የአምቦ ከተማ ተቃውሞ እንደቀጠለ ነው፡፡

ለተቃውሞው ምክንያት የሆነው በቅርቡ ተገቢ ያልሆነ ግብር ነጋዴው ላይ መጨመሩ ሲሆን። ስርአቱ የህዝቡን ጥያቄ በሰላማዊ መንገድ ከመመለስ ይልቅ ሃይልን መፍትሄ አድርጎ መንቀሳቀሱ በተፈጠረው ግጭት አንድ የፌደራል ፓትሮል መኪና ሲቃጠል ሌላ ተሰባብሯል፡፡ እንዲሁም አንድ አውቶብስ ላይ የመሰባበር አደጋ ደርሶበታል፡፡ ከፍተኛ ተኩስ እንዳለና ወደ ወለጋ የሚወስደው መንገድም እስካሁን እንዳልተከፈተ ለማወቅ ተችሏል፡፡

በከተማው ያሉ አገልግሎት የሚሰጡ ተቋማት ሙሉ በሙሉ ተዘግተዋል። ከፍተኛ የግብር ጭማሪን ተከትሎ በሌሎች አካባቢዎች የተቃውሞ እንቅስቃሴ ሊኖር እንደሚችል አስተያየት ሰጪዎች ይናገራሉ።

A state crackdown has silenced ethnic Oromo people in Ethiopia, but grievances over land and rights, and a lack of political options, could reignite protests

Is Ethiopia at peace within itself because of TPLF martial law, as the PM seems to assure Addis Abeba-resident diplomats Thursday?

22 Nov

By Keffyalew Gebremedhin The Ethiopia Observatory (TEO)

If peace is not the mere absence of war, for a long time now Ethiopians have neither peace nor security to enjoy. The artificial and forced division between peace & security on one hand and rights and freedoms on the other further characterizes the profound deprivation Ethiopians have been relegated to.

Six days ago, Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn unequivocally confirmed to the international community on Thursday November 17, 2016 through their representatives in Addis Abeba – resident diplomats – that peace and security have been restored throughout Ethiopia.

Ethiopia’s drive to attract more South African investment is being hampered by a government that still distrusts business and a population wary of foreign domination.
