    Debebe had given his life, proffession, devotion to Ethiopia and suffered for us. he is one of the very few strong icons of our country. we need to support and praise him for what he contributed and give him our commitment to stand up beside him and his party CUD.
    hope thier mission in Canada wil be as colourful and fruitful as it had been here in North America.
    let God be with them.

    Mr. Debebe Eshetu Welcome to America, you are an Ethiopian icon. Our first western style film actor along with your late colleague the famous Wegayehu Negatu, you were wonderful.
    Ato Debebe this is a dream come true for you to fight for democracy on the side many hopeful young Ethiopian like Wt. Burtikam Mideksa, Dr. Brehanu Nega among many others and to be thrown in jail at this stage of your life, is the highest sacrifices, someone can pay for his country. Congratulation ato Debebe you are our Hero too for the cause. Keep up the good work until the goal is achieved.

    Welcome, the most talented and beloved son of Ethiopia Artist Debebe, your determination and sacrifice for my freedom makes you so uniquely galant in the history of Ethiopa’s artists. I was there at the airport yesterday, I was also crying like some of the other
    Ethiopians who were there to welcome you. Particularly, one lady with the Ethiopian and Canadian flag in both hands was crying loudly as she saw you making a brief speech to the audience. Those tears shall dry with the realization of Kinijit’s dream and with the help of God.

    good to know they have been welcomed by our brothers and sisters.
    we have a moral obligation to show them our support in their struggle for democracy.

    these people represent us, we can not afford to loose them. let them have that feeling of belongingness.
    bravo Canada.
