e Semnawork| September 26, 2006 Scores of young protestors clashed with the police at the Meskel ceremony in Addis today. The security at the Meskel square was the tightest ever. Abuna paulos left the procession in a hurry without making the traditional speech of the patriarch. “Thief, Thief,” was chanted when he left the place.

The protestors pelted police cars and NOC fuel stations with rocks and shouted a call for the release of CUD leaders. Some were driven to the Haya-Hulet area and others to the Stadium area by police men and soldiers who were in their thousands. Plain-clothed security personnel were also involved in beating up and arresting protestors. In the stadium area, at least twenty were detained.

    Neftagna ? Are you retarded ? All woyane supporters are like parrot. It seems that is the only word you know. I have heared that word from dumb woyane supporters like you so many times. Grow up and try to learn a new word.

    i don’t think we need to show hatred to tigrayans… there are some of the who are looking forward for the change of our country, we pray for others to have wisdom though. i beleive the only way our country prospers is when we unite irrespective of what our ethnic groupis , that is why we are trying topple the woyane government. guys please lets keep the struggle!!
