Kinijit supporter Lishan Akuma’s trial has been underway in the Washington DC court for the past two days. Yesterday the judge informed her that today could be the final day of the trial and a decision may be handed down.

Lishan was arrested on July 12 while participating in a demonstration in front of the White House to protest the conviction by the Woyanne kangaroo court against leaders of the Coalition for Unity and Democracy Party (Kinijit) in Ethiopia.

The police arrested Lishan accusing her of not obeying police orders. She will appear in court again today at 10 AM for the final day of the trial.

Kinijit-DC Metro chapter official Ato Alemayehu Abebe urges fellow Ethiopians in the DC area to come to the court in a show of solidarity with Lishan.
