Prime Minister Meles Zenawi Day: Sign a Petition to Observe May 8th be a National Holiday in Ethiopia

Observe the date that Meles Zenawi was born May 8th

Prime Minster Meles Zenawi, (May 8th 1955 – Aug 20th 2012) struggled from a young age for peace, Democracy, equality and overthrew the Ethiopian Military dictator, Mengistu Haile Mariam. During his stay in power, in the past 21 years, we have witnessed Ethiopia flourish and because of his developmental policies Ethiopia is now one of the top fastest growing countries in the world. Throughout his leadership, more Ethiopians are enjoying primary and higher education, access to healthcare, modern agricultural practice, and infrastructure. We have seen the Prime Minister become the voice for Africa and a champion of global warming.

For this reason and many more, I am asking everybody to sign my petition to observe May 8th be a national holiday to remember Prime Minister Meles Zenawi. I would suggest this day be observed as a day of giving free service towards his vision to make poverty history in Ethiopia.
