Yigermena lo!(ይገርመና ሎ!) While Tigrai is hosting thousands of Eritrean refugees the foot soldiers of Isaias Afeworki are conspiring with known enemies to hurt Tigrai and the people!... ትዝብት ነው ትርፉ...እንጂ ቀኑ ሲደርስ እንተያያለን!! Thanks, Liliti for transcribing the recording.(Must Listen!!)

The Coronavirus Is Emboldening Autocrats the World Over
In late March, Philippine strongman Rodrigo Duterte rammed a bill through his country's parliament that granted him vastly expanded emergency powers, ostensibly to fight the novel coronavirus. The bill authorized Duterte to reallocate the national budget as he saw fit...

Is the Norwegian Nobel Committee Having a Second thought?
(Aigaforum) June 11, 2020 - The Norwegian Nobel Committee in an unprecedented manner is forced to release a press release affirming their decision to award the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize to Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia. According to those familiar with the Nobel Committee work, this is unprecedented for the Nobel Committee to do. The Committee doesn't usually issue such a letter lightly!
See Also:- Democracy imperiled in Africa by 'reformers' turned dictators
It is often forgotten that the worst dictators are often, early in their careers, lauded as reformers. In Iraq, Saddam Hussein was initially embraced as a "pragmatist"...Now, it appears, another Nobel laureate, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed , may be heading down the same path. Perhaps buoyed by the praise he receives on his frequent post-Nobel trips abroad, Abiy on Wednesday announced that he would remain in office beyond the end of his term. For all of Abiy’s enthusiastic and, at times, naive peacemaking abroad, his tenure has exacerbated ethnic tensions at home. Reelection was no certainty, but his decision to seek to hold power extra-constitutionally could precipitate conflict in Africa’s second-most populous country.
Enlightenment: Tigrean Zeitgeist
Aesop 06-11-20 - Tigreans have embarked on the age of enlightenment that future generations will commemorate. The different positions, organizations, and expressions we witness today are watershed moments that future generations will look back for reference. Alas! Tigrai is organically molding her own Diderot, Montesquieu, Rousseau, Voltaire, etc. etc. But what is enlightenment?

Dictatorship or Democratic Federalism -Whither Ethiopia?
Makonnen Tesfaye; June 10, 2020 - It is a sad day for democracy, self-determination and federalism in Ethiopia. The blatantly unconstitutional, indefinite postponement of the Ethiopian General Election and the indefinite rule by the unelected Abiy EPP Cliques is the final act that undermines the nascent democracy, the hard won self-determination and federalism of the nations, nationalities and peoples of Ethiopia...

Speaker of Ethiopia's upper House resigns after polls postponed
ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - Ethiopia's upper house speaker resigned on Monday in apparent protest at the postponement of planned elections in the Horn of Africa country over the coronavirus, a sign of growing tension between her party and the government.

The quest to save Ethiopia one more time has started in earnest. According to our reliable source, the following document and letter were delivered to more than sixty leaders of governments; international governmental and non-governmental organizations; and all neighboring countries (except Eritrea), the African Union; Permanent and Non-permanent members of the UNSC; UNSG; European Union; Regional organizations, and international advocacy groups such as ICG. The international community is on notice and will not have the luxury to say I did not know if God forbid, the worst comes true!

Cover Letter to Memorandum on Averting the Looming Constitutional and Political Crisis in Ethiopia

Crisis and Negotiation
Aesop 06/09/2020 - Ethiopia is heading towards a crisis. Ury and Smoke (1985) tell us that a crisis has four dimensions. A crisis comprises high stakes, gives little time, is shrouded by uncertainty, and offers narrow options. Parties could raise stakes either deliberately or because they make wrong calculations (mistaken expectations). They may condense the time available to address a problem intentionally or due to reckless management. Parties in crises tend to be uncertain because they lack...

Prime Minister Abiye Ahmed: The Man Who Sold Ethiopia, and Betrayed Africa
Hailemariam Abebe june 09, 2020 - First the facts. By his own admission in the public square and since then, corroborated by the testimony of Ato Andargatchew Tsege, it is, beyond the shadow of any doubt, that Prime Minister Abiye, had served as a foreign agent while in a key position in the National Intelligence & Security Service (NISS) of Ethiopia! But don't just be shocked but reflect! Every Ethiopian with a conscience, with love for Ethiopia and its people...

Part II: Debunking Ethiopia's Higher Water Resources vis-à-vis Egypt:A Closer Look at the Hydrologic Outputs - Stream water Outflow
Tekleab Shibru (PhD) Associate Professor of Geomatics, Chicago State University 06-07-20 - Ever since Ethiopia embarked on Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), to generate electricity that would light 60% of 114 million Ethiopia’s population, Egypt has engaged in an inexorable diplomatic campaign of decrying Ethiopia’s right to use its natural resources. This rather fabricated victimhood is resonating with the larger international community given Egypt’s desertic climate.

Amnesty's Report: Don't "kill" the messengers
Tibebe Samuel Ferenji June 5, 2020 - Often, we have the intention to believe that human rights abuse is unique in countries where tyranny has reigned. We will be hard-pressed to find a country where human rights abuse does not exist. However, there is a big difference between those who pay attention to any human rights violation and those who ignore it.
Despite snags, Ethiopia scales up massive tree-planting campaign
Braving a heavy downpour, hundreds of farmers spent a full day planting 20,000 acacia seedlings on a barren hillside outside the town of Buee in southern Ethiopia last year. They were responding to a call last July from Abiy Ahmed, who wanted to plant 200 million trees in a single day, But while the farmers had "great expectations", they say that nearly a year later -- as Ethiopia gears up to celebrate World Environment Day on Friday -- the results in Buee are a disappointment.
Correlation between COVID-19 and Country's Urbanization

What is wrong with the Tigreans?
S. Fitsum 06-05-20 - The political debate in Ethiopia in the month of May was more heated than the preceding months. The debate was mainly driven by the anxiety of Covid -19, the extension of the elections, discussions of constitutional interpretation, and Abiy Amed's threat against those who opposed his proposals.
How to Keep the United States in the WHO
Fortunately, neither the U.S. Congress nor the U.S. courts need stand by: the president's call reflects a misunderstanding of both the WHO and its limitations and his own authority to withdraw from it unilaterally. The United States' departure from the WHO is not as simple as Trump assumes. Legally, the president cannot just withdraw unilaterally from the organization. A joint congressional resolution specifying that the United States could withdraw if it both provided one year's notice and fully met the current year's financial obligations. That resolution also authorized annual State Department appropriations for U.S. membership, thus invoking both Congress's power to approve treaties and its power of the purse.

What's behind the Ethiopia-Sudan border row?
The border between Ethiopia and Sudan is the scene of occasional fighting. Recent deadly skirmishes could however complicate matters between the two countries.Amid heightened tension along its border with Ethiopia, Sudan swore in a new defense minister.

Human Rights Violations Have No 'context' Mr. Daniel Bekele
Dawit Abay 06-03-20 - Mr. Daniel Bekele used to work for Human rights Watch and he is right now the head of the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission. In response to the recent report by Amnesty International on human rights violations in Ethiopia, he has a signature response which runs roughly like this, 'the report by Amnesty International certainly should be taken...'
