(Updated news) Arabsat to continue broadcasting ETV after negotiation

EMF – Arabsat took Ethiopian’s propaganda machine ETV off air on Friday next day after Ethiopian Federal Police brutal act against Ethiopian Muslims. According to our source; Arab Sat promised to start broadcasting ETV after holding discussion with Ethiopian diplomats yesterday.

Ethiopian activists reached out to Arabsat and asked ETV to be removed from platform, alleging ETV broadcasting hatred and false accusation against oppositions and Ethiopian Muslims. Source told to EMF, Arabsat asked Ethiopian government to give reasonable explanation why Police brutally attacked peaceful Ethiopians in Addis Ababa and other cities of the country.  According to EMF source, Arabsat will restart Ethiopian TV soon.
Activist told to EMF, “We need to come together and demand Arasat to stand with its previous decision and stop broadcasting EPRDF’s propaganda machine, ETV signals until it gets reasonable explanation on police’s hostility against Ethiopians”.


Ethiopia has been a land of absolute military dictatorship before and after the death of the late Meles Zenawi. It is believed that the current Ethiopian prime minister, Hailemariam Desalegn has no-say on actions taken by the military and security forces.

The move by Arabsat may give the opportunity to ESAT and other Ethiopian Media to gain control of covering events unfolding in Ethiopia. Ethiopian opposition Media accused the current Ethiopian regime for the killing of hundreds and violation of Human Rights in the country.

Following Thursday’s violation, Amnesty International released a statement calling on the Ethiopian government to end “repressive tactics against demonstrators”.

Recently, Arabsat stopped the broadcasting Syrian, Libya and other dictatorial regime, government Television channels including Press TV.

    Why is the topic chosen as misleading? “….hostility against ethiopians”?. From the news in detail Arabsat did that not as a hostility against ethiopians, rather in favour of ethiopians.
    Another contradictory text in this news is that “….opposition media abroad are being accused the current regime….”
    Pls fix your english first. You are dissiminating totally nagative information because of a brocken english. Sorry to say this.
    You are accusing Arabsat for hostility against the people and also accusing the opposion media because of the word “being”.
    Pls fix it. Thanks.

    Bravo Arab sat and all those who are concerned with oppressed people of Ethiopia!!!We need more pressure from the international community!!!

    My fellow Muslim brothers and sisters, be strong all the genuine Ethiopians are with you to the end!!!

    EPRDF is the enemy of every religion , every democratic society and every association that works for the betterment of humanity!!!

    Christians and Muslims in Ethiopia share not only land but also BLOOD (OBANG)!!! We are inseparable by the rubbish propaganda of ETV

    @ajere and eshetu, where is the misinformation you alleged for? First of all before you step up on such kind of social media for comment please go to language school to learn how to write and read english at a minimum level. EMF has reported the news in a professional manner unlike ETV,ETH radios and voice of Deutch velle. Thanks a lot EMS, Keep doing this phenomenal job

      @ Ambasel:
      why do you jump to attacking a person?
      The original text was full of Errors as I mentioned in my comment. The main sense of the information deviated from the fact because of minor english Errors, like I mentioned.
      Thanks to EMF they have corrected it and posted also my comment, so it seems as if my comment is now irrelevant. But you bark at me for nothing without understanding!
