Ethiopians for Hedasse
Tigrai Online, September, 03, 2013
Patriotic Ethiopians from all walks of life and political views residing in and around Gothenburg city in Sweden launched a triumphant fund raising event for the building of the Grand Renaissance Dam last Saturday and Sunday (31/08 – 1/09/ 2013). The event that was held under the banner ‘’Patriotism is supporting your country all the time…’’ highlighted on the realization of the Grand Renaissance Dam and concluded with the purchase and donation of a considerable amount of bonds.
Representative of the Ethiopian embassy briefed the gathering on the overall effort of the ongoing developments in Ethiopia and the building of the Grand Renaissance Dam, while the participants actively took part in a very peaceful and civilized manner. In the event, the participant expressed their desire and determination to play their due role in supporting the tremendous progress the country has made so far as well as the construction of the Hedasse dam that will turn Ethiopia to be the powerhouse of the region.
In the occasion, a handful of extremist elements and members of the terrorist groups known as G7, OLF, and Wuhabist fanatics attempt their best to play their usual myopic and ‘chicken politics’, but the public took the necessary legal measures and manage to throw the extremist out of the gathering hall. For their surprise, the public managed to lock the extremists inside the hall and the police proved them illegal, thus order them to ‘’leave or face the legal consequence’’, no third option. They had no choice but to leave with a high degree of humiliation and irreparable psychological losses. We hope this offers a lesson for all patriot Ethiopians and the losers.
Finally, the participants vowed to redouble the support of the development effort, but also raised their concerns on the soft stance of the Ethiopian embassies, and the government at large, for not taking appropriate and corrective measures against these frustrated and anti-Ethiopia elements. Thus, they urged to take all the necessary legal measures. We hope the government will listen to the serious concern of its diaspora communities.
