The Big Picture IV (Update 28.08.12)

The Big Picture III


Together, the EMLO-SBEGO, the Duet and Quartet solution will be worked out by the “big“international and local political players. Let us hope it will end up at least in an open democratic space so that Ethiopia could at last find its Peace and political stability for a harmonious economic & cultural development, it long deserved in Africa! – The local players thereby not losing sight of the big picture of our Ethiopian national interest. – I.e. The continuity of the Ethiopian Statehood.

Before the solution, the following months will be full of

The Duet and Quartet games”.

Who are the “big players” and opinion makers in this play? –  Individuals & “personalities” on which a lot depends. -The fate of the immediate future of the Ethiopian Nation and State.

BEWARE; without WISDOM and the VISION beyond sectional interests, it is ALL Ethiopians, who will be the losers.

Let us hope that it will be a peaceful game!

Oromo Dialogue Forum: A statement on the passing away of Prime Minister Meles Zenawi


“The political crisis in Ethiopia today is not just an ideological one; it is neither a preference between democracy and dictatorship, nor a choice between poverty and development. Ethiopia’s ills run deeper. At its core is the way successive rulers have treated the peoples of Ethiopia as only subjects with obligations to the state, instead of citizens with rights. The problem is rooted in a lack of societal consensus on the character and ownership of the Ethiopian state. The specter of armed struggle, repression, secrecy, and political conflict will not end until, and unless, this lack of legitimacy of state power in Ethiopia is addressed. This entails not only reasonably meeting the aspirations of the oppressed nationalities but also the desire to maintain the country’s unity. And we believe dialogue offers the best route out of the crises. Vengeance invites vengeance, and the cycle will continue without end. To break this vicious cycle of violence that had besieged us for many years, we should start a new era of negotiated settlement and bring about a peaceful resolution to our common problems. There cannot be unilateral solutions, military or civil, to our political problems either by the opposition or the government.”
