Urael has just had a little dig about the relative lack of politics on this blog:
After the crackdown of the local press the content of this blog [Meskel Square] tended to be more human interest and less reporting about what is going on in politics and human rights issues.
It is the latest is a line of similar complaints. I'm afraid this isn't going to make him/her any happier.
I was listening to The Stone Roses' second album The Second Coming the other day and came across what must be the best reference to Ethiopia's not-so-sunny capital in popular song.
From New York City
To Addis Aba-ba-ba-ba
Keep on keeping strong
Keep on keeping on
You could see it as some sort of diaspora political rallying cry if you really wanted to.
Can anyone out there think of a better musical name check?
