Statement of Oromo Officers working in various departments of Ethiopian Government

(Qeerroo News, Finfinnee, 18 May 2011) We, Oromo officers working at different capacities in a range of service departments of the Ethiopian government: security, army, regional and federal police forces and the court system, have held a meeting today, May 07-2011 in Adama town. Following thorough discussion on the present situation of our people and country, we unanimously passed the following resolution.

  1. Whereas the political activities, violation of human rights, oppression and suppression of democratic rights of citizens, systematic exploitation of Oromia’s resources, etc. of Oromia and other regions of the country by the Ethiopian government, leading to further devastation, and our region’s political situation turned into more and more volatile situation; whereas we have tirelessly made an effort in numerous ways to restore democracy, justice and fairness, however, our attempts were dashed, and no progressive outcome were achieved. Therefore, we stand on the side of our people and country and  demand the government that the multi-faceted questions raised by the National Youth Movement get positive response  immediately.
  2. It is undeniable fact that Mallas Zenawi himself, during his early rebellion years has struggled for the secession of Tigrai from Ethiopia. On the contrary, it is sad to see that after he came to power and controlled the entire country, is harassing, massively detaining, torturing, and killing the Oromo youth and the entire Oromo population for raising the same question of freedom he himself raised during his young age. We demand that the Ethiopian government take responsibility for the lives lost, physical and psychological damaged incurred on Oromo students and openly apologize to their families. We will take this opportunity to publicly apologize to the Oromo youth and entire Oromo nation for the damage we incurred by being an instrument of this regime. We promise to pay back the damage we incurred by struggling being on the side of the National Youth Movement.
  3. Whereas those capitulated themselves to the Ethiopian government, by betraying Oromo Liberation Front, (OLF), are freely moving everywhere and speaking on the media freely, the government instead is harassing children of oppressed people who do not carry any weapon other than pen and pencil simply because they are born Oromo and therefore suspected by the regime of being a member or supporter of OLF. This makes us to believe that the complex political situation in Ethiopia in general and the Oromo situation in particular can not be resolved without freedom. In line with this we are detrmined to stand on the side of the Oromo youth to bring about a fundamental change in Oromia and in Ethiopia.
  4. Whereas the government armed forces stormed the University of Mizen Teppi and injured more than 120 Oromo students in April, and those injured were unable to get medical treatment and have been denied access or visit by their families and relatives; whereas such inhuman act vividly proves denial of  their inalienable natural right of Oromo people as a nation in their county and land; we strongly request the Ethiopian government to release those detained immediately compensate the students for the damaged incurred and publicly make an apology statement to their families.

No more silence! We no longer keep quiet while we look injustice happening in front of our eyes, while we hear the cries of our citizens with our own ears.

 Freedom Prevails!

Finfinnee:Taxi drivers go on strike

(Qeerroo News, Finfinnee, 16 May 2011) Taxi and mini-bus drivers in Finfinnee have begun an unofficial strike to protest against a new law aimed at trying to reduce traffic accidents.

Oromia’s capital Finfinnee is hit with a strike by taxi drivers today accrording to Qeerroo news. Drivers can now lose their licenses if they commit a certain number of offenses — and fines have increased six-fold.

Most taxi drivers have stayed home this morning, causing a massive transportation disruption in the city. Drivers also have complained that the new rules are too punitive.

Thousands of people in the capital, Finfinnee, walked to work because of the strike.The taxi drivers are protesting the unbearable cost of living and a recent regulation that limits them to certain areas of the city.

Finfinnee’s transport bureau says more than five hundred people have been killed in traffic accidents over the past two years.

Oromia: Oromo university students beaten during interrogation admitted to hospital

(Qeerroo News, Finfinnee, May 14,2011) – The Oromian Youth Movement reveals that at least 10 University (AAU) students who refused to give self incriminating evidence beaten and they are under high care treatment at St. Paul hospital.

In a statement released on May 13 Qeerroo, the National Youth Movement, says the Oromos in general and the Oromo Students in particular have obviously been the first in the line of victimization when it comes down to ethnicity and regional lines.

According to the statement, among the detainees there are graduating class students from AAU, Hawassa, Jima and Haromaya universities. Forum asked government to stop violating constitutional rights of citizens.

The statement indicated that the situation worsened during EPRDF administration though the public expects it to bring peace and democratic system. However, the Youth determined to die for their freedom in their home land in peaceful struggle.

“We, Oromo and all other oppressed peoples students, declare to the world and the Ethiopian peoples that we are committed to be first in torching the revolution.Given the recent history of Oromo students’ movement, we are cognizant of the price of freedom.We are determined to die in freedom than living in slavery," says Qeerroo.

Meanwhile, the main opposition group called Forum confirmed that six Addis Ababa University (AAU) students who refused to give self incriminating evidence beaten and they are under treatment at St. Paul hospital.

The Forum says Ethiopians defeated external invaders in defense of their country. The Forum however, says dictatorial leaders who hold power in the country have been killing, arresting and violating human rights of citizens.

EPRDF accusation against oppositions and their supporters over links with Eritrean government is baseless Forum said. The statement says EPRDF is scared because of removal of dictators from power following public uprising in Arab countries.

With the intention to weaken the struggle for democracy, government arrested 200 people from Oromia region accused of having links with OLF. The statement says government denied the arrested people visitation right by families.

Background

The most recent crackdown against Oromo students, which has been going on since April 14, 2011, has hit all universities and colleges in different regional states, and has sent hundreds students to prison without any idea as to when they would be released. According to the recent Qeerroo findings the names of the following detained students are:

As it was the case in the previous similar crackdowns on Oromo students, this most recent violence by a government against its own citizens was started in Mizan Tepi University with students of Tigrian origin deliberately provoking Oromo students and inciting clashes, with armed security forces waiting standby in the backyard.

Press Release – The Ethiopian Youth Movement therefore fully supports the recently issued press statement of the National Oromian Youth Movement, and calls upon the removal of Meles Zenawi from power

Democracy, Freedom, Liberty and Unity Shall Prevail in Ethiopia!

The Ethiopian youth is once again determined to make history. We haveunanimously decided to conduct tactical campaign strategy and remove the despotic regimethat has been in power for more than 20 years through brute force and fraudulent elections. In 1974 the popular revolution that overthrew the age old imperial regime was led by the youth. It was the result of the sustained struggle of the Ethiopian student movement that culminated in a popular revolution. After the 1974 revolution, the Ethiopian youth vehemently fought the military regime, and paid dearly. The sacrifice required retreat and change of strategy. In 1991, the youth managed to remove the military dictatorship. Unfortunately like the 1974 revolution, the 1991 revolution was hijacked by poor leaders and blood thirsty Marxist dictators that used ethnic differences as a card to impose an apartheid type minority rule. Today the Ethiopian youth faces severe hardship, has little sense of national cohesion, and is living with grim future. It is facing high unemployment, mass migration, bad education, eviction from its ancestral land to give way to land to foreigners and lost its God given liberty.

On the positive side, there is hope. We are fully aware that our destiny is in our hands. We are also inspired by our peers in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Yemen and elsewhere. There is no reason why we cannot have the Arab uprising in Ethiopia. We can have an Ethiopian Spring that addresses the root causes of bad governance. Therefore, we have resolved to bring the torch to Ethiopia, and liberate the country from the minority dictatorship that has been in power for more than 20 years.

To this effect, the youth wings of major political organizations have agreed to work for peaceful change, with the main objective of creating a platform in bringing the Ethiopian youth together, to network and build solidarity, brainstorm ideas, strategize long term and short term plans to shape the political, social and economic future of Ethiopia. We want to contribute to peace and development not only in Ethiopia but in the Horn of Africa. We want to resolve the Nile River issue with a win win situation for all countries. Our aim is to promote democracy and end minority rule through peaceful resistance. It is to promote equality, justice, unity and mutual respect among all Ethiopians. The Ethiopian Youth Movement is an independent network with structures in most parts of Ethiopia, and in the Diaspora. It has been operating for sometime. It is an action oriented movement that does not aspire to hold a political office. Our movement rejects all forms of extremism.

In the short term, the struggle will focus on removing the dictatorship through peaceful resistance. The struggle period can be short or a protracted one. It aims to minimize the level of sacrifice. Our struggle is not against the ordinary TPLF members or the Ethiopian Defense Forces. It is against the TPLF cabal, the violators of human rights and corrupt officials. We have an excellent relationship with the global youth movement. Our short term aim is to help the formation of a Transitional Government that prepares the country for an unfettered free and fair election.

The Transitional Government, in addition to preparing the country for a free and fair election, shall maintain law and order, and defend the unity and territorial integrity of the country during the transition period. It shall have no hidden agenda. The Ethiopian Youth Movement therefore fully supports the recently issued press statement of the National Oromian Youth Movement, and calls upon the removal of Meles Zenawi from power. We support the suspension of the constitution and the abolition of the rubber stamp parliament of TPLF.

No amount of suppression and propaganda shall confuse the Ethiopian youth from its target. We are very happy to announce that the peaceful resistance for change will start on May 28, 2011. We call upon Ethiopian students, farmers, workers, civil servants, businessmen and women, professionals, political organizations, civic organizations, religious leaders, and men and women in the uniform to join the youth movement to remove the dictatorship. We also call upon all armed and clandestine opposition forces to declare cease fire and support the peaceful struggle.

The struggle for democracy and unity shall continue!

Ethiopian Youth Movement

Monday Commentary: An Imaginary Conversation With Nelson Mandela

An Imaginary Conversation with Nelson Mandela

RATE: 0

The Triumphalism of African Dictators

There is nothing that is both amusing and annoying than the chest-beating triumphalism of Africa’s tin pot dictators. This past February, Yoweri Museveni of Uganda lectured a press conference: "There will be no Egyptian-like revolution here. … We would just lock them up. In the most humane manner possible, bang them into jails land that would be the end of the story." That is to say, if you crack a few heads and kick a few behinds, Africans will bow down and fall in line. Museveni must have been a protégé of Meles Zenawi, the dictator-in-chief in Ethiopia. In 2005, troops under the direct control and command of Zenawi shot dead at least 193 unarmed demonstrators, wounded an additional 763 and jailed over 30 thousand following elections that year. That was the “end of the story” for Zenawi. Or was it?

In March of this year, Zenawi reaffirmed his 99.6 percent electoral victory in the May 2010 elections and ruled out an “Egyptian-like revolution” by proclaiming a contractual right (read birthright) to cling to power: “When the people gave us a five year contract, it was based on the understanding that if the EPDRF party (Zenawi’s party) does not perform the contract to expectations it would be kicked out of power. No need for hassles. The people can judge by withholding their ballots and chase EPDRF out of power. EPDRF knows it and the people know it too.” For Zenawi, electoral politics is a business deal sealed in contract. Every ballot dropped (and stuffed) in the box is the equivalent of an individual signature in blood on an iron clad five-year contract.

Following the recent uprisings, the delirious 42-year dictator of Libya jabbered, “Muammar Gaddafi is the leader of the revolution, I am not a president to step down… This is my country. Muammar is not a president to leave his post, Muammar is leader of the revolution until the end of time." Simply stated: Muammar Gaddafi is president-for-life!

In 2003, Robert Mugabe, the self-proclaimed Hitler of Zimbabwe, shocked the world by declaring: “I am still the Hitler of the times. This Hitler has only one objective: Justice for his people. Sovereignty for his people. If that is Hitler, right, then let me be a Hitler ten-fold.” In Mein Kampf, the self-proclaimed leader (Der Fuhrer) of the “master race” wrote blacks are “monstrosities halfway between man and ape.” Africans have deep respect for their elders because they believe wisdom comes with age. Sadly, the 87 year-old Mugabe is living proof of the old saying, “There is no fool like an old fool.”

What makes African dictators so mindlessly arrogant, egotistically self-aggrandizing, delusionally contemptuous, hopelessly megalomaniacal and sociopathically homicidal? More simply: What the hell is wrong with African dictators?!?

Seeking to answer this question, I conducted an imaginary interview with Africa’s greatest, most respected and universally-loved leader, Nelson (Madiba) Rolihlahla Mandela. The answers below are quotations pieced together from President Mandela’s books, public statements, speeches, interviews, court proceedings and other publications and materials.

An Imaginary Conversation With President Nelson Mandela

Q. President Mandela, many African leaders believe they can cling to power forever by “locking up” their enemies and “banging” them in jail, shooting them in the streets and waging a sustained psychological campaign of fear and intimidation against their people. Is peaceful change possible in Africa?

A. “The government has interpreted the peacefulness of the movement as a weakness: the people’s non-violent policies have been taken as a green light for government violence. Refusal to resort to force has been interpreted by the government as an invitation to use armed force against the people without any fear of reprisals…

Neither should it ever happen that once more the avenues to peaceful change are blocked by usurpers who seek to take power away from the people, in pursuit of their own, ignoble purposes.

If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner. It always seems impossible until it is done.”

Q. Many African leaders “lead” by intimidating, arbitrarily arresting, torturing and murdering their people. What are the leadership qualities Africa needs?

A. “I always remember the axiom: a leader is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind. Lead from the back — and let others believe they are in front.

It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.

As a leader… I have always endeavored to listen to what each and every person in a discussion had to say before venturing my own opinion. Oftentimes, my own opinion will simply represent a consensus of what I heard in the discussion.

This [first democratic election for all South Africans] is one of the most important moments in the life of our country. I stand here before you filled with deep pride and joy – pride in the ordinary, humble people of this country. You have shown such calm, patient determination to reclaim this count. I stand here before you not as a prophet but as a humble servant of you, the people. Your tireless and heroic sacrifices have made it possible for me to be here today. I therefore place the remaining years of my life in your hands.”

Quitting is leading too.”

Q. Many African leaders today believe they are “supermen” who have a birthright to rule their people as they wish. Does this concern you?

A. “That was one of the things that worried me – to be raised to the position of a semi-god – because then you are no longer a human being. I wanted to be known as Mandela, a man with weaknesses, some of which are fundamental, and a man who is committed, but, nevertheless, sometimes fails to live up to expectations.”

Q. You have spent many decades in prison. Do you have any regrets for all the sacrifices you have made?

“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons will live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for. But, my Lord, if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”

Q. There are African leaders who say democracy and freedom must be delayed and rationed to the people in small portions to make way for development. Can freedom be rationed?

A. “There is no such thing as part freedom.”

Q. What is at the end of the rainbow of freedom?

A. "I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can rest only for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not yet ended.”

Q. One African leader takes great pride in comparing himself to Adolf Hitler, the iconic symbol of hate in modern human history. Why are so many African leaders filled with so much hatred, malice and bitterness?

A. “No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

Q. Do you believe an election is a contract between Africa’s iron-fisted rulers and the people?

A. "Only free men can negotiate, prisoners can’t enter in contracts."

Q. What can Africans do to liberate themselves from the scourge of dictatorship?

A. "No single person can liberate a country. You can only liberate a country if you act as a collective.”

Q. Why are so many well-off Africans afraid to take a stand against dictatorship, human rights violations and corruption on the continent?

A. "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us: it’s in everyone. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Q. How can African intellectuals contribute to the struggle for democracy, human rights and accountability in the continent?

A: "A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special."

Q. What is the one important thing young Africans need to guarantee a bright future for themselves and the continent?

A. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that a son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president…”

Q. What is you dream for Africa and humanity in general?

A. “I dream of an Africa which is in peace with itself. I dream of the realization of the unity of Africa, whereby its leaders combine in their efforts to solve the problems of this continent. I dream of our vast deserts, of our forests, of all our great wildernesses.

Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another. If there are dreams about a beautiful South Africa, there are also roads that lead to their goal. Two of these roads could be named Goodness and Forgiveness.

This must be a world of democracy and respect for human rights, a world freed from the horrors of poverty, hunger, deprivation and ignorance, relieved of the threat and the scourge of civil wars and external aggression and unburdened of the great tragedy of millions forced to become refugees."

Q. What are the choices facing the people of Africa today?

A. “The time comes in the life of any nation when there remain only two choices: submit or fight. That time has now come to South Africa. We shall not submit and we have no choice but to hit back by all means within our power in defense of our people, our future and our freedom.”

Thank you, President Mandela. May you live for a thousand years! Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika. (God Bless Africa.)

Ethiopian Youth Movement

Dear Freedom Lovers,

We are pleased to announce that the official logo for the Ethiopian Youth Movement is now ready for use. All media sources may use this logo of the movement for the press release that we recently posted and for any of our future press releases and news of activities.

The Ethiopian Youth Movement is grateful to have the unreserved and continuous support of civic groups, prominent Ethiopians, media groups, political parties and all Ethiopians.

The mission of the Ethiopian Youth Movement is the ultimate removal of the dictatorial regime through peaceful uprising and creating a successful democratic transition in Ethiopia by pressuring the opposition forces. It is an action-oriented movement that does not aspire to hold a political office.

We are a loosely organized youth group that circumferences individual activists, civic group supporters and youth wings of the opposition parties/groups that concede with our missions and values, all with the goal of achieving unity of communication and efficiency of actions. The groups involved in this movement have joined due to all these shared goals. It is important to note that being part of this movement does not in any way entail that any of the component groups have changed or must change their own separate mandates and organizational structures. This is simply the alliance of various forces for the completion of a shared mission.

Any movement that does not centre the Ethiopian youth is deemed to fail as youth compromise the majority of the population in Ethiopia, thus the importance of this group. If one examines the struggle against the current regime in the past 20 years, it becomes evident that the missing link to success has been the absence of an action oriented youth group. Many ideas and strategies were often put on paper and discussed during this long struggle but the movements have lacked dedicated foot soldiers who would execute them. The Ethiopian Youth movement provides the active effort and participation of Ethiopian youth as the missing piece of the puzzle needed for the success of long needed change in the country.

Thank you for your support!

Ethiopian Youth Movement

“In Ethiopia, It is Worse Than in Libya”Qeerricha Oromo

Hundee Dhugaa“In Ethiopia, It is Worse Than in Libya” – Hunde Dhugassa, Ex-Pres. of Students’ Unions

 “The right to your own identity and the spirit of solidarity with others are core values. These are two principles that deserve respect,” Hunde Dhugassa

Hunde Dhugassa came to Belgium from Ethiopia in 2007, without his girlfriend, whom he met just four months before he fled. Hunde i

s one of the faces of the campaign byVluchtelingenwerk Vlaanderen entitled “The makeover of life, Uninvited yet succeeded.” He was the elected leader of a student movement in his native country, but his activities were not appreciated by the regime. “Before I graduated from university, I had tens of thousands student followers,” he says. “Only when I graduated, the real problems started. In Ethiopia, it is worse than in Libya. People are arbitrarily imprisoned, tortured and disappeared.”

As a lawyer, Hunde puts justice at high priority. “And that is lacking in my homeland. Ethiopia is supposedly a democracy since the communist dictator Mengistu was ousted in 1991. In the last parliamentary elections, the ruling party won 99.6% of the seats. The resu

lt speaks a lot by itself. Yet, the government is actively supported by the West. The U.S. ambassador shared the joy of praise for the regime for the excellent election campaign.”

Not just politic

s, Western companies also bake cakes with the government led by Prime Minister Meles Zenawi. “Farmers are expropriated of their land and sold to Western companies, putting the former owners at daily laborers status. This is all done without any significant compensation. Ethiopia is rich in resources, but the country is literally sold to businesses while the locals are still hungry. Meanwhile, elites and the few political circles are swimming in luxury.”

Student Movem

ents Potential Threat to Regime
It is against the abuses that students often rebel. “In the capital Addis Ababa and elsewhere in universities, students come together from all over the country, and of all races and tribes. Those people talk to each other, discuss and exchange information. That’s always been a potential threat to the regime. Student movements are treated with suspicion.”

When I was a student

at Jimma University, the power of numbers worked. “We had democratic elections held among students, and I was elected as their chairman. Thus, I had a large constituency, and the government dared not to openly attack me. I got some freedom to criticize government policies and bring up local matters, including issues of student housing and investment in education in particular, and famine and other political issues in general. As a lawy

er, I wanted to strive for greater equity in the Ethiopian society. You know, Ethiopia is indeed a democracy on paper. We have a constitution that can be an example for many other countries on human rights. The right of every citizen is guaranteed. However, that is all on paper – it simply doesn’t apply in practice.”

North Africa and Middle East Signs of Hope
A dictatorial regime is backed by the West for the guise of stability. It has got similarities with the issue of North Africa. “In Ethiopia it is much worse. People are put in prison, tortured or disappeared. To giv

e you an idea, Ethiopians flee to anywhere – even to Libya, just before the war – because Libya has been much better than their own country. The revolutions in North Africa and the Middle East have inspired us and have given us a little hope. Be sure that the political leaders in Ethiopia are watching what is happening i

n countries like Tunisia, Egypt or Libya with frightened eyes. So are our people – apparently, for a democratic revolution.”

Hunde’s problems seriously started after he had graduated [from the Jimma University’s School of Law]. “Some of my fellow students were themselves political activists. Others, like me, wanted to work as lawyers for the fair application of the law in Ethiopia. But, I gradually saw as the threat against me by the government increased. Friends of mine had disappeared, and some ended up in ja

il. I had already got a message that it was my turn soon. Eventually, the threat was too much for me and I left, with pain in the heart. I had to leave everything and everyone behind, including my girlfriend, whom I have come to know just four months earlier. That was all a terrible decision, but it was not my choice.”

Culture Shock
Hunde also got into a real culture shock when he came to Belgium in 2007. “I came here during winter. It was cold and dark. At the refugee center,

there was a very threatening atmosphere. Sometimes, I could communicate just with gestures. You are absolutely in an uncertain environment. There was too much arbitrariness in decision making. People may or may not be granted refugee status, so it remains very unclear what criteria apply in each case. But, even today, I still find some behaviors of Belgians quite strange. Here you can find yourself seating on the train in front of someone for two hours without exchanging a word with each other. In Ethio

pia, this is unthinkable. Finally, I have to admit also that Belgium is actually a nice country. People here have a great sense of justice. How I had felt unsafe at the refugee center has changed now; I feel safe in this country. That feeling is priceless.”

European Law
Meanwhile, Hunde has also completed his university degree in Belgium. In Ghent University, he has studied European law. “I have learned a lot from it. African countries have a lot to learn from European integrati

on. We should see how things are handled with justice, and how the rule of law governs. This is what we, in Africa, especially in Ethiopia, are missing. We have resources, a young pop

ulation willing to build its future, but we lack political leaders who want to help their country move forward instead of themselves. Unfortunately, Europe also uses a double logic. In Africa, it supports leaders who continually and brutally violate human rights, the same rights that they respect for their own people and the same rights that hold paramount importance of their value.”

Hunde, as a lawye

r, follows with great interest the political agony that Belgium finds itself in. “It may surprise you, but the whole contrast between Dutch and French speakers is familiar to me. We have more or less the same history. Ethiopia is a very diverse country

with dozens of groups and different languages. Even if Oromia is the most populous and resourceful area, Oromos remain marginalized for the last one hundred years. But, the resistance has started and has grown to opposition, some of them are armed, for their right to language, culture and for the overall implementation of self-determination. But, at the same time, the Oromo quest for justice and freedom has been regarded as separatist. Though I don’t count myself so radical, I find it difficult discuss

ing issue around this. The right to your own identity and the spirit of solidarity with others are core values. These are two principles that deserve respect. I have no ready-made solution. Wha

t I really like is the debate to continue however difficult it might be. The country continues to remain fully the case. Here, people can still safeguard their rights, respect the law and respect each other despite the political deadlock. I wish this had been possible in Ethiopia.”

The situation in Ethiopian is much worse than in Libya:
