Human Right Watch, Amnesty International, Reporters Without Borders, "Independent" Media Outlets (Reuters, CNN, BBC, etc)... Where are You? Below are listed some of the events that were less reported on their mass medias about Ethiopia.

When reading it, one question arises, and that is: Why are these allegedly "human-rights-organisations" (Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, Reporters Without Borders) and „independent” media outlets (Reuters, CNN, etc) quiet??? The answer is simple: the US-administration, as the biggest fund raiser, has a say about how to report (this is disclosed in several occasions).

Had it not been for the utmost care of the successive US-administrations, the Woyane-Ethiopian-regime, the darling-beggar of the West, would have not existed until now.

Dear reader, please read the news-articles below which are events of the recent months and judge it for yourself. We must not be the victim of the Western backed propaganda that we are facing currently. Most notably, try to ask always yourself first who is behind the news you are reading?


List of news-articles worth reading:

( ... a-in-june/

By Durame,

A record-breaking 4,634 Ethiopian refugees and asylum seekers have crossed into neighboringEritrea for the month of June, opposition sources in Asmara have disclosed.

Eritrea, which is currently housing tens of thousands of Ethiopian refugees, has declined to comment about the alarming number of Ethiopianyouth entering their borders. Severe government oppression and lack of economic opportunities are the leading causes of youth fleeing Ethiopia, according to refugees inside the country. On average, over 7,100 Ethiopian refugees have been fleeing towards Yemen each month, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Despite the growing figures of Ethiopian youth fleeing their homeland, little attention is given in the media due to Addis Ababa’s close relation with Washington.

Information obtained from the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs of Ethiopia indicates that over 400,000 people have left the Country illegally within the last two years alone. If the number of those that left the Country legally was to be added, the number could double.

The government had recently banned overseas travel for employment. Abebe Haile, , Director of the Employment Service Promotion Directorate at the Ministry said citizens are banned from going to Lebanon, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Yemen, Sudan and South Africa.

Although the journey to these countries has been dangerous and their fate once they arrive there has been harassment and suffering, citizens have not stopped streaming to those countries.

Unemployment and poverty are the main drivers of the mass emigration of citizens. Reports from the United Nations (UN) indicate that the number of people that are leaving the Country due to political reasons is also increasing.
