#OromoProtests is a non-violent grassroots movement that spans the globe, started in 2014-2018 by the Oromo youth in an effort to end systemic violence towards Oromo people and to build a better model for marginalized communities of Ethiopia to effect positive change. The success from the last campaign: in changing the leadership of the nation, freeing of political prisoners across the political spectrum, returning the free press to Ethiopia, and also getting scheduled the first free and fair elections to take place in the nation’s existence. Current events have once again galvanized the community to organize for the same demands as before. The constitutional term of the government is ending 10/5/2020, putting the federation in a constitutional crisis, and there are no scheduled elections on the horizon. The Oromo youth are once more demanding an end to PM Abiy’s transitional government for backtracking on the policies of political freedoms that were won with about 5K dead unarmed protesters and 50,000 Oromo political prisoners according to observers highlighted on Oromia Media Network (OMN). Freeing all political prisoners is the bedrock of any democracy, PM Abiy recently imprisoned the largest opposition parties against his Prosperity Party across the political spectrum in Ethiopia’s many federal nations. We see continued risk to Oromo human rights activists and singers as they are becoming increasingly the targets of right-wing terror movements encouraged by the administration’s active use of dog-whistle racism towards marginalized communities. To add to the general lack of security in Oromia and all states of the federation, the assassination of the most prolific Oromo human rights activist and singer, Haacaaluu Hundeessaa by agents of Ethiopia’s federal security forces, has shown the animosity built towards marginalized communities in Ethiopia. By combating and countering acts of systemic violence, creating spaces for Oromo imagination and innovation, and centering Oromo joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives and spaces for our diverse communities to live as dignified humans in the regions’ and nations’ democratic future.
