Ethiopia: an empire initiated, established and maintained by violence

(A4O, 6 July 2014) Study reveals Ethiopia is an empire initiated, established and maintained by violence targeted against the Oromo and its neighbouring nations.

According to the concluding remarks of researcher Denebo Dekeba, the current government of  Ethiopia has committed despicable crimes against humanity including genocide; arbitrary arrest, torture ,and other inhuman or degrading treatment of people ; economic exclusions and discriminations ; land grabbing and eviction from land; violation of freedom of thought and expression of opinion.

The question remains: How long and what does it take to stop the ruthless  violation of human rights and crimes against humanity committed by the government of Ethiopia? May the international community show solidarity to victims of the crimes against humanity as committed by the government of Ethiopia? If so, what action must be taken by the international community in response to the mounting evidence proving that crimes against humanity are being committed by the government of Ethiopia?

These and other questions concerning the issues of democracy, human rights and rule of law need to be addressed by all actors including researchers, policy makers and, of course, those “democratic” countries providing the government of Ethiopia with financial aid in the face of such appalling crimes against humanity.
