|ADWA VICTORY: Threatened To Be Celebrated In Ethiopia Today by ednited(f): 9:29am On Mar 02, 2023
Today March 02, marks the 127th victory of Adwa where Ethiopians celebrate their win against Italian armies. This day is seen as a victory to the entire black community and any of those targeted for colonialism. Emperor Menelik and Empress Tayitu along with brave patriots as Ras Alula Aba Nega and Dejazmach Balcha Safo fought the Italians with passion to protect Ethiopia from colonialism. This day was celebrated in Addis Ababa near the statue of Emperor Menelik but today, the Ethiopian government chose to occupy the area with armed forces to prevent the celebration of the victory.
Clothes or any objects with green, yellow and red colors of Ethiopian flag were not allowed to be sold. Sellers of these were held in jail while some were even beaten up. Addis Ababa youths that were capable of celebrating the day with the people were also arrested for no reason.
TV stations are warned to not mention the name of the Emperor and Empress for the victory
