The Mengistu memorial in Addis Ababa:
Hardly given any attention by most people today; the Derg, Common Derg or Dergue (meaning “committee” or “council” in Ge’ez) is the short name of the Coordinating Committee of the Armed Forces, Police, and Territorial Army that ruled Ethiopia from 1974 to 1987. The Derg took power following the ousting of Emperor Haile Selassie I (Probably killing the last of the Solomonic kings). Soon after it was established, the committee was formally renamed the Provisional Military Administrative Council, but continued to be known popularly as “The Derg”. In 1975, it embraced communism as an ideology; it remained in power until 1987. Between 1975 and 1987, the Derg executed and imprisoned tens of thousands of its opponents without trial.
In 1987 Mengistu Haile Mariam abolished the Derg, establishing the People’s Democratic Republic of Ethiopia. After years of warfare by a coalition of ethnic-based parties, Mengistu was overthrown in 1991 and exiled in Zimbabwe. #ethiopia #addisabab #war #InstaSize #military #past #history #instacool #instagood #rasta #revolution #theiamweblog #politics #photooftheday #student #freedom #me #love #motherland #culture  (at Addis Ababa, Ethiopia)

"It has always been my dream to venture back to Africa and learn more about my heritage. Living and teaching in Ethiopia for two years gave me the chance to serve as an ambassador for the Diaspora. Being here taught me that Africans born at home and those of the Diaspora will be in destitute as long as we are devoid of each other. Inspired by the spirit of a nation, I become a zealous advocate for the ascension and amelioration of both groups. I believe that if Ethiopia remains mentally free, inspired and self-empowered this nation could become a leading force in Africa’s and possibly the world’s future. The Ethiopian Spelling Bee is here to rigorously support our people in actualizing these dreams."
