Why is that every time bullet and sticks are answers to Oromo's question?

Now for more than 100years, whenever we raise question about our right, habesha government also answers by killing, arresting, torturing, body mutilation and etc. I for one, have seen this first hand as my father, my brothers and I were sent to jail and tortured multiple time during Derge and Wayane government. I can assure you that, all these were not because we are poletically active or we raise arms against the government but because we are Oromo and we are Oromos sympathizers. We didn't particularly hated one ethnic group verse the other one. My father was a business man and we have to deal with all sort of Ethiopian people as the nature of our works requires it. We didn't go out to harm anyone because they are not Oromos or because we didn't worship the same God us ours. For all we did trying to live peacefully with our neighbors we basically shot at over the fence or come to our front door kill us. Now we got to the boiling point and I wouldn't be one of them when we come after them with our machetes. We don't need a gun as the number is in our favor. We will take their gun and point back at them. Enough is Enough!!


Fighting Erupted in Nekemte

Source indicated that there were fight between Oromo and habesha students. Group of habesha students armed with explosive tried to attack Oromo students and met with heavy backlash. The source indicated that security forces arrested the perpetrators and some Oromo students. Will give you more update as soon as we get more details about this fluid situation.

Abay Tsehaye you or your kids will pay for innocent blood you allowed to spill on the streets of Oromia!!!


Freedom from Fear

Within a system which denies the existence of basic human rights, fear tends to be the order of the day. Fear of imprisonment, fear of torture, fear of death, fear of losing friends, family, property or means of livelihood, fear of poverty, fear of isolation, fear of failure. A most insidious form of fear is that which masquerades as common sense or even wisdom, condemning as foolish, reckless, insignificant or futile the small, daily acts of courage which help to preserve man's self-respect and inherent human dignity. It is not easy for a people conditioned by fear under the iron rule of the principle that might is right to free themselves from the enervating miasma of fear. Yet even under the most crushing state machinery courage rises up again and again, for fear is not the natural state of civilized man.

Don't let your fear keep you down, if you do, your enemies uses as a tool against you. That's how the kept Oromos under the yoke of oppression for over a century.

Speak out and stand-up for your right Oromo!!!


Enough is Enough!

Expansion of Finfine in to Oromia is now none stopping deal and none of the OPDO officials have a spin to stand together to oppose it. I am not sure why Oromos are not speaking louder against this issue and voice their support for protesters youth? Why are we resigning to wave white flag on every issues? This a time for every Oromo in Oromia to take out their guns, knives, machete and fend of this ever expanding tyrant neftegna government!! Enough is enough! Silence and ignoring our problem is not a solution anymore!
Speak out Oromo!!!


Congratulation Oromia Media Network!!!

Ethiopian prisoner of conscience Mr Bekele Gerba life in danger due to lack of medical care

By Gizee1
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Mr Bekele Gerba Ethiopian prisoner of conscience and lecturer in Addis Ababa University life is in danger due to lack of medical care. He has served the 3 year and 6 months imprisonment almost one month ago. However, he is still suffering in notorious Ethiopian prison with serious ailment because Ethiopian government doesn’t want to release him even after he has served his time behind the bar. Mr Bekele is a father of four young children who needs him most this time.
In the interview with local radio Afuura Biyyaa, his daughter Ms. Bontu Bekele clarified the problems she observed while visiting her father recently. She told the journalists ‘’more than 200 prisoners of conscience in the same prison are suffering from similar ailment.’’ The probability of having contagious disease in that cell shades dark light on the life all prisoners as all of them are suffering from similar symptoms like; night sweats, body fatigue, weight loss and heavy fever. The families of Mr. Bekele are left helpless as their mother has also lost her job due to political views of her husband which resulted in his imprisonment and immediate suspension of his wage from the day he was arrested. Ms. Bontu pledged all humanitarian and international community to put pressure on Ethiopian government to save her father’s life.

The following paragraph is quoted from Mr. Bekele’s speech in court after hearing his fine.

"I have dedicated my life to fight injustice, inequality, racism and oppression with passion. Not by my choice but by the will of God I was born as an Oromo. To fight for the human rights dignity and equality of my people by peaceful means and pay any price for this struggle is an honor for me. If I have to ever apologize in this life I dedicated for the struggle it is only for two things. One, if I chose not to speak spoken against the sufferings and anguish of Oromo people enough and if my motive in hiding this suffering was for a lesser purpose than the brotherhood of all people, I will ask the Oromo people to forgive me. Second, if I have ever exaggerated the injustice against the Oromo people and I did this to gain personal fame and fortune, I will ask God to forgive me." ~ Bekele Gerba
