Empire strikes back: catastrophic consequences
There seems to be a pattern to all this. It is very worrying.
Teshale Abera, former President of Oromia Region Supreme Court, November 2020.

Despite severe restrictions on the flow of information from Ethiopia OSG continues to record

a relentless rise in the death toll as the government stifles all aspirations for self-
determination for the peoples of Ethiopia.

Particularly large numbers have been killed in Western Oromia, especially in Wallega, where
another 92 killings of Oromo have been added to the 350 recorded previously since October.

In a terrifying throwback to imperial grandeur and ambition, and demonstrating a complete
failure to learn from history, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and the imperial old guard which
refuses to let go of its designs on all the assets of the Ethiopian empire, have brought Ethiopia
to the brink of ruin.
Stifling the democratic aims of the peoples of Ethiopia whose claims for self-determination
were satisfied to some extent with the distribution of powers along federal lines, the one party
state which has been forced on the peoples of Ethiopia has violently suppressed opposition in
Walaita, Sidama, Qimant, Benishangul-Gumuz, Oromo and other areas and has prosecuted a
genocidal war against Tigray Region. The Ethiopian government has precipitated and
fostered inter-ethnic violence all over Ethiopia (see letter from Human Rights League for the
Horn of Africa p.20) while seeking to establish a unitary state by force. It has terrorised and
killed its own citizens merely to vilify the OLF and other Oromo organisations and
institutions.
