An Open Appeal Letter to Qeerroo and Qarree and the Oromo People

An Open Appeal Letter to Qeerroo and Qarree and the Oromo People

Forced by a piercing need to avert a looming threat, motivated by the hope that our appeal may abate the sufferings of our people, and mindful that our plea may sway the Ethiopian government that is, otherwise, unimpressed by our recent appeal to Prime Minister Abiy to stop brutal treatment of our people;

We, the undersigned Oromo scholars and professionals, issue this call to appeal to the Oromo people and peoples of Ethiopia, to alert them about the approaching tragedy, and urge them to unite to prevent the danger.  The telltale signs of what is to come have emerged all over Oromia and Ethiopia for years now, the last year offering a glaring sample of a painful beginning, despite some glimmers of hope in early part of the year.

Within the last few months, twelve Oromo students have been killed, and hundreds have been wounded as a result of severe beatings they faced at Woldiya University, Dese University, Debre Tabor University, Gonder University, Baherdar University, and Debreberhan University, all located in the Amhara regional state. Those who protested about the killings and beatings were dismissed from the universities. Reliable reports indicate that Oromo students who felt unsafe to stay and requested to return to their homes were forbidden to leave the campuses, or the hospitals, by School officials and by the Amhara Regional Government. The pleas of families who requested the return of their children home have fallen on deaf ears.  Oromo students’ rights to travel were denied, and they were held against their will under very risky conditions.  Students in universities across Oromia are under threat just as much, if not worse, as those located in other regions.  At the last count, 77 students of Haramaayaa University, 11 from Amboo, 115 from Mattuu (including 89 students who were dismissed last year), 21 from Jimma, 12 from Bulee Horaa, 17 from Madda Walaabuu, 40 from Dirre Dhawaa universities have been dismissed since PM Abiy took power.  This list does not include students whose whereabouts are unknown but that we suspect may have been victims of foul play by the government security forces. In a nutshell, the Oromo youth are facing coordinated attacks in universities across the country, even in their towns and villages.  It is disturbing to learn that the perpetrators of these heinous crimes have not been brought to justice.  Paradoxically, thousands of Oromo students who are protesting the killing of their colleagues have been expelled from their schools.  In today’s Ethiopia, to be a young Oromo has become a crime.

The situation off-campuses is not any different either.  An estimated 10,000 Oromo political prisoners are reportedly languishing in Ethiopia’s jails.  In a widely televised recent case, an opposition leader explained movingly how he was treated in prison where he was kept incommunicado in a dark room for one month.  He was later transferred to other jails where he was kept for months without charges, and incarcerated under a bogus charge, for a total of almost a year.  Sporadic reports coming out of the jailhouses indicate that some Oromo prisoners continue to face torture by prison guards and government security officers.

Oromo students, Oromo political prisoners, and the Oromo people in general, are being systematically denied the benefits of organized advocacy for their basic human rights.  Opposition parties are getting legal recognition, but they are not allowed free mobility.  The government routinely closes their offices and constantly harasses or jails representatives and agents managing the offices. The ransacking of the OFC office in Dire Dawa, and the closure of branch offices of the OLF in various towns of Oromia are recent examples.  Our people are being intimidated, imprisoned, and killed for peacefully supporting a political group of their choice that is guranteed by the constitution.

With the establishment of the Ethiopian Prosperity Party, the government has launched egregious propaganda against Oromo nationalism. While presenting Ethiopian nationalism that camouflages Amhara domination as forward-looking, the Prime Minister has adhered to defining Oromumma as backward thinking.  The propaganda assault is supported by unparalleled military attack on parts of Oromia.  For more than a year now, nearly a third of Oromia has remained under a state of emergency administered by a military command post, imposed by the Prime Minister without the authority of the Parliament. A significant part of Western Oromia has been cut-off telephone, the mass media, and internet services intermittently to hide abuses of the military.

In parts of Oromia that linger under the state of emergency, the country’s military and security forces, commanded by the Prime Minister, are operating as though they have license to harass and indiscriminately kill innocent Oromo people, young and old. Women and children face rape by the Ethiopian military.  For the first time since the Bale rebellion, the Oromo people are being bombarded by fighter jets and helicopter gunships.  Even Oromia’s wildlife and their habitats are not spared from the indiscriminate assaults.  Gruesome pictures of ordinary citizens mutilated by ammunitions fired by members of the army have become common depictions on social media. These atrocities are taking place during a harvest season, not allowing farmers to work their fields.  Farmlands and coffee plantations have been destroyed by the military, suggesting that the campaign is designed to deny farmers their mainstay and starve them to submission.  Using famine as a weapon of war is immoral and a crime against humanity.

In our recent letter to PM Abiy, we asked him to: lift the illegal state of emergency and return the military to their barracks, establish an independent inquiry commission to investigate the abuse of power by the military, reinstate communication to the parts of  Oromia that are adversely impacted by telephone and internet blackouts, start genuine dialogue with Oromo political groups, end the killings of Oromo students, take appropriate legal actions against those responsible for the killings, release Oromo students and members of Oromo opposition groups who are unlawfully detained by the government, reinstate students of higher education institutions who have been unduly expelled from the schools, and reopen universities that have been closed for political reasons. The PM chose to ignore our plea for a peaceful resolution of conflicts in Oromia and decided to expand the illegal crackdown of opposition party members to every corner of Oromia.

We can cite several evidences which would lead a reasonable observer that the Prime Minister’s record on protecting Oromo interests and Oromummaa has been dismal. In one of his more recent speeches – perhaps, trying to impress and send a signal to his audience – he admitted that nothing has changed for the Oromo since he came to power.  In fact, a solid case can be made that conditions have changed for the worse for the Oromo under Dr. Abiy’s administration. The Prime Minister has created a forum in which the Oromo people, specially our Qeerroo, have been ridiculed on national television while he is cheering on. In a move that should worry any Oromo with some sense of justice, he has systematically eliminated  Oromos who are widely considered to have nationalist tendencies from within his own party and replaced them with people who are clearly working against Oromo interests, or those who are at best indifferent to the Oromo cause. Under these circumstances, we have no other option than urging our people and Qeerroo to come to the realization outlined below and take the necessary remedial actions that follow.

  1. The struggle for freedom and equality that you sustained for over a century, and the revolution that you led over the last few years to topple the dictatorial TPLF government, is now off track and hijacked by a group who works against your national interest;
  2. Be mindful that the regime’s desire to suffocate our people and reinstitute the centuries-old yoke of subjugation and marginalization in the name of prosperity is now glaring and evident.  The agenda to return to the days of ‘a mono–culture Ethiopia’ is tacitly but fully driven by the Prime Minister who is unabashedly fond of  Ethiopia’s brutal emperors and displaying wax effigies of Menelik and Haile Selassie at the so-called National Palace, emperors regarded as the epitome of cruelty against Oromo and other peoples of Ethiopia by any objective standard;
  3. Understand that change and democratization will not be offered to you by PM Abiy as you might have once hoped for; hence, you should not remain silent when Oromos and Oromia suffer gross human rights violations of historic proportions with more abuse in the horizon. Our collective failure to address these emerging crises now will have long lasting catastrophic consequences for Oromia and the region.  Oromo mothers should not cry anymore to get the lives of their children spared from bullets fired by government security forces;
  4. Rise up to peacefully challenge the Ethiopian government to talk to opposition forces (armed or otherwise), and demand that it end its military operations in Western and Southern Oromia immediately.  The attack on our people is unacceptable and must stop;
  5. Oromos and Oromia have been disarmed by successive Ethiopian regimes, leaving disproportionately small number of guns in Oromia – relative to other regions. Consequently, Oromos remain exposed and vulnerable.  We worry that the next round of conflict could be bitterly inhuman, and a defense strategy is required;
  • Use every legal avenue to encourage the military, particularly the officer corps, to engage in conscientious objection. Given how things are quickly deteriorating in Ethiopia, such appeals might find a receptive audience within the ranks of the military. Reports coming from within the Ethiopian Defense Forces indicate that some officers have openly challenged the Prime Minister that their missions are impossible to achieve, advising him to rethink his strategies. We know, for instance, that an Oromo general has been relieved of his duties recently for opposing the military operation in Wollega and Guji;
  • The protests of the last few years were run by Qeerroo/Qarree, without much support of the Oromo civic population.  The lack of support for Qeerroo/Qarree was the weakest link, which enabled the EPRDF at the time to reinstate its supremacy and launch reversal of the protest movement.  This must change now, and the civic population must stand with Qeerroo/Qarree. Doctors, teachers, bankers, engineers, artists, businessmen, etc. must contribute their share by voicing their objections, supporting Oromo political parties, and standing with Qeerroo/Qarree;
  • Oromo students in all universities must stand for, and support, each other. Even though they are operating under very difficult circumstances, we encourage them to get organized, have contact with the outside world, and network with other university students.  We emphasize, however, that they need to avoid unnecessary risks that may cost their lives;
  • We implore upon all Oromos and non-Oromos who joined the government at all national and regional levels for various reasons including the urge to overcome the difficulties of life and may be tempted to do wrong, to rethink their actions, stand with their people, and be on the right side of history;
  • Finally, we call upon Oromo political parties to come together and design an enduring strategy in case conflicts continue to rise and the country becomes ungovernable. This is the least that is expected from responsible Oromo political groups that care for the wellbeing of the Oromo people. We call upon the OLF, OFC, and ONP to take this urgent call seriously. We are ready and committed to lend our expertise, effort and time in this endeavor.

  1. Hayyoota teenya woo, Oromoon har’as burjaajii hin dhiifne. Dubbiin akka Israa’eel fii Arabaa ti. Karaa nagaan milkiin galla jedhanii yaaduun gowwummaa ykn gowwoomsaa dha. Kana waan taheef jaarmaalee tapha wayyaanee miidhagsuuf barandaa Miniilik kajeellaa oolan yeroo ji’a 1 hin geenye keessatti gara dhufanitti akka deebi’an akka dhiibbaa itti gootan isin gaafadha. Tapha roorroo miidhagsuun farra qabsoo Oromoo ti. Jaalatamus jibbamus seenaa saba keennaa, maalummaa sirna Gadaa, Waaqa-Aanfannaa fii hiikkaa dhugaa muka Odaa hawaasa keenyatti himuun daandii dhugaa ganamaa akka qabsiiftan isin gaaffadha.
    Qeerroon Oromoo umriin isaa waggaa 24 hamma 32 jiru hundi akka aadaa abboota isaa dirqama qeerrummaa isaa bahuu qaba. Dirqama isaatis akka kashlabbee magaalaa keessatti dhagaa darbachuun qabsoo biyyoota alaa akkeessuu fii fakkeessuu osoo hin taane murannoon qeerransomuun qondaala filatanii gootummaan diina isaa qofa irratti qabsoon gurmaa’e akka godhamu akka naaf gorsitan isin gaafadha.

    Horaa,bulaa,hoffolaa !!
