Gebru Asrat, one of former top TPLF leadership and president of Tigray regional state, warns the people of Tigray that Secession is risky

He seems to say so not on grounds of its possible repercussions ( economic and other) but on grounds role to Tigreans in the formation of the Tigrean identity. He sees Ethiopia as an integral part of Tigrean identity-which is an ethnic identity if it stands on its own.

  1. Mr. Gebru Astat explained the situation in our home land in a perfect way.

    Ethiopia is the host Country of African Union and we have to be ready to lead Pan Africanism which is burning in the heart of Africans for its foundation.

    Today very huge Companies in rich western Countries can not survive by themselves they Merge with 4 to 5 other Companies to be profitable.

    America has 50 big states each of them like Ethiopia.

    Cessation is illegal in their Constitution.

    Why then we break down while all the Other nations new that to be together is power.

    Let us thank Mr. Gebru Astat for his excellent Political Advice on situation in Our Country.
