We, members of Union of Oromo
students in Germany (UOSG), protest
against human rights
violation practices of criminal regime of Ethiopia
known as Tigray
People’s Liberation Front or Ethiopian
People Revolutionary Democratic Front (TPLF
). For example the Oromia
Support Group in United
Kingdom, a non-political organization to raise awareness of human rights
violations in Ethiopia
, has reported four thousand two hundred seventy nine (4,279) extra-judicial killings and 987 disappearances of civilians in Ethiopia
from 1994 – 2010.
regime’s anti peace
characteristics are demonstrated by multidimensional human rights
violations: eviction of peasants from ancestral land without compensation, large-scale displacement of rural communities through initiation & aggravation of local conflicts, killing freedom
of expressions, illegal interferences in religious affairs, increasing refugees
, environmental degradation, perpetrating & aggravating conflicts in the Horn of Africa
, maintaining border conflicts, negative impacts of border war
crime in Somalia
, and etc.
We believe it is necessary to refrain from sponsoring anti peace
and authoritarian policies of the TPLF
regime in order to realize sustainable peace
and stability particularly in Ethiopia
and generally in the Horn of African region. Principle of peace
& security for all humanity is the universal value that it should also be applicable for the human beings in Ethiopia
and the horn of Africa
Therefore we appeal
respectfully to families of international communities in general and the federal
democratic government of Germany in particular to stop indirect or direct involvements in activities suppressing the struggle of the Oromo
people in particular and the oppressed peoples of the Horn of African region.
We would like to remind you that objectives of the struggle of the Oromo
people are to overcome century old injustice, to live in freedom
, to build peace
, to practice democracy, and to achieve stability.
Justice and Peace Shall Prevail!
