There are 2 comments on the Weyburn Review story from Feb 2, 2012, titled In Ethiopia: Too many people, too little land and a changing climate. In it, Weyburn Review reports that:

The highway southwest of Addis Ababa to Wolayto-Soddo is wide and smooth, but there is no such thing in Ethiopia as setting the cruise control and just cruising, as one would expect to do on the wide open Canadian Prairies.

The repugnancy of the neo-colonial regime of ethnic federalism continues to deny Ethiopians at home and abroad of their nationality and land rights enunciated in Ethiopia's Constitutional Monarchy, the only law abiding constitution for Our nation which upholds the fundamental liberties and freedom of Our peoples which is to be protected through the Charter of the United Nations, enabling Ethiopians to rise and take all measures possible at home and abroad to eliminate the neo-colonial forces of alien interests, exploitation and lawlessness from our Great Nation.
The alien imposed federation of secession in Ethiopia, will claim that Ethiopians are not being evicted from their rural dwellings by force but voluntarily, yet the Ethiopians who are being evicted from their land by the alien puppets of lawlessness, are subject to threats and intimidation at gunpoint leaving them with the option of torture and imprisonment, slave labour to the neo-colonial investors for wages below the poverty threshold or so-called voluntary villagization?
We urge all donors of the illegitimate regime to cease any economic assistance to that criminal group which is constantly denying indigenous Ethiopians their land rights, fundamental liberties and freedoms under the United Nations universal declaration of human rights. This colonial type exploitation has contributed to the hyperinflation on essential food items as demand has outstripped supply causing many Ethiopians to go to bed hungry. Outsiders who are the wealthy financial backers of the alien imposed federation continue to turn a blind eye to this neo-colonial exploitation, for they themselves are reaping the benefits of stolen gold and commodity exports from stolen lands whilst trying to make themselves look good by providing the regime with annual political repressive food handouts which are far less valuable and nutritional as those crops produced on Ethiopian soil. The bulk of the agricultural produce is being exported away from the farmer, as the regime continues to deny the farmer his right to land and his crops which he helped produce through his own sweat and labour. Although there is a positive future to come out of this neo-colonial sufferage, that is that the neo-colonial regime will become more hated amongst Ethiopians, and Ethiopians will rise to reclaim land which is rightfully theirs, disregarding all the phony laws of ethnic federalism to the point of evicting the alien puppets from office.

"The fundamental obstacle to the realisation of the full measure of Ethiopia's agricultural potential has been, simply stated lack of security in the land. The fruits of the farmer's labour must be enjoyed by him whose toil has produced the crop." Selected speeches of HIM Negus Haile Selassie I, pages 492-3

"The aim of those leaders that is based on ambition for power and personal gain is one with no firm foundation and will, consequently, crumble easily." Selected Speeches of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, page 471

"The longevity and tenacity of a building can be judged by its foundation." Selected Speeches of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, page 495

"Every structure must be built on a solid foundation, for those constructed otherwise would soon collapse. The proclamation by which We made land grants to the entire Ethiopian people is the foundation of this scheme." Selected Speeches of HIM Haile Selassie I, page 487

"Man can only begin an enterprise it is for God to dispose of it to a good end." HIM Negus Haile Selassie I

Long Live the Constitutional Monarchy!
Long Live the African Unity!
Long Live the Charter of the United Nations!
Fire burn down the satanic star of secsession
Beka! Tinsae Moa Anbessa!
Gasha for Ethiopians!
Long Live Ethio-Eritean oneness!
The Lion of Judah shall crush every yoke of oppression and set the captives free!
