    The Search for a De-ethnicized Ethiopian Identity

    By Israel Fayisa The issue of identity has always been part of human socio-political evolution. Ancient history tells us nothing but how people of common ancestry lived together and how these people fought with others for greed or grievance. Slavery started and ended with identity at its core. Industrial revolution gave birth to the expansion of trade with people from different backgrounds.

As the year 2013 gives way to 2014, we, members of the Oromo Democratic Front (ODF), wish our fellow Oromo as well as all the other peoples of Ethiopia a Happy New Year!

Statement on the Mistreatment of Immigrants from Ethiopia in Saudi Arabia

We, members of the Oromo Democratic Front (ODF), strongly condemn all actions of brutality carried out against migrant workers from Ethiopia in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Leave alone our fellow Oromos, we do not wish such dehumanizing, barbaric, and vicious violence being inflicted on any human being whatsoever.  Although officials of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have every right to ask foreigners to leave their country, it should be done in a civilized fashion where people are not dehumanized and abused. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, under the UN charter, has an obligation to observe and protect human rights…
