Decolonization of Oromiyaa and start of new life with all rights restored

Map Oromia and Horn of AfricaMap Oromia and Horn of AfricaBirth right is not negotiable: Political change should occur not only on the ground but also in the minds of actors. For Oromo change means decolonization of Oromiyaa and start of new life with all rights restored. Swindlers may distort this genuine desire of the people. Did Dr. Abiy notice that to say no compromise about Ethiopia shows determination of continuing colonization? It means denial of victories achieved through tremendous sacrifices and declaration of war to recolonize the south, which includes Oromiyaa on Ethiopia’s behalf. It is overlooking this, that caused bad luck for his predecessors. Article 39 of Ethiopian constitution was supposed to be the only safe way to handle such problems. Going against it by any power could mean hindering the possibility of peoples that were under the empire forming peacefully new democratic union based on equality and their free will.

All the oppressed are demanding for their birth rights which no one has the right to deny them. Peoples of the south are loud and clear, they are saying, they have fallen not as “Dabuub” (South) but as independent entities. “Dabuub” like “Xaqilay gizat” is a division created by the colonizer for own administrative convenience and does not show their real identity or the will to be reconstituted that way. They fell as republics, kingdoms and Sultanates. Priorly it would be better to ask oneself as whom am I deciding for them? Reaching this level of demanding for own rights came through struggle not begging. They are the only ones that can define themselves and the way they live and no one else has the right for that. Hence forth, they want new union to be governed according to their will not them according to empire Ethiopia. The way of empire Ethiopia is slave drivers’ way. For the present government asking them to follow the old way would mean being decadent and reactionary. Since it is a transitional government, this government must only serve what nations and nationalities agree to.
A nation is totality of groups in it, rich or poor. Minilik was king of the Amaaraa leading his country with Amaara supremacist ideology. His army was recruited from different peoples including Europeans. He ruled countries he occupied with supremacy of Amaaraa religion, culture, tradition and language. Empire system he established is still not changed though crimpled. Trying to reactivate that system is naiveite. Therefore, to say there was no national oppression in Ethiopia is ridiculous. Italians were held responsible for crimes committed by fascists and so the Germans. Amaaraa cannot be different. List of crimes committed against humanity can be found in their own old archives. When Nafxanyaa system hopefuls speak about Ethiopia they have in mind at best the kingdom under Teedros. When they say tribe and race, they meant those in there; as for others they are different and free from them. They consider all of them only as their underlings that have to be forced to live according to their will not having own thoughts. They make all addressing in Amharic because they are talking to agitate own people. That is why they take Ethiopianism for granted when they talk. The movement based on deny all to absolve Amaara from their past is underway domestically and internationally coordinated from Araat Kilo. They take this as an opportunity for payback.
The present ruler must be the last of colonizers that say my way or the highway. People reached here with sacrifices. With their sacrifices they will win their freedom. They have two alternatives: declare their independence or form new union based on equality freedom, democracy and free will. Late alone one that does not have mandate, even those that claim divine origin were gotten rid of by the peoples. Activists of Oromo northern neighbors have to start thinking in modern terms rather than unrealizeable ambitions and unfounded legends for sake of peace and regional stability. It must be known that peoples are sovereign. To realize it the peaceful way is preferable. Oromiyaan haa jiraattu
