Message from Dr. Tsegaye Ararssa to Ato Abiy Ahmed

This is a message directed personally to #Abiy_Ahmed.

Never mind your bogus charges. After all, it has been long coming. Your henchmen have long been calling for it, and in fact, they have been calling for our assassination and for attacking our families, somehow hoping that they will silence us. In your shamelessness, you went as far as directly speaking to the management of Facebook to disable my accounts–as if that will save you from your inevitable demise. You have done worse. (We will leave those to history–which is already knocking on your door.) All that, my friend, is nothing in the light of what our people endured under your madness. በየቀኑ ስንገደል ለኖርን ለኛ፣ ይሄ ሁሉ ምንም ትርጉም የለውም።But now that it came, it will last only for days. Trust me: we will outlast you. In fact, we will outlive you. We will render justice–even to you.And then, we will have the last laugh!Fare thee well, mad man. Fare thee well.With you gone, surely, the worst of our times shall have been gone! #You_squandered_your_chances! #You_lost_it_big_time.#You_now_belong_to_the_past_officially! #People_power!

“Police are allowed to seize money from a person who has deposited more than one million birr in his house,” the prime minister said in a statement three days ago. Following this statement, looting intensified throughout Oromia. The regular police and special police forces are stopping public transport vehicles on the road, searching the passengers and looting their money. There is no difference in the amount of money the police is looting. A person with three thousand birr is robbed. Five thousand birr will be looted. Ten thousand birr will be looted. Twenty thousand birr will be looted. Fifty thousand birr will be looted. We are even hearing that someone has been robbed of a thousand birr. 1000 Birr = 27 US Dollar

The robbery does not take place in one place. Security forces in all Oromia zones and districts are looting the public in broad daylight. The government security forces are robbing people who drive public transport with a small amount of money for personal use.

Following the Prime Minister’s statement, looting intensified throughout Oromia. አስደንጋጭ ዝርፊያ በኦሮሚያ

Oromia (Finfinnee): OLF Press Statement (13 September 2020): Ibsa Adda Bilisummaa Oromoo (Fulbaana 13, 2020) September 14, 2020

OLF Press Statement[VOL – September 13,2020] The Oromo Liberation Front passionately believes that sustainable and permanent solution to Ethiopia’s complex political problems could only be attained with an All-Inclusive democracy and participation of all political forces. To this effect, OLF had been working with various political forces including those in power of ruling the country and opposition groups to create a national consensus to solve the political crises in Ethiopia.

Since, the OLF moved its leadership to the country on 15th September 2018 it committed itself to work with honesty and integrity for the success of the peace process that lead to inclusive true democracy. Although OLF was not happy on how the transition to democracy in Ethiopia was handled by PM Abiy Ahmed’s government from the very beginning, we patiently dealt with the situations with the hope that it would be improved; but not without price. However, the Political reform started in 2018 have faced huge challenges both internally within the ruling party as well as externally with the opposition groups. The situations are getting worse from time to time and currently it reached at stage where everything is out of control leading the government to collapse. Now there is very alarming instability and fractured political prospect in the country and the public have lost hope and trust from the ruling party.

We observed a clear ‘’constitutional crisis” in the country and the party in power has fallen short of its initial promises and has been using the government organs responsible to protect the Constitution towards its own political benefits. Detaining leaders and members of opposition political parties and gross human rights violations is a day to day job of the Government security forces. Despite the atrocities, OLF and other opposition parties have continued to express their willingness to support the reform, individually as well as jointly.In addition to our individual proposals, the OLF is involved in different fora of opposition parties to support the democratic transition. One of the fora was the Alliance for Multi-nation Federalism (Alliance) that aim to provide joint support to the transition and democratic process. In April 2020, this Alliance provided comprehensive recommendations to the government on the transitional process. The recommendations clearly set out how to continue with the reform towards political settlement based on consensus and spelled out how stable democratic governance could be formed through a step- by- step process.The recommendations were drafted within the framework of the Ethiopian constitution and considered the fallacies of the change process and the behavior of the ruling party; the current instability and security issues; and the human rights violations. In general, we analyzed the challenges of the reform system in both directions (the ruling party and the oppositions) and proposed workable recommendation that will be implemented jointly by the ruling party and the opposition groups. The proposed recommendations highlighted to have binding political convention that enables other political parties to take part and to ensure proper oversight of the change process in order to build genuine democracy and help create sustainable peace in the country and would ensure livelihood improvement of citizens in which the Alliance and its member organizations, as well as all other forces would play their part. The proposed binding political convention include the establishment of:

1. Council of Foreign Relation to inspire domestic trust and gain international legitimacy.

2. Coordinated National Security Council for monitoring the implementation of the Security arrangements in regions.

3. Democratic Building Institution to protect the autonomy and authority of independent judiciary, electoral board and independent media that could hold the executives accountable.

4. A body that resolve conflict and disparity between State building and Nation building to create national consensus on resolving outstanding political problems.

5. A body that would monitor the implementation of the convention to limit the quest of any further extension to the election and set out appropriate election date. We also indicated the implementation of the recommendations including the details of responsibilities, system, and mechanism by which these parties would operate.

We believe implementing these proposed recommendations will help to build democracy and help create sustainable peace in the country. It also addresses the security issues in regional states among themselves as well as the disparity between the government and opposition parties and differences among the oppositions themselves as well as address issue of contradictory stand on “State-Building” and “Nation-Building.

Therefore, we strongly suggest that the Ethiopian government should reconsider these recommendations as we believe it will resolve the current widespread crises. Also, we would like to reiterate our willingness to play our part in genuine democratic process if stakeholders discharge their responsibilities.

In this instance, we would like to appeal to the international community to take serious action to safe Ethiopia from constitutional crises and total chaos. Particularly, we strongly appeal to the African Union’s (AU), the UN bodies, EU, and other international community to urge the Ethiopian government to engage with negotiation with opposition parties and jointly set out a road map to all-inclusive democracy through power sharing transitional government that will prepare and implement free and fair elections.

We praise the African Union’s (AU) role in leading and promoting dialogue-centered approach to conflict prevention and resolution in many African countries to maintain peaceful and secure Africa. We believe that the current crises in Ethiopia demands, more than any other entity, serious attention from the AU. In accordance with the article 4(h) of the Constitutive Act of the AU the Union has a right to intervene in a member state to prevent grave violations of human rights.

The national and international evidence clearly shows the continuous gross violations of human rights are committed by Ethiopian Regime on Ethiopian civilians for the last 27 years and in unprecedented scale in the last two years. In addition, there are Organized and strong armed forces emerging in most regional states that threaten the general governance and bring about security crises throughout the country. Given the current crises and fast-moving potential conflicts and threats, the AU must intervene and excel its responsibility sooner than later. Also we would like to stress that the current situation in Ethiopia not only disintegrate the second largest country in Africa but also one of the biggest impediments to achieve AU Aspiration 4 of Agenda 2063 which aspires for “A peaceful and secure Africa”. Moreover, being Finfinnee (Addis Ababa) is the seat of FDRE, capital city of Oromia and the seat of AU headquarters, the security of the AU office and safety of more than 2000 employees working there must be taken into account in line with current peace and instability issues Ethiopia and in particular in Oromia.

We realize the role of UN in averting crises in the world and would like the UN bodies including UN Security Council (UNSC), the UN Human Rights Council, and others play their part in averting the current crises in Ethiopia. Particularly, the UNSC who has primary responsibility, under the UN Charter, for the maintenance of international peace and security, should not give a blind eye when one of the second largest country in Africa is encountered with political, social, human rights and economic crises and eventually collapse.

We appreciate the leading role the EU is playing in promoting economic integration, peace, and stability in Ethiopia, whilst supporting the implementation of national reform agenda and forming diversified development cooperation with Ethiopia. However, the Political reform started in 2018 have faced huge challenges, miss managed by PM Abiy and collapsed. This will halt the EU partnership and all the EU ambitions to Ethiopia. So, we believe that the EU will intervene with its capacities to avert the huge political crises that its key partners in the region is facing now. Therefore:

1. We call up on the AU to intervene into the crises in Ethiopia based on its constitutive right stated in article 4(h) and other supporting articles of the Union.

2. We call up on the UNSC to take appropriate measures in accordance with its obligations stated in Article 39 and 41 of the UN constitutive act as the threats to peace and security is clearly evidenced in Ethiopia. We also appeal to UNHRC to act accordingly to address gross human rights violations in Ethiopia.

3. We call upon the EU to give serious attention to the instability in Ethiopia, especially Oromia, as this is huge conflict of a century and immensely affect the peace and stability in the horn of Africa, and affect the diplomatic and development partnerships of European countries with Ethiopia.

4. We call upon all Political Parties in Ethiopia to seriously take our proposal and work with us to avert looming and eminent chaos. We hereby also call upon Independent Oromo Political Forces and the General Oromo people to prepare for Transitional Government of Oromia to avert any form of political and Security crisis. The OLF will continue to consult stakeholders on this position at both levels of government.

የኦሮሞ ነጻነት ግንባር መግለጫ (መስከረም 13, 2020ዓም)[SBO – Fulbaana 13,2020] የኦሮሞ ነፃነት ግንባር(ኦነግ) ለኢትዮጵያ ውስብስብ የፖለቲካ ችግሮች ኣስተማማኝና ዘላቂ መፍትሄ ሊገኝ የሚችለው ሁሉን በሚያካትት ዲሞክራሲና በሁሉም የፖለቲካ ኃይሎች ተሳትፎ ብቻ ነው የሚል ቅን እምነት ኣለው። ይህንንም ለማድረግ ኦነግ አገሪቱን የማስተዳደር ስልጣን ያላቸውን እና የተቃዋሚ ቡድኖችን ጨምሮ ከተለያዩ የፖለቲካ ኃይሎች ጋር በመሆን በኢትዮጵያ የፖለቲካ ቀውሶችን ለመፍታት የጋር ብሔራዊ መግባባት ለመፍጠር ሲሠራ ቆይቷል። ኦነግ ከፍተኛ ኣመራሩን ወደ ሀገር ካዛወረ እ.ኤ.አ. ከመስከረም 15 ቀን 2018ዓም ወዲህ ወደ ሁሉን አቀፍ እውነተኛ ዴሞክራሲ የሚያመራውን የሰላም ሂደት ስኬታማ ለማድረግ በሐቀኝነትና በታማኝነት ለመስራት ወሰነ።ምንም እንኳን ከመጀመሪያው ጀምሮ በኢትዮጵያ የዴሞክራሲ ሽግግር ኣያያዝ በጠቅላይ ሚኒስትር አብይ አህመድ መንግስት እንዴት እንደተከናወነ ኣስመልክቶ ኦነግ ደስተኛ ባይሆንም፣ ይሻሻላል ብለን ተስፋ በማድረግ ሁኔታዎችን በትዕግስት ተቋቁመናል፥ ያለ ዋጋ ግን አይደለም። ሆኖም እ.ኤ.አ. በ2018ዓም የተጀመረው የፖለቲካ ለውጥ ከውስጥ ከገዥው ፓርቲ እንዲሁም ከውጭ ከተቃዋሚ ቡድኖች ግዙፍ ተግዳሮቶች አጋጠመው። ሁኔታዎቹ ከጊዜ ወደ ጊዜ እየተባባሱ በመሄድ በአሁኑ ወቅት ሁሉም ነገር ከቁጥጥር ውጭ ወደሆነበት ደረጃ በመድረስ መንግስትን ወደ ውድቀት እያመራው ይገኛል። አሁን በአገሪቱ ውስጥ በጣም እጅግ ኣሳሳቢ አለመረጋጋትና የተሰበረ ፖለቲካ ተስፋ ይስተዋላል፥ ህዝቡ ከገዢው ፓርቲ ተስፋና እምነት አጥቷል። በአገሪቱ ውስጥ ግልጽ ‘’የሕገ-መንግስታዊ ቀውስ’’ የተመለከትን ሲሆን፡ በስልጣን ላይ ያለው ፓርቲ መጀመሪያ ከገባቸው ቃላት ማሽቆለቆሉና ህገ-መንግስቱን የማስጠበቅ ሃላፊነት ያለባቸውን የመንግስት ኣካላት ለራሱ የፖለቲካ ጥቅም ሲገለገልባቸው ቆይቷል። የተቃዋሚ ፖለቲካ ፓርቲዎች አመራሮችንና አባላትን ማሰርና ከፍተኛ የሰብአዊ መብት ጥሰቶች የመንግሥት የፀጥታ ኃይሎች የዕለት ተዕለት ሥራ ናቸው። ምንም እንኳን የጭካኔ ድርጊቶች ቢኖሩም፥ ኦነግ እና ሌሎች ተቃዋሚ ፓርቲዎች ለውጡን በተናጥል እንዲሁም በጋራ ለመደገፍ ያላቸውን ፍላጎት መግለፃቸውን ቀጥለዋል።በተናጠል ካለው የመፍትሄ ሀሳብ በተጨማሪ የኦሮሞ ነጻነት ግንባር ዲሞክራሲያዊ ሽግግሩን ለመደገፍ በተለያዩ የተቃዋሚ ፓርቲዎች መድረክ ላይ ተሳትፏል። ከመድረኮቹ መካከል ለሽግግሩ እና ለዴሞክራሲያዊ ሂደቱ የጋራ ድጋፍ ለመስጠት ያለመው ትብብር ለህብረ-ብሔር ዴሞክራሲያዊ ፌዴራሊዝም (ትብብር) ኣንዱ ነበር። እ.ኤ.አ. በሚያዝያ 2020ዓም ይህ ትብብር በሽግግር ሂደት ላይ ለመንግስት ሁሉን ኣቀፍ የመፍትሔ ምክረ-ሃሳቦችን ኣቅርቧል። የመፍትሄ ምክረ-ሃሳቦቹ በመግባባት ላይ ለተመርኮዘ የፖለቲካ እልባት በለውጡ እንዴት መቀጠል እንደሚቻልና የተረጋጋ ዴሞክራሲያዊ አስተዳደር እንዴት በደረጃ-በደረጃ ሂደት ሊመሰረት እንደሚችል በግልጽ ኣስቀምጧል።የመፍትሄ ሃሳቦቹ በኢትዮጵያ ህገ-መንግስት ማዕቀፍ ውስጥ የተቀረፁ ሲሆን የለውጡ ሂደት ስህተቶችና የገዥው ፓርቲ ባህሪይ፥ አሁን ያሉ የአለመረጋጋትና የፀጥታ ጉዳዮች፥ እና የሰብአዊ መብት ጥሰቶችን ግምት

Dear Sir or Madam,

RE: Undeserving speaker at The Green Recovery virtual event, 16-17 September 2020

We, the undersigned member organizations of the Global Oromia Forum, consisting of 41 Oromo Civic, Human Rights, and Religious organizations, wish to congratulate and support the Project Syndicate for organizing this timely event focusing on the most important theme impacting the continued survival of our planet. Climate change is no longer science fiction but the most consequential human activity-caused episode challenging our very existence. If we fail to take drastic actions today to decelerate or reverse the deteriorating trend, it is no longer if, but when the continued survival of life on earth as we know it will cease to exist. We believe the Green Recovery initiative is a step in the right direction to this end, the reason why we believe the planned virtual event is both critical and timely.

We also note the list of distinguished luminaries and global leaders lined up to share their wisdom and experience as keynote speakers, but with one particular caveat. The caveat, in our humble opinion supported by hard facts and figures detailed below, is the inclusion of an undeserving speaker, the Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Dr. Abiy Ahmed. We strongly believe that his participation will bring unwanted scrutiny to the conference because of his records on gross human rights violations. Yes, the prime minister is a Nobel laureate, one of the criteria we understand the Project Syndicate considered to invite him as a keynote speaker at this event. However, there are so much compelling evidence that, in hindsight, suggests the most undeserving person got the most coveted prize in the first place. Don’t take our words on this, just ask the Nobel Peace Prize Committee if they would have bestowed the prestigious prize on Dr. Abiy had they known what they know today. They still are answering for the decision they made and have to defend it. He should not be honored once again by featuring him at this global event along with so many deserving and distinguished speakers.

In our view, here is why Dr. Abiy should not be rewarded with the honor of sharing the stage with these renowned world leaders and professionals with impeccable characters for, as we shall show below, he has reneged on his promise of transitioning Ethiopia to democracy, he is a shameless plagiarizer, and he is known to have changed his biography so often to fit what he believes his audiences would like to hear.

Dr. Abiy served as a senior member of the Tigrayan Peoples Liberation Front (TPLF) dominated regime that terrorized Ethiopians for 27+years, with a record of hundreds of thousands of people killed, maimed, and disappeared during his tenure as Head of the Security Intelligence arm of the regime. In 2018, when the TPLF members of the regime were forced to retreat to Tigray, following sustained Oromo youth-led popular uprising for over 4+years, Mr. Abiy and his team came to power promising to transition the country into a genuine functional democracy, has officially apologized for the destruction of so many lives and squandering the wealth of the country. During the first year, he was indeed a trailblazer; signed a peace agreement with Eritrea, lifted so many draconian laws that stifled human rights and free speech, invited exiled opposition parties and leaders to return home and participate in a peaceful democratic process, promised to hold free and fair elections, open up the economy to allow increased private sector participation and the list goes on; actions that earned him unequivocal domestic and international support and a Nobel Prize for Peace and accolade of praises. Many believed that the Nobel Prize was a down payment for peace.

No sooner than he received the prize, however, Prime Minster realized that Ethiopians, especially Oromos he claimed to have represented as a blood relative resulting in his appointment as Prime Minister, unequivocally prefer opposition parties as their true leaders. With that realization, the Prime Minister and his team instantly halted in its tracks the so-called change they introduced and reneged on his promise to transition Ethiopia to democracy. They immediately launched a vicious war on unarmed individuals, organizations, and the grassroots that deposed the previous regime and paved the way for the Prime Minister and his team to come to power. His supporters assassinated a prominent Oromo artist, Hachaaluu Hundessa, who inspired and mobilized millions of Oromo youth against the previous tyrannical regime. During Oromia wide demonstrations that followed Hachaaluu’s assassination, the state security forces killed hundreds of demonstrators, jailed most opposition party leaders and activists, closed or destroyed opposition parties’ offices and properties, carried out extrajudicial killings of the Oromo public suspected of being supporters of the opposition, closed Oromo media houses, jailed their staff and management, and looted their properties.

As documented in multiple Amnesty International reports on Human rights status in Ethiopia (Amnesty International Report on Human Rights Violations, May 29, 2020; https://www.amnesty.org/en/countries/africa/ethiopia/report-ethiopia/), the Prime Minister and the state he is presiding over are waging state-sanctioned terror on Oromos and oppressed nations and nationalities in Ethiopia; the reason why he doesn’t deserve nor should he be rewarded with the honor of sharing a stage with globally recognized world leaders and professionals. Moreover, Dr. Abiy is also intellectually dishonest, widely known as a prolific plagiarizer of other people’s works and speeches verbatim (https://somalilandchronicle.com/2018/08/26/dr-plagiarizer-ethiopian-prime-minister-plagiarizes-henry-kissinger/). He is an infamous impersonator, having repeatedly claimed varying versions of his parents’ ethnic background that seem to change depending on his audience’s prevalent ethnicity and his perception of what that audience wants to hear about his origin of ethnicity. According to BBC report published on October 11. 2019 (https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-43567007), he claimed his father is a Muslim Oromo and his mother is a Christian Amhara (also quoted in the Nobel Prize Institute’s biography of the Prime Minister). He has repeatedly confirmed this claim in multiple interviews he gave to various media platforms available on YouTube. He is also on record, claiming both his father and mother are Oromos in an interview he granted to the Oromo Broadcasting Network TV as recent as July 15, 2020 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZATZ5Q-EyE&ab_channel=OBNOromiyaa%5BOromiaBroadcastingNetwork%5D). In our opinion, allowing Dr. Abiy to speak at this event risks tarnishing the good name and image of Project Syndicate, diminishes that stature of the event, and possibly disseminate plagiarized messages on this very important topic. We thus kindly request Project Syndicate urgently to rescind the invitation to Dr. Abiy Ahmed to prevent any detraction from the real issue of the conference and also because this could be construed as unwittingly enabling a murderous tyrant who did not and is not valuing human life.

Allowing Dr. Abiy to appear on this world stage, to speak to the environment, is tantamount to ignoring the death of those children, the old and young people, and hundreds of thousands incarcerated in COVID-19 infested jails, and those young girls being raped daily by his soldiers as a deterrent. All this ongoing death and destruction is due to Abiy’s official shoot-to-kill policy to deter any kind of protest from his tyranny. One must also examine the inconsistencies of this man’s educational records to know what a master manipulator he has been throughout his life. The fundamental question is this, what kind of wisdom about climate change can this despicable, intellectually bankrupt, and a profoundly flawed human being can offer at such a global forum? If this invitation stands, he will use it to polish his image that has been tarnished beyond any repair, regardless. We sincerely hope and passionately urge that in virtue of the above, Project Syndicate will reconsider its invitation and dissociate itself from a leader of one of the most murderous regimes the world has seen in recent years. If not for anything else, just to preserve the image and credibility of the organization. Attached is a graphic snapshot of the atrocities committed by Abiy’s security forces against innocent Oromo citizens.

Potential Macroeconomic Implication of World Bank Decline of USD 2 billion Loan to Ethiopia September 6, 2020

During such time as this, when the global economy is at the cross road and that of the LDCs’ economy including of Ethiopia is terribly impacted by multitudes of challenges such as conflicts, displacement, flooding, locust infestation, COVID-19 pandemic and others, the decline by WB to give a lone amounting to USD 2 billion will have multiple economic impacts. Here are some of the potential impacts:- Deteriorates Debt Repayment Capacity: Such soft loan from the WB/IMF/AfDB or similar financial institution usually improves nation’s capacity to pay their commercial debts to such country as China.

The inability to pay own debt will have global level credit worthiness impact;- Slowdown import dependent industrial operation: Ethiopia’s industries are largely import dependent, whereby the largest share of the row materials are imported. Hence, during this time when the country is suffering from foreign currency shortage, the lack of such loan will impact the industries significantly;- Decline in Importation of Essential Item: the country is already overheated by the shortage of foreign exchange to import essential times for domestic consumption.

As a result the price rice during the month of July 2020 has gotten closer to 23%. Hence, absence of loan will aggravate the situation and rate of inflation could further increase;- Challenge in the Completion of Mega projects: The country is said of implementing mega projects such as sugar factories, irrigation schemes, hydro power, infrastructural development and many other. Such projects heavily rely on loan from the big global financial institutions. The WB’s decline of this loan would then mean a big challenge for the country to progress in the implementation of this mega projects- Challenge to Maintain Sufficient National Reserve: in the absence of sufficient and affordable loans, the country might resort to the depletion of its national reserve to meet critical demands.

Whereas, the country’s national reserve is already at lower level, which barely covers 2.5 months need of the country;- Challenge to Attract FDI: in country where there is liquidity crunch in terms of foreign currency, the probability for FDI to comer to the country is very low. That is because the investors need sufficient foreign current for importation as well as maintaining portion of their earning oversea.

These are few of the macroeconomic impacts of the current WB’s decline of the $2 billion. As such, the impact will be on all sectors and also on individual to the national economy.

The political and economic costs of pursuing political opponents through the courts are far greater than the benefits**************************************************************

It has been more than two months since Jawar Mohammed and several other leading members of the Oromo opposition were detained based on bogus accusations. More than two months after the high profile arrests, the govt is yet to bring formal charges against them bc it as no case that serves the gov’t political agenda while also meeting the requirements of criminal law. The three people formally charged thus far – Dajanee Xaafaa, Mastawardii Tamam, and Mishaa Cirrii – were charged for a crime unrelated to the events used as a justification for the arrests.Weaponising the justice system to pursue political adversaries is is politically counter-productive and economically ruinous. Over the last two months, there have been anti-Abiy rallies in major cities across Europe, the USA, Canada and Australia. In Oromia, we have witnessed a groundswell of protests, particularly by Oromo women. These are extremely damaging to the image of the country and a PM that won the Nobel Peace Prize only a year ago. These protests are also economically ruinous both in the short and the long term. Detaining political opponents in a country that is tearing itself apart can only complicate its structural uncertainties and deepens its explosive national and subnational faultlines. Put simply, it would make eventual political settlement impossible.I believe the PM understands that the political and economic risks (costs) of pursuing political opponents through the courts are far greater than its benefits. No reasonable person can believe that the government can lock these individuals behind bars and ensure peace and stability while millions of Oromos are saying: “No Peace without Justice”. The anger that we see on the streets both in Ethiopia and abroad would only grow in scale and magnitude if the government persists with these trials and its anti-democratic move to impose a unilateral political settlement for the country. Abiy Ahmed can and must release all political prisoners and return to dialogue. It is the only way to save Ethiopia from the abyss.

Assimilation of the last centuries have failed and peoples are becoming self-conscious and demanding for restoration of their lost identity

By Ibsaa Guutama

Bravo Tigray! You are setting example of defending human and peoples’ rights. At the moment Oromiyaa, her neighbors and Tigray are under attack by chauvinist Nafxanyaa system hopefuls. We all know united Oromiyaa is the Great Flood that no mountain kan hide. We have seen Tigray how it can turn into a thunderbolt for human rights violators when its rights are infringed. Assimilation of the last centuries have failed and peoples are becoming self-conscious and demanding for restoration of their lost identity. This is not the creation of TPLF as alleged but natural development of things. In short things are not as they were a hundred years ago. The great Agawu, Qimaant, Wayixoo, Shinaashaa etc. are awake. Therefore, a soul-searching is required from fans of the old order.

We wish peace and success for people of Tigray. There are no statutes of limitation for capital crime. But current issues have priority to be tackled. Oromo have issues with first generation TPLF/EPRDF. However, issues they have with OPDO/EPRDF is more current. TPLF is now far removed from Oromiyaa proper and therefore not of immediate threat. The real threat is neo-EPRDF, in the name of PP (Bilxiginnaa).

Bilxiginnaa has now taken Federal law into own hand and suspended functioning Federation. It is waging genocide on the Oromo people and the state of Oromiyaa is under military rule and is in chaos. On the other hand, TPLF and the people of Tigray are running election using their constitutional right; the right which was also given to Oromiyaa and other peoples by the constitution.

Therefore, Oromo have no reason to oppose TPLF for practicing legitimate right, which in principle they also cherish had their power not usurped by OPDO. As for issues Oromo have with first generation of TPLF for which the state of Tigray has to be accountable, it can be handled in civilized manner when dusts settle. If because of this Tigray election Nafxanyaa led by PP declares war, no Oromo or soldiers from old colonies should spill their blood to muffle constitutional rights of a people. It has to be settled between the northern neighbors which might have claims against each other if any? The election in Tigray should rather serve as a beacon for the rest of nations, nationalities and peoples.

Wound inflicted by current Nafxanyaa is fresh and has to be given more attention than the scar left from old wound. The attack on Tigray from any quarter because of the election is an attack on democracy, human rights and freedom. All freedom loving peoples ought to stand with the people of Tigray during this trying period of Federalism.

Let freedom and democracy flourish in Africa! Federalism or independence!

Oromiyaan haa jiraattu!

A choice without alternative left: Commitment to Kaayyoo Oromummaa and our determination to fulfil it without wavering is our only guarantee to independence. Our people’s persistence in the face of killings, tortures and imprisonment at present is the beginning of that determination. We follow true history or follow no history. Greek historians’ Aethiopia refers to all people different from their complexion, which for them looked like burned face. That seem nickname for the whole black race. The Ethiopia, Amaaraa elites brag about of forming is as they said their own creation; otherwise there is no country that called itself Ethiopia in history. The Amaaraa are entitled to their Ethiopia. Problem comes when they want to impose it on others with all the paraphernalia, designed by them. And when they claim history connected with that nickname. Many impliedly seem to have agreed to close file of old Amaaraa Ethiopia and open a new one for nations, nationalities and peoples’, new and different Ethiopia that could include all that were under old Ethiopia’s empire. That was what was meant by the Federal Constitution as starting point for unity with all its short comings. What matters is not who made the constitution but if it reflects forward looking dreams of the majority. But the way government forces came out committing genocide and Nafxanyaa system hopeful’s simultaneous tirade and demeaning insults to Oromo nation leave no space for cooperation. Oromo have broken out from vassalage of Nafxanyaa system by own struggle. They have only nations they live together as neighbors and have no one to carry on their head. Be it to live as independent or by creating relations with others will be based only on their own will. One who does not accept that is an enemy. An alternative to Federal constitution presented is the old obsolete chauvinistic reactionary Nafxanyaa colonial system in which superiority of one nation, one language, one religion, one flag alone is recognized. That is what descendants of old Nafxanyaa of all walks of life and level of education entertain. So far, no rational person among them has presented oneself to listen others viewpoints in decent civilized manner. Where are all those calling themselves progressives during the Ethiopian Revolution? Where are they when their people needed the right leadership, not Frankenstein Monsters? Now, it seems the chance of forming new Ethiopia with the Amaaraa is exhausted. Because for them the new means revising the old. The choice left is only to renew the struggle for independence and declare own freedom. Each nation and nationality are responsible for protecting of human rights in their territories. Volunteers believing in diversity, equality, freedom and respect for each other’s interest could form union fitting their desire. The continued killings and abuses of unarmed Oromo and all other peoples and harassment of nations and nationalities has to stop. Unconditionally release political prisoner. Those in power and their running dogs cannot escape being accountable for all the consequence of human rights abuse and genocide. The Oromo have no alternative other that taking the final step towards national self-determination which includes independence. Oromiyaan haa jiraattu

Excerpts from Jawar Mohammed’s speech in court 04 Sep 2020

Finfinne Intercept

What I find alarming even more so than the individual charges levelled against us is the state of the overall justice system in this country. Allow me to address this not just to the bench presiding over this case but also to the second-man in charge of the Attorney General’s Office who is present amongst us in this courtroom today. The justice system is under the total control of the ruling party and has utterly failed due to political interference by those in positions of power. I would like for you to understand this. It is evident from the prosecution’s request for the court to grant anonymity for witnesses so they can testify against us from behind-the-curtain that this is a political trial. And the fact one of the witnesses was dropped today and that four others were dropped the other day further demonstrates that the entire exercise is politically motivated. I am not saying this because I’m terrified of prison. When I made the decision to join politics, it’s with the full knowledge that such eventualities might arise and with the conviction to accept any consequences. Prison is an elementary challenge. I’m ready to die for my people and for the cause I believe in. If I die today, I go with a peace of mind and a smile on my face. I won’t have any regrets. I’m pleading with you not out of the personal desire to get a favourable ruling on this case but because I want the country’s judicial system to improve for the sake of future generations. This reminds me of the ordeals the earliest Oromo nationalist movement leaders had to go through inside the courtrooms of Imperial Ethiopia [and the death penalty they were given] 40 years ago; trailblazers such as Captain Mamo Mezemir who graduated with great honours from the then imperial military academy. What is happening to the current crop of leaders (potentially his grand children) today is no different. This is disgraceful. Political differences are resolved through dialogue, not in a litigation before a court of law. This exercise helps neither our politics nor the country’s judicial system. On the contrary, it will further worsen the political polarisation, courts will lose public trust and this will precipitate the disintegration of the country. All evidences indicate that that is where we’re heading. The current Prime Minister had apologised for putting freedom advocates through a reign of terror for 27 years in contravention of the constitution and the laws of the country, and had admitted that that was a wrong path to follow. However, what we’re witnessing is a continuation of the same old unlawful practice. I maintain that political differences cannot be resolved in a court of law and that no resolution will come out of such futile undertakings. I urge you to stop wasting the resources and energy of everyone involved. You can jail us as you please, free us as you please or hang us if you deem it necessary but I implore you to stop the blatant mockery of justice and the law. I thank you! –Translated from the Afaan Oromo version originally published by Oromo Political Prisoners Defence Team.

Oromia: Dr Birhanu Nega alone displaced and took the farmland of 217 Oromo farmers household. That means he alone displaced and grabbed the farmland of more than 1000 Oromos using the racist and anti Oromo regime. September 5, 2020

Dr Birhanu Nega alone displaced and took the farmland of 217 Oromo farmers household. That means he alone displaced and grabbed the farmland of more than 1000 Oromos using the racist and anti Oromo regime. Could these Oromo victims get justice from the racist Neftagna regime? Not at all. Over the last 15 years alone, Addis Ababa expanded three fold by displacing about 1,500,000 Oromo people. Literally, the racist and anti Oromo regime committed genocide on our people. Still, system driven, land grab and the genocidal mission against the Oromo people continued in the name of development, religion, business etc. It is forgone conclusion that the Oromo people cannot seek justice from the racist regime. Then, what type of political discourse could an Oromo hold with the racist system that calls an Oromo who speak about the equality of the Oromo people in that country an extremist, terrorist and so forth? None! From now on, the Oromo people should not fool themselves and wast any time by talking about democracy, election, law etc for there is none! Oromos who talk about these nonexistent things should also stop lying and giving false hope to the Oromo people. It is critically important to know that unless and until the racist Neftagna System is defeated, subdued and dismantled, let alone equality, the Oromo people will not be considered as human beings in Ethiopia. These dehumanization of the Oromo!? We have all seen it. We are all living it! Therefore, let all Oromos focus only on organizing and mobilizing the Oromo people to defeat, subdue and dismantle the racist Neftagna System!

Amhara businessmen Belayneh Kindie and Worku Aytenew took 250 hectares of land from the hearts of Addis through direct involvement of the retard. Haile G/S took free land from South, Oromia and Amhara in the name of building resort. These three Amhara looters are behind all of Addis land grab and why they are supporting this retard. Oromo businessmen Dinku Deyasa and Gemshu Beyene are chased away from their mother land. Gemshu is still in Oromia but Dinku was attacked by mafias several times. It is so sad that Oromo’s resources are looted by these crooked Amharas but Oromos are killed on their soil because they born Oromo. This madness must be stopped by the blood of Oromos. This struggle must be the binding one. You have well prepared leaders and there will be no risk of power sabotage afterwards. In this short time, peaceful struggle aimed at deteriorating the mafia’s economy must be strongly executed. This is a bitter struggle. Military is told to shoot anyone on the road so that direct confrontation is risky. However, self defense is legal whenever the military is attacking you while you are protesting peacefully. Military has no legal ground to kill peaceful protesters. It is beyond its mandate and should be taught a desirable lesson like of Tegarus. Military seems to be brave on Oromos because they knew that Oromos are peaceful. Effective road closure surrounding Addis will bring down this mafia. Never carry gun or other artileries. Just peacefully. You will definitely win and determine your fate. Amharas who did not support this mafia are just your families and protect them taking any respobsibilities. However, any nation and nationalities who support this mafia have to learn some lessons. All lessons should of economic deterioration.

EZEMA and Urban Land – Addis Ababa

By Faisal Roble, August 31, 2020,

EZEMA, a political party in Ethiopia that is birthed out of remnants of EPRP, All-Amhara Organization, Medhin led by a fascist individual known as Goshu Wolde, and remnants of former landlords once again betrayed the ongoing revolution; first it stood by when Oromo comrades were killed and jailed; and then it temporarily ended up forming what could be a short unholy alliance with PM Abiy’s Prosperity Party (PP). The two joined hips not because they love each other but because they want to break the Oromo spirit. Their unholy unification is based on the ever-elusive pan-Ethiopianims – a crude ideology that sacrifices regional and local histories in favor of a never substantiated Solomonic history – a history that is more of a myth than a real history based on the histories of the peoples of Ethiopia.

To cement its image as the guardian of a radical version of Ethiopianism negotiated on the concept of Andinet-fusuminet, a narrative that seeks to protect the left-over of an old oppressive system, EZEMA has hastily released what could be perceived as its land policy. In it, it falters on the question of urban land of Addis Ababa. Reading EZEMA’s 15-pages report, I understand that there is an attempt to delineate the distribution of about hundreds of thousands of acres of vacant suburban land and the distribution of 96,000 condominiums. It would have been a high toll if their study was not politically charged.

EZEMA makes an accusation without showing any proof that a large portion of the 96,000 condominium units are reserved for workers belonging to the Oromia regional state. It adds that the rest is distributed to Dr. Abiy’s cronies.There are some truths to EZEMA’s accusation, especially when it accuses the government of PP of handing keys of finished units to government bureaucrats. Such a practice is common even in the regions. It is customary for both federal and regional governments to give prime land to cronies. PP functionaries in the regions are as guilty of this accusation as they come. In the process, often legitimate owners of such lands are pushed aside.Having said that, the spirit of EZEMA’s August 2020 report is to express its philosophy on the land question pertaining to Addis Ababa. In the report, EZEMA saws the unprovable suspicion that Dr. Abiy’s government is illegally handing finished units to Oromo. In a clever way, it reinvigorates the debate on the question of Addis Ababa and comes to saying that urban land is grabbed by Oromo with the approval of Dr. Abiy’s government. But how does this accusation sit with the killings of Oromo politicians and Oromo activists by the same government? It is this argument that makes EZEMA’s August report nothing but a false pretext to cleverly revive the debate over Addis Ababa at this sensitive time when Oromo advocates are in jail and have no freedom of expression.

The thin thread that holds EZEMA and PP has always been to silence the Oromo and other nationality voices so that urban land of Addis Ababa is “managed” without resistance. In other words, the EZEMA report is the tool for a fight for the control of one of the most important resources that belongs to Oromo – LAND. And this fight is an affirmation that Ethiopia’s history in the last century has been the looting and defending of land by different forces. The urban land question finally saws a wedge between two wrong sides whose unholy alliance is unsustainable. The clash over Oromo land will soon foment open conflict between EZEMA and PP. A Somali adage says: a stolen she camel will never produce a legitimate calf. The original sin of stealing Oromo land must first be corrected before land is legalized to consumers. We need a serious and democratic land policy.
