About Us and Our Country Oromia
Oromo people live mostly in Ethiopia, but there are some Oromo residents in Kenya and Somalia. Our home land in Ethiopia is about 600,000 sq. km. This area is more than half of the area of current Ethiopian empire. We call our home country Oromia. Oromia is the largest region in the Ethiopian empire. It extends from east to west and from north to south of Ethiopia. It borders with Somalia, Kenya, Sudan, and with most of the other Ethiopian ethnic groups. Finfinne (Addis Ababa), a current capital of Ethiopia and the sit of African Union, is the capital of Oromia as well.
The population of Oromo is estimated to 40 million, about half the population of Ethiopia. Our people mainly live on agriculture (coffee, several crops, spices, vegetables) and animal husbandry, Oromia is the richest region in the Horn of Africa. Livestock products, coffee, oil seeds, spices, mineral resources and wild life are all diverse and abundant. The East African big rivers such as Blue Nile, Awash, Genalle, Gibe, and Didesa source from Oromia, or pass through it. Oromia has a varied and conducive weather both for living and investment.
Our country Oromia is currently under the control of the Ethiopian colonial Empire. We the Oromo nation, as the most numerous nations in Africa, enjoy homogeneous culture and shares a common language, history and descent, and once shared common political, religious and legal institutions. During our long history, our people developed its own cultural, social and political system known as the Gadaa system. Gadaa was a uniquely democratic political and social institution that governed the live of every individual in the Oromo society from birth to death.
We were a free self-governing country. But like our friend African communities we were the victim of the scramble for Africa of the 19th century. We were colonised, our Gadaa self-rule was banned, our identity denied, our people were sold as slaves, our language and cultural heritage was destroyed. While the colonised African communities are free and enjoying and celebrating their freedom, we Oromo are still in colony, still displaced, still in mass imprisonment, torture and face disappearances.
Today our children are killed on in their village. Just recently more than 70 Oromo students killed, thousands disappeared and thousands more jailed because they aired their concern on the Addis Ababa Master Plan that is to display 2 million Oromo of their land.
Only few people know the fact that Ethiopia is still a colonial empire. The successive rules of Ethiopian were one of the colonisers and still are. We are in still in colony. This is the reason why many Oromo are refugees in many African and Middle East countries. This is the reason why Ethiopia is the corner of conflict. This is the reason why it is the poorest country in the world.
We need freedom, we need peace, we need the right to self-rule, and we need dignity as human beings. But we are still denied of these basic human rights. Our justice looks like this fellow victim of the Ethiopian colonial empire.
The knowledge of this fact by you is nearly enough for us. Please search the web know more about us. We need your help. Put your caring eyes on us; and stretch your helping hand for us. Please also care for Oromo refugees in your country back home. Our people need this truth be known to the peace loving brothers and sisters. Please speak blog and chat about this injustice. Please join us in exposing this inhumanity to the world.
