Baga Nagaan dhuftan! Welcome!Herzlich Willkommen!

It is the Responsibility of All Oromo Nationalist to Fulfill the Aims, Which Our Heroes and Heroines Died for!

 

We celebrate the Oromo martyrs day and the Oromo Liberation Army (OLA) day to remember and commemorate the fallen heroes and heroines and to renew our commitment to all aspects of struggles for the liberation of the Oromo people and nation. These two historical days are the days that  remind us to take courage in order to pay all the sacrifices required for the fulfillment of the farsighted objectives of our heroes and heroines.


Our heroes and heroines, such as Jarra Abba Gadaa, Mamo Mazamir, Elemo Qilxu, General Taddesse Birru, General Waaqoo Guutuu, Baro Tumsa, Rev. Gudina Tumsa, Sheykh Bakrii Saphalo, Magarsa Barii, Mulis Abba Gadaa,  Sisay Ibssa, Adam Jiloo and many other had sacrificed their live for a single main objective. This objective is the freedom and liberation of their people and land. The Oromo heroes and heroines had been struggling in unity for the achievement of this single and main objective.


 

We, the current Oromo generation, have to realize that fulfilling this agenda of our martyrs is our most important responsibility. The most important message and example that our martyrs had left for us is to work and struggle for the strengthening of the unity of the Oromo people. Based on this fact, the Oromos are reminded of implementing and strengthening unity either in the liberation movement camps or in different Oromo political parties or wherever they are. This “Unity”, which is extensively written by our authors, used as a theme by our singers and been discussed every where by our people, should be considered as our main responsibility. Moreover, we need to understand that strengthening the unity and fighting for the fulfillment of the objectives of our martyrs is the call for freedom, the voice of the majority, the dream and will of the Oromo people and the voice of our martyrs.


Even though our martyrs are not with us, we hear their voice  every day and this voice has a strong message to us today. This voice would say to us , “strengthen your effort and realize the aim we died for”. Moreover, it would say “we died for a single purpose, so don't let our aim on the air, if you do so you will be remembered in the wrong side of history”. Therefore, we need to understand our responsibility to realize and fulfill the aim our heroes and heroines died for.


Victory to the Oromo People!

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
