[FULL REPORT] Amnesty International’s “Because I Am Oromo”: A Sweeping Repression in Oromia …

Posted: Onkoloolessa/October 28, 2014 · Finfinne Tribune | Gadaa.com | Comments (6)

“Between 2011 and 2014, at least 5000 Oromos have been arrested based on their actual or suspected peaceful opposition to the government. These include thousands of peaceful protestors and hundreds of opposition political party members. The government anticipates a high level of opposition in Oromia, and signs of dissent are sought out and regularly, sometimes pre-emptively, suppressed. In numerous cases, actual or suspected dissenters have been detained without charge or trial, killed by security services during protests, arrests and in detention.”

    At a time when their mothers and sisters are gang raped by TPLF terrorists two “oromo generals” Kamal and Hailu fight on trivial policy and break the back of the nation instead of mobilizing all of humanity against NAZI TPLF and eradicate them from the globe. I think these Meles generals deserve torture and should never see Oromia again.

    For a failed organization we are suffering here in our father land. we,of course,appreciate the effort of these old guys though they are praised more than what they deed.But, the real problem is they were the first and created useless ghost that sniff the life of every oromoo. They didn,t either get organized come to fight or resolve our people party so that people will find other solutions to the problem. they stuck in front of 42 million people and making our life hell. where do we go? this is our homeland. waaqa has reason to create us here. pls dissolve this organisation so that we will search for other option or do something

    First of all iwould like to Amnesty International as general and the head of the research Mrs Claire Beston for this wonderful finding about the Oromo people. Well done!
    Oromo people is the largest ethnic group in East Africa speaking the same language “Afaan Oromoo” and the most affected and subjugated by successive Abyssinian group since 19th century.

    From 1991 Tigrayan-led group come to power and since then, the Ethiopian government’s records of human rights violations; extraordinary killings, forced disappearances, massive imprisonments, displacements and other means of suppression against the Oromo people alarmngly increased. The world has repeatedly witnessed that the TPLF regime of Ethiopia has adopted a policy of ruling by violence, and commit harsh and cruel actions flagrantly.
    The TPLF Tigrian-led group continue its brutal actions against Oromo people at the stage of intensified state terrorism. They deliberately evicting Oromos from their ancestral lands by the name of development and investment which is used as a pretext for their propoganda and replacing by Tigrayan and few foreign investors even without paying the compensation for Oromo farmers and make the Oromos homless and stateless which is against the national law.
    More than 25, ooo Oromos are in notorious Ethiopian prison persecuted, different kinds of torture, killing, harassment, disappearance and other ill-treatments has been taken place by btutal Tigrian-led groups.

    We Oromo people need justice!
    We Oromo people need freedom!
    We Oromo people need equality!
    We oromo people need our voice heared!
