Forget others or the past for a minute,
even the two of us could not agree on anything living in diaspora, that says something about our society.
The difference between you and me... you are extreme oromo nationalist, I am open to reason.
Even if whatever happened in the past, why am I responsible for it? or indeed any new generations?
I hate Mengistu a lot but I do not blame his children or his wife, he happened to be their father.
you did not choose your parent before they married from which ethnic or from which race,
why is it your fault for being who you are? carrying the burden of the past? name calling etc.

I never said the past was perfect, in fact, I criticize the past as well as the present,
the students movement against Hailesilasie and later massacred under Qey-shibir most were Amharas.
What about the Neway brothers the first who started the struggle 60 years ago?, Walelign mekonnen? etc.
Today they are called yemenelik sefariwoch, neftegna zeroch, and now yeAbyssinia seferiwoch,
keep changing names, we know who you are referring to.

To answer your question, the past kifle-hager were not organized properly and not fairly,
but at least was not based on counting ethnic bones.
Before Hailesilasie re-organized regions, it used to be based on kingdoms,
YeShawa kindom, Gojjam kingdom, welega kingdom, Tigray kingdom, etc. just like other countries,
Yohannes used to be king of kings, Menelik used to be king of kings.
In fact, Menelik never assimilated Welega, Borena, etc. such as the areas where you find less Orthodox or no orthodox.

You are obsessed with Ginbot 7, calling them Abyssinians yeMenelik Sefariwoch, etc.
Birhanu Nega (Gurage), Andargachew Tsige Tufa(oromo), Efrem Madebo(kambata), Abebe Bogale(oromo), Dr Taddesse Birru Kersemo(Gurage), etc. where are Abyssinian yeMenelik settlers? where are you going to deport them?
half of yeMenelik military made up of Tulama oromos some of whom settled in Bale and in south, where are you going to deport them?
Because at the time... Gondar had its own king, wello had its own king, Gojjam had its own king,
therefore the recruitment for Menelik army must had been from Shewa and south,
which means most of yeMenelik neftgnas were oromos specially Tulamas, where are you deporting them?

You said... only Sidama people might be qualified for its own state, what about the rest? how come Harari? Benishangul? Gambella? Afar?, , Gurage population more than the above four put together, what about welayita, Hadiyas, etc. come on dont be selfish.
By the way... Gudifecha does not mean normal child adoption which you find in every society, I have two orphan teenage brother and sister in Ethiopia whom I adopted paying for their schooling, rent, food, clothing etc. this is normal, even animals adopt. the other day I watched on youtube a baby gazelle chased by a lioness for food but when the lioness realized that the gazelle was a baby, it did not eat it, for weeks adopted it, until another male lion ate it. Gudifecha is a system of expansion, when you win against your enemy oromonize them, go read the history of Hadiya kingdom, Sidama, etc. Even Menelik himself used to use Gudifecha system, Fitawarari Habte Giiorgis(aba mela) was captured from Gurage and adopted, promoted to all the way to king maker, he was in charge of the country during Zewditu era.

I am only for truth, justice and fairness, not against amara or any ethnic group. But whensomeone deliberately shuts his mind from the truth there is no point debating with him.
OK, lets make the assumption (right or wrong) that wayanes unilaterally created a state for amara in order to harm them. My question is which ethnic groups were consulted when the colonial kifle hager/ teklay gizat were divided and given to Abyssinian settlers for free after murdering or selling the local people? I am waiting an answer on this one.
The fundamental issue of the Oromo people with the terror group G7 and Minilik settlers is that not only do they want to restore those old colonial teklay gizats created by their old regimes but they deny the very right of the Abyssinian colonial subjects to rule themselves on their own land. G7 crossed this red line for all of colonial subjects, including Oromos and the southern people you mentioned.
I have no intention of interfering in the private love affair between Aby and G7, but the Oromo people will not take a chance with anyone who questions their sovereignty over their fatherland. That doesnt mean that the current borders are perfect or other states always have it better. Only the concept is correct. In fact, at least 1/2 of Oromo ancestral Oromo land is now given to other states (nearly all of the 9 Wallo Oromos warras, Metekel, Wabe Shaballe, Harar, Jijiga, Dire, to mention but a few). These areas and the border of Gonder must be discussed with people in border areas and the referendum must implemented immediately. At least 90% of the people of Metekel are ethnic oromos who live there for centuries but no one could stand up to Greater Tigray of Meles Zenawi. The biggest scandal of of all, our heart land, Finfinne was cut of from the rest of Oromia by fascist Meles, and the people systematically removed from their own fatherland by force.
Here, much to your credit, you raised the key point of recent settlements.
We took in millions of Somalis during their civil war 20 years ago and gave them shelter and food. The same people in collaboration with TPLF (ye ken joboch) turned against us and displaced one million of our citizens from our ancestral lands! So, these recent settlers should under no circumstance participate in a referendum. I am not from Welkait, but heard wayanes did the same thing there, moving in ethnic Tigres and settling on amara land (I could be wrong because i have never been to that area!!)
Regarding the southern nations, there are many considerations before you create a state. just because there are some people in an area proudly speaking some nice language doesnt qualify them for statehood. They must be in sufficiently large numbers of educated people in their own state to responsibly carry out the duties a government. Among them only the Sidama qualify for a statehood, if they wish to. The rest should join any larger state of their choice or jointly form a state. It would be a disaster if we form 80 small states.
The Gudifacha and Mogasa practices have served their purpose and are being abolished i.e. Oromos now practice Gudifacha only with other Oromos due to national security.
In short, yes to ethnic federalism, but it should be fair, no to "geographic federalism" because it is merely an attempt by the old snake to further encroach on other nations lands.

To the commenter,

Amhara people were not represented when the constitution was drafted 27 years ago,
who are you blaming?
you can not pick and choose the constitution, it is called cherry picking.
Other ethnics also pick and choose the constitution, discard the ones do not feed their agenda.
For example, we Amharas do not recognize the so called [Amhara region] made by dedebit woyane,
how can you tailor me a dress without measuring me? without consulting me? Amharas have been ignored as if they dont exist.

Look... woyane would have made afan oromo federal language along with Amharic decades ago if they are genuine.
As far as I know, no political organization oppose to afan oromo to be the federal language alongside with Amharic, including your arch enemy the G7.
Also, if the current inadequate ethnic federalism is obstacle to progress as the experiment has shown for the past 27 years, leading us to disaster endless conflict like in Somalia, let the people vote the future directions, not by a few ethnic extremists who determine the future of 100 million people. Meantime, let us focus on building democracy with Dr Abiy.

Even those Ethiopians who agree with ethnic federalism in principle or [on paper],
the current ethnic federalism was designed primarily to serve:
1) the dream of [greater Tigray],
2) woyanes to rule as long as possible,
3) to kill off what they call Amhara,
4) to milk the cow until the cow dried to death.

Basically [fake federalism]
Woyane created a large region called Benishangul or Ashangulit region which it used to be part of Gojjam and wollega, where the overwhelming residents are Amharas and Oromos.
If woyane created a large region for 200,000 population, not just the Ashangulit region but also Harari, Gambella, etc. but why denied Debub people? 56 ethnic groups crushed together like sardine, which is not fair.
When I grew up, Somali region was empty, half a million nomads here and there, not many in towns, right now we are hearing that Somali population in the region more than Tigray population, which means most of them came from main land Somalia which I dont have problem with it, but unfairness which I hate, there are Oromos and Amharas who lived in the region long before Somalia got independent from Europeans, a Somali refugee has more right there.

Which is why I said fake ethnic federalism. our beloved Gurage people are homeless in their own country, woyane committed unforgivable crimes against Gurage people, not only kicked them out of their livelihood known for entrepreneurship, but also divided them into pieces. The same goes to Sidama people, Wolayita people, Kambatas, Hadiyas, Konso, Gedeo, etc. Look at the crimes in Gambella, woyane imports Sudanese refugees to change the demography of indigenous people, similar to the Wolkaiet case.

By the way... there is a guy called Mikael on facebook from Finland, he is one of the few Ethiopians that I follow on facebook. He invited a Gurage singer called Melaku from south Africa to discuss the current unrest in Debub region, to be honest.. I was very angry with Mikael guy, he was insistently asking Melaku the historical background of Gurage people, why does it matter?, before Gragn Ahmed invasion you were xyz, after Gragn Ahmed invasion you became xyz, who gives a fuck?, Oromo scholars do not deny the fact that Oromos expanded through Gudifecha system, we all know that Amharas language and culture stolen by the rulers expanded through out, in the process many were Amharanized. In Somalia there are Bantu Somalis, Garre Somalis who used to be Oromos, Yebir Somalis who had Jewish background, Barawan Somalis Yemeni background, Habesha background some in Somaliland, Indian background, etc etc. who cares? today they are all Somalis. The same goes to... Gurages are Gurages end of story!
Usually Mikael guy is good, a bit arrogant but calm guy, myself as Amhara activist, one of the guys I like on facebook, but this time he pissed me off, he kept on quoting from a book/s written by xyz, etc. what makes someone is educated, after reading a book, analyze it, digest it and make sense of it. Dont swallow every book you read, the writer could be politically motivated like Tesfaye Gebre-abb, or the writer did not make enough research, perhaps emotionally actuated rather than reason, etc.

The terrorist G7 is the number one national security threat to Oromia, far worse than TPLF, and should be destroyed rather than invited to the palace. Oromo should never allow G7 members walk freely in Oromia.

Hell with your bull s**t constitution that forbids the language of the majority to be spoken in parliament. The oromo people would rather separate from Ethiopia entirely if they can not speak their own language in their own city and government except the language of colonial settlers language. If there is any Oromo MP who speaks any other language than afan oromo in all official government business he will be sent back to his district. This is valid for the celebrated Aby Ahmed as well. If not he should move to another state and get elected from there. After 2020 general election the State of Oromia will require a mandatory fluency in afaan oromo from an elected prime minister.

The third commenter below,

The constitution says the federal working language is Amharic,
therefore, the federal parliamentarians communicate in Amharic,
there are few parliamentarians specially representing minority ethnic groups, may not speak Amharic, which is fine, thanks to technology multilingual automatic translator.

Language is not our enemy, it is an advantage. As Amhara activist, I have been campaigning Amhara people to learn afan Oromo, once afan oromo is spoken nationwide... oromo nationalism gradually will evaporate. The fact that I was born in an area where afan oromo is the dominant language followed by Amharic and somali, it has helped me a lot as Amhara activist, my background has made me who I am. I dont see the world black and white like some ethnic nationalists or chauvinists expect me to be. I will continue to fight for innocent Amhara people until tribalism is eradicated.

By the way, the newly founded Amhara organization in Bahirdar, should support to team Gedu and team Lemma or Dr Abiy. All we want is ethiopiawinnet based on equality and justice for all.
However, the struggle will continue, as newly formed Amhara organization, start your job from Amhara region. There are thousands of jobs to do, your first job should be... to identify cadres in ANDM(Beaden), put pressure on Gedu and Dr Abiy to get rid of Bereket, Hilawi yosef, Alemnew Mekonnen, Kebede Chanie, etc. replaced by bright progressive young leadership who may or may not be members of the party.
The newly formed Amhara organization should take Welkaiet agenda as the center of its struggle,
also, being a voice for displaced Amhara people,
working with scholars to correct the poisonous propaganda spread against Amhara people,
also, hold Gedus administration accountable by exposing corruption, etc.
sometimes in the future this new Amhara organization can be transformed into opposition party participating in an election. Meantime, do the job in front of you.

By the way... when Amhara people are displaced from other regions, do not travel to Bahirdar or Gondar.
First, contact the regional president in the area, if that is not possible, contact the federal government in Addis.
For example, if you are displaced from Oromia zones, contact Ato Lemma administration, if no result.. contact federal government.
Please do not go to Gedu, there is a reason for that.... other ethnics may get the wrong impression that all Amhara people belong to Amhara region.
For example, I am Amhara from south Oromia, my president is Lemma, not Gedu. If I have a problem.. I submit my compliant to Lemma.
The same applies to Oromos in Wollo, complain their problem to Gedu, if no result.. complain to federal government.

Those racists do not represent 99% of our blood Oromo people,
these are less than 1% dikala Gallas who need Menelik name to trade, their game is over!
have you ever heard them producing new ideas other than repeating the usual name?
they have none!, all they do is... wait to oppose something, even if you agree with them 110%,
now that Dr Abiy is popular among all sides, this is a pain to them, they want others to oppose him so that they can trade. Dr Abiy is too advanced for your little village game, he has a bigger fish to fry.
