Dr. Gregory Stanton, President of Genocide Watch, gave an impassioned speech about the atrocities of the Meles regime in Ethiopia during a public meeting in Washington DC that was held to commemorate the 5th anniversary of the Ethiopian Election Massacre. Dr. Stanton urged Ethiopians around the world to get organized and work to bring change in Ethiopia. He discussed the experiences of the Ukraine and Ghana communities abroad who helped brought change in their countries and that Ethiopians can do the same. He also sent an unequivocal message to Ethiopians of Tigrean ethnic group in whose name the Meles regime is brutalizing Ethiopians and committing genocides in some regions of the country, such as Ogaden and Gambella. Dr Stanton said he is worried that eventually it will be the Tigreans who will pay the price for Meles Zenawi’s crimes. Watch the speech below:

European Union Election Observation Mission (EU EOM) was the only observer team (besides the biased AU mission) observing Ethiopia’s fourth National Election held on 23 May 2010.
EU EOM, led by Mr. Thijs Berman, Member of the European Parliament, was in Ethiopia from 14 April to 21 June 2010 with the invitation of the Ethiopian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Electoral Board of Ethiopia (NEBE). EU EOM was made up of 170 observers from 25 European Union Member States, as well as, Norway, Switzerland and Canada.
The Mission’s preliminary report that noted the election fall short of international and regional commitments for elections as well as the laws of Ethiopia was strongly rebuked by the Ethiopian regime. After long delay, the mission has released the final report today. The Ethiopian regime denied visas to members of the observation mission who planned to be in Ethiopia, today, for the release of the report.
