Human rights violation in Guji area of Oromia Regional state, Ethiopia.

(A4O, Finfinnee, 19 April 2019) Advocacy for Oromia, a non-profit advocacy organisation working to ensure that the Oromo people’s rights and wishes are respected, is highly concerned at the intimidation, the violence and the wave of arrests that have taken place during the week end in Oromia.

We are writing this letter to draw attention to gross and disturbing human rights violation in Gujii area, Oromia Regional state where Ethiopian military, regional and zonal administrations are committing grave violation of human rights that include mass killing, incineration of human being, mass detention, burning of villages, confiscation of properties, torture and starvation of villagers in the name of stamping out OLF (Oromo Liberation Front) army from the area.

Hence, on behalf of Guji people who have endured such brutality thus far we hereby beseech all concerned body to heed these grave human rights violation and immediately; call for the cessation of these brutal collective punishment, release all the bread winners of their family from concentration camps, work to restore peace in the area through civilized negotiation with OLF instead of resolving the differences through military means and finally bring those who have committed grave crimes to justice.
