CSUSB professor emeritus congratulates Ethiopian prime minister on winning Nobel Peace Prize
Dec. 10, 2019
In a column, Alemayehu G. Mariam, CSUSB professor of political science, emeritus, wrote: “In his last will and testament, Alfred Nobel provided for an award to be given to ‘champions of peace to be selected by a committee of five persons in the Norwegian Storting.’
“I wish to congratulate the ‘2019 Nobel Champion of Peace,’ H.E. Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia. He will be accepting his prize on December 10, 2019 in Oslo, Norway. …
“Our son, our brother Abiy Ahmed has seen visions of an Ethiopia at peace, a Horn of Africa at peace and an Africa at peace.
“And we, the old men, are blessed to see our dreams come true.
“Ethiopia’s Cheetah Generation (young people) will raise Ethiopia from the pit of despair to the heights of hope; from a bottomless poverty to boundless prosperity.”

CSUSB professor interviewed for article about extremist paramilitary groups
Dec. 9., 2019
Brian Levin, a criminal justice professor at California State University, San Bernardino and co-author of “The Limits of Dissent: The Constitutional Status of Armed Civilian Militias,” was quoted in an article about armed paramilitary groups that act as vigilantes, especially those on the extreme right, in light of the coming 2020 presidential election.
Nearly every state has the legal tools to crack down on paramilitary groups. Why don’t they use them?
The escalating political tension ahead of the 2020 election intensifies the need to find a solution.
“We have been seeing an increase in not just hate crimes, but political homicide and threats against politicians,” said Levin. “In the climate of catalytic political events like elections or impeachment, we have a set of statutes that we can employ if we see escalated civil disorder.”
