Coalition for H.R. 2003 We thank all Ethiopian Americans, Ethiopians and Friends of Ethiopia for their extraordinary work in getting co-sponsors for H.R. 2003.

We are especially thankful to Congressman Donald Payne and his staff for the marvelous job they did in getting members to co-sponsor H.R. 2003.

We owe Congressman Payne a great debt of gratitude for introducing and sustaining this bill; and without his personal support and attention, his unflagging commitment to freedom, democracy, human rights and accountability in Ethiopia, our efforts would NOT have generated the excitement and anticipation that has now surrounded H.R. 2003 in the U.S. Congress.     

Ethiopian Americans, please contact your representative now and request that she/he co-sponsor the bill.

The apparent objective is to prevent the dissemination of information that is critical of the regime.
