TPLF’s Unauthorized State of Emergency Foiled by Qeerroo!
By Abaa Ormaa, March 6, 2018
The unlawful state of emergency failed because everything the decree outlawed is happening and there is nothing the TPLF and its mercenaries can do about it. Intimidation, killing, torturing, and displacing is not new to the Oromo people and is not going to work. They have been there for the last 27 years under TPLF.
The Oromo people in every corner of Oromia are rising up and said NO to occupation!
Fabled by the gallant Qeerroo, the TPLF regime is now running for cover. It is now a liability to the regime itself!
TPLF’s fearmongering is also defeated. In a heartbreaking seen, we saw Qeerroo feeding less fortunate and elderly Ethiopians as the protest is raging on. They did not ask whether these people are Amhara? Hadiya? Gurage, etc? They did not say because you are speaking other languages, you will not eat. They proved to the world that their struggle is not against anyone. It is a struggle for peace and justice. It is a struggle to free and lift up everyone from under the TPLF apartheid. They are exemplary of the long tradition of Gadaa.
Even before the unlawful State of Emergency is voted down by the kangaroo parliament and yet ratified, the TPLF sent its mercenaries to towns and cities in Oromia with the hope of crashing the Qeerroo peaceful movement for freedom. On the contrary, 48 hours later, the TPLF and its Agaz are running for cover. Reports confirm that the regime’s mercenaries are confused and acting incoherently.
The Oromo people in every corner of Oromia are rising up and said NO to occupation! You are not welcome to our towns and cities. Frustrated by the boldness and determination of the Oromo people, the Agazi is randomly killing and robing people in cities and towns across Oromia. Killing and robing did not deter the movement and now the tide is reversed in favor of Qeerroo and the Agazians are deserting in droves in all directions.
The TPLF is left with one more card to play: the symbolic prime minister post. They probably put Dr. Abiy or Ato Demeke or both and reverse the failed State of Emergency through them to make them look independent to buy some time and engage in the usual crocodile tears.
Honestly, the State of Emergency was their last hope and that hope is squashed by Qeerroo and the game is over. The TPLF regime and everyone involved in this crime enterprise has blood in his/her hand and will face justice. The saddest part of the drama was to see women wearing Hijab and signing on death sentence of another women and children. It is sickening. They should be ashamed of themselves!
Every parliament member who endorsed TPLF’s plan to commit genocide against the Oromo people should pack and move to Tigray before it is late, if they are welcome there. They have no place with their people. Their act is not difference from the Nazi Germany party who cheered and jumped up and down to wipe out the Jewish. These people clapped their heart out and even some raised both hands to increase the count to wipe out the Oromo people. They have to ask themselves why they hate the Oromo people this much! Those who did not show up are no less criminal than those who voted. They wanted to keep their blood money and apartment and choose not to say no to TPLF. They should not blame the Oromo people for wanting to have a country of their own. Anyone who suggests amnesty to these criminals is a criminal in the eyes of the Oromo people.
Where are Dr. Abiy and Lemma Megersa when Oromia is burning by mercenaries from Tigray? What is more important the life of 20, 21, 25 year Oromo or loyalty to your masters? Why don’t you speak up that the decree is not ratified and it is illegal and should not take effect? This days shall pass too!
Oromia shall be free!
