An Ethiopian expatriate has pledged to help stop the political killings and disappearances in his home country.
Ali Saeed, who moved to Winnipeg, Canada, as a political refugee in 1984, is organising an awareness evening to raise money for Amnesty International and the Solidarity Committee for Ethiopian Political Prisoners.
The idea for the fundraising evening came after Mr Saeed listened to a radio programme on which an Ethiopian officer who worked during the Red Terror campaign denied the military programme under which thousands of people were imprisoned, tortured or disappeared.
"As soon as I heard the voice, not only me, but everybody was shaking and getting mad, and I couldn’t sleep the whole night," Mr Saeed told the Winnipeg Free Press.
The expatriate was jailed and tortured more than 25 years ago for his efforts to promote freedom of speech, and at least 65 of his friends and family have suffered the same fate.
"If I quit struggling it will kill me because I am breaking the promise to the comrades who went before me and died that we would fight until our people become free," the expat told the newspaper.
The Night of the Disappeared will be held at the West End Cultural Centre on June 20th, and Mr Saeed hopes many of the 5,000 Ethiopian expats living in the area will lend their support.
