    ODF Statement on EPRDF Proclamation on Oromia special rights on Addis Ababa (Finfinne)

    The Council of Ministers of the Ethiopian federal government released a statement on the long overdue legal assertion regarding the rights of the Oromia state on the capital. After careful reading and examination of the contents of the statement, we fail to see any substantial legal remedy that addresses the concern and the demand of the Oromo people. Contrarily, some of the rights that the statement tries to list are universal rights and basic freedoms that every citizen of a given country should have enjoyed in the first place and do not need a new proclamation. Moreover, we find the…

    Statement by the Coordinating Committee of Four Oromo Organizations

    28 February 2017 Statement by the Coordinating Committee of Four Oromo Organizations We the undersigned four Oromo liberation organizations, strongly condemn the land-grab and ethnic-cleansing policy in Oromia region of Ethiopia in general and Hararghe, Bale and in Borana-Guji zones in particular. This is the result of the narrow ethnically-based Ethiopian government which, since 1991, is controlled and dominated by the Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) representing about six percent of the population of Ethiopia. The TPLF leadership hates Oromo numerical asset as they are the single largest national group in Ethiopia. For that purpose the TPLF adopted a secret…

Declaration of the Founding of the Ethiopian National Movement (ENM)

Declaration of the Founding of the Ethiopian National Movement (ENM) It cannot be lost on anyone at this juncture that the struggle of the peoples of Ethiopia for freedom, democracy and justice has entered a critically decisive stage. The fact that the popular struggle, born of the injustice and repression visited upon the population for a quarter of a century by the TPLF-led regime, is sustained for over a year in the face of mass killings and massive detentions unambiguously tells us that it has opened a new chapter. Due to the population’s refusal to be ruled as before and…
