Egypt announces 'new vision' for Ethiopia's dam

Posted 8/19/2014

Egypt's Irrigation Minister Hossam El-Moghazi told privately owned Mehwar channel that Egypt has a new "vision" regarding Ethiopia's planned Grand Renaissance Dam ahead of another round of talks in the Sudanese capital.

In a phone interview, El-Moghazi said the Egyptian delegation will head to Khartoum on 24 August for two days of discussions.

"Egypt has a new vision, that will not affect Egypt's water share, and we are expecting that the other party responds to it," said El-Moghazi.

Ethiopian athletes planned to seek asylum

Posted 8/19/2014

Source: The Associated Press, 18-08-2014

EUGENE — One of four Ethiopian athletes who went missing during an international track meet in Eugene told a police officer all of them plan to seek asylum in the United States, according to a newly released University of Oregon police report.

Amanuel Abebe, 17, told the police officer that he and three others on the Ethiopian track team, who are 18, planned to apply for asylum at a U.S. immigration office in Portland on July 28, The Register-Guard reported Sunday.

The runners were reported missing from the World Junior Championships in Eugene over the July 26-27 weekend, fueling some speculation at the time that they were planning to seek political asylum in the U.S.

Three of the athletes were found with acquaintances in Beaverton.

The fourth, Zeyituna Mohammed, was found with acquaintances in Federal Way, Washington.

Mohammed, 18, told a local police officer through an interpreter that she may seek asylum. Ethiopia has seen significant political turmoil and human rights abuses in recent years, and Mohammed said she is afraid to return there, the newspaper reported.

The Oromo Struggle: A generation, Fearless of Death and Detention, will Crumple Mountains

There is an Ethiopian saying, “one would lose what one has in the hand while reaching for more from the upper shelf.” While this selfish individual tries to get hold of more, what one has already have will be scattered all over the place. Lately, in the Habesha camp, fear has spread, and uneasiness has increased likewise.

Soothing, warnings, rebuking, and many others had been tried. Unfortunately, they try to tell us that the source of their problem is the national struggle of the Oromo people. In reality, the aim and goal of the struggle of the Oromo people is to get rid of authoritarian rulers, and thus, to achieve the right to self-determination for the Oromo people – based on international regulations and laws.

The Name of the Abominable Crime is Politicide

The Mass Massacre & Imprisonment of ORA Orphans – Wallaga 1992-93

By Mekuria Bulcha, 27July, 2014

Part two

Introduction

In the first part of this article, published on this website on June 22, 2014 under the title “The Name of the Abominable Crime is Politicide: The Mass Massacre and Imprisonment of ORA Orphans – Wallaga 1992-93,” I described the humanitarian activities of the Oromo Relief Association (ORA) among Oromo refugees in the Sudan in the 1980s and discussed the repatriation of some 1700 orphans, who were taken care of by the association, to Oromia in 1992. As I mentioned in the article, the initial TPLF onslaughts on the fleeing ORA children and their guardians took about three months. The different sources that I consulted indicated that between 170 and 200 children were hunted down and killed or drowned in flight. In addition, an unknown number of their guardians—as well as inhabitants of the districts through which they passed who helped during their flight—were killed during the onslaught. At the start of the onslaught about 300 children were captured and sent to the Dhidheessa concentration camp.

Deportation, torture, and political indoctrination

As mentioned before, most of the children were either placed in the care of the people or were sent away to look for relatives before their teachers and caretakers scattered to hide or flee back to the Sudan to seek refuge. However, the TPLF search for ORA children continued for more than a year after the initial onslaught came to an end.  Apparently, many of the children who escaped the TPLF-forces’ bullets, and who were not arrested during the onslaught were traced, arrested and sent to jail. One of the survivors H.S. (who lives in a country neighboring with Ethiopia) told me:

I was about eight [years] old when the TPLF attacked us. I fled with the other children and adults in our camp.  After sometime, we smaller children, who were unable to keep pace with the rest in the flight, were given to families in different villages along the route. I was placed with a family in a village called Gaara Arbaa. Two of my shelter mates, Kuusaa and Dingata, were also placed in the neighborhood in the same village. However, after a few weeks, the TPLF found and captured us and took us first to Begi town and then to the Dhidheessa prison camp.

Consequently, the number of the ORA children who ended up in the TPLF jails and died whilst kept captive remains unknown. The limited information I could gather confirms that, generally, the children were treated with cruelty in the concentration camp.  In his letter to ORA (see the first part of the article), Raagaa mentions the names of some of the friends he left behind in the Dhidheessa concentration camp grieving that,

The fate of those children mentioned in this note, many hundreds of them, is that they were accused by the TPLF that they were brought up by the OLF and as such need to go through “re-education programs” of the TPLF. Can anybody imagine the children would fight the EPRDF/TPLF back? The truth is the children did not understand anything about the war.

Concerning the TPLF “re-education program,” another informant has also reported that “frequently the children are asked about their attitude towards the EPRDF” and that their “hands are fettered behind their backs” during the interrogations and that “the children’s skin was cut and wounded around their wrists from the rope” with which they were tied. To change their “political attitude,” the TPLF forced the children to participate in a “political education.” The OLF was demonized and the participants (prisoners) were instructed about the “crimes it had committed” and were made to shout anti-OLF slogans at the top of their voices.

Washington DC: Hunger Strike Against the Killings of the Oromo Nation in the Ethiopian Empire

Posted 7/23/2014

The Oromos  in the Washington DC are on hunger strike against the killings and mass arrest of Oromo students in the Ethiopian empire.

                 

                     Oromos protesting Ethiopian government    

The western backed dictatorship in Ethiopian has been killing, prisoning, torturing and forcing to flee the Oromos. More importantly the largest ethnic group is jeopardized from exercising its socio-economic, political and ecological affairs in its homeland, Oromia.

In May 2014, protesting the so called INTEGRATED ADDIS ABABA MASTER PLAN  thousands of Oromo students have taken the stage peacefully through out Oromia; however, hundreds have been killed  by live ammunition.  Eventually tens of thousands arrested, many disappeared and fled.  Moreover, significant number of students dismissed from schooling and denied the graduation. Due to these injustice and subjugation, the Oromos in the Washington DC are on hunger strike for 72 hours, 23-25 August, 2014.

OLF & SLF Joint Statement: Instigating Violence Between the Two Cousins Never Stops Us From Marching to Our Goal

Posted 7/23/2014

Joint Statement By the OLF & SLF, 20 July 2014

JointOLF_SLF2

 

By Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) & Sidama Liberation Front (SLF)

Time and again, we all have witnessed the Tigrayan People’s 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.

The Oromo and the Sidama people are culturally, ethno-linguistically, socially, geo-politically & morally intertwined nations. The two largest Kush cousins also share similar ancestral origins and large expanse of territorial boundaries. The alliance between these two sisterly nations is founded on historical roots, therefore, it is unshakable. Moreover, the Oromo and the Sidama nations are fundamentally democratic and egalitarianism societies, and govern their respective nations by using their traditional democraticGadaa and Luwa systems, respectively. Both nations use the aforementioned noble socio-cultural and politico-economic heritages as the pillars of genuine democracy, just and fairness.

Benishangul: Ethiopia is a Threat to the Peace and Stability of The Horn of Africa

Posted 7/23/2014

By Ahmed Abdi,  via ayyaantuu.com, 22-07-14

Ethiopia has been a threat to the peace and stability of the Horn of Africa , the north of Africa as well as Nilotic peoples since the creation of this strange nation of Abyssinia (Fake Ethiopia) .

A-Benishangul-man-in-Jalabeyah

The nations of the Horn of Africa have been facing maltreatment from the successive fake regimes of Abyssinia that have been exercising a policy based on bloody-wars- the same war that the merciless TPLF-junta came to power in 1991.

Abyssinia (Ethiopia) availed the competitions between European colonial powers in the black Continent,Africa. Specially the rivals of France and Italy that had been competing against each other to gain Ethiopia as their main outsourcing or to find a place for marketing for their goods; therefore, Menelik II received enormous support from Italy’s rival, France.

THE INTERVIEW OF MR. DAWUD AND MR. LENCO WITH OMN, HOW FAIR WAS IT, DO WE LEARN SOMETHING?

Posted 7/21/2014

By Dandii Haqaa | July 18, 2014

1.  Background:

I do appreciate OMN for interviewing our true leaders, who have been the backbone for the success of our people secured so far and who are selfless in contributing their life regardless of the challenges we still facing. I also appreciate the effort of Mr. Kediro, though OMN is still a toddler and hence can make mistakes. But we have to ask critical questions if the mistakes throughout the interviews are intentional or lack of experience. I would take it as lack of exposure, but with so much curiosity. It is the responsibility for all of us, the stakeholders, to correct any mistake and go forward. So I would like to ask the following three questions, before making my observation and opinion:

  • How fair were the interviews handled both by the interviewer and interviewees?
  • Was there any lesson learned from the experience of the leaders to the level expected?
  • Was Mr. Kadiro a biased or balanced interviewer? 
  • 2.  My Observation:

     A. How fair was the interviews handled both by the interviewer and interviewees?

     

    I tried to compare the interviews of Mr. Lenco and Mr. Dawud and I even questioned myself, is that good to be arrogant sometime to be respected? But it shouldn’t be. As per my observation while it was Mr. Lenco who was not a bit fair toward Mr. Kediro, like saying “go and ask the dead Meles”, it was Mr. Kediro who was not fair toward Mr. Dawud in many occasions, while Mr. Dawud was very polite from the beginning to end.
