የትዉልዱ ግልጽ አቋም! “አንገዛም!” የትዉልዱ ግልጽ አቋም!

qerroooQeerroo | September 1, 2014

ይህ ትዉልድ የባርነትን ሠንሠለት ሰባብሮ ፍርሃትን ገድሎ ነጻነቱን ፍለጋ እስከ ወዲያኛዉ አድማስ ጥግ እንኳ ቢሆን ለመጓዝ ወስኖ የወጣ ጀግና ትዉልድ ነዉና “አልገዛም!” ካላ ቃሉ ጽኑ ነዉ!

ነጻነትን ያረገዛ ትውልድ ግፍና ጭፍጨፋ አላቆመዉም። የደቡብ አፍርካዉ የስዌቶ  ጭፍጨፋ (the Soweto Massacre 1976 ) ፣ በኬንያ የታየዉ  የሆላ ጭፍጨፋ “Hola massacre 1959” ወይም በሃሬሮና ነማ ሕዝቦች ላይ የተፈጸመዉ የነሚቢያዉ ጅኖሳይድ  “Herero and Nama Genocide 1904” አልያም የ‘Robben Island’” እስር የትዉልዱን የነጻነት ጥያቄ እንዳልገታ ፤ የነጻነትን ብርሃን እንዳላጫለማ ታሪክ ምንጊዜም ህያዉ መስካር ነዉ።

ዛሬም ቢሆን ከማዕከላዊ እስከ ቃሊቲ፣ ከቅሊንጦ እስከ  ዝዋይ የእስር ቤቱ ቁጥር ቢባዛም ፣ የማሰቃያ ዓይነቶች ቢበራከቱም ፣ ግዲያና ሽብር ቢፋፋምም  ይህ ትዉልድ “ነጻነቴን!” ብሎ ወቷልና ፈጽሞ  የሚያቆም አይሆንም። ነጻነትን የተጠማ ትዉልድ ለእዉነት በእዉነት የሚታገል ኀያል ኃይል (Super Power) ያለዉ ባለራዕይ የነጻነት ሠራዊት እንጂ በመንደርተኞች ኣሉባልታ የሚሳናከል እርባናብስ ስብስብ አይዴለምና!

በተደጋጋሚ እንደተገለጸዉም ሆነ በታግባር እንደተረጋገጠ የትዉልዱ መሠረታዊ ዓላማ (basic Objective) የኦሮሞ ሕዝብን ብሔራዊ ነጻነትን ማረጋገጥ ነዉ። ለዚህ ዓላማ ስኬት ሕዝባችን ዘማናትን ያስቆጠረ ዉድ ዋጋ ስከፍልበት ቆይቶ አሁን ለባርነት የመጨረሻ ስንብት የሚደረግበት  ያታርክ ፊጻሜ ላይ አድርሰዉታል። ይህንን የትግል ምዕራፍ በኃላፊነት የተረከበዉ ትዉልድም ኃላፊነቱን ጠንቅቆ የሚያዉቅ ብቻ ሳይሆን ኃላፊንቱ የሚጠይቀዉን ዋጋም  (responsibility) ጭምር ለመወጣት ዝግጁ ስለመሆኑ በአደባባይ አስመስክሯል። ነጻነት በነጻ አይገኝምና ሞትና እስራት ሳይገድበዉ ርቆ ተጉዟል። Read more…

Oromia: Enhanced Master Plan to Continue Committing the Crimes of Genocide

The actions taken were aimed at destroying Oromo farmers or at rendering them extinct.  

~Ermias Legesse, Ethiopia’s exiled EPRDF Minister

August 30, 2014 (Oromo Press) — The announcement of the implementation of the Addis Ababa Master Plan (AAMP) was just an extension of an attempt by EPRDF government at legalizing its plans of ridding the Oromo people from in and around Finfinne by grabbing Oromo land for its party leaders and real estate developers from the Tigrean community. The act of destroying Oromo farmers by taking away their only means of survival—the land—precedes the current master plan by decades.  Ermias Legesse, exiled EPRDF Deputy Minister of Communication Affairs, acknowledged his own complicity in the destruction of 150,000[1] Oromo farmers in the Oromia region immediately adjacent to Finfinne. He testifies that high-level TPLF/EPRDF officials are responsible for planning and coordinating massive land-grab campaigns without any consideration of the people atop the land.  Ermia’s testimony is important because it contains both the actus reus  and dolus specials of the mass evictions[2]: Read more…

Ethiopia: Uneven Coverage of Suppressed Ethiopian Journalists

August 30, 2014, Addis Ababa (VOA) — This month, Ethiopian officials shut down five magazines — the latest in a series of shutdowns — but the move got little attention from outside the country. The East African country is well known for suppressing the media, but some cases seem to get celebrity status while others are ignored.

Twelve Ethiopian journalists and publishers left the country in August after the magazines they worked for were forced by the government to shut down. International media gave little attention to the self-chosen exile of these media practitioners.

In contrast, the cases of Eskinder Nega, Reeyot Alemu and more recently the Zone9 bloggers have been covered by outlets such as al-Jazeera and the BBC, as well as VOA.

Tom Rhodes of the Committee to Protect Journalists, or CPJ, says it can be partly explained why some cases get more attention. Read more…

Ethiopians are Left Alone: the unspoken retarding role of foreign aid in Ethiopia

Aklog Birara | August 29, 2014

FoodforDictators“Not even shooting and jailing the opposition, manipulating aid to starve the opposition, seizing the lands of villagers (Gambella, the Omo Valley, etc.) and relocating them (Villagization) against their will, and perpetrating violence against villagers who protest has been enough to shake the technocratic faith that autocrats (and dictators) can be trusted to be implementers of technical solutions.” – William Easterly

Ever since the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) and the Ethiopian Peoples’ Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) that it dominates took political power 23 years ago with the pretense of establishing a democratic state, Ethiopia has become the darling of the donor community. Read more…

“Reconciling” the two Ethiopia?

Diida Borbor | August 29, 2014

If a week is a long time in politics, then a year is an eternity. And in the case of Oromo politics, a lot has changed in the last year. By all accounts, Oromos had a good year.

First, Teddy Afro’s song praising Menilik II ignited the furry of Oromos resulting in numerous songs, poems, articles highlighting the savagery and barbarity of Menilik II during and after colonization. The memories of Walloo, Galaan, Gullellee, Azule and Calii-Calanqoo massacres (just to mention few) and the Harma fi Harka Muraa Aanoole where thousands of Oromo men, women and children breasts or arms were severed by the colonial army spearheaded by Menilik showed that the wounds have not healed and that Oromos would never forget.
