ODF Statment on the Killing of Oromo Students & Civilians

OLF

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.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, under the UN charter, has an obligation to observe and protect human rights…
