Why are human rights essential?

If we respect ourselves as people and want the world community to respect us and support our causes, we must face up to the demanding responsibility of owning and leading the struggle for human dignity, rights, the rule of law and representative governance ourselves. No one will do it for us. In terms of justice, rights, fair distribution of incomes and access to opportunities, sustainable and equitable development and the like the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) controlled and led government of Ethiopia has failed. This is one part of the story. The other is what the rest of us are doing to redress the situation. Blaming others, including the repressive regime is easy. Offering a compelling alternative is hard. Read more in PDF PDF….

    THE ISSUES OF human rights are subjective. it reads wonderful on paper. Every body knows as well as I do the notions of Human Rights kick in when it suits the interests of the west. I believe the solution of addressing every aspects of good governance is not by throwing barrages of criticism or opting to adopt the polemical or polarised views against the incumbent government. ever. Every week I read about the never ending articles of cursing and discrediting the government. You have a legitimate rights to have different perspectives regarding how the government go about their business. However, what is the best way forward? I don’t think that it serves no purpose carrying on the next decades with polarised position. Politics is an art of compromising but the so called oppositions in diaspora failed to appreciate that. I understand some of you might have made a carrier out of it,but we need people in politics who think outside the box. I am tired of your propagandas of stating the obvious years in and out. we need genuine politicians who lay a foundation for a future generation, we need politicians who preaches how to bridge the differences. Enough is enough; stop the politics of Hate!!!
