70 Ethiopian doctors meet with Woyanne agent in DC

Some 70 Ethiopian and Eritrean physicians who work and reside in the United States held a meeting with Woyanne agent Girma Birru in Old Town Alexandria Hilton Hotel near Washington DC over the weekend.

Tesfaye Demissie FantaThe meeting was organized by Meles Zenawi’s physician and investor Dr Mulai Teklu Yohannes and Dr Tesfaye Demmisie Fanta of North Carolina.

The purpose of the meeting was to raise funds for building a referral hospital in Addis Ababa. Girma Birru asked the physicians to contribute $30,000 each for the project. He also asked them to buy bond for the fake Nile Dam Project.

Many of the physicians who attended the Woyanne meeting are residing in the U.S. as political refugees, and yet they attend a fund raising party that is organized by the same regime they fled from.

The physicians also must have failed to understand that the Woyanne junta has no intention of building a hospital. The existing hospitals in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa, such as Tikur Anbessa, are so dilapidated and neglected that patients go there to die. Addis Ababa’s biggest hospitals look like morgues. But Woyanne has enough money to spend over $100 million for buying tanks.

The main reason that the 70 doctors who met with Girma Birru have sought asylum in the U.S. is because they were unable to live freely and make a living in their own country. So if these physicians are genuine about helping their people back home, they need to speak out against the injustice in Ethiopia. If they are not willing to do that, the least they can do is not give money to the genocidal Woyanne junta.
