Patriots, Meskel, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 2008

Ethiopian Patriots are those that served in Haile Selassie’s army, and fought the Fascist occupation during the time of the Second World War. There are few of these old men left, but they proudly present themselves, in uniform and the colors of their flag, at public ceremonies, remembering the liberation of their country from foreign occupation, and maintaining Ethiopia’s status as the only country in Africa that was not colonized by Europe.
