Bertukan Mideksa returned to Ethiopia yesterday after seven years in the United States. Young people from the Fearnsay Legasion district in the capital Addis Ababa have organized a very warm red carpet for a woman that many Ethiopians sought inspiration when she fought for democracy and human rights in the country before she left the country.
"I'm very happy," said Birtukan.
Her emotional, humble speech for the crowd that appeared to her mother was moving. And her video was circulating on social media. Look below.
