The long-standing quest of our people for democratic self-rule has been one of the key demands that undergirded major changes in Ethiopia over the past sixty years. While the movements that led to changes in governments have not transformed the state of the Oromo question, they have however brought the Oromo issue to the mainstream agenda in Ethiopian political life.
However, over the past few years, confusion regarding the main agenda and agency of the OLA has been equally pervasive. Illumination is thus needed on these key issues and regarding the way forward. To clarify some of these matters of concern, a short piece titled A Brief Political Manifesto: from Armed Struggle to the Prospect for Peace is hereby published.
