Partial Lists of people killed in different parts of Oromia (16th  February, 2018-16th April 2019)
(A4O, 20 Finfinnee 2019) The Ethiopian ODP-led EPRDF regime continues its persistent genocidal actions against innocent and unarmed civilians of Oromos who attempt to exercise their democratic rights.

Documented human rights violations record showed that increase in human rights abuse correlates closely with increase in political cases. Regarding the Oromos documented human rights violations committed to it includes mass massacre, extra-judicial killings, arbitrary arrests, torture, displacement and forced conscription remained non-ending war.

Lammii Beenyaa, an Oromo human rights activist, compiled lists of 210 Oromos who killed in different parts of Oromia since the controversial State of emergency was reinstated on 16th February, 2018.

Ethiopia: Transition to Democracy at a Crossroads, Persistent Human Rights Violations and Harassment Continue Unabated

HRLHA Press Release
May 3, 2019

May 3, 2019
The Human Rights League of the Horn of Africa (HRLHA) is seriously concerned about the human rights violations in Ethiopia that have continued unabated after the new Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed came to power in April 2018. Ethiopians and people of the world expected a significant decline in gross human rights abuses the EPRDF has committed over two decades. However, arbitrary arrests, killings, and harassments have widely continued unabated in Oromia Regional State including in Finfinnee. Harassments in the rural Oromia Regional State including looting and destroying personal properties, killing domestic animals and arresting family members by Federal military forces in Oromia Regional State in Western Oromia, in Wallagga four zones and in Southern Oromia in Gujii Eastern and Western zones- with the pretext of supporting Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) fighters by the federal military- are among the ongoing government repressions in Oromia.
According to the HRLHA informants in different parts of Oromia, at least 140 Oromos- mostly youth- have been killed and over 383 others have been detained in different prisons in Oromia zones including in Finfinne/Addis Ababa the capital city by the current government military forces since the new Prime Minister, Dr. Abiy Ahmed came to power in April 2018.
The following are among Oromos detained in different prisons as reported by HRLHA informants in different parts of Oromia Zones and Finfinne/Addis Ababa (See list on Page 3)

Ethiopia’s ethnic conflicts could destabilize the democratic reforms
Today, the ethnic conflicts between nations and nationalities in Ethiopia have spread across the country; these have claimed tens of thousands of lives and displaced over 3.5 million from their livelihoods. The long-standing border crossing attack by the “Liyu Hayil” special force from Ethiopian Somali against Oromos in the Eastern Hararge districts, Southern Oromia Borana, Gujii and Bale zones, has caused the eviction over one million Oromos from Ethiopia’s Somali region in 2017. Most of these people remain displaced.
The conflict between Gujii Oromo and Gedeo caused the eviction of half a million people from Oromia’s Guji areas. The victims are living today in appalling conditions in schools and temporary camps.
The border conflict between Amhara and Oromo in the northern part of Oromia, in Kamise and Wallo Oromos, and the conflict between the Oromo and Gumuz nations in the West, show that the current Ethiopian government has lost control or is not willing to enforce the constitutional rights of the citizens regarding territorial integrity of regional states.
Recently, the conflicts between Amhara and Gumuz ethnic groups has escalated and many lives have been lost. From 29th April to May 2, 2019, over 250 Gumuz people- including children and pregnant women- have been reportedly murdered in Hawi Zone of Amhara Regional State by Amhara armed groups. This is an alarming situation and shows that the country is heading towards a more complex ethnic-based war unless the government take serious measures to control it.
In April 2018, as Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed came to power, tens of thousands of political prisoners were released, and previously banned political organizations were allowed to operate freely by lifting the repressive laws. However, the Prime Minister’s many motivational speeches presumably designed to connect the past history of the country to its present and help to rebuild Ethiopia has created suspense as to his commitment to many nations and nationalities from across the country who expected their grievances of several years would be resolved in a way they think provides a sustainable solution. Nations and nationalities who were unhappy with the speeches of the Prime Minister about the past historical formation of the country were forced to voice their historic grievances that they have been fighting for over many years. Among the many long-standing grievances the nations and nationalities in Ethiopia are asking the government to solve are equality, land rights, political, economic and, social rights and good governance. These grievances are part of the four years of Oromo protest demands which began in April 2014 and continued to April 2018 until the EPRDF government was forced to change its policies- and that brought Dr. Abiy Ahmed to power.
As it has been said “Justice delayed is Justice denied”- if wrong is not corrected within a reasonable period of time, it is as though the wrong were not corrected at all.
In the same manner, delaying solving the nations and nationalities grievances, equality, justice and good governance has increased the tensions between the people and the government and clashes between ethnic groups. This inability or unwillingness to resolve the grievances of the nations and nationalities could escalate to a level at which the government could totally lose control over the country.

HRLHA’s Recommendations
In order to tackle all challenges to ensure the optimism and hope of Ethiopians to transform the country into a democracy, the government of Ethiopia should:
• Take urgent steps to restore law and order based on the Federal constitution of the country
• Release political prisoners, including Colonel Gemechu Ayana, to keep the PM of Ethiopia’s promises that no more persons will be arrested for his/her political affiliations
• Uphold Prime Minister Dr.Abiy’s promises of unity and inclusion among the nations and nationalities and turn them into tangible strategies based on a Federalism system that is targeted at encouraging social cohesion by responding to longstanding grievances of nations and nationalities in the country
• Seek strategies based on the Federal Constitution to prevent and resolve violent ethnic conflicts and clashes among regional states and within each state by establishing an early warning system and establishing a conflict controlling mechanism and bring the perpetrators of human rights abusers to justice including members of regional “Liyu Hayil “ special force members
• Undertake concrete economic reforms to address young men and women’s expectations by creating jobs so that those who have graduated from colleges and universities are not left on the streets without any means to survive
