Press Release

Following this morning's announcement by the ruling party in Ethiopia, the Tigrai People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) claiming that it has foiled an attempted plot by Ginbot 7 to over throw its regime, our movement has been receiving inquiries and clarifications from a number of media outlets.

Ginbot 7 would like to make it clear that the repressive regime in Ethiopia is under massive pressure at home due to the collapse of the economy, the massive unemployment, the obscene corruption and the growing resistance from the severely restricted opposition political parties and the populace at large.

Every time the Meles regime is cornered for its gross mismanagement of the economy making Ethiopia, a virtual beggar nation, for its massive violations of human rights and its resounding condemnation by august international organizations for enacting draconian laws to criminalize dissent and use these bogus laws as a pretext to terrorize the innocent people of Ethiopia it has a long standing habit of looking for scapegoats and creating endless distractions.

This latest claim of foiling a coup plot by Ginbot 7 is no different than the regime's same old worn out practices of criminalizing political dissent. Ginbot 7 has no desire to engage in a tit for tat with the dictators in Addis Ababa, nor the time to waste replying to baseless accusations by a regime that rules Ethiopia by the barrel of the gun.

Ginbot 7 remains committed to work for the establishment of democracy, respect for human rights and the rule of law in Ethiopia. No amount of scurrilous accusations, threats or blackmail by the regime will deter us from pursuing the cause of democracy
and freedom.

Ginbot 7 affirms its commitment to the proud and courageous people of Ethiopia who only yearn to live in peace, freedom and prosperity.

Ginbot 7 Movement for Justice, Freedom and Democracy

The transmission is a mess; the muffler's clunking; smoke's seeping out of the dashboard; and you've only had it a week. You took it, grudgingly, as a replacement for that beat-up old Camry that only lasted two months, but the salesman assured you it was a winner. No wonder you're driving onto the lot right now. Before you can even complain, the same salesman's there. He's firm. It's not his fault. You must have done something. Nonetheless, he's ready to offer you a great deal. For an extra 2,000 bucks, you can have the rusted-out Honda Prelude right behind him, the one that, as a matter of fact, has just burst into flames -- and, he assures you, it's a dandy. It may not look so great today, what with the smoking hood and all, but it's a vehicle for the ages.
Would you buy a used car from this man? (Hint…

“We gather tonight knowing that this generation of
heroes has made the United States safer and more
respected round the world.” 

(President Barack Obama, State of the Union address,
24th January 2012.)

As Easter was
celebrated in the US and UK with, for believers, the
message of hope, Fallujah, the region and much of
the country is again under siege, not this time by
US mass murderers, but by the US proxy government’s
militias armed with US delivered weapons. In 2003, a
month into the invasion, Easter Day fell on the same
day as this year, 20th April, as Iraqis of all
denominations and none, died were incarcerated,
tortured, found with their heads drilled, or no
heads, thrown on garbage piles. Easter Day
