What is the reason for the riots in Ethiopia against the Nobel Peace Prize laureate

32
An amazing event in its tragic absurdity occurred in Ethiopia. Moreover, the absurdity is not so much in the event itself as in the series of events that began with the presentation of the Nobel Peace Prize 2019 of the year to a man named Abiy Ahmed Ali. This is the head of Ethiopia’s government who won the prize for “the productive negotiations with Eritrea that brought the two countries to peace.”


What is the reason for the riots in Ethiopia against the Nobel Peace Prize laureate


In Ethiopia, among a considerable number of local residents, the award of Ahmed Ali provoked outrage. Many consider him one of the culprits of the loss of territories.

Activist Jawar Mohammed accused Ahmed Ali of usurping power, surrendering national interests and the fact that the prime minister does not listen to the will of the people. People began to take to the streets of Ethiopian cities.

As a result, clashes broke out between opponents and supporters of Ahmed Ali, clashes with the police, which eventually grew into a real massacre. On the streets there are crowds of people with sticks and stones, metal bars.

But what is the cause of unrest in reality? Is it because Prime Minister Ahmed Ali met with Russian President Vladimir Putin a few days ago and signed an agreement on Ethiopian-Russian energy cooperation? Perhaps this event prompted (not without external assistance) the “activists" to express a mass protest against the prime minister. After all, in a strange way, there were no such mass and bloody riots against Abiy Ahmed Ali until recently.

At present, as a result of clashes between opponents of Ahmed Ali with the police and his supporters in Ethiopia, 68 people have died and more than a hundred have been injured. Army units were introduced in seven cities of the country.

    Well, it’s not otherwise that Americans muddied the water. Trump was offended crying they didn’t give a peace prize, but he hoped so much, he even encouraged the Japanese to nominate him laughing

        Austin Chamberlain (for supporting the civil war in Russia), Andrei Sakharov (for throwing mud at the USSR), Mikhail Gorbachev (for the collapse of the USSR), Jimmy Carter (for organizing and financing terrorism in Afghanistan), Barack Obama (for organizing the bloodiest wars after 2 World War and support for terrorism), the UN (for inaction), the IAEA (for spying on the United States), the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (for helping to "find" the use of chemical weapons where needed).
        What wonderful company did Abiy Ahmed Ali end up in? what

    It may not be connected, but the crowd is always someone controls. Every herd has a shepherd. Although the rams probably would not have agreed with this, they are sure that they themselves went for a walk and go wherever their heart tells them, to chew tasty grass and to warm the sunshine in the sun.

    But what is the real disorder related to? Is it because Prime Minister Ahmed Ali a few days ago met with Russian President Vladimir Putin and signed an agreement on Ethiopian-Russian cooperation in the field of energy? Perhaps it was this event that prompted (not without external help) the "activists" to express such a massive protest against the prime minister. After all, in a strange way, there were no such mass and bloody riots against Abiy Ahmed Ali until recently.
    Not an Africanist among you, sir incognito. There were riots, but the world press simply did not widely publicize. And the reasons for the riots are much deeper than political reasons. They have a connotation of an archmental order. From a historical point of view, "young" religions have all been ill with this infection. It is possible to successfully manage the masses not only from the Washington regional committee, all of a sudden))).

      I read and watched that many Christian artifacts and shrines were found in Ethiopia (Axum). Temples in the shape of a regular cross carved in rock. There are also pagan Arabic monuments, such as temples of the God of the Moon Almakah. I do not quite understand your comment, dear Stormbreaker. Your opinion is interesting.

      Across the throat, all this boozer! The analogy with the "brothers" is visible to the naked eye. We wrote off billions of dollars in debts, we will raise their economy, drive weapons on credit, and after the next flood everything will happen again. Who, that is, the difference what they will be called? Ethiopia, Central African Republic and others. We have no one to help us ?! USSR 2.0 pancake ...

    After the Gorbi gave the Nobel Peace Prize, it became clear that this prize can be obtained for betraying your country.
    It seems that Ethiopia has its own Mikhail Sergeyevich.

      I agree. Entirely and completely. The Nobel Peace Prize in my eyes fell below the plinth. What can I say here, even if Obama was given a memorable one with his hands to his elbow in blood ..

            I remember that at Nobel, too, not one factory tried to enter orbit ... The cunning was pit - he didn’t really go around his factories, so he lived to see the organization of the award)))

        The Nobel Prize is a political tool, and from the very beginning, used by the West.

    The Nobel Prize is very often associated even with war. Remember the Abama Nobel Prize for the war in the Balkans, the defeat of Libya, Iraq.

    The Nobel Committee screwed up again ... But about the motive of Buza, as for meeting with Putin, you are not waving it there. First, Putin met with all African delegations - 53 out of 64 countries! Secondly, in Africa as a whole, trade with the United States is about 3%, and with the EU - about 40 ... If anyone is hurt, then the EU, and the United States has long been kicked out of Africa wink

    The Nobel Peace Prize Committee has long ago completely discredited both itself and the prize itself, appointing it systematically not for merit, but solely with a political motive. The riots in Ethiopia have nothing to do with the meeting in Russia, because Ethiopia is full of its own problems, and, unfortunately, revolutions have become a political trend and, of course, cannot do without outside interference.

    Dear Dimitri, Diman! I slaughtered the comment with a specialist = limited .... my comment in the previous topics. This is My explosion about the "lemon" lying in the pocket of every Soviet person. And about the historical part of the epilogy --- my opinion is as follows. There is a material and Yes, I'm boring boring, but what would you like to rely on in historical archeology?

      I have visited Ethiopia. Most of all, the genotype of "real" Ethiopians is striking - they are very proportionally folded, - with regular, thin facial features (without huge flattened noses, low brow ridges, etc. inherent in Africans), brown skin. And it is also interesting in their churches, on their icons most of the saints we are used to are black.
