1 August- October Issue 7 THE CORONATION OF H.I.M EMPEROR HAILE SELASSIE I Last Sunday, a great ceremony took place at Addis Abbaba [Ababa], the capital of Abyssinia. It was the Coronation of the new Emperor of Ethiopia - Ras Tafari. From reports and expectations, the scene was one of great splendour, and will long be remembered by those who were present. Several of the leading nations of Europe sent representatives to the coronation, thereby paying their respects to a rising Negro nation that is destined to play a great part in the fiiture history of the world.

2 EWF Inc Greetings to Members and Non-Members It s that time again, Melkam Addis Amet (Happy New Year), a time to celebrate, give thanks and plan forward. It is also a new year for the Executive Council and following a successful Convention in Ethiopia during July 2009, a new Executive Council has been sworn in. We would like to take this opportunity to give thanks to the Executive Council of 2008/09 for their hard works and achievements and welcome the new Executive Council for 2009/10. We must also remember that an Executive Council is only as strong as the membership that it represents. For real and sustained change in what are difficult and uncertain times, it is important that the membership give the Executive Council their full support. The Ethiopian World Federation, Incorporated is very much focussed with strengthening and modernising its administration as this is vital to effective functioning and the achievement of its goals and objectives. Therefore, the contribution of the members is vital if the Organisation is to be truly reflective of its membership. In order to facilitate this membership contribution, the channels of communications were greatly improved last year, including an improved website a bi-monthly enewsletter (Voice of Ethiopia), regular updates from the Executive Council and international members conference calls. At a time when mainstream governments, banks and institutions have been embroiled in corruption and malfeasance, it is fitting that we the Black Peoples of the World, the Ethiopian Family, have been putting our house in order and becoming accountable to Members. Let us hope that the bigger Ethiopian Governments across the World are also doing the same, in these perilous times. The Editorial Team received a number of enquiries from readers about the delay in receiving the August/September issue of the Voice of Ethiopia. It agreed that the Team would take a summer holiday and await reports from the new Executive Council for inclusion in the first issue of the Voice of Ethiopia following the Convention. The Team apologises for any disappointment that this may have caused to readers and will endeavour to advise you of future delays.

6 EWF Inc Malaku E Bayen Exhibition Ethiopia July 2009 Malaku E Bayen Exhibition and presentation was a spectacular success, although the logistics of attempting such an event in Ethiopia is not easy. We were able to accomplish the effort through the coordinated efforts of members at home and abroad. All was not as planned but with the great effort of members especially Rueben Kush who is based in Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian people were able to see the light of Malaku Emmanel Bayen. The exhibition was housed at the Lily of the Valley Hotel, Shashamane and the Imperial Hotel, Addis Ababa, with 600 to 700 people attending the event over five days. Following a meeting with with the President of St Mary s Law University, a request has been made to EWF Inc to show the exhibition at the Law School. It is clear that the event was of much benefit to Ethiopians at home and those resident in Ethiopia from abroad. For many Ethiopians it was the first opportunity for them to learn about and gain an understanding of the great works of Malaku E Bayen and the Ethiopian World Federation, its members and how the Land Grant in Shashamane came about. It is intended to re-run the Exhibition in Ethiopia and to improve on its quality and presentation, as well as launching a more intense publicity camapaign. The cost of the Exhibition was sponsored by the International Organiser at a cost of US$1500. The International Organiser s office is currently seeking sponsorship, donations and advertising booking from individuals and businesses, to enable the Exhibition to be improved and transported around the world, including St Ann s Jamaica during the Convention in 2010 (See Headquarters Contact Details at rear of VOE). The following are a few of the comments from Exhibition attendees(exactly as scripted) Dr Malaku E is one of Ethiopian hero. I as a citizen share the same objective ewf: victory over Italy is victory of all Black men I am happy finally Ethiopians has come to know of Dr Malaku s works. Matasefa Haile I have seen the best history of the Emperor at the all time. Tegasse Avay Wonderful exhibition, valuable history, hope more people can see. Kim Gad Wow Wow.. as an Ethiopian I am ashamed of my little knowledge of this nations history. But now I am greatly astonished and felt proud of my history. How to sustain this colourful history in the present days remains the challenge. Long live Ethiopia

10 EWF Inc A JOURNEY TO THE GIFTED LAND OF VARIETY: SOUTHERN ETHIOPIA For most of us travelling to Ethiopia, Addis Ababa and Shashemane are the main destinations, also historical and spiritual places like Axum, Lalibela, Gondar and Bahir Dar are well known. Only few adventure into the South and the wild southern regions. Just imagine a part of the Caribbean in the Ethiopian Rift Valley, then let me take you to cities like Awassa in Sidamo, Sodo in Woleita and Arba Minch in Gamo Gofa, Karrat in Konso. All of these are part of the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Regional State (SNNPRS). The Southern Nations Nationalities and People Regional State is one of the nine states in Ethiopia. The chain of sparkling lakes, hot and cold spring waters, abundant wild life and bird life and a variety of beautiful natural scenery and resources, make the region a unique place in its own way. There are more than 56 ethnic groups with their distinct cultural, and traditional values. The region is divided into 13 zones or provinces. L e a v - ing Shashemane in the Oromya province, it will take you about 25 minutes, after the check point, to get to Awasssa in the Sidamo 10 Unique Towering Behive Homes of the Dorze People Beautiful Paridise Lodge in Arbaminch province, the largest province of the SN- NPRS. Awassa is the capital city of both Sidamo province and The Southern Nations Nationalities and Peoples Regional State (SNNPRS). It is located 20kms from Shashsemane and 275 kms from Addis Ababa. Awassa got its name form the lake: Hawassa Lake. Traditionally, according to history, farmers, peasants and others used to gather by the lake to feed their cattles, get water or fish for their domestic use. Lake Awassa is one of the most beautiful and serene lakes of the southern region. The city was officially established by His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Sellassie 1st in 1959, as He was Himself governor of the Sidamo province in Nowadays Awassa is a charming and modern city with various facilities for visitors, hotels, hospitals, banks, universities, and a good administration. The lake is one a of main attraction, including visits on boat and also Mounts Tabor and Alamura, the Millennium Park, the hot springs and the St Gabriel Orthodox Church. A palace built by His Imperial Majesty, Ras Tafari, in 1957, as a temporary stay, the Kuyuwata palace can also be visited. Using the public bus from Awassa, the journey to Sodo city in Woleita takes 2 or 3 hours travelling between smooth and rugged roads through villages, green lands and cultivated farms, small streams of water and fresh unpolluted air. Driving through the great Rift Valley, I could observed the outstand-

11 EWF Inc Traditional High Powered Ambatch Boats, Lake Abaya ing natural beauty with high mountains, steep valleys, rollings plains, rivers and the beautiful people of the area, smiling and reflecting their culture in their doings. The town of Sodo Woleita is about 160 kms from Awassa and 385 kms from Addis Ababa. Its inhabitants are mainly expert farmers and its bustling market is worth a visit. There are good standard hotels at reasonable prices. It takes 20 minutes to have a drink and/or a snack and to change bus which will take you to one of the most fertile area of the southern region. Two more hours of travel takes in green land with lush vegetation, forests, but more amazingly, while on the bus we could appreciate the most diverse fields and farms of fruits and vegetables like, papaya, mango, banana and false banana (ensete), orange, pineapple, lemon, sugar cane, avocado, coffee, corn, cotton, pumpkin, cassava and dasheen, just to mention some. Futhermore, a range of mountains is surrounding the area, which makes it a natural fascination. A part of one of the most famous national parks of Ethiopia, the Nech-sar (White Grass) Park, can be seen when driving to the city of Arba Minch (Forty Springs). Near by the city, 26 kms up to Chencha, the Dorze people ethnic group are well known for their woven cotton cloth (shama) and their traditional towering beehive shaped houses made from bamboo and reaching up to 12 metres high. The Dorze were once warriors who have turned to farming and weaving. The city of Arba Minch (Forty Springs) is located in the Gamo Gofa province, 275kms from Awassa and 510 kms from Addis Ababa, and was establised in It gets its name Forty Springs from the many springs of clear waters coming form the hills around the capital of the Semein Omo zone. Arba Minch is a very attractive and natural city with welcoming people and many, many natural and cultural attractions. Most of the international and local standard hotels have kept the traditional and cultural aspects of the region. Major hotels are Tourist Hotel, Bekele Mola Hotel, Paradise Lodge and Swaynes Hotel which along with the many pension and guest houses, are easy to access. Qualifed tour guides are available as a measure of safety and sustainability. The largest airport of the Southern region is located in Arba Minch with 3 to 4 weekly fligths from and to Addis Ababa. Two of the most beautiful lakes of the Rift Valley lie down just a few miles from the city: Lake Chamo (350 sq kms/214 miles) and Lake Abaya 1070 sq kms/653 sq miles), separated by a hilly ridge or small mountain named Bridge of Heaven. Lake Chamo is rich in aquatic life and is also a habitat for pink pelicans, hippopotamus and the famous crocodiles (5 to7 metres long). Its market is well worth a visit. These two lakes are still part of the Nech-sar Park, which is an outstanding example of a savannah park between two of the most spectacular Ethiopian lakes of Chamo and Abaya. So far, 91 mammalian species and 351 bird species are recorded in this national park, which covers a total of 514 sq kms/314 sq miles. Arba Minch and its surroundings are ideal locations for bird watchers, trekkers and lovers of wilderness to chill and relax while enjoying nature s beauty and different cultures. Moving further south was full of anticipation fo me as I was going to Karat in Konso special zone, 95 kms from Arba Minch, 365 kms from Awassa and 610 kms from Addis Ababa. Karat is the capital of Konso. The Konso people are one of the original dark skinned Ethiopians who have kept their tradition, culture and principles for thousands Seven Metre Nile Crocodile on shore of Lake Chamo 11

12 EWF Inc of years. They practice an intensive from of agriculture on the terraced hills; they build terraces on sloping terrains in order to prevent soil erosion. The Konso live together in communal villages and the stone walls built around every cottage help to prevent the spreading of fire to other houses in case of fire outbreaks. The Konso are also well know for their wooden totems or erected figures (waka) placed on the graves of their heroes and ancestors. Another attraction, unique to the Konso, is the geomorphological feature called New York, which is an eroded stone terrain that resembles the sky scrapers in New York City (USA). Finally, a must see - the Konso Eco-lodge (Strawberry Fields). This is a project which represent the local culture, offering standard hospitality (traditionally built bungalows), in an environmentally friendly setting. The organic restaurant provides vegan organic food from its own farm, all within a pleasant and unforgetable atmosphere. What a journey! All of us should try it; I promise you will feel so at ease in this Caribbean part of Ethiopia. The last parts of the south, before Kenya and the south Sudan borders, are part of the Omo Valley, Kaffa, inhabited by ethnic groups like the Mursi, Surma, Hamers Tsemay, Bena, Arbore, Karo and Ari. On the way back to Shashemane I could glance a massive baboon and appreciate again the magnificent nature and wildlife of the southern region. Lovely beauty.

13 Ethiopia Africa Session at the G8 L Aquila Summit Prime Minister Meles Zeawi, the Chair of the Heads of State and Government Implementation Committee of NEPAD, participated in the G8 Africa Session at the G8 Summit held in L Aquila, Italy (8th - 10th July) along with the Heads of State and Government of G8 countries, the President of the European Commission, the Heads of State and Government of Algeria, Egypt, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa and Angola, the Chair of the African Union and the President of the African Union Commission. The G8 and African partners agreed on the importance of continuing to reinforce their partnership, based on mutual accountability and respect, for common good. Leaders agreed that the economic and financial crisis is hitting the poorest hardest and jeopardising progress made in health, the eradication of hunger and poverty. They also underscored the need to act swiftly to restore growth and implement adequate measures to protect the most vulnerable. G8 countries reiterated their commitments, including those made in Gleneagles and more recently at the G20 London Summit to support African efforts towards promoting development, good governance and achieving the MDGs. Also discussed was the impact of climate change on Africa. Leaders agreed on the need to ensure that the specific concerns of developing countries are adquately addressed in the agreement to be reached at the UN conference in Copenhagen. Prime Minister Meles Zenawi said the $20 bilion pledge by the Summit would assist Afrian countries to effectively implement the New Partnership for Africa s Development (NEPAD) and also help fight the world food crisis. News Ethiopia Plans New Rail System The Ethiopian government has confirmed its plans to build an extensive railway system. The plan involves the construction of 5,000km of track, mainly for carrying freight. This would be a standard gauge railway, electrified to take advantage of the abundant, cheap electricity expected to be produced by ambithious new hydroelectric schemes soon to come into operation. At the moment, Ethiopia has only one railway - the historic gauge line from Addis Ababa to Djibouti. A major project is currently underway to restore it, with European Union support. Almost a third of the track is being re-laid, using heavier weight rails. A spectacular stretch of the line, near the town of Metahara, where the track runs on a narrow causeway across a volcanic lake, has already been completed. The railway s general manager, to om Terie, said he expects a volume of about 10 trains a day and a comfortable operating profit. When the work is finished i perhaps 18 months time, the system will still be narrow gauge, but will be much safer ad more robust, able to take heavier trains at faster speeds. Euro Cable Plc Launches Production of Elecric Cables in Ethiopia Euro Cables Plc, the first private cable factory in Ethiopia, has launched production of all kinds of electric cales for the first time in the country. The general Manager of the factory said that in addition to supprting efforts to expand electricity in Ethiopia, the domestic production of electricity cables would facilitate housing development in Ethiopia. The factory was established with over 70 million Birr capital in a joint venture with Demes Kablo San Tic Ltd Sti, a Turkish company. The estalbishment of the factory would play an important role in reducing Ethiopia s foreigh currency expenditure because electricity cables were imported from abroad. The locally produced cables would save 40% of foreign currency expenditre. In addition to transferring technologies to the country, it would also enable exporting. 13

15 News Ghana Ghana: New Deal to Help Conserve Forests The Ghanaian government has signed a landmark agreement which will help it stop the export of illegally-cut timber, thus helping to conserve the country s forests. The agreement is between the government and a British company which develops computer software which can track bar-coded timber. The software will help Ghana identify and plug leakages in the supply chain as logs move from forests to markets, said Fredua Agyeman, technical director for forestry at the Ghanaian Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, in an interview with AllAfrica in Accra. Alex Gayer, commercial director of the British firm, Helveta, added that the system will allow not only governments and business, but also non-governmental organizations and local communities to track the movement of timber. In Ghana, it [the system] is being selected to be the backbone of the national wood tracking system. And that should bring substantial benefits, he said. Alex Gayer signing on behalf of Helveta. Illegal logging, in which timber is harvested, transported and sold in violation of national laws, is an ongoing problem in many African countries. It contributes to deforestation and the loss of millions of dollars in revenue. In Liberia, for example, home to one of Africa s largest rain forests, the illegal trade in timber fueled the country s civil war for years, leading to United Nations sanctions on exports which were only recently lifted. Ghana last year became the first country to sign a voluntary partnership agreement (VPA) with the European Union, a major importer of timber, providing for the establishment of a licensing scheme to ensure that only legal timber from producing countries enters the EU. The agreement between Ghana and Helveta was recently signed at a ceremony at Ghana s Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources in downtown Accra. The ministry s chief director, Ahmed Bin Said, signed on behalf of the government and Alex Gayer signed for the company. In a speech in June, the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Alhaji Collins Dauda, was quoted as saying that revenue from timber has been stabilized at about U.S. $212 million over the past five years, accounting for about 11 percent of export revenues. He noted that the greatest challenge facing the industry was rapid exploitation, which has resulted in disastrous deforestation and consequent environmental degradation. In an interview following the signing ceremony, Fredua Agyeman acknowledged that obviously there are problems of illegal activities in the field. But he cautioned that until the tracking system was installed, the government would not be able to quantify its extent. Once we have [determined] the yield, we should be able to know that what we have given out is actually what is going through the system, he said. The new software will track timber as it moves along the supply chain, using information gathered by handheld devices from bar code tags on trees and logs and transmitted by technology which includes data transfer by mobile phone. The fast gathering and entry of information enables those controlling the system to act quickly to stop the movement of illegal timber. Gayer said that by eliminating paper-based control systems, the new technology would help reduce the risk of fraud, thus boosting revenue from taxes. He added that Ghana was setting the pace for other countries: What we are witnessing is a sort of domino effect. Other countries seeing the progress that Ghana is making are following suit, and there are now various countries in the region that are now engaged with the EU in negotiating VPAs and putting in similar systems. The value of the contract has not been disclosed. Boakai Fofana allafrica.com 24th July

16 News Jamaica Reduction in Remittances Traditionally, foreign workers boost both the economies of the countrie they work in as well as teir home countries. But studies say that the current global economic crisis had sapped much of such cross-border monetary exchange. In 2008, workers abroad collectively sent $328 billion in earnings back to their country compared with $285 billion in 2007, a 15.1% increase. Of worldwide remittances, India was top with receipts of $52 billion. As the US job market weakness continues, officially recorded remittance flows to Latin America and the Caribbean region have dropped significantly in the first hald of 2009 (World Bank). Workers from Jamaica remitted 17% less to their home country than during the same period one year ago, resulting in the largest loss amongst all countries in the area. Epoch Times - August 12-18, 2009 Red Gold n Green Day Pre School - Global Appeal We are a group of 15 Rasta women based in 2 communities namely: Philippi Marcus Garvey and in Khaylitsha. We as the women of our community have come to realize that we need our own crèche run by Rasta. The reason for this is we are realizing a great change in our children s behavior and these changes do not favor a Rasta life, and also in reflection on our own lives we need to have our children educated by us at the same time for them not to fall behind with the ever changing society, we need them to embrace this life fully, well equipped and without them losing their own identity in the ever changing world. To make situations even more challenging the teachers are not well informed about Rasta life. We need to keep our children safe and balanced and we can t blame them because there are many other children in the crèche/school. So we decided to get together as the women and work towards our own day care centre and after school care centre, the challenges we face here is that we have limited resources hence we are experiencing discomfort working towards our vision and not able to produce the desired effect of educating our children. Having learnt of the learnership and the programs on offer we have approached Grass Roots and ELRU to help us, empower us with knowledge to run a proper well kept, well organized crèche for the sake of the children of our community, other parents don t have patience and they remove their children from school not realizing we are slowly creating another ignorant generation, and we as Rasta women refuse to sit back and watch this happen. So these two organizations have agreed to put together for a basic child care program where we will be workshopped to write a test 16 and receive certificates to show that we are qualified teachers. We want to do this as professionally as possible so as to avoid unnecessary conflicts with the law. This crèche is not only to benefit our Rasta community it is for the whole community because Rasta has a message of unity for everyone and we can influence our bigger community for a positive change, of self love, self respect and self sufficiency, with young children equipped with skills at a young age to help older children with their homework and create for them an after school program so they don t idol with this we are hoping to decrease the amount of teenage pregnancy and boys to stay away from drugs and unhealthy friendships created out of boredom and lack of activities within our communities. Currently we are registered as a non profit organization with Department of Social Development but it takes three months to receive your registration number, we have found temporal grounds within Philippi that we can use till we get permanent land and we are trying to find means to get building materials, we are in communication with the council of Philippi concerning funds to or ways to do this course via Government through our meetings we are aware that what we are asking from them can only materialize in 2010 July because we missed their financial year The sisters have been volunteering in 3 crèches 1 in Cape Town, the other in Observatory and the other one in Khaylitsha just so to get a feel of a crèche environment. We also do our own fund raiser events and craft markets. We are fundraising for the First Aid course which is not as expensive as the Child Care course. We are currently working towards an event for the 10th October as our fundraiser for October and we have a raffle sheet which that day will be a lucky draw tickets are between R20 and R1000 winner wins dinner for 2 at the Ethiopian Restaurant in Long street. In honesty we can t do it alone.

19 Melkam Masqal About Our Coronation as Emperor On the 17 Maskeram 1909 (=27 September 1916), I was chosen heir to the Throne and Regent, with Queen Zawditu occupying the Throne; and when I had patiently carried out the work of Government, for fourteen years, in my office of Regent Plenipotentiary, Queen Zawditu died on 24th Megabit 1922 (= 2nd April 1930) an, consequently on the morrow I was proclaimed Emperor and assumed the Throne. Events As can be seen from the above excerpt taken from H.I.M. Autobiography translated and annotated by Edward Ullendorff, RasTafarI was chosen to be King on a very special day, MASQAL. This day is commemorated in Ethiopia as the finding of the true cross and is one of the days stipulated in the EWF constitution to be observed with appropriate ceremony. Without any doubt InI can state that InI Redeemer is here. On this day every year in Masqal Square Addis Ababa and at each and every EOT Church throughout the country. Fires are lit to remember the vision and reward given to Queen Elleni of Ethiopia to light a Fire and excavate the earth where the shadow from the clouds of smoke settled on the land outside Jerusalem. From this excavation the remains of the Cross of Yesus was found and brought back to Ethiopia. This was Ethiopia s reward for defeating the Muslims who had occupied Jerusalem for many years. Are these event mere coincidence or the fulfillment of prophecy? The true cross has been found. Melkam Masaq-Fire Burn Babylon, RasTafarI Liveth Ras Wolde Selassie-Tages King 19

21 So Jah Say Haile Selassie I; The Lion of Judah on African Unity We stand today on the stage of world affairs, before the audience of world opinion. We have come together to assert our role in the direction of world affairs and to discharge our duty to the great continent whose two hundred and fifty million people we lead. Africa is today at mid-course, in transition from the Africa of Yesterday to the Africa of Tomorrow. Even as we stand here, we move from the past into the future. The task on which we have embarked, the making of Africa, will not wait. We must act, to shape and mould the future and leave our imprint on events as they slip pass into history. We seek, at this meeting, to determine whither we are going and to chart the course of our destiny. It is no less important that we know whence we came. An awareness of our past is essential to the establishment of our personality and our identity as Africans. This world was not crested piecemeal. Africa was born no later and no earlier than any other geographical area on this globe. Africans, no more and no less than other men, possess all human attributes, talents and deficiencies, virtues and faults. Thousands of years ago, civilizations flourished in Africa which suffer not at all by comparison with those of other continents. In those centuries, Africans were politically free and economically independent. Their social patterns were their own and their cultures truly indigenous. The obscurity which enshrouds the centuries which elapsed between those earliest days and the rediscovery of Africa is being gradually dispersed. What is certain is that during those long years Africans were born, lived and died. Men on other parts of this earth occupied themselves with their own concerns and, in their conceit, proclaimed that the world began and ended at their horizons. All unknown to them, Africa developed in its own pattern, growing in its own life and, in the Nineteenth Century, finally reemerged into the world s consciousness. The events of the past hundred and fifty years require no extended recitation from us. The period of colonialism into which we were plunged culminated with our continent fettered and bound; with our once proud and free peoples reduced to humiliation and slavery; with Africans terrain cross-hatched and checker boarded by artificial and arbitrary boundaries. Many of us, during those bitter years, were overwhelmed in battle, and those who escaped conquest did so at the costs of desperate resistance and bloodshed. Others were sold into bondage as the price extracted by the colonialists for the protection which they extended and the possessions of which they disposed. Africa was a physical resource to be exploited and Africans were chattels to be purchased bodily or, at best, peoples to be reduced to vasselage and lackeyhood. Africa was the market for the produce of other nations and the source of the raw materials with which their factories were fed. Today, Africa has emerged from this dark passage. Our Armageddon is past. Africa has been reborn as a free continent and Africans have been reborn as free men. The blood that was shed and the sufferings that were endured are today Africa s advocates for freedom and unity. Those men who refused to accept the judgement passed upon them by the colonisers, who held Inspiration unswervingly through the darkest hours to a vision of an Africa emancipated from political, economic and spiritual domination, will be remembered and revered wherever Africans meet. Many of them never set foot on this continent. Others were born and died here. What we may utter today can add little to the heroic struggle of those who, by their example, have shown us how precious are freedom and human dignity and of how little value is life without them. Their deeds are written in history. Africa s victory, although proclaimed, is not yet total, and areas of resistance still remain. Today, we name as our first great task the final liberating of those Africans still dominated by foreign exploitation and control. With the goal in sight and unqualified triumph within our grasp, let us not now falter or lag or relax. We must make one final supreme effort; now, when the struggle grows weary, when so much has been won, that the thrilling sense of achievement has brought us near satiation. Our liberty is meaningless unless all Africans are free. Our brothers in the Rhodesias, in Mozambique, in Angola, in South Africa cry out in anguish for our support and assistance. We must urge on their behalf their peaceful accession to independence. We must align and identify ourselves with all aspects of their liberation and not fail to back our words with action. To them we say, your pleas shall not go unheeded. The resources of Africa and all freedom-loving nations are marshalled in your service. Be of good heart, for your deliverance is at hand. 1. One important lesson that we have learnt from the experience of the last ten years is that we cannot leave the further progress of African unity to take its own direction at its own pace without active guidance from us.the volume of intra-african trade, which at present, accounts for less than ten percent of our total foreign trade should be progressively increased, so that by the end of the decade trade among African countries should occupy a significant place in the exports of each of our countries.

22 Inspiration Article from the original Voice of Ethiopia Volume 2 Number 10 Saturday, April 2, 1938 SUCCESS IS SURE But success will not be a simple or an easy matter for there will remain stumbling blcoks. Some of our people will oppose the movement. That is to be expected. It would indeed be strange if the four hundred millions people thought and felt the same way. Some of the opponents will be allied with those forces that are detemined that Black men shall not enjoy all the rights, responsibilities and privileges of human beings. Some of our opponents will be those who care only for their immediate, small, personal interests and so will accept pay from the enemy to hamper the work of the Federation. A few of these we have already seen in operation but they have been unable to break the Solid Federation Front. Then there will be the intriguers, the pahtological cases the diseased minds who cannot make up their minds to break away from an old and decadent course, who lack the will to decide and so spread doubt and suspicion among the loyal and true and vigorous workers for Black freedom. Those also we have seen. They are weak in will, they are timid. They lack power to convince any one. They are known partly by their inability to stick to their own game. If you oppose them they will shift their ground. They are perhaps more fool than knave. They have no real influence except perhaps with people like themselves feebleminded. land of their ancestors, dying from under nourishment, digging godl to enrich the white world at 40 cents per day; forbidden to learn trades; ahunted off to reservations lands, which an African recently told us, they do not control. The Ethiopian World Federation, will succeed in its objectives of (1) rendering vital assistance to Ethiopia in her great difficulty, (2) Ushering in a new day for the Black race throughout the world. The effort was born of resentment against the injustice done by Italy and all Europe to Ethiopia, the same feeling will keep the effort alive and will give it speed and force. Stumbling Blocks 22 Why We Will Succeed The Federation will Succeed because Black people are tired of humbug, tired of drifting, tired of oppression, tired of poverty, tired of thwarted ambition, tired of being regarded as half child and half fool throughout the world, tired of being servants to the world, tired of being kicked around, tired of dependence, tired of being prevented from living a full life, tired to death of White Supremacy. The eyes of the black race are wide open. The Black man stands today on all the international frontiers with his back to the wall. In Ethiopia, the fight goes on. There was the most brazen attack against the liberty of Black men, that the world has ever seen. Ethiopia, attacked by Italy with the blessing of the Catholic Church and the active aid of France and Great Britain. Ethiopia abandoned by the League of Nations, a body sworn to defend and protect its members from agression. Black Men Have Noted And Are Taking Action Persecution of Blacks grows apace in the West Indies Barbados, Trinidad and other parts. British war ships hovering around to bombard our people struggling for bread, for the right to live decently and comfortably. Black Men Have Noted And Are Taking Action The oppression of our people in the Southern States. The slavery that still remains unabolished. The restriction of the liberties of our people in the Northern States. In industry and business and in all other human activities. Our people in their own home, Africa, are as badly off as Jews in Austria, strangers and slaves in the Black Men Have Noted And Are Taking Action Close Ranks Ethiopia, the West indies, other parts of Africa, the United States, universal persecution of Black men. These things have made Black men wide-eyed. The Federation is taking action. Black men! Forget your differences. Black men! Awake from you sleep; citizens of the Universal black Commonwealth, which of the countries in which you live gives you a square deal? The Black man s destiny is in his own hands. He has seen and therefore, success of the Federation is inevitable. Onward March. Haile Selassie; The Lion Of Judah on African Unity 2. African countries should establish progressive targets for reducing tariffs - and other trade barriers among themselves. 3. Our Ministers charged with the responsibility of economic planning should hold regular consultations so as to harmonise our development policies and plans and to open up potential avenues for the expansion of intra-african trade. Through regular consultations, we should undertake to identify the need for and to establish industries which may cater to our common needs. This is important, because the scale on which modern industries can become viable today necessitates that we should create in Africa wide economic bases to support a balanced economic state. May 25, 1963 ( Selected Speeches, p241)

I walked the desert, climbed and meditated on a mountain, swam in the Nile - regularly cycled through Luxor, stood still in awe in the temples of our anciet ancestors, read the sacred writings, slept under the open sky and watched shooting stars, played drums, sang and danced with the Nubians, taught yoga (Afrikan style) at the first appearance of the sun and as the sun appears to disappear over the Dahabiah on the river.
