the Annual Oromo Civil Resistance Day

Titlethe Annual Oromo Civil Resistance Day
Group NameAdvocacy for Oromia Association in Victoria Australia
DescriptionWELCOME TO THE OROMIAN CIVIL RESISTANCE DAY 2014 According to the Oromian Calender, November 09, is the annual Oromo Civil resistance Day in which the Oromo youth commemorates the peaceful struggle against subjugation. Nationalists in Oromia and around the globe commemorate the popular student uprising known as Fincila Diddaa Gabrummaa (meaning Revolt Against Subjugation) that broke out on November 09, 2005 following the failed national 'election' of 2005 in which the Oromo was denied any meaningful representation. The Oromo Civil resistance is a peaceful way for ordinary Oromo people to fight for their rights, freedom and justice without using violence. The Oromo people engaged in civil resistance use diverse tactics, such as strikes, boycotts, mass demonstrations and other actions, to cause wide-ranging social, political and economic change. Around the world, the Oromo civil resistance has been called by different names—FDG- Fincila Diddaa Garbummaa, Diddaa Ummataa, Diddaa, Falmii Karaa Nagaa, which means nonviolent struggle, non-violent struggle against subjugation, people power, political defiance, and civic mobilization—but regardless of which term is used, the fundamental dynamics of civil resistance remain essentially the same. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJRoZ5RXeIE
