Ethiopia’s Politics of Hate By Yonas Araya

It’s heartbreaking to hear that most Ethiopians’ hate speech directed against the Tigrayans comes mainly from Amhara activists. I feel sorry for the future of Amhara children, for they may burden themselves with guilt and shame for the crimes they did not commit.

All things end, and so does the totalitarian ruler’s reign of 50 years of terror. After more than fifty years of horror, Eritreans will soon watch with jubilation as they witness the coming down of the final curtain on the totalitarian ruler.

Who is the Rightful Owner of Western Tigray? By Yonas Araya

The Committee did not take into account any historical claims of any specific area by any ethnic group.
