“A Criminal State: The Blackmailing of the Oromo Liberation Struggle for Freedom and Democracy”, the futile attempt of successive regimes of Ethiopia

Posted 9/26/2014

Dr. Shugut Geleta's presentation on the fourth New-World Summit, 19-21 Sep. 2014

shigut4

                     New-World Summit in Brussels 

Your Excellency Mr. Chairman,

Dear Honorable guest speakers,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is a great privilege and honor for me to be among you today representing the Oromo Liberation Front. First of all, I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to the organizing committee for inviting OLF and having organized the 4th New World Summit that brought together the representatives of stateless states to discuss and share experiences about the potentials or obstacles that states are embroiling some genuine political causes today.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The topic on which I am going to address is “A Criminal State: The Blackmailing of the Oromo Liberation struggle for Freedom and Democracy”: the futile attempt of successive regimes of Ethiopia. Accordingly, my presentation is organized in five main parts. In the first part, I introduce Oromo (the people) and Oromia (the land) that are caught in an increasingly violent identity political struggle. In the second part, I will try to indicate the deep rooted conflict that led the Oromo people for being at odd to the Ethiopian Empire. In the third part, I point to the birth and grand objectives of Oromo Liberation Front. In the fourth, I will enumerate with some specific examples how all the Ethiopian regimes that seized power one after the other attempted to blackmail Oromo liberation struggle. Finally, I offer our view on the current political situation and the future scenarios on Oromo vs Ethiopia.

1) Who are the Oromo and Oromia?

Oromia Participates in the 4th New World Summit- Stateless State

Posted 9/18/2014

source: Royal Flemish Theatre, Brussels

The New World Summit will be held  from 19-21 September, 2014 in the EU's capital, Brussels; said the press released from the organization. "The Oromo Nation will participate at the 3-day 4th New World Summit, with the theme “Stateless State.” The Oromo Nation will be represented by Dr. Shigut Geleta of the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) at the Summit, which will be held in the Royal Flemish Theatre of Brussels – between 19 and 21 September 2014. TheNew World Summit will focus on the current concept of the ‘State’ exploring the question to what extent the ‘State’ is still capable of representing and protecting the people’s right to self-determination in the 21st century." said Gadaa.com

The New World Summit is an artistic and political organization founded by visual artist Jonas Staal, which explores the space of art to develop parliaments for stateless politics. Taking place in a parliament built inside the Royal Flemish Theatre, this fourth Summit will host twenty representatives of ‘stateless states’ worldwide.

The 4th New World Summit, titled Stateless State, invites twenty stateless political organizations to a parliament constructed inside the Royal Flemish Theatre in Brussels. These organizations have either been denied representation by a state, or they may wish to take over an existing state, or alternatively, create a new state altogether. Confirmed speakers at the Summit include political representatives of unacknowledged, yet nonetheless operational states, such as Kurdistan, Oromia, Basque Country and Azawad. The New World Summit explores the space of art to create new political structures that enforce equal representation of acknowledged and unacknowledged states alike.

What is at stake in Stateless State, the 4th New World Summit, is the question to what extent the concept of the state is still capable of representing and protecting a peoples’ right to self-determination in the 21st century. During the three day program, representatives of stateless organizations and states will discuss the meaning, potential or obstacles that the state embodies today through five consecutive segments, titled Oppressive StateProgressive StateGlobal StateNew State and Stateless State.

The city of Brussels is today’s embodiment of the crisis of the state. It is the site of an ongoing conflict over the existence of Belgium as a federal state as well the declining supranational project of the European Union. The rise of ultranationalism, which considers the EU to be a threat, calls for a return to the nation state as the only way to regain sovereignty, control migration and secure economic prosperity. At the same time, this myth of the sovereign state itself has been dismantled through whistleblowers’ recent revelations of global systems of mass surveillance.

It is in the light of the crisis of the state that we have witnessed international uprisings and social movements these past years. It comes as no surprise that many of the mechanisms enacted against stateless states – such as denial of history, systemic persecution and terrorist blacklisting – are now being used to criminalize new social movements as well. The attack of the state against its own citizens, through mass surveillance and politics of blacklisting, indicates that today’s condition of statelessness is on the verge of becoming a collective one.

Today’s social movements are embracing stateless internationalism to engage in political models that redefine solidarities between peoples beyond mere territorial disputes. Here, statelessness is not simply a product of victimization, but the prerequisite of a necessarily new model of political organization, mobilization and action. It is through the space of art that the New World Summit sets out to define the future of thisstateless state.

Will Scottish Referendum Encourage Africa's Separatists?

Posted 9/18/2014

Many African countries have secessionist movements, partly because their borders were drawn up by colonial powers in the 19th Century. Will the Scottish referendum lead to a greater push for independence on the continent?

Essence of the Scottish Referendum in the Eyes of an Oromo Nationalis

Posted 9/10/2014

By Boruu Barraaqaa (September. 09/ 2014)

It is obvious that both supporters and opponents of Oromian independence in Ethiopia are watching carefully what is going on in the UK. Both political entities have their own reasons for their respective wishes. Some Abyssinian elites could ridiculously try to resemble their cause to that of English elites, who were in the forefront of building the great nation, UK. However, there is no factual resemblance between the savage invaders from Abyssinia and the most civilized, prosperous and the leading democratic nation in the world. In spite of the fact that the British were once the brutal colonialist rulers in the world history, I don’t judge them by their history of yesterday in this context, but by who they are and what they are contributing for the betterment of our world today.

Arresting and Torturing of Oromo Women and Youth does not Stop the Struggle of the Oromo People for Justice and Freedom

Posted 8/30/2014

Statement of the National Youth Movement for Freedom and Democracy (aka Qeerroo Bilisummaa)

29-08-2014

Qeerroo EditQeerroo Edit

 

The Tigrayan minority TPLF-led Ethiopian regime has continued arresting and torturing of the Oromo nationals in an attempt to stop the struggle of the Oromo nation for freedom, democracy and justice. Currently, the atrocities committed by this regime on innocent Oromo civilians have been escalated to unimaginable scale. Hundreds of Oromo students, teachers, farmers, daily labourers, and civil servants are languishing in prisons located at several places in Oromia. The overwhelming majority of those who are sent to detention centres are subjected to severe and inhuman torture. Some have died in prison cells or thrown out of jail and left to die in hospital simply because they couldn’t stand the torture. Oromo nationalists Wako Tola (teacher), Usmayyo Musa (singer), Alamayehu Gerba (handicapped university student), Nimona Tilahun (former University student), Tesfahun Chemeda (engineer), Aslan Hassan (university student), and many others are all killed by the regimes police as a direct result of torture while in prison cells. Those who survive the brutal torture will be subjected to trumped-up charges and will be brought to judges of the kangaroo court of the regime. Before bringing to the court false witnesses are prepared and “evidence” is planted at their homes by the regimes police and convicted based on these fake testimony and made-up and planted “evidence”. Others are kept in prison indefinitely without any charge at all. In few cases judges render a “not-guilty” verdict after the prisoners have already spent several years in jail and let them go “free”. In some of such cases the police arrests them back before they even leave the court house and prepare other made-up charges. This has been a well-known and established norm of the judiciary system of the current regime in Ethiopia. Oromo students are subjected to such police brutality and unjust judicial process and branded as “terrorists” for no crime other than raising the rightful and legitimate questions of the Oromo people in a peaceful and non-violent manner. It is not an exaggeration if we say this regime in Finfinne (Addis Ababa) is a mafia regime, brutal than the former apartheid regime of South Africa.

Waliin Waliif – Together for Each Other in Oromia!

Posted 8/28/2014

Waliin Waliif – Together for Each Other in Oromia! 

 

Background 
Since 1991 the TPLF have predominantly controlled government power in the country resulting in over 40,000 Oromo’s being unjustly detained and their lives destroyed. Retired Oromo elders, mothers, teenagers and children with their families are among the thousands of innocent Oromo civilians unlawfully imprisoned for long periods, with many losing their lives in prison as the result of a lack of adequate treatment and torture. Other Oromo civilians, counted in thousands, including farmers, business people, teachers, students and professionals have had their properties confiscated, lost their jobs and risked uncertain life in their homeland. 

On top of all these atrocious situations, the systematic complication of due legal process- such as high lawyer costs, prevent the Oromo detainees from accessing lawyers and bringing their case to hearing in the court system. Thousands of Oromo released from years of prison have fled to different countries and suffer in various refugee camps. By taking all these factors into account, and to support these victims as much as possible this “Waliin-Waliif” – literally ‘ Together for Each Other’ project has been established.

Goals: 
Assist Oromo detainees forgotten in prison for many years and still unable to access lawyers due to financial difficulties. Provide close and devoted support to Oromo children, those whose parents are in detention, through sending them to school as well as encouraging them in dealing with their daily hardship. Follow up and provide the necessary and possible support to Oromo detainee families suffering in the country. 

- Support Oromo detainees released from prison that have fled the country and are sheltered in various refugee camps in neighbouring countries. 

- Support those who have been physically injured or suffer illness from detention due to poor treatment. 

- Support Oromo girls and women in need of special and additional support in detention. 
Objectives:

Continuously report the ongoing suffering of the Oromo community in Ethiopia, to members of the Oromo diaspora around the world. Designating and engaging individuals living in various countries for the succession of ‘ Waliin Waliif’ Together for Each Other objectives. To empower Oromo who have been released from detention (particularly Oromo ladies), to be the achievers and leaders

While fresh arrests and detentions, kidnappings and disappearances of Oromo nationals have continued in different parts of the regional state of Oromo following the April-May crackdown of peaceful demonstrators, court rulings over the cases of some of the earlier detainees by courts of the regional state are being rejected by political agents of the governing TPLF/EPRDF Party. The renewed violence by government forces against Oromo nationals started particularly following what was termed as “Lenjii Siyaasaa” (literally meaning “political training) that has targeted Oromo Students of higher educational institutions and has been going on in the past two weeks in different parts of Oromia.

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.
