Ethiopians in Finland & Ethio-Finns urge Finland & the int’l community to avert ethnic cleansing in Ethiopia

Ethiopians resident in Finland and Ethio-Finns on July 30, 2020 held a rally in Helsinki against an attempt to replay the Rwandan Genocide of 1994 by young Oromo extremists in Ethiopia. Those committing such evil are driven in an Hitlerite manner by their ‘educated’ Oromo brethren, the largest and most destructive collection associated with smaller and little known American universities.

Between June 29 and early July 2020, those individuals from abroad, some of them PhD holders, facilitated the horrifying slaughters of citizens and destructions of a poor nation’s economic assets and production capacities, both public and private. Those assets were supposed to provide jobs to the jobless—in some instances—like themselves. In every sense, their action has proved inhuman and insane. Who else could do that to his folks and their country.

Hoopla! Their pretext this time is the assassination of Ethiopia’s much-adored Oromo singer Hachalu Hundessa! What could have Hachalu said about this madness in his name?

In organizing this Helsinki rally, therefore, the goal of Ethiopians and Ethio-Finns is to appeal to the Finnish Government and the international community to help their Motherland overcome the repeated attempts by Oromo extremists, who out of inhumanity and insanity have been trying to borrow their template for “mass slaughter” in Ethiopia from the 1994 Rwandan Civil War.”

In Rwanda, as a genocide against the Tutsi they used the derogatory word nyenzi (cockroaches) as they hacked their victims. The Oromo killers referred to members of the non-Oromo ethnic groups they had list of the citizens they planned to eliminate and referred to them as ‘neftenga’—historically applied to arms bearing Amharas. In this latest brutal slaughter of citizens has also been extended to Oromos so long as they are Orthodox Christians—the Oromo gangs having ethnicity and religion as the basis for their criminal acts.

Recent violence in Ethiopia’s Oromia region shows hallmark signs of ethnic cleansing, says MRG

Minority Rights Group International (MRG) unequivocally condemns the recent violence, harassment, and intimidation against minorities in Ethiopia’s Oromia region, which show disturbing hallmark signs of ethnic cleansing.

Reports to MRG as well as media coverage show that following the tragic murder of Hachalu Hundessa, a renowned Oromo singer and activist, an organised and large group of predominantly young people from the Oromo community killed members of ethnic minorities in the region and burned down hotels, schools, business centres and residential homes belonging to ethnic Amharas and Gurage people, though the properties of Christian Oromos were also damaged.

The Oromo are Ethiopia’s largest ethnic group, making up an estimate 35 per cent of the population, while the Amhara are the second largest ethnic group in the country. Jointly, the two communities account for an estimated 60 per cent of the population. The Oromo have themselves long faced marginalisation and exclusion at the hands of the central government; in this instance, those targeted have largely comprised members of other ethnic groups which constitute minorities in Oromia region.

US Ambassador Patricia Haslach parts Ethiopia, not with media encounter but farewell remarks to US Embassy staff in Addis Abeba

One question departing career ambassadors usually confront at the end of their tour of duty in a given country, as I pointed out in a commentary of August 7, 2013, is whether they should say something to the press, and if so how much they should say about their experiences in the country they are stationed in.

On the International Human Rights Day, the US Secretary of State John Kerry called on the TPLF regime “to stop stifling free and open media”, unaware that the ethnic regime has so much violence up its sleeves against Ethiopians.

ለአማሮች መፈናቀል ተጠያቂ የተባሉ 2 የቤኒሻንጉል ጉምዝ ምክር ቤት አባላት ያለመከሰስ መብት ተነሳ: ምን ይፈይዳል?

    የአዘጋጁ አስተያየት

    የተፈናቀሉት አማሮች መመለሳቸው ቢነገርም፡ መንግሥት ወንጀሉ የሚገባውን ክብደት ባለመስጠቱ፤ አሁንም ችግሩ እንደቀጠለ ነው። በመሆኑም የተመለሱት ግለስቦች፡ አሁንም በአጥቂዎቻቸው ክፋትና ወንጀል እይተፈጸመባችው መሆኑ በብዙ ምንጮች ይነገራል። መንግሥት ገና ከጥዋቱ ጉራ ፈርዳ ላይ ወስዶ ቢሆን ኖሮ፡ በሌሎችም ክልሎች መስፋፋቱ ብቻ ሳይሆን፡ በቤኒሻንጉል መደጋገሙ ባልተስማ ነበር። ሁኔታው መንግሥት እራሱን እንደዚህ ዐይነት ዓላማና አስተሳሰብ ካላቸው ግለስቦችና ድርጅቶች ማጽዳቱን አጠራጣሪ አድርጎታል።

    ለዚህም ነው እንዲህ ያለ የዘር ማጽዳት ወንጀል ኢትዮጵያ ውስጥ በያዝነው 21ኛ መቶ ክፍለ ዘመን መካሄዱ፡ ዛሬም ነገም ገና ብዙ የሚያነጋግር አሳዛኝ ድርጊት የሚሆነው።

የቤኒሻንጉል ጉምዝ ክልል ምክር ቤት ባካሄደው 2ኛ አስቸኳይ ጉባዔው በአማራ ክልል ተወላጆች ማፈናቀል ላይ ተሳታፊ ናቸው ያላቸው ሁለት የምክር ቤቱ አባላትን ያለመከሰስ መብት አነሳ፡፡
ምክርቤቱ ያለመከሰስ መብታቸውን ያነሳው በክልሉ የካማሺ ዞን ዋና አስተዳዳሪና የዞኑ የኮሚዩኒኬሽን ጉዳዮች ጽህፈት ቤት ኃላፊን ነው፡፡

ምክር ቤቱ በዋና አስተዳዳሪው አቶ ወልተጂ በጋሎ እና በኮሚዩኒኬሽን ጉዳዮች ጽህፈት ቤት ኃላፊ በአቶ ገርቢ በጊዜ ላይ ከክልሉ ፓሊሲ ኮሚሽን እና ከፍትህ ቢሮ የምርመራ ቡድኖችን አደራጅቶ መረጃዎችን በማጠናከር ግለሰቦቹን ለህግ ለማቅረብ የሚያስችል ጥልቅ ምርመራ መደረጉን ገልጿል፡፡

የግለሰቦቹ አድራጎት የክልሉ መንግስትና ህዝብን ስም ያጎደፈ በመሆኑ ከስልጣናቸው ተነስተው በህግ እንዲጠየቁ ያለመከሰስ መብታቸው እንዲነሳ በአብላጫ ድምፅ አፅድቋል፡፡
