Oh yeah?
Ethiopia needs food first. You can not be begging for food at the same time while you are begging for funds to build several dams, hydro or not. It don’t make no sense.

I told you folk. They, the so called enviromentalist (afagots,les65bian org) charities and Ngo, all wants us to live in dark and begger life. They want ethiopia to be as a starving nation on earth. They want us to live as a begger nation.
They do not want to see any develpment in ehiopia at all.
They are ther to make sure we stay on beggerisem so that they can collect their annual incomes from their western govt.
Throw out these parasites og. Out of ethiopi soil for good.
Ethiopia will be better without them,
It is also a work of shabia agents and some crack-heads opposition who went all the way to china to protest .
These are not ethiopia but a shermuuta lijoooche. Who sleep with shabia of the north. They are now trying to get support from egyptian govt. to stop tha abay dam too. Any development in ethiopia is a cancer to shabians and wester charities, ngo and now these enviromentalist.

So in your mind, we should remain beggars forever? What a bonehead! I doubt if you are Ethiopian, though.

Dear Teshager,

I don’t think you get it!!! Are you saying only because Ethiopia needs food, we can not build dams? Actually, if we build more dams, more hydroelectric power will be available for bigger domestic factories and we will be less dependent on food aid..we will also be exporting more hydro electric power which means more cash to expand our farming sector.
Go for it.
God bless the United States of Ethiopia!!!

Since time immemorial, people have been building dams to store and manage water resources. There are more than 75,000 dams in the United States alone. In many cases building dams has many advantages than disadvantages. Ethiopia has all the rights to utilize its own resources responsibly, properly and effectively to the best advantages of its people. No one has the slightest moral or ethical authority to question the wisdom of building a dam, let alone to try to block or deny funds, knowing that the construction of the dam will definetely help to reduce the impact of the recurrent drought and flood our country suffers from. For the 80 million Ethiopians the construction of the dam has a novel cause. We are not building a nuclear reactor; for Gods sake, we are constructing a dam to produce energy and to manage the water resource so that we will be able to support the ever-growing survival needs for millions of Ethiopians.
To be fair and reasonable, the proper and meaningful roll for environmentalists, in this case, should have been to solicit and advocate for ways to ensure that their basic concerns regarding any negative impacts as a result of the dam be minimized or eliminated by the initial planning and incorporation of the appropriate mitigation measures into the design, construction and operation of the project to make the dam environmentally responsible and socially acceptable both for upstream and downstream inhabitants, and the surrounding natural ecosystem.

It is clear why it doesn’t make sense to you. It is because you seem to have a strong hatred to Ethiopia and Ethiopians. Back-off hater!!

When Ethiopia is tryng to rid itself from dependency on the so-called developed world by,among other things, constructing a hydroelectric power(not nuclear power), a concerted noise is being echoed to stop a project that Ethiopia believes is best for her people. The reasons behind this rally is obviously the envy that it is being financed by China. Ethiopia has chosen not to live in darkness and underdeveloped for ever. The harm that the construction of the dam would incur as portrayed by these “activists” is based on other motivations than what is claimed.

Ethiopia shall prosper!!
