In a Letter to the Deutsche Welle (DW) Broadcasting Board, Oromo Activist Announced Boycott of DW Amharic Service Over Ethnically-Motivated Biased Program Against the Oromo Nation
Gadaa.com | December 10, 2013
Dear Broadcasting Board
We, the Oromos allover the world, are deeply offended by DW’s Amharic Service racial/ethnic attack aired against the Oromo people of Ethiopia on December 8, 2013. The DW host invited two guests from Amhara ethnic group and one guests from the Oromo of Ethiopia. To make it easy for distorting history, the two Amhara guests were professors of history while the Oromo guest was an economist by profession. The two professors were making inflammatory remarks about the Oromo people. The host journalist, who is also from Amhara ethnic group, clearly took the position against the Oromos and involved in harassing the Oromo guest. What’s more disheartening was the fact that these inflammatory remarks fitted the editor’s one-sided editorial position on praising the controversial king Minilik of Ethiopia who masterminded the chopping off 3000 Oromo women’s breasts and Oromo men’s hands in a single day (Abbas 1995, Hassen, 2002, Jalata 1998 and Bulcha 2006). To put it in relative terms, it is praising Adolf Hitler to Jews community on air. Read more…
As a nation, the Oromo people are at historical transition between the gallant and revolutionary generation of the 70s and the rising leaders of the “Qubee Generation” who are energized to shoulder the responsibility of advancing the Oromo succession.
To carry out this generational inauguration collectively and competently, the time currently calls for a national and international gathering of rising Oromo leaders. Hence an interactive 3-day conference will bring together emerging leaders from diverse and contemporary fields to critically respond to themes of Oromo history, current community status and the future goals anticipated for emerging Oromo leaders of the future. The objectives of the conference are threefold: Read more…

Ethiopia foreign ministry announces up to 50,000 more citizens to return after crackdown on illegal immigrants
London: Dec. 5, 2013 – A Call for Demonstration Against Refoulement of Oromo and Other Refugees from Saudi Arabia
A demonstration is organized to protest against arbitrary arrests, tortures, killings and extraditions of Oromo and other refugees and migrant workers from Ethiopia in Saudi Arabia.
All OROMOS and those who stand for human rights are invited to take part in this demonstration.
Date: 05 Dec 2013
TIME: 1:00 pm – 5:pm
Venue: Curzon Street London, W1J7TY
Dec 5, 2013 (Aljazeera) — Ethiopia has repatriated more than 100,000 citizens from Saudi Arabia following a violent crackdown on illegal immigrants, Addis Ababa’s foreign ministry has said.
Ethiopian Foreign Minister Tedros Adhanom said on Thursday that up to 50,000 more citizens were still expected to return.
“Last night arrivals from Saudi reached 100,620,” Tedros said in a written statement.
“All citizens that were detained in Riyadh deportation camps are back”.
Ethiopia started repatriating its citizens from Saudi Arabia last month after a seven-month amnesty period for undocumented immigrants expired, sparking violent protests between Ethiopian migrants and Saudi police.
Foreign ministry spokesman Dina Mufti said repatriation efforts had been “successful so far. Read more…
On December 1, 2013, the Oromo Studies Association has posted on its Facebook page about unfortunate experience of a certain Oromo scholar at the British Council, in Ethiopia, regarding the selection of the code of his mother tongue from a list of the African languages. The purpose of this compatriot was to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Filling a registration form before taking the TOEFL was a normal procedure. Much to his dismay, Afaan Oromo, was missing from a list of some eighty African languages (among which Amharic and Tigrinya were mentioned) on the form. In fact, when we put in the relative terms mentioning Amharic and Tigrinya and disregarding Afaan Oromo is tantamount with mentioning Scotish and Welsh and ignoring English from a list of languages in Great Britain.
