Advocates of non-violent direct action and land rights need to seriously step up their public support of #OromoProtests starting now. The scope and creativity of the actions keeps being described as unprecedented. Their commitment to these principled protests despite arrests, kidnappings, intimidation of families, expulsions, beatings, and more is incredibly inspiring.
