Ethiopians in the Washington DC area held a vigil

December 30th, 2005

Dec 30, 2005 – The 48-hour vigil that started yesterday has ended today after State Department officials left early for the New Year holiday. The participation was greater than anticipated by the organizers.

The purpose of the vigil was to show support to the brave Ethiopians at home who are fighting for their freedom against the U.S.-backed regime of Meles Zenawi, and to also appeal to the U.S. Government to stop supporting the fascist regime. There will be more vigils like this in the coming few days.
