So much for the “Ethiopia rising” meme which Ethiopian authorities ostentatiously promote to camouflage the repressive nature of the state. A new report published by Human Rights Watch on the Oromo protests depicts a disturbing picture of a government that thrives on systematic repression and official violence.

This is exactly what apartheid white minority use of “anti-terrorism law” to terrorize black South Africans. The first indisputable fact is the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) is itself a certified terrorist organization officially listed in the Global Terrorism Database.

How can a certified terrorist organization use “anti-terrorism law” to go after others it calls “terrorists”? (That is the million dollar question!)
