By ex –Cadre of EPRDF
Ethiopia is a multi-nation state with the total population of about 85 million .For the last 21 years Ethiopia has been ruled by the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) Coalition party, led and dominated by the TPLF of the minority Tigrian nation group. Every Ethiopian citizen in the country has an unwritten obligation to join EPRDF.
Those who refuse to join the repressive regime of EPRDF party , will be subjected to:
- Intimidation (to frighten somebody into doing),
- Retaliation (deliberately harm somebody in response),
- Revenge for harm in his employment, or
- Denial of being recruited in the public sector.
- Labeling as a member of “terrorist” organizations –
Those members and leaders of EPRDF try to Convince the EPRDF members and The hardcore leaders of TPLF about Ethiopians have the right and vested interest of democracy, equality and freedom of expression as well as the respection of fundamental human right in their Country,most of change seeker are at different time relocated and downgrading from the position to undesirable place and position ,discriminated from their party secret and his work mate ,mentally and physically harassed,making him to disappeared , labeling them as opposition aficionados and neoliberlas and eventually if all the above not succeeded legal harassment is undertaking .
Generally, the dictatorial government of Ethiopia led by EPRDFhas been compromised fundamental value of humanity by being loyal to the TPLF party , not based on national and public interest . EPRDF focused primarily on Oromia , Ethiopia’s most populous region and one long troubled by heavy -handed government repression .
To restore democratization and human right in the country, the best option in my view is creating intolerant of injustice within the EPRDF party and mobilizing the EPRDF members of injustice fighters within the party and the government and connecting the change seeker leaders of EPRDF with oppositions activity and objectives could be basic movement for legal and illegal opponents of EPRDF .
