Oromia, March 21, 2006 - Since its ascension to power the Wayane (TPLF/EPRDF) regime has been terrorizing the peoples under its brutal rule by murdering, torturing and imprisoning. The regime demonstrated, beyond any reasonable doubt, that it is willing and capable of committing heinous atrocities in order to fulfill its infamous ambitions. Its track record clearly shows that its atrocity never spares even the people it claims to represent. A vivid reminder of the latter is the regime's role in the brutal bombing of the Hawzen town in the heartland of its support base, the Tigray region. If they can commit a crime of such magnitude against their own people, no doubt, they can do worse to other peoples who are battling the regime for survival.
