ETHIOPIANS IN SWEDEN COMMEMORATED MAY 15TH COLOURFULLY (WITH MANY HOLDING THE ETHIOPIAN FLAG) AND VOWED TO INTENSIFY THE STRUGGLE TO BRING DEMOCRACY, JUSTICE, AND UNITY TO THEIR BELOVED COUNTRY! (more…)

ETHIOPIANS IN SWEDEN COMMEMORATED MAY 15TH COLOURFULLY (WITH MANY HOLDING THE ETHIOPIAN FLAG) AND VOWED TO INTENSIFY THE STRUGGLE TO BRING DEMOCRACY, JUSTICE, AND UNITY TO THEIR BELOVED COUNTRY!

OUR SWEDISH PARLIAMENT MEMBER FRIENDS FROM THE LEFT PARTY I.E. HANS LINDE, AND THE FOLK PARTY (PEOPLE PARTY) BIRGITTA OHALSSON WERE ALSO THERE AND MADE A WONDERFUL SPEECH. BOTH PARLIAMENT MEMBERS PROMISED US TO KEEP ON SUPPORTING OUR STRUGGLE ALL THE WAY TO VICTORY! SPECIALLY HANS LINDE FROM THE LEFT PARTY TOLD THE CROWD THAT HE WAS CONTACTED & BEGGED BY THE TPLF/EPRDF EMBASSY IN STOCKHOLM TO VISIT ETHIOPIA AND NOT TO LISTEN TO THE OPPOSITION IN SWEDEN TELLING HIM THAT THERE IS DEMOCRACY IN ETHIOPIA & THE OPPOSITIONS ARE NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF CRIMINALS AND TERRORISTS. BUT THE YOUNG AND VIBRANT FRIENDS OF OURS HANS TOLD THE TPLF AMBASSADOR THAT HE WILL NEVER VISIT ETHIOPIA BEFORE A MELES/TPLF DICTATORSHIP IS ABOLISHED AND REPLACED BY A DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT WHICH IS CHOSEN BY THE PEOPLE AND WORK FOR THE PEOPLE.

BIRGITTA FROM THE FOLK PARTY ENCOURAGED US TO KEEP THE STRUGGLE ALIVE AND NEVER TO KNEEL DOWN FOR MELES DICTATORSHIP AND MAKE HIM KNEEL DOWN INSTEAD. SHE ALSO REMIND US THAT IT’S THANKS FOR OUR STRUGGLE THAT THE LEADERS OF KINIJIT, JOURNALISTS, HUMAN RIGHT ACTIVISTS ARE FREE FROM JAIL, BUT URGED US TO KEEP ON THE FIGHT UNTIL THE WHOLE ETHIOPIAN PEOPLE ENJOY THE FREEDOM THAT THEY DESERVE.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST THE KSSGR(KINIJIT SWEDEN SUPPORT GROUP) CHAIRMAN, ATO TAMRAT ADMU MADE A WONDERFUL SPEECH UPDATING THE CROWD ABOUT THE TERRIBLE POLITICAL AND ECONOMICAL SITUATION IN ETHIOPIA, AND THAT THE STRUGGLE MUST BE INTENSIFIED THAT WE NEVER SHOULD REST UNTIL THE MELES DICTATOR (OR ANY OTHER DICTATOR) IS REPLACED BY A DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT THAT RESPECT THE WILL OF THE ETHIOPIAN PEOPLE.

IN ADDITION TO THAT SOME INDIVIDUALS FROM THE CROWD WAS GIVEN A CHANCE TO EXPRESS THEIR OPINION OF THE SITUATION IN ETHIOPIA, AND THEY EXPRESSED THEIR ANGER OF THE SITUATION AND THEREFORE THEIR DECISION TO INTENSIFY THEIR PARTICIPATION IN THE STRUGGLE TO BRING A REAL DEMOCRATIC CHANGE IN ETHIOPIA.

THE FAMOUS ETHIOPIAN POET MATHIAS READ FOR THE CROWD VERY INTERESTING “GITEM” ABOUT TEDI AFRO’S LOVE FOR ETHIOPIA, HIS GREAT DEEDS, THE FACT THAT HE HAS BECOME A VICTIM OF MELES BECAUSE OF HIS LOVE FOR ETHIOPIA & HER UNITY. IN HIS POEM (“GITEM”) MATHIAS MADE IT CLEAR THAT THE ETHIOPIAN PEOPLE WILL STAND BY TEWODEROS SIDE AS HE ALWAYS STOOD BY THEIR SIDE.
FINALLY THE CROWD SANG THE NATIONAL ANTHEM OF ETHIOPIA AND THAT WAS THE END OF THE DEMONSTRATION.

N.B BY THE WAY IT IS WORTH INFORMING SPECIALLY THOSE OF YOU OUTSIDE ETHIOPIAN THAT THE SWEDISH POLICE HAVE A GREAT RESPECT FOR ETHIOPIANS AND THEY CONSIDER US AS A VERY DISCIPLINED PEOPLE EVEN WHEN WE EXPRESS OUR ANGER THEY KNOW THAT WE DO IT IN A VERY CIVILISED MANNER. THEY ENJOY THEREFORE DEALING WITH ETHIOPIAN DEMONSTRATORS BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT WE FIGHT FOR BRINGING A DEMOCRATIC CHANGE WITH A GREAT VISION NOT BECAUSE WE ARE A BUNCH OF CRIMINALS OR TERRORISTS AS THE TPLF (OR TPLF EMBASSY IN STOCKHOLM) TRY TO DESCRIBE US, BUT A COMMITTED FIGHTER OF DEMOCRACY!
