A Producer and Director of Migration of Beauty, which was initially a documentary about the success of Ethiopians in America will, but which later was transformed to a reflection on the Diaspora’s reaction to the controversial 2005 Ethiopian elections.

Chris told on his speech :

I will commence a hunger strike in front of the White House to get President Obama or someone from his administration to acknowledge Birtukan Mideksa as a prisoner of conscious and to call for her immediate release from wrongful imprisonment. Fighting for democracy and freedom have always been traditional American values and I will fight for these values for my Ethiopian brothers and sisters. Please join me in the hunger strike which will commence on May 3rd 2010. We can’t save the World but we can certainly do our part. – Chris Flaherty
