Final Press Release: The Founding of Peoples’ Alliance for Freedom and Democracy (PAFD)

pafd1Delegates of Benishangul People’s Liberation Movement (BPLM), Gambella People’s Liberation Movement (GPLM), Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF), Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) and Sidama National Liberation Front (SNLF) met in Oslo, Norway from 22 October to 23 October 2015 to lay the foundation of political alliance between the peoples in Ethiopia and have formed the Peoples Alliance for Freedom and Democracy (PAFD).

The PAFD will create an opportunity for all peoples in Ethiopia to co-create a transitional political order that is based on the consent of all peoples, where the outmoded hegemonic culture of a single group dominating the rest is dismantled and a new just political order is established, where the respect of the right to self-determination is genuinely granted to all.

PAFD will conduct diplomatic, advocacy, information and other campaigns to change the current undemocratic political culture and oppressive system in Ethiopia.

PAFD will have a Governing Council (GC) composed of representatives of the political leadership of the founding organisations and members representing the civil societies of the respective communities.

The Governing Council will elect an Executive Committee (EC), a chairperson and two vice-chairpersons that rotate yearly among the organization members. The Executive Committee will be the standing committee and will have the bureaus of diplomacy, organization, finance, information and others.

PAFD call upon all peoples in Ethiopia to join the alliance and support it in order to end the suffering and dehumanization of all peoples in Ethiopia by the current government. PAFD call upon the regional and international communities, to play a positive role in diffusing this looming danger by supporting the peoples in Ethiopia rather than the illegitimate government before it is too late.

Finally, PAFD call upon the current government in Ethiopia to refrain from all acts of violence, respect human rights, obey the rule of law, and commit to peaceful and democratic resolution of political conflicts.

Declaration of the establishment of the Peoples’ Alliance for Freedom and Democracy (PAFD)

pafd2The Benishangul People’s Liberation Movement (BPLM), Gambela People’s Liberation Movement (GPLM), Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF), Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) and Sidama National Liberation Front (SNLF):

Considering the grave injustices and oppression perpetrated by the current regime in Ethiopia

Concerned by the massive propaganda campaign undertaken by the Ethiopian government intended to deceive the peoples in Ethiopia and the international community in order to legitimise and continue its dictatorial and repressive rule;

Cognizant of the need for a united effort among the oppressed peoples in Ethiopia to put an end to the unremitting cruel repression perpetrated by successive and current regimes of the empire;

Taking into account the current lack of political vision by some opposition groups in Ethiopia to embrace the political and social changes that Ethiopia has undergone over the last fifty years, as the result of the heavy prices paid by the nations in Ethiopia for the right of self-determination and rejecting their archaic adherence to political precepts no longer tenable in the 21 century such as negating the rights of nations in Ethiopia to self-determination;

Categorically stating that our people, who fought and still continue fighting with their blood against successive oppressive regimes in Ethiopia, will never give up on the fruits of their struggle and allow reversal of their historic gains for the right of self-determination;

Have formed the Peoples Alliance for Freedom and Democracy (PAFD), which will foster the favorable conditions that will bring an opportunity for all the peoples in Ethiopia to co-create a political order that will practically allow all to exercise genuine democratic rights including the right to self-determination;

Therefore the Peoples’ Alliance for Freedom and Democracy (PAFD) will:

  1. Strive through the peoples’ power to dismantle the outmoded hegemonic culture of a single group dominating the rest and will establish and a new, just political order.
  2. Establish a Political Order that derive its legal authority through effective, democratically elected organs and legal processes that are based on a pluralist consensus and genuine universal suffrage where relationships are established through impartial and authentic exercise of self-determination where both individual and people’s rights are fully respected.
  3. Endeavour to achieve a peaceful and orderly transfer of power to the peoples in Ethiopia by engaging representatives of all the different nations, nationalities and other stakeholders committed to genuine democracy in Ethiopia.
  4. Guarantee that all changes, arrangements and configurations that are intended to end the recurrent conflicts in Ethiopia must be based on the will and consent of each and every nation and nationality in the Ethiopian empire state;

Finally, the PAFD calls on all concerned parties, including the current government of Ethiopia, the representatives of all nations and nationalities in Ethiopia with the facilitation of the international community to seize this opportunity and hold a comprehensive conference to create a broader roadmap to thereby resolve the enormous problems confronting the Ethiopian Empire state.

PAFD also calls the international community to respect the wishes, desires and rights of all the nations and nationalities in Ethiopia in their engagments and understand that all status quo is untenable, and a recipe for a simmering disaster that will end in castarophe unless remedied in opportune time.

    Well-done! We are strong when we unite. We must stand-up for our people to stop this aggression of tplf fascist to eliminate our people from their land. We must step up fast our struggle to defeat this Nero fascist tplf soon. They will be defeated. Defeated by our unity. Our unity is enemy to tplf. They do not like to see us united, therefore our current generation must be smarter than tplf never allow tplf to disunite us. tplf must be defeated soon they are enemy of all the people of that country.

    I am okay with the formation of the unity, though each ethnic group has its own internal and external problems. Back home, population wise,it appears to me some what difficult to reconcile the problem and conflicts that exist between each ethnics. For. e.g. Somali vs Oromos, Oromos vs Benshanguel, Oromos vs Gambellas, and off course even if currently we don’t hear anything between Oromos and Sidamas, there has been an ongoing local skirmishes between these neighboring ethnics, especially with Arsi Oromos, the reason being pastoral. I hope officials from ethnic should be aware about the enemy using these conflict as the major strategy to instigate and aggravate the old sores between the nations and teach their respective communities through any possible means. The time for the enemy to play such role must end and the people should understand very well, even if there is a deliberate push from the enemy.

    Now, we have two opposing forces ( G-5 & G-7), who struggle to dismantle the same enemy that is sucking the blood of our people that could probably let the minority Tigre regime kneel down.

    It seems promising and it needs trust, courage, determination and a lot of sacrifice. Just forming unity/party without trust between each of the member party would ultimately lead to failure and the enemy would further pee on the head of each of us. So, MIND YOU!

    Good news! It’s my ultimate belief that the change in the backward, archaic and barbaric Ethiopia’s political culture is a cardinal necessity. The core of problem of Ethiopia’s predicament is more than the TPLF/EPRDF regime, it’s a deeply embodied political culture. Glad to read that PFAD has the theme to change the political culture of Ethiopia, which is inherently cruel, uncivil and undemocratic.

    “so-called alliance is a cover up for Ethiopian agenda and there is no difference between AFD and PAFD. It is dead horse. The idea behind PAFD is to join Ginbot 7.” Oromo wake up. do not foolish yourself 100 time. every things come through your unity and strength.

    Oromia shall be free!!!!!

      Yomiyyuu – don’t be cry baby. Why do you think they form their own alliance if they want to join G7? what a moron. Do what you can if you believe in struggle instead of criticizing and writing something that is not written.

    the Oromo and the surrounding people have lived in harmony for many years, although the Habash has created a means of isolate and rule, instigating a misunderstanding. Except the habashas who are set with colonial mentality, the rest of the people can make a true people’s nation. The habash is equipped with a century old and backward mentality of ruling. Ethiopia minus the habash people or with a well diminished and curtailed category of them will definitely create a long lasting peace. This alliance is well done and the only way to counter the divisive and colonial nature of the habasha
    Good luck

  11. smart political move October 24, 2015 at 9:04 am #

    OLF is getting matured and following the right path to Oromian independence. Dividing the enemy camp and uniting the forces against the Ethiopian colonial rule is the right way to go.Therefore, I fully and wholeheartedly support this new alliance morally, politically, financially, materially etc. For those who oppose the alliance, it clearly shows that the alliance has started bearing fruit by sending shock of fear and hate down the spine of the enemy. This is the day that our enemy do not even hate to see in dream leave alone in reality. So, we should not waste our time on responding to those who oppose the alliance because, the sound of the frogs in the river, cant scare the cows from drinking water.

  12. Obang October 24, 2015 at 9:09 am #

    This alliance will make the unity of Gambela people and the Oromo people more stronger and solid. This historical ties and neighborly relationship between these people with the same colonial history make the alliance the perfect opportunity for these people to realize their God given right to independence.

  13. Girma Hagos October 24, 2015 at 9:12 am #

    This alliance cant scare us because, leave alone with other ethiopian people, Oromo people do not have unity among themselves. So, this so called alliance do not worth anybody’s attention.

    Interesting. What is next? The unity of PAFD and G-7 or Berhanu Nega and Daud Ibsaa? You know what? There is no organization on Earth which has weak members as the OLF. They are like a flock of sheep that will follow its leaders into the den of hyenas. Too bad for the Oromo who are being tortured daily in Ethiopia’s prisons the name of the OLF.

    Hagos, yes, the so-called unity may not scare you or anyone. But you are jubiliating too early. PAFD or not Oromia shall be free!

  19. Abdulwahab October 24, 2015 at 10:55 am #

    I did not support this alliance when it first appeared on ayyaantuu.com but as I am a democrat, the support this alliance garnered from the majority of the Oromoo people forced me to accept and support this alliance. So now, I have decided to respect the alliance and support it by all means the alliance need.

  20. Dorii Tulluu October 24, 2015 at 12:25 pm #

    @abdulwahab

    Which are the majority of the Oromo people who you declare have supported the Alliance? Have you done a survey already? What percent of the Oromo are supporting theallance?

    Please don’t make the Oromo struggle so ridiculous making ridiculous sttatements.

  21. Elemaa October 24, 2015 at 12:53 pm #

    go forward, go forward, go forward OLF. I have blessed your journey. Never listen to those who make noise because they neither hurt or benefit you. These people who are against these alliance will prove you right very soon. And some will continue crying like a child even that day when they witness the flag of independent Oromia flying high on the top of colonial palace at Daalattii, Finifinnee.

  22. Hirphaa October 24, 2015 at 3:22 pm #

    PAFD is a Trojan Horse through which Oromiyaa and Oromo are intended to be destroyed. This is the mission of Daawuud Ibsaa. Those who are crying to support this enemy of our people are ‘hoolota’, harroota, raatootaa fi janjoftoota Daawuud Ibsaa horatee fi guddifatee dha. You will see sooner than later the death and burial of PAFD. I remember you the gantuus supported AFD in 2006 and now again in 2015 you are supporting PAFD. AFD=PAFD. Its death is imminent and a forgone conclusion.

    Death to PAFD!

  23. Callaa October 24, 2015 at 4:24 pm #

    Dorii is a typical jijjiramaa. After trying for many years to change OLF program from within and lost hope they opted to cut and run or deserted OLF and formed their jijjiramaa. Then they came out with the new politcal program that rejects OROMUMMAA and endorsed ETHIOPIAWINET. This was what they called Change or Jijjiramaa.

    Then they told us now Habeshas and all other ethiopian nationals and nationalities will give us suport. The WESTERNS are also with us. It was the OLF PROGRAM that became hindrance to our success. So surrendering is the solution.

    Now three or four years later it is proven wrong that no organization, no westerners or indviduals have come to suport them or work with them. They have miserably failed. That was the reason why people like Doris are against the allians.

    I am happy all oromos are suporting the alliance. It is smart move. Habesha’s system is an existential threat to all of us, the Allaiance partiners. This is a new move. Time is imortant. We got to be patient. We oromos have responsibility to lead this alliance. Long live PAFD

    PAFD is a bogus, it is a fiction created by Daawuud Ibsa. No Oromo nationalists will ever support this dangerous anti Oromo national liberation struggle. Let death be to it. Let the humiliation to those crying to support it. Oromia will soon be independent with the blood of its sons and daughters. The quislings within Oromo society will be crushed in humiliation.

  27. Kijiibdota tana October 24, 2015 at 5:35 pm #

    if the AFD did not succeed in 2005, then why anyone would think this one would succeed? All this liberation front were present during the 2005 Alliance for Freedom and Democracy (AFD), and the only disagreement among the supporters were the presence of CUD, if they really wanted to work hard then why they simply did not kick the CUD out and move forward then? In my opinion an alliance formed among strong liberation fronts that has teeth to bite the enemy and had a track record that shows their strength might actually succeed and achieve what they set out to active. However, bunch of weak fronts that does not even have popular support among their respective ethnic groups might not have both the means and strength to achieve the desired goal.

    The picture itself is telling because taking too many pictures and holding hands with out any visible victory on the ground, they are only showing their desperation that reveals their weakness from the get go. Any alliance that any group can make should be out of strength, and I am afraid all these groups are weak and had never done their home work to even rally their respective supporters which make them even more weaker in a long run. This looks like and sounds like the same old alliance that had come and gone over the years and this one is no diffrent. The enemy is not stupid and smarter than this groups and i would not be surprised if TPLF has not already implanted its agent in this alliance. All I can say is nice try and good luck!

If you are really oromo express yourself honestly which oromo organization you suport. I suport the GRAND OLF. I am saying GRAND only to be specific. Unless you do this you will be considerd an out sider.

  29. Obsee Daallo October 24, 2015 at 7:28 pm #

    This bizarre alliance is another attempt to destroy the OLF which has been underway for many years. It is Isayas Afeworki and the TPLF’s project to stifle the Oromo national struggle by using Dawud Ibsa and the Lata brothers who are willing to do the job. It is now 18 years since Dawud Ibsa became “chairman” of the OLF, one can ask why the OLF, the strongest armed resistance organization dwindled to the level of nothingness. The answer is clear to those who understand the meaning of national struggle. In the name of alliance with oppressed people, Dawud and the company are defending the Abyssinian empire from crumbling. This time, he is fooling himself not the Oromo people, thanks to the conscious and dedicated Oromos, who are marching towards the set Oromo goal will never be stopped. Anyway, this is another bite by adopted child and Oromos must learn how to heal this wound and march forward till freedom. Oromiyaa shall be free!

    Ob/Ade Kijiibdota tana,
    You said well. These are collections of Habasha agents that get together. Those who entered into this infamous agreement and signed it are the known quislings within the OLF. Their main purpose is and as always has been to mislead the public. But the Oromo public is smarter they are.

    PAFD is the instrument of Habasha. All of them are refugees. And have never set their feet in their respective countries since the last twenty years. All of them are old near to death; that is naturally death. They are now begging the TPLF to allow them to go the empire they love and die there. They have a mission. The mission is to kill the Oromo national liberation struggle for independence.

    It is time for the Oromo nationalists to rise up and fight this bogus “organization”-PAFD. It is the enemy of the Oromo people, the Oromo national liberation struggle, the OLF and the unity of the Oromo nationalists. Rise up all the true Oromo nationalist organizations.

    Death to PAFD.
    Long live the true OLF!
    Oromia shall be free!

    @ Hirphaa, Guyyaan Har’a, Kijibdoota tana,..and the likes

    The more we make a progress , the louder our enemies cry. That is what we are observing here. Either the habesha nafxanyas or woyyanees or the Gantuu Oromos the day of your death is just coming up. So it’s not a miracle if you cry and bark loudly before you die and graved. However, no any force tackles the track of struggle for freedom led by OLF for a single microsecond. In addition to 40 million Oromos , whenever we are forming an alliance with those oppressed peoples like us, we are adding more than 20 more millions to our struggle fo equal and similar benefits. So please those who are lost GANTUU, GALTUU, HINAAFTUU, GOOMATTUUs keep quiet. Here after blaming OLF doesn’t work, You are already dropped down nobody pikes you up. If you call up on unity hundred times nobody listens you. The time is over. I may recommend you one more chance, let you go and ask Abbadula Gammada, Junadin Saddo and Juwar Mohammed to be a member of OPDO. They may help you from your depression.

    Alliance = Politics of the day, although I don’t have the status of other liberation movements, I think OLF is buying this agenda just to appease his narcolepsy and to fool its backward cadres. I see Ato Doudi having deep hibernation of the years to come using this as pretext of his apparent mission. Rabbii Hinraftu!!!

    I SUPORT 100% the grand ABO. Let this be clear to the Galtus (OFD) Like Lencho Group.
    The Gantus (jijjiramaa) like Kamal Galchu.
    The Left out (the name less) like Mulugeta mosi.

    If this group really have a gut let they say on the first line of their comment whom they suport. If they don’t have confidence in themselves how they can criticize OLF? They know they are loosers. Then they don’t have the right to confuse us. Unless any individual tell us who he suports we don’t give a shit for his/her jotting.

    This damn person called Abdii doesn’t have any clue about the division of responsibility in a political organization. You damn let me educate you. Forming an Allaiance with another organization or countries is an exclusive responsibility of an excutive office, that you call (KHR). so today we have people like you, mulugeta mosisa and others who are really, really illitrate in politics. Once upon a time in the 1960s these oldies were acting like true scholars. They think they know everything. They don’t read, they don’t update themselves.

    If you agree with what the OLF under our Leader, DAWUD IBSA, the true son of OROMO and DHUGASAA BAKAKKOO also another true son of Oromo and the field commander, you can stay and contribute with your ability and resources. Otherwise don’t waste your time with us. We don’t need you. Oromos can do their own affairs by themselves. We don’t care about the dead fish.Shut your dirty mouth and leave the space.

    Death to THE LEFTOUTS, THE OPORTUNISTS AND THE ENEMIES WITHIN.

    Rejecting forming alliance among the oppressed people will not garner much support. Forming alliance with organizations having similar political goals is commendable and hence will surely attract more support than those who oppose forming the alliance. Yet, individuals dedicated to settling the old score won’t stop opposing anything others do. If the alliance start bearing fruit, they will be left in the cold with no public support. Success of the alliance matters!! Focus on implementing the alliance goals step by step to prove naysayers wrong. Start with people-to-people and communities interactions. Build sustainable trust among alliance forming people.

No more unsuspected crowed will follow you. This time you are alone. You can’t confuse no more.The struggle ship is cruising while you and like you are departing at each station but more and more boarding. My simple advice for your group is “Do not try what you can’t change just adjust to it”.

      Mr. Gollicha,

      You are right. The problem is not only in Oslo, it is every where. those who have been working for TPLF?OPDO are becoming the hero and nationalists after they have been purged out by TPLF or after they come out of Oromia/Ethiopia, on scholarships/work. They are easily entering the liberation camp in the diaspora and becoming crucial OLF members simply because they are from one village with the people you mentioned above. This is a dangerous practice and step in the liberation movement and does not work in a large population like Oromo. It rather dwarfs the liberation struggle. A person should not be given a free pass simply because he/she is from a village where leaders of OLF come from.

  44. Girma Hagos October 25, 2015 at 7:58 am #

    PAFD is the alliance of flies against the alliance of bees represented by children of pure Ethiopians i.e Tigreans and Amahara. Even if this alliance is against the unity of Ethiopia, it will remain on paper because, the unity of flies cant face the unity of bees. Those who are for Ethiopian unity must fight this alliance with vigor.

    Congratulations and best wishes to the alliance as a group and all component party members. Well done for coming together to fight the common nemesis.

    As Oromia is the pivotal country to these nations geographically, so is the role of OLF politically to those liberation fronts. Although I don’t presume to advice the OLF, for what it worth I would like to say, our leaders, i.e. the leadership of the OLF and their counsels, have to match and surpass the Habeshas in statecraft. For few of us who don’t know what “statecraft” means, it means statesmanship & the skilful management of state affairs. I know our leaders don’t run state, but the job is the same as if they were running a country. The Abyssinians are canny in destabilizing their adversaries by sending their spies. Correspondingly, our leaders have to be astute and must outfox the Habeshas in all aspect.

    To those of us who are interminably whinging and whining about the OLF, special about personalities at the helm, such as Ob. Dawud Ibsa, please just drop it, it isn’t working for you. Because, other than bellyaching and grumbling you have no realistic alternative acceptable to Oromo populace. You also don’t appreciate the implication of what you are saying. For, the inference and corollary of what you saying is that these individuals you are complaining about are so shrewd and tough they outmanoeuvre and crash every opponent into smithereens and get away with everything they want because they are politically genius. That is what you are saying. So, in your own way, you are complimenting them and paying tribute to their work. This fixation & obsession with the criticism of the OLF & its leaders is just futile exercise. So do something else with your lives.

    Best wishes for the Alliance.

  53. Hirphaa October 25, 2015 at 5:40 pm #

    Those who support PAFD are Oromo in blood but Habashaas in political ideology and social upbringing. death to you all. You congratulate the Habsha project.

Daawuud Ibsaa is an agent of Habasha. Isayas Afewoki is his master. You his supporters, you goal is to kill the OLF. Death to you all.

    if this is true alliance that could benefit the people then it should have been alliance of the people meaning from bottom up not top down. In addition, all of these front should have been given some sort of home work as precondition prior to forming alliance. For Instance, the ONLF could have been given an assignment of convincing their fellow Somalis to not make incursion into oromo land and claim as their land by evicting oromo pastoralist and framers forcefully. If we look at what Somalis are doing today to innecent oromians one can see that they are collaborating with TPLF and committing crime against the oromos from the Estern oromiya all the way to the south and south west.

    Benishangul and gumuz are doing similar act against the oromo people, and so are the Sidamas to some extent. Any true and genuine alliance could have addressed al this issues and could have educated their respective ethnic group that they should live in peace side by side and cooperate and form alliance against the enemy instead of fighting against each other. When all this issues are being not addressed and oromos are being killed and driven out of their ancestral land by some of the same ethnic groups we are forming alliance with, then one could wonder if this alliance is really genuine or driven by out side forces to fulfill their own political agenda.

    In addition to both TPLF and Eritrea being driving this sham alliance, I think there is another angle to this when it comes to the Shanne faction. I believe shanne faction is purposely and intentionally diverting attention from the qubee generation that taking the matter onto their own hand after waiting for OLF for over 20+ years. Today as we speak the qubee generation is dying on the street of oromiyaa every day for the right of their people. The mass especially the qubee generation has come to realization that there is no one out there to wait on and assumed the leadership role to move oromo national liberation movement forward.

    This mass movement and agitation by qubee generation has made the shanne faction jealous as they are becoming irrelevant when it comes to oromo national liberation movement. So, instead of finding remedy to their failure and short coming, the shanne faction once again chose to alliance with fronts that are even weaker than themselves to fulfill the political agenda of Eritrea and TPLF. If they wanted to form meaningful alliance then they could have done it back in 2005 by simply kicking the CUD out and coming together by resolving their differences and educating their respective ethnic groups on the ground not to attack each other and especially stopping Somalis from claiming oromo land.

    Genuine alliance always start at the grass root and never from top down, unless of-course the few oldies at the top want some financial and political gain. In my opinion, a true alliance that forms at the grass root level by solving the current problem of inter ethnic fighting and land grabbing is a good alliance that should be supported by all stack holders. However, an alliance that put together by Eritrea and TPLF between the groups that does not even see eye to eye on the ground is simply an alliance formed to destroy oromo national liberation movement and add more agony and pain to already devastated nation like ours the oromo nation (biyaa oromo).

    to All the government of EThiopia and its great people have passed a decree today.
    Ethiopia have got snake children that try to bit their own mother, she has a big and forgiving heart. Ethiopia believes that these snake poisonous children of hers deserve to be gun down and executed immediately. But after thorough investigation and pains taking research it was found that the crazy talking and conspiring is actually because of foreign elements drugging her children with pills that resulted to this an imaginable mad thinking and action. It was found that this is the work of Egypt Secret service. To detox her children from this drug Ethiopia has established three rehab centers one in the great region of Ogaden, in Addiss and South. She calls up on all Ethiopia to capture these mad lunatic children of hers and bring them the rehab center. Unfortunately Ethiopia will not allow any one to wonder around and cause some damage. It takes only individual lone person to do damage. As a result those who refuse to come to the rehab should be shot at the spot …. for details of the decree please contact the prim ministers communication minister.

    Death to the ENEMY OF ETHIOPIA.

  61. To senayt the Cockroach October 26, 2015 at 12:59 pm #

    Madame Coakroach/ woizero Bereero !
    (I don’t mind if you are a man or a woman)
    I am just interested in your monotonous croaking cockroach’s language
    “Iregna” ….. bizzzzz…. !
    It is in your nature, you are doomed to live and die with it.
    Before going into details lets set things orderly first.
    To start with;
    • Ethiopia is not an industrial country, but a backward poor agrarian large village, where farmers and pastoralists economic contribution accounts for more than 90% BIP (forget the beggars’ double digit growth idiotic comedy.)
    Agriculture and domestic animals are the pillars of the country’s economy. In the absence of these vital resources, the already ‘Utopianized ‘cursed country would end up merely becoming a UFO phenomenon.

    • Meat, butter and milk production WORK a valuable professional business. “Iregnas” or any other professional person that works and produces wealth is worthy of respect.

    • Anyone who hates hardworking , worst case, and on the top of that, but depends on the wealth others produced is a harmful parasite. Parasites are noxious pests. Parasites the biggest obstacles to development.

    • A person behind the computer screen under the designation ‘Senayt’ suffers under an inadequate formal education and the least elementary knowledge of ethics.

    • Bereero Senayt acts as if she were a truly locust coming from the far North, though she is in reality a usual loathsome dirty cockroach. Nonetheless, if people on this forum respond to her horrible diatribes taking it for granted she is a locust, it is ok, because she acts so as if she were a locust.

    Woizero Bereero Senayt,
    You always try to disguise as a locust, but your natural typical characteristic behavior betrays you miserably.
    You boring cockroach !
    It is too hard to get rid of your from Oromo homes. You hide yourself under all sorts of dirts under the household objects. You persist even against the use of heavy doses of pesticides like the DDT, caustic soda, sulfuric acid, etc.
    In comparison to cockroaches, it would be much easier to eradicate the swarm of locusts that has invaded us since the year 1991. Locusts are habitually seasonal. They invade a region, destroy everything that comes in their way, including plants, pastoral grass plains and any vegetation and then clear off finally. They are gone.
    Well, they too have destroyed our thick rain forests and natural ecology. The consequence are devastating. Our people in Hararge, Arsi and parts of Bale have fallen victims of imported famine from the North by the this toxic locusts. Fertile farm lands and large forest areas are mercilessly sold out to private or corporate financial oligarchies.
    The toxic locusts from the North brought famine and poverty up on our hard working gentle people.

    Woizero Bereero,
    When you tirelessly throw your ‘Iregna’ senseless slur we ignored you, simply because we misunderstood it as a harmless common slander, but not a deliberate insult (in your instinct) directed at an individual person. But, I finally realized that your croaking insect language targets the whole Oromian nation.
    I remember sometimes ago reading an article written in Amarigna published on Ayyantu Website in response to the abused term ‘Iregna’ used by two diehard coakroach Nafxanya ideologues. One of them, I think, was a retired Finfinne (Addis) University lecturer by the name Getachew Haile set out to denigrate the hardworking Nation of Oromians. These old arch Nafxagna anti-democrats still believe that (contrary to the pitiless Shabias or Woyanes) the Oromo Nation is naive, does not kill people, not even the predator Nafxanya-Amaras.
    But history testifies otherwise. During the fascist Italian invasion of Ethiopia at the Adwa battle field, it was the courageous horse riding Oromo fighters that broke into the first enemy frontiers paving the way for a devastating victory. You may ask the Italian historians for verification. We are kind, but we are also passionate fighters of Gada society.
    That means, your repeated ‘Iregna’ blabbering misconduct is not what so many people mistook for petty delinquency, but instead, it is a serious political statement. You are mimicking your old arch pro-nafxnyas like Getachew Haile and his peers. You wanted to attack the entire 40 million Oromian people.
    Herewith, I assure you right away, that we are very proud of being ‘Iregnas’.
    For it means:
    • We produce FOOD.
    • We have something to offer.
    • We are independent, self-reliant, rich people.
    It means the generous ‘Iregnas’ produce meat, butter and milk that repairs and polishes the pest infested dry stomachs of the desperately poor migrants from the North.
    It means that we are the diligent proud people of the Gada egalitarian society. We are hardworking people; we care too much for nature and environment.

    We are tolerant too. But our tolerance and patience in the face of the permanently aggressive pests from the North is not unlimited. God willing we shall totally disinfect our environment and then build a new prosperous Oromoland.
    It is only a matter of time. I am 100% confident we shall completely eradicate, not only the contaminant infection carrier swarm of locusts that brought upon us their traditional famine, but also the persisting cockroaches.
    is only a matter of time. I am 100% confident we shall completely eradicate, not only the contaminant infection carrier swarm of locusts that brought upon us their traditional famine, but also the persisting cockroaches.

    Something is wrong with individuals who pray for the death of PAFD. If correctly implemented, PAFD will benefit all the oppressed people in Ethiopia, including Oromos. I hope Oromo media will extend contacts with alliance members, particularly non-Oromo members so that their voices will reach Ethiopia and the migrants in diaspora. No alternative to alliance of oppressed people!

      DDW,

      I did not read the post you entered. There are over 70 posts, which makes it difficult to read all of them. Yet, even after reading the comment posted by nameless and faceless individuals, who hide behind pen-names, taking their post at face value is at least irrational for several reasons.

      1. The post of the alliance, with real names with real people behind it, is much more reliable than comments by nameless and faceless people who hide behind pen-names. If the individuals who reject the alliance formation have the truth, they should come out with their real names and real voices. There is no shortage of media avenues in today’s tech world to argue their points against alliance formation with justifications and alternative scenarios. Until then, I don’t take the posts of faceless and nameless people at face value, let alone as reliable perspective guidance.

      2. If it is true that they have justified reasons to reject the alliance, the prominent individuals posted by nameless and faceless individuals should come out and argue their points in public to be accepted. Their names can be abused and misused by reckless individuals. In short, we need to hear from them why they are against the formation of the alliance of the oppressed people.

      3. Personally, I prefer to adhere to and follow principles much more than prominent individuals. As a matter of principle, I won’t follow or appreciate individuals rejecting alliance formation. And it does not matter whether the rejection is done by prominent or less prominent individuals. If the issue is not rejecting forming alliance but the processes and methods of the alliance or who are embodied in the alliance formation, I am all ears to hear out all sides using their real names and real voices. Again, I have no trust of faceless and nameless individuals using weird pen-names.

      Dhugaa Dhagayu Wayya – Since you mentioned none participation of some people you should also mention why they did not participate in on going discussion. Form what I know at lis a person who posted this message on Abo net, himself was a person who could not participate for a discussion on this top as a leader because he has to go to California to see his daughter or something. So, what do you expect people to do?
      Suspend every thing because his highness has to go for his personal pleasure? I hope OLF kick this kind of reactionary and do nothings.

    Ob./Ade Dhugaa Dhagahuu Wayya:

    Thank you for this information. As it is said, information is power. These people do not want to read information because they are the committed enemy of the OLF and the Oromo people.

    These people who are supporting this infamous PAFD are those ignorant who cannot read and write. These are the quislings/gantuus who have received the Oromo land from the colonialist Habasha bandit of the Ethiopian empire that occupied Oromia. They are profiteers on the blood of the Oromo people. They are ‘bulguus’. These groups have build houses on the Oromo land digging up the Oromo’s bones from the ground up. These mad men and women who support PAFD knew once Oromia is liberated, they will go to jail as a collaborators of the enemy and the land given to them by the fascist Tigrean regime of TPLF will be confiscated and taken away from them.

    These are the internal enemies of the Oromo people and their struggle for national independence. They have been collaborating with the enemy of the Oromo people-the TPLF in land dispossession, expropriation and exploitation of Oromia. Yesterday, they formed AFD and today PAFD.

    Death to them all!
    Death to PAFD!
    Oromia shall be free!
    Long live the OLF!

    The LEFT- OUT group of Mulugeta Mosisa, stop confusing yourself. You are dead wrong now on the Allaiance issue. There is no substance in your oposition. Dr. Mekuria Bulsha and Mr. Teha Abdi’s presence or non presence doesn’t justity anything. It is mainly the prerogative of the foreign office of OLF that deals with this kind of work. Our ligitmate representive, Mr. Tolera Adebaa was there and he is the one who signed the document.

    Selfdetermination starts from home. If you agree with OLF stay with the organization. Otherwise decide for yourself. We fully suport the Allaiance and work hard with the member organizations. Any body who doesn’t agree with this can immediately resign. No more drama. “KARAA DUGDA HANDAAQOO ISINIF HAAGODHU” !!

    National issues cannot be decided by rumor-mills, who hide behind pen-names. If they are supposedly defending an organization and a national cause, they should come out with their real names and real voices in media outlets. Then an honest discussion can be carried out on the issue of the alliance. If they are holders of the truth and uphold the utmost benefit for OLF and the Oromo nation, let they get counted as real persons with real objectives, substantiated with real arguments.

    Ato Barii,
    You are a nafxanyaa breed. You a fool human being. You insult one of the Oromo’s greatest hero, Mulegata Mosisa. He paid his due to the Oromo struggle. He is one of the founder of the OLF. He wasTortured in the Derg’s torture chamber. Not only him but also wife was tortured. You coward. You gantuu; you afafa. The Oromia independence will come by the struggle of the sons and daughters of Oromia in Oromia; not by the refugees from Asmara. You are shallow in understanding this.

    Death to you gantuus!
    Death to PAFD!

    Oromia shall be free!
    Long live the OLF!

    • Barii October 27, 2015 at 5:25 pm #

      Hirphaa,

      Just for clarity, this Barii did not insult Obbo Mulugeta Mossissa. There are several individuals who use the pen-name Barii on this website. One of them did it. And that’s problem of relying on pen-names. Actually, Obbo Mulugeta is courageous for openly expressing his views with his real name.

  74. Tufaa October 27, 2015 at 8:05 am #

    A lot angry posts. Do the critics reject the principle of forming alliance or who is leading the OLF in the alliance formation? I think it is the second one. It sounds like the usual noises the weakened faction elements make . It’s also noise coming from those who Left OLF and formed a new party. Rejecting the alliance principle is ridiculous.

  75. Now & then October 27, 2015 at 9:44 am #

    The difference is, the time has changed. THE LEFT – OUTS like obbo mulugeta think they are the only one who can decide the fate of the oromo nation. That was then this is now. New generation. New thinking mind. The mulugeta’s cohorts are now aproaching 70s. Many of them are still active in encouraging the the struggle by advising the the struggle to the new generation. God bless them. They have kept the good faith and we are proud of them. Among those kind of super heroe oromos I would like to mention OBBO EBSAA GUTAMAA. We count many of them. Obbo Ibsaa Gutamaa is still a grate advocate of free oromia.

    It is now the time when oromos have openly and officially diceded to defend OLF and its leadership unabashedly. The enemy kows very well and being advised by its foreign counsels how to distroy an orgaization by distroyong or targeting the leadership. Few of our people have been trapped by this scheme. And the impact of over 100 years psychological warfare against us also can’t be understimated. Many have suffered from an inferiority comlex as a result of it. Any how that was then now it is diferent. New generation, orderly generation and orgaized generation. It is of the past thiking when one crazy person like Mr.,Dr., and Obbo ———–can wake up one morning feeling bad and wrting few lines on social media and attack an organization or its leader so that he take over the leadership. That is of the past. It takes a long years to organize , we will not allow any more for an egoistic few individuals to do that to our organization. We have been there done that. No more. Enough is enough. Hands off our leadership.

    Left-outs are not new. We know them one by one. They are few. They go no where. “Sogidi ofii jedhii mi’a’yii jedhama mitiiree ?

    We see here and there on this blog some people adamantly opposing the formation of PAFD for different reasons (I think).

    Some of them may be the purged former members of Oromo political parties. The rest are from the enemy camp and logically the formation of an allied front against Woyane’s tyrannical rule does not please them. They are scared. They feel they would be punished for their savage atrocities and resource looting crimes when the D-day comes.
    In reality there is nothing wrong to form an alliance with people of the same ideological back ground and common colonial history. Of course, ‘Alliance’ does not mean that the allied member parties give up their original political programs. They are independent entities as before, but shall cooperate and help each other against the enemy’s brutal aggressions directed at their respective peoples.

    When the Dictator Adolph Hitler threatened the lives and wellbeing of Europeans, the normally antagonistic communist camp lead by Stalin of USSR and the Western powers formed an allied power against the brutal regime. Ultimately, they defeated the fascist Nazi ruler and peace and democracy was restored in Europe.

    An alliance against dictators is necessary and should be supported by everyone endowed with a common sense.

    @Now & then,

    I don’t think people like Obbo Mulugeeta who are tested in a long struggle would care about your rude language.

    However, I have read Obbo Mulugeta’s commentary without tracing a word opposes the Alliance. Can you please point out to me just a sentence that says Oromo or OLF Alliance with these organizations and their respective peoples is not wanted. Let us be clear on this Before jumping into name calling. You know name calling is a sign of utter ignorance or moral weakness. Don’t you agree with me?

    For those who believe in decolonization of the Abyssinian Hegemony; making alliance with the same and similiar objective, wether it is strong or weak in the long run guarantee victory and mass support. It is well done. It is schoking for Abbyssinians ,look how Abyysinian dogs and donkeys bark and bray one after the other.It is irritating for those Oromos who think the alliance is fail from the start comparing with AFD.Considering the composition of the alliance ,they represented majortiy Cushitic population.If they work hard with their diasopara population and International community I hope they will soon register results and confidence.The wave of interantional power balance shift favours for those who work hard with wisdom to exploit ,this will pressurize the Abyssinians come to negotiation table or to face the worst just like Syrian’s Bashar and opposition.The Cushitic alliance as Bashar and syran opposition as Abyssinian minorty ellites government. The cushitic terrtorial and population is larger,with these potential the super powers of the world can easly side with them to combat those who boasts we are equipped and with large army.Those who try to reduce Cushitic Alliance to G5; They are mistaken,G7 is only one party with diffrent objective.They are for self-determination and democratization while G7 mainly to Democratize through Abyssinian Democracy. The Abyssinian democracy and CUSHITIC Democracy are diametrically opposite.Cushitic democracy struggles to decolonize While Abyysinian democrarcy is to maintain/ repair colonization. Both the Abyysinan opposition and Cushitic organized alliance should bear in mind; they have one common enemy,that common enemy is the challenge of the day.

    Accepting everything at its face value with out thorough scrutiny is a political suicide that we have seen over the past 24 years. Just because couples of weak fronts that lack what it takes to confront the enemy come together and take bunch of pictures, deos not mean the victory over the TPLF is at hand. It’s hard to believe those front that had been hibernating over so many years with out any visible action against the enemy can now all of a sudden grow some teeth over night and secure victory. Alliance out of strength is good alliance as long as it begin on the ground among all those communities from bottom up.

    But this type of alliance that hastily put together (from top down) by the same people who have done similar alliance in the past and failed always face resistance for good obvious reasons. No one with their right mind hate an alliance that formed on solid ground and meant for good intentions (unless they are in the camp of the enemy). An intention that benefits all stack holders with out any hidden agenda. This alliance is very suspicious from the get go because it shows the same faces as previous and also lack support necessary for its success. Appropriate due diligence has not be done and its pros and cans had never been explained.

    It looks like it has been put together by third force (Abyssinians) for some sinister reasons and does not look genuine and clean. I personally would be very happy if it succeeds, but from what i have read and seen thus far, all indication points to other hidden hand behind it. For those who are in celebratory mood, go right a head and celebrate, but please be cautious as your happiness and joy could all of a sudden turn into sadness and disappointment (unless of course we are already used to disappointments and don’t mind another one).

    @Hirpha,are you really for the democrtaic republic of Oromia,are you really for strong Cushitic peoples cooperation or Alliance; are really for the benefits and national interest of Oromo people? or are you an A byssinian who cries foul day and night not to see any thing better for Oromo and cushitic people even to the Abyssianian people? you started with shower of insults and ended with shower of cursing. you accused that allaince’s name is changed from AFD TO PAFD;yes the name is changed it is true but the member organizations are changed.what is wrong with it?what is wrong is not PAFD, but in capblity of Oromo leaders no to solve their internal problems as politicians. Before trying to make alliance with brotherly and sisterly nations; it woud have been better to settle your own house indorder. Some of you tried to accuse not consulting the members, ranks and files. let me give you one example of ANC historical victory case ; Highly respected N.Mandela conducted his secretive negotions with Pretorian Apartheid government Key offcials privately.He informed the ANC when he was quiet sure to isolate apatheid leader and penetrated the security,justice and other important offices of the government. By doing that he was victorious and no one blamed him. There were divsions in ANC and Pan African congress in waging struggle against Apartheid. Panafrican Congress fought for black africans to be masters of their home land.ANC fought for all black , whites and coloreds. In thier diffrences they brought African struggle to the world stage. In our cases when we have more competent and capable men and women ,ended with laughing stocks.Our leaders and their followers have no respects for each other and their people. If they dont respecct each who will respect them,if they despise each other we will despise and hate them,the enemy will more humiltae them and despise them.when QC was formed , I expected better miltary preparations and improved quality of our struggle,when the General run from the enemy side and joined OLF we expected miracles but we are ashamed of the mess in struggle camp. still we are in a mess.when can leaders , supporters and followers can understand each other, still we are in mess.The enemy is in mess, we are in mess, the people are in mess,everyone, everything in mess. when some one shouts from outside shanee in Asmara did this did that, the other from another corner shouts “gantus”,not finished shouting the other repeats from the other side “Galtus” did that ,did this. go hell all of us/ you. Those peoples like you crying innocently or purposely to deteriorate the deteriorated situation. The human beasts are in your sleeping room when you are barking and braying to each other. The beast that enter your sleeping room will vorasciouly munch you so you must die or kill him,the beast has no language to deal with. stop cryin and cursing, find the middle ground to deal with your brothers and sisters.I responded because you are innocently or purposly cryin and cursing.no offence

    I have been writing comments on some articles always in different names. However, I never used the names of those who already posted comments. To give some ground about myself, I grew up in Finfine starting from 2 years of age. My mother told me that I was given a fanatical Amhara names by an Oromo ‘Wukabi’ man by her own request and it was given in a ceremony known as ‘Hamechisa’. In addition to this, although my father’s mother and his father were Oromos, he too was given a typical Amhara name.

    Thus I grew up being considered a fanatic Amhara although it has its own side effects at times. On the contrary, in a city where speaking Oromifa was considered backwardness, my parents and their relatives used to communicate mostly in Oromifa and as a result we used to be called the Gallas in the village we lived. Thus I and my brother and sisters too were able to hear and speak the language. I accepted the name Galla to mean another name for Oromo. I thank for the recent enlightenment I got from a comment on the meaning of Galla which means “Get in”.

    After such brief introduction about myself, I want to embark on my comment on the PAFD alliance. Let us briefly see who OLF and whom it represents. No one denies that the history OLF is related to the Western Oromo area educated individuals. If I am wrong anyone can correct me. I think it builds for the Oromo society, if it knows the composition of the current OLF leadership and members. How much are there from Eastern, Southern and central Oromia. Is OLF really representative of the Oromo society?

    Why was that the organization is so secretive? Is it lack of confidence ? Or Is it because it is aspiring to bring freedom for the Oromos by expelling their enemies at one night just as Eritrea did? Is it feasible with bundle western money or careful planning. How about the latter chaos? Let us see the Eritrean and the Oromos society’s situation. The Eritreans never had so much eavesdroppers dispersed inside their farmlands because the system of land ownership never allowed them. Thus It was simple for Shabia to easily control and expel those military, businessmen and government who were found accumulated in few areas. I think the problem with OLF is to expect to bring freedom through this copy past form. For how long should OLF leadership continue messing the Oromo society, where it moves have repeatedly blind than calculated. Whatever name it bore previously, this is the third blunder that it is going to commit in the history of this society.

    Let us see one of its acclaimed professor who is residing among such developed society. Does he really know what the meaning of theory means (I.e. unproved facts). In today’s world where computers are even working in logic (computation) our theorist is working with dialectics, may be he has not forgotten his background as a cadre. Let us be sensible and give sense for what we say and write. It is shameful for the rest of us but a real intellectual for those who believe in friendship and regions among Oromos

    In brief, the OLF moves are spontaneous than calculated. It is rather possible to meet ones ends by carefully planning and promulgating the right law and directives ones the enemy defeated. For instance, the move made by Woyane to remove its rival Eritreans legally was much more effective than the move made by OLF with the support/ guidance of such individuals as Tamerat Layene. Any organization that claims to fight for its society’s freedom has to be smart than arrogant and foolish. A smart fighter never involve in unnecessary confrontation even with his enemies let alone with his own society.

    If OLF is to be accepted as an Oromo organization:
    – The leadership and composition of the members should be changed to embrace all the Oromo society.
    – It’s struggle should be meticulously planned than acting haphazardly. It has to make a calculated move than being guided by its own enemies.
    – Any move to disband or expel eavesdroppers should be planned carefully and in a legalized way. For instance if a need arise to make changes in big cities of the country, the chaos that may arise compared to dispersed farmlands can not be the same . So let us stop copy cut.
