TPLF: Tigray People's Liberation Front.

The world should know that TPLF in any other ethnically diverse African country is not only ILLEGAL but constitutionally BANNED, yet TPLF has ruled Ethiopia for 3 decades.

Here are some countries where TPLF would be banned:

Democratic Republic of Congo
Cote d'Ivorie
Equatorial Guinea
Sierra Leone

Ever wonder why Tigray refugees are heading for Sudan? Why not go to other regions of Ethiopia?

Because they honestly believe that the ENDF has come to kill them... while TPLF heroically defends them.

TPLF propaganda is sending Tegarus into needless exile.
"they will kill us,” said an old woman, referring to government troops [Al Jazeera]…
"If we go to Gonder, they will slaughter us."…

It's very troubling how adamant we are about holding on to politically revised history that is not true.

The following thread is for those who don't fear being exposed to the truth about the real Amhara.

Together with Hiob Ludolf we will count the Kingdoms of Ethiopia.
Hiob Ludolf, a German historian and one of the leading authorities on Ethiopian history.

These are the accounts of the Kingdoms and their provinces he counted in the 17th century.
001- The first listed is Amhara. He notes that Amhara is at the center of Habessinia, it borders Gonder(Begemder) to the north, the Nile and Gojam on the west, south with Walake and East with Angota. That is the historical and scientific location documented by those where there.

Amhara vs Galla: A short story on the origins of hate.

While it is customary to associate Amhara and Galla to tribes, a lack of historical context has allowed for politics to hijack religious animosity and convert it into ethnic currency.
The two major players that birthed the Amhara/Galla animosity are the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and Ahmad ibn Ibrahim al-Ghazi, other wise known as Gragn Mohammed. In the early 1531 Gragn began an incredible invasion of Ethiopia.
Unfortunately most Ethiopians are unaware of how devastating the invasion was. Ethiopia all but extinguished. In fact, it was nothing short of a miracle how Ethiopia survived. The destruction Gragn laid on Ethiopia was such a blow that it crippled Ethiopia for centuries to come.

Its time to put TPLF and Ethnic-Federalist on the wall and demand answers:

Where is Shoa(Shewa)?

They dissolved Shoa to make the "Oromo State". A nation that has been anointing its own kings for CENTURIES... gone. Destroyed to make way for an "Ethnic" state based on language.
They could have made a proper federation out of all the Kingdoms of Ethiopia, why didn't they? Why choose language as a border marker? Why wipe out a thousand year history? Where is Begemeder(Gonder), why was it crushed to make the "new Amhara" state molded by "language"?
Where is Gojjam, she anointed her kings for centuries and now instead of being a federal state, squashed into the "Amhara" state. If the case is being made that Ethnic-Federalism was chosen to "preserve our history", then, by the Holy Lord, kingdoms not language is our grouping!

Is Addis Ababa's growth the victim of a political agenda?

You decide.

(lines are drawn in approximation)

This is Adama 36 year growth from '84 till 2020. No political unrest because of growth.
This is Bishoftu and Dukem growth from '86 to 2020. Dukem went from not visible on the map to merging with Bishoftu. Please note, no political unrest because of growth.
This is the 18 year growth of Jimma, from 2002 to 2020. Remember all the marches for the farmers of Jimma? There was none.

The idolization and obsession with Menelik is purely political in nature and only serves to meet the political needs of certain political parties, looking only at Menelik to understand what shaped Ethiopia is to make mockery of the rest of Oromo's history.
Whether willfully or out of naive ignorance you remove from the Oromos their true history. You fail to tell them that Iyoas I in 1755 was crowned King of Kings. You fail to tell them that his mother was Oromo, Welete Bersabe. Or how Iyoas I spoke Oromo as emperor of Ethiopia
and made it the court language. You fail to mention how Mentewab, his grandmother, gathered an army, while Wubit gathered an army from her Oromo relatives because the two women were going to "work out" their issues? Is this not the history of the Oromo people that shaped their
