I Stand With #OromoProtests

A few days ago Melbournians Oromo Youth put a call out to Oromo youth in Melbourne to gather in light of the recent protests in Ethiopia.

This is their message.

Oromo youth across the world are responding to the call for solidarity in multiple ways, follow the ‪#‎OromoProtests‬ hashtag on twitter, facebook and instagram for regular updates and news.

The #OromoProtests movement is a truly remarkable act of resistance against the Ethiopian government and its plans to further erase and evict the Oromo people from their land, livelihood and future. It is a movement rejecting imperialist ideals of development and oppressive forms of government. The civilians and students protesting; those reporting and co-ordinating on the ground; those in the diaspora working around the clock to give this movement the attention it 100% deserves are all a testament to how completely done the Oromo people are with Ethiopia’s supremacist governance. The crimes against humanity being committed by the Ethiopian government against these protests is a testament to the long standing truth that those in power are incapable of leading the people of Ethiopia justly. We are bearing witness to a true revolution.

Melbourne, we are planning to hold a solidarity rally on the 3rd of January. Save the date. Event page to be shared soon, more cities to add the list of rallies.
