Johar Ali started this petition to All who believe in freedom and

In any country across the world, previous dictators, Human Right abusers and those who committed war crimes, their statues and sculptures, are not displayed in public place as heroes as this could incite violence and public disturbance. In Ethiopia, however, a statue of Minilik, the emperor who massacred thousands, displaced millions and sold Citizens as slaves is exhibited for public visit. Heilesillasie, for his part, played a major role in creating supremacy of one ethnic group while other ethnic groups marginalized economically their languages and capture banned. Furthermore, Heillessilie in his time,  was effectively enslaving millions of people, many were used as servants while may others killed. Displaying those sculptures publicly in the state place, could bring back those memories to surviving victims and their families. The renewed attempt to bring back the era of Minilik and other dictators contradict the wish of millions who want to see brighter, free and multicultural country. I therefore appeal to all who love freedom, equality and prosperity to sign this petition. Next generation deserves better and non polarized country. As past and future complete in Ethiopia, it is important for all of us to make the future win not past. Please sign this petition..
