    African Diaspora: Donor Dollars Aiding Political Repression in Ethiopia
    Ethiopia
    By Graham Peebles
    July 17, 2012 - dissidentvoice.org


    An ideological poison is polluting all life within Ethiopia, flowing into every area of civil society. Local governance, urban and rural neighbourhoods, farming, education and the judiciary all are washed in Revolutionary Democracy, the doctrine of the ruling party. Human Rights Watch, (HRW) in their detailed report, "Development without Freedom" (DWF) quotes Ethiopia's Prime Minister for the last twenty years, Meles Zenawi, explaining that:
    When Revolutionary Democracy permeates the entire society, individuals will start to think alike and all persons will cease having their own independent outlook. In this order, individual thinking becomes simply part of collective thinking because the individual will not be in a position to reflect on concepts that have not been prescribed by Revolutionary Democracy.
    A society of automatons is the EPRDF vision — the Borg Collective in the Horn of Africa, men, women and children of the seventy or so tribal groups of Ethiopia all dancing to one repressive tune sung by the ruling EPRDF.

    African Diaspora: Joy as stolen objects are returned to Africa
    Ethiopia
    The return to Ethiopia of historic objects stolen by fascist Italy reminds us of the imperialist crimes that scar Africa's past, writes John McLuckie

    An extraordinary event has taken place in one of Africa's most significant historic sites.

    On Monday 25 April, the third and final section of an ancient granite obelisk was returned to Axum - Ethiopia's one-time capital. It had stood in Rome since 1937, when it was taken there by the troops of Mussolini, the Italian fascist dictator.

    The celebrations marking the return were a powerful expression of national delight that a wrong had, at last, been righted.

    African Diaspora: Full-blown emergency threatens Somali region, UN warns
    Ethiopia
    ADDIS ABABA, 28 Oct 2004 (IRIN) - A full-blown emergency is threatening Ethiopia's Somali region, the UN warned on Thursday. Wells are drying up and malnutrition is beginning to set in, according to a joint UN rapid-assessment team sent to monitor the crisis.

    The team included the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, World Food Programme, UN Children's Fund and the UN Development Programme. It said the first "unconfirmed reports" of deaths from water shortages were beginning to emerge from the region, one of the most remote in the country.
