Tigrai Online, July 20, 2018
It became a mode of operand to spread false news for this newly created ethnocentric demagoguery YouTube media called Voice of Amhara, Ethio Media Forum and Tena adam internet radio. Your forum should not be a conduit to hate mongers to spew hate and propaganda. With no evidence what amounted to smear campaign faceless and fast-moving assault on the integrity of SebHidri members and organization. Sebhidri was born out of the heroic concern of Tigreans; our name should not be teetered by cyber foot soldiers to trash smear campaign.

We shouldn’t accept manipulation and division among us. SebHidri would not succumb an inch to ethnocentric the likes Voice of Amhara false News and character assassination. Let us all move forward together to create an atmosphere that would promote the right of all Ethiopians respect and tolerance irrespective of our political inclinations and ethnic origin.
