited any historic crimes on the Oromo people. It was rather a thiny sect of the ruling body. Thus, there is no way to be endoctrinated by the ethnocentric political propagandas of TPLF and OLF. Ethiopia is only the unit made up of all our differences and commonalities.

    3. It is only TPLF and its cliques and Lidetu of the dying Parliament who shopuld be angered by the reward to our heroine.

    May God bless Ethiopia and its people.
    Death to the wolfish tyrants in Arat Killo

    Bertukan!! I have a gift for you but where can I get you.

    Government means the one who love by his people and the one who loves his people. You are going to show what expected from you. This is it. Burtukan, don’t discourage by Wetyane God will do what it should be when the time comes. I am the one who apprecate you, love you and respect you. You deserved Airplane not Car. I beleive that if Ferensay people can afford to buy you an Airplane they will do it. Bertukan “Mens in power” please make it history!!

    I Love you!!!
