Dr. Yacob Hailemariam, one of Kinijit's top leaders, says this to the European Parliament:
We hold no grudges against our jailors or any body for that matter. Our only wish as always has been, together with our compatriots at the ruling party EPRDF to devote our energy to the betterment of our country and people and rededicate ourselves to the cause of democracy , respect for human rights and peace in our country and even beyond. Our journey may be long and our task hard. But to paraphrase Martin Luther King Jr. again we are confident that the long arch of history will eventually bend towards justice in Ethiopia.
That is the spirit!
