Why violence against migrant workers in Saudi Arabia?

By Lamessa Hata’u In the recent years the news of sorrow either suicides, killings, beatings or violence and other inhumane treatments have been the everyday breaking from the Gulf States in general and Saudi Arabia in particular.

Political commentators and many social media users comment differently on this, while some blame Ethiopian government for not taking action others blame Saudi government for violation of rights of migrant workers; human traffickers are also blamed for facilitating and promoting illegal migration; still … Continue reading Why violence against migrant workers in Saudi Arabia?

The Gloomy Affairs of Ethiopian Migrants and the Social Media Pseudo Sympathizers

Scholars have said a lot about migration. Especially the now growing migration from developing to developed countries is always the source of heightened debate, some arguing for while others against. But today the point I would like to raise is not about the pros and cons of migration rather it is about the real suffering that Ethiopian migrants are facing in the Arab world and the reactions that followed. It’s not new and never the first for Ethiopian to suffer at the receiving country, but this month of November seems to be painted a bleak picture for Ethiopian migrants who … Continue reading The Gloomy Affairs of Ethiopian Migrants and the Social Media Pseudo Sympathizers

But despite this fact I will keep on using this term for I feel and see that almost all Ethiopians are expressing their condolence in unusual way. Speaking ingenuously, from … Continue reading The Visionary Who Left His Vision Alive
