    Meron Tesfamariam Added 0 seconds ago What can I say really? I am not amazed. I share the feelings of this man. Guys, listen to yourself, to your innerself, what are you feeling because of what is going on in Ethiopia, I mean the politics, the Hailemariam’s regime? I hate myself, I feel as if I am loosing my country, Like being a man without country. This feeling makes so desperate. Imagine, if someone really annoys you, as this time of hopelessness, you may not be sure what will you be doing?

    What I would like to say to all of you is, are you ready to take action, then make your action meaningful for a better cause. Now our country needs people who can save her from destruction by dying first, why don’t we go back to our country and die defending our people and our country against the colonizers: Hailemariam Desalegn and the co. rather than rotting for life in USA’s gay rapists/HIV infested prisons. I don’t think any human being should see the inside of prisons like I did last year. prison in USA is the most ugliest place anyone can possibly be. Surprisingly there are huge number of Ethiopians and Eritreans serving life sentence and decades in prisons in Virginia/DC area and in California especially.
    No one even visiting them. No form of contact with friends or families no letters no phone calls nothing.
