The good diagnosis leads to the perfect treatment (Dr. Baaroo Keno Deressa)

The good diagnosis leads to the perfect treatment

By Dr. Baaroo Keno Deressa *

image.pngIn medical terminology diagnostic means the act of identifying a disease, illness, or problem by examining someone or something. Diagnosis is a statement or conclusion that describes the reason for a disease, illness, or problem. Treatment is the remedie to cure the disease.

The Oromo people are the forefront champion of peace and nonviolent nation in Ethiopian empire. The powerful evidence of these fact is the way of life that Oromo people exercise: Oromo means peace, Oromo means love, Oromo means equality, Oromo means democracy, Oromo means generosity, Oromo means honesty, Oromo means transparency, Oromo means happiness, Oromo means OLF, OLF means Oromo. Despite all unhuman atrocities against the Oromo people by Ethiopian colonialist leaders, the Oromo nation committed to defend his qualities. The Oromo people paid/paying enormous sacrifice to be free in his own country and free from brutality of the colonizers to exercise his golden gifts (mentioned above).

To mention some of the Oromo people struggle to defend his qualities:

  • Raya and Azebo during 1928-30
  • Bale revolt led by hero of the Oromo people general Waqo Guutu in 1960th
  • Mecha-Tulema movement led by hero of the Oromo people general Tadesse Biru in 1965
  • OLF leadership with popular mass movement and imprinting Oromummaa
  • Qube generations supported by Qeerroo leadership with historic mobilization of the Oromo people.

This paper try to explore the current ongoing peace movement led by some Oromo political organization:

My question is who deny the peace?

Who reject the democracy?

Who promote hate?

Who is mother of greediness? ….the answer to all this question is the Ethiopian empire leaders. If really the Ethiopian empire elite try to implement the true peace for all oppressive nation they have to come to the Oromo people and other nations with reconciliation and peace plan (because they are the master of the disaster). But, the Oromo leaders has to concentrate further mobilization of Oromummaa to defend his qualities instead of touring around the western world to promote Ethiopianst agenda. So, the history teach Oromo people, the way of the Ethiopian empire approach brought us again and again death award before the war is started.

The Ethiopian empire (TPLF majesty) Constitution is theoretically sweat but in practice its bitterness is remarkable:

  • It says federalism: but act in a unitary fashion by brushing aside all the divisions of powers between different levels of federation.
  • Federation resource and power control is according to the constitution in the hand of regional state but in practice in the hand of TPLF junta.
  • Constitutionally respect of democracy. While most of Oromo’s support the principles of democracy such as the forming of government based on the will of the majority, respect for the rule of law, and respect for basic freedoms of citizens, the fact remains that in practice, we have tended to have TPLF military rule.
  • Sharing power at the different levels of government from all nations are constitutionally guaranteed, but in practice all key powers are in the hands of TPLF militia’s.

The essential difference between Ethiopian empire leaders and Oromo people is:

One of the greatest challenges of Ethiopian empire leaders is fail to understand the Oromo people. Oromo people is a nation who was created by God for good. A nation who believe in managing political and social disputes peacefully, without lapsing into conflict, or sustain economic growth without creating huge inequalities and respect the rule of law. To do that, setting the rules; hiring persons with the technical expertise and moral competence to interpret the rules or implement the goals of the organizations; and ensuring that the institutions inspire public confidence by being transparent, fair and consistent. But the Ethiopian elite assume this golden gift of Oromo people as ignorance and naïve. That is why the play dirty game always when the Oromo people struggle come to the boiling point.

The real question is why has the task of consensus-building been so difficult among Oromo leaders in order to build our nation. The Oromo people have enormous human and natural resources, patriotic aspirations, let us look at three critical areas:

1-Threats and challenges posed by colonizers and international force: Colonizers claim that there were no Oromo nations exist before and there is no future existence. International force acknowledge that Oromia is the heart of Ethiopia, so their fear is that, if the existence of Oromia become real the imminent death of Ethiopia is guaranteed.

2) The quality of leadership that has confronted these challenges: Our leaders are changed/changing their tactic and strategy time to time due to the enormous pressure by internal and external forces.

3) The fragility of the Oromo political organizations: Some of the Oromo political Organizations are structurally weak, historically poor, their determination is measured by their personal happiness, ego and pocket instead of promoting their people interest; vision less and guided by dormant leaders.

Nations are an important part of a modern society. Nations just don’t happen by historical accident; rather they are built by men and women with vision and resolve. Nation-building is therefore the product of conscious statecraft, not happenstance. Nation-building is always a work-in-progress; a dynamic process in constant need of nurturing and re-invention. Nation-building never stops and true nation-builder never rest because all nations are constantly facing up to new challenges. Nation-building is therefore about building the tangible and intangible threads that hold a political entity together and gives it a sense of purpose.

What is to be done?

Historical experience teaches us that a successful struggle against a colonial state depends on the linking of the socio-economic struggles that engage the attention of the masses with the pro-democracy, freedom fighters, intellectuals with diverse professionalism.

Yes I agree with respected hero of the Oromo people Mr Bekele Gerba who says we have to persistent in demanding and defending our right in our land and in our backyard. So dear brothers and sisters at this critical point instead of continuing this aspiration of our hero at this boiling point, touring in the western country in the name of peace, it seems to me ignoring historic quality of Oromummaa.

Here is my proposition:

-Call our mothers to take her cooking material and come to the Finfinnee palace

-Call our brothers and sisters to take their torture signs on their body and come to the Finfinnee palace

-Call our students to take their pen and paper to come to the Finfinnee palace

-Call our farmers to take their farming tools and come to the Finfinnee palace

-Call our doctors to take their white coat and come to the Finfinnee palace

-Call our lawyers to take the article of respect the rule of law and come to the finfinne palace

-Call our nurses to take the infusion material and come to the Finfinnee palace

-Call our politicians to take the truth of Oromo people and their deeds in defending

their people to Finfinnee palace

-Call our rich people to take their heart and mind and throw their fear in the garbage and come to the Finfinnee palace

-Call all defenders of human rights and peace lovers to take flag of peace and come to the Finfinnee palace.

-Call our elderly and sick people to lay down in front of their doors

If we are working to this end we will unify the fighting forces and peace movement and unity of our people to enhance our freedom and freedom of all oppressive nations.

I would like to end my letter by reiterating that nations are built by men and women who have the will and vision to accomplish greatness, not for themselves, their immediate families and friends, but for their country. I believe that if we can find the will to offer such a leadership, and support it by strong and dependable political and economic institutions, we will find a way to our national greatness.

Victory to the Oromo people!

Why is the EU funding Ethiopia’s repression of land rights defenders? (Thomson Reuters Foundation News)

Why is the EU funding Ethiopia’s repression of land rights defenders?

by Nyikaw Ochalla | Anywaa Survival Organisation
Monday, 18 July 2016 17:30 GMT

This story is part of Our new website shining a light on land and property rights around the world

* Any views expressed in this article are those of the author and not of Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Opponents of the Ethiopian government’s policies have faced violence, but the EU has continued to provide funding for its commercial land deal projectsOn Friday, the EU and German government announced the agreement of providing the Government of Ethiopia with 3.8 Million euro for a project to facilitate large-scale commercial land deals amid wide spread human rights abuses and brutal repression of its opponents. The EU and German government state that the project will “support responsible agricultural investment in Ethiopia” and establish “mechanisms to facilitate productive investments in agriculture by national and international private investors.”

The launch of the 3.8 Million Euro project to “support agricultural investments in Ethiopia” comes exactly one year and four months after the government arrested seven community activists to block their participation in a workshop on food and land issues in Nairobi, Kenya. Three of these activists continue to languish in an Ethiopian jail, under the spurious charge of “terrorism”.

Ethiopia is among African countries promoting large-scale commercial agricultural investments that deny the right of the affected communities for active involvement and free, prior and informed consent. In past few years, the government policy has received strong criticism from journalists and activists leading to the government suspending the implementation of its land deal policy in March 2016.

Despite great concerns for its human rights records against Ethiopian food, land rights and human rights defenders and journalists, Ethiopian government remains to be strongly supported by major donor countries and institutions. The World Bank that funded the Ethiopian controversial villagisation programme and facilitated major development projects in the country has been heavily criticised for ignoring the arrest of food and land rights activists Pastor Omot Agwa Okwoy who was World Bank Inspection Panel translator in 2014, Ashinie Astin and Jemal Oumar for their effort to attend a food security workshop in Nairobi in March 2015.

The three activists remain behind bars, charged under Ethiopian controversial counter-terrorism law. The government persecution has failed to present any evidence to support the counter-terrorism charges brought against them. They were denied legal representation and detained without charges for six months.

The three activists are scheduled to appear again in court this Tuesday, July 19, 2016. The organisations listed below, as well as the EU Addis delegation, have been closely following the case. The organisations are Anywaa Survival Organisation, GRAIN, Oakland Institute, Bread for All, etc.

In recent years, numerous opponents of the Ethiopian government’s land policies have been arrested, beaten and even killed, while many communities have been forcefully evicted from their lands to make way for large scale agricultural projects.

There can be no responsible investment in large-scale agricultural projects when communities do not have the right to freely express and assert their opposition to projects affecting their lands.

The announcement by the EU and German government, who not only are well aware of the Ethiopian government’s repression of opponents to its land policies but also have been following up the court hearings, are sending a message that the lives of Ethiopians can be sacrificed for the profits of their corporations.

OLF Statement On the war Crime committed against OLA members by Ethiopian army agents

OLF Statement in .pdf format available here:  OLF Statement July 2016

OLF Statement On the war Crime committed against OLA members by Ethiopian army agents

Oromo Liberation FrontAfter it was thoroughly defeated by the Oromo Liberation Army (OLA), the colonial army of the dictatorial regime of Ethiopia murdered members of the OLA by using poison in drinking water. This criminal and savage act is totally against a binding part of international law in the conduct of warfare.  It is against the Geneva Protocol, a treaty that prohibits the use of poison in warfare.

The colonial army has continued to operate all over Oromia with the aim of holding back
the fast advancing Oromo people’s liberation struggle. In the military engagement
between the OLA and the Ethiopian colonial army on June 20-23, 2016 in south-eastern
Oromia, the OLA completely defeated the Ethiopian army unit. The Ethiopian army unit,
supported by “special force” was on search and destroy mission of the OLA in the Baalee
region of Elkarree, Gooroo and Haroo Dibbee districts. The OLA totally foiled the
mission when it killed 27 and wounded 18 of the enemy forces. In addition, the heroic
OLA captured four enemy soldiers and large quantities of military hardware. Thus, the
OLA annihilated the enemy forces and successfully foiled its mission to destroy the OLA.

The ongoing and recently intensified Oromo people’s peaceful struggle for liberation and
the advancing activities of OLA has greatly worried the Ethiopia regime and it is on the
verge of losing hope of survival. As a result, in its recent engagement with the OLA the
regime’s rogue army took a disparate act that clearly violates and contradicts the
international norm of warfare. After a recent encounter with the OLA and its total defeat,
the enemy Army poisoned members of the OLA. In Qaachan district of Baalee zone, the
enemy in a cowardly act poisoned the water well found in the locality of Gola Qararrii. As
a result, five members of the OLA were martyred instantly after drinking water from the
poisoned well.

In a similar situation, in 1981 the colonial army agents poisoned and killed a platoon of
the OLA in western Oromia. Thus, it has become the culture of the Ethiopian colonial
army to use inhumane and illegal means to fight the OLA. Such acts are a crime
under any manner of encounter of opposing forces and it is against the peace and
security of mankind and it constitutes a war crime.

The cowardly atrocities committed against the OLA members is a sign of
desperation and hopelessness of the Ethiopian regime that considers poisoning,
continued intimidation, killing, imprisonment and exiling of Oromo
revolutionaries, will not dampen the Oromo people’s determination and
commitment to heroically struggle for freedom and dignity.  The OLF takes this
latest action of the regime as an intensification of its war against the OLF and the
Oromo people. The OLF will continue to defend itself and the liberation struggle
and calls upon Oromo people to intensify its struggle of self-defense by any
means necessary!

We also call on the international community to put pressure on the rogue regime
in Ethiopia to respect the international norm of warfare and not to resort to
barbarity, commit war crimes and to stop the military and financial support to the
criminal regime.

Victory to the Oromo People!

Ethiopia blocks Facebook and other social media for exams (BBC News)

“…

Facebook down

Daniel Berhane, the editor of Horn Affairs magazine, said on Twitter: “This is a dangerous precedent. There is no transparency about who took the decision and for how long.”

In May, university entrance exams were cancelled after pictures of the test circulated on social media. A group supporting protests for greater rights for Ethiopia’s Oromo people claimed responsibility for the leak.

Traditional media in Ethiopia are tightly controlled by the government, leaving many reliant on social media to access and pass on information critical of the authorities.

In 2012, Skype was taken down in Ethiopia amid a clampdown on VoIP (voice over internet protocol) calls. The government claimed that the service was being used for fraudulent purposes.

Ethiopia Wins UN Security Council Seat Despite Questionable Rights Record (AFKInsider)

Ethiopia Wins UN Security Council Seat Despite Questionable Rights Record

By Kevin Mwanza Published: July 1, 2016, 7:26 am

AFKInsider


Ethiopia won the only available seat for an African nation at the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday, replacing Angola, whose two-year term will come to an end this this year.

The East African nation, which in recent months has had questionable human rights records during the Oromo protests and clashed with neighboring Eritrea over a border dispute, will start its tenure as a non-permanent member of the UN body in January 2017.

It was the only African nation that participated in the contest to replace exiting members of the UN body, Times Live reported.

“Ethiopia is an important player in terms of peace and security on the African continent. It has been for a number of years the largest troops contributor on peacekeeping in Africa,” Jakkie Cilliers, Head of African Futures and Innovation at the Institute for Security Studies, told Africanews.

“It hosts the African Union and in the horn of Africa, it is extremely significant in Somalia, in Sudan and elsewhere. Si I think that this reflects in a sense Ethiopia’s status as a, emerging peace and security power in Africa.”

Felix Horne, a horn of Africa researcher at Human Right Watch (HRW), questioned the decision to elect Ethiopia which “has a horrendous human rights record to the Security Council.

The rights group recently published a report on how the Ethiopian government mishandles a largely peaceful Oromo protest and said the country’s security forces killed about 400 people in the one month clash.

“Despite the dire human rights situation, Ethiopia is a now a member of both the Security Council and the Human Rights Council,” Horne said in an opinion piece published on the HRW website.

“Ethiopia should stop hiding its own human rights record from international scrutiny, and … cooperate fully with UN special mechanisms,” he added.

Under the UN Charter, the Security Council has primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. It calls disputing parties and attempts to settle their differences through peaceful means, recommending methods of adjustment or terms of settlement.

In some cases, the Security Council can resort to imposing sanctions or even authorise the use of force to maintain or restore international peace and security.

The Security Council also recommends to the General Assembly the appointment of the Secretary-General and the admission of new Members to the United Nations. And, with the General Assembly, it elects the judges of the International Court of Justice.

A new Ethiopia must have no business keeping old, repressive institutions! (Addis Standard Editorial)

Editorial: A new Ethiopia must have no business keeping old, repressive institutions!

As you walk by the area, nothing looks out of ordinary. It is a bustling part of Piassa overcrowded with – as many parts of Piassa are – bars, shops, hotels and restaurants. Pedestrians go back and forth past it oblivious of its presence (or perhaps terrified of it.)

The Ethiopian Federal Police Force Central Bureau of Criminal Investigation, known in Amharic by its bone chilling name, Ma’ekelawi, is a time defying institution which has been around for more than half a century, and has been used (and abused) for the same purpose: to detain, without due legal process, people alleged to have committed grave crimes against the state, the people and the constitution.

But describing Ma’ekelawi simply as “a place of detention” is a gross parody of its fundamental purpose for existence. It isn’t just a place of detention; it is, by any definition, a state-run “Torture Chamber” built by an extinct repressive government but preserved and run by a government which proclaims itself ‘democratic’.

Why is it still around?

This is a question that directly points at the essential explanation for the very existence of Ma’ekelawi as a tool of repression: lack of political will by the incumbent to render the brutal practices inside Ma’ekelawi irrelevant as per the values, principles, and rules of the current constitution and that of international covenants Ethiopia is a signatory to.

Owing to that Ma’ekelawi remains to be the only constant throughout the eras of monarchy, socialist totalitarianism, and federalist devolution, which indicates that the nature of the Ethiopian State is, at its core, unchanged; that it is the same; that it is a state which drives its authority (and therefore legitimacy) from force.

This is not a conclusion this magazine is asserting based on allegations. Dissect the often too conspicuous correlation between political dissent and the people overpopulating Ma’ekelawi suspected of (and charged with) crimes against the state, the people and the constitution. It will give you an idea or two on why successive states chose to keep that institution intact even as it continued depriving, in most instances, due legal process to the people under its custody.

It is no hush-hush that the overwhelming prisoners in Ma’ekelawi are political prisoners brought from all over the country. That leads to the question of why is that so.

Tales from “Chambers of torture”: Remembering the past (Addis Standard)

Tales from “Chambers of torture”: Remembering the past

Abera Tolla

Abera tollaIt was January 1978, the height of Derg’s Red Terror campaign. At 21, I was a last year student at the business department of the Addis Abeba University (AAU). Derg’s campaign of terror was targeting university students. Its brutal crackdown against the Ethiopian Peoples’ Revolutionary Party (EPRP) and the All Ethiopian Socialist Movement (MEISON) forced students to give up on peaceful struggles and take arms. The majority of students from Tigray and Eretria in the north have already left the campus en mass and the remaining, especially Oromo students and students from other parts of the country, were participating in urban student movements, which made universities the prime targets of Derg’s brutality.

The season was a term exam season but at night the arrests intensified; that was when I was taken by the police while walking to campus to spend the night. About 50 Oromo students were also arrested the same night. The police first took us to the Headquarters of the Derg where we were joined by hundreds of other Oromo students; many of us were suspected of having links with the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF).

There and then at the Derg’s headquarters the torturer began.

The office had something strange. The tools hanging from the wall made it look like a car garage and there was Joseph Stalin’s picture hanging on one side of the wall. There were metal knobs hanging all over the wall, and metal rods were littered at every corner; rubber ropes and water pipes were also hanging on thick wooden frames. Then it occurred to me that the place was no garage, but a torture chamber. The tools were no spare parts but torture tools.

That was the office where my torture ordeal began. The first night was the hardest. They removed my shoes and hanged me upside down. They used every tool available to torture me through the night. The painful one was the beating with the rubber ropes on the soles of my feet.  When I woke up the next morning, I found myself lying in front of an elderly colonel [name withheld] who I thought would have a father like figure. He looked at me and without uttering a word he called for his deputy and ordered him to bring a kit. It looked like a medical kit and I was relieved because I thought they were going to treat my bleeding feet. I was mistaken. After an exchange of a brief eye contact between the two men the deputy pulled a big scissor out of the box and started piercing my feet, he pulled my toe nails and finally poured concentrated iodine on my feet. At this point, I passed out…..I have no recollection of what happened after that. I woke up the next day and saw that my feet were bandaged. I felt better but when they called me again and started torturing me while my feet were still bandaged I realized that I haven’t experienced the half of the pain to come – when they unwrapped the bandage, it took away the flesh from my sole.

After months of endless torture at the Derg’s headquarters, I was sent to Ma’ekelawi. My feet were rotten and the rest of my body was in a very bad shape. I was convinced that I was sent to Ma’ekelawi to die. Instead I was welcomed by a group of other detainees who have gone through similar experiences and have beaten the odds. There were prisoners from all over the country and most of them were, like me, university students.

In Ma’ekelawi I joined prisoners at block number seven. It was a block where notorious prisoners (in other words political dissenters) were kept. I was warmly welcomed by fellow inmates. They took care of me: gave me milk, and washed my wounded feet with feathers and salt water to prevent further infection (there were prisoners who died after developing gangrene as a result of infections.)

The room was 4×4 square meters so there wasn’t much of a space where I can comfortably lay to nurse my battered body, but my cellmates fixed a special space so I can nurse myself with as little space as possible. One of my cellmates was Yibreha Nega, the brother of TPLF veteran Sibehat Nega. Yibreha was a loving man; I remember he was the first one to invite me for a cigarette; he said it would help me cop with life inside Ma’ekelawi.  Sadly, Yibreha, who was a teacher, never made it out of there. He was one of the hundreds who were called at night to be killed. I lost six of my close friends in the first two years alone. They were taken out of our cells and killed either by hanging or firing squads.

Aside from the torture, which never stops, to be incarcerated in Ma’ekelawi was like to die every day. Every night our friends’ names would be called for interrogations. Some would come back broken both mentally and physically, and some never made it back. There was a high turnover of prisoners and I didn’t know whether I would be the next or not; all I knew was that the next day I was still alive. But I refused to let that fear take the best of me, so shortly after my feet started healing I began cleaning our block; we created good friendship to help one another get through the bad times. In my group I was selected to be in charge of hygiene and finance. The feeling of fraternity was what kept us going; Ma’ekelawi changed us all and we changed it too.

Out of the 10 years I spent in jail, I spent the first five in Ma’ekelawi. After that I was transferred to “Kerchele”, another notorious prison where the African Union (AU) headquarters is located at and where I went through another life changing experience…

Tells from “Chambers of torture”: Living the present

 Abel Wabela

AbelOn April 25 2014, the day Abel Wabela was taken to his cell at Ma’ekelawi, he was overcome by a feeling of confusion and physical exhaustion. Once inside the center, “they took my belt, my shoe; they opened the door of the cell and [pushed] me inside,” he remembers. The room was pitch-dark; he couldn’t make head or tail out of it. Other inmates who had already been inside gave him blankets and “I fell asleep right away”. It was only the next morning when he woke up that Abel was able to fully grasp his new reality.

Abel was no stranger to tales about Ma’ekelawi. Since he started following Ethiopian politics, he had been aware of the horrible stories coming out of the shady institution and he had read some of the human rights reports with strong allegations. But now he had to come face to face and get a taste of it himself.

The cell was very cold, Abel says. Inside there were seven other detainees. All he could see are plastic bags and buckets. The mattresses to sleep on were not thick enough to resist the cold coming from the cement floors. His cellmates (some of whom had been there for quite a long time) explained to him that the mats used to be even thinner. They also told him that twice a day, in the early morning and late afternoon, they’d have bathroom breaks; and they would go outside for sunlight for fifteen minutes. Besides that, the rooms were locked all the time.

He didn’t see his lawyer or family for three weeks. “And after they allowed me to contact them, once a week that is, on Fridays, it went on very irregularly. There were days when I didn’t get to see them,” he confides to this magazine.

Sleep deprivation was commonplace as he was often called in the middle of the night for interrogation.

The interrogation predominantly focused on the origin, direction and purpose of Zone9, a blogging collective of which Abel was a founding member. “I told them we were just a bunch of young people concerned about our country and people,” he says, “and our aim was to make a platform for public discourse in which ideas can run free. They were not happy with that. They kept on asking what will happen after ideas ran free.”

The interrogation went sour after Abel dared to confront one of his interrogators. “I asked him boldly why [the ruling] EPRDF was afraid of ideas. He went totally mad. He started kicking me like a crazy person,” he says struggling to control his emotions. “Before I was jailed I already have a problem in my left ear. So when he started kicking me I asked him not to hit me on my left ear. But he did exactly that.” After being made to return to his cell, Abel cried all night long. “My ear was echoing all night.” The next morning he explained his situation to the person in charge and asked for a physician. “But he said it was not a big deal.”

It was not the first time that Abel was tortured. Nor was it the last until he was set free a year and half later.

“I was first hit by the interrogators after they asked me about my ethnicity and I told them I prefer to be identified simply as Ethiopian,” he says. He brought this incident at the court when his case was being seen. “The judge didn’t do anything. In fact when I returned back to Ma’ekelawi my interrogators told me that there was nothing I’d bring by reporting them to the court.”

The most horrible torture came later though, when “I refused to sign a statement of confession they brought. I told them that that was not my word and if they wanted me to sign it they had to make some amendments.”  But they resorted to force instead. “They stroke the soles on my feet with a stick and computer power cable. When I still refused to sign they took me, still handcuffed, to a dark room and tortured me more. They even let me lay down and stumped on me, including my face,” he says. Eventually he signed the paper but only after they made the amendments he demanded.

It’s been six months now since Abel left prison. But the 84 days he spent at Ma’ekelawi before he was transferred to Qilinto, a prison in the outskirt south of the city, do still have a profound impact on him. “I used to be more conservative and used to want to control everything in my life. Now I am not like that. I tried to live smoothly but all of a sudden some unexpected details trigger a memory,” he says. He particularly cites an incident in which he was attending a court case and saw his abusive interrogator standing by casually. “He was there like nothing happened, like nothing happens. He was just another man like everybody else. But he was allowed to abuse me.”

Before being jailed, Abel worked as a tools engineer at Ethiopian Airlines. “But they terminated my contract even though I have papers from the court declaring my innocence,” he says. He is now in two court cases with his former employer; he has sued Ethiopian “for their unconstitutional and illegal act” and they on the other hand have sued him for breach of contract. “When I was hired, I took a training and singed a contract to commit for seven years. Otherwise I had to pay seventy thousand ETB. Now after terminating my job they want their money back,” he says with a tinge of ironic smile of a man whose life is hanging in the balance after his experience at Ma’ekelawi.

Waamicha Dirqama Lammummaa: Artist Zarihun Wadaajoof haa qaqqabnnu!

Most of you are aware of the life situation he passed through, but you can refresh your memories from social medias.

Currently, Zarihun Wadajo’s health and life condition is deteriorating. The situation becomes worse if immediate action will not be taken. He needs Urgent Medical Attention and he needs support from Oromo people for whom he sacrificed his entire life for their freedom. As many know, he has been imprisoned, tortured and even feared to death several times under the previous two regimes. Especially, he suffered a lot under the current TPLF government for his resistance and commitment to Oromo people in his country.

Watch some of his famous music:

Drivetime, 27 Jun The ‘Ethiopia rising’ narrative and the Oromo protests

A new report published by Human Rights Watch on the Oromo protests depicts a disturbing picture of a government that thrives on systematic repression and official violence. The report, which puts the death toll from the seven-month-long protest at more than 400, exposes the “Ethiopia rising” narrative for what it is: a political Ponzi scheme. Underneath the selective highlighting of Ethiopia’s story of renaissance and transformation lies a Janus-faced reality in which the triumph of some has meant the utter submission of others.

Ethiopia is to be a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for two years. The country may spread peace while on blue helmet missions abroad, but critics complain that political space at home is contracting.

The vote at the UN General Assembly electing Ethiopia as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council turned out to be largely a formality because Ethiopia ran unopposed in its regional grouping. Africa heads of state and government had agreed on Ethiopia as a joint candidate at their summit in January, when Kenya and the Seychelles withdrew from the contest.

Ethiopia may have run unopposed but it still had to pick up two thirds of the votes cast in the 193-nation assembly. It was backed by numerous African states, including Rwanda whose candidacy Ehtiopia backed in 2013/2014, and by Brazil. Brazilian Foreign Minister Mauro Viera said Ethiopia “with its extensive experience in regional, African and global peacekeeping missions” could make “an immense contribution” to the UN Security Council.

Regional gendarme

Ethiopia’s participation and experience in peacekeeping in Africa was a trump card in its bid for a non-permanent seat on the Security Council. Its contingent of 8,000 troops – men and women – on peacekeeping duties is the largest in the world. (The official promotional literature says Ethiopia has the biggest number of female peacekeepers worldwide.)

As a founding member and host country of the Organization of African Unity (OAU), the precursor of the African Union (AU), Ethiopia is a major pillar in the continent’s peace and security architecture. Africa’s second most populous state also chairs the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), mediating in conflicts on the Horn of Africa, most recently during the strenuous negotiations between the warring parties in South Sudan.

Ethiopia and Liberia signed the UN Charter as founding members in 1945. Ethiopia has represented Africa at the Security Council twice in the past, the last time in 1989/90. It contributed troops to the UN in Korea in the 1950s and 60s (when 121 Ethiopian soldiers lost their lives over three years) and in the Congo. Ethiopia pursed its candidacy for 2017/18 with some vigor, it would have been disappointed if it had ended in failure.

Crackdown on dissent

Critics of Ethiopia says its participation in blue helmet missions in Liberia, Burundi, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan and other conflict zones is considerably more successful than its efforts to create democracy and stability at home. The country, with a population of some 90 million, is run by an authoritarian regime. Journalists, human rights campaigners and opposition activists complain that the political space is contracting and that anti-terror legislation is being used to crack down on dissent.

The Ethiopian foreign ministry says it wishes to use its non-permanent seat on the Security Council to “promote peace and security through dialogue and peaceful conflict resolution.” This prompts the question why Ethiopia has been so belligerent in its recent border clashes and verbal exchanges with its neighbor Eritrea.

In the promotional literature for its candidacy, Ethiopia said it “wanted to expand the role of regional security deals.” So why then does Ethiopia ignore the ruling of the Boundary Commission defining its border with Eritrea?

Chatting with DW on Facebook on Tuesday, a number of Ethiopians spoke of the changes they hoped the Security Council seat would bring. “Perhaps there will be change within the country,” said Kibrom Tadesse. Nesta Worku is more pessismistic. “Which African country protects human rights or democracy? The UN Security Council can’t do anything about the African heads of state – they repress human rights.”

In his historic speech to the UN General Assembly in 1963, Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie said that “the Charter of the United Nations expresses the noblest aspirations of man” only to add that “these, too, are only words; their value depends wholly on our will to observe and honor them and give them content and meaning.”

More than 50 years later, Ethiopia is no longer an empire but one of Africa’s “lion states.” As such, it will be expected to demonstrate that “African solutions for African problems” really is a promise that can be kept, especially in the field of peace and security policy. There is one particular project which Ehtiopia is expected to nudge forward – the African Peace and Security Architecture – the main plank of which is a rapid reaction force based in Addis Ababa.

Kazakhstan, Sweden, Ethiopia and Bolivia have been elected to serve on the UN Security Council for two years as non-permanent members.

The UN General Assembly of 193 nations has one more non-permanent seat to fill after two rounds of voting on Tuesday.

The five elected countries will begin a two-year stint on the council on January 1, taking their seats alongside the five permanent council members – Britain, France, China, Russia and the United States.

The other five non-permanent members are: Egypt, Japan, Senegal, Ukraine and Uruguay.

As the most powerful body of the United Nations, the Security Council can impose sanctions, endorse peace accords and authorise the use of military force.

It also oversees 16 peacekeeping missions in the world, with a budget of about $8bn.

Italy was lobbying fiercely for a council seat, portraying itself as a crossroads country in the Mediterranean and touting its experience dealing with the refugee crisis.

Italy was also seen as a player in efforts to pull Libya out of chaos.

The Netherlands, home to the International Criminal Court and other world tribunals, played up its commitment to international justice while Sweden highlighted its role as a major aid donor.

Vying for a council seat for the first time since its 1991 independence from the Soviet Union, Kazakhstan has been criticised for cracking down on journalists and political activists.

Thailand’s rights record has also been questioned, after the military leadership, which seized power in May 2014, has banned political activity and ramped up prosecutions under tough sedition and royal defamation laws.

Is the transplantation that TPLF looking for is compatible?

Is the transplantation that TPLF looking for is compatible?

Dr. Baaroo Keno Deressa

For the first time in the history of Oromo people struggle against the colonialism the current TPLF colonialist regime is panicked and disoriented. It is impossible for colonialist to survive, primarily because the system of colonialism needs some blood to suck. Colonialist regime in general to be like an eagle, but now the TPLF colonialist regime more like a vulture. It used to be strong enough to go and suck anybody’s blood whether they were strong or not. But now it has become more cowardly, like the vulture, and it can only suck the blood of the helpless. For more than 100 years the Ethiopian empire colonialist ruler suck the blood of defenseless Oromo people and other nations of the Ethiopian empire. Now the Oromo people get united to declare their right on this earth to be a human being, to be respected as a human being, to be free from all kinds of colonization and to build a democratic Republic of Oromia. To acquire those God given right the qube generation of gallant Oromo sons and daughters across Oromia confront with bare hands the well-equipped and organized TPLF military forces and paid and still paying grateful sacrifices. After that confrontation the TPLF regime get panicked by the reaction of the Oromo people and start to act like the vulture. The TPLF government thought that the Eritrean government is internationally condemned, sanction makes the Eritrean people economy weaker and it is a perfect time to act like vulture.

The TPLF government has invested millions of dollar and enormous human power in the form of military, security agents and diplomacy to slowdown the OROMO people movement for freedom. As I have already mentioned in my previous article that TPLF is critically sick and looking for transplantation. Unfortunately there were no matched organ were found to heal the TPLF disease in Ethiopian empire. The problem is in the course of learning the art of administering, TPLF have committed such a grave mistake, including risking the life of his fellow Tigrians. The flown blood of innocent Oromo people and other nations brought them insomnia. The Oromo people and other nations in Ethiopian empire find it difficult to forgive them. So the TPLF is now looking organ transplantation in Eritrea. The question is, is there any organ available with good compatibility? TPLF betray Eritrean people many times: (In Oromo: namni galfata nyaate akka aadutti du’a).

In medical terminology, organ transplantation is often the only treatment for end state organ failure, such as liver, kidney and heart failure. The procurement of organs for transplantation involves the removal of organs from the bodies of deceased persons. This removal must follow legal requirements, including the definition of death and consent. Immunosuppressive therapy after organ transplantation is paramount for long-term outcomes and prevention of organ rejection.

TPLF start war with Eritrea for several reasons. But not for conventional war, it is an attentional war (beginning of transplantation process) to attract the Eritrean people and government attention in order to get new protection like previous one to contend the emerging Oromo people force. To be clear I would like to mention some attentional point of TPLF:

1) Fear of the future consequences of their choices and Tigray people fate if the force behind the united Oromo people control entire country (from behind the betrayed Eritrean people and from in front the wounded lion of Oromo people).

2) To correct his behavior of blackmailing Eritrean people in the international arena and excuse his betrayal of Eritrean people and begging the Eritrean government to expel all rebel groups like OLF, ONLF and Ginbot-7…etc)

3) To sign death-life/consent contract in order to get good transplantation (support) to maximize the effect of immune suppressive (to guarantee the continuation of Oromo people and other nations oppression).

4) To divert the international attention and internal movement against the TPLF act of barbarism in Oromia.

5) Searching extra partner to protect illegally collected millions of cash money and Gold.

To know about this war between TPLF and Eritrea, it is better to understand the basic underlying process. The TPLF was assisted and guided by Eritrean people to be competent and confident in order to solidify their current position. During those solid support of Eritrean people they pass through many difficulties and challenges. I am not going to enter into the details of all evidences. But to be clear enough let me mention the highlight:

1- Mahbare gesgisti hizbi Tigray (phase of disorganized movements)

2- Tegadilo harinet hizbi Tigray (phase of partially organized movements)

3- Hizbawi wayyane harinet Tigray (TPLF) (phase of well-organized under support of Eritrean people)

4- Marxist-Leninist League of Tigray (phase of internationally appearances)

5- Artificial collection-EPRDF (TPLF, OPDO, ANDM, SEPDM….) (phase of power control under support of Eritrean people).

The Eritrean people raised the TPLF with biological breast milk without mixing artificial bottle milk. They helped them to thrive from Mahbare gesgisti hizbi Tigray to Artificial collection EPRDF Finfinnee palace. After they brought them to Finfinnee palace they assisted them to walk and run. Later on also they encourage them to crash the OLF force and control entire country. TPLF rewarded them with painful bite of their mother breast.

So, the dilemma of TPLF is in one side the act of betrayal to Eritrean people and in another side the act of barbarism against Oromo people and other nations of Ethiopian empire.

Between this dilemma there are hundreds of Tigreans origins who became millionaires overnight and some of them is still expanding their mafia practices to be billionaires while the Oromo’s and other nations are looking for daily bread and suffering in various prison camp without any criminal act. To keep these practices safe and intact TPLF redefine the meaning of democratic governance and travel to Eritrean for transplantation (extra protection).

The real definition of Democratic government is a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them either directly or through their elected agents;… a state of society characterized by nominal equality of rights and privileges.

TPLF definition of democracy is very simple, that is respect the rule of gun, to give you good example of rule of gun is enough to mention two traitors (Ambassador Dina Mufti and Ambassador Girma Birru those two claims to be an Oromo, denies the Human Rights Watch report over killings of more than 400 Oromo protesters by TPLF security forces because they are afraid to be killed by TPLF security forces). According to the TPLF rule of gun if you are not participate in their barbaric practices such as (killing and torturing innocent civilians, students, children and women, imprisoning and humiliating political opponents and intellectuals…etc) you will face severe punishment. I am not surprised with their way of thinking because those so called leaders of TPLF come to power from the bush straight to the palace without having any training in public administration (except the training they received in dadabit on how to kill their alleged enemies mostly Oromo people and other nation in Ethiopian empire). But what the TPLF leaders is still not understand is, to be head of a nation is totally different than dadabit way. Here people expect you to respect the rule of law i.e. that means citizens should not be killed arbitrarily, ill-treated (torturing) or kept in jail without charges or trial. TPLF leaders are blinded by ignorance and arrogance and oblivious of the future consequences of their choices. The Oromo people responded them with dedication and firm stand to accelerate their struggle for freedom to these desperate measures of the TPLF regime.

TPLF leaders I am so sorry to inform you that there is no compatible organ is/will found in Eritrea too, to offer you the adequate transplantation. According to Oromo quote” Tokko goyomun gadhmudha lama goyomun harumadha” In English “Ones cheated ignorance twice is stupidity”. So the Eritrean people are still memorizing the painful bite, the international coup funded and guided by TPLF and their occupied land Badame.

The good news for Eritrean people is stand with Oromo people. The Oromo people can/will offer eternal stability and prosperous to the Eritrean people. The Oromo people is 200% trustful (when we talk about trust, don’t mix up with OPDO, OPDO is mutilated, they have chromosomal abnormality). So it is time to redoubling the support and assistance to the Oromo people struggle for freedom and justice.

The goal of my people and me is always been the same, to be free in our country and free from brutality of the colonizers, free from the evil act of the Ethiopian empire ruler and live in peace. You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom. Everybody would like to reach his objectives peacefully. If we could get our freedom and respect the will of our people by peaceful means, well and good. But I’m also a realist. The Oromo people are the forefront champion of peace and nonviolent nation in Ethiopian empire. But that course brought again and again death award before the war is started. When a person places the proper value on freedom, there is nothing in the globe that he will not do to acquire that freedom.

Victory to the Oromo people!
