Resolution of the Conference of Oromia Global Forum: a global alliance of Oromo Civic, Professional and Faith-Based Organizations 

July 19, 2020

Oromia Global Forum

Whereas, the Oromo nation, Oromummaa and Oromia are being subjected to a never before experienced oppression and repression by the Afaan Oromo speaking head of the Government of Ethiopia (GoE);

Whereas, the GoE is engaged in a deliberate planning and execution of destroying Oromo nationalism, dismantling Oromia and reversing the victories our people achieved by heroic sacrifices of our sons and daughters;

Whereas, the GoE works in concert with Nafxanyas with the intention of returning them to their former repressive power;

Whereas, the GoE has used the COVID-19 pandemic as a pretext to cancel national and regional elections to stay in power illegally, indefinitely;

Whereas, the recent assassination of Artist Haacaaluu Hundessaa, a much loved and respected Oromo nationalist, the illegal detention of Oromo political leaders and members of Oromo political organizations, and the killing of civilian demonstrators is a continuation of GoE policy to demoralize and defeat the Oromo nation;

Whereas, the GoE promotes division and conflicts among the Oromo along regional and religious lines as a strategy for success;

Whereas, the GoE intentionally causes and fuels conflicts among nations, nationalities, peoples, and different religious entities;

Whereas, the GoE, having imposed an illegal and undeclared military rule on parts of Oromia, the GoE is subjecting the people to untold misery through large-scale military campaigns;

Whereas, the GoE has widened and deepened the killings, arbitrarily arresting, detaining and beating the Oromo people;

Whereas, the GoE burns down houses with families inside; ignites granaries full of grain and sets fire to farms and forests without concern for crops or wildlife;

Whereas, the GoE deploys its armed forces to continue to hunt down and murder Oromo youth on a daily basis

Whereas the GoE recruits, indoctrinates and employs young unemployed youth into its army to kill the Oromo people after indoctrinating them

Whereas, the GoE continues to refuse to bring to justice those who committed ethnically motivated murders of Oromo students on the campuses of Amhara regional state,

Whereas, the GoE is not willing to provide any protection to those spared from the killings, but finds the flimsiest of excuses to suspend or dismiss other Oromo students from universities;

Whereas, contrary to its promises a few months ago to widen the political space in the country, the GoE has narrowed it significantly; it illegally arrests and/or causes to disappear, leaders and members of opposition parties; obstructs and hinders their contact with their constituents;   

Whereas, it intimidates Oromo media outlets, imprisons their leaders and journalists for reporting the truth,

Whereas the GoE uses government owned, public media outlets to wage its propaganda war against our people;

Whereas, the economic deprivation of Oromo people and robbery of resources of Oromia by the GoE and its cronies has intensified;

Whereas the GoE continued eviction of the Oromo people, so that GoE could sell Oromo land to capital owners

Whereas the GoE continues to be the major facilitator and contributor to environment destruction and devastation of natural resources of Oromia

Whereas, the GoE is leaving no stone unturned to demoralize, marginalize the Oromo people in all walks of life and to force the Oromo nation to drop to its knees; and

Deeply Concerned about the fate of the Oromo people and the unlikelihood of continued survival of the Oromo as a nation and Oromia as land of the Oromo, if the current situation is allowed to persist;

Recognizing the need for the Oromo unity inside and outside the country in combating the ongoing difficult situation forced upon our people;

We, Oromo Civic, Professional and Faith-Based Organizations, prominent individuals, human rights defenders, community members, whose names are listed below and who share the aforementioned concerns about the situation of our people and our nation, having deliberated on wide-ranging issues pertaining to our people’s dire situation have successfully concluded our conference on July 18-19, 2020, and; We,

  1. Hereby Pledge to work together to achieve our shared vision of advocating for the voiceless victims of injustices in Oromia and beyond;
  2. Condemn the politically motivated assassination of Art. Haacaaluu Hundeessaa in the strongest possible terms and demand an independent investigation;
  3. Strongly condemn the Ethiopian government military forces for killing, arbitrarily arresting and detaining, beating, raping Oromo women and underage girls, and demand to immediately stop its inhuman and barbaric acts against our people;
  4. Demand the immediate lifting of the illegal and undeclared military rule imposed on Western and Southern parts of Oromia;
  5. Demand the immediate and unconditional release of all Oromo political prisoners: leaders, members and supporters of all Oromo political parties;
  6. Strongly condemn the GoE’s interference into Gadaa institution;
  7. Ask Oromo elders, Abbaa Gadaas and religious leaders not to misuse and abuse the valuable Oromo Jaarsummaa;
  8. Call on the Oromo diaspora to join us in condemning and actively opposing the ongoing repression against our people;
  9. Call on Oromo organizations whose names are not in the list below to join us to defend our people’s rights;
  10. Call on all Oromo organizations operating in the country to set their political differences aside and unite to condemn the GoE’s heinous acts and coordinate our people’s resistance;
  11. Call on all Zones of Oromia to come to the aid of their compatriots in other zones to once and for all uproot the GoE which is the root cause of repression against all, for there is strength in numbers;
  12. Call on all nations and nationalities in the country to condemn and actively oppose the killings and arbitrary arrests that the GoE is perpetrating against the Oromo people as all conflicts in Oromia region can easily spread to their regions;
  13. Call on all organizations advocating for respect of human rights to expose to the international community the untold human rights violations the Oromo people are being subjected to by the GoE;
  14. Remind the international community of its moral obligation and responsibility to speak up against, and to work to prevent the population exodus that is sure to ensue from the continued hunting down and killings of Oromo youth and the resulting forced migration and refugee problems;
  15. Urge the international community to bring pressure to bear on the GoE to immediately stop the war it declared on the Oromo people before the situation escalate into massive displacement, famine, civil war and genocide.
