Agitu Gudeta


Recommended Posts

As much as I like the New York Times, my favorite newspaper is The Economist.  Each issue they publish an obituary on the final page.  Often as not it is of a well beloved, or otherwise, world leader.  Sometimes it is of an African cab driver.  This week it is of Agitu Gudeta, an Ethiopian alpine goatherd and cheese maker.  She was a refugee who fled Ethiopia for the Tyrol because she championed herders rights.

 

Agitu was murdered less than a month ago.  She loved her flock.  After her death "...the good neighbors of Frassilongo trudged through the snow to feed them."

This stopped me in my tracks. Bravery on behalf of workers is the highest calling, second only to teachers.
