Thirsting for True Democracy in the Dry Desert of Dictatorship

one victim among Oromo University Students
In the most documentary films, especially on the National Geography, I always see when animals are eaten by crocodiles. During the dry season, most animals lost their lives on searching for their thirsty. Similarly, in dictator’s country, most people have been eaten by dictator’s gun and prison while they were searching for true democracy.

Likely, the Ethiopian Security Forces=TPLF(Tgrai Liberation Front or Woyane) has been eating and again sharpening their jaws to eat democracy craving Ethiopians, particularly, the Oromos, under the darkness of pseudo-democracy. In Ethiopia, both Ethiopian people and constitution are jailed at stand. It looks like a rich man who has only one leg that somebody is beating and breaking his leg to easily steal his properties.

On the other hand, in Ethiopia, both media and journalist are properties of Ethiopian ‘government’. It is not allowed to anybody to speak his/her and people’s mind, but only ‘government’s’ or groups  owned gun plus power’s mind. I think, it is easy to only speak other’s mind for a parrot, but not for humans. We have been learning in modern universities. But, we couldn’t practice modernity in backward regulations. Dictators believe in gun and force, but if mind is there, a little boy can ride a horse…  

Why Ethiopian University students have been yelping for true democracy since Hailesillassie Regime or 1950s? Nowadays, why Oromo University Students and intellectuals are being killed, arrested, tortured, and dismissed? Why to being an Oromo and journalist is the worst situation in Ethiopia? Why Oromo students are being ‘firewood’s’ for Woyane’s firearms? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6V2QLA-nRt0&noredirect=1 
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-27251331 Purposely, why killing, arresting, torturing, exiling, land grabbing, dismissal, etc. are targeted to Oromos? According to 2014 Amnesty International Report, since 2011, at least 5,000 Oromos have been suffering in Ethiopian prison.http://www.amnesty.org/en/library/info/AFR25/006/2014/en many people estimate that at least 20,000-25,000 Oromos arrested in Ethiopia since 1991. In a country of 80 different ethnic groups-Ethiopia, more than 90%, prisons occupied by Oromos.
