Ethiopia: Amhara Protests Erupt Across Gonder

Amhara Protests Welkait Gonder
Ethiopia is facing a violent protest in the Amhara regional capital Gonder over the question of identity of the Welkait and Tegede people.

By TesfaNews,

Ethiopia is facing a violent protest in the Amhara regional capital Gonder over the question of identity of the Welkait and Tegede people. So far six civilians and four police officer reportedly killed.

Like the Oromo protests that rocked the Oromia region few months ago while resulting the killing of over 400 protesters, the Amhara protests that just broke out today in Gonder also involves state appropriation of land. It is about annexation and the forceful imposition of Tigre identity up on the Amhara people of Welkait, Tegede, Telemt and Armachiho.

Twenty five years ago, when the government led by the Tigray Liberation Front (TPLF) introduced a federal system of administration in the country based on language, the people of Welkait and Tegede, who are predominantly Amhara and speaks Amharic, have been forced to be administered under the Tigrai regional authority despite their strong objection.

A committee that was set up since to advance the voice of these Amhara people had pleaded the government all along to respect their Amhara identity as well as return their annexed land back under the Amhara regional government. But, all their efforts were in vain.

Inspired by the recent Oromo uprising, the question of Amhara identity raised by the people of Welkait, Tegede and Telemt become a sensitive and urgent matter among the entire Amhara population.

The ongoing protest in Gonder, however, started after Tigray regional police attempted to arrest the lead member of the Amhara identity committee member, Col. Demeke Zewdu, disguised as federal police.

Hundreds of Amhara protesters then went to the streets in protest, chanting an end to Tigray annexation of Amhara land as well as an end to a minority Tigre rule in Ethiopia.

The protesters resisted the arrest of their leader by blocking all roads leading to Col. Demeke Zewdu’s residence and when resisted by armed police, they start attacking vehicles and businesses that are affiliated to the ruling TPLF.

As always, the paranoid regime start blaming Eritrea for the violent protest.

      1. How long do you think going to take before TPLF thugs blaming Eritrea for up-rising of the Gonder people? Remember; Eritrea was blamed for the Oromo’s up-rising. The TPLF thugs even displayed evidence that was supposedly captured. Of course the piles of ammunition and weapons they displayed turns out to be an old picture of weapons that the US captured in Fallujah many years back. Now I am
        guessing the name of Eritrea once again will pop up for “instigating the Amhara up-rising”.
        So, the blaming of ShaEbia is a sure thing to follow.

        1. Each and every single woyane will blame Shaebia till the last step to hell, there is no doubt about it. Woyane is obsessed by Shaebia-phobia.

    1. The time has come now. This is the beginning of the end!!. All Amhars should rise from all corners of Ethiopia. Other people should also intensify the struggle. Eritrea should give moral support and very broad media coverage. Let’s burry these cockroaches & start a civilized life!!

      1. Which cockroaches the ones in Asmara, it is a good and realistic idea, so the Eritrea people can start living a civilized life…

      2. It is time to bring back Welqait, Tsegedia, Tselemit, and Humera back to Gonder, to he Amhara land. It is time bring back the Amhara language and culture back to Gonder. It time to contain Tigrai back to the pre-1991 border. With such action, there will be peace in Ethiopia and gone shall be the dream of “ABAI
        TIGRAI’ for good.

        To the Amhara, this is fight and time to bring back Gonder in the map and to contain Tigrai to the pre-1991 map.

          1. Hi dog. The Amharas are fighting for their own rights not for Shaebia. If they do, they shall set themselves free, if they don’t they will remain slaves and second citizens in their own country next to Tigray. The choice is clear. Shaebia is simply a spectator. If it happens that these people need some kind of assistance, we will consider helping them the way we know best.

          2. ዎ……….. ሱዚ… . ሱዚ የዉ………..ኣታዮ የለኽይ ድኺ…. ብዳርባ እምኒ እላተሃደነኡ ወያነና…. አረ ስለ መለስ………. ሱዚ የዉ! ብመቶ ፐርሰንት ተመርጭና ኸመይ ቢሎም ኸምዚ ልበለ ገበን ይፍጽምዋቶ፧ ሱዝየ ተገፍዕልና ስለ እኖኺ!!!

        1. you entity called ‘hidrom’ you don’t know your history how come to know wolkait’s history.please before talking about wolkait read deeply about you own history and identity

  2. Eight month ago today Oromo Protests started in Oromia (Ginchi). On the same day Amhara Protests started in Amhara region (Gonder). OromoProtests + AmharaProtests ==> The ultimate recipe for the Ethiopian people to bury the TPLF junta once and for all !

  3. Ten dead in the town of Gondar as residents clash with TPLF forces

    By ESAT News,

    In one of the deadliest days in the town of Gondar, northern Ethiopia, six residents and four members of regime forces were killed on Tuesday.

    The killings began when TPLF forces from Tigray came to the town of Gondar in the wee hours of the morning on Tuesday and apprehended four members of a committee that spearheads the political demands by the people of Wolkait and Tegede as regards their identity as Amharas. The people of north Gondar have been peacefully demanding the government to recognize them as Amharas and abolish the Tigrayan identity imposed on them by the regime 25 years ago.

    The TPLF forces were at the door of the fifth committee member, Col. Demeke Zewde at 5 a.m. on Tuesday when shots were fired as the Colonel refused to surrender to the forces, according to witnesses.

    The Colonel returned fire, killing two of the TPLF security operatives, witnesses told ESAT on the phone. Having heard the Colonel was besieged by the forces, residents of Gondar in turn surrounded the TPLF forces resulting in hours of standoff.

    The whereabouts of the Colonel is not known but sources told ESAT that the residents had overpowered the TPLF forces and secured the release of the Colonel and took him to safety.

    Gunfire was heard all day in Gondar on Tuesday and the regime has been moving the army and security into the town. Witnesses said they saw heavy artillery and convoys of soldiers entering the town.

    Having heard the news of the fight, armed people from Armacheho came to Gondar in several buses to defend their compatriots who were under attack by the regime.

    Shops and vehicles belonging to the business empire of the regime were set ablaze by the irritated residents, some armed, and who were seen on the street all day chanting anti TPLF slogans.

  4. What amazes me about Weyane’s stupidity is while they are living among 90 million Ethiopians who hate them and look at them like a foreign occupier,they are sleepless to destroy Eritrea.Like the wise saying “if you are living in a glass house don’t throw a stone”.Well sooner than later they will taste their own bitter pill that was prescribed to Eritrea,by Dr. Sebhat Nega, Dr.Gebru Asrat.Dr.Seye Abrha under the supervision of Chief surgeon Meles Zenawi.

    1. The one million dollar question is that, What will happen if Eritreans in Gash Barka region demonstrate against the policy of the regime on grabbing their lands?

      1. Sorry, that does not exist in our dictionary! Eritrea is a harmonious one nation! Not divided by ethnical federalism like you Morons.
        In Eritrea, we are all equal in the eyes of the nation as in the eyes of Alah/God..

          TPLF and PFDJ are the same face of one coin.

      2. The Wolkait issue is an old issue about redistricting. The Wolkait people are just asking to remain in the Amhara-speaking fold and not be forcibly lumped in the Tigray Tigrinya speaking administrative region.

      3. Hey Weyane village idiot unlike your TPLF lead Ethiopia there is no KILIL or nations and nationality’s in Eritrea.There is only one nation called Eritrea one flag one people where any Eritrean could live in any part of his country as he wishes.Thank goodness we have more land and sea than we need.Just worry about the fire you created(KILIL) is going to consume you soon.

  5. The Ethiopian government led by weyane has been such a BAD-TEMPERED COW of East Africa. I say to weyane ” chill out ferochious lil weyane”
    First and formost, the people of Tigray deserve not hatred but friendship with all peoples of Ethiopia and Eritrea. But, this little hateful clique of weyane won’t help the poor people of Tigray. Weyane kept creating conflicts here and there, such as Gondar, Oromia, Afar, Gambela, Ogaden, Amara Kilil, debub hizboch and all these will bear nothing but cooking a flame for the poor people of Tigray.

    1. Yes indeed let’s all hope (afka y’ sAr) but the preference given to Tigrayans in virtually every sector of the country is all too real for the folks on the ground can only be expected to react in vengefull, unable or willing to distinguish woyanes from Tigrayans. Therefore i call on all of us to do our part to prevent the looming GENOCIDE. lt is time for Tigrayans to rise above narrow nationalism and demand the arrest of woyane leaders and accomplices to face justce before the Ethiopian people

      1. IT is time to think of innocent tigrians, as for the Eritreans and the rest of Ethiopia, Oromo,Amhara,benshangul gambellas and the ogadenis- i think it is a new chapter, and we are well confident it is going to work for both countries.I wonder what fate has instore for the innocent, destitute Tigians????

  7. Col. Demeke Zewdu (middle) is now joining the popular resistance and fighting the weyane riffraff militia army. victory to the Gonder amara people.

  8. Whatever happen to the Woyane Troops that were heading to the Eritrean border? My guess is Woyane Troops heading to Gondar from Eritrean border.
    I can’t wait to hear what Sentek will say 🙂

  9. Get up, Stand up.... · Edit

    First, Oromo uprising. Now, Amhara uprising. Who’s going to be next???? Evetnually, there will be nationwide uprising with which Woyne won’t know what to do with. Then, Woyane will just leave and live off the miliions it stashed abroad for its officials.

  10. Weyane junta is in a big paradox for the first time, by one side how to abandon a country were one get 100% People’s approval, by the other the reality on the ground that starts last November to shake the minor junta in all Oromia & today in Amhara..It’s a big dilemma for poor weyane on what to do next

          FYTI we will also get Assab back.

      2. I understand you are angry, irritated and frustrated to see your country men killed by Ethiopians and lying down in the trash where he belong you can pretend everything is okay ,but I know it’s killing you inside. You did everything to be accepted by Ethiopians but Ethiopians will never accept you because you are their slave.

    2. 99% of this revolution is preparing the ground to living harmonousely with our neighbourly country Ethiopia, which of course I agree has been wrapped up in some wild dream for good more than half a century, about Eritrean ports.my point is we extend the olive branch to Ethiopia, uncoditionally.

  14. There is no attention grabing headline that will ever save shabo at this point. Amahar is geez brothers to Tigri, always find common ground to work it out. The area called Agew Awi is our common place where wollo, tigri and gonder meet to discuss whatever we need to work out. Welkait has always been part of the soloution not a problem. If Amahar to march anywhere, Asmera would be the next place. Geeting your hopes up, reading ESAT as facts wouldnt take away your problems. But, its good to see shabo has good intentions when it comes yo Ethiopia, point taken.

    1. You lying Weyane since when do you became Ethiopian? If there is any society with incurable identity crisis in the world,look no farther than Tigraians.What a curse.

    1. Ethiopia: Israel Works To Evacuate Israelis After Ethnic Violence

      Israel’s embassy in Ethiopia is working with a nongovernmental organization, the Jewish Agency for Israel, to evacuate a group of 23 of the organization’s emissaries from the Ethiopian city of Gondar, where ethnic violence broke out in the city July 12, the Jerusalem Post reported July 13.

      The latest reports indicate that the emissaries have been safely moved to the airport and are waiting for a flight out of the city.

      The Jewish Agency for Israel is known for assisting Jewish diaspora groups to immigrate to Israel. The saga surrounding the migration of Ethiopian Jews to Israel has been a long and complex one.

  18. The YouTube video is fake. They’re not even in Ethiopia. Listen to what he’s saying.

    Regarding tplf – may they fail. May they fall. And may they stop being spon fed by the west!!!

    4. “ስረ ትግራዎይ”?? Don’t make me laugh, you peasant!

      (1) Well, we know from history that the Shifta Tigraway Yohanes cooperated with the British in their attack against King Tedros and later using the 1000 guns that the British forces left him as a payment for his traitor services he terrorized the regions around Tigray. But his Tigray forces were to be routed in Mettema by the Sudanese Mahdis and his head was cut off and hauled as war trophy to Khartoum. So much for “ስረ ትግራዎይ”! — አግረይ አውጸኒ ሃደምቲ !!
      (2) The Ottaman Turks controlled everything going in and out of the Horn of Africa for 300 years. “ስረ ትግራዎይ” my foot!
      (3) Thanks to Shaebia, the TPLF learned to speak, read and write in Tigrinya and everything else — and Shaebia led them to Addis Ababa and protected them from elimination. Of course, the TPLF had to kneel down and kiss Shebia’s ass. “ስረ ትግራዎይ” my ass!
      (4) When the TPLF got drunk with the newly found wealth and manpower of Ethiopia, just as Yohanes did 130 years before, they started dreaming of Abay Tigray and started harassing Wolkayit, the Oromos and Eritrea. Well, just as in Mettema, the TPLF forces were taught a lesson they will never forget. They were defeated on the plains of Assab and Tsorona, leaving over 100,000 dead. The port of Assab and Abay Tigray — just a dream! No sight of “ስረ ትግራዎይ”!! ሕልሚ ሕጆም ተሪፎም !

        EMPTY BRAVEDO

        1. Eske ayeneyti iya eta giega z´tezareba n´gerena? History revisionism will not help your cause. Empty bravado? Eritreans? Are you kidding me? Natatkum neger memelisu iyu zegerm.

          1. 1.Emporor yohannes army was not defeated in metema .history tells that Emperor Yohannes had acted rashly and had made himself vulnerable, going beyond enemy lines in range to enemy shots as victory was going to his side. Mortally wounded from a gunshot, he had been carried to his tent,The Mahdists brought the Emperor’s body back to their capital at Omdurman, where the head was put on a pike and paraded through the streets.
            btw, if Mahdis had defeated yohannes army, they would have crossed the border and brought much damage in tigray. but, there was no trace of mahdists in the region.after the death of their leader ,the army finally decided to pull back from the area.
            2.The Mahdist regime took control of Sudan in 1881 and began fighting the Ottoman rulers of Sudan and Egypt. The Ethiopian Empire ignored most of this fighting until the Ottomans sent a large force to the south of Sudan. Then the Empire intervened to protect its interests in the region, Imperial Army troops launched a large campaign in opposition to both the Mahdists and the Ottomans. This diversion allowed the Mahdists to consolidate their gains in the west while the Ottomans took control of the North and it allowed the Empire to gain control of the south east.
            3. TPLF began fighting alongside the EPLF at a time when a military victory by the EPLF was a distant prospect. In fact, in 1982, the TPLF sent half its force to Nakfa to save the EPLF which was on the verge of defeat.

            Ebay-Asmera…. is it enough?

          2. Not only did Yohanes lose his head (literally) in Mettema, all his forces (and his commanders which included Alula) disbanded and took flight. And King Menelik of Showa moved in right away and took care of the mopping operations.

  21. Is this an eritrean news website or is it an ethiopian news website?????? Everytime i come here there is more news about ethiopia than eritrea.

    1. TN is a news site with full of Hope and also happens to be very much of interest to Eritreans and Ethiopians. I hope you are learning and enjoying the current news in Gondar 🙂

        1. sentek, we are glad you are safe in your western home …
          … Thanks for the updates … we were “waiting” for you 🙂
          I would appreciate what your take is on the current crisis in Gondar against Woyane “police”

        2. የትግራይ ታጣቂዎች ጎንደርን ሲወሩ ምንም ተቃውሞ ያላሳየ፡ የትግራይ ታጣቂ ሰላማዊ ሰዎችን ሲጨፈጭፍ ጆሮውን የደፈነ፤ የትግሬ ንብረት ያውም ጎንደር ውስጥ ተቃጠለ ብሎ መንጫጫት፤ ምን እንደሚባል አይገባኝም፡ ድንጋይ ልብ ሁሉ

    2. It is a matter of revenge through proxy war and the worst thing here in this web site is the racist language and superiority complex which discloses why these folks support the dictatorial regime in Eritrea.

  22. The US is ready to take its support off of the ruling TPLF and reconcile with other Ethiopian Potentials by working with Eritrea. Time has come for the US administration to change their tactics.
    Massive political changes we will observe in the next few months.
    Awet Nihafash!!!!!!!!!!
