After the disintegration of Ogaden, and the appallaing terror Zenawi’s Tigray thugs spread there, Oromia seems to be in tumultuous situation; towns rebel, kick out the Tigray pseudo-soldiers of the illegal tyrant Zenawi, only to be subsequently besieged by other military forces camping in the province.
As the revolt expands, Ogadenis, Oromos, Sidamas, Afars and others realize that their future hinges almost exclusively on their willingness, readiness and resoluteness to fight for secession, independence, free and democratic rule, and prosperity.
Only the Amharas make the exception, and accustomed as they were to tyrannize other peoples under either monarchical (Haile Selassie) or communist (Mengistu) order, they formed a political alliance named Kinijit to disreputably attack what they call ‘ethicization’ of the Abyssinian politics. When they terrorized for many long decades other ethnic groups and nations, it did not occur to them to notice that they were oppressing …. other nations; to that extent the Abyssinian obscurantism and heinous racism had been embedded in their minds. However, we will dedicate a series of articles to the Kinijit smiley pestilence that threatens to replace Tigray dictatorship with Amhara cruelty.
It is clear that the Oromos, the Ogadenis, the Afars, the Sidamas, and many other oppressed peoples of Abyssinia (totaling 70% of the country’s entire population) do not need either Amhara or Tigray contamination. The present borders of “Ethiopia” are not sustainable anymore.
Oromos, Ogadenis, Sidamas, Afras and others will all have a flourishing future, forming independent states (like in the case of defunct Yugoslavia in Europe), exploiting their natural resources, and mobilizing their Human Resources, who fled the most loathed, tyrannical bogus-Ethiopia to obtain Ph. Ds in various parts of the world.
The rise of the Internet Global Village left the Abyssinian tyrants of ‘Ethiopia’ with very few chances; hundreds of websites and blogs of Ogadenis, Oromos, Sidamas and others inform the remotest and most underdeveloped villages of Oromia, Sidamaland, Ogaden, and other provinces about the deeds of their exiled compatriots. Hope is therefore revitalized, and this enthusiasm motivates those left behind to repudiate the forces of oppression, the murderous Tigray thugs who shamelessly impersonate “Ethiopian” soldiers.
Cruel tyrant Zenawi will have to deal with this phenomenon of incessant uprising on daily basis; today this village in Oromia, tomorrow that town in Ogaden. With the Tigray soldiers’ coffins queuing back home, Zenawi’s days are numbered.
The entire situation is reflected in a Press Release issued yesterday by the Oromo Liberation Front; we reproduce it here integrally as it reflects perfectly well both, the imminent decomposition of Africa’s most loathed tyranny, and the criminal deeds perpetrated by Zenawi’s soldiers in Oromia.
The TPLF Regime's Appalling Human Rights Violations Must Be Stopped
The Ethiopian government, dominated by a Tigrean minority ethnic group, has continued massive arrest and detention of innocent civilians suspected of opposing the dictatorial regime or supporting the Oromo Liberation Front. For example, in a recent TPLF’s military and security forces expedition into Shambu, a town in East Wallaga, hundreds of innocent civilians were arrested and still linger in detention. The town of Shambu was virtually under a Tigrean siege from July 31, 2007 through August 3, 2007. Among individuals arrested during these raids are:
1. Mosisa Jalata, a pharmacist
2. Gadafa Tolera, project manager of an NGO - Education for Development
3. Tesfaye Hordofa, civil servant
4. Marga Wirtu, a teacher
5. Gudata Ayana, a businessman
6. Dr. Haile, veterinarian
7. Dhaba Kumssa, a businessman
8. Amsalu Tolassa, civil servant
9. Itafa Jirata, civil servant- Shambu Agricultural Office
The Tigrean army also confiscated private properties of the arrested individuals including cash, radios, and mobile phones without any legal process The army in Shambu was guided by a few local renegades.
Arrests also continue in other districts of Horro Guduru. About 10 Oromos including a man named Tadesse Dhinssa, a health officer in Abe Dongoro, are reported jailed in Tullu Wayu. The Tigrean army is now stationed in newly established camps in East Wallaga. We have reliable information, that this wave of arrest and military expansion is also taking place in Abay Choman, Jimma Ganati, Amuru and Jarte as well as other regions of Oromia.
The OLF wants to register its serious concern regarding the deteriorating Human Rights abuse and the grave danger the country is facing under the minority based TPLF’s tyrannical rule. We call upon all concerned governments, international organizations, and NGOs to denounce that TPLF regime’s appalling human rights violations and take all necessary measures to thwart an emerging tragedy.
Victory to the Oromo People!
