    This is the most emberassing demo I have attended in terms of people turning out for a good cause.

    While HR2003 is a noble idea, if marked up by the House Foreign Relations committee, and then passed by a majority vote of the 400 and plus House of Representative members, and then again passed by the a majority vote of the 100 US Senate members, and if finally signed by the President of the US, that would play a significance role in the freeing and democratization of Ethiopia; the turned out was very sad as you can see in the picture.

    To my surprise, last night’s woyane Millinnium party at the National Monument in D.C., where the party animal Ethiopian Ambassador lit a “chibo”, had 10,000 or plus people. By the way it is worth mentioning that there was no Ethiopian artist entertaining at the D.C. Memorial function. Local no name reggae bands were the highlight. I am also surprised that the star studed Opposition Millinnium Group powered by Tamagne, Abebe Belew, Alemtsehay Wedajo, and etc. did not have anything for us for New Year’s Eve… “Mejajal Yichalal” bilew ager bet zew lilu niew meselegne qiqiqiqi :)

    Negerin neger yamatawal endilu hulu, How come ethioforum.org and ethiopianreview.com are down few days before Hailu Shawel’s Saturday 4:30 PM arrival at Reagen National Airport in D.C.? Is that a new trick of opposition news black out so people won’t go out and greet him?

    I knew Dr Hailu long time ago when he was Dean to Institute ofr Language Studies at the University of Addis Ababa. He is one of few Ethiopian intelectuals with a solid principle and unwavering love to his country. I’m glad to see him and other Kinijit leaders free and in a position to liberate the nation from the darkness of wayane rule.

    To Neqie Ende Asefu Debalqie,

    ethiopianreview and ethioforum are celebrating the millenium too. You are used to see this kinds of dirty game from your crime minister Melse, so it is not surprising us.

    Think before you speak!

    One showing is better than one hundred saying.
    Do not expect people to show up every day. To survive one has to work. Saturday then Tuesday then Saturday. Please organize a planed one large scale inviting all Ethiopians in proper time before the leaders return to Addis

    Any way I wish you a happy day

    Tamagne & Abebe Belew are two Awedeleday artists who are only interested in making money and show of in a big gatherings – after all they can’t sing so what do you want them to do?

    Hailu is here in America. He is not a type of guy who likes praise and MASHEKABETE. He will be better off if ER,EMF and Ethiomedia mind their own dirty business. I hope he will use his wisdom to calm down the tension buzzing around metro DC. The five delegates also have to take it easy. Eng. Gizachew is one undiscplined guy who is not fit for teamwork. Of course as a poltician they have their own poltical views and differences but the Diaspora forum is not the right place to discuss them. Specially at this time where the struggle at home is dead, they need their unity more than anything else. All these five guys seems guffy and confrontational. This shows how Andy has managed to penterate the Kaliti prison wall (may be with the help of brother in law Tefera Walwa) and poisoned their brain. Regardless of what, Hailu is not a person you can push around. Since his days of the Shell Int’l principle always comes first. If the harrassment continues, then the next step by Hailu will be suspending the trouble makers. With that we will end our journey with Kinijit in to the millennium.

    Hailu Shawel will prevail he does not need fanfares he is very sure of who he is and a man of integrity. He is a leader and does not need a rock star reception. He knows that the people of Ethiopia are with him. He has done his homework over the years and they know who he is. He is not about show he is about principal.

    Although I have doubt on the internet media, as the prim minter’s millennium speech was snatched from somebody’s comment. And I believe Abugida is a genuine site. However, now there is no media outlet form Ethiopia there is very little news what is going on. Recently U tube and some web sites are down. Sites like BBC, AP, and VOA are sending false propaganda in support of the dictatorial regime in Ethiopia.

    We have wise leaders their objective is to bring all Ethiopians under one umbrella, despite some serpents who want to inject divide and rule East or West love is best, they are not power thirst, what they want is one Ethiopia sovereign, peaceful where democracy and equity prevails no Ethnic division.. I love them
    They are genuine leaders.

    I am disappointed by the company of
    Girma Wolde Giorgis, (He is a pseudo president , tooth less bulldog, he should have made the speech)
    President Omar Hassan Al Beshir’ Killer of Darfur, allied of TLF and ELF, investor in Ethiopia record of selling African slaves, killer of John Garang
    President Paul Kagame (Accused of Interahamwe by France)
    Ismail Omar Guelle, ( hotel owner in Dire Dawa)
    President Maui Kibaki, (Next time ethnic federalism in Kenya, oppression of Kikuyu)
    Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed (Anarchist, who betrayed Somali people for chewing Quhat dollar
    Professor Alfa Omar Konare (He failed in Mali and now spoiling Ethiopia, French agent)

    To Neqi ende asefu debalke
    We are proud of Eng. Hailu for his determined struggle and couragefull leadreship to bring democracy in Ethiopia. But, he was misguided by his wife relatives, on behalf of Shaleqa, after he released from Kaliti and he was trying to cover up Shaleqas’ theft. Moreover, he decided to come to US after he observed that kinjit supporters are only respect kinjit principle but not individuals. I appreciate him if he implement the real principle for what he and his collegues have been suffering for (Democracy). I am the first to go to Reagon airport to recieve him warmely.
    God bless Ethiopia!!!!

    Tactical Strategy for Kinijit,
    Kinijit take care, somebody is pushing you toward the cliff.
    You had two mass gathering in one week a third is expected by the week end. Obviously there will be low turn out people can not come every day. Let Hailu shawl arrive low profile without reception. But organize a well planed one after discussing with him and before returns back to Addis. Otherwise the gap between the opposition will widen in the public and Kinijit could be at the edge of a cliff difficult to mend.

    A good injera can tell from the oven an old Ethiopian proverb says.
    The journey to word the 3 millennium seem to be dark
    The first mistake of the millennium during the first day!
    Woyane is abandoning the peasantry,
    After the failure of Agriculture lead industrialization and rural development totally they ignored the peasant by Dancing with Black eyed Reggae dancers. Is wearing trouser, coloring hair, prostitution, dancing modernity, creating Alamudi monopoly etc?

    Thank you Organizers. What you have done is a great and great job. By the way it has been covered by different media (like washington post and NPR). You have done a history which will be remembered by generations.
    Well done!

    Samrawit,

    Your comment on Hailu Shawel: “Moreover, he decided to come to US after he observed that kinjit supporters are only respect kinjit principle but not individuals.”

    You must be one of those who thinks like animal – that Prof. Mesfin is talking about in his book “YEKEHDET KULKULET”. For your information Hailu Shawel’s request for a visa to come to NA leading the delegate has been delayed by US Embassy. A concidence or conspiracy we will know it later. But the like you, ER, EMF and other animals seems to be very happy with the arrangement because you have a short sight of getting on Shaleqa Yoseph. Try to look at the biggest picture otherwise there will be no CUD to cheer, no leaders to thank, no leaders to lead the struggle. Donkey!!

    By the way for the first time in weeks, Ethomedia seems to listen the complaint of many Ethiopians for Abraha Belay siding with Tsigie. And now he is announcing the arrival of Eng. Hailu Shawel in Washington DC. If I was Dr. Berhanu Nega and the Five star fools – I will go to the Airport and receive him. I know Hailu doesn’t like ASHKABAECH but at least recognize him as a leader. A struggle with out a leader is like a blind man walking with out a guide.

    A bag of Serpents! On this date in history (Meskerem Hulet)
    Eve had tempted Adam to eat of the fatal fruit,
    the serpent that tempted Eve was interpreted by some to have been Satan.
    Baptism is a means of washing away sins that were actually committed by the person being baptised.
    Is Meles sending CUD leaders for fear of public uprise or the US government want to give a lesson to CUD leaders what Clinton has done to Meless.

    After all I do not trust the US government, 32 years ago on this date in history Meskerem 2 Ethiopian calandar the Americans were quite when one of their old friend Emporor Hailesslassie was shot with disgrace like Sdam Hussien

    We want to know reaaly transparently what the US interest and strategy. Not the US should know our interest and strategy.

    First mistake of the Millenum on First Day

    On the first day Meles danced with Black eyed whishing darkness in Ethiopian
    While Meless was diverting attention by inviting wine, dine and music to those Hodams.
    The other members of his party were in Shire preaching that Amhara and Menelek are the enemy of Tigraie, and will prosper if Tigraie is one, exploiting the Tigraie nationalistic feeling. What they are doing is cheating the people with Toy development for their own benefit. The feudalism in Tigraie were the worst than any parts of Ethiopia even slavery was rampant until the Italians abolished 1n 1940.

    Demese,
    I wish to meet you physically and show you my deep love and strong respect to our hero Eng. Hailu Shawel, but I couldn’t. Anyways, if you are curious about the futurity of CUD just look on the big picture of CUD principles “Majority Rule” that every memeber of kinjit applaude for it. Shaleqa and his cos have been trying to misguided in the name of friendship and using his wife’s relatives to cover up them which is not acceptable under kinjit principles. Eng. Hailu always preach collective leadership and that was what have done before the rest delegates traveled to US. Eng Hailu will join the delegates but he might not get a welcoming ceremony that he deserves like others. You got me man,,, who called me animal. Animals always try to call human beings as animal.
    God bless Ethiopia!!!!!!

    Our heroes are right. We should stand together against Woyane. We should uphold the peaceful struggle in one spirit. Otherwise, our people may not enjoy democracy for decades. We do not expect democracy from EPRDF.
    Happy mellinium and freedom from woyane for all oppressed Ethiopians.
