OGF letter to Project Syndicate objecting the inclusion of an undeserving speaker, Abiy Ahmed, as a speaker at The Green Recovery virtual event, 16-17 September 2020. Climate change is no longer science fiction but the most consequential human activity-caused episode challenging our very existence. If we fail to take drastic actions today to decelerate or reverse the deteriorating trend, it is no longer if, but when the continued survival of life on earth as we know it will cease to exist.
Following the assassination of the popular Oromo singer and song writer Hachalu Hundessa on 29 June 2020, a confusion as to who killed him, and where and how his body was to be put to rest ensued. The government of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed intervened in the decision of the family and friends about Hachalu’s final resting place and timing.
We, the members of Oromia Global Forum (OGF) condemn in the strongest possible term the brutal killings and atrocities committed against the people of Wolaita by the Ethiopian government security forces for peacefully demanding their right to form their own administrative regional state, a right that is enshrined in the constitution of the country.
