  • Ethiopians Shave Heads to Mourn Fallen in Oromia and Amhara



    As protests continued to engulf parts of Ethiopia’s Amhara and Oromia regions this month, citizens have been shaving their heads as a sign of solidarity with jailed opposition leaders.

    People posted videos online of themselves shearing off their hair with electric razors in response to a letter smuggled out of prison by Oromo political leader Bekele Gerba and others. In some Ethiopian cultures, a shaved head is part of the mourning process after the death of a loved one.

    “They’re calling for mourning for those who are martyred, for visiting those who are in the hospital and to pay a visit to the families of the martyrs,” said Jawar Mohammed, executive director of the Oromia Media Network, a dissident satellite TV channel based in Minnesota broadcasting into Ethiopia.

    They're also pleading with the government and the international community to stop what he calls the "mass murder" of people.

    Human Rights Watch recently reported that more than 400 people have died since the anti-government protests started in Oromia last November. At least another 100 people died during another round of clashes between police and protesters earlier this month.

    2. If you are a fan of The Simpsons you will be able to guess who this man looks like. He looks exactly like Homer and Marge’s religious neighbor Ned Flanders. It is clear he is trying to be his twin with the hair, glasses and outfit, and he looks identical to him.
