Ethiopian Orthodox Church asks Ethiopians not to participate in millennium celebration unless the elected leaders of Ethiopia are released from jail


The Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church’s (EOTC) Holy Synod has called on the people of Ethiopia to stay away from any millennium celebration unless the elected leaders of Ethiopia are released from prison.

The Holy Synod warned the Woyanne regime that its decision to harm and do injustice against the elected representatives of the people of Ethiopia will have grave consequences.

    This is the real fathers call, hoping this VOA and jermen radio broadcst this message to ethiopian in back home so they can respond the call.

    Thank you fathers of the holy synod in diaspora

    This is what was missing from our spritual leaders. We should support and attend the church which in our side at this difficult time. We have to stop attending those “HODAM AND CAWOARD KASE”

    GOD BLESS EOTC
    THANKS

    Tank you,the true ethiopian spritual leaders! We should follow their step and call all our contacts in home and ask them to do the same. this is the least we can do in our part.remember “we all should know that we are responsible for their inprisenment.” Let us do what we should.

    thank you

    It is one of the most imprtant duties of EOTC to condemn the opressor government and to stand firmly
    by the side of Ethiopian people.
    It is also necessary to participate the Musilem
    spiritual leades .
    It is time to unite for Musilem leaders.

    Thank you for organizing this website.

    Wonderful announcement.

    No celebration..No danchin No eskeseta…as the courageous leaders are in jail. Ye Ethiopia Amlak yefaredenal. Thumb up also to Teddy Afro who expressed the same view on Ethio Admas News paper interview. We are proud of you Teddy. Ye kuret ken lej

    This is arguably the best way to respond to unwanted government! No celebration unless they free our leaders. It is vitally important for all Ethiopians to stick together regardless religions or tribes; we must show our unity at such difficult times.

    Say No Celebration, No Millennium unless they free our leaders! May god be with you all.

    God Bless Ethiopia!

    One of the great achivement which I have ever seen in my life in which our spiritual leaders challenge the so called government which doesn’t care about the majority of people but few and we , all ethiopians, should support the decisions and make sure that all political prisoners should set free without any pre conditions. God bless Ethiopia.
