“The Right to Speak Loudly”

Essays on Law and Human Rights

By W. J. Basil Fernando

July 27, 2012 ( “We desperately need cross-cultural discussions on the rule of law and human rights. Much of the discourse is dominated by the West, as is the language of justice, which is associated with several centuries of struggle there. As a result, many of the problems faced by people in Asia are beyond the comprehension of those who are used to this discourse. Persons from the Western tradition struggle to understand how a police may so readily resort to torture as his means for routine criminal investigation, or how he may spend more time making a living on the side than dealing with his official duties. They cannot easily accept that a prosecutor may belong to a powerless agency, or that a complete buffoon may sit as Chief Justice and make a mockery of the very institution he represents. An enlightened discourse on the rule of law and human rights will develop only when we break down the language barriers involved to understand the actual daily experiences of people throughout Asia.”

Strengthening Advocacy Work by Training Activists

The Oromo people have a nice saying : “Harreen wal dhiitti malee ilkaan wal hin cabsitu.” Mr. Seye Abraha may still want to replace Meles and continue Revolutionary Democracy. Thanks to the International Crisis Group (ICG) they have broken the language barriers on their popular report of September 4, 2009. Now, the TPLF elites can no more deceive the international community by speaking the jargons of liberal democracy. Revolutionary democracy is clearly designed by the TPLF for Tigrayan hegemony and domination. Can they sustain it any more? It depends on our commitment and dedication to dismantle this brutal fascist regime. Read more…

No longer prisoners, these Oromo-Ethiopian refugees now live on the streets with no food, water, blankets or mattresses

Security forces used tear gas and rubber bullets, the former prisoners said, throwing tear gas canisters into cells to disorient them, before dragging them out and beating them with steel rods.
