We request that Habtamu Ayalew is allowed to travel abroad for life-saving medical treatment immediately and unconditionally.

Habtamu Ayalew is one among the few young prominent political leaders in Ethiopia. He was a public relation chief of the then popular and legally registered party in Ethiopia, the UDJ (Unity Of Democracy and Justice). He was the chairman of the peaceful “Millions’ Voices for land reform” movement, which was known for organizing peaceful public rallies and demonstrations all over Ethiopia. His politics has been the politics of love, peace, and reconciliation.

A year prior to the 2015 election, which the ruling party claimed to have won 100%, Habtamu Ayalew was arrested in June 2014, accused of being a “terrorist”, of which no shreds of evidence were presented by the prosecutor . After 18 months of incarceration in rat-infested notorious Ethiopian prisons, and inhumane torture at the hands of security forces, he was released on bail.

As a result of months of torture, he came out with acute hemorrhoids and serious kidney problems on both sides. His doctors have recommended that he travel abroad for medical treatment because they do not have the necessary tools to treat him.

His friends and supporters contributed money into a medical fund for his medical treatment. However, the government of Ethiopia, refused to allow him to travel. Habtamu Lawyers appealed to the court stating that his life is in danger to no avail. The court, often believed to be controlled directly by the government rejected the appeal.

Habtamu Ayalew is now in a critical situation. On June the 28th 2016 his situation quickly deteriorated and had to be sent to a hospital in a comma. Doctors within Ethiopia, couldn’t do anything other than giving him pain killers.

We are fighting to save the life of Habtamu Ayalew, and we need your help to do so. Your support of this petition will tell the leaders of the Eprdf, that they should allow him to leave the country for medical treatment immediately.

Will you please sign to help save Habtamu?

This petition will be delivered to:

Prime Minister of Ethiopia
United States Ambassador in Addis Ababa
United States State Department of State
Human Rights Campaign
Amnesty International
European Commission
United Kingdom Foreign minister

    We the hard working peasants should really attend this expo and tell these lazy rent collectors-landlords so called “developers” what we really think about the opression we suffer in the hands of these rent collectors sucking the life out of Ethiopians both within Ethiopia and abroad. Habtamu Ayalew got to this stage because the landlord he rented place from put a recording device and gave the TPLF spies all the recordings. Please watch the video link below Ato Addis Alemayehu who is a known Donald Trump copying and supporter adhari feudal rent collectors advocate trying to go to Ethiopia with his adhari friends.

    We have to respect first the human dignity. I do not understand how human beings come to decide who must be allowed, in case of sickness, to get treatment and who does not. How devil, inhuman or sadist must be a person or a group not to support let alone prohibit a person who is seriously ill and desperately needs medical treatment. This is also one of the serious indicatives for the behavior and nature of a government.
