U.S.–Africa Summit Highlights Challenges of Africa’s Rise

Sadiq A. Abdirahman

As part of President Obama’s comprehensive strategy for engagement in Africa, the first United States and Africa Summit was convened in Washington, DC. All but three of Africa’s heads of states were present. According to the Obama administration, the summit is intended to foster strong economic ties between the United States and African countries. It will show and explain the investment opportunities Africa holds for U.S businesses.


Ethiopian People´s Revolutionary Party (EPRP) Press Release

The US-Africa summit is vintage exercise in futility, a waste of the American taxpayer's money. For this summit, president Obama has invited the dregs and dictator of Africa to Washington DC, to wine and dine and, alas, to praise them by taking of a mirage of an economic growth, democratic progress and a bright future.  Fiction par excellence.

The Devaluation of the Birr: A Layman’s Guide, Part 2

Seid Hassan‐ Murray State University August 1, 2014. 

Hitherto, I have been reluctant to post a commentary regarding the World Bank’s suggested birr devaluation measure which is still being debated as we speak. I was reluctant partly because my highly received 2010 commentary addressed many of the issues that seem.......

WEINSHET MOLA is a young female political activist and a meber of the Semeyawi party (she is also a member of the National Council) and was recently subjected to a barbaric beating session (right arm broken, skull cracked, body heavily bruised, etc...) in the hands of the regime's police and security force. Weinshet in now held incommunicado. Only last Friday, the police provoked a clash with  Muslims praying in the Anwar Mosque of Addis Abeba and rushed into the Mosque in great numbers to beat up, maim and even kill innocent Muslims. In Northern Shoa, repression  against Amharas has claimed many lives. Bloggers have been charged with terrorism.

JULY 18/2014


The brutal police of the regime stormed the Anwar Mosque in Addis Abeba and violently beat up numerous Ethiopian Muslims and rounded up many others. The unjustified violence is part of the regime's continuing campaign to break up and stifle the peaceful protest of Ethiopian Muslims for their basic human and democratic rights. One report indicates that at least one person has been critically wounded from a gunshot. For very long now the repressive regime has been trying to break and halt the peaceful protest from aggrieved Muslims.

JULY  10/2014


Following the illegal extradition of opposition Ginbot 7 leader Andargatchew Tsige from Yemen, the repressive regime in Addis Abeba has gone on a spree of arrests in a clear drive to strike at dissidents. Preliminary reports indicate no less than 35 people have been arrested in Addis Abeba in an alleged ( and false) link to "terrorism". The regime has conveniently labeled several opposition organizations as "terrorist".

The Christian Do-Gooders Secretly Attacking Gays

Campus Crusade for Christ, one of America’s largest charity organizations, is famous for spreading the ‘Good News’ at colleges. But less is known about its anti-gay work overseas.

Like many a Daily Beast reader, I found Campus Crusade for Christ to be somewhere between annoying and amusing. You remember them from college: the Jesus freaks, intent on spreading the “Good News,” somewhere between quaint and creepy.

Ethiopia’s Police State: The Silencing of Opponents, Journalists and Students Detained

Global Research, June 11, 2014

Detention under spurious charges in Ethiopia is nothing new. With the second highest rate of imprisoned journalists in Africa[1] and arbitrary detention for anyone who openly objects to the Ethiopian Peoples’ Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) regime’s despotic iron fist, the Western backed government in Addis Ababa is a dab hand at silencing its critics.

An American Passion for Tyrants

One standard definition of “international development” is that it is the global effort by rich and poor countries alike, working in tandem, to dramatically reduce extreme poverty and want. At the same time, such development should foster the economic growth of poor countries so that they will eventually be able to catch up with rich ones. Then they will share what Walt W. Rostow, the intellectual father of the so-called modernization theory that dominated the Western development world in the 1950s, called the promise of abundance.
