Lecturer and Journalist Meskerem Abera’s Exeptional Guidance from Prison

Rarely do Ethiopian political prisoners write a 50 page document concerning the reasons for the Amhara insurgency. I enjoyed reading it and learning from it. I salute Meskerem Abera and look forward to her immediate release.
A mother of two, University lecturer and Journalist Meskerem Abera has written a masterpiece and those concerned about Amhara and Ethiopia must read. Modest to the core, Mrs. Abera urges us to improve the document, to set aside minor differences and work collaboratively and as a team.

I thank Journalist Habtamu Assefa of Hibre Radio for sharing the document with me and for conducting an interview on the subject

I also commend organizers of today’s protest march in Washington calling on the Biden Administrqtion to take action against Amhara genocide (attached).

    There will be more journalists who will use every chance they get to come here because they have seen how others before them who came here and found wealth they never imagined by talking and pushing war and destruction. Remember these were journalists who were so entrusted by the regime there that they were handpicked to accompany the president of the country. Others were enthusiastic members of the press who used to paint rosy picture of the governing regime present and past. Political asylum, who is eligible or not, is not like it used to be. It looks now that anyone can come here and talk bad about a seated regime and apply for political asylum. Then a human rights lawyer will take over and you will be allowed to stay and work until your case is finalized. That may take years. Meanwhile you will open up a YouTube channel or other social media platform spilling beans about the regime you were enthusiastically part of. Subscribers, followers and views will be swarming your channel which means easy gravy leading to riches you never imagined before. Hello Messay, The Abebe’s others like them! You gotta be worried now! You will have fierce competition coming at you!!! Btw, one of these Abebe’s is said to be involved in tracking and accumulating IP addresses of every Diaspora he comes across on the websites comment section we all participate. He spends most of his time eave dropping on everyone he likes and does not like. If you have left comment on this or other websites, it is a sure thing that that Abebe has your IP address and may be watching you now. I hope someone will ask law enforcement folks to rein in on him. It is a serious crime of violation of privacy which is protected by the constitution. It cannot be carried out without a warrant from a judge. Such accumulating of IP addresses is said to be the norm with most of the websites we all come to looking for the latest news about Ethiopia. That is wrong and someone should tell them to stop doing that to their entrusting audience. For now, let’s be ready to see these new asylum seekers spilling the beans about their former boss who they used to be in company with. They are too smart to enjoy both sides of the world. They know where it is all easy gravy!!!! So, all of you fools among us! Go ahead and give them the views, the subscriptions and the likes! They need that 3-bedrooms 3-baths house! They need that European model 3-row SUV!! Remember they are asylum seekers who came here on a first-class ticket. You have to support them, you fools!!!!

    Genocide whenever and wherever is committed is not a crime to the specific location where it is allegedly carried but also it is also a crime perpetrated against all humanity. That is the UN takes extra precautions and verifications before it declares a genocide was committed. It seems this world body does not have all the pieces to make the killings in Ethiopia a genocide. It does not jump on the band wagon with those who are screaming ‘genocide, genocide’.
