Hundreds of Ethiopians who took part in the 2011 Great Ethiopian Run in Addis Ababa two weeks ago Sunday turned the annual event into a protest rally against Meles Zenawi’s dictatorship as the video below shows. The Federal Police arrested over 50 of the runners and released 27 by Friday. Their crime is peacefully voicing their opinion. The fate of those who are still in detention is not known. The runners chanted:
Woyanne Leba, Leba Leba, Woyanne Leba, Leba, Leba (Woyanne thief)
Ende Gaddafi Aykeriletim Tifi (He [Meles] will be slapped like Gaddafi)
Sanifeligachew 20 ametachew (They stayed 20 years without our wish)
The video was smuggled out of the country by Ethiopian Review Intelligence Unit.
