The Ethiopian government must stop the discriminatory approach and find a durable solution
OSGA Statement on ongoing tensions of civilian conflicts in Ethiopia
June 1, 2013 (OSG Australia) — Troubled relations between Ethiopia’s government and the Oromo people constitute a serious obstacle in the country’s path to stability and prosperity. Indeed, the Ethiopian government’s recent history has been plagued by ethnic conflict and protracted conflicts with government forces, particularly in Oromia and neighboring regions.
Although it has recently started getting some Oromo media attention, for the past 3 years the ongoing invisible war carried out on Oromo, in the Aniya area, massively affected the local people.
By prompts of the Ethiopian government authorities continuing an irritating war launched by Benishangul-Gumuz armed group on Oromo civilians in East Wollega zone that displaced hundreds from their life now counting its half a decade.
The continuing killings of hundreds of Oromo civilians in Eastern Oromia the heavily armed forces labelled Ogaden Special Police and backed by Ethiopian government invaded the area and continuing killings of hundreds of Oromo innocent civilians.
In 2011-2012 the massacre of hundreds of Oromo people, in MoyaleSouthern Oromia, by the thiopian military forces is evidence that shows the brutality of the government.
