I want to thank the two gentle Ethiopians, and appreciate their up-biulding comments. Yes, political exchanges among Ethiopians lack decency for a reason not obvious to us. Having said that, I would like to comment on the way the string of comments below are made and their tone. Let us not forget that we are talking about something that claimed the lives of hundreds of Oromo youth who stood up for their rights and the rights of their people. We´re therefore, dealing with something serious. and in the interest of the berieved families of the deceased we should be respectful enough when we deal with this issue. Those of you who do not understand what the protest in Oromiya was all about, you have the right to ask rather than jump to a conclusion based on the scanty and twisted information you hear from the state media. Those of you supporting the protest also have the responsibility to explain the root cause of the problem so that other mislead or misguided Ethiopians know and appreciate your cause.
As to me the quest of the Oromos is something that all Ethiopians should give their support to. The did not ask extras rather they are resisting eviction from the land of their ancestors, a land where their umbilical cord was buried, a land they have been tiling for generations. Most of all they are being evicted without adequate compensation. Who among you would accept if he is asked to leave his home and go somewhere? Moreover, some of this development meant selling the land to foreign companies and exposing the indigenous population to enslavement by the foreign companies or be causal laborers in nearby towns. The case of the Gambelans in the recent past is a living proof. For those who have noted the recent spat between the EPRDF government and Karuturi, a company that has leased a huge land mass in Gambella, and didn´t do anything on it after deforesting the land and distroying the echo system is another ongoing saga showing the demise of the governments un-thoughtout plan. More than all the above, the people have the right to decide on their fate. Gone are the days where governments dictate what they think is good for the people.

My dear friend, whoever you are, THANK YOU!!! you just hit the nail on the head. I always feel ashamed when I see how my fellow Ethiopians address each other on the social media. it shows me how our culture and value system was eroded over the years and how we succumbed to such a cavalierly attitude. if things continue the way they are going now we might come to a point where we need a cultural revolution. Our communication lacks ethics. May we all keep in mind that we are seen here as Ethiopians and our undesired behavior tarnishes the name of millions of Ethiopians and give wrong impression to many who don´t know us. Let us therefore learn to discipline ourselves and discuss our points with decency.

Guys, can´t we discuss our differences with respect to each other? why portray this despicable attitude? How are we leave harmoniously and talk about democratic values if we can not even have decent discussions? moreover, we are in an era where all our utterances are seen by the whole world because of the access created by technology. Have you ever imagined how people will view you as Ethiopians because they don´t know you individually? It also tells about ones upbringing and maturity. So, try to put your opinion across in a dignified manner. Learn from the decent and honorable discussions made by the village elders and the illiterate peasants. Don´t ever think you´re learned or knowledgeable we all have a lot to learn when it comes to debating our differences.

The video show us the real picture of TPLF/EPRDF system in Ethiopia. What the TPLF knows only to evict, arrest, detain, jail and kill Ethiopian. So, it is time for people to do all what they can depose this corrupt and dictator government of Tigray.

Wayane terrorists:

Want expansion and development ? As we understand you were born mentally underdeveloped.
So what about expanding your moms wombs, get in there, nourish and develop yourselves, we welcome you in Oromia as "investors" and "rulers" when you are ready and mature? Until you do that leave us alone. Don't steal milk from our children. NO ONE invited you to be in our land!

Shut up ass hole, down here!
What is development? Is it evicting or killing your family and building my own on their blood and bones?
If development means just building a house to run a business or just to live in why not build UPWARDS. Look at the blue sky above you. It has no limit!! You are rich and there is no financial concern for you, we are not asking where you got the money from, yet. Why should your expansion be on my farmland, at the expense of my family? What should I feed my children? Do you expect children to survive beyond five years if they don't get milk? Ask your mom how she raised you!!! Why should I allow foreign companies render my farmland to their flower, sugarcane of biofuel farm where my cows graze? What's in there for me and my family? Just watching and be your beggar? No thanks. This is not about being or not being oromo. It's all about basic human right.

Why should I loose my cultural and linguistic heritage, just because you have money to expand? What if I don't want building on my farm at all, even if you offer more than fair compensation?

Try expanding on my property and I will help you!!!!!
