Press Release on the occasion of 14th Commemorative anniversary of Sidama Loqqee Massacre and the Massacre of the other civilians.

May 30, 2016, London

The repeated massacres and genocides of past 25 years that the TPLF’s barbaric regime has committed on unarmed civilians of all regions-and the ongoing indiscriminate massacres it is committing now are likely to continue unabated for a long time if the peoples in Ethiopia remain fragmented, divided and refuse to take the responsibility of confronting and stopping this criminal regime. Failure to do so has already unquestionably contributed to the longevity of the regime.

We, the PAFD member organizations envisage a dynamic and flexible approach with potential of accommodating the interests of all stakeholders without any differences and without actually dictating our own agendas for all the peoples in Ethiopia. This will allow all to move forward in unison in their strides towards justice, democracy and genuine self-determination, which is practically denied by the current regime. Moreover, we strongly believe that this is the only way forward to stop the ongoing genocide, to restore the rule of law, human dignity and pride and democratic order in Ethiopia.

To be able to do so, all the peoples in Ethiopia and their respective organizations must put their differences aside and unite strategically in order to end the suffering of all perpetrated by the TPLF led EPRDF’s brutal regime.

Today’s Sidama Loqqee massacre 14th commemorative anniversary isn’t unique to Sidama nation and isn’t a past history. It has been committed on tens of thousands of civilians in Ethiopia from Amhara, Afar, Benshagul, Hadya, Kambata, Ogaden Somali, Omo, Oromia, Sidama, Shakicho and the rest of regions of Ethiopia. And it is ongoing in Oromia, Ogadenia, Gambella, Konso, Omo Valley and the rest of regional, Zone and district levels.

Unconditionally condemning the past and ongoing genocides and massacres, the PAFD calls upon all organizations and peoples in Ethiopia to be united, move forward and stop the regime brutalizing them all.

PAFD also urges the international and regional communities to stand on the side of the people in order to stop the ongoing blatant human rights violations and hold the perpetrators into account both locally and in the international arena

PAFD salutes the indefatigable and resilient spirits of the Sidama Loqqee martyrs and all the other civilians who have been the victims of past and ongoing massacre by current callous regime in Ethiopia.

Finally, PAFD promises that all those wronged souls may rest in peace and that their valuable lives will be not be lost in vain. It will continue fighting for justice and democracy and righting the wrongs committed against them and the other living multitudes. PAFD will never forget your courageous and honorable sacrifices for generations to come.

    THE MAIN REASON ETHIOPIA IS A CONTINUOUS BEGGAR WITHOUT EVEN BEING ABLE TO FEED IT’S OWN CITIZENS IS BECAUSE ALL OFFICIALS ARE UNQUALIFIED IGNORANTS WITH FAKE DEGREES THAT BELIEVE KILLING ANYONE THAT CHALLENGES THEIR LEADERSHIP SKILLS.
    .TPLF AFFILIATED STUDENTS AND THE MILITARY AFFILIATED KIDS HAD BEEN GETTING FREE PASS ALL OVER LEARNING INSTITUTIONS EXAMS FOR MORE THAN TWO DECADES. THE TPLF AFFILIATED STUDENTS HAD BEEN GETTING AND STILL ARE GETTING EXAMS OF EVERY KIND INCLUDING JOB ENTRANCE EXAMS AT TOP GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS AHEAD OF THE EXAM DATE FOR THE LAST 20+ YEARS. TAMRAT LAYNE FIRED ALL PROMINENT UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS RIGHT WHEN HE BECAME PRIME MINSTER TO PAVE WAY TO TPLF KIDS.
