May 4, 2016:  San Jose, California – On Sunday, May 8, 2016 starting at noon, the San Jose Scottish Rite facilities on Masonic Drive in San Jose, could become a place of contention for Ethiopian-Americans and other members of the Ethiopian Diaspora community, as they may form against representatives of the Tigrayan Peoples Liberation Front (TPLF), the single party leading the corrupt and oppressive regime now ruling Ethiopia.
 
Appeals to Scottish Rite Officials
The Ethiopian-American Council (EAC) of North America, a non-governmental organization focused on the political and human rights of members of the Ethiopian Diaspora, has expressed concerns to Scottish Rite officials by asking them to disassociate themselves from the TPLF meeting.
 
Canceling use of the facility by the TPLF could snuff any civil upheaval while effectively telling TPLF officials that the Ethiopian Diaspora in America heartily feels that their false ministrations are deeply unwelcome in their communities.
 
 
Appeals to the Ethiopian Community
The EAC is also calling on all members of the San Jose Ethiopian community to boycott the meeting should it eventually take place. But, the pain felt by so many Ethiopians at the hands of the TPLF could foment protests at the Scottish Rite facility during the conference.
 
Officials of the EAC averred that they do not condone violence and have said that only boycott or peaceful demonstration should be the rule.
 
Irony of TPLF Meeting Regarding Amhara
Ostensibly, the conference is intended to reach out to members of San Jose’s Ethiopian Diaspora for discussions on the Social and Economic Development of the Amhara Region in Ethiopia.
 
The irony of the situation is that most members of the Ethiopian Diaspora have had to flee their homeland due to the terror and atrocities promulgated by the TPLF and imposed on the beleaguered peoples of Ethiopia, including people who have managed to flee to America from the Amhara region of Ethiopian.
 
Though cloaked as representatives of the Amhara National Regional State,  a TPLF surrogate it is important to note that representatives are members of the TPLF, and their cronies, who lead the corrupt and oppressive regime that now holds a bloody claw on power in Ethiopia.
 
TPLF’s Divide and Conquer Strategy
According to officials of the EAC, the meeting probably has a more nefarious goal than just discussing the social and economic development of the Amhara Region. The TPLF sent out letters of invitation for the meeting almost exclusively to members of the San Jose Ethiopian community linked to TPLF the Amhara Region of Ethiopia. Indeed, some have money to invest.

It seems an attempt to “make nice” with the alienated population it has so mistreated in the past. The treatment has been so bad that there are now a considerable number of Amhara Ethiopians living abroad . For the last 25 years, through land grabs, ethnic cleansing, and massive population relocation, the vast and fertile lands in Amhara, specifically the districts of Welqaite, Tsegede, -Tselemt and Wello, have been turned over to Tigray and members of the TPLF and their cronies.
 
The TPLF has dealt with the people of the Oromo region in much the same way. Huge swaths of Oromo land have been taken from the original inhabitants who have been living there for countless generations. Many students from Oromo have been jailed, tortured, or murdered for participating in protests against the unconstitutional land appropriations.
 
As many nations, Ethiopia has had to deal with some longstanding strife between ethnic and tribal groups. The purpose of most governments is to heal that sort of dissension among the peoples of a nation. The TPLF uses that history as a way of pitting citizen against citizen – promising fealty to one group only to retool and promise whatever is necessary to another.
 
With Knowledge of TPLF Cruelty, Others Have Canceled
Noting the extreme disaffection of the Swedish Ethiopian Diaspora community with the TPLF, Swedish officials prevented a meeting, similar to that scheduled in San Jose, from happening there, even though the Ethiopian Foreign Minister, Tedros Adhanom, was on hand to attend. Other TPLF meetings have been canceled in Philadelphia, PA, and Washington, DC.
 
(Presently a resolution has been introduced for approval by the Senate of the United States. It calls on the Ethiopian regime to construct a more inclusive government; to cease the jailing, torture, and even murder of peaceful political dissidents and journalists; to stop land grabs and ethnic cleansing; and to bring an end to other atrocities visited on the citizens of Ethiopia.)
 
Council Calls for an End to Ethnic Adversity
Using ethnic politics to distract the minds of citizens from the real issues affecting Ethiopian populations – specifically the economic reality of robber barons ruling the country and stealing its wealth by jailing, torturing, and murdering innocents – certainly benefits the TPLF and its greedy cohorts. Under the TPLF regime, Ethiopia is not a “rising democracy” as so many western politicians have announced – it a “rising blister” ready to burst.
 
EAC leadership has urged all the peoples of Ethiopia to unite against their true enemy – the iron-fisted rule of the TPLF and its ethnic politics. The main scheme of the TPLF government is to endure by destroying the national pride of Ethiopians and destroying the spirit of being One Ethiopia for all the peoples of that beautiful country situated on the Horn of Africa.

  1. Tigres outnumber Amaras in San Jose (Bay Area) . High number of Hodam Amaras in the bay area are married to Tigres with their marriage in so much shaky (on and off status) which is weird . The Tigres-Amara married partners keep separating and getting back together repeatedly it is hard to keep track when they are separated or when they are back together one thing is for sure it is all for money, they separate for money then they get back together for money. when they are together they conspire to make money BY VICTIMIZING OTHERS then they separate to keep the money away from their partners . Children are also used to extort money from each other in so many dispeakable ways in their marriages. The organizers of these event are these Amaras mostly from Gondar that sold their soul for money who want the rest of Amaras to be miserable like them by sleeping with the devil. The Azeb Mesfin copy cats they think if they act like Azeb Mesfin they can be rich like her some day even the men think like that . I urge Amaras nomatter what not to start personal relationship with these people that are behind this event.Your life will be a living hell. The TPLF are trying to find more hodam Amaras to fight against the Oromia , Gambella,the Amaras own siblings who are the real conscious Amaras , Ogaden , Afar and so on that way TPLF/Tigrayans continue to look honest by blaming the Amara for everything that is wrong in that country even they were the makers and shakers of all of Ethiopia for 25 years.. . These so called Amara regional national governors need to gather Tigres and preach to them how Tigres should stop monopolizing the Ethiopian economy ,how Tigres should stop killing people , how Tigres should stop imprisoning people and so on rather than trying to tell Amaras in San Jose area what is better for us or our brothers and sisters back home. There are 2 million Amaras in Sudan leaving as illegal immigrants if these so called governors want to talk to diasporas in regards to Amara’s situation they should start with the Amaras in Sudan before trying to make the San Jose Amaras be the voice of the Amara diaspora. We got so many Amaras that are on the way to San Jose drowning in the Mediteranean Sea while the so called Amara governors calling this meeeting FEAST REGULARLY EATING and drinking alcohol with the TPLF mercinaries bought spending public money for their personal uses .

  3. ANDM, so called Amhara national democratic movement has been the right hand of Tigre people liberation force established by Tplf with Bereket simon, an eritrean as the leader of this group to systematically exterminate the amhara.
    when it comes to amhara, tplf did not even try to mask their enemty and hatred towrds amharas. in oromo and other regions , tplf appointed local cadres to be heads of these ethnic regions. the exception with the amhara region is that tplf appointed tigre and eritrean cadres to take charge of amhara region. amharas have continued to be evicted, displaced, massacred. the tigre cadres who run ANDM do not allow any amhara grievances to be discussed in ANMD meetings.

  4. The Amhara national regional sate meeting
    The Governor of this region is working for the TPLF, for example few months ago, on the public meeting, he told to Public do not ask about Welkait people. Because his boss told him not listen. This was shame on him, now they come to USA, and saying we care about Amhare people how come? It is fake, and no one believes them.
    The Welkait people’s freedoms took a way by TPLF, and taken their lands. The Welkait people have freedom since God created the earth, and the land is belonging to them millions of years.
    If some one come and take your house, your land how do you feel?
