Ethiopia: State – Sponsored Terrorism and Military Brutality in Oromia

HRLHA Urgent Action
August 17, 2016

Ethiopia, a UN Human Rights Council member since 2011, and an elected member of the UN Security Council as of 2017 is committing state- sponsored terror against the Oromo nation in violation of the UN Human Rights Council responsibility for the promotion and protection of all human rights and the UN Security Council responsiblities for maintaining international peace and security as well as the human rights treaties it has signed and ratified.
The government- trained and highly funded Agazi force shot Gebeyehu Jalata, a medical doctor, several times at his personal clinic in East Wallaga Nekemt town on August 6, 2016 while he was allegedly treating wounded protestors at his clinic. Dr. Gebehu Jalata was taken to the Nekemt hospital for treatment and died on August 15, 2016 .
The Agazi killing squad also invaded Mr. Hora Fajisso’s home- he is a farmer in East Showa Zone Adami Tulu district, Batu town- and murdered him in his bed in front of his three children and his wife at 5:00 am on August 16, 2016.
During the grand nationwide Oromo nation protests on August 6,2016, the Agazi force killed at least 70 people and arrested tens of thousands of others in Oromia Regional State.
The August 6, 2016 massacres of Oromo raised the total number of Oromos murdered since the protests started in November 2015 to over 700.
Awaday town in East Hararge Zone, Nekemt town in East Wallaga zone, Adaba town, West Arsi zone and Dodola town, Bale Zones were the places where many protesters were brutalized on August 6, 2016. Many Oromos have been also killed including in the capital Finfinnee/Addis Ababa city, Adama and Shashamane East Showa zone towns.
Among the Oromos killed on August 06, 2016 the HRLHA reporters managed to get the names of the following 65 people

The HRLHA calls upon governments of the West, the UN Human Rights Council and the UN Security Council, of which Ethiopia is a member, and all local, regional and international human rights agencies to condemn the barbaric actions of the Ethiopian government against its citizens and to demand that Ethiopia pull back its killing squad and allow a neutral body to investigate the human rights atrocities in Oromia.
