激进分子抗议G8峰会



Several hundred Ethiopian activists came from across the United States to protest meetings involving Ethiopian rime Minister Meles Zenawi, who has been in power since 1991. The United States is a major aid contributor to thiopia, whose leader has been accused of restricting freedoms, including those of the media.

Discussions with African leaders have focused on boosting outside agricultural investment, but one protester, ohamed Abdo, warned against pouring any outside money into Ethiopia.

"They use this money to buy and to supress the people, not for the benefit of the people, so first of all we need o have a free election," he said. "It should be supported by the people so that whatever kind of policy, it hould be the people's policy, it should not be a one person policy, that is our message."

Another protester, Tsegaye, said Americans should be concerned their tax dollars are being misspent on projects nvolving undemocratic countries, regardless of whether they are considered security allies.

"If you don't have a transparent government, if you dont have rule of law, you do not know how those contracts are xecuted. Are they in the best interest of the Ethiopian people? In the long run, we do not know," Tsegaye said.

Another protest, called the Counter Group of Eight Community Block Party, was held in nearby Frederick, Maryland.

Replicas of drones were on display to criticize current U.S. military actions.

Brian Henry, a regular of so-called Occupy protests in the United States against wealth disparity , said he had ittle respect for the talks at Camp David.

"I do not know if I care to speculate," noted Henry, "but my opinion is that they talk about how to make the rich of their countries richer."

Police were on the lookout at both events, to make sure there was no violence or public disturbance. Several protesters said they had tried to enter Camp David, but were turned away.

与非洲领导人们的讨论都集中在提高外部农业投资,但一名抗议者,穆罕默德•阿卜杜警告称拒绝任何外部资金进入埃塞俄比亚。
“他们用这些钱来收买和压制人民,而不是为了人民的利益,因此首先我们需要有一个自由选举。”他说道。“这应该是在人民支持下的政策,应该是人民的政策,不应该成为一个人的政策,这就是我们想要表达的信息。”
另一位抗议者特赛加耶称美国人应该关注自己在不论是否认为安全盟国的非民主国家的项目中被浪费的税款。
“如果你没有一个透明的政府,如果你没有法治,你就不知道如何执行这些合同。他们是为埃塞俄比亚人民的最佳利益考虑吗?从长远来看,我们不知道,” 特赛加耶说道。
另一场被称为反对八个社区封锁党派组织的抗议活动在马里兰州弗雷德里克附近举行。
无人驾驶飞机的复制品被展出以批判美国当前的军事行动。
布莱恩•亨利是一位在美国反对贫富不运动中所谓的占领抗议者的普通人,他对于戴维营会谈一点也不尊重。
“如果我能推测的话我不知道,”亨利表示,“但我的观点是,他们谈论的是如何使国家的富人们更加富有。”
警方正在密切关注着事态进展以确保没有暴力流血事件或公共干扰。一些抗议者表示他们曾试图进入戴维营,但被拒绝。
