We salute this important event where ordinary citizens voluntarily gathered to work together to form a just and free Ethiopia. We aware that this is the first for our country in our over 3000 years of history.
We in the Diaspora are heartened by the courage of the delegates from all over Ethiopia. We are in awe of the patience exhibited by the founders of Andenet in the face of the hardship they faced in the process of organizing for this important conference. We will not forget the hurt and sorrows of our fellow citizens since the 2005 elections. The official formation of Andenet is a response to the continuing repression and lack of basic rights.

This meeting that took place against all odds is a testimony that you are committed to the hard and arduous struggle ahead of us. Andenet is the result of hard work by so many who are committed to bring democracy to our country.

KNAASO with Canada Council is proud and committed to stand with you. We are also conscious that the quest for freedom is a long and protracted struggle. Events in last three years since the historical 2005 election have proven to us that the only lasting solution towards building a viable and democratic institution is to base it on a solid foundation of the rule of law and democracy. We are a very vibrant and all inclusive association of Chapters operating in all of North America including Canada due to our commitment to democracy.

We congratulate the founding members of Andenet (UJDP) and promise to double our efforts to help you reclaim our country and lead it in the right path.

Ethiopia will prevail !!!!

    It is amazing how the Ethiomedia, Abugidainfo and Addis Dimits serve as a media for for the dissident party UDJP, in the same fashion as Addis Dimits is presenting commericals in its radio broadcast. They using their good will as established media to advance the agenda of one party only, which does not have any constituency in Ethiopia execept from those of the loyal opposition and their rebel group hoping to capture the hearts and minds of the Ethiopians, with no solid agenda to struggle for freedom, soverneighty of Ethiopia and the Ethiopians in the context of the original Kinijit, only to perpetuate the current regime and gain a sizeable seat in the parliament vis avis the manner and conduct of the election proceess, because their agenda is no change but durable democracy as their press rease by Ato Aklog, just ater they finished their honeymoon tour. Since then Birtukan Mideksa has written a letter to the shimagles indicating that they are married never to be separated with the current regime, which I understand to mean to work hand and glove with the current regime, without any reform/change taking place to create the environment for fair and free election, I presume. Here we go again, what are they expecting different to happen than what has happened with the current local election, where Dr. Beyene Petros and Dr. Bulcha Demeksa had to withdraw from the election upon intimidation.

    Do you any of you see Birtukan confronting this brutal goverment, who killed innocent students in broad day light. I don’t think so. Not that she is not capable but she is sold out. No chance in hell that TPLF will allow strong and popular opposition like Kinijit function in Ethiopia. Not a chance, Not a chance, people we need to get our heads up and if we dont hit back hard and fast to these western journalist on time, they will make it like a ligitmate opposition party. They are behind it.
