“…….................I arrived in Germany at the beginning of October 1974. The first Ethiopian I met in Bochum was an Oromo named Medhinu Litche. Litche had contact with Oromos living in the near bye cities..........It is through Litche that I came to know these friends. From October to December, we only met socially but informed each other about home situation. I used to get letters up-dating me on the developments a home. I shared the information with them. But towards the end of the year we decided to establish an Oromo Student’s Association. We decided to publish a journal in Qubee, with Oromo history and culture. Litche and the other friends informed their friends in Berlin and other cities of Germany. Those living in Berlin responded quickly. They organized themselves and sent a delegation to a meeting which took place in Bochum (in Litche’s residence) in January 1975. It was resolved that we establish the Union of Oromo Students Association in Germany (TBOG). Dr. Nagaasoon barruu kanaan olitti tuqame itti fufuu dhaan akkas jedhu:


" The first TBOG meeting also resolved that a message be sent to the annual meeting of the Union of Ethiopian Students in Germany to take place in April 1975 (Kassel?). In our message we said that the Oromo union is ready to work with any Ethiopian organization which recognized the independence of TBOG and was ready to help solve the Oromo National Question. Unfortunately the person we delegated to the UESG meeting did not appear at the meeting. Had he taken our message to the UESG meeting, I am sure some positive development could have happened.TBOG planned to hold a meeting in Berlin in August 1975 at the time when the annual meeting of Union of Ethiopian Students in Europe took place. Our aim was to announce the birth of TBOJ, our plan to establish TBOA and call on Oromo students to join us. The supporters of EPRP condemned us as narrow nationalists. The supporters of AESM (All Ethiopian Socialist Movement) met with us and asked us to join the Oromo Study Group organized under UESE Union of Ethiopian Students in Europe. We disagreed. TBOA was founded. The members of the Oromo Study Group founded the Tokkummaa Ijaarsa Barattoota Oromo Biyya Awroopaa (TIBOBA) in 1976. TIBOBA and TBOA met in Berlin and discussed on how to unite the two organizations. TBOA demanded that TIBOBA disband itself and that its members become members of TBOA individually. TIBOBA demanded that the two unions merge under a name to be negotiated upon and that a leadership be elected from members of the two organizations. No agreement could be reached and the two organizations remained apart................................" ) [ emphasis mine].

Ethiopia, Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2012


EXECUTIVE SUMMARY


Ethiopia is a federal republic. On August 20, Prime Minister Meles Zenawi died. The ruling Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) elected then deputy prime minister Hailemariam Desalegn to take Meles’s place as chairman of the party. The EPRDF subsequently nominated him for the post of prime minister. On September 21, parliament elected Hailemariam as prime minister. In national parliamentary elections in 2010, the EPRDF and affiliated parties won 545 of 547 seats to remain in power for a fourth consecutive five-year term. Although the relatively few international officials allowed to observe the elections concluded technical aspects of the vote were handled competently, some also noted that an environment conducive to free and fair elections was not in place prior to the election.


Security forces generally reported to civilian authorities; however, there were instances in which special police and local militias acted independently of civilian control. The most significant human rights problems included restrictions on freedom of expression and association through politically motivated trials and convictions of opposition political figures, activists, journalists, and bloggers, as well as increased restrictions on print media. In July security forces used force against and arrested Muslims who protested against alleged government interference in religious affairs. The government continued restrictions on civil society and non governmental organization (NGO) activities imposed by the Charities and Societies Proclamation (CSO).


Other human rights problems included arbitrary killings; allegations of torture, beating, abuse, and mistreatment of detainees by security forces; reports of harsh and at times life-threatening prison conditions; arbitrary arrest and detention; detention without charge and lengthy pretrial detention; a weak, overburdened judiciary subject to political influence; infringement on citizens’ privacy rights, including illegal searches; allegations of abuses in the implementation of the government’s “villagization” program; restrictions on academic freedom; restrictions on freedom of assembly, association, and movement; alleged interference in religious affairs; limits on citizens’ ability to change their government; police, administrative, and judicial corruption; violence and societal discrimination against women and abuse of children; female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C); exploitation of children for economic and sexual purposes; trafficking in persons; societal discrimination against persons with disabilities; clashes between ethnic minorities; discrimination against persons based on their sexual orientation and against persons with HIV/AIDS; limits on worker rights; forced labor; and child labor, including forced child labor.


Impunity was a problem. The government, with some reported exceptions, generally did not take steps to prosecute or otherwise punish officials who committed abuses other than corruption. Factions of the Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF), an ethnically based, violent, and fragmented separatist group operating in the Somali Region, were responsible for abuses. Members of the separatist Afar Revolutionary Democratic Union Front (ARDUF) claimed responsibility for a January attack on a group of foreign tourists in the Afar Region.

Appeal statement from members of Union of Oromo Students in Germany (UOSG)

 

Since the end of 19th century Oromo and the majority of Ethiopian peoples have been victims of open and systematic genocide polices of successive Abyssinian ruling classes. Historical records have been indicating that the majority of peoples in Ethiopia have been living in environments characterized by unabated killings, repression, and oppressions orchestrated by successive tyrant and dictatorial regimes for more than a century. Groups or individuals who dare to raise the question of their identity are considered as the enemies of the empire and languish in the tyranny jail.  Read More


Oromia: A hero memorial was held for Jirenya Ragassa in different part of Wollega


March 23, 2012 (Qeerroo) – Student Jirenya Ragassa was one of the peaceful demonstrators who were convinced to speak out against injustice and to work for democracy and rule of law, in a country where unspeakable mess is going on by an organized gang and self appointed “Government of Ethiopia”.


It is a conviction of tyrants that crushing dissents is the only way to move forwards. They don’t have the courage to face the bitter truth and brave hearts of their own citizens. By so doing, they exacerbate the already complex and unbearable situation and push the matter further to the brink. By killing one, they will help the birth of thousands and millions of Jirenya, who are ready to fight to the end for the right and dignity of their people and their land.


That is exactly what is happening right at the hero memorial held for Jirenya in different part of Wollega. They have vowed to keep their promise to each other and to the soul of Jirenya, that his sacrifice will inspire their life and their struggle until they achieve their goal. Students and fellow Oromo’s in Haroo, Limmuu, Diggaa, Saasiggaa, Eebantuu, Kiiramuu, Dhukkee, Dongoroo, Amuruu, Jaartee and other places have held a candle light ceremony in his remembrance, chanting and vowing to keep the cause going.


Jirenya has lived an exemplary life and had paid the biggest sacrifice for the cause of his people. He preferred to die on his feet than to live on his knees, leaving the rest of the job behind for us.


Let’s move the barrier, let’s make the monster in 4 kilo and his brutality only a matter history. Let us act NOW!!!

State Department slams Ethiopia on human rights


(OPride) — The U.S. government on Friday commended activists, netizens, and journalists for their courage in advocating for universal human rights and expressed concern over the heightened crackdown on civil liberties, rebuking several countries for shrinking the space for journalists and activists.


In its 36th annual report of human rights practices around the world, the State Department criticized the increased suppression of freedoms of expression, assembly, association and religion. The report said governments continued to repress or attack the means by which individuals organize and “demand better performance from their rulers” by instituting new impending laws throughout 2012.  Read More
