The Killer Meles Zenawi Who Ordered the Massacre of Peaceful Demonstrators is to Speak to the World Leaders

The tyrant is expected to arrive in New York on Tuesday, September 12 and would most probably make his speech in front of world leaders on Thursday, September 14, 2006.
The dictator Meles acknowledged on the BBC (please watch the historical interview) that he ordered the killing. Peace loving Ethiopians appeal to everybody to denounce this shameless individual who gets pleasure from the suffering of Ethiopians and to campaign for the release of the elected opposition MPs and leaders who are “charged with treason”.

Abune Paulos -the Meles Government is the most democratic one Ethiopia ever had in its history…No Mention about the massacre by Meles regime.

What do you see as the role of the church in the political life of Ethiopia?
Ethiopia has known various forms of government in its long history, but no democratic government existed before it was introduced 15 years ago. To enjoy democracy, all the people need to understand not only their rights, but also their responsibilities. This period has not been easy, and there have been misunderstandings and conflicts.
I appeal to all people to learn to tolerate what they disagree with, and I ask people to show patience. But I believe that Ethiopia is beginning to make progress and I am hopeful that differences will not prevent people from working together.
