A Call for "After the Dust Settles"

One of my readers writes:

"Dear Oromo Affairs blogger,

Thank you for all your articles and being one of the constant voices for the liberation of Oromia. Would you be kind enough to post for me the following appeal to Oromo community around the world?" Margituu Lataa

My pleasure. Here you go!


A Call for "After the Dust Settles"

In the last two weeks, a number of Oromo organization representatives, Oromo individuals and concerned global citizens have written letters to the President of Columbia University, in opposition to the invitation extended to Meles Zenawi. In spite of this justifiable outcry, Meles has spoken at Columbia and is gone away.

Is this the end of the story? I hope not! Are we going to congratulate ourselves by saying, “Ni gooneef mitii?” I take the incident as a blessing in disguise. Because of the invitation, and because of the protest letters written in opposition to the invitation, more true nature of Meles Zenawi has been put on the spot light. Many peace, freedom and justice-loving people have been given pools of information that is strong enough to put Meles on the same list as Milosevic of Serbia, Charles Taylor of Liberia and Al Basher of the Sudan, in the near future. Who knows, we might even send a “Thank You” letter, to President Lee C. Bollinger of Columbia University.

Having said that, I want to extend a call to Oromo nationals, and more specifically, the Oromo scholars and intellectuals, to join hands with Waraana Bilisummaa Oromoo (WBO) and help it get rid of the current sustainers of Ethiopian Colonialism, and deny anybody that might come after them any means of subjecting our people to endless atrocities. The LIBERATION OF OROMIA IS THE ONLY SOLUTION! Meles will go home in a few days and would defiantly continue with his genocidal policies against our people. Pleas stay on the fighting mood and do not “go home”. Continue writing and help the struggle to liberate Oromia, in every means possible.

Have your say!
