The Battle of Adwa occurred 126 years ago, in March 1896, when Ethiopians from all throughout the country marched to Adwa and fought valiantly against an Italian colonial invader force. The victory served as a model for the rest of Africa in its fight for independence and beyond. Ethiopia was also elevated to the stature of a global icon of black emancipation as a result of the Adwa victory. This historic victory has inspired liberation fighters all over Africa, as well as oppressed people all around the world, to rise up against oppression. Since early this morning, hundreds of thousands of Addis Ababa residents have gathered in Emperor Menelik Square in Piasa to commemorate the 126th Anniversary of the Victory. Many people gathered to the streets, dressed in traditional attire and sporting colorful T-shirts picturing Emperor Menelik II and Empress Taitu, as well as other Ethiopian patriots who fought the Italian invaders valiantly at the Battle of Adwa. Patriots, veterans, religious leaders, high-ranking government officials, and members of the diplomatic community assembled for the celebration in Menelik Square, the capital’s heart.
Equestrians, youngsters, and students from several schools in the city put on traditional performances depicting Ethiopians marching towards the battle of Adwa. Victory Day has been commemorated in a number of ways around the country in major cities and regions.
