Ethiopians stage protest at China embassy in DC – Live report


12:02 PM – The protest rally by Ethiopians at the Chinese embassy in Washington DC has now moved to the Woyanne-occupied Ethiopian embassy. By totally decimating the peaceful opposition parties in Ethiopia — with financial backing from the World Bank and technical assistance from China — Meles and gang may have thought that they have demoralized and killed the fighting spirit of  Ethiopians. From the large demonstration we have seen today, Ethiopians are regrouping and ready to fight stronger and more aggressively than ever with new strategies, tools, and leadership.

11:20 AM – The protest rally at the Chinese embassy is now winding down. The protesters are preparing to march to the Woyanne occupied Ethiopian embassy that is nearby.

    Why is it only China! There are other countries that give millions of dollars every year to Meles Zenawi. What about the US giving millions of dollars to Zenawi? don’t you guys be naive or be guided by emotions.

    A Great job fellow Ethiopians! it is about time we expose all evil supporters of the mafia TPLF regime. Legesse Zenaw uses the “China card” to show the West that he has another aid donor (in his pocket) if they push him “too far” !.

    For any dictator/him, a sudden demand by the people (West-initiated or not), for power sharing with all the real oppositions inside or outside the country or the idea of leaving the country/retirement in exchange for his or for the safety of his familys, so that a real democracy can finally be institionalized in Ethiopia, is a nightmare which drives (anyone) him up the wall/crazy.

    That is why Mr. Zenawi is working 24/7 to stay in power at all cost. The meathods…., ranging from burning of villages in the country side to stationing of Agazi sharp shooters in the steets of Addis Abeba and to seeking support from China to jam radios and satillite tv stations.
    Most recently, one notices the sending of cadres overseas to either silenace the oppositions or to create division among “ethnic fronts” so that they don’t join the fight for united ETHIOPIA.

    Some of the solutions are for All the oppositions (internal or external) to unite and force the tyrant to respect the rule of law, if not to design a set of strategy for the country (inside or from outside) and to create an environment which is no longer conducive for one man rule, by demanding freedom for Bertukan, free election, free press, freedom of association, etc…..the basic universal freedom & human rights we Ethiopians are deprived of in the 21 century.

    God Bless Ethiopia and her children.

    Viva Ethiopians, this the time to be united, This is a struggle for freedom. Woyane is not Ethiopian.

    bravo ethiopians in washington dc. we are very proud of you. God bless you!

    death to all weyane members, racist blind supporters and hodam supporters!

    good job Ethiopians brother and sisters!!!!
    Mr. Elyas do u think posting protesters picture on internet is a good idea? i don’t!! the kind of picture that Abebe sent to you is good enough!!

  6. desta on

    It is nice to see various Ethiopians groups and media coming together to organize such a powerful event. Please maintain and nurture this unity. Woyanne is peeing on Ethiopia. Please my people be united.

    Ethiopians are in the right truck to challenge Woyane!
    This time, I strongly believe, we are going in a good direction to dismantle dictators in Africa in general and in Ethiopia in particular. China is known to support the existence of dictators, giving them to abuse basic human rights that shouldn’t exist in the 21 th century. Chinese need to understand we are nocking their door unless they stop supporting primitive dictators in the world.

    Ethiopians in diaspora are showing wonderful strategies to put pressure on woyane including the recently developed ESAT TV program which I believe has given a big challenge to woyane.
    In the mean time, I acknowledge vibrant and smart Ethiopian Diasporas who created new angles of struggle against woyane. I strongly believe that they will create additional approaches or ways of struggle against woyane.
    Last but not least, I would appreciate all Ethiopians who showed your hands in todays demonstration in China embassy in Washington DC. It is really so lovely and encouraging. It has witnessed that Ethiopians will follow leaders if they see bright strategies that can bring change in Ethiopia.

    Good Bless Ethiopia and its people!

    jeru this is what weyane wants you to think. When you are in the USA on the American soil,why do you feel threatened? This is the kind of unity we need now.Weyane is not in the driver sit otherwise they wouldn’t be here begging to have more LOLE. GO Ethiopians GO.

    Way to go DC Ethio demonstrators!

    Those who tirelessly worked to organize such a demonstration have not only to be appreciated but also supported in terms of sustaining the momentum now being gathered as a result of this successful event.

    The fact that the Chinese embassy was targeted is also a timely act; however, the actual god fathers of this racist tplf clique rest elsewhere in certain Western power centers; and as such, those elements that have been supporting the tplf mercenary state for decades have to be exposed and challenged accordingly.

    Activists in other major capitals of the West are expected to organize such demonstration to keep the spark of the moment going and spreading.

    All anti-tplf orgs should join forces to remove the cancer of our region once and for all!!

    Truth shall prevail!!

    This is the only thing the diaspora’s can do.The government of Ethiopia take’s money from world bank and Western donors in the name of poor Ethiopian people but give to china to undermine freedom of speach and other democratic right. China is beniefitng alot, They are spreading their anti domocratic ideology to other countries and as the same time they are making business. I think todays demonestration might be a good signal to US government because Chine was jamming VOA too which have 80 millions listener across the country.

    I can’t express my pride in what my Ethiopian brothers and sisters are doing to bring attention to the plight of Ethiopian in the hand of Woyane….
    Much love.

    I am immensely proud of my fellow Ethiopians in the USA for stagging this mammoth patriotic demonstration.

  13. Kiros on

    THIS IS MADNESS TO SAY THAT SUPPORTING NILE IS SUPPORTING EPRDF. IN FACT, I AM DISAPPOINTED WITH THE LACK OF SUPPORT FOR THE NILE RALLY. THIS SHOWS THAT THE MELES-ism AND DOMINATION BY THE TPLF IS HURTING NATIONAL AGENDA. THE LACK OF SUPPORT FOR THE NILE ISSUE IS A SHAME TO EPRDF AS IT SHOWS EPRDF’S POLITICAL AND REPRESSIVE METHODS ARE HARMING ETHIOPIA’S NATIONAL INTERESTS. I AM SAD TO SEE THAT PEOPLE COULD NOT DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN ETHIOPIA’S INTERETS AND THE MISRULE BY MELES-EPRDF. MELES AND EPRDF ARE FAILURES EVERYWHERE THEY GO AND WHATEVER THEY TOUCH.

  14. zewzew on

    Even though it is good, about time ethiopians go out rally, and on China, this should continue around World Bank, IMF, Ethiopian Embassy, State Department, etc… it is not just China.

  15. zewzew on

    Er,

    I agree with Jeru, posting detail information and posting the pictures of protesters will make them a target. So, the idea of posting just general photos form far will be a good idea.

    The West will always favor the equality of every individual as WE KNOW IT. Let us understand THAT equality first comes within before we judge others.

    I am very proud of You Guys!!!
    But,How on earth even 10 men were able to protest peacfully over the streets of DC supporting the recist regime? I was really surprised and disappointed after I listened an interview of one brainless woyanne supporter(that was calling him self doctor)on VOA…How you guys in US live together with the type of this Bullshit?
    ….ayi Emiye Ethiopia!!!..Sintun adirbay welideshal?? enesi lanchiw azenikulish!!!

  18. zewzew on

    I support the protesters and more power. When they protest they should include the following slogan to embarass Weyane: “Meles is anti Ethiopian! Meles sold our land to Sudan, Egypt and to East! We should emphasise his anti Ethiopianism>” The bottom line is, we Ethiopians are at fault, we go along with him as he tries to cheat us. Also, how do we protect oursleves when he will be leaving us termoil, do we also think about that or it is just how to topple Weyane?

    China need to be very careful in working with a hated and genocidal dictor in ethiopia. We need the relationship to be between Ethiopia and china. Not with the criminal woyane.

In the 2010 election the cofin hammerd by big nails & sent to the grave. Our silence should be break & we have to avoied our differece for the seck of our contry & the next generation.

    WE KICKED ITALIAN OUT OF OUR COUNTRY BY UNITING AND FORMING UNDEFEATABLE FORCE, WE SHOULD DO THE SAME TO SEND CHINEASE BACK TO THEIR HOMELAD WITH SHAME AND DEFEAT

  26. Degenet on

    Dear Protesters,
    Wake up! We all know that Ethiopians do not like to work and are lazy. Any one who is powerful enough to challenge his/her own weakness and gets to work to change things for the better is a target for some losers who come out to bark in the name of doing politics for the Ethiopian “people”.
    Meles has done much for Ethiopia, with or without help from inside or outside the country.
    We know all about the EPRP’s style of leading. (Do not think that that is forgotten, and this group is one to run away from as they mean only instability). EPRP does not have any better working solution to the countries problems, anyway. They are only upset because they are not at the driver’s seat and could not do more damage. Meles is stopping them effectively.Than God for that.
    So, go ahead and demonstrate and rally, but to know avail. Instead go within hearts and ask yourselves what you really want to do with your time and energy. Do not be so bitter and hateful!
    You are helping neither yourselves nor Ethiopia.
    May Good Will and Peace BE YUORS,
    Degenet

  27. Most Ethiopians are ignorant and pacifistic, only a rare few know what the terms propaganda and manipulation even mean, let alone what the agenda and beliefs of Marxism are.

    Ever since before the Derg, Ethiopia and much of Africa was being taken over by stealth Marxists, who now have control of much of the whole world including Africa. The Islamics did their Jihad for 1000+ years taking over whatever they wanted, now in our time the Marxists are doing similar things and gaining even more power then the Muslims.

    Until Ethiopians educate themselves as to what Marxism is, and what Islam is, they will forever be an enslaved bunch of ignorant sheep following what their lineage cult of pagan orthodox ‘holy men’ tell them to do, rather then obeying the Biblical Christ who reveals Himself through his onl revelation, the Bible.

    Africa will be ruled entirely by Marxists and Muslims in the very near future unless there is a cival war to change constitutions and also get rid of all Marxist or Islamic based laws and viewpoints from taking over the rare few even minor Christian cultures still left in the entire world.

    If you don’t protect the last glimmers of Christian civilization from the Muslim and Marxist propaganda and manipulations from the media and courts, there will not be any more Christian civilizations ever again until Jesus returns.
