The Omo River Valley in Ethiopia (declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1980) was known to Europeans since the 17th century, but only in the last decade have foreigners begun travelling in this region. Bordering with Kenya and Sudan, far from any city, it is a lost world, a region traversed only by a few bad quality roads, passable only in the dry season. Here live some 15 semi-nomadic tribes, the largest comprising of approximately 70,000 people and the smallest no more than 1,000, a total of about 200,000. Read more…

North Norway Oromo youths Demonstrate against the ongoing human rights violation By TPLF/EPRDF regime in Trondheim, Norway
Report by Getinet Dinkayehu
Oromo Youth in North Norway on March 1, 2014 protested against the ongoing human rights violations, inhuman killings, and the repression being done by the criminal Ethiopian Government and urges the TPLF/ERPDF to stop dictatorship with Impunity. It is terrifying and unjust that the continuing suffering of Oromo people through systematic human rights abuses by the Ethiopian Government is largely ignored by governments around the world. Yet the heinous crimes of the TPLF/EPRDF government rank high in the catalogue of human right abuses committed by African governments. Over the past two decades, the TPLF-led Ethiopian government has imprisoned tens of thousands of Oromo political oppositions, several thousands of innocent Oromo have been deteriorating in prisons and secret camps, and many have been and are being cruelly tortured, killed, uprooted, raped and exiled. Others have been abducted in broad daylight, and made to disappear or murdered secretly. Read more…

March 8, 2014 (Huffington Post) — A Unicef report states that in Ethiopia there are at this moment 4.5 million orphans on a population of some 90 million. The 4.5 million means that 5 percent of the total population is an orphan. Orphans are in Ethiopia defined as children under 18 whose both parents died. They died of AIDS, untreated illnesses, hunger, draught and war.
Ethiopia is one example of the many countries where a newly formed US Foreign Affairs agency will work if the Children in Families First (CHIFF) legislation is passed in congress. The law aims to connect these orphans through family reunification, domestic, kinship or inter country adoption. A great idea, because it stresses the importance of child welfare in dealing with what is called the world orphan crisis. Read more…
Deporting Eritreans in Israel to Ethiopia would condemn them to a life of misery, squalor and human trafficking. Harrowing insights from a camp in northern Ethiopia.
March 7, 2014, Israel (Haaretz) – Sixteen kilograms of wheat, a kilogram and a half of lentils, 950 grams of cooking oil, one handful of salt, one handful of sugar.
No, this is not a recipe for a cheap meal. It is the monthly nutritional allowance for an Eritrean family living in a refugee camp in northern Ethiopia. Add to their allotment one bar of soap per month for hygiene and to wash clothes, and two pairs of new underwear for each member of the family every six months. That’s all that they will receive while in the camp.
For these families – nearly 70,000 individuals, according to Ethiopian officials – every day is the same as the day before. There is no opportunity for work. There is no variety. Each meal consists mostly of injera, the spongy, mildly sour flatbread that is a local staple. Read more…
