Red terror is a black stain in the history of the Ethiopian revolution that ended the imperial government in Ethiopia.
Thousands of young people were massacred in Colonel Mengistu Hailemariam’s response to the white terror of the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Party (EPRP).
Dereja Haile’s interview with Nesibu Sebhat below highlights the history of the EPRP in Kazanchis, a neighborhood in the capital Addis Ababa. The social misery caused by the struggle is also highlighted, including antagonism between friends, the role of women, women who worked in bars, and the role of mothers.
