Since the outbreak of the popular protest last November, the regime in Addis Abeba has let loose a campaign of terror against the people, killing thousands, declaring a state of emergency, rounding up more than 40,000 people (to add to the thousands others that it had incarcerated since 1991) and using its special terror forces against the people. In the last three weeks alone, many youngsters have been picked up in daily and nocturnal raids in Addi Abeba, Gondar, Bahr Dar, Dangla and other places.
