KONY12, the less than 30 minutes video about the "invisible children" of Uganda widely viewed on Internet estimated by 100 million people around the world. KONY is the African Osama Bin Laden with no money on his head. We will see if this man will be apprehended in 2012 as is promised by the producers of the video. However, there was another video of less than three minutes that is widely viewed on Internet by the Ethiopian Diaspora on the weekend as well as on Lebanon Television by many Arab audiences. The video of defenseless Ethiopian woman beaten up on Lebanon street by thugs to be loaded to car like merchandise. She resisted them and finally ended up in hospital and the worst news of her death came this morning.
Al Jazeera reported quoting one good for nothing Woyane Cadre, Asaminew Debelie Bonssa, that she hanged herself in a psychiatric hospital. The Ethiopian Mafia in Beirut failed to protect her. Shame on him and all who were hiding behind the door while the thugs torture her. The Ethiopian Mafias in the Middle East are the profiteers from kickbacks of sponsoring housemaids for barbaric house masters.
Now we know her name after death. Alem Dechasa is a daughter maybe a mother, aunt or sister in law for one poor Ethiopian family. The poverty that sent her to make money in Lebanon ended in tragedy. How long our sisters should be treated as money making machine for Woyane Regime who is colluding with their abusers by looking the other way rather than losing blood business.
Alem Dechasa's only crime is coming to Lebanon to make some money for her poor family back in Ethiopia. The poverty and death she run away finally caught her in a very tragic way. If she had been beaten back home at least there were family members to run for her defense. There was no one on Beirut street that day for our sister. I am crying at this moment for letting her down !!!.
The least I could have done for her was to protect her from the heavy blow she endured that day. I wish I should take that blow for her. There was no one for her that will be a shame for all of us we call ourselves Ethiopians. We men the defender of family honor failed her. Our sisters did not call for help, no one say "Ou Ou", it was only her fainted voice we heard while the Arab thugs jump on her.
These cowards and the Woyane representative both are responsible for what happened to Alem Dechasa. Alem is now a symbol of Barbarism against Ethiopian women in the Arab World. I would like to make it clear that the case of Alem Dechasa is not closed even after her death. Independent body has to investigate how she came to Lebanon and all she met while in Lebanon until her death.
There is no one to speak on her behalf and she died with her secrets of abuse and torture. We watched the glimpse of her story thanks to the people who made the footage public. What happened after that until her death is still not known. The Ethiopian Mafia in Beirut has no credibility to speak on her behalf and we demand international women organizations to send their team and come with a report on Alem Dechasa. She is the "Visible Woman " for the many "Invisible Ethiopian housemaids" in Middle East.
If there is anything to learn from her death it is now not tomorrow. Many Ethiopian maids return to their home country in body bags if they are lucky. Some whereabouts have been unknown and no one bother to find. This modern day slavery can only be defeated first and foremost if the Diaspora Ethiopian Women take this fight to the doors of Arab Embassies who are torturing and killing our sisters.
Enough is Enough !!!! Let the March in the name of Alem Dechasa begins in Lebanon Embassies all over the world. Abusing of Ethiopian women has been possible because Ethiopian women have no one to speak on their behalf. We are their defenders !!! The so called Ethiopian Council is part of the problem because it is profiting from shipping our ladies for money. It is all about the money generation of our women while they are under captivity.
Ehete Alem Dechasa forgive us for not coming to your defense. We will make sure that your name will be read together with Yenesew Gebre who was martyred on 10/11/11 rather than being humiliated in his own village. You preferred to take your own life after being publicly humiliated by the thugs in the Lebanon. We will not rest until justice served.
