The Victorious Culture and Nature of The Oromo Liberation Movement!
The political enemies of the Oromo nation, specially the currently ruling Gujile from the Tegaruland, tried to give the Oromo liberation movement in genreal and the OLF in particular a fake and false picture. They tried to present it as a secessionist or separatist movement just trying to discredit the legitimate struggle of the Oromo people for bilisummaa/freedom in front of the international community. They also tried to exploit and use certain areas of conflict in the Oromo liberation camp to hinder the forward march of the Oromo people to bilisummaa.
Fortunately, after many years of conflicts in the Oromo liberation camp, now it seems that all Oromo nationals from the Oromo political spectrum, extending from the left wing to the right wing, are coopertaing with each other and coordinating our efforts in order to liberate the Oromo people from the currently ruling fascist and racist regime.
Specially, it is encouraging to observe the still strong Oromian Students' Movement (OSM), including the Qeerroo movement for freedom and democracy, being part and parcel of the ongoing Oromo liberation movement (part of our Fighter-Jet). I think we can present this Fighter-Jet as an airkraft with the following left wing, middle body and right wing. The skilled pilot of the Fighter-Jet is, of course, our famous mindset of bilisummaa, the OLF.
1) The left wing, who talks about the possibility of forging 'Oromia in Ethiopia'. This wing includes those Oromo nationalists, who do want to have an integrative Oromia in a form of an autonomous Oromian state within Ethiopian federation, for they think that even the large part of the so called Abyssinia in the current geography of Ethiopia belongs to Oromia.
2) The middle body, who strives to realize 'Oromia vs Ethiopia' as the two separated neighbouring nations, the same as the two-states-solution of the Israel-Palestinian conflict; this group considers Ethiopia as being the same to the colonizer Abyssinia.
3) The right wing, who tries to foster the notion of an integrative Oromia in a form of 'Oromia is Ethiopia', claiming that even the whole Ethiopia was once Oromia and can again be transformed into Oromia,
This Fighter-Jet is actually a well developed Oromo liberation movement like a well grown butterfly, which had firstly got its caterpillar and then developed its two wings. The middle body (the caterpillar) of the Oromo liberation movement is the one which started to grow in 1969 with the kaayyoo/goal of realizing an independent Oromia to be liberated from the colonizer neighbouring Abyssinia. The left wing grew in 1991 as the Oromo liberation movement could get rid of the fascist Derg trying to forge free 'Oromia in Ethiopia'. Now the right wing is developing in order to get rid of the currently ruling fascist and racist Gujile and then foster a liberated country in a form of 'Oromia is Ethiopia'.
Interestingly this currently ongoing pan-OLF movement tries to take into consideration the beneficial move of the above three factions of the Oromo liberation movement and tries to harmonize these three types of moves towards bilisummaa. But, in order to accomodate these different Oromo positions regarding our future type of sovereignty (walabummaa) of Oromia, all Oromo nationalists have to be able to concentrate on the common denominator of all the positions, i.e on bilisummaa of the Oromo people. To comprehend what I do mean, we just need to compare the following interesting three concepts: secession, independence and sovereignty. Let me try to put the difference in short as follows:
- secession needs the precondition of being legally part of one sovereign nation and being a minority nation at the periphery. Oromia has never been legally part of Ethiopia and it is neither a minority nation nor at periphery unlike Tigrai. So Oromia’s question is not a question of secession in this sense.
- independence is the liberation of a subjugated nation from the other oppressive one, as the case we do see in the attempt of some Oromo nationals trying to emancipate the occupied Oromia from the oppressive Abyssinia.
- sovereignity is the right of the liberated and free nation to decide on the type of arrangement it wants, like the sovereignty of the Oromo nation to decide on its future in a form of an independence, be it within or without Ethiopia.
Thus, according to the right of the Oromo nation to its own bilisummaa and walabummaa, it is not wrong if some Oromo nationals do strive for the right of Oromo and Oromia within Ethiopia, as long as the determining factor is the result of the referendum. That is why it is so nice to see that our nationalists are bombarding tyranic Abyssinists from the three parts of our Fighter-Jet.
This is really very scary for the enemy of the Oromo nation. Important is that all the three parts do fight the enemy, but do not attack each other. In the currently ongoing rhetorics, it is good that the OLF factions are refrainig from attacking each other. Of course, it is clear that we do read nowadays a lot of the criminal cadres of the Gujile camouflaging as Oromo nationals in order to sow a discord in the Oromo liberation camp by trying to support one faction of the OLF and attack the others!
