Biyya tokko miseensa Komishini mirga namoomatti filachudhaf ‘The General Assembly takes into account the candidate States’ contribution to the promotion and protection of human rights, as well as their voluntary pledges and commitments in this regard’ kan jedhu dubbisna.Asirratti gaafiin jiru dhuguma Itopiyaan ulagaa kana guuttee filatamtee kan jedhu dha. Akka isheen ulagaa kana hin guutne gochi isheen lammii biyyaa irratti raawwattee fi raawwataa jirtu armaan gadii ifatti mullisa. Kanas qoondalli UN tokko kan jedhan kanaa gadii ni mirkanesa.

The top United Nations human rights official today said she is “seriously alarmed” by the current climate of intimidation against journalists and human rights defenders in Ethiopia due to an overly broad interpretation of laws concerning terrorism and civil society in the country.

“The recent sentencing of 20 Ethiopians, including prominent blogger Eskinder Nega, journalists and opposition figures, under the vague anti-terrorism law has brought into stark focus the precarious situation of journalists, human rights defenders and Government critics in the country,” the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, said in a news release.

Charging journalists and political opposition member with terrorism and treason charges is seriously limiting their legitimate rights to freedom of expression and association, Ms. Pillay noted, and urged the Government to review its legislation, as well as its interpretation and application by the courts.

Mootummaan Itopiya ganna 21 dura guyyaa aangoo qabate irra eegale mirgota ummatoota itopiyaa dhitudhan kan beekamee dha. Kanas dhabbileen mirga namoomatif falman kan akka Human right Watch, Amnesty International, human right league of the horn of Africa (HRLHA) fi Oromia Support Groug ( OSG) , akkasumas mootummaa Amerikaa dhabalatee ibsa yeroo adda addaa irratti basaa turn ni yaadatama. Mootummaan Itopiyaa garuu iyyaa qaamolee kanatif gurra tokkolle utuu hin kennin ammallee gocha dhiibbaa mirgoota namoomaa itti fufee jira.

Haala kananis bara 1991 irraa eegalee hanga harratti yakka sanyii duguuguu ( genocide) ummata Oromoo irratti raawwatera. Kanas imaamata mootummaa godhate akka ta’e kan gaditti dubbifamu irraa hubachuun ni danda’ama.
Stated Government Policy.

Oromo nationalism is perceived as the greatest threat to the ruling government party (the Ethiopian Peoples Revolutionary Democratic Front – EPRDF – an umbrella party, led and dominated by the Tigrean Peoples Liberation Front – TPLF).

According to the EPRDF party journal, Hizbaawi Adera [People’s Custodian], Tahsas, 1989, Ethiopian Calendar [December 1996], ‘To defeat narrow nationalism . . . must be part of our struggle’. ‘In order to have a lasting solution to our problem . . . we have to break narrow nationalist tendencies in Oromia . . . we have to fight narrow nationalism to the bitter end . . . to smash it in a very decisive manner. . . . fighting the higher intellectual and bourgeoisie classes in a very extensive and resolute manner. . . . The standard bearers of narrow nationalism are the educated elite and the bourgeoisie’.

‘[W]e must be in a position to eradicate all narrow nationalists . . .’( quoted from Oromia support group report)

Motummaan Itopiyaa heera biyyatti, Seerota , kovenshinotaa fi protokolota UN eegumsa mirgota namoomaa ( fundamental human rights) ilaalchisanii ifaan taa’an irraa ejjetee mirgota ummatootaf kenne gutumaa gututti kan cabsee dha.

‘Ethiopia Bombs Itself’

Recently released Wikileaks Ethiopia files expose how Ethiopian security forces planted 3 bombs that went off in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa on September 16, 2006 and then blamed Eritrea and the Oromo resistance for the blasts in a case that raises serious questions about the claims made about the bombing attempt against the African Union summit earlier this year in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

In a report from 2006 marked “Secret ; Subject: Ethiopia: Recent Bombings Blamed on Oromos Possibly the Work of GOE [Government of Ethiopia]” “Classified By: Charge [d’Affairs] Vicki Huddleston”, “An embassy source, as well as clandestine reporting, suggests that the bombing may have in fact been the work of the GoE security forces.” (Cable reference id: #06ADDISABABA2708.)

At the time, the western media reported the Ethiopian National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) claims that the bombs were “part of a coordinated terror attack by the OLF [Oromo Liberation Front, the oldest national liberation movement in Ethiopia] and Sha’abiya (Eritrea) aimed at disrupting democratic development”.

The Wikileaks report goes on, “a typically reliable information source” who “contacted Post to report that” the bodies of three men found at the bomb sites “had been picked up by police a week prior, kept in detention and tortured. He said police then left the men in a house and detonated explosives nearby, killing 3 of them.”

This exposes the history of how the Ethiopian regime has planted bombs and then blamed Eritrea and the Ethiopian resistance. The lies that make up the official version of this alleged terrorist attack raises serious questions about the credibility of the recently released report by the UN via its US State Department affiliate, the Monitoring Group for Eritrea and Somalia, which blames the Eritreans and the OLF for the January bombing attempt at the African Union summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Identical lies about a nearly identical “terrorist attack”, all accepted as fact by the western media. This should also deliver another body blow to the Obama White House and its claims that Eritrea supports terrorism in the Horn of Africa.

Dhiibbaa mirgota dhala namaa mootummaan Itopiyaa raawwatee fi raawwata jiru kan himamee dhumu miti.

Kaliti: the Robben Island of Ethiopia

By Obsa O.

b_200_150_16777215_00___images_bakalagarbaDecember 14, 2012, ADDIS ABABA (Opride) — Ethiopia’s Federal Court sentenced two Oromo prisoners of conscience languishing at the notorious Kaliti prison, Bekele Garba and Olbana Lelisa to eight and thirteen years, respectively, under charges of “inciting a secessionist rebellion.”

According to Bloomberg News, seven other Oromos were given sentences ranging from three to 12 years “for getting training in camps in Kenya and being involved in gunfights with Ethiopian soldiers.” In the case of Gerba and Lelisa, one of the evidence used by the prosecutor to win a guilty verdict was speaking to the BBC and meeting with representatives of the UK-based human rights group, Amnesty International.

Ethiopia’s little known Kaliti prison smacks of South Africa’s apartheid-era Robben Island, where thousands of Black South Africans including Nelson Mandela spent their darkest days. The brutality of the apartheid system did not stop at sending freedom thirsty individuals to jail; many were also slayed in their quest for freedom.

Later on, after their ‘long walk to freedom’, Robben Island, South Africa’s equivalent of Alem Bekagn, became an iconic spot for the freedom fighters. The political nature of Robben Island’s inmates, the accounts of terrible prison conditions, and the state of prisoners resemble that of Ethiopia’s Kaliti today.

But unlike Robben Island, Kaliti–a notorious prison on the outskirts of Addis Ababa where prisoners dreadfully stockpiled with poor hygiene and visits by family members and lawyer are at the discretion of a bureaucratic prison supervisor–is little known to the world.

Kaliti houses an estimated 20,000 Oromo political prisoners. Oromo students, academics, members and leaders of opposition have been thrown into this jail under concocted charges. Among them, very few are convicted while the majority languishes without proper legal prosecution. Of course, there are also hundreds of prisoners from different ethnic groups, though their number and the cases they were charged with are incomparable to that of Oromo prisoners. The overwhelming majority of Oromo inmates are prisoners of conscience, who were convicted solely based on their political views and membership in Oromo ethnic group.

“It is bad for Ethiopia that so many Oromos are in a prison,” said Bulcha Demeksa in a recent interview with The Reporter newspaper. “Young people, the productive segment of the society are suffering in jails, in tens of thousands, without committing any crime.”

The sheer brutality and abuse of Oromo prisoners at Kaliti has been documented by human rights activists. The case of Alemayehu Gebra, a physically disabled detainee who was shot to death in prison, underscores this enigma. Gerba, an engineering student at Addis Ababa University, was picked up by security forces from class and jailed at Kaliti in Nov. 2005 after opposing the transfer of Oromia’s capital city from Finfinne (Addis Ababa) to Adama. Despite his medical status, Gerba was reportedly tortured on several occasions and was later shot to death after spending four years incarcerated without due process of law.

Ethiopian Court Gives Oromo Politicians Prison Over Secession

374535_498227683543108_1389307551_n[1]

By William Davison

Dec. 11 (Bloomberg) — Ethiopia’s Federal High Court sentenced two senior Oromo politicians to as much as 13 years in prison after their convictions on charges of inciting a secessionist rebellion.

Bekele Gerba, deputy chairman of the opposition Oromo Federalist Democratic Movement was sentenced to 8 years in prison and Olbana Lelisa of the Oromo People’s Congress party to 13 years, Judge Kenate Hora said.

“It’s absolute injustice,” Bekele said to reporters outside the courtroom. Bekele and Olbana were accused of being members of the banned Oromo Liberation Front and inciting students to rebel, Kenate said. Seven others were given sentences of between three years and 12 years for getting training in camps in Kenya and being involved in gunfights with Ethiopian soldiers, he said.

The Oromo Liberation Front has been fighting for more autonomy for the Oromo, Ethiopia’s most populous ethnicity, since 1973, according to its website. The group was initially part of a transitional government after helping allied rebels oust the Derg military regime in 1991. The Ethiopian government silences legitimate Oromo opposition by branding them rebels, Amnesty International said in a report in January.

Human Rights Activism – The Practice For Changing

December 9, 2012

10 December, 1948 was the day on which United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which has become a universal standard to defend and promote human rights. It is observed every year around the globe as a special day among the peoples of the world. Because it was the day on which the fact that all human beings are born with equal dignity and inalienable rights and fundamental freedoms was recognized thorough the Universal declaration of Human Rights, and spread to the world nations.

A theme is chosen every year for the Human Rights’ Day. This year’s theme of observance of the Human Rights’ Day is “inclusion and the right to participate in public life”. It was taken from Articles 19, 20, and 21 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that elaborate on the right to freedom of expression and opinion, the right to freedom of assembly and association and the right to take part in government, either directly or through freely chosen representatives.

From the outset, the message “Know your human rights” from the United Nations was sent to the citizens of all countries; because human rights are the same for all, regardless of race, color, sex, language or religion. The message was important; because those who are aware of their rights would stand up for the realization of those rights. Learning about one’s own rights builds respect for the rights of others, and shows the way to building a more tolerant and peaceful society. Knowledge of human rights. But, still millions are suffering in the hands of dictators because of their low level of knowledge and understanding of their fundamental rights.

Since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted over 64 years ago, there have been dramatic advances in crafting different human rights instruments as covenants, conventions, protocols and treaties to be used for the realization or implementation of the Declaration. Today, there are about ten such international human rights instruments in place to be followed by the member states. These binding human rights documents, which were created at different times after 1948, were adopted by the majority of member states at UN General Assembly and open for signature and ratification to member states. Once it is signed and ratified by a member state, it the responsibility of the member state to implement and submit every four years a progress report on the protection and promotion of human rights in their territory. All international human rights instruments are delegated by independent committees created by UN and are responsible for monitoring the proper implementation of the documents by member states.

However, many signatory states have been seen while underperforming their responsibilities and duties to protect human rights and fundamental freedoms; and in the contrary becoming human rights violators. Today, millions of citizens are suffering in the hands of their own governments who claim they have a democratic system. Genocide, torture, abduction, killing, and kidnapping are some of the human rights violations still we wittiness after sixty four years of the declaration of human rights. All civil, economic, political, social, and cultural rights have been denied in such countries. When rights to adequate food, housing, employment, cultural life are denied and large group of people are excluded from the society’s decision making processes, they are likely to follow social unrests. A very good example is the Arab Spring, which has been going on for over a year. Such conditions often facilitate the rise of justice conflicts, in which citizens demand that their basic needs be met.

Indeed, many conflicts were sparked or spread due to violations of human rights. For determination to continue fighting. Violations may also lead to further violence from the other side and can contribute to a conflict’s spiraling out of control.

To stand up against the dictators, the civic organizations such as human rights organizations should play a decisive role in educating the people about their human rights. This can increase human rights activism which will bring change in practice as seen in the Middle East and North Africa countries from 2010 to present.

It seems that the UN needs to work towards changing its mechanism of monitoring the member states’ human rights protection and promotion. Of course the activities of UN Human Rights Council should encourage the human rights activism. But, in practice the Human Rights Council condemns only the atrocious situations of human rights in different countries instead of taking practical measures. The respect of human rights should not depend only on the willingness of the member states. The member states also have responsibilities and duties to respect international human rights standards. So, we would like to recommend that the UN organization in general and the Human Rights Council in particular take more stronger steps, such as ranking the member states human rights protection and promotion performances along with some legal measure wherever and whenever needed. In order to take such decisive action, the UN Human Rights Council should first and foremost look within its internal organization. The Organization must clean itself from embracing human rights violator as its member states.
