Palestinian Refugees, The Nation, And The Shifting Political Landscape, Randa Farah Dec 2012

Palestinian Refugees, The Nation, And The Shifting Political Landscape, Randa Farah

Randa R Farah Dr.

This article briefly examines the historical causes that led to the uprooting of the Palestinians in 1948, who today represent one of the longest and largest refugee situations in contemporary history. It then draws on field research on refugees in Jordan to trace some of the pertinent political and ideological shifts since the Palestinian Nakba.

Promoting And Developing Oromummaa, Asafa Jalata

Asafa Jalata

There is a clear conventional understanding among all Oromo branches and individuals on these issues. The Oromo national movement has gradually expanded the essence and meaning of Oromummaa. The colonization of the Oromo and the disruption of their collective identity and the repression and exploitation of Oromo society have increased the commitment of some ...

The Oromo: Toward A Psychology Of Liberation And Oromo Empowerment, Asafa Jalata

Asafa Jalata

Today the Oromo people are facing a monumental national crisis that requires urgent recognition and resolution. The Tigrayan-led Ethiopian government has clearly recognized the potential of the Oromo nation and is determined to destroy and/or suppress it by engaging in state terrorism and genocidal massacres, conducting mass arrests, violating human rights, and eliminating opposition leaders and their potential successors while replacing them with Afaan Oromo speaking nafxanyas (colonial settlers) and collaborative Oromo individuals. The current regime has been expropriating Oromo economic resources – including land – and transferring them to Tigrayans and their regional and global capitalist supporters. This regime has ...

Oromummaa As The Master Ideology Of The Oromo National Movement, Asafa Jalata Jun 2008

Oromummaa As The Master Ideology Of The Oromo National Movement, Asafa Jalata

Asafa Jalata

Oromummaa, as an element of culture, nationalism, and vision, has the power to serve as a manifestation of the collective identity of the Oromo national movement. The foundation of Oromummaa must be built on overarching principles that are embedded within Oromo traditions and culture and, at the same time, have universal relevance for all oppressed peoples. The main foundations of Oromummaa are individual and collective freedom, justice, popular democracy, and human liberation all of which are built on the concept of saffu (moral and ethical order) and are enshrined in gada principles. Although, in recent years, many Oromos have become ...

In the process, the Oromo diaspora emerged on the world stage. Whereas the old African diaspora lived under racial slavery and ...
