A Month-long Global "Oromummaa Campaign" - June 2021

Press Release

The month of June 2021 is special for Oromos for a couple of reasons.

First, having herded Oromo political leaders into prison on trumped up charges the neo-neftenya government of Ethiopia (GoE) is planning to hold a fake general election, in June, in which it is the only contender. The Oromo people, in Oromia and in the Diaspora, will be demonstrating to the world its rejection of this not free, nor fair, sham election in which it is not represented.

Secondly, last year, in the month of June, after murdering our beloved artist and activist Hacalu Hundessa, the neo-neftenya GoE used it as a pretext to continue killing and herding Oromo people into detention camps.

Having recognized these acts of the GoE to be part and parcel of its long campaign conducted to destroy Oromummaa (Oromo identity) and dismantle Oromia, Oromo organizations and intellectuals came together and decided that June 2021 become “Oromummaa Campaign” month.

Vision

Build the capacity of Oromo citizens to make their voices heard and take their right place in the world community.

Mission

Network, Mobilize and Organize Oromo human and material resources to empower the nation to defend its rights, stand for peace, justice, equity, and democratic governance through self-determination.

Values

Our values are based on the egalitarian Gadaa/Siinqee system of the Oromo nation, which stands for, and promotes, truth, social justice, equality of citizens, unity of the nation, integrity of Oromia, freedom, peace and prosperity of the nation.

Success

Oromia Global Forum (OGF) was created to enhance each member organization’s chances for advocacy success. A coalition of 40+ Oromo faith-based, community, civic, professional and scholarly organizations, and human rights advocates, it is formed to efficiently and effectively coordinate their shared mission of advocating for the voiceless victims of injustice in Oromia, and beyond, so as to maximize their advocacy outcomes.

 

A first of its kind, with clear value proposition, OGF has demonstrated its value-add. It has created enthusiasm for, and brought to a whole new level, networking, information sharing, resource pooling and collaboration among Oromo organizations in the diaspora. It has implemented advocacy strategies such as issue analysis, organizing, raising public awareness, and lobbying to influence advocacy outcomes. In terms of issuing  appeal letters to governmental, international and non- governmental organizations, and statements in defense of the Oromo nation’s rights, OGF has  done a lot in its short span of existence. Creating links and engagements between Oromo and other nations and nationalities in Ethiopia, thereby establishing people-to-people connections and solidarity, is another arena in which OGF has demonstrated its value-add.

It is continuously striving to include more Oromo organizations and to connect its advocacy work to home-based activities.
