    There are some Activist who care more about donkey and fly than humans.
    They want African to live with out cloth as primitive than thousand years a go. and they want there tourists to enjoy seeing and taking picture of them.

    For me America or Australia is become what they are now by changing the way of life of the original people of the land.

    So even so i don’t suppor any an fair treatment of my brothers if it is done properly we need to use our resources and change our way of life if we want to be out of begging.

      But not by selling their land to somebody else and becoming slaves to Indians, Arabs,… the new colonizers.

      Woyane will not cooperate because it knows its evilness, barbarism, subhumanism. you wanted to civilize them by taking away their land and putting the into refugee campus in their own country and selling away their land to foreign multinational coorporations? Indian scholars condemned woyane of giving away the land of the poor to unethical Indian companies. An Indian Professor stated that the Indian companies in Ethiopia did not qualify to get land even in their own country in India? a

      Woyane has to removed before it does more damage? You wanted to civilize them? Are you civilized yourself? If you are civilized you would not do what you are doing? The people must not lose their land for your non-existing civilizations. That is what exactly said the colonizers when they colonized the world. The drive of colonialism was not as cynical as Woyanes, the Europeans strongly believed their culture, language is better and they went to out to reach others to help them to civilize. They were actually driven by Christian philosophy. They just misunderstood it. you are the same black and primitive colonizer. you wanted to civilize them by taking away their land, water, pastures, and turning them to slaves of Arabs? These people never had famine, drought, … as north Ethiopia. They were feeding themselves. Now you evils are interfering in their macro and micro ecosystem and practically destroying them forever by taking away their land and selling it for one dollar per hectare per year for 100 years and the people reduced to be slaves of the 21 century.

      Civilization is not only wearing clothes man. you may think you are smarter than them. you are not; you are just selfish driven by material.

      Even if we assume you have good intention, how is you can develop people by reducing them to be sweatshop or large scale commercial colonial farms?

      My motto is remove Woyane and all will be okay for the people.

    Shall we say TPLF or Ethiopia refuse to cooperate with World Bank??? We Ethiopians are more than happy to investigate and bring every TPLF corrupted officials in to justice!!!!!!!!!!

    Please those of you who come and Bark like a dog, those of you who want to DEFEND TPLF more than the TPLF defended them selves please shut it ! Let the woyanes speak for themselves.

    • ET says:

      Talk about barking,every one that come here knows that most TPLF officials are corrupted, however am sure posting five line on awrambatimes won’t bring those corrupted officials to justice. Mr Action if you think you have the gut why don’t you go where TPLF is, show your evidence and take them to court. I think you are the one who needs to shut it!!!

  3. Burning says:

    To stop the world bank funding, there should be continues protest by setting fire to burn properties, kill police officers, make the city like that of Sweden Protesters have done.

    If not, carrying placard, slogan can’t stop funding to Weyanne.

  4. Gezaee says:

    The easy struggle for this is to burn the farms before harvest 100% without killing anyone or human. Then they will run away. There is no other easy way. World Bank works for money; World bank does not care about anyone but business. By the way, WB has been asked to respect human rights and to remove one of its articles that allow them to give for anyone as long it does give them money back. They refused to accept it. WB bank works the same way or by the same it was working during colonialism. The only way to drive foreigner companies like Katuri and Arab is to burn their farm. Trust me, they will run away after that. It can be done without killing any human life. There is away to solve a problem without killing people.

    Never expect Woyane will hear or listen. Woyane is led by deaf people.

    In English:
    President Mubarak pursued a policy of carrot and stick with the Nile Basin countries, especially Ethiopia.
    On the one hand was offering them for Economic Cooperation and import their products heavily “meat Ethiopian example,” At the same time the implementation of the Egyptian companies to irrigation projects in this country allows them to take advantage of rain water those who do not know the rainwater that falls on the Nile Basin countries, equivalent to twenty times the Nile water almost underutilized due to lack of finance irrigation projects -.
    At the same time associated with Egypt relations secret document with opposition movements and rebels in the countries of the Nile sources such as the Lord’s Resistance Army of Uganda and the separatist movement in Eritrea, which has succeeded in separating Eritrea from Ethiopia and it came to Egypt established the Young Mujahideen Movement in Somalia, whic hwas declared jihad against Ethiopia whenever you try to Ethiopia tampering in the waters of the Nile.
    This policy of President Mubarak succeeded in maintaining the balance of relations for years with the threat of a violent reaction in the event of compromising Egypt share.
    The fact that these people are not hostile to Egypt, but their governments take these steps driven by the Zionists to put pressure on Egypt.

  8. Gezaeee says:

    What is the new here; we know that. Even woyane helped Egypt to separate our people and to landlock Ethiopia. We know this. Our enemy is Woyane now, not Egypt has succeeded partly in dismantling Ethiopia, landlocking Ethiopia. Woyane and Shabia were the messenger boys. That is Woyane removed Ethiopia from the strategic redsea and destroyed our navy and handed all the ports.

    Down to Woyane Banda, internal Mussolonis, we do not need to look into Egypt, we look the enemy at home which is holding our country hostage and its people. Now our ports are now controlled by Iran, Qatar, Egypt is farming land in afar, Gambela, apparently Ethiopia sold away by internal Mussolonis. I am not killing anyone by bullets. But I am shooting the bandas, internal Mussolonis by words. If there is crime committed on Ethiopians, it is the crime committed by woyane and Shabia. Our people to be free, the Egytian stooges Woyane, and Shabia must removed by the Ethiopians. Woyane is the worst enemy that is holding our people hostage. Down to Woyane and Shabia colonial and Arab stooges, Kehadiwoch.

  9. teshome says:

    We are sick and tired of your old wives tale. In every line of your comment you mentioned, woyane did this and did that.
    Don’t ask what Woyane did for Ethiopians, rather ask what you did for your country.
    You must be a certified paranoia to relate every thing what happened on earth to shabia and woyane conspiracy.
    You have no bile to fight woyane, but rather assuming the act of የጭለማ ግልምጭ…under hiding yourself by the side of your lazy computer.
    There is an old Amharic proverb
    ለበሬ በሽታ ዶሮ አይታረድም…we don’t have an ounce of energy to spend for the incoherent thoughts and reasons you provide. We are rather enjoying the height ignorance you been through.
    We supporters of woyane, unlike you and your fellow oppositions, we had not have a purpose to kill people but rather have a and motto to die for

    • Gezaee says:

      Dear Teshome,

      You are not able to defend yourself man. Let the audience judge me and you. You are not able to defend anything. That is why u have time only to insult people, and to tell us who we are? It is not my fault you could not defend yourself. It is your own fault. I can not help if you can help yourself. I cannot do anything for my country because of the controlled by very narrow and primitive people like who think they are more Ethiopian than other Ethiopians. This is a big problem in Ethiopia. As you can see yourself, you do not want to hear people telling you the truth? Whether you believe or not, you have exposed your ignorance. I have to leave my country because of your evil policies. I did not leave my country for luxury. you denied my right as Ethiopian to work in profession and career. We have begged you again and again, but you never listen, never. The answer will come sooner or later. Ethiopians are all tired of Woyane arrogance and ignorance. We are tired of Woyanes stone age policies, suppression oppression, internal colonization. Trust me, I am the diasporas are not isolated ones, they are indicators of discontents at home. At home people oppressed, suppressed, repressed. You may not know what will bring. The result will not be good. You must know the 2005 uprising is there. You just suppressing it by force. It will boil over and burn you one day. We will see you hiding like Gadaffi. Trust me, injustice will not let you go free.

      Woyane = Shabia = the same. You destroyed many lives in the name of independence and freedom. You are even talking about fighting? Why should I fight man? We are born to live, not to kill each other. That is woyane =shabia philosophy. We live in the civilized world problems are solved by means civilized methods. No need to fight wars or kill people. The reasons you are killing people is because you are used to kill and now it is your culture. You may not agree with me, but it is part of you now. It is culture. What did Shabia bring to the people except more suffering? what did woyane bring? except renewed apartheid system. We were under old apartheid and now we are under new apartheid. People do not know but Ethiopia is apartheid country.

      Teshome, you are stoned headed one. you will not understand what I am saying. As I said you are devoid of reasons and thinking. You brain is garbage. I can not clean it now. It is dirt already beyond repair. you must know the 2005 is still there and it is simmering and it will blow out one day. We are tired of ignorance and arrogance.
      You are waiting until the people take loss your patience.

  10. Vanity says:


    Tourists are not perverts. If that was the case then western tourists would not have to go all the way to Africa just to see and take picture of nudist people. They can click on their computers or if they want live view they can go to nudist activists rally or even to a strip club. They go to Africa to experience different culture,history, architecture , food , tradition , art and so on. You need to stop your prejudice against western tourists by snaping out of this perverted head of yours that think everybody is about pervertion.

    Dawit :What is this?Leave trash to the trash.This ain’t a news.Tell us some about the diversion of the course of the blue nile(abay).

  13. Tagash says:

    Just to make those of you, who jump on the band wagon of vilifying everything that is Ethiopian, aware, please read the article carefully, of course unless you are one of the die-hard toxic diaspora…in the article there clearly is a distinction between “The Inspection Panel of the World Bank, an independent complaints…” entity and the world bank itself. And the article goes on to state “We are not going to cooperate with the Inspection Panel,” Getachew Reda, a spokesman for Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, said in a phone interview on May 22. “To an extent that there’s a need for cooperation, it’s not going to be with the Inspection Panel, but with the World Bank”

    Where do you guys read that said “Ethiopia Refuses to Cooperate With World Bank Funding Probe.”

    Whatever you toxic diaspora wish and hope the years under EPRDF are ticking, before you know it will be 42 years, count on these words, if you guys are still alive, that is!

    • tn. says:

      this is interesting!! but all things are possible for TPLF, including asking one to dig a hole but prevent one from measuring its depth. low-behold, it might even get away with this one as well.
      by the way, the “land grab policy” is openly supported by an amara head of Ernest and Young (a big 5 consulting firm). ESAT will not bother with policy as long as the policy its headed by an Amara escape from diaspora.

  14. teshome says:

    I wholeheartedly apologize for the words I have been using to describe you.
    I was so emotional but that wouldn’t all be a good reason. Please accept my apology.
    To come to the point….
    You said “You were exiled cos you can’t live with EPRDF policies.”
    I can’t stop laughing and this must be God finest joke ever heard. Being an Ethiopian is always a problem, we are not trustful even to ourselves.
    By the way, I have one serious question for you which policies of Derge made you stay home and enjoy your life? Don’t tell me you were young by then, cos the way you wrote things tells me more than the gray hair under your panties…
    You are a simple politician who prefer to hiding under the political events happened in 2005, mind you we are living in 2013. A year or two years ago you were salivating the Arab style uprising in Ethiopia, but unfortunately enough that ended up with candle vigil ceremony in DC in front of White house.
    By the way ይሄ white house ፊት ለፊት የምታበሩ የገብርእል ሻማ ለምን ቀረ…
    Gezaee….Do you think you Ethiopian people have apolitical appetite to degree of your claim?…If your answer is yes , we are gonna see the peoples turn out of Sunday’s anti government protest by Semayawi party.

    …It is a disproportionate offense to equate the Tigrians people to White people of south African in the era of apartheid. It so amazing and at same time disheartening to see people in your caliber to consider Tigrians as an essential threats to Ethiopia. You took a stab on heart and we keep on feeling the pain for ever.
    You and Abraha belay of Ethiomedia are two sides of he same coin, Abraha metamorphosed over night to Amhara for the interest of oppositions elite and you are doing the same for not a different purpose. How dare your hear allows you to work against the interest of the brave Tigrian people. To oppose TPLF is one thing, to go heave and earth to make it bleeds the innocent Tigrian people is different.
    But the people had said it clear and loud..” kalsina merire eyu, awetana nagedine eye”

  15. Gezaee says:

    Dear Teshome, As I said earlier, you are primitive to be honest; You do not qualify to have a civilized discussion. It is not your fault man. I can not change you or no body can change. It can take ages to educate you. You love talking to yourself than talking to people. you attitude is Gadaffi like. You sounded Gadaffi’s son.

    You do not represent Tigreans. Why is Teshome = Tigrean? who are to represent 7 milion people? are you elected? Woyane leaders internal mussolonis, this has nothing to do with the 7 million people of Tigrai. Evil people like use their ethnic to implement thier evil agenda. They use their ethnic as a shield for their crime. Who represents Tigreans? Woyane leaders or TPLM leaders? TPLM has 50 000 Tigreans soldiers? can we say they represent Tigreans? no, no elected them. Equally, you do not represent anyone. You smell like Gadaffi. Teshome, talk your buddies please. Do not bother me. As I said, people like you can not be changed or educated.
