ONLF – the Only Somali Organization Free of Ethiopian Control

By Ahmed Abdi | September 17, 2014

Siyaasiyiinta Soomaaliyeed ee MaantaThe Somali Nation has been indigenous in Eastern Africa for thousands of years as attest Egyptian Hieroglyphic, Ancient Greek, Latin and Arabic historical sources.

For the Somali Nation, today’s divisions and hardships are basically due to the nefarious colonial presence and division of the national Somali territory. The English colonized the North around Berbera, the French controlled the African coastland of the Red Sea straits Bab el Mandeb, and the Italians controlled most of the East, part of the Central regions, and the South of Somalia. In addition, the English who controlled the region of the lakes and of Mt. Kenya put under control the extreme South of Somalia, which belongs today to the colonially fabricated pseudo-nation of Kenya, and exerted a nominal control over Somalia’s Central and Western regions that have been inhabited by the Ogadeni Somalis.

Not so mega? The risky business of large-scale public-private partnerships in African agriculture

September 17, 2014 (Oxfam) — Oxfam policy adviser Robin Willoughby shrugs off the big ag groupthink and argues that the current trend of mega projects in African agriculture is a Robin-Willoughbyrisky and unproven way to help poor farmers.

Last week, I attended a large summit on the future of African agriculture in Addis Ababa, hosted by A Green Revolution for Africa(AGRA).

My participation really made me reflect on the problems of ‘groupthink’ within these types of conference, with each of the participants taking it in turns to stand on the podium and agree with one another more and more vociferously. The buzzwords were ‘investment opportunities’, ‘transformation’ and ‘public-private partnerships.’

This narrative is to be expected at a private sector agri-investment conference – but seems confusing when this type of meet-up is designed by philanthropic organisations to address rural poverty and the widespread challenges in African farming. Despite the worthy aims of AGRA, discussion of poverty, rights, gender or inequality was almost entirely absent from the plenary. Read more…

New World Summit-Brussels Stateless State

September 16, 2014

I would like to invite you on behalf of Jonas Staal and the entire team of the New World Summit to the 4th New World Summit in the Royal Flemish Theater (KVS) in Brussels, starting Friday evening 19th of September and ending Sunday evening 21st of September 2014. This edition is entitled New World Summit: Stateless State. Because of your affiliation with the issues addressed in the summit, we would hereby like to offer you a free entrance ticket to attend one or several days to the program. Please note that Dr. Shigut Geleta, representing the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF), will be speaking already on Friday 19th September. See more in pdf

During these three days, 20 representatives of ‘stateless states’ worldwide will engage in a debate regarding the question to what extent the concept of the state is still capable of representing and protecting a people’s right to self-determination. In five consecutive segments, titled Oppressive State (Friday 19:00 – 22:00), Progressive State (Saturday 13:00 – 16:00), Global State (Saturday 17:00 – 20:00), New State (Sunday 13:00 – 16:00) en Stateless State (Sunday 17:00 – 20:00) representatives of stateless organizations and states will discuss the meaning, potentials and obstacles that the state embodies today.

The cancer of Shawaa and Wallagga, what’s it’s root?

Rundaasaa Asheetee | September 16, 2014

Any issue pertaining to Shawaa and Wallggaa must spark national conversation so that the new generation of Oromia can learn how these two institutions came into existence. Though both institutions, i.e Shawaa and Wallggaa evoke certain memories in the minds of those who have accepted them as an identity, neither Shawaa nor Wallagaa were part of the Oromo history or part of Oromo clan names.

For example, Mararaa Gudina and Daniel Dafa come from the Maccaa Oromo tribe, their birth places are close to each other, they spoke the same language, they grew up under the same economic situation, both believed that the oppression of the Oromo people must be removed and both suffered decade worth prison life and both lost their siblings to the Habasha ruler’s bluets. Most importantly, both men went to prison at the same age and both were students of same university, both men cared less for religion more for their people. Read more…

More children live to age 5, work still to be done

By LAURAN NEERGAARD
AP Medical Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) – More of the world’s children are surviving to their fifth birthday, but 6.3 million still died last year, mostly from preventable causes, the U.N. children’s agency said Tuesday.

That’s nearly 17,000 young children dying every day. And while death rates have been cut in half since 1990, the world still is short of meeting a goal of a two-thirds decrease in child mortality by next year, the report by the United Nations Children’s Fund said.

“We’re building momentum in many countries in the poorest parts of the world,” said Dr. Mickey Chopra, UNICEF’s head of global programs. The challenge is to spread what works. Read more…

International Oromo Youth Association’s Press Release

IOYA_Logo


September 16, 2014

On July 1, 2014, the International Oromo Youth Association and the Advocates for Human Rights submitted a detailed report to the Pre-Sessional Working Group of the Committee on the Rights of the Child. The report identified numerous human rights violations of the rights of children under the age of 18 in Ethiopia. The report concluded that ethnic identity is a major risk factor—children belonging to certain ethnic groups such as the Oromo face severe discrimination and rights violations. The report specifically focuses on human rights violations that followed the recent peaceful protests that occurred across schools in the Oromia region. Other issues pertaining to liberty, security, privacy, freedom of expression and association, family, basic health and welfare, education, and leisure and cultural activities were also included in the report.

Potatoes are nuggets to save Ethiopia as Ireland shares years of expertise

Spuds are nutritious and hardy, and a research centre collaboration is helping defeat hunger in Africa

September 15, 2014 (The Irish Times) — The hills of Chencha in southern Ethiopia, over 2,700m above sea level, are not a place where you might expect the Irish potato to be thriving underground. But in a country where most farmers work on small plots, providing just enough to feed themselves and their family, the humble spud is a popular crop.

In fact, it is estimated there are one million potato farmers in Ethiopia, planting approximately 16,000 hectares annually. The crop – known as the Irish potato across the region – is grown on mainly small half-hectare plots in the highlands, without fertiliser and mostly by women farmers. Read more…
