Statement of Demonstration in favor of The National Transitional Government of Oromia Region!

World-International 39 Movement Support Team,
 
As known by the Citizens of Oromia and Citizens of the World, because of the political crisis shaking Ethiopia, existence and life of the Citizens are under threat. Specially, Oromia became a war zone and we have lost so many lives and lots of properties were destructed. Before solving the political and security problems, the government with a political power has finished its office term and we have seen him trying to elongate his term. The hoped free and democratic election expected to fulfill interests of the people became empty, every political move is restricted, and he had tried to monopolize the power extending the term unlawfully. In this situation, imprisonment of the Leaders, Officers and Members of the political parties, has fully closed the door towards free and fair election.
 
This is the time in which this country has no legitimate and constitutional government. In the absence of the government, existence of the Citizens shall be under threat. We have been observing the same. Having secured the Citizens of Oromia, moving towards fair election, and to elect their own government, sustainable peace and stability are necessary. The country is in deep challenges of politics, specially in Oromia, where always there is a turmoil, in order to bring a sustainable peace and get the people prepared for election, establishment of the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region became vital.
 
Establishment of the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region is needed for that:
– The country isn’t being administered by a common government of the wider public. This means: when a single group wants to extend its term of office/power unlawfully by transgressing the constitution of the country; those who are seeking justice and struggling for the liberation of the people stands with the People. In line with the rights to the Self Determination of their people, Tigrai Regional State has conducted election respecting the rights for self determination of the people and they achieved establishing their own parliament. Besides, they have strengthened their power and currently, they are not in a position to accept pressure from any one. As well, appointed members serving at Federal level are also ordered by the TPLF to quit their work and leave. They are protecting their sovereignty and on the way to build their own sovereign country. And we hope this shall be the best example to indicate that this government is not our common government.
 
– A political group having the Federal Government on hand, encouraging a given group, had worked and has been working to eliminate nationalism and breaking the human rights of the Citizens of Oromia. Oromia encompasses many Nations and Nationalities, and it has an all inclusive, diverse religion and culture of cohabitation. A group that has controlled power in the name of Unity became a primary threat for the existence of Oromo and the Citizens of Oromia. Therefore, building the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region, to rescue the Citizens of Oromia, became inevitable.
 
Huge destruction is already pointed on Oromia. Territories of Oromia are being crossed from different directions and the land of Oromia is being occupied by others. This was continuously done for a long period and has never ended, even aggravated. But, it has put lives of the Citizens of Oromia under a threat. In order to finalize those acts of illegal crossing boundaries and occupying the Land of Oromia, a Mutual National Transitional Government of Oromia Region should be established; and thereby gaining peace and security is very important.
If Oromia become a battle ground, not only Citizens of Oromia, the Oromo People and the Horn of Africa; the Nations and Nationalities, shall also be under threat. We believe that, specially: the International Communities like Diplomats of various countries, African Union, European Union and those who are interested and residing in Finfinne (Addis Ababa) – Oromia; should give due attention for the National Transitional Government of Oromia, in order to peacefully get their interest from Addis Ababa and Oromia.
 
Thus, if the concerned bodies do not give due attention for peace, the feared problems would distort the globally hoped peace. Hence, in order to solve this political crisis, we are left with the only choice of: Establishing the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region. In accordance with these difficult and complex conditions, OLF has declared on September 13/2020 and OFC has also released a statement about the necessity of the establishment of the National Transitional Government of Oromia. In the same way, on October 08/2020, Mr. Dawud Ibsa, who is the Chairperson of the OLF, declared a statement to the Citizens of Oromia in, outside and in the neighboring countries.
 
Accordingly, we World- International 39 Movement Support Group has decided to held demonstrations in favor of the establishment of the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region on October 13/2020. For the best attainment of the demonstration, under the World- International 39 Movement Support Group, a Coordinating Committee of Demonstrations in favor of the Establishment of the National Transitional Government of Oromia was structured and has made expected and various moves towards the establishment of the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region.
 
Whereas, establishment of the National Transitional Government of Oromia is crucial to rescue the country having a government power vacuum and thereby save lives; establishment of the National Transitional Government of Oromia is much needed and this demonstration shall be held in support of the same.
Thus, World-International 39 Movement Support Group has decided to held demonstration, in support of the National Transitional Government of Oromia, at every corner of Oromia, on October 13/2013, and a committee structured under the Group, to succeed with the idea was deployed to bear its responsibility in every direction.
The following shall be not only be important and key points required during the demonstration, for the establishment of the National Transitional Government of Oromia, but, they are very influential:
The demonstration shall be held by the entire Citizens of Oromia and shall be very much coordinated.
The demonstration was designed by the World- International 39 Movement Support Group, and declared by the Coordination Committee working for the attainment of the Transitional Period in Oromia Region, in collaboration with the Qeerroo National Youth Movement Structure, Civic Associations, Aba Gedas and Religious Fathers.
 
On this demonstration, Citizens of Oromia shall send a message to the government with an expired office term, stating: “Hereinafter, we shall build our own government; your term of administration/office is over”.
Since the term of power/office of the government ended, until fair election shall be held, we have to ensure the Citizens of Oromia administered by the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region.
During the demonstration, in relation to the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region, Citizens of Oromia, shall not in any way condemn or insult any body. For that we are building a constitutional Transitional Government, we will show our support for the Establishment of the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region, peacefully and with a good moral standard.
 
Following the fact that there is no one to give order and directions for Peace Keeping forces from now onwards, they should stand with their people and support the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region going to be established. It is important and they are expected to contribute in keeping peace and security of the Citizens of Oromia. Since the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region is collectively established for the Citizens of Oromia; the rights of the Citizens of Oromia shall be respected and the citizens shall take part in the demonstration to be held in favor of the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region.
We will free the political prisoners detained by the then ruling government, give them a welcome and let them to play their role by taking part in the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region.
The slogans we are going to show on the demonstration in support of the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region should not: Transgress the rights of the Citizens of Oromia and it should be all inclusive.
To protect properties of individuals or a country from any destruction, the demonstration should be guarded and the demonstration will be fully peaceful and objective. From now onwards, since all of the properties in the name of the government shall be properties of the Citizens of Oromia, they shall be protected.
 
As there shall be parties opposing the demonstration, we should avoid clashing with them and we are expected to work on making them our partner; and thereby convince these bodies to stand with the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region. Since the demonstration will be held to alienate further political, social and economic crisis, and difficult conditions of the Citizens of Oromia; it shall be free from Ethnic, Religious and Political affiliation discriminations and it will be held by the Citizens of Oromia, together.
To succeed with the demonstration and building of the National Transitional Government of Oromia Region; we hereby invite the following forces.

  1. “From coordination committee,” about Transitional gov’t…
    Well, we also had coordinating committee/diaspora/ about supporting the so called reform,part taking in core issues (language,democracy,freedom & etc).
    Priorities, necessities/essentialities/and safety v/s risks got undermined and individuals’ & some groups’ interests get anxiously attached to immediate, wicked & immatured ticks of completion for names, chairs and advantages; with no real intentions & actions to focuse on potential chronic causes of indispensable ill fates.
    We have to be sure anyone’s of clean hands and minds behind names & letters; about “the coordination, the libration, the negotiation, the demicratization, …” committees.
    What if hidden plan or concieved clue for clashes under the Said committee? Or to cover it relinquish better ways including plans?

    Better-results-oriented-mind need to limit individuals’ & group’s or clique’s wishes & intetests; and more to dare dedication for mass intetests.
    Why instead of for transition & intent to create two fronts in same group by hidden and distant ones, the real and those in the society moves forward, hand in hand with all to actuate full rights/demands/ as in coded rules & mass intetests?

  2. It is my personal opinion, I think there is an oversight of our prevailing political situation. First and foremost, while OLF enjoyed vast political support that would have helped it to win an election, an armed struggle came behind which led to so much suffering of our people. The recent OLF declaration also came without proper preparation which seems a simple copy of the Ghana event. That is the party itself is under internal struggle, be it due to the interference of the government or not. This should have been settled at least by choosing a leadership which is acceptable by all sides. Don’t forget that as there is villagers problem to the extent of throwing insults such as ‘Gobena’ to the very society who is the bridge to East and West Oromia. It is also the way of our treatment to Amharas that is making them more repulsive to our struggle. I think all these problems rest on poor leadership. Let us try to correct the leadership problem and participate in the election, and if the election ends becoming a hoax, then we shall try the other methods.
