Large group protests the treatment of Oromo people in Ethiopia


 

A group is marching today in downtown Saskatoon to  draw attention to violence against the Oromo people in Ethiopia.

Ethiopian government forces killed more than 80 people in protests in the country’s Oromia region.

Ethiopia’s prime minister apologized this week for the deaths resulting from the anti-government protests in the Oromia region but accused the protesters of being responsible.

The group, called the Saskatoon Oromo Self-Help Association Corporation, marched downtown and protested outside of City Hall.

“There has been rampage violence and and reckless mass murder of the Oromo people by the country’s militarily armed police forces and security agents,” the group said in a press release.

The group is “appalled” by the treatment of the Oromo people in Ethiopia.
