Ethiopians to hold protest rally against China’s policy on Ethiopia


A coalition of several Ethiopian groups are coming together to organizing a protest rally against China’s political, financial and technical assistance to the genocidal regime in Ethiopia.

The first protest rally will be held in Washington DC on August 5, 2010 at the Embassy of China.

Address: 3505 International Place NW, Washington DC 20008
Date/Time: Thursday, August 5, at 9:00 AM

With China’s technical assistance, the Meles criminal regime has been able to deny the people of Ethiopia access to media such as news web sites and radio programs. A few months ago, VOA and DW, which have over 20 million listeners in Ethiopia, have been jammed by Meles and gang with technology provided by China. Last week the independent Ethiopian Satellite TV (ESAT) has become the latest victim of China’s technical assistance to the Meles regime.

The organizers call on all Ethiopians in the Washington DC area to come to the Chinese embassy and make your voice heard. China, Stop Supporting Terrorism and Dictatorship in Ethiopia!

    A very potent way to get the attention of the the US to side with the diaspora, now they will know who is really a friend of the US. The dictatorial regime of Ethiopia has been skimming US tax payers money claiming to be ally of the US while eating with another fork with the Chinese in hopes of embracing China’s assistance if US economy and political importance ever fails but we Ethiopians in the diaspora are living in the US paying our taxes, being honest citizens and/or residents, some of us serving in the military and believing that the US will once again rise economically and in all ways that has made the nation great. America please wake up and know your real friends, we Ethiopian in the diaspora and Ethiopians oppressed in our home land are the ones who regard the US as our second country, always being thankful for giving for thousands of Ethiopians a safe haven during the communist regime of derg, always praying for the US so that GOD will always make the US great and powerful in order to protect the basic human rights our Mighty Creator God has given to all human beings regardless of our race, origin and religion.
    Thank You

    I think the organizers of this protest should invite other African people that are also affected by Chinese influence in their countries, as they say–the more the merrier.

    It is great, but what about The US and Britain. They are at the forefront of helping and funding Zenawi. To me china follows their leads.

    Let this backward communists know that their blood sucking policy,
    give 0ne take 3 for free policy has to come to an end.This retarded old comunists didn’t regret to kill in Tiamin Square thousands of freedom thursty young chinese .Now they want to replace the French, British , and American from Africa by looting , robbing africa in day light.The only difference from the European and America are the nose and the eyes.This small eyes can see the gold and the diamond and the flat noses can smell better where the oil is. Nothing stop them not to work with dictotors and genociders and killers for dollar.We are sick of thier simply dump cheap , dangeorous product for human being and mother nature.They sell killer pet food, poor quality car Tires, fake toothpaste. dangeorous baby food and baby playing staff.Do you know millions of chinese and Africans are dying in poisened cheap productof china.We don’t hear it because in Africa there is no documented figures . Go habesha go and tell them enough is enough..we don’t need your roads.

    Yes that is a good job.It is the Chinese helping the Zenawi government and hack personal emails,wiretap phones,jamm radios and TVs and even breach personal accounts.
    The world has to know them,they are crooked people.Especially,the Americans have to be aware of this crime.
    This should be done by any means.

    OF GOG AND MAGOG, WHO ARE IMPRISONED IN THE NORTH

    WHEN Alexander was king and had subdued countries and cities, and had arrived in the East, he saw on the confines of the East those men who are of the children of Japhet. They were more wicked and unclean than all (other) dwellers in the world; filthy peoples of hideous appearance, who ate mice and the creeping things of the earth and snakes and scorpions. They never buried the bodies of their dead, and they ate as dainties the children which women aborted and the after-birth. People ignorant of God, and unacquainted with the power of reason, but who lived in this world without understanding like ravening beasts. When Alexander saw their wickedness, he called God to his aid, and he gathered together and brought them and their wives and children, and p. 128 made them go in, and shut them up within the confines of the North. This is the gate of the world on the north, and there is no other entrance or exit from the confines of the world from the east to the north. And Alexander prayed to God with tears, and God heard his prayer and commanded those two lofty mountains which are called ‘the children of the north,’ and they drew nigh to one another until there remained between them about twelve cubits. Then he built in front of them a strong building, and be made for it a door of brass, and anointed it within and without with oil of Thesnaktîs, so that if they should bring iron (implements) near it to force it open, they would be unable to move it; and if they wished to melt it with fire, it would quench it; and it feared neither the operations of devils nor of sorcerers, and was not to be overcome (by them). Now there were twenty-two kingdoms imprisoned within the northern gate, and tbeir names are these: Gôg, Mâgôg, Nâwâl, Eshkenâz3, Denâphâr4, Paktâyê, Welôtâyê5, Humnâyê, Parzâyê, Daklâyê, Thaubelâyê6, Darmetâyê, Kawkebâyê, Dog-men (Cynocephali), Emderâthâ, Garmîdô`, Cannibals7, Therkâyê, Âlânâyê, Pîsîlôn, Denkâyê8, Saltrâyê9. At the end of the world and at the final consummation, when men are eating and drinking and marrying wives, and women are given to husbands; when they are planting vineyards and building buildings, and there is neither wicked man nor p. 129 adversary, on account of the assured tranquillity and certain peace; suddenly the gates of the north shall be opened and the hosts of the nations that are imprisoned there shall go forth. The whole earth shall tremble before them, and men shall flee and take refuge in the mountains and in caves and in burial places and in clefts of the earth; and they shall die of hunger; and there will be none to bury them, by reason of the multitude of afflictions which they will make men suffer. They will eat the flesh of men and drink the blood of animals; they will devour the creeping things of the earth, and hunt for serpents and scorpions and reptiles that shoot out venom, and eat them. They will eat dead dogs and cats1, and the abortions of women with the after-birth; they will give mothers the bodies of their children to cook, and they will eat them before them without shame. They will destroy the earth, and there will be none able to stand before them. After one week of that sore affliction, they will all be destroyed in the plain of Joppa, for thither will all those (people) be gathered together, with their wives and their sons and their daughters; and by the command of God one of the hosts of the angels will descend and will destroy them in one moment. –The Book of the Bee

    Tezbit, you know what the problem is ..you are so stupid or naiv to understand why the chinese are in Africa.They are not there to teach you how to make the dumb product of china rather to steal your natural resources by dealing with dictators like your cousin Melese ,sell everything for money ..What a hell can we get from china than kiling our domestic products by their cheap products produced by cheap labour of prisioners of conciense.You even didn’t ashamed to mentioned the Japanese Economist..that refer only to you and Melesewian.Do you know that most Ethiopian texitile factories and small businesses couldn’t compute with Chinese product..just they produce thier product by paying zero salary..these people are good or nothing.

    tezibit,
    If I understand you right, your philosophy is to get rich by every means of necessary like China…even if you exercise modern slavery,by paying people less than $0.50 an hour for seven days a week without overtime pay and sick days…without employee rights…without freedom of speech, press and human rights…wow! Hard to believe! Shame on you for insulting hardworking poor Ethiopians. And Congratulations! You are highly qualified to be the next dictator to use and abuse Ethiopians. You are the one who is DISGUSTING!

  13. GINBOT on

    My Ethiopian brothers and sisters if we think a dictator regime like China will stand for a freedom of our people, we are kidding ourselves. China is about profit and they don’t care if our people die so long as they profit from it. Look at what happened in the Sudan (Darfur). If you believe the Chine’s government is in Africa to promote freedom and democracy, you are wrong. They are there to exploit our continent. We can only achieve our freedom if we are willing to die for it. Let us think about our children, not ourselves. Let us die for our freedom!!!!!

    I saw a recent documentary on ER Forum someone posted about Nile, Ethiopia and Egypt. The narrator discussed about how funding is important to build dam on Nile to fight the climate change that will affect Ethiopia big time. I am sure everyone supports it, but unfortunately it is under Weyane which the plan is most likely to outsource it and continue the development of Tigray. I heard Weyane wants to bring the Axum kingdom, it is because of Nile power of Pharoah, occured and enlightenement happened that is how Nile is powerful. At the same time, it could devestate the empire because of the climate change, drought that destroyed the power Pharoah. Back to Weyane, so the goal of this Nile dam is most likely not for entire Ethopia. That being said, this dam I still support becasue when climate change comes, its going to strike Ethiopia and devastate the people. Because of this who ever builds it, I support the dam. In the documentary, it said the World Bank, in support of Egypt refused funding for the dam. Then the government turned to China for this funding and China was willing and funded for this dam. My point is, if the documentary is true, we should focus on criticizing China for the support of human right abuse and jamming of the media but not for development especially the dam. We also have to becareful China is going to be the most powerful next to USA, hopefully without Weyane, China will continue to support in development as there is no reliability from the West. Of course there is always going to be I scratch your back you scratch mine. Of ocurse China is not going to build the dam without something. Anyways, we need to be cautious that is all. Criticize them to stop human right abuse of Weyane by China’s support and the jamming of satellites.

    Tazabit,

    First off, you have to respect and defend your own people regardless of the circumstances.
    Did you say we Ethiopians are lazy…? Where is your data came from ?
    As far as I know, we Ethiopians are highly educated, and hard working above all peace loving people. I have been in N. America the last twenty years, and I can tell you a lot about Ethiopians achievements.
    In Osama’s administration alone, there are more than five Ethiopians who ranked the highest position. Dr. Mandefro of Harvard is one example. All USA medical schools, and Universities have at least one Ethiopian Professor or Physician. In all top universities, you will meet at least one Ethiopian student in every faculty. Not to mention those Ethiopian pilots for US Air, Business owners, and hard working families with two jobs.
    Are we Ethiopians still lazy ? No, I called you lazy and disrespectful rather for not finding out where and what infact Ethiopians are doing ! May be, you have no access to these areas listed above, and you have no way to know where we Ethiopians really are !

    Chin is a f—u state now. In the name of the proletariat and peasant it amasses its capital. China’s economy follows no rule at this time. The problem will be when the shit hits the fan. they are investing in every dectatorial region known to this world. These poor third world dectators not only they are unrealable economically they don’t stay in power that long. Time will tell how this Chinese capitalism survives in the future.

    Green Dam Youth Escort (simplified Chinese: 绿坝·花季护航; pinyin: Lǜbà·Huājì Hùháng) is content-control software for Windows developed in the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Originally under a directive from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) to take effect on 1 July 2009, to be mandatory to have either the software, or its setup files accompanied on a compact disc or pre-installed on all new personal computers sold in mainland China, including those imported from abroad, but then changed to voluntary.[1][2] End users, however, are not under mandate to run the software.[3]
    As of 30 June 2009, the mandatory pre-installation of the Green Dam software on new computers has been delayed to an undetermined date.[4] However, Asian brands Sony, Acer, Asus, BenQ and Lenovo etc. are shipping the software as was originally ordered.[5]
    On 14 August 2009, Li Yizhong, minister of industry and information technology, announced that computer manufacturers and retailers were no longer obliged to ship the software with new computers for home or business use, but that schools, internet cafes and other public use computers would still be required to run the software.
    Devoid of state funding since 2009, business behind the software is on the verge of collapsing by July 2010. According to Beijing Times, The project team under Beijing Dazhang, one of the two companies responsible for development and support of the software, have been disbanded with their office shut down; also in a difficult situation, the team under Zhengzhou Jinhui, the other company, are likely to suffer the same fate at any time. The 20 million users of the software will lose technical support and customer service should the project cease operation.[7]Wikipedia

    The US or the UK or the rest of europe have never been ,and will never be, friends of Ethiopia or the rest of the black race. Neither are the chineese or indians. But, since the politics of the world runs by a common interest of alliance and blocks of powers, the strategy of going around the ignorant US government and its foreign policy with china on the front page is beneficial for Ethiopia.

    Hi, Elias. Why are you not publishing some of my comments? What wrong did I wrote. I only mentioned some secret servis organizations om certain countries are involved in the internal matters of African countries. And that some countries including sweden are financing Weyane. Is that not true?

    i completly agree with enatee. thankyou for letting tazabit know how we ethiopian are the most hard working ppl in the world. look at all ethiopian across the world even in the contries that there is no freedom. WE ARE THE BEST.

    I have the same doubts as all here when it comes to china too but I think one important aspect is being neglected. Imagine U´re assaulted by a strong guy and he pummels u beyond recognition where U can´t even stand on ur own 2 feet. After that comes another one and gives u a few punches as well. As I see it, U should judge the first one harsher than the second because if u had some of ur strength left maybe u would have strength to resist the second beater. The first criminal as far as Ethiopia is concerned is the west. They supported meles in everyway so that the ethiopian people couldn´t remove him and now he´s cozying up to china, the second abuser. Who is to be blamed here?

  23. Investors are more interested in profit or in making more money at any cost, even at the expense of peoples’ lives, countries distractions etc. This does not change if the investor is an Ethiopian, Chinese or Westerner.

    You have to remember that “some business people” were mixing clay with paper powder, poisonous substance with edible oil. Iraqis were plundered over 8 billion dollars under US army leadership, Bernard Madoff scammed the US ordinary people, retired seniors and others billions of dollar, Chelsea Clinton’s father in law tried to scam peoples money, the list is endless. For development we need investment but with it we are not receiving saints. We just choose the less evil and I think China can give us better now until it ensures its dominance.

  24. zewzew on

    I like everyone’s discussion above. The reality is that people, when we have actions what ever that is, we must make sure we know what we are doing. West or Asia, etc, we must know everyone is for their own self interest here. Who are we kidding? There are no friends here but benefit partners that is all. The protest is a plus and minus. It is a plus because we are trying to make the U.S and the West to pay attention to us. Beleive me they will when we are opposing other nations such as China. So I support that in that sense. On the other hand, there is a climate change that is coming luring over Ethiopia as Ethiopia is located around the Equator the sun eclipse will devestate the country so we need development, water resource asap. The funny thing is that Weyane spent the almost 20 years devestating the country and affecting Ethiopia’s natural resources. We could have protected our forests, grow more trees, have more dams, irrigation etc, to prepare for the upcoming “the end of the world” that is going to be especially for poor nations and Ethiopia is one of them. I hope the dam of Nile will happen soon to provide water although I have my doubts Weyane saw $$$ on this Nile buidling that is why and definitely not to develop entire Ethiopia, except Tigray region. Funny based on the documentary I say I mention on my other comment I posted yesterday, about Nile, Egypt and Ethiopia, the film showed Tigray region only as Ethiopia, and I saw something that striked me. Every city in Tigray the film showed the flag of the Weyane, yellow and red with a star but not Ethiopian flag. It is worrisome how Tigrayans can feel sovereignty different from the rest of Ethiopians and the sense of nationalism as Tigray rather than Ethiopia. Could this be heading to another secession of Tigray? Remains to be see.

    God bless Ethiopia

    Dear Brothers and sisters! When we maintain our morality and integrity at the required level where all Ethiopians and their God confront all their enemies then all impossibilities and challenges will vanish! We don’t have to try to launch a missile from a canoe! We have to analyze our possibilities and continue to capitalize on our previous experiences for our final mobilization to give unforgettable lessons to our historical enemies!If we are organized and unified I do believe that most innocent Ethiopians have a mountain-melting power!

    tezibt #4,

    Your comment tells the whole truth about the Ethiopian work ethics: eat, drink, sleep, have sex, produce children, and fill the country with kids not properly raised, not properly educated, and are not ready for any job that requires skills and professionalism. Who is to blame? The Ethiopian people who continue to support Meles Zenawi and who refuse to shed their blood to topple him down are to blame; no one will bring Meles down for the Ethiopian people. The people themselves must do it if they want change in their lives and in the lives of their children. I have never heard any serious famine in China with 1.3 billion people, but in Ethiopia with only 80 million people, there is always hunger, disease, and at a greater rate of infant mortality. We have been with the Americans; we have been with the British, and we have been with the Arabs, but what skill did we have learn from all of them? We may learn something new from the Chinese or from the Russians if we give them a chance for few years, and if there is no progress, we have the right to kick them out of our country.

    ASSTA, I AGREE WITH YOU NOW BUT NOT AFTER HAILESELASSIE. MENGISTU STARTING THE NUMBING OF ETHIOPIANS WHEN HE KILLED INDISCRIMINATTLY. UNDER WEYANE THE NUMBNESS TOOK DEEPER ADDED WITH CONFUSION, RESENTMENT AND FEAR. SO A TOTAL OF 30 YEARS NUMBNESS. IT IS TIME WE WAKE UP. WE HAVE TO MAKE SACRIFICES, NOTHING POSITIVE CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED WITHOUT GOING THROUGH THE HURDLE. AS BUDDHIST SAY, TO BE ENLIGHTENED, YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH SUFFERING. WHEN I SAY THIS IT SHOULD BE WITH STRATEGY, SKILL AND WISDOM OF SACRIFICE NOT JUST BLINDLY.

    ER,

    CAN YOU PLEASE POST OBANG’S POST ON AN EGYPTIAN LUNATIC GUY WHO IS ANTI ETHIOPIA? WE NEED DISCUSSION ON THAT, CONSTRUCTIVE DISCUSSION NOT INSULTING EACH OTHER.
