Prof. Alemayehu G. Mariam | March 31, 2007

Foreword: “The Whole is Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts”?

100,000 letters. 50 State Resolutions. 77 million people. We are on the move!
For many of us, the past few weeks have been pretty exciting times in Diaspora
grassroots activism. We managed to launch some notable mobilization efforts to advance human rights and democracy in Ethiopia. A White House letter writing campaign attracted the enthusiastic support of individual Ethiopians and civic and political organizations throughout the world. We were also able to engage some of the prestigious American universities to focus on human rights abuses in Ethiopia.

    History will be on our side to testify and witness,how the West betrayed over 70 million ETHIOPIANS. Supporting one individual dictator, is a wrong foreign policy and very short sighted.AFRICA today is closely following what is going on in ETHIOPIA.I JUST dont understand how one individual be an allie in fighting TERRORISM.What genuine supporters of DEMOCRACY should do is to establish democratic institution,support democratic movements.DICTATORS like Meles Zenawi,Musharaf of Pakistan,Mubarak of Egypt and those undemocratic government of the middle east considered allies will be overwhelmed by DEMOCRACY thirst people of their respective people.If actions are not taken today on what I proposed above.GOD forbid to imagine when the NUCLEAR wapons are in the hand of TERRORIST.What those millions and millions of people will do when they win over these dictators which is the inevitable.
