The Messengers of the butcher of Addis, Melesse Zenawe had attempted to convene a meeting in Dallas yesterday, June 22nd, at 4:00 pm at the Radisson Hotel located at Hwy. 75 and Campbell to spread propaganda about Ethiopia and their regime. They came prepared to deliver their well known talking points: the politics of Ethiopia is democratizing and is in good custody; leave the politics for us — just come home and spend money as tourists — send your remittances and of course invest.

The Messengers of the butcher of Addis, Melesse Zenawe had attempted to convene a meeting in Dallas yesterday, June 22nd, at 4:00 pm at the Radisson Hotel located at Hwy. 75 and Campbell to spread propaganda about Ethiopia and their regime. They came prepared to deliver their well known talking points: the politics of Ethiopia is democratizing and is in good custody; leave the politics for us — just come home and spend money as tourists — send your remittances and of course invest. Melesse’s stooge officials: Ato Hilawe Yosef (EPDRF’s campaign manager during the bloody 2005 election), Ato Demeke Mekonnen (so called Vice President of the Amhara Regional State who is involved in orchestrating the regional cover for ceding of Ethiopian territory to the Sudan) and Ato Mulae Tarekegn from the Ethiopian Embassy in Washington, D.C and their operatives amongst us know very well that it is impossible for them to sell this idea to Ethiopians. Their aim is clear. It is to go every where the Diaspora is and get a handful of people in a room for a propaganda consumption. Knowing this, the opposition activists in Dallas came prepared to change their talking points.

The meeting ended in being a total fiasco as the Woyane representatives were forced to abandon their prepared speech and agenda of political stability and economic development in Ethiopia and instead were forced by patriotic Ethiopians to go directly to questions and answers focusing on the Ethio-Sudan border, the on-going drought and famine and the grave dissatisfaction of the Ethiopian people with the endless lies, dishonesty and corruption of the dictatorial regime of Melesse Zenawi.

The Woyanes were given an earful about the dreadful situation prevailing in Ethiopia: the absolute lack of democracy and gross abuse of human rights; the famine that is afflicting 14 million Ethiopians; the ceding of sovereign Ethiopian territory to the Sudan; the EPRDF government’s lies about Badme and the loss of 70,000 Ethiopians in the war between Eritrea and Ethiopia; the grinding poverty prevalent in Ethiopia despite EPRDF’s false claims regarding development; and many other such important facts demonstrating the utter failure of the current regime in Ethiopia.

The response by the Woyane representatives was totally inadequate as they were teetering in shock at the strong opposition and incisive remarks and questions directed at them. Some of their responses were pitifully and obviously unconvincing. One of them alleged, for instance, that no land has been ceded to the Sudan although the Sudanese government has confirmed to the contrary; and the very Ethiopian people whose land and property has been ceded to and occupied by the Sudanese have testified to that fact repeatedly on VOA. It was particularly tragic to note that according to the Woyane representatives, the on-going drought and famine occurring in Ethiopia was an exaggeration and that it was a figment of imagination of the international community!

After expressing the bitter frustration of the Ethiopian people with the corrupt regime and dominating the forum which was organized by operatives of Woyane for three hours, most of the participants walked out in protest leaving the Woyane representatives and their handful puppets extremely frustrated and confused. It was a good opportunity to identify their operatives among us conspiring to penetrate and silence the Diaspora under the guise of “consensus forum”. They need to be fully exposed and be under the watchful eyes of patriotic Ethiopians. We ask fellow Ethiopians in the Diaspora, to challenge the TPLF propagandists where ever they come and most of all identify their operatives amongst us.

Let other Woyane meetings result in a total fiasco!

    Dallas! Thanks for what U all did. This has to be a lesson to the rest of us as we have to follow them. The brutal rule has to be told enough is enough. They came here to misinform and misguide us. We had enough of their propaganda from Iga forum. The so called Demeke was unable to give clear idea about the land given to Sudan when Addisu interviewed him (VOA). By now he must have been told what to say by Bereket. We have to tell them that we have the right information and no space in our mind is left for the massacre propaganda.
