Re: We are all JAWAR today

Jawar himself admires Eskinder and takes him as genuine activist. Jawar was the first to defend him in public when PM Abiy threatened Eskinder and his Team. So I don't know why people find it difficult to the good in both these activists. Why should you love one and hate the other? This tells me you...

Re: We are all JAWAR today

That is how you showed your support for the grand rally organized by Eskinder that was cancelled by Qerro at the last minute That's a quote referring to the fanatics, not Eskinder. You can find my views of Eskinder are positive. Eskinder is hijacked by fanatics now. I'm not here to judge him saying...

Re: We are all JAWAR today

I would stand with the likes of Eskinder, too. This is principled. It's not favoring a person/ party.

Gash

If you listen to him, there's a chance you agree he is in the right on most things. I'm glad to hear you giving him partial credit for his views. But this killing and jailing doesn't work. see hgdef

We are all JAWAR today

Endangering world class thinker and activist is endangering all of us. Jawar is an iconic personality and helps the world understand the most complex social and political issues bewildering all of us.

Stand with Jawar and you stand with good!

Why does this thread fail to attract those who discuss internal Ethiopia politics seriously? This is the best analysis and last night development is proof

The DW article that got German Ambassador in Asmera in hot waters

autocrat from Asmara, who ruthlessly keeps his own people in chains so he can remain in power, is unlikely to enjoy being snubbed under the eyes of the world by a charismatic politician half his age. This article appeared on DW German. The author is not Eritrean by citizenship nor origin. He doesn'...

Re: Keeping it real by Ato Dawit

The difference is breathtaking. We are far behind in terms of tolerance of dissent. Just imagine what happens if these activists were in Asmera vs. Mekele

Re: PM Abiy turns TPLF into a political punching bag once again. HINT: it's not about TPLF

Zmeselo PM Abiy doesn't have absolute power like President Isayas. There are players in Ethiopia (outside of Tigray) who want TPLF to continue because they don't want PM Abiy to grow too powerful. Those players won't allow Hgdef to interfere. Jawar already is on record stating no hgdef hand inside E...

Fiam, I think you are angling Ethiopian internal politics from outside. I look at it from inside primarily. So we are not even going to have meaningful exchange I am afraid. I mean how well do you know the major players? There are players that are more or less on same page with weyane on issues. Wey...

Re: PM Abiy turns TPLF into a political punching bag once again. HINT: it's not about TPLF

Fiamet, PM Abiy calling Aboy Sebhat et al. out may be on point but that's beside the point. Sebhat calls Abiy out too. He recently told a media outlet Ethiopians don't respect Abiy let alone award him prize. He does that because by keeping the spotlight on Abiy, he hopes to distract the Tegaru elite...

PM Abiy turns TPLF into a political punching bag once again. HINT: it's not about TPLF

There's a growing and deepening dissent from the Oromo elites. By focusing on TPLF and keeping the spotlight on them, PM Abiy is taking the agenda setting ability away from the elites who feel anti ODP sentiments in Oromia. They say all politics is local. ODP doesn't run for election in TPLF home, i...

I was in Addis not long ago and a guy approached me and started talking. His university in the south was shut down due to security situation and he was willing to work any kind of work but unable to find any. He was clean and he sounded learned man. I have many families to help I told him as I felt ...

That interpretation is typical but I think it's naive. I think Weyane is preparing/ planning to march to the Sea, I hate saying this, when faced with civil war.

Is there a method to the madness?

TPLF top leaders and affiliated media outlets are churning out absurd amounts of pro Eritrea people propaganda, especially these past few days. It's true there has been a long standing Weyane propaganda to isolate hgdef rulers from Eritrea people but what is being witnessed today is markedly a whole...

Re: List of dangerous people and organizations that HE Laureate Aby need to take care of immediately

I totally agree with you Gash except one exception. Eskinder is highly overrated. Until a year and half so ago, I had an admiration to Eskinder. I admired his bravery to take risks. His understanding of Ethiopian politics has not been as impressive as some assume. Yes, I have read almost all of his...
