Ethiopia famine aid 'spent on weapons'

Today BBC news reports that millions of aid dollars to fight the famine in Ethiopia, 1984-85, actually came into the hands of the TPLF rebels. The men, who now form the dictatorial regime of the country, used the money to buy weapons instead of grains.

The deceit 'arms for aid' still goes on under the reign of dictator Meles, as is claimed by young artists of Circus Ethiopia. The circus poses as NGO to support and educate street children in Addis Ababa. It collects lots of money from Western NGO's and governments, money that disappears in the deep pockets of TPLF officials, while young people are being abused, raped and put to slavery.
