Oromos seek justice in Ethiopia

(A4O, June 25, 2013) The Oromo people make up about 40 per cent of Ethiopia’s population, yet face widespread discrimination and have long been targeted by the government.

Over many years, millions of Oromos have fled their homeland to become refugees in other nations. The Oromo people are found largely in Ethiopia, northern Kenya and parts of Somalia.

So what should be done to stop the marginalisation of the Oromos and end Ethiopia’s internal ethnic divide?
