The nature of TPLF regime

By Leenjsoo Horoo

It is quite amazing how little those of us who even follow the events in the Ethiopia Empire and in Diasporas really know and understand the very nature of TPLF (aka Wayyane), its sinister scheme, its aspiration and the degree of its danger.

It is a marginal organization from a tiny population, a population that barely exceeds the population of Finfinnee (Addis Ababa). Its leadership being a member of such a tiny marginal organization, it fears larger ones. As a consequence, it lives in fear and so feels insecure. It found itself in the midst of ocean of the insurgent people: the Oromo people and other peoples. It fears the people and peoples' organizations. So it has built a source of its own security. Its source of security is based on its army, the police force, the security apparatus, and rings of spies, informers, Death Squads, kidnapping squads, and their foreign supporters.

On the other hand, it is a violent organization; a violent regime. As such, it is a rebel, a militia, a court, a church, a corporation, a legislative, a judiciary, an army, a government in open, and a government in secrecy, all in one. It controls all; it runs all. Having grabbed all these, it has turned itself into a murderous regime of men, women, and children. Hence, in Oromiya its rule is characterized by, and based on, repression, intimidation, assault on human rights and human dignities. Arbitrarily arresting, kidnapping, torturing, and killing, and quick arrest and release, long-term and life-time imprisonment of opponents are its core policy. It is a regime that has lost the spirit of humanity and moral values; it is a sadistic killer. TPLF is an arch-anti-Oromo organization.

This enemy is artfully using Oromos to destroy Oromiya and its people. It has created collaborationist Oromo police and informers within Oromiya that keep a close eye on the Oromo population, regularly visiting, detaining and torturing suspected ones, in the name of "democracy", state security and safety. Hence, in the teeth of Tigrean reign of terror, ruthless suppression of political dissent has become part of life in Oromiya and Ethiopia. Many Oromo were arrested and tortured and killed; many disappeared without trace. Violence is the nature of this regime. Violence emanates from its frenzied insecurity, from its intolerance, from its desire for grabbing someone's wealth, from looting a country's resources for enriching themselves, from lust for power and dominance.

Dr. Levi, himself a survivor of holocaust, wrote about the violence, and the genocide that happened in Europe. His words read in part as:

We must be listened to...we have collectively witnessed a fundamental, unexpected event, fundamental precisely because unexpected, not foreseen by anyone. It [violence] took place in the teeth of all forecasts; it happened in Europe; incredibly, it happened that an entire civilized people... followed a buffoon whose figure today inspire laughter, and yet Adolf Hitler was obeyed and his praises were sung right up to catastrophe. It happened, therefore it can happen again: this is the core of what we have to say.

Moreover, he predicted that the same violence can happen anywhere. Again, his words reads in part as:

It can happen, and it can happen anywhere.... Violence... is therefore before our eyes: it snakes through ...government lawlessness.... In the Third World it is endemic or epidemic. It only awaits its new buffoon... to organize it, legalize it, declare it necessary and mandatory, and so contaminate the world. Few countries can be considered immune to a future tide of violence generated by intolerance, lust for power, economic difficulties, religious or political fanaticism, and racialist attritions. It is therefore necessary to sharpen our senses, distrust the prophets, the enchanters, those who speak and write "beautiful words" unsupported by intelligent reasons.

As Levi predicted, it again happened. The awaited new buffoon has arrived with his violence. And so the violence has already begun in the Third World. It is happening in the Ethiopian empire against the Oromo and other peoples in the Empire. Indeed, the Tigrean buffoon, Meles Zenawi, has already organized violence, legalized it, declared it as necessary and mandatory to be implemented not only against the Oromo people, but also against all peoples in the empire; not only against Oromiya and its natural habitats, but also against Ethiopia itself and its natural habitats. Indeed, TPLF is a fascist organization and the Empire is under the teeth of its fascistic rule.

Obbo Leenjiso,
this part of your article is marveleous and reflects 100% fact. The important question is, how can we get rid of this bufoon! We surely need an imperative 'tokkummaa of the Oromo liberation forces' and an optional, but important 'tumsa with Other democratic forces' against this fascist and racist regime! For this to happen, especially there must be a sort of compromise b/n the Amhara democrats and the Oromo liberators.

I personally think that an independent Oromia in an integrated Ethiopia is the possible compromise solution for the hitherto face-off between the pro-independence Oromo forces and the pro-integration Amhara forces, so that they can work together to help the revolution erupt and to get rid of the fascist and racist Woyane. As far as we, the Oromo, are concerned, I hope all the Oromo patriots in all organizations will agree with each other in the future and act in tandem to struggle for Oromian independence and Oromian unity, also taking into consideration the the necessary unity of the region at the following levels:

- at Finfinne level: to attain and maintain Finfinne as a core of our Oromo nation, which is like our Oromo heart, and promote it to be the capital, the center and the core of all the other levels of unity; i.e the core of the unity at the level of Oromia, level of Ethiopia, level of the Horn and level of Africa.

- at Oromian level: in addition to having Finfinne as a core, to attain and maintain our national liberty and national unity in a form of Oromian independence and Oromian integration unconditionally, because Oromia is like our Oromo body.

- at Ethiopian level: after securing Oromian independence and Oromian unity, we do have no problem with a possible Ethiopian union, which can be considered as our Oromo inner clothing, like a shirt, which we can put on or take off based on our political will and our necessity.

- at the Horn level: a union, which will be based and build on an independent and an integrated Oromia, will be just advantageous for Oromia in particular, and for the Horn region in general, which is our Oromo middle clothing, like a coat.

- at African level: a federation/union with Finfinne as its capital or with Oromia as a center of African politics is simply a glory for Oromia, which is like our Oromo overcoat.

I believe our colonizers (Abyssinian ruling class) also will be compelled in due time to learn accepting and respecting this vision as their own long term goal. Hopefully, the popular mass of both the Amhara and the Tigrai also will slowly but surely start to struggle for the self-determination of their own nations in order to then forge the lasting commonly advantageous union of independent nations in the Horn region.

This is a response to the previous comment on March 27, 2011 9:43:00 AM EDT.

Obboo, Are you missing the points purposely, or are you denying the facts? It appears to me that once you are fixated/obsessed on begging the Amharas for inclusion to an Oromoo struggle, you can not hear or read any other facts brewing around you.
This is why you keep repeating the same dead message you are trying to shove down our throat. What a pity. No, No, and No, My friend, this is an Oromo struggle against Abyssinian colonization. We do not need any Abyssinian group at this juncture in our revolutionary journey. The burning need for the Ormo struggle is, first: the unity of the Oromos against their common enemy.

Yes we do will to include others who are also the subjects of Abyssinian barbaric deeds, but not the other cousins of the present hyena. May be, just may be, we might think of strategical cooperation with any of the Abyssinian group later. But for now we need to prioritize our steps, and the people of Oromia chose their own unity, and foreseeable unity with other oppressed people, before getting in bondage with the Abssinians. I hope you understand our choice, unless you are on another mission to create chaos within the journey to freedom. But if that is your choose, it is not the first time we are faced with saboteurs within. Therefore, our struggle against our people’s enemy will be continued, including within against the fast and sweet talkers, but the collaborators with our enemy, just like you.

Thanks! Obbo Leenjsoo,
It is a pretty fact contained article and a painful reality for every Oromo as such ruled by the Hungery minority mafia groups on our land, of course financed by the west at large. At one time the Oromos were known as the best warriors to defend their national interest. In 1991, believing in a democratic system as our cultural value we helped the TPLF to establish itself in Fifinnee without great challenge. Since then from looting, intimidation and killing innocent Oromos and others became a matter of survive for power and a lucrative business opportunity for once a victimised by poverty is as if a daily revenge against the Oromo nation who are feeding them without feeding itself. Here GAYE must come and for our historical moment, we have to pick up our Gaachana by our Tokkummaa against such inhuman minority group for Liberty and Identity concern.

Thanks! For your in part interesting opinion. Yes your call for tumsa against the TPLF regime is a welcome if you have in mind between the oppressed nations without any compromise. For any case, we never ever compromise on our destiny. I hardly understand your point, what do mean by Independent Oromia in integrated Ethiopia?. This shows your true hearts and minds towards the dying empire to save at least by such misleading concept. You have a right as any others advocating for the unity of the empire rather than pretending an Independist.
"Union of Independent Nations"-is not a free access club for everybody where to entere and make a noise as you have in mind to save the empire by such cosmetic change. It is a too difficult duty for all based on extremely economic parameters encluding Deficit control, good governance and Pact of Stability and hence it canno be a trading horse.
"Ethiopian Union"- is a more embarassing than misleading when even the most powerful Soviet Union project collapsed for the search of national Identity is a fresh memory if the moment.

Oh! You, Yaadasaa/Abbaa Xoonee, are now supporting the tokkummaa, which you cursed in the past? Good progress! Just wait, surely you will also start to sing about the goodness of the tumsa when the time comes! Jabaadhu, jiraadhu!
