A little triumph in congress

It has been a while since the Ethiopian movement for democracy heard a great news. Today's decision by the House International Committee to unanimously endorse the Ethiopia Freedom, Democracy and Human Rights Advancement Act of 2006 (HR 5680) is, however, a truly great news. Ethiopians in USA should now work hard, lobbying your representatives to vote for it when it goes to the full house. This is a defeat to a once respected philosophy instructor at Addis Ababa University(now a discredited TPLF servant), one Samuel Assefa. Hail to the diaspora.
I am confident that there will be more good news from home. Watch this space.

i am very suspicious of this new bill........who here has read it?
"(HR 5680)" this is not the old one, and the fact that the democrats and repablicans indorsed it quicklly suggests that there have been some big compromises on the part of Congressman smith....Untill we read this new bill......we should not be too excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
