May 5, 2017

Washington DC ( Little Ethiopia )-The patriotic and resilient people of Ethiopia celebrate the 76th anniversary of the Ethiopian victory against Italian fascism within the Diaspora and inside the continental Africa on Miazia 27 ( May 5th or the Day is known as Cinco de Mayo ). This Day marks the day where the gallant Ethiopian patriots who fought against European Imperialism asserted their right to exist as an independent nation after successfully defeating the Italian military power in collaboration with its allies, the patriots resisted for nearly 5 and half years beginning October 1935. The Italians were completely evicted from Ethiopia on May 5, 1941 and Emperor Haile Selassie I tumultuously returned to his throne and ruled the country until he was killed by a military junta in 75.
