African Union Government (AUG), what a nice vision!!! Read the outcome of the AU submit in Accra here: http://www.myjoyonline.com/politics/200707/6271.asp
If it will be realized, it is to promote:
1- national liberation
of oppressed nations like liberation of Oromia, Amhara..etc from Tyranny and Weyane's looting,
2- regional integration
of disharmonious regions like integration of the region called Ethiopia or Horn of Africa in which autonomous Oromia, Amhara, Tigrai..etc are the parts and
3- continental unity
of the whole Africa on the way to forge the Uniterd States of Africa (USAfrica) which in the long term will be the union of genuine nation-states like Oromia, Amhara...etc, not that of the current artificial-states (construed by european colonialists) like Ethiopia, Eritrea, Keniya...etc.
Concerning the AU Government, read here the final proposal from the Pan African Parlament (PAP) http://www.pambazuka.org/aumonitor/imag ... l_2007.pdf
Africa will be one country and the current 54 national states will be reduced to the status of only federal states: http://unitedstatesafrica.tripod.com/
The expected process is to forge Africa with:
- one transcontinental citizenship
- one currency
- one defence force
- one foreign department
- one policy of foreign trade
- one centeral government managing the above
- one pan-African parlament
- one African court of law
- univisum = people without border as Africans used to live before 1885 Scramble for Africa
- free from legacy of colonialism such as artificial borders which devided for eg. Oromos in to two, Tigarus in to two, Afars in to three, Somalis in to five...etc and slowly forge a working inter-Africa federal states. At the begining the 54 current African countries will be the federal states in USAfrica.
What is the impact for us "Ethiopians"? First Ethiopia will be one of the federal states and slowly it will be changed to the fact that national states like Oromia, Tigrai, Amhara, Afar, Somalia ...etc will be the autonomous federal states in a USAfrica.
So the question to be asked is: why should Amharas cry for centeralization of Ethiopia and Oromos for secession of Oromia?? Both these movements are against the movement and policy of forging USAfrica.
I think CUD and OLF leaders who formed AFD are such far-sighted, so that they agreed to struggle for the common agendas like Freedom and Democracy giving up their illusion of eg. desmantling Oromia and decolonizing Oromia respectively.
Let's all take this vision of AFD and fight against Weyane fascists to forge first a democratic and integrated Ethiopia with a genuine autonomy of Oromia, Amharai, Tigrai, Afar, Somali...etc to pave the way for USAfirca as described above.
