Change comes from struggle. We shows the struggle towards the violated rights and freedoms by others body. By Behailu M.
Your Excellency Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn,
I am writing this letter (see the attachment) to your government, on behalf of the Ethiopian peoples, to take an important stage in deepening of reforms to further democratization and modernization of the country.
In Ethiopia, democracy must be embedded in political system built on the rule of law and respect for human right.The government is responsible to promote the culture of democracy based on tolerance, acceptance of differences and permanent search for compromise, was seen as an essential factor for the consolidation of the countries democracy.
However, the currently ruling government (EPRDF) is recognized as playing an important role in miscarriages of justice as a result there was a high level of distrust and dissatisfaction felt toward the ruling government by the general population.
There is a big political freedom repression on the Ethiopian peoples who participate and struggle without fair exercise political spaces and without independent media to challenge the Ideology of the ruling government.
Ethiopian, millions of them are unable to speak freely, organize political activities challenges government policies either peaceful political protest or publicizing their political views without fear and reappraisal.
We, Ethiopians do not need more to leave with this kind of political repression like imprisonment and intimidation of peoples who are against of the governments, restriction and interference with peaceful opposition party activities, and restriction of political space in the lead-up to democratic country ideology using anti-terrorism legislation. We do not need the restrictions on civil society, media, opposition parties, and independent voices and views. Improved right and freedom and more open democratic political environment is the willpower of Ethiopian people.
In light of these serious concerns, I am writing to urge your government to demonstrate its commitment to facilitate the immediate solution including the mentioned point in this letter (See the attachment) and to comply the policy with the regional and international policy standards.
We have a long road to full democracy and hope the political system matures in a way that provides real choices for the Ethiopian peoples which lead all of us to witness the democratic change of government in the country’s history, and the suggested points in the letter would be a step forward.
I appreciate your prompt consideration of those concerns mentioned in this letter(see the attachment) and hope your government hears my voice and follow my recommendations.
Our values, our interests and our leadership all over the world are at stake. The world is watching you. Now is the time to make the right decision, not the politically expedient decision.
