If EPRDF wants to leave Ethiopia intact and in a good footage then they should abolish Amharic as national language and adapt English as Federal language in Addis Ababa. The quality of education and the quality of educated people dramatically improves and the country future becomes bright lead by able talented educated people unlike the Amharic educated Ethiopians could not make a dent to the life of Ethiopians so long.
In terms of Tigray survival, so long Tigray regains all its ancestral lands from Metema to Lalibela, Tigrayans can live better life with out the so called Ethiopia. Tigray could have three huge tourist sites, Gonder, Lalibela and Axum, farming from Metema to Wolkiat Humora would be more than enough to feed all Tigrayans. Breeding domestic animals Tembein and Raya can provide Tigray needs for meat. Bring the smaller tribune to merge with Tekeze dam and build another two dams to provide more than enough electric power for Tigray (new republic Abysinia, capital city Tigraina). Beneshangule will be under the Tigrayans defense forces but autonomous state and Tigray will control Abay Dam and river in Benishangual. Do not forget Kunama, Irob and Afar are all part of ABYSINIA their capital city is TIGRAINA.
Remember Tigray, the future of ABYSINIA has huge Gold reserves all over Tigray, potash in Afar in billions, the largest in the world and other all kind of minirals in Woree vast land in Tembein.
Tigray/ABYSINIA could be better of by separation from the union than living with the union the population of the country will be around 150 million in 2050. Tigray does not use the fertile land of the south as we speak and will not use in future then why mess with the like of Oromo breeders and Amhara lazy asssess forever???? Get out from the union and assert your ancestral lands and territories to realize your struggle "WAELA SUWAAT".
