Okay, then I assmue that their demand is open-ended, otherwise there must be some stated goal (target) which should be used as a guiding principle in all the actions and reactions to be undertaken along the way.somali-prince wrote:Ato defend,
The demand of qeero goes beyond abiy ahmed I assume. I met a good oromo friend of mine at starbucks earlier and we had a good chat. He is a staunch supporter of the qeero and believes that those properties destroyed were ill gotten riches which should be destroyed. That is his own words. I usually tend to stand with the truth, as much as I support qeeros and overall oromo demand for greater justice and rule of law, nevertheless, burning properties be it commercial and residential that belong to tigreys and somalis would only exacerbate the already tense and hostile situation between the different ethnic groups.
Earlier today, a property built on a road reserve by the former first lady of nigeria was demolished. But the difference is that it was ordered by a court with the right jurisdiction. It listened to both arguments and finally made the decision. Qeeros should wait for the right time when the country achieves total democracy backed by strong and independent judiciary which I strongly believe is mirage.
These youth could have done themselves better if they tried to make themselves productive citizens. They chant the whole day on the streets and when they got hungery they must go home and look for something to eat. Did they think about how that came about?
I read about some of them who were chanting before some years and now turned refugees, and started their violence in Europe too. But there they have to be taught how to act responsibily. Those are looked after well to learn how to behave responsibily, and the violence has subdued there by now.
In Ethiopia the so called Oromia police will be held accountable if what you called "independent judiciary" is to come about.
If you are young and not productive, then you are doomed to be a burden on someone down the road. Those in power can leave and retire and go somewhere but the people whose property is being destroyed today will have to pay for it for generations to come.
Those who are orcahsterating such actions must be enemy of the people!
