  • Ethiopian PM Blames Olympic Protest on U.S.-Based Dissenters

    When Ethiopian marathoner Feyisa Lilesa held his arms in an “X” as he crossed the finish line for a silver medal last month at the Rio Olympics, he says he was culminating a political protest he’d planned for months. But top Ethiopian officials say he was put up to the stunt by U.S.-based opposition groups in order to protest the government’s crackdown on demonstrations and further fuel controversial secessionist movements at home and in neighboring Eritrea.

    Speaking to Foreign Policy in an exclusive interview from the living room of his suite at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel on Tuesday, Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn said he strongly believes that groups of anti-government Ethiopians based in the United States convinced the athlete to use the Summer Games as a protest venue. He also figures they helped get him from a Rio hotel to Washington, D.C. in time for a televised press conference last week.

    “It’s me who sent him to Rio for the Olympics, and we expected him to come back after winning the medal,” Hailemariam said, specifically naming members of the Oromo Liberation Front as having likely contributed to Feyisa’s protest. 

    “This is not the capacity of the man himself. It’s something which has been orchestrated by someone else from outside.”

    The OLF did not respond to multiple requests for comment. Feyisa could not be reached for comment, but he told the Washington Post earlier this month that Oromo sympathizers helped him with his U.S. visa application.

  • Ethiopian-Israelis seek US intervention against Ethiopian government


    Over 250 Israelis of Ethiopian decent gathered in front of the US embassy on Monday in hopes of urging the US government to stop supporting the Ethiopian government, which they contend is oppressive and anti-democratic.

    “The United States must condemn the murders of Ethiopian citizens,” protestor Endalamaw Hailei told the Post, “I joined because I care about Ethiopia.


    Anti-government protests in the Oromira and Amhara regions of Ethiopia began in November 2015. A June Human Rights Watch Report stated that over 400 Ethiopians have been killed in clashes with the government, while this August 97 protesters died in clashes according to Amnesty International.

    Israel’s Ethiopian community numbers some 140,000 many of whom still have family in Ethiopia.

    According to protestors, the decision to picket the US Embassy and not the Ethiopian Embassy is because they believe that only the US government can influence Ethiopian government.

    Avraham, who declined to state his last name, has a sister and three nephews in Ethiopia. “We are here to influence the US government to stop the oppression in Ethiopia. People are dying over nothing,” he said, “I worry about my family there all the time.”
