Protesters to take to streets in Mekelle Town with demand for new political system  

Mekelle Protest _ Ethiopia _ Sept 5

By Staff Reporter

ADDIS ABABA – (BORKENA) – Though the Mekelle Town Administration of Tigray Region did not permit it, the peaceful protest scheduled to be held for three consecutive days starting from 07 September 2033 will be held, sources said.

The media coordination section of the coalition of three parties that called the rally told Addis Maleda that whether the Town Administration allows it or not, the protest march will be held in Mekelle Town on the scheduled day.

Head of the Media Coordination Section of the coalition of Beunat, Salsai-Weyane and Baytona-Tigray Party, Ablelom Gebre-Michael said that they would not ask permission to voice their protest. “The basic purpose of the demonstration is to inform the international community of the past scars and the current problems of the genocide that the Ethiopian Government and other forces have perpetrated on the people of Tigray for the past two years.” Ablelom said.

Ablelom said that although the sounds of guns have not been heard across the region this time, people die every day from hunger and various causes. “Women have been raped, displaced persons do not receive humanitarian aid.” The three parties expressed their belief that there is no political system that meets the needs of the people of Tigray, Addis Maleda quoted them as saying.

Therefore, “one of the objectives of the rally is to voice our demand that there should come a new political system in Tigray that will support properly the basic needs of the people of the region.” The rally, which is to be held in Romanat Square in Mekelle Town from 07 September 2023 will have a slogan, “Commitment for Radical Change”.

The Media Coordination of the coalition of the three opposition parties requested the Town Administration in a letter for security protection of the rally. “However, the interim administration said that though having peaceful demonstration is allowed constitutionally, this rally will not be held and the administration would not be able to provide security protection,” the Media Coordination section quoted the interim administration as saying.

The Town Administration said that it did not allow the rally as offices would be busy with overlapping work expected on the eve of the coming Ethiopian New Year and Meskel Celebrations.

“The administration that failed to protect and stop the  horrible crimes that have been occurring in Mekelle Town has no moral capability to prevent us from holding the peaceful demonstration,” the media coordination section said.

“When we hold the peaceful demonstration, we do not think we will be attacked by our people or any other party but the system,” the official said, calling the decision of the Town’s administration as “absolutely unacceptable”.

    In the interview made at Fnote Media Network with Tigrayan actress , you could conclude that the current generation in Tigray is corrupted and the land is full of hooligans, killers, rapists, arrogants, and superstitious people. Many of these criminals are supporters of TPLF. Innocent Tigrayans are dying because of these criminals within the TPLF’s bloody idiot genocidal circle. Too many well-educated Tigrays hated to work in Tigray and moved to Amhara and the Oromiya region on account of village-based discrimination and the rigid, toptalitarian ideology of TPLF leaders. Many Tigrayans have perished after being brutally murdered by TPLF cadres, and many women have been sexually assaulted.
    Blind loyality, perilous collective or mass mentality can easily be traced from the comments and likes thy made on these commercial channels of TPLF.
    Report all those weyane supporters’ channels to Youtube, flag them as terrorists and hate speech promoters.

    Down down Weyane , terrorist, robbers and scumbags

  2. TPLF leaders are unlawfully detaining Tigrayans to maintain their grip on power. They must hand over power to the youngest generation. TPLF leaders are responsible for the massacre of innocent Tigrayans. Every day, Tigrayans are dying under their watch. They are allowing the robbery of humanitarian aid, and some of their members are believed to be part of this crime. Children die from starvation after enduring unspeakable suffering for so many days. The lives of Tigrayans, especially those of women of all ages, are at risk. Tigrayans, who have gained infamy as sexual predators, tragically cut short the life of Zewdu Haftu. It is not a secret that these criminals and habitual rapists are of Tigrayan origin. TPLF and its supporters have been placing all the blame on Fanno and Shabiya. For the past 2 years, the machine deployed to manufacture lies and deceive the world into believing all the rehetroic deceptions of TPLF leaders and their gang members has now been stuck due to the grusesome story of her disappearance in the broad day light in a city on which TPLF and law enforcement members gain the upper hand. Many hidden stories are yet to come, and TPLF gang members in DC have now been feeling under the weather due to these facts being made public as their lies and reality remain unmatched. There will not be any argument about Fannos and Shabiya being involved in various horrendous crimes in Tigray, but it should not be overlooked or even denied. There have been sexual assaults, robberies, and murders committed by Tigrayans themselves while Tigray is at war with ENDF, Shabiya, and Fanno. Down Down Weyane and its deadly ideology
    Down, Fnote Media Network, ZaraTigray, Zara Media Network, and TMH TV
    የጎፈንድሚ ቀበኞች ሙዳየ ምፅዋት ገልባጮች የትግራይ ቅርሶች ማን እንደሰረቀ ይጣራ(you will certainly find robbers of sacred artifacts among tplf cadres)They are stealing wheat and children are dying du to this henious crime. በዳያስፖራ በተለይም በዚሁ አሜሪካ የተሰነቀሩ የህውሃት ደንገጡሮች like stalin and hailemichale and alula የአሜካን ቀረጥ ዘራፊዎች(freeloaders) ዲፖርት ይደረጉ
    Down down TPLF, no more TPLfites ideology in Tigray
