1 min read

Target: HaileMariam Desalegn, Prime Minister of Ethiopia
Sponsored by: The Unity For Democracy and Justice (UDJ)

MILLIONS OF VOICE FOR FREEDOM !We demand that no prisoners of conscious be in notorious Ethiopian prisons
We demand that the Anti-Terrorism Law be abolished immediately because: it violates many rights of the Ethiopian people and it is in contradiction with the Constitution.
We demand the displacement campaign that is being waged in the cities and the rural areas be stopped and appropriate solutions be sought to the problem.
We demand that solutions be sought to the problem of unemployment and high cost of living, and that measures be taken to improve the economic policy.
We demand that there be a fair competition within the business community; that the campaign of hatred and harassment be stopped; that there be an end to the system where the ruling party is the legislator and the merchant at the same time and that the private sector should play a major role in the development of the country.
We call for the ruling party to open up the political space and start the process of dialog and reconciliation.

  1. I insist u (our brothers in the government) not to miss this chance. Please let us help u to get out of the mess that u are in. may God help us all.

  2. That is the right direction a real sense of leadership has to move !! That is the way we should make our real sense of talk meaningfully relevant to our courageous walk, if not vibrant and irreversible political action!

    I would like to call up on all genuinely Ethiopians (back home and in the diaspora ) come up with their meaningful and constructive critics,opinions,ideas, views, and recommendation and most of all financial supports . Let us try to minimize ,if not get out of the political culture of messing with each other!! Let us be critical but productively!! We should not continue playing the politics of on and off ( sporadic) and go back home and blame each whenever we face failure ! let us try hard to control if defeat the very ugly political culture of ” If I am not a big boss or leader of a popular movement ,let it be doomed to fail.” Simply put, let us come together ,fight together ,and enjoy the success of the struggle for the creation of genuine democratic system!

    Great effort Semayawi and now UDJ !!

  3. I think instead of petition; it is better to use the legal system and prove their innocence. If the government does not proofs they must be released. Otherwise, asking release by petition undermines the law. Freedom must not be a grant but a vindication. Freedom must not be a blessing from individual or institution or political party, but freedom must be served by justice. Otherwise, telling us they are innocent without giving us any proofs does not make sense. What about those people who do not lobby groups or supporters? Dr. Berhanu and others were released, but they did not respect their words.

    I hate the policy of this government to be honest. I am not fun of the government. But I believe in justice, fairness and transparency. I do not believe in lobbying. You may lobby because you like or love them. If you want me to lobby you must show me they are innocent and do not tell me they are without evidence.

    If we do not use the justice system, the law will never protect anyone. I am not saying the justice system is good. But I suggest those are lobbying must use the legal system than people signature. What about if I am a murder and if I many people wanted me to be free? must I be allowed to go free and keep killing people more? I do not know about these people. I can say they are innocent or not because I have no knowledge.

    At the same time; I am afraid you can make peace by insulting any party. We must respect each other and respect authorities and make wwyet and discuss openly about everything in good faith without being carried away by affiliation. When I say all these I am not saying the government is good. I know the government is bad and selling our country. I detest this government policies. But let us unite and be sober and serious and handle things in balanced way.

    I am afraid I am not positive with attitude of UDJ giving order to the government to release prisoners. You are wrong. You must intimidate anyone to release anyone. You must use the legal system. Otherwise, if you are giving order it is like you are the government and the ruling party now. If you can give order political prisoners to be released why then you just go and tell the wardens to open the door of the prisoners? you have a problem of handling your affaires honestly. Why you always use inflammatory words or phrases? Why you threaten the government? I am saying this because I know such approaches will be counterproductive and backfire on you. Leave alone government, you do not intimidate people to get your way? That is not an element of democracy. I always try to read your articles but I get offended and find it very low standard and I stop reading it.

    Do not you have policies or memerya or discipline on how to communicate and or do business? why are you so negative . I know this government is antiEtthiopia, but recognize at the least their positive side. To be an opposition a blind hater. I suggest you use the legal system to set free the political prisoners instead of asking people who do not anything about the people. I do not know Eskinder was saying he wanted to overthrow the government. No government would allow to be overthrown by one journalist. I do not know about Andualem. Anyway, use the legal system so that you do not undermine the law.

      one day,I was trying to Google information about the Blue party peaceful demonstration a couple of days before the actual date and I ended up in one article posted in awramba times web. I read the article and proceed to read some of the comments. With out exaggeration; more than half of the comments were posted by you (I wonder how you got the time to write all that nonsense) and all of the comments were opposing the demonstration, opposing individuals who support it and supporting individuals who oppose it. Even you suggest that blue party should do the demonstration online. You and I also exchanged a couple of comments if you remember my name. In all of the comments, you claimed that everybody were wrong except you. You put your self as if you have some kind of supernatural intelligent to instruct others what to think and what to do and what is best. And now here you are doing the some. I think the only thing you know is hate and doing evil.
      Two thousand years ago, our lord told us to be careful about wolfs who came in sheep cloths. But, we were not careful 22 years ago when you and your evil friends came in sheep cloths to destroy our country and our religion. You and your friends even went to the press to announce how successful you are in destroying our holy religion. Now you tell us about respecting your law.
      Keep the law for yourself. The law of the devils is for the devils and not binding to Ethiopians.
      You are not only a wolf in sheep cloth, but more than that. If you stand in front of a mirror, you will see a dozen evil creatures (demons) on your back and shoulder ridding you. They will ride you until you end up like your evil boss.

      • Dear Alex,

        Look, you are angry ; you are not only fighting with me; but with yourself. Whatever you read about my comment? it is my comment; it may not be what you wish to hear; I am not Alex because I am Gezaee. I am entitled to my opinions but you can prove me wrong by way of reasoning only. No amount of curse, insult, name calling will ever make a dent on me. I would not be you in anyway. I would not never impose myself the way you are doing. I give my opinion and you can agree or disagree. I did not force you to accept my opinion. If you have communicated with me, then you have convinced me by reasoning. Your beliefs are not beliefs. I do not damn care what you think of me. I give a damn care about who you are and about what you think of me. It is damn upto you to think whatever you want and where you want. I do not damn know you who you are and I can say much about you.

        I did not destroy your religion; I do not even damn know your religion and I do not care about your religion. I have never destroyed anything in my life. You are falsely accusing me out of the blue because you did not like my comments? I can only assure people like you can make wars, not peace. You know war does not help anyone. You must know I am not going to bend to your ideas or your beliefs because your curse me. No ways. the only to influence me is by reasons, not cursing me for nothing will give the freedom you are hungry and you are only making enemies by thinking you can control people by intimidating them. I assure I never bend to accommodate irrational and hateful people. Alex, liberate yourself from hate first and then you can help others. while yourself are drown hatred , there is no point condemning others as hateful. You call people hateful people they do not talk what you would like to hear from them? This is primitivity. You can call me whatever you want; it is will not have any impact on me because such approach have any effect on me.

        • Gezaee
          I just want to inform you that I know you more than you think because I was reading your comments for a very long time now.

          Your hate toward Amaras is beyond any body to comprehend.
          Your vision to create hate between Ethiopians in general, and between Amaras and oromos in particular, is beyond imagination.
          Trying to reason with you is like expecting a dove from the egg of a snake.
          No reason influenced Hitler away from his plan to exterminate Jews.
          No kind of reason or argument can influence a devil from putting humanity into misery.
          Your mind was programed when you were in dedebit by the devil and it will not be reprogramed any more.
          I am sure 100% that you will die with your evil idea very soon.
          You looted money from starving Ethiopians that will be enough not only for you but also for your great grand kids. Now your job is to sit in your home and write hate and deceit. You also claimed you are not a woyane. What a wolf in sheep’s clothe!! If you think you really have some kind of knowledge and courage, stop posting your hate and deceit on the commenting part and write articles and post them as titles on the web. I don’t think you have the ability to do that. The only thing you, son of the bandas, can do is commenting around and butchering real history makers who didn’t have a second thought other than giving their life’s for their country. At the movement, Ethiopia is in a hostage situation. Eternal enemies of Ethiopia financed you to ruin our country and culture and religion…

          Personally; I do not ask you to stop your devilish work, I do not begging you or woyane to give freedom for any body or me. You can kill, oppress, loot, dance, laugh, sing or do what ever you want. That is what Satan’s do if not stoped. It is up to you to open your eyes and see what is going on and what is better for your and your people’s future, instead of over filling your stomach with looted food from starved Ethiopians.
          I am not intimidating you in any way what so ever. The fact is a couple of million people cannot maintain a hostage of 90 million people forever.
          I respond my first comment to you because I saw that, it was necessary to inform readers about your satanic mission; and not to reason with you what so ever! since i know no human can reason with the devil.

    • kkkkkkkkkkk! Legal system? What the hell are you talking? Have not you been on this planet the last 21 years? All legal systems have been exaustively tried. What remains is to use public pressure. UDJ and Blue party are doing good. Any party/org which exerts its pressure on Woyanes has to be welcomed.

  4. @Gezaee,
    Do not say I am not goverment supporter, becuas ur argument clearely shows that u are a member and propaandist for the same.
    As to the issue raised, the justice system is totally destroyed by TPLF. So know for sure that the court is completly turned out to be one of the ruling party suppression system. There was no evidence for instance to sentence Eskindir.

    • you do not know; you are just assuming; tell me who I am without knowing I am?This is main problem that there is no politics in Ethiopia. Everyone does not want you think. The EPRDF wanted everyone to follow them with no thinking. The opposition wanted everyone to follow them without questioning. The fact of labelling who they are without knowing is a crime and political gambling.

      • @Gezae

        Alex is right about you. I have seen you comment every where.You are pretending to be sheep while you are wolf.

        *You were wishing to have war with Egypt.
        * you insulted minilik the king
        * You are always negative for all opposition groups.
        *you hate amhara people.

        We all know that the unity between Amhara and Tigray is OVER. from now no it is not your thing to talk about amharas people.because they are looking forward freeing them self from racist woyane.

        We will never let our children to live as slave under woyane.

  5. Changed my mind after I found out UDJ’s moves against MEDREK. I don’t know where your destination is and I don’t trust you. Good bye…………..

  6. UDJ say they will get people to sign their petition and take it to the woyane court hoping to receive justice. Is this day dreaming or are these people in their right minds.

    We support the protest , but how is it that UDJ think that the fascist woyane court will listen to their complaints. If you have any belief in woyane court, ask the Eskinder Negas, Bekele Gerbas, Natnael Meknonen, Reiyout Alemu, Hassan Ali and many others and they will tell you about it.

    It is a waste of time. Do not waste your effort. If you are serious about the plight of the Ethiopian people , UDJ should stand up and say enough is enough and make a stand against injustice, lack of freedom and democracy, and demand for the immediate release of its leaders, journalists, farmers, students, soldiers, teachers etc languishing in woyane dungeons.

  7. Enezih turetegna shimagelewech sira fetew yikebatiralu. Forget about petition and other BS just join the government to work towards prosperity.

  8. Gezaee your hungry belly full and being blinded about the reallity on the ground it seems that you will leave the planet earth with your down lable personality for that matter even if you trashes the web pages with full garbage but woyanne has ist own world which is not other by the late woyanne pm , sebhat nega Abay tsehai and Bereket Simon who are now existing on their graveyard.

  9. Ahadu,

    Pardon,I do not understand why are trying tell me. I do not get it. You need to write properly so that I can understand what you are trying to say?

  10. UDJ,

    You have lost my trust big time. The era of treackery is long gone. You can higher a couple of people to sit down and list Amhara names, sprinkle it with few Oromo, Tigre, Sidama..etc sounding names and call it Ethiopian names and produce it to Bereket Simon who is already working in your wing. That sounds excellent. What a joke.

  11. ,Gezae are you honest? Do you believe Ethiopian legal system works for everyone looking current cases the Muslims representatives ones negotiators now they are suspects of terrorism but no evidence. Just put yourself on there shoes one year in prison we’re is your legal system? What about Riot or Eskindir

  12. Dear readers, this was one of the thousands of comments posted by this evil individual called Gezaee who claimed that he is not woyane. He was responding to the decision to do peaceful demonstration by the blue party. Read it and know how devilish he is. He is even worse than the ruling mercenary gangster groups. He is really really a wolf in sheep’s cloth. i just copy and past the comment he was responding to and the comment he wrote.

Selamawi party is longing to go to Kalti. Semayawi party sounds as if it is a govenment. If they can say all these, then they there is no need for the notice to office. These arrogants with swollen pride, Betiebet yeteweteru denkoroch. I would just round them and throw them to jail. They are telling us they need no permission? They are government by own rights. They are above the law. I would just round the ring leaders from their houses and throw them to jail. What really pisses off is their arrogance and ignorance. The fact that they have to tell their problem to somebody else shows they have no confidence in themselves. Which African leader is going to twist the will of EPRDF? Good luck Semayawi or yellow party. It sounds like Semayawi revolution visa vis orange revolution. I hope EPRDF will round them up from their houses this evening and throw them to jail until they understand right and obligation. Backward, primitive, denkoro, you want to do everything by force and you expect EPRDF to kneel down to your arrogance?””””

  13. To Gezaee
    Please just tell us one thing that will satisfy the readers. How much do you make
    a month from Ethiopian Embassy ???????? You must paid good amount of money.
    You are idiot and arrogant who has lot of hate for all Ethiopians. You are nothing but
    a ship in wolf cloth. Alex said it all
