It is enough! We do not need someone far from Abyssinia to come and implement the oppressive and arrogant policies on our land!

Tibebu Demeke from Hof, Germany

In the eyes of any country in the world, Ethiopia looks and is considered as one unit, but for almost one and  half  century  it  has never integrated all of its regions, nations and nationalities  into one political community with equality and justice. North Ethiopia or traditionally called the Abyssinia has for long  till now controlled the socio-political & economic power in the North as well as in the South which consists of regions conquered by the rulers of the North in the late 19th century. Since the South was a conquered and subjugated region, its land was divided among the heads of state and superiority of the North and owned by them until the late 1970′s till 1974 Revolution made land property of the state.  As the system before the Revolution was feudalism, farmers in the South owned neither the farmlands nor the products of the farmlands; called the Gebbar (Serfdom) System. The landlords owned the outputs of farmers as well as the farmlands. And no such land system existed in the North, where farmers owned their farmlands and their products as well.

Although from 1974 till 1991( during the military junta) a uniform land system was put in place across all regions in Ethiopia and the regime successfully abolished  colonial land tenures  of Abyssinian monarchic regime  through the  socialist revolution of Ethiopia , the regime became the absolute owner of the land and  was   not  ready  to  respond  for the  political  quest  of  self-determination  rights of  colonized  peoples  of Oromia, Eretria,  and  other Southern  Ethiopia positively,  rather continued  dictating  the  colonial empire of socialist Abyssinia for 17 years  through  civil wars.  And now almost from 1991 on  during the TPLF regime we notice the reemergence of the North-South divide about land ownership & management system just like the one which existed in the year 1889 – 1974 /during the Imperial regime /.  Instead of having a uniform land ownership and management system, the current regime which hails from the North has launched a Green Revolution in the North where land is owned and managed by the farmers themselves while vast hectares of prime farmlands are being sold to foreign governments and international companies in the South. This practice is commonly known as’’ land grabbing’’. (The Evil Strategies of Land Grabbing in the Southern Part of Ethiopia, By Assefa  Getachew E-mail: assefageta@yahoo.com)

Land grabbing is defined as the snatching of land by  a  nation,  state,  or  organization,  especially  illegally  or unfairly  (Dictionary.com),  this definition mainly reflects land use policies of direct colonization of a nation or a  country  by  cover  of  civilization; however  the  following  definition  is  a  reflection of  indirect  colonization  through  politics of  global  economy. The most common definition of global land grabbing refers to large scale land acquisition be it purchase or lease for agricultural production by foreign investors (Daniel and Mittal, 2009).  It is a new form of agricultural neo-colonialism. The term land grabbing is therefore to depict on one hand, the colonial character of land acquisition by foreigners and on the other hand the illegitimacy and illegality of the practice. By forcing and evicting the Oromo farmers, huge plots of land was already sold to foreign investors and Ethiopian highlanders having close connection to the ruling political party. But the fact is that Land in Oromia belongs to the Oromo people and it is only the Oromo people that should make the decision rather than someone from far away as Tigray to give away the Oromo lands.

The current regime has sold out several million hectares of fertile land to the foreigner investors after forcedly displacing Oromo farmers from their ancestral land. This grabbing of land ended the indigenous people without shelter and foods. The government is saying that the land given to investors is bare or grazing land but here I am personally a witness for this and other related issues, I am an agronomist, Horticulture department who had been working as a supervisor in one of those rose production farms, other than that I had a lot of agronomist friends working on the same sector in different parts of Oromia and had a good access of getting information about the ongoing issues all over the Oromia region.  I made a close contact with different Guards of different farms especially where I have been working, and they used to tell me the whole details of their ancestral lands which they were producing huge amount of Teff, wheat, barley and other related crops but now they are ended without land and they are merely guards paid from 35-45 dollars a month which cannot feed their children, fail even to full fill the necessary teaching materials of their elementary class students. This displacement of the Oromo people accompanied by limitless human right violations set the Oromo to be the vast number of immigrants in the horn of Africa too. http://farmlandgrab.org/cat/show/116

Those who protest are being targeted for arrest, torture and finally exposed for the extra –judicial killings. Journalists and human rights advocating in Ethiopia who speak out against these abuses are silenced or exiled. Giving such large plots of land to private investors exposes the Oromo people to aggravated poverty, expands serious food insecurity, restricts their free movement with large cattle as they used to do in the past, intensifies conflict, degrades ecosystem and advances violation of human rights. The evicted Oromo farmers will later be going to the towns and start begging for the survival, or be employed as cheap guards and day-laborers to work day and night on their own lands without owning the outputs, similar to the feudal system of the Ethiopia before 1974. On top of that, the environment in the South will degrade as heavy usages of agricultural additives spill into ground waters, and that has a big risk for the cattle’s and people in general, it is a very serious issue now a days, as an example in central Oromia thousands of people and their livestock died due to the industrial pollution directly released to rivers and lakes http://oromialandinfo.wordpress.com/2013/10/08/.

Unlike the Green Revolution in Tigray, the goal of the Land Grabbing generally in South and particularly in Oromia is not to avoid famine, but to export all of the grains out of the food-strapped Ethiopia so that the rulers can get foreign currency in return – similar to other export cash crops, such as coffee, chat and others. Thus Successive Ethiopian regimes coming out of Abyssinia and controlling the whole political and socio-economic power developed arrogant discriminations that mainly targeted the Oromo people. This trend apparently observed among, both the past and current, Ethiopian regimes and partners. Since the current regime is reassuring the subjugation, disregarding and repression policy of the old regime. And the TPLF regime strategically manipulates insecurity and instability to achieve the hidden objective of damaging the livelihood assets of the Oromo peoples.  Therefore land grabbing by TPLF regime for global investors is nothing to do with improvement of subsistence livelihoods of rural communities of the Oromo people  rather  it is Ethiopia’s deliberate policies of forced relocation, discrimination, repression, and as it is explained environmental devastated are enabled, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-11991926 .

Generally it needs our all group and individual involvement in the Oromo national struggle, if we do that, without any doubt we will liberate and save our land!!

Freedom to the oppressed Oromo nation!!

Chaltu as Helen: an everyday story of Oromos traumatic identity change

Oromoland EDnote:

Chaltu ‘s story is the story of thousands of oromos if not millions in the urban areas of the Ethiopian empire. Similar stories can be drawn for example derartu aka tsige, abdisa aka tewodros or kumaye aka legesse. Even though these stories are told in afaan oromo, tesfay’s work is the first of its kind in creating a character in the Amharic language literature. These and other works of tesfaye asserts the barbaric nature of this systematic discrimination perpetuated by the pseudo feudal regimes and the Abyssinia barbaric rule. These kind of stories have a paramount importance to be told as the quest for the freedom of the oromo people is the result of such personal agony. We once again would like to send our deep gratitude to TESFAYE GEBRAABE.

by Tigist Geme

(OPride) – Author and novelist Tesfaye Gebreab released his eighth book “Ye Sidetengaw Mastawesha” – an immigrant’s memoir ­– online, as a free PDF, after an alleged fallout with his publisher, Netsanet Publishing Agency (NPA).

The dramatic decision to distribute the book for free – at an estimated loss of $30,000 – came, according to Tesfaye’s people, after NPA leaked a doctored copy of the book following the author’s refusal to omit two controversial chapters, one of which is about Oromo.

Dhiibbaa kanneen keessaa inni angafti gaaffiin hiree murteeffannaa ka’uu isaa ti. Waan Godinaa Gaanfa Afrikaa godinoota Afrikaa hafan irraa adda taasisu keessaa qaxbiin angafti ka’uu gaaffii kanaa ti. Biyyoota Gaanfa Afrikaa keessaa kan gaaffii kana hin keessummeessine hin jiru. Mirga hiree murteeffannaa gonfachuudhaaf biyyoota Gaanfa Afrika hunda keessatti qabsoon hidhannoo geggeeffamaa ture. Har’a geggeeffamaa jira. Qabsoon kun garii milkiidhaan xumuramanii jiru. Kan Eritrean geggeessaa turte, walabummaa Eritrea dhugoomsuudhaan bara 1993 keessa xumurame. Kan warri Sudan Kibbaa geggeessaa turanis walabummaa Sudan Kibbaa dhugoomsuudhaan bara 2011tti xumurame. Walabummaan biyyoota kanneen lamaanii addunyaadhaan fudhatamee jira. Kan fudhatama akkasii hin argatin hafe biyyi walabummaa labsate sadaffaanis ni jira. Kunis Somaliland dha.

Haala Somaliland booda itti deebinee ilaalla. Ammaaf kan Eritrea fi Sudan Kibbaa wajjin ha turru. Biyyootni kun lamaan walabummaa gonfachuun keessa isaaniitti fi isaanii fi olloota isaani gidduutti nagaan ni bu’a jedhamee hawwamaa ture.

Eritrea keessaa humnootni maqaa Kunamaa fi Affaariin sosso’aa jiran ni jiru. Sudan Kibbaa keessas sabootni hacuuccaa Dinkaa mormuu himatanii sosso’aa jiran ni jiru. Eritrea fi olloota isee hundaa gidduuttis waldhabbiin yeroo adda addaatti ka’aa ture. Sudan Kibbaa fi Sudan gidduus waldhabbiin itti fufee jira. Kanaaf, walabummaa gonfachuun ummatoota mirga hiree murteeffannaatiif qabsaawaa turan waan fayyade hin qabu. Nagaan hin buufneef. Mirga ambummaa hin dhandhamsiifne. Sadarkaa itti gaaffiin mirga hiree murteeffannaa ka’utu jijjiirame malee, gaaffichi deebii hin arganne.

Moyxannoon Somaliland faallaa kanaa ti. Gosootni Somaliland keessatti argaman Isaaq, Gadabursii, Dhulbahantee fi kanneen xixiqqoo hafan biraa ti. Isaan kana keessaa guddichi Isaaqi. Akka mootummaan Siad Barree garagaleen gosoota kanneen hundaa gidduutti lolli belbele. Dabalees, Isaaqotni ofiifuu adda babahanii wal lolan.

Godinaa Gaanfa Afrikaa keessaa biyyi dimokraatawaan Somaliland qofa jechuu dandeenya. Ummatichi sirna ittiin bulu tumachuu irratti kallachaan qooda qabaate. Sirnichi kan isaa ti.

Kunis mootummaan Somaloota hafanii Gaanfa deebi’ee tolfamee Somaliland dhuunfachuudhaaf kajeeluun waan maluuf.

Haalli ittiin Somaliland walabummaa isee gonfattee kan warra kaan lamaanii irraa adda. Qooda fudhatiinsa ummataatiin labsame malee hogganni ajaja ummataa jala hin jirre hin mirkaneessine. Somaliland akka biyyaatti walabummaa qaba. Ummatni isaas bilisummaa qaba. Moyxannoo warra hafee keessatti garuu biyyatu walabummaa qaba malee ummatni bilisummaa hin qabu. Walabummaa dhaadheessuu qofaan akka ummatichi bilisummaa hin Gaanfatne godhamaa jira. Kana irraahis waa baruu qabna. Walabummaan bilisummaa malee dhalachuu danda’a.
