There was also a blanket ban on the internet over the weekend. “At least 97 people were killed and hundreds more injured when Ethiopian security forces fired live bullets at peaceful protesters across Oromia region and in parts of Amhara over the weekend, according to credible sources who spoke to Amnesty International. Thousands of protesters turned out in Oromia and Amhara calling for political reform, justice and the rule of law. The worst bloodshed – which may amount to extrajudicial killings – took place in the northern city of Bahir Dar where at least 30 people were killed in one day. ‘The security forces’ response was heavy-handed, but unsurprising. Ethiopian forces have systematically used excessive force in their mistaken attempts to silence dissenting voices,’ said Michelle Kagari, Amnesty International’s Deputy Regional Director for East Africa, the Horn and the Great Lakes.”  (Amnesty Amnesty International)

    I say, shoot those Inhumane murderer security forces in their streets, in their homes, in their neighborhoods whenever the opportunity presents itself. The only way government respects its citizens is if it fears them. I know I cannot and would not rest if my brother,sister, father, mother…are shot dead and lying on the street like a dog by some nameless,faceless, blind thug soldier following orders to kill their own people. I also have come to conclude that soldiers are not brave! They are just blind, coward, fearful robots who have no brain and heart to decide that which is inhuman and wrong on their own merit. It is a sorry excuse to just ” follow orders” and massacre ones own people!

    TPLF had been getting vital military intelligence from the undercover military agents working at INTERNATIONAL LIVESTOCK RESEARCH INSTITUTE (ETHIOPIA) ILCA / ILRI since time TPLF was fighting against Derg. Many of the so called livestock scientists go deep in the countryside among Ethiopian farmers pretending to examine the livestocks but in actuality they were spying for TPLF about the farmers political attitude. .

    United Nations funded http://www.ilri.org/ethiopia had been supporting TPLF doing so much military intelligence work on behalf of TPLF for decades while pretending to be helping Ethiopians in actuality the http://WWW.ILRI.ORG/ETHIOPIA are helping only TPLF and hurting Ethiopians.Even most Non-tigrayan Ethiopians had been fired from employment being replaced by TPLF SUPPORTERS continuously in the last 25 years.

    እጥቭኢቲትit is amazing and no surprise that dictators and tugs never learn from history and only and always wish to extend their power by taking innocent and unarmed civilians. The world looking and standing by is the usual way as long as their objective and interest is kept. These murderes, narrow ethnic based rulers eventually will fall and in this connected world they have no place to hide and the international conscious community will bring the Wayne tugs to justice. Shame on you you came full circle as you started your movement under the false objective of freedom. Now you doing much much worse than those government you topple. Now we all see that Woyane’s goal is to accumulate wealth with blood.. Greed will make you suffer and this is the legacy and pain you pass on to you children. Enough is enough come to civilization stop murdering, torturing people under the utter disgise of terror rosin . YOU ARE THE TRUE TERRISTOS WHO MURDER AND SYSTEMSTICALLY ABUSE EVERY HUMAN RIGHT SHAN

    The people of Ethiopia are not used to rising against their government. As a result those that lead do not realize that their grip on power equals to ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS.
