This has to be the biggest joke for a documentary. The jouranalist that was being interviewed said the Amhara was not happy, the Oromo was not happy, the Somali was not happy. CCTVnews summarizes that as "minorities were unhappy."

CCTv might want to hire a more competent journalist. And one who is not beholden to a dead corpse for a tyrant. But then this is China I guess..

The question here is : Are we addressing Ethnic (minority) rights properly without a hype on Ethnicism as opposed to Nationalism or not?It was a proper move to recognise diversity and address it earlier than delaying it.You can't deny people of their identity and build a country there after! Look at Sudan and the Bask and Catalan people of Spain! Sooner or later such issues will haunt future generations if not addressed early!

"Minority right" does not mean a totalitarian ethnocracy. And Ethiopia today is by all accounts a totalitarian state which would put even North Korea by the sophistication of its repression. Only difference is the West looks away.

Ethiopia problems are created by Abyssinian (Amhara and Tigary ethnic groups). Peace and development in Ogaden is key and fundamental for stable Horn of Africa and Horn of Africa withouth conflicts and drought disasters. So, Ethiopians should think about these issue, otherwise Ethiopia will be North Korea of Africa.
