Another episode, another special guest graces us with their insight! Jeff Pearce (author, journalist, activist, ally for African progress) joins us to discuss his time in Ethiopia at the height of the war waged by the TPLF on Ethiopia (the war still continues...). Jeff was present on the ground in places such as Dessie, Lalibela, and Afar. He spent time with internally displaced peoples (IDPs) and visited sites destroyed by TPLF (hospitals, hotels, places of worship). We also discuss the loss of momentum with the #NoMore movement and the unfortunate splintering of support due to varying perspectives. An episode so jam-packed we had to separate it into two parts. Check the links below and please support important work, including The Gifts of Africa: How a Continent and Its People Changed the World and Prevail: The Inspiring Story of Ethiopia's Victory over Mussolini's Invasion.
