Political prisoners protest limitation on visitation right

The CUD leaders, social justice advocates and independent journalists who have been in jail for the last ten months have refused to see their spouses and children in protest of the government's retriction of their visitation rights. Since last week friends of the prisoners and family members(excepting spouses and children) have been barred from visiting the prisoners. This new limitation was imposed after the new year message of the political prisoners was published in internet journals and republished in a local newspaper. The prisoners have decided to cut all their contacts with the outside world by refusing to see their spouses and children until the TPLF government which illegally arrested them accepts their demand.

Meles and the tyrants thought that blocking the blogs would bring stability in their already shaken party and then now they think restricting vistors of Prisoners of conscience would bring the downfall of Kinijit Spirit!

Well one thing they should know is that its too late to do that as her exellency VP Birtukan Mideksa said once, "Kinijit is a spirit. It is a spirit of freedom - a spirit of love and unity" and it is immpossible to kill or restrain someones' spirit of love and freedom as it has been witnessed in the past too...

So I personally request the tyrants to realease these PRISONERS of CONSCIENCE immediately without further consideration.... the people of Ethiopia have already said Enough is Enough....
