Remembering the Meles Massacres of 2005 in Ethiopia Ten Years After

 November 18, 2015

Ethiopian martyrs of June and November, 2005
We remember the Ethiopian
martyrs of June and 
November, 2005
In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future.
When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.
It is for this reason, and not because of the ”weakness of indoctrinational work’, that they are growing up ‘indifferent.’
Young people are acquiring the conviction that foul deeds are never punished on earth, that they always bring prosperity.
It is going to be uncomfortable, horrible, to live in such a country! Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn,   The Gulag Archipelago, 1918-1956
