The Collaboration Of GPLM’s Disgraced Member With TPLF Never Hinder Its Struggle For The Rights Of Gambella People.
Press Statement by Peoples’ Alliance for Freedom and Democracy (PAFD)
November 11, 2017

people

The Gambella Peoples’ Liberation Movement (GPLM), one of the founding members of the ‘Peoples’ Alliance for freedom and Democracy’ (PAFD), remains fighting for the freedom and self-determination of its people for several decades. With the PAFD, the GPLM is also the component of an ongoing struggle for the freedom and self-determination of the wider peoples of the country.
Since the TPLF regime assumed power in mid-1991, the Gambella people as the rest peoples of the country is subjected to ongoing state-terrorism. Moreover, the harrowing suffering of the Gambella people during the brutal genocide committed against them by the TPLF’s regime between 13 and 16 of December 2003, reverberates in the psyches of every person in Ethiopia.

News Release by PAFD, Office of Media, Information and Communication (MIC)
November 05, 2017

people

The external committee of Peoples’ Alliance for Freedom and Democracy (PAFD) held its extraordinary meeting, on the 1 st of November 2017, to discuss the current critical affairs of Ethiopia. The committee unanimously considered that, all peoples of Ethiopia including the opposition groups, operating both in Diaspora and within the country need to work together to be able to end the ongoing brutality of the TPLF’s regime to the subjects. The committee further asserted that, there are compelling arguments that need to be seriously considered at this critical juncture in the history of the country. Peoples in Ethiopia’s all angles are paying heavy prices with their precious lives. The TPLF authoritarian regime remain employing a full-scale state terrorism as a means of governance, under various pretexts. Such indefensible acts of brutalities become much harsher and pervasive than ever as the regime gasps for its final breath. We believe that, an urgent collaboration of all stakeholders is indispensable.

The Sidama People Must Dismantle The “Special Militia” Discreetly Created By TPLF To Attack The Oromo Nation.
Press Statement by Sidama National Liberation Front (SNLF).
October 16, 2017

people

The Ethiopian Empire has entered into a new phase of self-destruction under the brutal dictatorship of the Tigray Peoples Liberation Front (TPLF) camouflaged as ‘Ethiopian Peoples’ Revolutionary Democratic Front’ (EPRDF). Having been unequivocally rejected by the majority of the population of the Empire, notably by the Oromo and Amhara nations, as well as the Sidama, Somali, Benishangul-Gumuz, Gambella, and many other oppressed nations of the country, the predatory Tigre ruling cliques have resorted to the most primitive and genocidal tactics of divide and rule. The most vivid manifestation of this has been the creation of special police forces known as Liyu Militia within each oppressed nation with two core purposes: (1) spy on any form of political dissent within each oppressed nation and crush them with brute force; and (2) instigate conflicts with the neighboring sisterly oppressed nations to prolong the TPLF dictatorship.

The Dictatorial and Predatory Ethiopian TPLF Regime Will Never Succeed in Instigating Conflicts Between The Sisterly Oromo And Sidama Nations!
Press Statement by Sidama National Liberation Front (SNLF).
September 12, 2017

people

The predatory Tigre Ethiopian Empire is crumbling from within and without. It is destroying itself from endemic economic and political corruption from within. The demise of the brutal regime is precipitated from without by the mass uprising of the majority Oromo nation who are demanding an end to the over a century of political and economic marginalization, and restoration of freedom, justice and self-rule in their vast Oromia land. The Oromo uprising has been continuing since 2015

Instead of answering the legitimate question of the Oromo nation by granting them their inalienable democratic rights to self-determination, the TPLF regime embarked on desperate measures to cling onto illegitimate political power. It has also monopolised the economic aspects of the entire country. The political aspects in Oromia alone included, brutal massacre of over 1,500 peaceful Oromo protesters since 2015; mass imprisonment of over 60,000 Oromo civilians; imprisonments of the entire leadership of the Oromo Federalist Congress including the renowned Professor of Political Science, Marara Gudina and prominent politician, Bekele Gerba, as well as a dozen Sidama political activists including a prominent business person, Solomon Naayu, and Dawassa Daaka, most of whom are languishing in Qilinxo prison today.

The Sidama and Wolayta Nations Should Reject TPLF’s Divide-and- Rule Tactics.
Press Statement by Sidama National Liberation Front (SNLF)
July 12, 2017

people

The Tigray Peoples Liberation Front (TPLF) which usurped political power by military force in 1991, continues to undermine peace, democracy and economic development in Ethiopia. It continues to stifle political participation and basic human and democratic rights among all oppressed nations in the country. After the Oromoand Amhara uprisings in 2015 and 2016, the TPLF regime imposed state of emergency under which it continues to commit abominable atrocities against the Oromo and other nations in the country, whilst the West’s politicians remain obliviously sponsoring TPLF regime, thus doing little or nothing.

TPLF / EPRDF’s Regime Must Unconditionally Stop its Plot to Indirectly Implement Addis-Masterplan in Oromo land
Press Statement by Peoples’ Alliance for Freedom and Democracy (PAFD)
July 2, 2017

people

Article 49 (5) of the current Ethiopian constitution recognizes the Oromia’s special interest in Finfinnee (Addis Ababa). According to these rights, Oromia should have had the said interests honored, decades ago. However, in the past 26 years, TPLF’s regime has repeatedly denied these and the other fundamental rights; instead displacing tens of thousands of Oromo peasants from the environs of Finfinnee and the other neighboring villages and districts, as the capital rapaciously expands. Tens of thousands of Oromo civilians have been murdered by the security and armed forces of the incumbent for demanding these rights to be honored. Tens of thousands become destitute beggars in their own ancestral lands; whereas TPLF and its affiliates exponentially increase their wealth in Oromo land, including in Finfinnee..

15 years have passed since TPLF has committed mass murder of innocent Sidama civilians at Looqqe.15 years later, Perpetrators held top positions in TPLF government
May 24, 2017

people

15 years ago, TPLF government issued a brazen order to relocate Sidama administration from Hawassa city to another town to take full control of the city which had been cultural, social and administration center of Sidama people for centuries. This daring order created shock and anger among the Sidamas. In response, thousands of Sidama people, from all walks of life planned to stage a peaceful demonstration demanding the reversal of this illegal decision. demonstration day was then set to be May 24 and the demonstration to kickoff at Loqqe village which is located at outskirt of Hawassa city and to be concluded at city's main square later on that day.

In the meantime, the TPLF regime which subjugated the Sidama people to this date, was scheming not only to give the Sidama people a lesson, but beyond to anyone who dares to resist its expansion policy by controlling economic and social institutions in the country. The regime had been committing calculated cold blooded killings of innocent Ethiopian before, but no one was even thinking the government that otherwise supposed to care for people was about to committee mass murder in such scale in broad daylight. This type of massacre has now become a signature of this murderous regime.

The Ongoing Massacre of Oromo Civilians Never Resolve EPRDF/TPLF’s Inherent Malice!
Press Release by Sidama National Liberation Front (SNLF)
February 02, 2017

people

Since capturing the state power a quarter of a century ago, the TPLF/EPRDF dictatorial regime has monopolized the political governance and embarked on a project of fear, dehumanization, depersonalization, exploitation of peoples’ lands and wealth for its benefit, and systematic enslavement of the citizens of the country. Often changing its color like Chameleons, TPLF/EPRDF has proved its expertise in cheating, deceiving, stealing and more importantly brutalizing its subjects at an unprecedented scale. The regime has maintained its grip on power with barrel of gun terrorizing its subjects day and night. During TPLF/EPRDF 26 years of tenure, it became clear that the grotesque nature of the regime is multilayered and deeper than any person can comprehend.
