Ginbot 7 Statement on Ethiopia Election 2010

The Landslide Victory of Zenawi’s Regime

Ginbot 7
25 May 2010

Press Release

Ethiopia, the primal hellhole, that best exemplifies the enduring power of savage repression, has just concluded the much-anticipated 2010 election. Zenawi’s regime is claiming that it has won a landslide victory (unconfirmed reports put the winning at 98 percent). This type of unparalleled victory depending on one’s political persuasion can be heralded by the “victors” as a miracle and by the “vanquished” as ample evidence that Ethiopia for, all intents and purposes, is headed for a one–party dictatorship.

The 2010 election was staged with Meles Zenawi’s regime in full control of the Election Board, the media, the judiciary, and the security forces. In fact, the whole purpose of the election was to gain symbolic legitimacy and to look clean in front of donor nations than satisfying the growing democratic appetite of the Ethiopian people. This basic fact underscores the point that Zenawi’s regime, in order to satisfy the demands of the timid international community, will continue to hold ritual sham elections that are totally meaningless to the effort of building democracy in Ethiopia.

Time and again, the dictatorial regime has shown its contempt for the ballot box and lack of respect for its own Constitution. Rather, it seems hell bent on maintaining the status quo through brute force no matter how much clamor for change there is among the Ethiopian people.

The international community, for its own sake, needs to break its “conspiracy of silence” and vehemently condemn this sham election and seriously look at the damage its hypocracy will cause to its long-term interests in a geopolitically important Ethiopia. Its turning a blind eye to the intolerable repression and to the incessant rigged elections is viewed by the Ethiopian people as a measure of the West’s collusion with a despised regime ruling at the barrel of a gun. The “stability” over freedom stance of the EU and the U.S. has given Zenawi’s regime the green light to obliterate the hunger for democracy that Ethiopians showed to the world during the 2005 election.

Additionally, the misguided notion by the West that the Meles regime is a force for stability in the volatile Horn of Africa region is patently false and has further emboldened the regime to be more repressive and commit egregious human rights violations and extra-judicial killings. Today, more than ever, Ethiopians have become convinced that the only way to defend themselves and their rights against a terrorist regime that is brutalizing them is to fight for their rights by any and all means necessary. A spiraling conflict in Ethiopia will, of course, have dire consequences for the stability of the strategically important Horn of Africa.

Meles has concluded that the West is satisfied with the status quo and is going to give him a free pass, intermittently issuing the same old tired statement of “concern” while never forcefully condemning his repressive actions. This cynical attitude will certainly run its course and in the long run prove to be a costly mistake and inimical to the vital interests of the West. It is time for the West to wake up before it is too late. Dictators are neither reliable nor very good allies against the forces of extremism. It is absolutely impossible to stabilize the Horn of Africa without first restoring peace and stability in. Ethiopia.

Ginbot 7 pays homage to all those who lost their lives in this farce of an election and calls, once again, on the Ethiopian people to join hands in bringing this national shame to an end.

Dumpy sebseb project you won’t see anything and get nothing than cry. Go head oppose the government the next five years business as usual.

Perhaps cry to some U.S law maker or to president Obama, woyane did this woyane did that as the old day hyena type of agitations etc etc.

The reality is though EPRDF and the Ethiopian people knows who to elect, and indeed they did it at day light broad on Sunday. I love victory.

I said it before and I will say again. Ginbot 7 is the ONLY reliable Ethiopian`s HOPE for clean government structure. The ETHIOPIAN people by any means and way must STOP the WOYANE looters. Meles/Sibehat are no more than rich gangs.

“Today, more than ever, Ethiopians have become convinced that the only way to defend themselves …is to fight for their rights by any and all means necessary,” :roll:including by peacefully participating in the election in droves as they did. i mean for the average observer it doesnt appear fighting is what the people want. even dr. birhanu himself chose his own comfort and peace and flee to america after shamlessly pleading for pardon from meles. so what makes him think that others will fight, the fight he ran away from:?::?::?:. the guy must assume their life is not as precious and important as his is:>

Now that all the fake oppositions are out of the way with this sham election, the true opposition under the leadership of Ginbot 7 will emerge more vibrant and strong. The Ethiopian people have been suffering under this apartheid regime for the last 19 years. It is about time that Ethiopians gather under the leadership of GInbot 7 and wage unrelenting struggle to defeat “Botha” legesse zenawi and his cronies. Apartheid is inhumane. we defeated it in south Africa. let us join together and destroy it from the land of Ethiopia so that a person in Ethiopia will be rewarded for his effort and not because he happens to be from the tigrean region. Let us fight to the day when all Ethiopians are treated equally. why should an Ethiopian be treated as a second class citizen because he is not from tigrai? is not it abhorrent to disqualify some body because he is from another ethnic group? Do i have to lose my job just to provide an opportunity for a tigrean? shame on us for allowing this to happen to us. It is about time that we face the truth and fight for our own dignity.

What Ginbot 7 should do is
1. Get out of Eritrea which demonstrated many times that they are ethiopias enemy. In addition to that, Eritrean gov’t and it’s president are more worst that melese and Ethiopian gov’t. How dare you associate your self with this mad dog and expect to be believed you are fighting for democracy and equality.
2. Come back to a democratic path. Believe me if there was a better candidate, no body would elect weyanne. This time round they are better than they used to be. So to elected , you are expected to be twice better than kinijit.
3. Forget about arm straggle. In 2005, if you had taken all the seats available for you, yiou would have been the major opposition with a big chance to win the general election. Ethiopia can not afford a civil war. Ppl are enjoying the reltive peace they have now.
4. No Ethiopian trust you. U abandoned ((193 dead). 40,000 prisoner Ethiopians). And run to America.

Comment from: Convinient#@! [Visitor]  

Ohhh realy? How convinient? Well… let me give you my “Genbot 8 or 9 or what ever day you choose…Statement”
The worst effect of the sunday polls, is that it empowers guys like you- Birhanu- guys who never do much- never risk much, slouch on your couch and put out these statements!@! (Don’t even think to say “but I was there 5 years ago,” the people with balls remained in Ethiopia went to prison, or election knowing they maynot have a fair shake, you on the other hand ran away with your tails bitween your legs before one can say “there goes Birahnu")
Let’s not lose site of the fact, people in the opposition parties from the not so-famous ones to the to the popular ones- personalities in prison, those who died or those who just lost the election are a million times better than you. Know that, the best you would be- in our future history books- is a footnote.
Because you- AlMariam,Eskinder and the like live here in America-, drive a less than 5years old Car, live in a nice neighbourhood- afraid to drive thru the less than nice neighbourhoods of america, and have the guts to say this! Ofcourse this is intended to our cab drivers,and parking attendants, who work hard to win their daily bread and flock to your sites, and radios give away their hard earned money… and see their brothers and sisters get shot in addis and other places because a tenth of the money you get here will trickle to buy guns to shoot other ethiopians. Let me ask you one more question and I will stop. If I was back home and voted for you or for one of your former freinds, what guarantee do you give me that you will not waste my vote and a million others’ for personal gain.
My “ginbot 8, 9 or… ” hopes no ethiopian of anykind will die by a gun shot including you Birhanu or because of you.

G7 is vindicated for the most part by this sham election. The only way for Ethiopia to be liberated from this brutal dictatorship is by waging armed struggle, and also attacking the woyane gov by any means necessary. Our country is held hostage. It is up to each of us to set her free!

G7 if you have militray wing you should send a FEDAYN to take out lidetu Ayele, Hailu Shewil and Mesfin Woldemariam first before you open your mouth to the real enemy Meles. The above individuals are the real enemy of Ethiopia and those who were killed i 2005 in Addis Ababa Street. Revenge, they sent your kid to slaughter and then they collect money from Meles not to cooperate with the rest of the oppositions.

Stop blaming the opposition groups. They did what they could. The responsibility lies on each individuals in the diaspora as well as in Ethiopia. We need to elect a good leader, who ever is charismatic, not afraid to die by being backed by groups of G7, EPPF, etc. People, do you remember how Ethiopia defeated Italy? It was the joining hands of the majority, Oromo and Amara. Remember, they have done it without Eritrea because Eritrea was Italy’s colony. They have not done it with Tigray because I don’t know why. History tells us that the majority of deaths and sacrifice came from Amara and Oromo. Tigre is also more than welcome if they are sincere. So, once again, we need the alliance of Amara and Oromo, hopefuly Tigre to defeat the current regime. Meles’s night mare was Medrek because he doesn’t like allinace and unification. That is why University students are being continously divided and hate eachother because the unification is a nightmare for Meles. There has to be sacrifices in order to accomplish this.

Long live Ethiopia!

lots of ppl in Ethipia are convinced to join “the fight against Weyane” if a visa is granted to them to travel to the US under the invitation of birhanu nega. hahahaha birre, sit dawn and stay away from politics. A politician needs a passion, courage, and determination to be successful. All these substances are monoplized by PM Meles, and nothing is left for you.Even after his retirement, you will not be the immediate “werash” under no circumstances. kizenam, do you remember as you pass your urine on to your trouser as the federal police caught you in 2005??

I hear the painful utterance of a dying man. man. Let me tell you the background of the fake worrier Dr. Girgir.
He once was a hot EPRP activist along with Negussie Tache and Tamirat Layne. They weere in the same circle.Nigussie and Birhanu were school mates at Nefas Silk Comprehensive and they lived in Meshulekia and Beklobet area not far from each other.
Tamirat joined them in the struggle in the early days of EPRP and then left for Assimba while Birhanu walked it through the Sudanese border. Negussie joined AAU after a brief imprisonment and graduated in Accounting,. He was working at the Repi Soap Factory when Woyane came to power. The fact that Tamirat was the the helm of power gave Negussie a life line and amassed money. He was a very stingy man as a student as well.
This is the time Dr. Birhanu got a call fromm his friend Tamirat Lyane to join him in the government. It was too nice to turn down (A possible Ministrial position) and while the stage was being set, Tamirat was taken to jail for a massive fraud case. Thankfully, Birhanu hails from a rich family and his father gave him money so that he settles in Addis. Biriahnu became the darling of the Addis elites with his atriculate communication and bold statements…..then came the 2005 election where another old EPRP guru Birhane Mewa invited Birhanu Nega to form Kestedamena party. As you may know, Birhane was the Presedent of both the Ethiopian and AA Chambers and he is another outspoken individual with a very natural convincing power.
The more his is closer to the throne, Brihanu couldn’t handle the blessing. He was dribling to set foot in Arat Killo palace…then he rest is history..
Why am I telling you all this:
In the above clip, a list of what is wrong and a solution is described.
But who is Ginbot 7 and who are the people behind it? Ask yourselves:
What stroke me to write this rather long message is that in the clip it says: Le firifari yaderu,
I hope you get the point. Birhanu was the first in the queue to get his firifari from woyane’s in the early nineties and when that failed another try to prepare the Firfir himslef, Oh! that one failed misrably too…Humm let me try another time? Let me try to collect money through Ginbot 7, this time it should work…there are 20,000 Cab drivers and Car Park attendants in the US, if I make them a member and at least collec X amount of Money, I can always go to Portugal and have a sunny holiday with Anna…and listen Tina Turner’s song…What love got to do with it…This is Economics 101 my
friends enjoy the Tom and Jerry! You won’t get bored I can assure you.

Thanks to the so called Kinijit from 2005, the hopes of diversity is long gone. Had they taken up their seats in parliament then, we would have seen a good representation of the Ethiopian people in the house in this election. The now Landslide victory by EPRDF is an outcome of Kinijit’s failure. Although I am not happy that we get to see more EPRDF representation on the floor, I think this is the only realistic option we have now. Any opposition party from now on should learn from past mistakes and work towards building a party build on ideas (not frontier for the cause of opposing other parties), and get our country in a rolling mode for our next generation.

All Opposition parties join to one party and lets paralyze the looter Government until they flee the country for good.

God will answer people cry

As true as said it, Meles does not like unity.I remebered when meles took power in 1991,the first stratage was divide and rule, send to jail or kill anyone who cross his line including his friends.Unless something comes from God,it is useless to fight and kill innocent people in the process. I know and beleive God will punish him in his mysterious way.May be something happens to the one he loves most in his family.When things happens,he thinks what he did to those poor people who died because they could not afford to buy bread.Any one could afford to buy bread during Megistus dictator ruling.During that time 67% of GDP went to the war but when meles took power,67% must be spend to help the people because there was no war so they did not spend it.I was thinking when meles took power everything would be much better than mengistu’s.what we experienced the opposite.The majority could not afford basic necessity.

The biggest winner in this election is G7. Woyane exposed itself to the world. The “Peaceful” opposition wannabee peed on by the tplf they trusted. At the end of the day, the only thing standing is G7 and the other armed groups like EPPF. Now they look like the only hope for freedom. For those of you who are attacking Dr Berhanu, let me remind you one thing: Abraham and Asegdom were murdered by Ethiopians after they bombed Graziani. Yes, we love our people, but all our people are not what they seem on every critical day. If you attack those who are standing up to woyane, I will not be surprised. As I said, we have many colors. However, for the most part, Ethiopians are brave people. Therefore, they will support armed struggle.

What exactly exemplifies here is that, the Ginbot 7 leader Brhanu Nega is by any stretch of any interoperation of terror, is an acclaimed terrorist in whom it was proven by the hard evidence of video and audio files provided by our countries intelligence and by collaboration of multiple foreign intelligence entities, all the way to the land of Arabs and the capital city of Eritrea Asmara.
I did not make this up, your own manifesto in which you made public clearly sys of your terrorist distractive plan, on how change should come about, including by your addmitions on multiple interviews you made on disgruntled oppositions radio stations, that cries fouls and sneezes every time the honorable Pm. Meles Zenawi makes a move to build democracy and infrastructure for our ever improving Ethiopia in every aspects of life.
By which standard and remedies of democracy is violence and democracy has worked hand in hand to bring about a change of democracy in society or countries. In addition, you Brhanu Nega will then be the one who will organiz an armed struggle to bring about a lasting peaceful democratic change to our people and our country!
As always you the flamboyant and womanizer Brhanu Nega’s interest is, as clear as a whistle and that is to get as many attention as you can get and if incase your terrorist manifesto works, in which it has 0 chance of succeeding to grab power and send our country to hail and sliding loops, as your cousin the bloody monotonous dictator Mengistu Hilemarim did. You can be rest assured that will not happen under the watch of the Ethiopian people, simply because they have defied and renounced violence forever. GOD blesses the ancient land of ETHIOPIA.

Ginbot 7 of all parties should not say anything, because it is Dr. Birhanu who abondened the addis population and fled the country.He is the one that put the acceptance of the opposition into question. Sometimes I wonder when we are going to hear or read the so called party leaders say they made a mistake.when are they are going to humble themselves , listen, observe and learn from the people?

Is this video about DURG? I’m confused cuz all the things they talked about happened during the DURG regime.
aren’t they the one who tried to assassinate a government officials and tried to destablize the country? and isn’t their leader living in comfort in the U.S? and he wants people to pick up arms and fight? i think they are misguided party. I WILL NOT JOIN GINBOT 7

This not at all a surprised to see Meles acting this way. What do we expect from him? He is the dictator.

No president runs for election for 25 years.

The only solution for Amharas and Oromos is to stand united as we are knotted together and fight the enemy as our grand and great grandfathers did.

Tigres are showing their support to Meles by flocking into Addis to mimic Addis’s resident. They seem to be happy with the repression of Amharas, Oromos,Gurages, and all other ethnic groups and living high at the expense of others.

Very sad if you choose peace and slavery at any cost even freedom.

Weyane is in power because they choose struggle than slavery.

Those who try to put down G7, you don’t even have a slight moral to accuse G7 and their leaders. G7 is our solution. There is nothing wrong they did so far. They are our hero. They boycott the MP seat in order to respect each and every ballot of the people, they paid the price for that; imprisoned and harassed.
If they were really looking for their comfort, they would have taken the seat. They are always our hero. Noone in our history has challenged the Weyane dictator as Kinjit-Andnet-G7. It is only Weyane who is responsible for the death of 193 people during last election.
If the opposition challenges and speaks out about the mischief of the weyane, weyane will shoot, kill and imprison people, blaming opposition for non being quiet is nonsense, and coward, Shame generation, unless you are Weyane trying to use your divide and rule principle.
Now, i need information on how to join G7, and do my part. Atleast we can pave the way for the next generation. We had enough of the weyane, weyane will never learn from its mistake, It become more and more arrogant each time when challenged in any way, peaceful or non-peaceful way.

How can one have respect to Ginbot 7 - an organisation led by two part time politicians who have time and again run away from the scene of the actual struggle ?!
Why can’t they get real ? The West cannot play the major part in changing the political situation in Ethiopia. Yes it can play a fairly imporatnt part. The fight is by Ethiopians in Ethiopia.
The most the whiteman can do is keep his money. The rest is lip service.
I think what Berhanu and his colleagues in Ginbot 7 need to do is have some respect to the Ethiopian people.
They haven’t even directed the core message of their press statement to the people that matter the most - the Ethiopian people.

What is hypocritical is to advocate something that you are not prepared to do. That’s what Ginbot 7 are at present. A bunch of hypocrites !

Dr. Birhanu Nega is in Death row! he might be safe here in u.s. but, we will caught him some where, some time, in Asmara/ Somalia! he will be caught one day.

Eritrea is the worst place to be in the whole planet! RED SEA AFAR are tying to get their RED SEA and ASSEB back! the KUNAMA are fighting and killing shabian soldiers EVERY DAY. the Bilen,tigre and other Muslim Eritrea are doing same against shabia.

What ever you do in the Ethiopian empire; be it election, armed struggle or any other forms of social movements will not be successful without participation and recognition of the giant OROMO Population.

This is the mistake all Ethiopian ( Habesha ) parties are missing.

The Woyane piglets do not get too excited, things will be changing very soon. Your half goat and half man master and his stooges will pay the price for what they are doing to the Ethiopian people. Your master may think he will run away like that murderer Mengistu but this time it is a dream.

(Halafi neger)

You have the right to free speech,but please don`t try to call “jihade” or “Armagedon”
By calling the future of Ethiopian youths for violence and
distruction .They deserve schools, hospitals and apportunities.
The new generaton of Ethiopians youth`s reject second gussing of their future.
They choose peace more than election.
They choose the future more than the past.
They choose development than a hand out.
They choose known leadership than unknown comers.
Do not dare to call hope of the future Ethiopian youths for destruction and violence.
That kind of call is unacceptable. people voted for the rulling party not only because they trusted the leadership but mainly they rejected the oppositions plan.

G7 is the way forward!!!
It is clear to see the Name Gibot 7 scares the life out of the Tigre goons.

The tigre Bozenes need to know that Ethiopia is not their private property. they are reprsenting only 5% of Ethiopia. there is no way they can kill, steal, blakmail, torture and lock-up Ethiopians just to make sure they stay in power.

we know Tigray is the most chigaram region of Ethiopia but that does not give you the right to steal from other parts of Ethiopia & take it to ever chigaram region that never gets enough no mater what you steal.

down with Tigre nationalism!!!
Long live Ethiopia!!!!

We have two victories in this election:
1. The communist weyane true nature is exposed.
2. The useless oppositions are out of game

How wise is the Ethiopian people. For sure weyane itself didn’t expect such a result. I afraid they will allow some revotes and recounts and let few oppsitions regain their seat. That will be a defeat for the people. Please oppositions accept the result as it is. That is how the people wanted it to be. None of you desreve a seat. That will prolong our suffering under wyane. Don’t be a escapegoats for weyane
