Addis Abeba feeling heat of TPLF’s Ireecha Massacre

4 Oct

Posted by The Ethiopia Observatory (TEO)

Social media report show us with every passing hour some action by people that feel the humiliation at every turn and its institutions defiled. One example of that is TPLF’s massacre of our brothers and sisters at Bishoftu on October 2, 2016.

This has angered citizens. At every turn, one sees something burning. It is not candles or bonfire. It is cars and trucks and offices, mostly properties owned by the TPLF corrupt moguls.

Certainly, most of Oromia is busy today. One can see from reports that everywhere it is about funerals of Oromos the TPLF security forces are responsible for those young and adult lives lost at the 2016 Ireecha.

TPLF all over is in denials. People are surprised how HMD should say not a single bullet was fired. This man in the picture below, TPLF is saying, is carrying a spoon to feed the young man porridge, not bullet! Be the judge!

The truck in the picture is burning nearby Addis Abeba, our nation’s capital now the seat of corrupt TPLF nincompoops!

In a country suffering from TPLF moguls’ corruption that has killed the nation’s budding sugar industry, we have also received news report less than an hour ago about farmers setting on fire the sugarcane form of the Wonji Sugar Factory.

At every turn it is bad news for the TPLF. At Jimma University today Amhara and Oromo students have made mutual pact to launch a joint struggle to bleed the Woyane and lead it to its eventual collapse, according to a social media report.

At Adama, large commerical farms on the road to Sodere are burning. The loyalty is filled with TPLF Agazi forces. Mahlet Fantahun writes public services like telephone and internet have been disrupted.

Protest started in Furi, before it headed to Alemghena. All businesses are closed, while the Agazi are patrolling the roads up to Modjo. Unintimidated, the young are seen, as per Mahlet’s report, caucusing along streets. Addis Abeba is quiet, but transport problem is widely reported.


Death toll from Ireecha Massacre at Bishoftu reaches 678; likely to rise further

ፋሽስቱ ወያኔ በሕዝባችን ላይ በኢሬቻ ዕለት ለፈጸመው ዘግናኝ ወንጀል በትንሹም ቢሆን የዘራውን ግፍ እንዲያጭድ ማድረግ ተጀመረ!

    International community

    I am Indian, worked as a professor for abt 5 years since 2011. All these days, I never felt that Ethiopia is a democratic country. I never saw any kind of freedom to the public in Ethiopia. The govt is running against the principles of democracy. I felt it as totally dictatorship govt with autocratic policies. They conduct elections for name sake to elect their nominees only.

    For name sake that is for the sake of international funds from UN, UNDP, US and EU, they named their constitution as Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, but it is totally autocratic govt. As senior professor, I surprised to note that how the US, UN, EU and UNDP is kept silent where there is no freedom for the people, killing the people who ever raise their voice for freedom, no transparent news media, control over internet and telecom media and no support from the govt to public to fite against hungry and poverty, but brutal killings that to massacre killings. Public are living similar to the refugee camp of some other enemy country.

    When public protest in a peaceful and democratic way, no warnings, no lotty charge, no water shelling, no tear gas but directly shooting by the police of Govt on the chest or head of the public. I wonder how the govt kill their own people?

    It is certainly racist govt or fascist govt where TPLF police are brutally killing the oromo people. Under the cover of so many hidden and pseudo reasons, the Ethiopia Govt is misleading the entire international community, I believe.

    When people were brutally killed by the Ethiopia govt, like a Hitler govt, why the international Humanitarian organizations are keeping silent. The international community and Humanitarian organisations must come forward to assess the facts without any prejudices. It is very jard to know that how the human beings are killed by other human beings on political revenge, that too how the the govt kills its own people brutally.

    As an economist, well known to White house and Obama governance bureau, I have a question how the international community praises the growth of the GDP in Ethiopia, by ignoring the extent of free funds received by the Ethiopia from international community, that too when there is no transparent performance assessment of any kind at any level across the Ethiopian governance.

    It is very clear that all the funds received from the international community are diverted to maintain the excessive police force rather than to the public welfare. I saw the people at rural areas who are suffering for piece of bread and piece of cloth, where there are no incidences of visiting to those areas by the Govt and its representatives.

    I saw at several government offices in Ethiopia saying that ” Ethiopia need not answer to any foreign country”. I surprise, how they can say like that when they are enjoying huge foreign funds for the development of their country. Definitely every foreign country giving funds to Ethiopia in any manner has a right to ask its performance on the development of people and related human rights.

    I expect that an independent investigation is to be counseled immediately and all kinds of funds to Ethiopia govt from international community must be stopped until the investigation reports are analyzed on the facts.

    Thank you
