  • Police fire teargas, warning shots at Ethiopia protest

    Police in Ethiopia's Oromiya region fired teargas and warning shots on Sunday to disperse anti-government protesters at a religious festival, triggering a stampede that caused several casualties, witnesses said.

    Sporadic protests have erupted in Oromiya in the last two years, initially sparked by a land row and increasingly turning more broadly against the government. Since late 2015, scores of protesters have been killed in clashes with police.

    Thousands of people gathered for the annual Irreecha festival in the town of Bishoftu, around 40 km south of the capital Addis Ababa.

    Crowds chanted "we need freedom" and "we need justice", preventing community elders, deemed close to the government, from delivering their speeches at the festival.

    When police fired teargas and guns into the air, crowds fled and created a stampede, some of them falling into a deep ditch nearby in the rush of people. Witnesses said they saw several casualties.

    It was not immediately clear if they were dead.

  • Hirut Guangul Becomes the First Female Athlete who Shows Protest Gesture

    Hirut Guangul, of Ethiopoia, crosses the finish line to take first place in women's group of the full marathon portion of the Quad Cities Marathon Sunday, Sept. 25, 2016, at the finish line near John Deere Pavilion in Moline.

    As Hirut Guangul, of Ethiopia, crossed the Quad Cities Marathon finish line as the first woman overall for the fourth consecutive year, she crossed her arms above her head in an "X". Guanhul became the first QCM four-time champion, but the moment became larger than just her athletic achievement on Sunday morning. "I like this race," said Guanhul. "Four-time champion. I'm very, very happy." After the race, the 24-year-old said the "X" is a way of protesting the human rights abuses that are taking place in Ethiopia.

    Guanhul's simple action is a brave and powerful one that bypasses any language barrier. Hundreds of peaceful Ethiopian protesters have been killed or arrested by the Ethiopian military this year. Protesters have demanded equality for the country's Oromo people, Ethiopia's largest ethnic group that has felt marginalized by the government as it pushes them off their land before selling it. Ethiopian runner Feyisa Lilesa held up an "X" with his arms as he won silver in the marathon at the Rio Olympics. The gesture has been used as a symbol of strength and peaceful resistance.  

    Lilesa says he likely will not be able to return home after making the gesture of solidarity. The Oromos also have used the "X" as a sign of their protest.
