The IIFWP - which included Former Ethiopian Ambassador Aurelia E. Brazeal and current Ambassador David H. Shinn in its forum - is an organization led by Unification Church founder Rev. Sun Myung Moon, owner of The Times. "Those people who are sitting in there are the ones who are supporting the killing in Ethiopia," said Zenash Teferra, a protester. Elias Kifle, another protester, agreed. "We are asking The Washington Times to pay attention to the situation in Ethiopia," he said. "Right now The Washington Times - and the rest of the media - are ignoring the genocide in Ethiopia, just like they ignored genocide in Rwanda."

WASHINGTON, Dec. 14- Dozens of Ethiopians yesterday braved the cold to protest a forum on the “democratization� of their country being held at The Washington Times newspaper's headquarters.

More than 50 protesters chanted "Washington Times break your silence" and held signs that said "Your darling eats his own young" during a more than three-hour protest of Interreligious and International Federation for World Peace-sponsored event.
