Oromo Community’s Appeal against Ethiopian’s government aristocracies

Date 14th July 2020

To Government of Ireland,

To European Commission,

To Amnesty International Ireland,

To Human Rights Watch,

Dear,    

Greetings,

We, the member of the Oromo community in Ireland would kindly write to you about the current political turmoil in Ethiopia.  We came to learn that there is a big political turn around in Ethiopia as a result of the assassination of a prominent artist Hachalu Hundessa, a vocal against the aristocracies of the Ethiopian government against Oromo people.  The available information around the killing of Hachalu and the subsequent events after that clearly indicate that the Ethiopian government is responsible for the killing of Hacalu Hundessa. The Assassination of the artist was a planned, and deliberate act of terroir by the government to harvest a calculated political gain from the agony of the Oromo people through arresting and humiliating the Oromo leaders and closing down its free mass media, the Oromo Media Network. The shutting down of the only free Oromo media, the OMN and the arrest of its journalists and administration is completely illegal and unjustified and politically motivated

The Ethiopia government is also responsible for the killing of more than 300 people in Oromia and Finfinnee (Addis Ababa) as a result of the anger and demonstration by people against these government actions.  The Ethiopia government has since blocked the Oromo community from the international community by shutting down the Internet and all communication lines and continued arresting in thousands, and killing many women children and the elderly.

The arrest of all Oromo political leaders Jawar Mohammed, Bekele Gerba, Abdi Regasa, Hamza Borena and many thousand other Oromos are illegal and it is a political move. It is the act of anti-democracy where the government is trying to clear out opposition political parties to establish an old and unacceptable feudal system of governance. The Ethiopian ruling party has been involved in the dead political end trying to bring back very sensitive historical issues that can ignite never-ending violence and instability in the country and in the region at large.

The Ethiopian government, specifically the PM is responsible for the killing of 86 people of which 50 are Oromos around a year ago as a result his irresponsible statement and unthoughtful order to remove Jawar Mohammad security guards, a prominent Oromo leader and former activist and reformist security, now arrested.

The government put most of the Oromo region under illegal and unconstitutional command post for over 2 years, killing and arresting thousands of Oromo, especially in South, West, and central Oromia zones. This military group which is ordered by Abiy Ahmed has been burning farmers’ houses, farms, and arresting, raping, and displacing thousands of Oromo farmers from their livelihood.

The Oromo people are suffering under Abiy administration in an imagination double standard. The Ethiopian government was responsible for creating false precedents like non-tax compliant to loot the wealth of a prominent Oromo investor called Dinku Dayasa. Dinku is now in exile as he feared for his life and all his wealth specially Sodare Resort is shut down by the government.

The Ethiopian ruling party failed multipipe time in protecting the Oromo people against aggressions from all corners and couldn’t bring the responsible to justice. The government failed to protect the people either deliberately or failed to act as a result of administrative weaknesses.

The business that was owned by Oromo individuals was completely destroyed and looted in the Amhara region by the Amhara terrorist group called ‘Fano’. The government does not bring any responsible group to justice yet. Further to this, many Oromo students were killed in all universities in the same Amhara region which Abiy Amhed administers. In the same Amhara region, many religious institutions (Specially mosques) were burned down and nobody was brought to justice or questioned about it.

Any Oromo political party that is in opposition to the policies of the ruling Property Party were continually harassed, their office ransacked and shut down and thousands of their members arrested. This is the ruling party’s deliberate act of harassing to push them out of election so that it could steal the election results same way as its predecessors.

Many Oromo around Addis Ababa were displaced by the so-called Addis Ababa Master Plan, a plan set by the government to facilitate land grabbing. The plan has been humiliating and devastating to our people. Oromo farmer’s farmland, the only property they ever had, has been taken away from them to be leased to Chinese, Indian, and investors from Arab countries. To make things worst the Oromo people can’t even peacefully demonstrate these all illegal and unbearable aristocracies against them.  The government has organised attacker groups against any Oromo who wants to complain about his or her grievances or these mistreatments. These attackers, whom the government call ‘Peace Team’ brutally attack and displaced any Oromo who tries to speak or demonstrate about these political harassments and/or even their family member’s deaths.

Therefore, we the member of Oromo community living in Ireland ask your honorable office to:

1.       Urge the Ethiopian government to refrain from, and stop killing our people just because they demanded their human and natural rights

2.       Ask the Ethiopian government to allow an impartial and independent investigation into the death of Hachalu Hundessa and bring those responsible to justice as soon as possible. The Ethiopian government is fabricating false documentaries to conceal its own crime and thus any investigation and outcome by the government is false and unacceptable.

3.       Urge the Ethiopian government to immediately release all Oromo political leaders without preconditions so that peace and stability can resort and they are allowed back to their duties and the government can focus its attention to the crucial public health issues such as coronavirus pandemic.

4.       Urge the Ethiopian government to immediately and unconditional allow OMN (the only free media) and release all of its employees as soon as possible.

5.       Ask the Ethiopian government to immediately restore the Internet and communications to allow the international media into the country so that the true picture of the aristocracies committed by the Ethiopian government be known to the international community.

6.       Ask the Ethiopian government to remove the unconstitutional and illegal command post that has been forcefully put in Oromia and undertaking inhumane and illegal actions on to our people.

7.       Ask the Ethiopian government to bring to justice those government securities and military members that burned down farmers houses, rape the same member of a family at the same place and committed human rights violations

8.       Urge the Ethiopian government to bring to justice those who are responsible for the killing of Oromo students, destroying Oromo business and burndown mosques and churches as soon as possible.

9.       Ask the government to refrain using armed attackers against the people, and bring those responsible for killing and displacing the Oromo from the homes and farmlands.

10.   Urge the Ethiopian government to stop false accusation and cheap propaganda against the opposition parties it perceives as a threat to its authority and allow the Oromo people to decide their leaders in a democratic election.

Dear honourable,

As you might have been following the Oromo people all over the world and back home are on the international streets demanding the above mentions basic rights from the Ethiopian government. About 40-45 million Oromo back home are in a peaceful demonstration against the government that never hears them. Our people are irresponsibly exposed to the danger of coronavirus as the government is putting to jail thousands and thousands of them into small rooms and confinements with no protections. These all political social and security problems are happening under the administration of the 2019th Noble Peace Award receiver Abiy Ahmed.  

Therefore, we request your immediate attention and action so that the Ethiopian government may listen to you. Anything you do today will save the lives of thousands of our people and restores their peace and stability. We thank and appreciate your office for its continued work on human rights in Ethiopia especially for its recent report that exposed the hidden government’s cruelty against our people. We kindly appreciate and thank you in advance, for all your thoughts and actions that is can save the lives of many thousand Ethiopians.

Yours Sincerely,

Dublin, Ireland.
