Folks it’s clear the oppression and suffering of our people back in Oromia has completely changed its phase from from the traditional one by one extrajudicial killings to a complete ethnic cleansing phase. We have seen and always lived with low scale killings here and there under this dictatorship regime. But now it’s different it’s entirely different phase, the game is transformed in to an Ethnic cleansing on general Oromo and particularly the youth who are at the risk of extermination.
The amount of energy and initiation to look for solution has to match the level of danger we are in as a nation.Tough moments always call for tougher measures. Albert Anstien said, “You can’t expect different result, by doing the same thing over and over and over again.” “Badiisa hamaa keessa jira, walgahii fi TV fi radio irraa bookkisuu qofaan Ajjeechaa Hamaa fi sukkanneessaa Tigreen Oromo irraan gahaa jirtu dhaabu hin dandeenyu.” Let stop fake and superficial solutions and start looking for real answers. Adios!
