I note articles written by many Habesha elites especially related to present intensified Oromo struggle against tyranny in Oromia. To quote a few is that of Prof. Mesfin W/M attempting to rename #OromoProtest or to hijack the objective of the Oromo struggle and the recent article of Seali Amsalu G/K (http://www.mereja.com/amharic/480370) telling us who we are and tries to suggest us as to how we have to lead our struggle. Also, the article of Mr. Admasu B. (http://www.ethiomedia.com/1010ideas/4857.html) with an intension of calling on Habesha to boycott from assisting Oromo’s political struggle. In fact more than this is the majority’s silent position of our fellow Amhara elites and responses of ordinary Habesha citizens at home for the telephone interview as collected by Mr. Admasu B.
The following is crystal clear from Oromo perspectives and for any genuine mind. Oromo was rather under severing political, economic and cultural subjugation during Amhara’s lasted colonial hegemony a consequence of which transferred Oromo to a new colonial minority based TPLF rule. We also note that not few Amahara’s current service (mainly as spy in Oromia and wrong policy advice to further keep Oromo as colonial subject) to the present colonial rule. Despite the fact that you are refreshing worst memory we had with your hegemony, we are only stretching our merciful hands so that you could use the opportunity to show us you regretted for the past evils against us and tend to co-exist with us in the future. If the latter will be your choice, the only option we welcome is that you must stand up against TPLF and clear them from your state. Then we should open dialogue as to how we could build our common country- the greater Oromia (you may call it Ethiopia). In a nutshell, you must decide with whom to align between Oromo and TPLF. Two options are on the table for you to pick one. Not both! And not picking one is also as same as choosing to side TPLF. This is willy-nilly.
The present state of Oromo struggle is that TPLF must go. This strategy is independent of any Habesha’s consent or any kind of help or an attempt to be hindrance.
Needless to tell you that seemingly advice nor tactical approach works not at this era on this issue. Instead try not to full yourself because your today’s credit for the Oromo struggle for freedom of oppressed people in Ethiopian empire will be your tomorrow’s debit to leave with us in free Oromia
