Ethiopians Mourn Libya Killings As Rally Scuffles Erupt

People participate in a rally to mark the start of a three-day national moaning period at Meskel Square, for the 30 Ethiopian victims killed by Islamic State militants in Libya, in capital the Addis Ababa

Demonstrators hurled stones and police fired teargas as emotions ran high at a mass rally in Ethiopia’s capital on Wednesday commemorating 30 compatriots shot and beheaded by Islamic State militants in Libya, witnesses said. Reuters was there:

Protesters started gathering at Addis Ababa’s Meskel Square at dawn to denounce Islamic State. “We will not bow down to terrorism!” one placard carried by a young boy said. Another read: “The world must be united against terrorism.”

One man at the government-organized rally, who said he was a university professor, said many in the crowd were angry that jobless Ethiopians still felt they had to travel to places like Libya in the hope of crossing over to a better life in Europe.

He also accused the authorities of clamping down on free speech. “Even the chanting (at the rally) was led by the government,” he said. “We do not have the power to speak.” Ethiopia’s government dismisses accusations from rights groups that it stifles critics and opponents.

The rally was called to show solidarity with families of those killed and to mark the start of three days of national morning. Scuffles erupted moments after Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn spoke.

  • I stand in solidarity with the people of etiopia who lost there loved ones in these senseless hate crimes against christians, jews and against humanity in lybia and around the world by these senseless devil incarnate muslims. I enjoin all christians to take heart and be encouraged in our lord and saviour Jesus Christ. There is a reward for all christians and there is hope for all of us according to the scriptures of truth. As you believe that Jesus is the truth and only way to eternal life, hold on to what you believe as we are certain that this is a proven fact. Only a short while and Jesus will appear in the sky to receive us in the new Jerusalem. To all of you who think your loved once have been killed by isis, don’t believe that they are not dead. They are resting in the lord in paradise. Please read revelations 6:9. Let use this wonderful opportunity to share what the lord showed me. On 27 of september, 2009. A vision came to me in my night sleep. I was walking by one of our streets in abuja and it was on friday the muslims just finished there friday prayer and as I was going, ther were many of them everywhere I go to the extent that I became partialy afraid and partily jealous of them. But it was a vision. I was afraid because it seems as though they were preparing for an imminent war, a great war. I started running and as I was walking faster, a fighter jet flew so low above my head. On that jet fighter was written iranabia. In a few moments, another fighter jet flew above me and on it was written “ameridian” in a few munites, the whole sky was full of fighters jets and ther was war and I was scared. As I was running, there seems to be a calm and the jets which I once saw were no more except the one which was written ameridian has transformed into a ship and landed on a great ocean but it mentained its color and the inscription “ameridian”. At this time there were no more fighter jets. The sky which was filled with atmosphere of war is now calm, peaceful and bright. I soon discovered there are living creatures up in the sky they were many they filled the sky. Just as the sky became peaceful, so did my heart became peaceful and joyful but I still a little bit anxious because I don’t know what was going on. But I fix my eyes onto the sky because this creatures look beautiful but strange. They were holding different kinds of instruments both musical and agricultural instruments. This instruments were made of pure gold and there reflections littered the sky. I behold as some of these living creatures were smilling at me. As I they smill, my heart was filled with joy. After a few minutes, I saw shapes in a bright form pumbing from the ground with the speed of misile up to the sky to join the living creatures were there. I was running and watching everthing untill my by body now lifted up. So, as I was running, I was literarilly running upwards untill I woke up. Please as you read this message. Don’t think I make it up. This is a real vision I received from God. I have a lot to share especially to christians and jews as they are the ones who understands what visions is all about and also understands we are living in last days. I have a lot to share. If you don’t believe in heaven and hell or life after death please think twice because wether you believe it or not this things are the truth. If you have not seen the president of russia does not mean he does not exist. If you have any question concernig this message, or you want to know more about me and eternal life please add me on my facebook page- facebook@ vincent olaka.
