Joint Press Statement
By Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) & Sidama Liberation Front (SLF)
Time and again we all have witnessed the Tigray Peoples Liberation Front (TPLF) led dictatorial regime of Ethiopia deliberately masterminding various forms of atrocities in order to remain in power. The regime uses its organized agents to deliberately instigate violence between the various oppressed nations in the country. Although the ‘divide-and-rule’ tactics have been adopted by all oppressive rulers all over the globe, the tactics of the current regime in Ethiopia differ in one key aspect. They are aimed at driving a wedge between the most closely related peoples and communities. The regime has done this between the two Kush cousins, the Oromo and the Sidama people time and again seriously undermining their basic human dignities and democratic rights. Read more…
July 20, 2014 (Gadaa) — Minnesota’s Twin Cities, also known as “Little Oromia” for being the home of the largest Oromo population outside of the Horn of Africa, will be the venue for the 2014 OSFNA Sports Tournaments.

First started in 1996, the OSFNA (Oromo Sports Federation of North America) organizes an annual soccer tournament among teams drawn from major North American cities with sizable Oromo expat populations, and the venue for each year’s tournament has been rotating among the participating cities over the last 19 years.

What’s more, this year’s Soccer Tournament will also include game participants from Australia.

The following details were extracted from the latest FAA notice dated 18th of July and reads as follows: Read more…

July 19, 2014 (Lets Run) — With 2 laps to go it was Almaz Ayana of Ethiopia, the bronze medalist at Worlds last year, in the lead, with Dibaba right on her heels and Viola Kibiwot of Kenya there as well. There was a slight gap to Kipyego, Saina, and Diamond League leader Mercy Cherono and then a bigger gap to the two Americans, Huddle and Rowbury, in 7th and 8th.
A 67.49 penultimate lap by Ayana did nothing to break up the top 3; it only put distance between them and the chasers. At the bell, Ayana continued to lead onto the backstretch and Kibiwott was out of it as it was a two-person race between Ayana and Dibaba. Ayana led around the final turn but Dibaba was right with her. Coming off the final turn there was not a tremendous burst from Dibaba, but she had enough to come by Ayana to get the win with a 64.14 leader-to-leader final lap. Read more…

Politically Motivated Charges Show Misuse of Terrorism Law
(Nairobi, July 19, 2014) – The Ethiopian government should immediately drop politically motivated charges brought against 10 bloggers and journalists on July 17, 2014, under the country’s deeply flawed anti-terrorism law, Human Rights Watch said today.
The Ethiopian authorities arrested six of the bloggers and three journalists on April 25 and 26. They have been detained in Maekelawi, the Federal Police Crime Investigation Sector in Addis Ababa. The court charged the nine with having links to banned opposition groups and trying to violently overthrow the government, local media reported. A tenth blogger, who was not in Ethiopia at the time of the arrests, was charged in absentia. Read more…

Before coming with this piece of writing I have challenged myself for many hours whether to make it or not. I have seen both interviews with Mr. Lenco and Mr. Dawud with a mixed feeling of how the interviews were handled. After debating with myself for long I came up with the following comment, observation and opinion. I have tried my best, not to be emotional as well us not to take side, rather suggest what can be constructive for our common cause. I, similarly, request all readers to give rational and unbiased comment, so that it will make all of us a civilized citizens, who can understand our long term common interest. Read more…
Three journalists and seven bloggers, in prison since April, accused of plotting “to destablize the nation”.
July 18, 2014 (Al Jazeera) — A group of Ethiopian bloggers and journalists held in jail for nearly three months have been charged with terrorism for having links to an outlawed group and for planning attacks, a judge said.
The seven members of the blogging collective Zone Nine and three journalists were arrested in April, prompting an outcry from rights groups who said the case was an assault on press freedom.
“They took training in how to make explosives and planned to train others,” Judge Tareke Alemayehu told the court on Friday. Read more…

Since the late 19th century the Oromo people have been under Ethiopian colonial occupation, domination, and exploitation. This means, our people have been suffering a century of humiliation and exploitation. It began with Goban Daaccee’s treason in his collaboration with Menelik II in his conquest of Oromiyaa that stretched to the present day OPDO’s collaboration with Meles Zenawi and his the fascist Tigrayan regime of TPLF to maintain Menelik II’s colonial empire. Having created the OPDO, the TPLF has institutionalized a client-patron relationship in Oromiyaa through political and economic devices. Since its creation, the OPDO has been fighting local battles- political and military for its patron. In the prison cells in Oromiyaa, the TPLF has built methods of human destructiveness. It is here, the torturers, concentration camp guards, and death squad members have been undertaking series of brutalizing acts against their Oromo victims to dehumanize them before killing them. The unity of the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) is the first step in the struggle to end this colonial occupation and its crimes. Read more…
