Persecuted at Home and Humiliated Abroad

(Is there an end to the Global Oromo Refugee Crises?)

Editorial Message

38th Annual meeting of the UOSG, 14.12.2013Nürnberg, Germany



We have watched the dehumanizing, barbaric, and vicious violence against our fellow Oromo migrant workers in Saudi Arabia with great sorrow and trauma. Over this period of violence we have seen graphic images of brutality and inhuman treatment inflicted on our brothers and sisters by the Saudi police and some Saudi citizens. While we are denouncing in every possible way the act of the Saudi government, we would like to point out the underlying reason for this humiliation and statelessness of our great nation. The underlying reason is gross human rights violations and political persecution back home forcing the Oromos to risk their life, leave everything they have behind and travel even to those hostile places like Saudi Arabia and the gulf.


May be for many other immigrant exodus is seeking better opportunity and life, which is also part of the modern slave trade in which the government of Ethiopia itself is involved, but for many Oromos exile is a means of survival. Let us see the situation for Oromos in the Ethiopian empire. Could Ethiopia be ‘home’ to the Oromos? No! the Ethiopian empire could only be a “prison-home”, where they will be executed for the crime of speaking own language, asking for freedom of speech or worse for being Oromo. Yes Ethiopia could be a prison where there is the indignity of poverty, inequality, insecurity, subjugation, denial of opportunity and all forms of state sponsored terrorism for the only crime of being Oromo. Recent publication by human right advocates and documents released by the Ethiopian kangaroo court shows more than 86% of the political motivated execution have targeted activists from the Oromo ethnic. This alone is enough evidence that, Ethiopia is more exilic than exile itself to Oromos. Let us be clear Ethiopia for Oromos returning from Saudi and other places is more atrocious than the atrocities we have witnessed in Saudi Arabia. Unfortunately, our fellow brothers and sisters are only left with the choice between the Devil and the deep blue.


Therefore we would like to remind our fellow Oromo nationals, the only way out of this humiliation and statelessness is to regain our freedom by any means possible by borrowing the inspirational word from our famous Oromo Political Analyst Mr. Jawar Mohammed:


“We could ask foreign powers and good-doers to throw us blankets to survive the cold and leftover food to get by. But, we will still be back to the same destitution the next day or the one after. The only and lasting solution to this humiliating national homelessness is to take back our homeland. “


It is also with this understanding we, editorial team of Biiftuu Bilisaa and members of the union of Oromo students in Europe-Germany (TBOJ/UOSG) call up on international community to see the indictment the Oromo people are in and put enough pressure on the Ethiopian-TPLF government to stop the gross human rights violations and crime against humanity targeting the Ethiopian mass in general and the Oromo in particular that has resulted in global Oromo refuge crises. More over we would like to kindly request UNHCR, the European Union, the German government and other international organizations to support the Oromo refugees fleeing their home land for fear of politically motivated persecution.

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.

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



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!!!




(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.
