Oromia-Ethiopia: Human Rights Violations Against Oromo Nation by TPLF Regime – Gadaa.com Oduu
April 12, 2012
Some of the violated human rights of the Oromo people include the right to self-determination, the right to work (in which, in several cases, Oromo job-seekers are forced to change their Afan-Oromo names and hide their Oromo-ness in order to get jobs), the right to education, and the right to take part in cultural life (it’s to be noted that Macha-Tulama Association’s leaders and supporters are currently in prison for promoting Oromo culture and history). The representative also mentioned about the ongoing land-grabbing by the TPLF regime and foreign governments.
The above human rights are recognized by the UN’s International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR).
