Abebe Gellaw and Dr. Berhanu Nega was on Al Jazeera “The Stream” program. Today’s (June 26, 2012) AL Jazeera “The Stream” program focused on Ethiopia and free speech:
“Is free speech being silenced in Ethiopia through telecom and anti-terrorism laws?”
Abebe Gellaw wrote on his Facebook status:
Dr. Berhanu Nega and I appeared live on Al Jazeera yesterday.
“I have told Al Jazeera that Meles Zenawi’s rightful place is not a G8 summit, but the International Criminal Court (ICC). The world now knows that Meles Zenawi is actually the real terrorist.”
“As you know, the soon-dying dictator recently banned using skype on the Internet in Ethiopia. Meles Zenawi has passed a law recently that says anyone found using skype will be punished with 15 years in prison. And this has created an uproar all over the world. It has been the talk of international press and human rights organizations.
“Dr. Berhanu Nega and Journalist Abebe Gellaw exposed this dictatorial measure of Meles Zenawi on Aljazeera. By the way, Abebe Gellaw’s historic action on May 18, 2012 against Zenawi was also shown during the interview. This interview on Aljazeera is a very critical achievement for the opposition in getting international media coverage to expose this dying dictator’s totalitarian rule in Ethiopia.
