Rather than lie to each other, it is better to fight it out.~Ermias Legesse, Ethiopia’s exiled EPRDF Minister August 30, 2014 (Oromo Press) — The announcement of the implementation of the Addis Ababa Master Plan (AAMP) was just an extension of an attempt by EPRDF government at legalizing its plans of ridding the Oromo people from in and around Finfinne by grabbing Oromo land for its party leaders and real estate developers from the Tigrean community.

The world’s governments first pledged to end extreme poverty during the World Food Summit in Rome in 1996.
They committed to reducing the number of undernourished people by half before 2015, which, given the population at the time, meant slashing the poverty headcount by 836 million.
