Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, The Guardian and National Public Radio have all written or aired a program about human rights abuse and the coming May election in Ethiopia this month alone.
The interest of foreign medias is mainly due to the coming election or selection. The Diaspora Ethiopians activism since the stolen election of May 2005 for free, fair and transparent election finally has also got the attention of these foreign medias.
The new Oppositions back home, the UDJ and Blue Party, the Diaspora media, ESAT, role in the ongoing struggle is well covered on these foreign medias.
The role of Isaias Afeworki the dictator of Asmara on the coming Ethiopian election / selection is seen only in the eye of TPLF and some Diaspora oppositions. All failed to convince Ethiopians back home and in the Diaspora.
TPLF had made it clear for sometimes now if you do not dance to its tune you are an Isaias agent. Some Diaspora oppositions and their Websites might have endorsed this TPLF slogan by default. Their main issue now is what Isaias said on ESAT not the struggle back home. They declare that the struggle Must be for a regime change both in Asmara and Ethiopia. This only remains to be an empty slogan hardly to be taken seriously by foreign medias let alone by Ethiopians who are struggling for free, fair and transparent election !!!!
