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
