Senator James Inhofe’s Oklahoma office throws out his constituents, including a State Senator!!!

Oklahoma City, OK – During a recent peaceful protest in front of Senator Inhofe’s office, a group of peaceful Oklahoma constituents including State Senator Constance Johnson and Mr. Bill Fix, a former ardent supporter of Senator Inhofe were thrown out of the Senator’s office consistent with Senator Inhofe’s refusal to meet stakeholders of HR 2003, the “Ethiopia Democracy and Accountability Act of 2007” during his recent official trip to Ethiopia. Despite near freezing temperature, many supporters of HR 2003 braved the weather and made their voices heard. Over 500 signed signatures from Oklahoma constituents were turned in to Senator Inhofe’s district office. Several media outlets, including, NPR national radio network, KFOR TV and KOKH TV stations covered the rally.

Notable Oklahomans spoke at the peaceful protest rally in opposition to Senator James Inhofe’s continued opposition to the Ethiopia Human Rights bill. Ms. Semaynesh Ayalew representing Ethiopian-Americans in Oklahoma for H.R.2003 opened the rally by stating, "My fellow human rights defenders, we were in this place on November 13 and, again on Nov 20, 2007, to ask Senator Inhofe to lift his hold on H.R.2003 a human rights bill for Ethiopia that all of the Republicans and Democrats in the House of Representatives supported and endorsed and forwarded to the U.S. Senate."

Other speakers included, State Senator Constance Johnson, who in her heartwarming, passionate speech stated, "Senator Inhofe refused to meet with us his constituents, we were asked to leave, I never, ever experienced anything like this before. Inhofe has persisted in only meeting with the government of Ethiopia. The power is with the people. The primary election is coming up that is when you will show Senator Inhofe what his actions will bring about. If Senator Inhofe thinks that it is correct to only deal with the government of Ethiopia then you will show him that is not acceptable in November. You have collaborators in Oklahoma, NAACP is standing with you, Peace House is standing with you. I need you to keep this fight going on, we will continue to fight. Senator Inhofe has to listen to us the voters of Oklahoma."

Mr. Nathaniel Batchelder, Director of The Peace House, Oklahoma Human Rights award recipient proclaimed his solidarity with the demonstrators by saying, "I have heard about this issue from people at the United Nations, I have heard about this issue from people in the human rights movement. Peace House has sent 1000 e-mails to its membership to contact Senator Inhofe."

Mr. Adam Carter, ACORN representative (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) clearly expressed his disappointment in Senator Inhofe’s position by stating, “I am proud to be here with you to stand up to Senator Inhofe's shameful disgusting behavior. Senator Inhofe's behavior in opposing H.R.2003 is unacceptable behavior and simply wrong."

Mr. Bill Fix, a former ardent supporter of Senator Inhofe affirmed his solidarity with the demonstrators, said, “Christians have an obligation to support democracy in Ethiopia, we must in all good conscience support human rights in Ethiopia, we have to write to our Senators and demand they support H.R.2003."

The letter that triggered the wrath of Senator Inhofe’s Oklahoma City office manager, Ms. Jane Hightower is the following:

APPEAL TO SENATOR JAMES INHOFE BY OKLAHOMA CONSTITUENTS

Dear Senator James Inhofe,

We, your Oklahoma constituents, hereby fervently appeal to you, Senator Inhofe, to support the “Ethiopia Democracy and Accountability Act of 2007” which is currently before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

As you are aware, the Bill advances U.S. foreign policy in the Horn of Africa including Ethiopia in several ways: 1) support the growth of democratic institutions by helping establish a free and competitive electoral process, independent judicial institutions, a free press, and other civil liberties, 2) bolster all existing counter-terrorism efforts and allow the continuing delivery to Ethiopia of peacekeeping and security assistance, 3) supports continued delivery of all humanitarian assistance and food aid programs to Ethiopia.

We are confident that you are aware of the various credible reports including those by the State Department and Amnesty International (please see the enclosed document for more details), presenting an overwhelming evidence of the Ethiopian regime’s gross human rights violations including the imprisonment, maiming, and extra-judicial killings of thousands of innocent civilians including women and children. In addition, due to the Ethiopian regime’s poor governance and rampant corruption during the last 17 years, the Ethiopian people continue to suffer from a grinding poverty, endemic diseases such as malaria, TB, and HIV/AIDS.

The most important lesson we have learned from the experience in Afghanistan and Somalia is that what breeds international terrorism is the prevalence of oppression, poverty, and hopelessness. We are, therefore, at a loss, Dear Senator, why you oppose the Bill and side with a despotic regime. As expressed by President Bush in one of his public speeches, US policy is to stand with the people who suffer under a severe dictatorship and struggle for their freedom. It is, therefore, obvious that US interests will be served better by siding with the Ethiopian people and NOT with their oppressive dictators.

We take this opportunity to express our disappointment due to the fact that during your recent visit to Ethiopia, you declined to meet with a number of highly respected and credible individuals who would have afforded you a more accurate understanding of the realities in Ethiopia. You preferred to listen only to the representatives of the dictatorial regime.

Our real partners in the fight against international terrorism are the Ethiopian people. We, therefore, call on you, again, dear Senator, to be on the side of democracy, respect for human rights and rule of law, and support the Bill. Please do not shame Oklahoma by siding with one of the most cruel dictatorships in the world.

Respectfully,

Your Constituents in Oklahoma.

It’s now clear that the bill is the master piece of Issayas. The recent visit of Donald Payne to Eritrea proves it.

Please leave our country alone. We don’t need your stupid bill. HR2003 damages Ethiopia. So whoever is rallying for this wants the degradation of Ethiopia. I am sure Ethiopians don’t want that. Those who are going to Inhof’s office are those stupid Shabias.

This message is to Shabia and stupid Eritreans, you days are numbered. We will push you off to the red sea so that you won’t remember forever and you won’t bother Ethiopia again. Believe me this will happen soon.

United Ethiopia is stronger than before. We will defeat our enemys.

THIS IS THE MOST TERRIBLE THING TO DO INFRONT OF SENATOR OR GOVERNER. IS THE SENATOR ADMINSTERING ETHIOPIA RIGHT NOW? UNLIKE PAYN SENATOR INHOF SUPPORTED THE ETHIOPIAN GOVERNMENT, SO IF HE CHANGES HIS MIND AND LET’S SAY HE OPPOSES THE ETHIOPIAN GOVERNMENT, DO YOU THINK HE IS GOING TO BE KING OF ETHIOPIA AND DELIVER YOU A CHANGE THAT YOU ARE DREAMING LIKE SHAEBYA. THIS IS JUST CHILDISH PLAY. PROUD ETHIOPIANS NEVER BAG FOR CHANGE FROM SAFE HAVEN. THESE IS JUST WASTING TIME AND NONSENSE.IF CHANGE HAS TO COME, IT HAS TO BE FROM ETHIOPIANS NOT FROM SENATORS OF USA AND THEIR CUD FOLLOWERS.

To:
OKLAHOMA CONSTITUENTS, I appreciate the concern about the democracy in Ethiopia. But at the same time I would like to remind U of something very crucial about Ethiopia. It is a country of many ethnic groups, where when one group comes to power tries to subjugate all others. the current struggle is mostly between the Tigray and Amhara elites who had been in power in shifts. Until 1991 it were the Amhara elites now they lost and stiving to do whatever they can to restore their power. The fact is when they are in power they are not better than this regime. Read the history of Ethiopia at the king’s time and during the Derg when hey contolled most. they never fetched better. They missed,B/c they are chauvinists who can never respect other Ethiopians. I myself I disagree with the current regime in certain issues, but never I have a gut to cooperate the Amhara elites because of the points I mentioed above and their thirst of power. This bill is dangerous to Ethiopian unity and untegrity, still they support it to gain power and fight latter. Therefore, unless U listen from the people of Ethiopia at large I urge U not to support the bill. Many Ethiopians do not want both the bill and oppressors. Thank U&#59;D

Loosers are ready to do anything to tarnish the image of Ethiopia, we her children wont accept any foreign powers to come up with legislation that undermines our government. All Shaibiyans and their adopted childrens CUD and Almariams wont suceed, We will defend our nation from the cursed diasporas. Keep the pressure and we will squeez you again. Ethiopia for Ethiopians , no one shouldnt be allowed to interfer in our legal and political life, it should be kept pure Ethiopian. The suggogate mother of CUD and ONLF shaebiya cant win in this battle, it will loose the way it lost the battle in Badime and Somalia. HR2003 is dead, let the loosers try to revive it. Secretary of State Condoliza Rice stated her administration doesnt accept it. Loosers keep on marching its good for loosing weight,

Is it not fooling ourselves waiting for a solution from American congress to fix Ethiopian “problem"?. What do you think Donald Payne is doing in Eriteria? Did you really know the number of poor ,unemployed and homeless people residing in the district of this “famous” delegate? If not come to your mind and ask why he and others are having a night mare to mess up the country. We can help our country by sending a penny and coming with good ideas not rallying infront of the American congress. Even if we are tax payers ( as some of us are claiming as a right) we can ask our delegate to solve a solution we are having here in America. If we think an American congress man/women has the right to interfere with the internal problem of another country that is very interesting.
Have a good day

Look at those out of place peasants. These cabys and dish washers should go back to school and finish elementary school before being a politician. Yesterdays farmers and shoe shine boys want to teach an American law maker what democracy is. Did these former torturers of the dergue regiem, who barely speaks English, came toUS to be politician or to better themselves?

Of course by any means the world must
know the crimes comitted by the facist
TPLF regime and the tyrant Zenawi .Of
course peoples like Senator Inhofe must understand how much they’re harming the peoples of Ethiopia the way they’re defending a regime which is
violating human rights .HR2003 is the
bill for the defense and respect of
Human Rights in Ethiopia.Not a so called colonialist action against the sovereignty as supposed to represent TPLF thugs and fool diaspora peoples .

Addis (and the other UFO) what the
hell can we learn from daily pure propagandas .The only question is :
are human rights respected in the Ethiopia by the TPLF regime ?In a country where the basically rights of
writing ,expressing its own opinions
and also the free press are mussled ;
where the opponants are thrown to prison and a state of terror against
the population with the killing of
innocent peoples and where a clientelist tribal system reigns certainly the answer is NO !!!
By the way it’s becomome a habit for
TPLF thugs to accuse the patriots as
dergist and also eritreans or shabya.
If you’re looking these peoples i invite you to ask your master zenawi
aboout all these ex dergists around him and concerning shabyans well why
are you asking us while knowing that
these guys are your relatives and
acquaintenances .GOT IT ? IGNORANT !!!
THAT’S ALL Mr.UFO .
LONG LIVE THE TRUE ETHIOPIANS !!!!

whether senator who ever support the bill or not it will pass. all those weyane cadres who write comments in different name will be disappeared when HR2003 has passed. for some one who understand human rights it is simple and clear. do not abuse your own citizen and there will be no hr bills. i dont know why these few hodams are crying about the bill.
free media
free justice system
free election
those who committed crime has to face trial.
thats all what hr2003 is about. for a person who want Ethiopia united, this supposed to be joyful, but for the criminals like Agam and Z-hodo it is YEJERBA KIMAL.
I know you will say we do not need the US to tell us what to do, but you are taking money from the US,if you went to war for the money you are getting, how comes you can not stop abusing the people of Ethiopia.
peace.

Woyanees always cry foul and accuse foreigners interfering or melding in Ethiopians affair when it is against them but if it is for them they are out there to scream their hoopla.

Stop your double standard Woyanees. Don’t pay or receive any money from foreign countries if you do not want foreigners to meddle in your affair. But Ethiopians need every help to have democracy in the country.

MARK, you nailed the sucker and you made my day bro.

TEDDY, was the CA$H collector by selling back the dead bodies back to their families who only want to have proper burials of their loved ones who were killed & sold back. Whatever amount he & his likes charged for every bullets fired on our loved ones even those who were already died on the hands of the evils like this guy, he in turn got little change back from his masters. He knew making more CA$H meant firing more bullets to increase his nickels & dimes on the blood of our people. Before who was captured, he fled probably to Kenya or Sudan & come to the states under fake name.

Don’t worry TEDDY, you might think you can run away from the injustice you had done to my people, but I am sure justice is waiting for you in hell. You will suffer worse than those who you killed & to those of us whom you put in life time pains that can only be cured through prayers, forgiveness to heal. Is MENGISTU your dad or your uncle? You little coward!

HULU100, the donkoros like you & your likes don’t get it. The bill is your hope of survival for power grip in Ethiopia. Know that is only empty dear of yours & your likes. You will wake up each day to find out Ethiopia will continue to be under the real Ethiopians who are wise & unselfish… how many did you killed while your masters in the DERG fed you each day? When you run out of business you go to Washington & ask Mr. Gorilla of NJ to assist you to gain power in Ethiopia using whatever tactics possible… You guys are very funny. Welcome to the challenge of the 21st century.

University instructor’s attempt to paint good pictures of H.R. 2003 is cover up for poor academic performance

By Yirgalem Seyoum

It is to be recalled that the US House of Representatives or Congress passed the H.R. 2003 bill known otherwise the Ethiopian Democracy and Accountability Act of 2007 last October. The bill was crafted in a way to put pressure on the government of Ethiopia improve human rights situations using economic restrictions as a tool and is reportedly before the Senate.

When the bill was made public here in the country through local and international media outlets, various cross-sections of the society out rightly rejected it as it poses a threat on the sovereignty of the country as well as puts the interests of the general public at stake. Teachers of higher learning institutions, civil servants, various associations, religious institutions, among others denounced the bill in unison.

Promulgating laws and attempting to enforce it in a sovereign nation is illegal and totally unacceptable. History tells us that no nation has lead its citizens receiving laws and regulations developed by another country unless and otherwise when it is under colonization. Prime Minister Meles Zenawi said in his report to the House of People’s Representatives (HPR) that “If the US government promulgates laws for our country, then we do not need a parliament.”

We all remember that the US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice paid a visit to Ethiopia a few months before. The Secretary of State on the occasion told journalists that her government does not support the bill.

Hence, who has crafted the bill initially? We all know that the bill is the evil outcome of the congressman Donald Payne and his accomplices such as the rogue Eritrean regime as well some members of CUD who left for the US following their pardon by the government. All are anti-peace forces who don’t’ wish good for the country and we do not expect something constructive from them. We have recently learnt about the visit the congressman paid to Asmara and the moral support he gave to the regime involved in various criminal acts by supporting, financing and officially harboring international terrorists. Hence, one does not need to go through the bill to learn about it rather observe the sponsors and individuals behind it.

Scholars in some of the universities in the country have organized panel discussions to share ideas on the bill known otherwise the Ethiopian Democracy and Accountability Act of 2007. We have watched the scholarly and live discussions held in one of such institutions the-Mekelle University. The ideas forwarded by the scholars of the university how much the bill affects our nation if it is passed by the US senate was really praiseworthy.

However, a staff of same university recently attempted to show us the importance of the bill in her article she wrote to one of the websites. Human Rights teacher with the university’s law faculty, Abigail Salisbury wrote that, “Although the vast majority of Ethiopians publicly denounce the H.R 2003 bill…, the spirit of the bill is correct…” Here the instructor herself is of the conviction that the bill has no popular support. If so, what is the need to go in depth to show us how much our country would benefit provided the bill is endorsed by the senate? Do the public reject something which helps to change its lives?

Besides, she could not boldly and explicitly put the bill as correct. But there is a sort of vacillation, “The spirit of the bill…’’.If she is dead sure, she should have boldly said the bill is correct.

Salisbury also said that “[the bill] is intended to persuade the Ethiopian government to change its ways, using economic restrictions as a tool.” It is public wisdom that no nation has the right to intervene directly or indirectly for any reason or whatsoever, in the internal or external affairs of any other nation. Hence, how on earth could the US government forcefully persuade the government of Ethiopia to change its ways… [Improve its human rights situation]. If the problem they cited really exists, it should be checked and resolved only by the government of Ethiopia. No other state has entrusted with such mandate of delving into the internal affairs of others.

More surprise is in store. The instructor mentioned in her article that “… all of instructors at Ethiopian universities are made to sign a contract that we will never say anything against the government or the ruling party.” This is not something expected from such ‘scholar’. The government could not oblige as well as control what each and every instructor speaks. Hence, this is baseless and absurd fabrication.

Reporter of Walta Information Center (WIC) approached some students of the Mekelle University to have their comments on the matter. Third year law students expressed that the human rights instructor was attempting to put pressure on the students to accept the rightness of the bill.

Besides, Salisbury spent most of the period talking nonsense bragging about the mighty, history, prosperity and the like of her country which has nothing to do with her human rights class.

She also failed to appear in class for three consecutive weeks. To this effect, she was rated with ‘zero’ performance by her students and all her destructive attempts are made deliberately as cover up for her poor academic performance.

The instructor was also heard calling opposition parties in the country by names complimenting some and belittling others. She even wrote in her article as there is hatred among nations and nationalities in the country in light of the obvious fact that our nation is a home for over 80 nations and nationalities that have coexisted for centuries with love and mutual understanding.

To this end, over 130 third year law students of the university signed petition which demands the instructor to refrain from her destructive attempts and only do her teaching. In addition, the faculty’s students’ dean office also requested the instructor to give response to the demands of the students. She, however, turned down the requests of both.

If she had firm convictions in what she said, she would have given response to the demands of her students as well as the faculty’s students’ dean office rather than writing a gross distortion. No sovereign nation would accept laws and regulations designed by another country. We have also here a body in charge of promulgating laws suitable for the country. Besides, it should be underlined that the country’s development policies and strategies which have miraculously transformed the Ethiopian poor framers into a millionaire are not designed by any other state but the government itself.

Needles to state great numbers of expatriates in different higher learning institutions in the country are immensely contributing in meeting the shortage of instructors in higher learning institutions in the country. This, however, would not be compromised when they are found resorted in matters nothing to do with the teaching-learning process. Besides, those who attempt to delve into the internal matters of the country should not be overlooked.

I do not get it. What is the purpose of this article except showing progress of effort for the money received from Eritrea. We now know that Donald Payne is the employee of eritrea, and he has a lot other people working for hid him, like Al Mariam and others. It is all about money. Didn’t you know what Condi Rice said. She said her adminstration does not support such a bill. Given the situation in Keny and Somalia, nobody in the us senate wants to destabilize Ethiopia. It is the only sane nation and a friend in the Horn.

The famous aviator and billionaire, Howar Hughes, once said that there is a price for everything, meaning that evrything can be bought. Donald Payne, the stupid nigger, is the employee of the stupid Shabiya. This article is also about delivering on contract.

once again all of you are on a sinking boat where the captain of the ship is living .STOP YOUR SHILDISH JOCK !!! Assume your own
history than talking about the others as if peoples are all the same like you ,impolite ,lumpins with no occupations than jamming Nathret.com with baseless commentaries ."..KUTER BILUT TAFIA..” that’s all you are bunch
of “..KEHADI ,USELESS BANDA ..".

Whatever the TPLF thugs wrote said ,
how much they vomit their hates on this website ,they know that their
days are counted .So why they are shaking each times they heard words like HR2003 ,
violation of Human Rights ,Al Mariam
Donald Payne etc.etc. These cowards
will never admit the harms and the crimes they have comitted against the
Ethiopian peoples .They want us to
forget all their own affilation with
Shabya ,Gadaffi and even now the Bush
administration .They want us to swallow as fool peoples the whole of
the lies they are spreading on Nazret.com which they consider as their own medias of propagandas like
Aiga ,Reporter ,Walta ,Zemen ,the so
called Hager Fiker ,Ethiopian herald
even a deaf or a blind never wants to
read or hear .Dear Bros and Systs never give a damn interest of these
brain washed ,Zekatch Peoples .Let them
bark like mad dogs with their baseless and fruitless commentaries
along with their UFO visitors they
are trying to present as a multy
ethnical group of supporters .
“..YECHURO DENFATA KESAT ESKIWOTA..”
LONG LIVE THE TRUE ETHIOPIANS !!!!
GOD BLESS FREE AND UNITED ETHIOPIA !!
MOTE LE LEBA WOYANE !!!!

It’s very sad Ethiopian in Oklahoma, it’s good to know whom you are following, check who is mr Muluneh, he left Ethiopia 50 years a go, no education which tells you he is narrow mided. He never see Ethiopia developement. Dictator Mengistu with 4th grad education 17 years he ruin our country, same foot step same mind with Mr Muluneh, which he goes ethiopia to find a wife, very sad the rest they knew Ethiopia is going the right direction but they have tribal issue. Eg. W/o Tsega check here back ground. If Meles is Amhara she doesnt’ have a problem. Please our ethiopian friend let’s reunite as one ethiopia let’s fix our different, and teach our narrow minded ethiopian friend and how we can creat a better ethiopia. Not only my comment read all comment in this bord incase if you educate your self. Let’s stop this nuncec. be one people. we are one people.

Wedi Mekele,
Out of all people, I would assume you should know better. (If in fact your nice name is true) Knowing Amharic language is one thing, but to think that, once intelligent be measured by how well he/she speak Amharic, is ignorant. That is the mindset of many people in Ethiopia, or even the US where I reside. Only in this case it’s English.
anyway, I found your argument being too cheap.
Arif aysadebm, ena atisadeb.

EZRA:
i am just replaying for what one of your body said.
arif ayisadebim but has to react.

read what your body wrote before you rush to attack me bro.

WEDI DIKALA,

You better shut your mouth before you get your ass tossed to the red sea. Keep on pulling your camel rope & listen to what brothers like EHHRON & others are telling you. You’re not worthy LIBA…
