The fate of the Oromo under the rising Amhara racism

Posted 4/17/2014

By Rundassa Asheete, 03-04-2014


The Habasha Dabtaras always talk about history as if we live in the past. But none of us live in the past, only in the present, though our present is in the hands of the Tigre tribe.

Yes, there is what we call "history", yet, history doesn’t just happen on it's own but it is made by people. As such, when we look back into history, we find that people who made our lives so challenging today are the Dabtaras who love to talk about history. 

 
Interestingly, as much as the Habasha Dabtaras are caught up in the web of history, the majority of us live in a moment that alway keeps us busy to meet our life's obligations. This is true even for Finfinnee, the city where the beggars, the street girls, the thieves, the spies, the buses and taxis that cary millions people from Bakanisaa to Birbirrsaa, from Boolee to Laaftoo, from Laga Haree to Awaaree, from Dukam to Qaallitti, from Laga Xaafoo, to Qaban'aa, from Bulbula to Halaltu cross each other in a seemingly endless stream of chaos.

While the majority Oromians are trapped in this fast-paced life commotion and chaotic momentum, the Habasha Dabataras beat the drum of the past, while arming their nafxanya relatives in Arbbaa Guguu, Minjar, Bulgaa and Wallo as we speak.  But what would happen if we all live in the past just like these Dabtaras?  How things would turn if all the Oromos go back to those critical moments where the Amhara's king Minilik soldiers line up the Oromo mothers and young girls and cut off their breasts and force them to walk through the market while shouting "Ineen iyaayyeeh teqexaa! Ineen iyaayyeeh teeqexaa!"

Neglected Identity - A special Issue of Biftu Bari

Posted 4/10/2014

By Seenaa Jimjimoo, 10-04-2014

        Sena as Sanait

Even though my story is not as compelling and thrilling as the story of “Chaltu as Helen”, I still find it amusing to see some Oromo’s introduce themselves in two characters. Perhaps you are wondering what I am referring to. Let me take you through. It was just this past Sunday I run into a beautiful young Oromo woman. Just after she walked in through the doors with her husband, she introduced herself to me with a typical Habesha name. I couldn’t pronounce her name but I introduced myself as well. With excitement on her face she told me her actual name was … (let just say typical Oromo name). Now, I am not in any way downgrading her for fallen short of stating her real name her Habesha friends, rather I was heartbroken and saddened by the fact this happen too often.

It is no surprise to me, as it is no surprise to you that there are too many Oromo men and women that simply wants to blend with Habeshas easily they neglected who they are. In fact I have no problem using the name Ethiopia to define where you came from. I understand it is the easiest thing to say and shortest to explain to non-Ethiopians and to receive a warm welcome from your best-friends “Habesha” some us dearly want.

New Post Title

Posted 4/4/2014
By Iddoosaa Ejjetaa, 04-04-2014
 
              Introduction
The classical definition of knowledge was given by Plato as “justified true belief.” There are many philosophical theories to explain knowledge. The online oxforddictionarses define knowledge as a theoretical or practical understanding of a subject [online]. The same source explain knowledge that can be implicit (as with practical skill or expertise) or explicit (as with the theoretical understanding of a subject); it can be more or less formal or systematic. According to Stanley Cavell, "Knowing and Acknowledging" the “knowledge acquisition involves complex cognitive processes: perception, communication, association and reasoning; while knowledge is also said to be related to the capacity of acknowledgment in human beings.” I am not here to write the theory of knowledge, but trying to bring the human society acknowledgement and recognition for the Oromoo nation’s indigenous knowledge.
The Oromoo Gadaa System (OGS) is an indigenous knowledge reserve institution of the Oromoo nation.

It Is Time to Break the Silence!

Posted 4/1/2014

Introduction
It’s becoming normal to see or hear the suffering, imprisonment and death in the Eastern Africa, particularly in Ethiopia these days. Many of us who are not living in Ethiopia may not understand or may be mislead by the false propaganda or news of the government. But the reality is here, many of us are suffering both inside the country and outside of Abyssinia by being tortured, imprisoned and misunderstood by different human rights, international organizations, including the United Nations, etc. Many Oromo are still paying sacrifices, because of their identity as Oromo. Some of them are labeled terrorists and are killed on the street by the government forces and the securities.
 
Th
ese are not what were happening in the past few years when we lost a lot of Oromo intellectuals. I am writing this brief message to bring to everyone’s attention what our people are facing these days both in Ethiopia and outside in the refugee camps. I also would like the international societies to break the silence against the torturing and killings of Oromo people.  Because of the lies of the TPLF (Tigray People Liberation Front, a group from jungle), many of those who escaped death to other countries are denied of asylum by the westerners.
 
Therefore, I would like to say few words on the current challenge of Oromo people under the operation of the minority group of the (TPLF) from the North. I also would like to call the attention of international societies in alleviating the challenge of this people based on the following reality.

The TPLF dynasty in Ethiopia

Posted 3/31/2014

By Mesfin Tadesse, 31-03-2014

It has been more than 23 years since Tigray people liberation front(TPLF) clung to power. At the beginning it was thought that they fought to establish the rule of law in the country, however; we witnessed that their ambitions are to stay in powers as long as they can at any expense.

  

      Oromo prisoners of conscience. 

The grip of power at the gun barrel paved the way for them to lead the country in their own course.  In democracy it is the majority rule with minority right.If they have to practice this principle, there will not be much position for them as they wish so by creating a puppet party in which they can ride the direction of their interest. In one man , one vote the power goes to Oromo people where tplf does not want.

More than 99% of generals are from ethnic tigre, most officials at top position are also occupied by Tplf that is the litimus test for dynasty indicator." For in reason, all government without the consent of the governed is the very definition of slavery."Johanatan Swift.

Dr. Gidada writes about UDJ

Posted 3/20/2014

Dear Ato Girma Kassa,

Negaso Gidada

X-Ethiopian president, Negasso Gidada

Sorry, it took me long to be able to answer you. I hope that we are slowly coming to the point where we can identify our differences and agreements. I like the discussion. I wish that all recipients of our Ccs. comment. What are the media to whom we make Cc. of our e-mails doing with them?

1. Concerning my joining UDJ and Withdrawal

The views I have now are the views I had before I joined UDJ. If article 3.1.5 of the program of UDJ did not exist, I would not have joined UDJ. This was clear to the UDJ people who pleaded with me to join UDJ. Did the leaders and members of UDJ believe in article 3.1.5 of their program full heartedly then and reconsidered and changed their mind now? This is their right. But if they then did not believe in it and superficially accepted it then to woo me and Ato Seeye to join UDJ then, this is tantamount to treachery. unless they give an explanation on this matter. Why shouldn’t I have joined the UDJ if my stand was then clear, if the leaders and the members agreed, and adopted article 3.1.5 in their program.

I now left UDJ because article 3.1.5 has now been changed which means that UDJ has made it clear that it does not support the right of self determination of peoples through referendum in case the question secession comes up. The leaders of UDJ have made this clear when they further stated “they will not compromise on the unity of Ethiopia … (in Amharic= anideraderim).” For me this implies that such people would be ready to go to war against people who use their right to self determination including secession. To work in such an organization is for me to violate the right to self determination, a naturally given human right.
Yes it is right that I left the party.

USA criticizes Ethiopia for human rights abuses

Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2013

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Ethiopia is a federal republic. The ruling Ethiopian Peoples’ Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF), a coalition of four ethnically based parties, controls the government. In September 2012, following the death of former Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, parliament elected Hailemariam Desalegn 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 that 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. Authorities generally maintained control over the security forces, although Somali Region Special Police and local militias sometimes acted independently. Security forces committed human rights abuses.

The most significant human rights problems included: restrictions on freedom of expression and association, including through arrests; detention; politically motivated trials; harassment; and intimidation of opposition members and journalists, as well as continued restrictions on print media. On August 8, during Eid al-Fitr celebrations, security forces temporarily detained more than one thousand persons in Addis Ababa. The government continued restrictions on activities of civil society and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) imposed by the Charities and Societies Proclamation (the CSO law).

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); 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, usually 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.

Ethiopia, Sudan seek dialogue with Egypt over Nile dam

Posted 2/26/2014

By Nan via punching.com, 25-=2-2014

Ethiopian Government said on Tuesday that it was collaborating with the Republic of Sudan to dialogue with Egypt on the ongoing $4.7 billion Great Ethiopian Renaissance Dam project.

The project currently at about 34 per cent, was halted due to objection raised by Egypt, who is a member of the Nile’s downstream countries.

Egypt had expressed fear that the Nile Dam project would affect the Egyptians, whose 80 per cent source of domestic water supply comes from the river.

The Ethiopian Water and Irrigation Minister, Alemayehu Tegenu had, however, told newsmen that the country was “collaborating with Republic of Sudan to re-engage Egypt into dialogue to support the project.”
