University professors in Gondar, Dessie, Debremarkos, Debretabor and other areas denounce the handling of human rights by the regime in the country and the killing of hundreds of youth in the last two years in protests in various parts of the country.
At a meeting with officials of the regime, the professors also said the economic development narrative and double digit growth propaganda by the regime does not square with the reality of life and hardship they are facing.
The professors said the lives of so many youth were cut short by the brutal actions of the regime’s security forces as the time has been one of the most perilous for the youth in the history of the nation.
They have also pointed out that the defence, economy and political power in the nation is controlled by few members of the ethnic oligarchy who do not care about the rest of the nation.
