The Ethiopian embassy in Washington DC has planned to throw a party for the incoming U.S. president Barack Obama on his inauguration eve.

According to the organizers, the President elect, the Vice President elect, and many Washington dignitaries have been invited to this event. What makes this awkward is the fact that Ethiopia is better known for its human right violation and Obama is completely against it. It looks like the Ethiopian authorities are on a Tricky mission.

The EPRDF lead government has been committing serious human right crimes in Ethiopia. Closed to 200 people were killed by the government armed forces in the aftermath of the 2005 election, but justice has not been served yet. Several opposition members, before and after the 2005 election, were unlawfully incarcerated. Journalists, humanitarian workers, opposition members, etc. are continuously getting tortured and arrested for criticizing the government. Even at this moment, while the embassy is trying to show off in Washington DC, the most prominent Ethiopian opposition leader is brutally incarcerated in a solitary confinement in the notorious Kaliti prison.

The well known African dictator, the Ethiopian Prime Minister has been Ethiopia’s Head of State for more than 18 years. With Obama swearing in, America will have its fourth president since Meles Zenawi became Ethiopia’s head of state. In his ethnically based political strategy, Zenawi has been compulsorily dividing the people and punishing his critics.

The Zenawi government survived the Bush administration by deliberately allying itself with the war on the terrorism and through millions of dollars it paid to washington lobbyist. The upcoming party is also planed to seek out partnership with the new coming Obama administration.

However, it is not clear if the organizers are aware that they are playing with fire by inviting the change agent in their despotic organization. At least it takes cleanness to dance with stars and reliability to celebrate with champions. If Obama decides to show up on this event, he will only be there to give evidence that change
is coming.

    This is where all Ethiopians and friends of Ethiopia should rise to the occasion by demonstrating at the party venue. It will provide a good opportunity to show the real face of the brutal and inhuman regime in Ethiopia!

    Wase.

    It is very important for Ethiopians who live around DC to unite and protest on this event. These evils should be brought to justice.

    First of all, I don’t think Obama will bother to show up at Weyanne’s party. He is smart enough to know that Meles has been doing to stay in power since Bush the father. Think about it, after Bush the father there was Clinton for eight years and again Bush the son for another eight years. All this time there was no change in Ethiopia leadership for obvious reasons, such as Weyannes are not human enough to understand and accept the democratic principles and live with it. Now, after all that they want to celebrate Obama’s victory. It is almost laughable. All the tigres that I know are stupid and shameless. This attempt is just another example of their stupidity.

    All Tegres are not stupid you are stupid.How dare you generalize and call people stupid you should be ashamed of yourself.By the way Obama is not a fool to show up at the weyane’s party.They are trying to play their usual game.Not in America, not this time. All Ethiopians should get together and must show the real picture of the traiter weyane.God Bless America and Ethiopia!

    Hiwot:

    You are one of those people who still fail to understand that the people of Tigray are NOT your enemies. Sad but true, Just like this news post which is closed minded and more of an opinion,you have clearly gone way out of line. It sounds like you are one of those people who can not say anything infront of two people or more or wait until you are fully loaded with “areke”.

    BTW it’s President Elect Obama…,his election is celebrated by all and if the Ethiopian Embassy throws a party it’s all just a matter of PROTOCOL and does not mean the PI and VPI will just show up. My 7 y/old daughter understands that.

    I don’t think Obamas will show up in the party,but it would be better to be prepared for a demonstration to protest as well as blocking the entrance. It is good a opportunity to send message for Obama if he appear.

    Could some folks go there with readiness to signal and call others to join in immediately by getting ready with posters of protest and microphone to express the grave concern of Ethiopians regarding the despotic regime of Meles. Gobez, those of us living in the DC area should organise something, even whether Obama comes to the venue or not. We need to teach Woyane lessons in the way we can.

    Guys, it appears you are getting crazy by the day of the fear of EPRDF.

    By the way, the change which is coming could affect you – it may be targeted against liers, thieves, cheats, etc. Isn’t this a way of life for most of you!

    I better advise you to stop everything about Meles Zenawi.
    I am telling you i amnot the supporter of him.
    But look how done on Eritreans.
    He buried them alive along with their president. It is considered like a mass killing. Look how he did on his oponents demoralize each of them by arresting and terroring.
    So be away from him this man kill each of you separately.

    Seleshi, who do you think has been helping Meles to stay in power? The answer is clear not the Ethiopian people, it is President Bush and Ramsefield. If you believe Meles is our problem, you got to believe anybody who can remove him from power would definitly solve Ethiopia’s problem. The leader is a decisive factor.

    Members of the crimefamily,they are not only evil criminals,they are insanely crazy;yes,indeed;these criminal members of the house of crime think they can fool civilized minds.

    The world community and democratic leaders of all kinds across the Earth have been witnessing how the commandable Ethiopians defeated the invaders in that unforgettable year,2005;the looters,stole the election but then at the end of the day,they remained the undisputed losers to the mighty Ethiopians.

    No matter how singularly or multiple wicked ways they choose to fool others, it is better they do the cheat to their own tplfwoyane soldiers.

    Yes, in order to achieve their devilish goals,they committed atrocitites against millions of Ethiopians and had become the most ruthless robbers in the history of robbery;of course, there is one and only one thing that they are born to be,i.e the most ruthless and wicked looters,though,that if they wait long enough or if they become impatient,they would definitely exhaust themselves and head to their bitter fate.

    I noticed one thing that all Ethiopians do not know or do not want to know, president elect Obama is an Anuak/ Luo by his father. Remember the December 13, 2003 genocide against the Anuaks of southwestern state of Gambella, was carried out by Ethiopian government and Ethiopian highlanders in Gambella against Obama’s people. I recommend all Ethiopians to read the luo history and learn about Anuaks in now Ethiopia. You would learn more how inteligent these people are. They suppose to be thinkers and scientists, but reduced to slaves in their own land, the land Obama share history with, what a coincident. Obama must free all his people from Sudan, Uganda, Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic, Kenya and Gambella. It is time to give this genious group relief and their countries like Gambella. There is no doubt that Obama will help his people survive, who have been subjected to henious crimes like the December 13, 2003 genocide in Gambella against his people of Anuaks. Please Ethiopians read and learn about the people you brutalized, any crime commited against one in Gambella or Kenya is like that commited agaist all of Luos all over the world including president elect Brack Obama.
