Change comes from struggle. We shows the struggle towards the violated rights and freedoms by others body. By Behailu M.
”A student was tied in contorted positions and suspended from the wall by one wrist because a business plan he prepared for a university competition was deemed to be underpinned by political motivations.”(Amnesty International report)
“The government was forcing students to be a member of the party
[OPDO]. They have a form to fill in to become a member and in order
to get opportunities, including job opportunities, after graduation. If
students refused, there was a consequence.”(Amnesty International report)
“In early 2013, many people demonstrated in Chiro because most
Oromo students do not get assigned to any job because of our ethnicity
if we’re not a member of OPDO. Twelve people were arrested for that
demonstration.”(Amnesty International report)
“There are agents among students and university compound police who
leak information to the police outside the compound.”(Amnesty International report)
Since a long time ethiopian government are rapidly doing his human abuse work and become the most devastating in political status. Some parts like Oromia, continue to show exceptionally high levels of human right abuse and incidence. Now it’s up to people on the ground in Ethiopia, as well as people outside of Ethiopia like the Oromo diaspora, to lobby the Ethiopian Government to implement the recommendations it accepted and to monitor whether the government is keeping its word.
Human rights is a concept of universal dignity which all human beings yearn for, irrespective of their race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, or culture. The issue of human rights protection in Africa can be approached from two interrelated perspectives. One has to do with the conventional perception of human rights as a Western concept and the extent to which it is familiar or alien to the African cultural heritage. The other is the degree to which African cultures have a distinctive contribution to make in legitimizing and reinforcing the universality of human rights with African values and practices. Specific examples in this regard are African indigenous notions of democratic participation in governance and socio-economic development.
