Irreechaa: Color & Treasure of Oromo

Thank you so much Amensisa Ifa for the wonderful job you have done to promote Irreechaa. This documentry is the first of its kind that I have seen that attempts to bring Irreecha, The Thanks Giving Day, celeberated every year by millions of Oromos at Hora Arsedi in Bishoftu to the attention of the world.

Very little attention has been given to this colourful celeberation that we find nowhere in the world but Oromia. The media in the country that claim to be the voice of diversity (EBC, for example) have purposely ignored Irreecha though it deserves a live coverage, promotion and apprecaition. TV Oromiya, which is owned and operated by Oromia Regional state has done less than what is expected from it in promoting Irreechaa. This year what OBS TV did was very encouraging as its journalists followed the whole event and helped us see it at our homes.

Here comes, your documentry which I really liked watching because it is produced in such a way that it gives the picture of Irreecha to those who don’t know about it. We need to do a lot of promotion work as Irreecha has been nominated by UNESCO to be inscribed as the world intangible cultural heritage along with the Gada system. As an Oromo, I am very much proud of you, my brother, as you have set an example to all of us and we have learnt a lot from you.I hope that you will keep on doing what you are doing now. We will be on your side as this is not only your responsiblity; it is also our responsiblity to promote our culture, develop our language and rewrite our history.

U.S. Gave 28-Day Ultimatum to the Ethiopian Regime to Allow UN Rapporteurs


The United States on Wednesday gave a 28-day ultimatum to the Ethiopian regime to announce its consent to allow rapporteurs for the United Nations High Commissioner to investigate human rights violations in the country.

House majority leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R) said he communicated to the Ethiopian regime that they need to announce by February 28, 2018, that they will allow rapporteurs appointed by the United Nations to independently investigate the state of human rights in Ethiopia.

According to the majority leader, if the regime fails to do so, House Resolution 128, a resolution supporting human rights in Ethiopia, will be put to the floor of the House for a vote in March.

“Should the government not announce by Feb. 28 that it will allow the UNHCHR to independently examine the state of human rights in Ethiopia, then we will bring the resolution to the floor during the month of March.

Furthermore, should the government announce it will allow access by the deadline but then not actually follow through and give the UN access, we will bring the resolution to the floor,” McCarthy said in a letter to Ethiopian civic and political groups whom he met on Monday.

“There is no question this resolution has had and continues to have an impact. We are committed to the shared goalthat the human rights of every Ethiopian should be respected, honored, and protested,” McCarthy added.

The Ethiopian regime had repeatedly refused demands by the High Commissioner and other rights watchdogs for an independent investigation into the killings of hundreds of anti-government protesters since November 2015 when protests began in the Oromo region of Ethiopia.

By the regime’s own admission, over 900 people were killed in 2015 through 2017. There have been more deaths of protesters in 2018 and hundreds of others lost their lives in Eastern Ethiopia in a shoot to kill operation by the Special police force of the Somali region. The regime blames ethnic clashes between the Oromo and Somali communities for the deaths.

On Monday, a meeting was held between representatives of Ethiopian civic and political groups with majority leader McCarthyRep. Chris Smith and Rep. Mike Coffman that deliberated on ways of moving forward House Resolution 128, a resolution supporting respect for human rights and encouraging inclusive governance in Ethiopia.

Introduced in the House in February 2017, the resolution was scheduled to be on the House floor for a vote on October 2, 2017, but has been indefinitely postponed.

Res. 128, among others, calls for sanctions against Ethiopian officials responsible for committing gross human rights violations. It also called for the regime to allow a United Nations rapporteur to conduct an independent examination of the state of human rights in Ethiopia.

Crackdowns on Qeerroo? Good Luck Intimidating the Tiger! 

Qeerroo is not an institution. It isn’t a group. Qeerroo is an idea today. An idea of cultured resistance. Qeerroo rightly represents a relentless pursuit of liberty, equipped with mental readiness and resilience which leaves no stone unturned to get what it pursues.

Qeerroo is an Afaan Oromoo term ascribed to youth (traditkonally male?). Its etymology stems from the word “Qeerrensa/Qeerransa” whose literal meaning is “tiger”. My literal meaning of Qeerroo is ” Tiger-ish” Tiger is a symbol of fierce fighter, a…

ለዚህ መልካም ማሳያ የሚሆን ጥቂት ሀላፍነት በጎደላቸው የመከላከያ ሰራዊት አባላት በምስራቅ ሀረርጌ ዞን በሜታ ወረዳ በጨለንቆ ከተማ በኦሮሞ ህዝብ ላይ የተፈፀመ ዘግናኝ የጅምላ ፍጂት ነው። ከዚህ ጅምላ ፍጂት በስተጀርባ ማነው ያለው የሚለው ጥያቄ ለህዝቡ መመለስ ግዴታ ነው። ከዚህ አፀያፊ ድርጊት በስተጀርባ ያለ ሃይል ሊጋለጥ ይገባል።

በመሆኑም የህዝቡን ደህንነትና ሰላም ከማስተጠበቅ ፋንታ የህዝቡን ሰላም እያደፈረሱና ጉዳት እያደረሱ ያሉ የሰራዊቱ አባላት ለህግ ሊቀርቡ ይገባል። የህግ የበላይነት እንዲከበር የሚመለከተው አካላት ሁሉ ካልተንቀሳቀሰ ነገም ተመሳሳይ ችግር መከሰቱ የማይቀር ነው። የኦሮሚያ ክልላዊ መንግስትም በዚህ ደረጃ ትኩረት ሰጥቶበት የመፍትሄ አቅጣጫ በማሰቀመጥ እየሰራ ይገኛል።

የመከላከያ ሰራዊቱ የቆመለትን አላማ በመዘንጋት ያለሙያው በህዝቡ ውስጥ በመግባት ማወክ የማንን አላማ ከግብ ለማድረስ እንደሆነ ተለይቶ መታወቅ አለበት። የፌዴራል መንግስትና የኦሮሚያ ክልላዊ መንግስት ይህንን አሰቃቂ ወንጀል የፈፀሙትን የሰራዊቱ አባላትእና ከበስተጀርባ ሆነው ያቀዱትን ለህግ ለማቅረብ እየሰሩ ይገኛሉ። የሚደረስበት ውጤትም ለህዝቡ ይፋ ይደረጋል።

የክልሉ የጸጥታ አካላትም የክልሉን ህዝብ ሰላም ለማስከበር ማንኛውንም አይነት መስዋዕትነት ለመክፈል ከማንኛውም ጊዜ በላይ ዝግጁ መሆን አለባቸው። ህዝቡ አላስፈላጊ መስዋዕትነት እንዳይከፍል በመረጋጋትና በጥንቃቄ ሊንቀሳቀስ ይገባል። ከሁሉም በላይ መደማመጥና በአንድነት መንቀሳቀስ እጅግ ወሳኝ ነው።

የኦሮሞ ህዝብ ላቀረበው የመብት ጥያቄ፣ መብቱን በሰላማዊ ትግል ለማስከበር ስለተንቀሳቀሰ በቄዬው ላይ በጅምላና በተናጠል የመገደል፣ ከሚኖርበት አከባቢ የመፈናቀልና ሽብር ሊፈፀምበት አይገባም። የኦሮሞ ህዝብ ትናንት የኢትዮጵያን ሉዓላዊነት ለማስከበር ደሙን የከፈለና አገሪቷ ሉዓላዊነቷን ጥብቃ ለዛሬ እንድትበቃ ከሌሎች ህዝቦች ጋር በመሆን የተጠየቀውን ዋጋ ሁሉ የከፈለ ህዝብ ነው። የአገሪቷ ብሄር፣ ብሄረሰቦችና ህዝቦች ትናንት ያንን ሁሉ መስዋዕትነት የከፈሉት ለዚሁ አገር አንድነት፣ ሰላምና ብልፅግና ነው።

You cannot not communicate!

Oromia Delegation in Ethiopian Nations, Nationalities & Peoples Day, Semera, Afar.

This is an axiom which states that you cannot do anything not to convey a message given that behavior is always there with no counterpart. Every one communicates even though some are better at it. Your words or without them, your gestures or their absence, your comments about or the sheer disregard of an issue conveys message.

“You communicate anyway. When it comes to the matter of communication, silence might shout louder than words.”

You communicate anyway. When it comes to the matter of communication, silence might shout louder than words. Silence can be deafening, not because of its stillness and at times awkwardness but because of the understanding why someone resolved to engage in it which not even a word of a sage can express.

In a documentary by Oromia Broadcasting Network (OBN) the president of Oromia Regional State, Obbo Lemma Megersa, speaks about the recent crackdown on rent-seakers and illicit trades. “In Ethiopian history, the most awful and gravely far reaching land abuse that has ever happened is the land of Oromo”, explains Lemma.

Obbo Lemma Megersa also asserts that after his administration has started against this illegal land grab and illicit trades that drained the land resources of Oromia, “those thieves and robbers launched war against Oromia and and his administration.

Dhimmi daangaa bulchiinsaa magaalaa Finfinnee waliin walqabatee jiru bu’uura heera mootummaa FDRI fi mirgaa fi faayidaa ummata Oromoo karaa kabachiisuun hiikuun akkuuma jiruttii ta’ee, dhimmi xiyyeeffannoo barbaadu kan biraa dhimma pilaanii magaalatiiti.
Pilaaniin Finfinnee kanaan dura bahaa turee hirmaannaa mootummaa Oromiyaa fi uummata Oromoo of keessaa hin qabu. Pilaanii Finfinnee keessaatti qophaa’aa ture aadaa duudhaa fi eenyumaa oromoo kan calaqqisiisu miti. Abbaa biyyummaa Oromoo kan agarsiisu miti. Erga heerri mootummaa FDRI bahee boodas dogogoroota yeroo adda addaa turan kallattii sirreessuuf kan akeeku miti. Dhalootni Oromoo itti aanu abbaa biyyummaa isaa akka hubatuu fi abbootiin isaa akkamitti akka jiraataa turan, aadaaa duudhaa fi seenaan Oromoo akkamitti entertain ta’a kan jedhu of keessaa hinqabu.

Pilaaniin qophaa’aa ture lafa qabachuuf qofa qophaa’aa ture jechuun ni danda’ama. Waa’ee ummataa Oromoo fi qonnaan bulaa buqqa’uu dantaa tokkollee hinqabu. Qonaann bulaa Oromoo Caffee isaa, Odaa isaa diigaa deemaa ture. Xurii summaa’aan magaalaa Finfinnee keessa bahee gara maasaa qonnaan bulaa dhaqu utuu miidhaa hinqaqabsiisin akka itti hogganamullee hinkaa’u. Kana waan taa’eef pilaaniin magaalaa Finfinneetti yeroo adda addaa qophaa’aa ture buqqa’uu Oromoorra yeroo mootii Minilk irraa kaasee akka sabaatti gahaa ture kan itti fufsiisaa turedha jechuun nidanda’ama.

Kaayyoon heera mootummaa FDRI bara 1987 tumamee mirga hiree ofii ofiin murteeffachuu sabootaa mirkaneessuun boqonnaa qe’ee ofiirraa buqqa’anii godaanuu cufuuf ture. Oromoon mirga qe’eesaa keessa jiraachuu akka qabaatu gonfachiisuun, abbaan biyyuummaa Oromoo akka kabajamu labsee ture. Dhimmi hiree ofii ofiin murteeffachuu fi mirga abbaa biyyummaa kun bakka hundatti deebii argatee cufamee Finfinneettii utuu hincufamani hafe.

Dhimmi Finfinnee fedhii fi faayidaa Oromoo karaa calaqqisuu qofaan deemu akka qabu herri mootummaa keenya ifatti kaa’ee jira. Rakkoo gama mirga heera mootummaa irratti kaa’ame hojiitti hiikuu dadhabuudhaan walqabatee jiru furuuf qaama biraa kamitiyyuu quba qabuun hindanda’amu. Hundaa ol rakkoon kan hoggansa keenyati. Rakkinichi mirga heerri mootummaa nugonfachiise bilchinaa fi karaa tarsiimawaa ta’een sirnaan oggannee hojiitti hiikuu dadhabuurraa madda. Kanaafuu gama kanaan dhimmota sirreeffachuu qabnu hedduutu jira.

Gama kanaan dhimmi sirraa’uu qabuinni tokkffaan Finfinne akka naannoo of dandeesse tokkootti ilaaluudha. Ilaalchi kun dogoggora waan ta’eef sirraa’uu qaba. Finfinneen qaama Oromiyaati. Mirgi hiree ofii ofiin murteeffachuu Finfinnee daangaa seeraa Oromiyaa keessatti akka ilaalamuu beekuun murteessadha. Dhimmi lammaffaan sirraa’uu qabu akka sabaatti Finfinnee keessa gallee jiraachuu, hojjechuu fi daldaluu soodaachuudha. Ilaalchi Finfinnee keessaa baqachuu, Finfinnee keesatti hoojatanii argachuu sodaachuu jijjiiramuu qaba. Sadaffaa Aadaa fi duudhaa Oromoo dagaagsuuf namni biraa akka nuuf hojjetu barbaadna. Ilaalchi akkasii dogogoradha. Eenyuummmaan Oromoo akka hundee gadi fageeffatu godhuun dirqama hunda keenyaati. Yeroo ammaa kana jiraattota magaalaa Finfinnee keessaa %30 Oromoota akka ta’an ragaaleen ni mul’isu. Ta’us maagaalicha keessatti dhimma sabboonummaa Oromoo irratti waan hinhojjetamneef magaalatii keessa Oromon waan keessa jiraatuyyuu hinfakkaatu. Magaalattii keessatti sabboonummaan Oromoo sadarkaa dhabamuu irra gahee jira. Oromoon gahee abbaa biyyummaasaa akka mirkaneessu sabboonummaa dagaagsuun murteessdha.

Dhimmi sadaffaan caasaan Dh.D.U.O sadarkaa magaalaa irraa kaasee hanga gadiitti hoggansa magaalaa Finfinnee keessa jiru miira abbaa biyyummaa cimaadhaan Oromummaa Finfinnee keessatti cabe iddootti deebisuuf sadarkaa barbaadamutti qabsaa’uu dadhabuu dha. .Hoggansi sadarkaadhaan jiru kuni miira abbaa biyyumaatiin hoggansa tarsiimawaa fi gahumsa qabu kennuudhaan fayyadamummaa ummata keenyaa mirkaneesuun walqabatee hanqinootni mul’atan gara fuula duraatto sirraa’uu qabu.

Dhimmi afraffaan caasaa Godina Addaa waliin kan walqabatudha. Godinni Addaa Oromiyaa Naannawaa Finfiinee walitti hidhamiinsa diinagdee fi hawaasummaa ummatni Oromoo magaalaa Finfinnee waliin qabdu cimsuuf Oromummaa Finfinnee keessatti cabee ture bakkatti deebisuuf sochii godhamu akka tumsu yaadameeti hundaa’e.

Turtii hanga ammaatti GAONF fi Finfinnee gidduu daangaa bulchiinsaa kaawwachuu dadhabuun, ijaarsa addaa adda bulchiinsa magaalaa Finfinnettin daangaa GAONF keessatti raawwatamu callisanii ilaaluun, hanqinoota gama kanaan jiranis ifatti baasanii dubbachuu dadhabuun gara fuula duraatti dhimmoota sirraa’uu qabanidha.
