Les préoccupations majeures du peuple Afar en Éthiopie

Posted on by 0 comment

20 Avril, 2018

En Éthiopie, les subtilités politiques en cours ont suscité un certain optimisme aspirant à une réforme démocratique. En effet, le Premier ministre, Dr. Abiy Ahmed, a prononcé un discours rassembleur et inspirant lors de son investiture. Les promesses qu’il a faites ainsi que la libération partielle des prisonniers politiques ont été reçues comme un indice encourageant influent sur les demandes publiques dans tout le pays. Néanmoins, la suppression immédiate de l’état d’urgence, la libération de tous les prisonniers politiques et l’initiation d’un dialogue de réconciliation nationale figurent parmi les principales attentes à court terme. Les réformes structurelles des institutions, y compris la sécurité, la justice, le comité électoral et l’ouverture politique pourraient être parmi les vagues suivantes des réformes pour la paix et la stabilité durable, ainsi que la prospérité inclusive en Éthiopie.

April 09, 2018

At the dawn of the reforms promised by the Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed, the Afar People’s Party would like to bring the disappearance of Mr Rashid Saalih to the attention of Afar people and international community.

Mr Rashid Saalih, an employee of Samara University, has been kidnapped by federal security forces four months ago and his whereabouts are unknown. Mr Rashid is known as a very decent person who has challenged the corruption and looting of the resources of Samara University. Information indicates that his disappearance might be linked to the exposure of the sources of the alleged fire at the main storage building of Samara University on 29 December 2016. Those who know the internal structure of corruption at the university testified that the motive of the fire has been to cover up the unfolding of fraud and mismanagement of the university’s budget.

Condolences and Solidarity message to Bishoftu Massacre

Posted on by 0 comment

 October 4, 2016

Afar People’s Party is dismayed by the mass killing of our Oromo brothers in Bishoftu, while celebrating the Irrecha seasonal holyday. This act of state-terror and coward action on civilian population is a testimony for that the Woyane regime is falling apart and the situation is getting out of its control. It’s time to make sense of the causes, the causes that people are scarifying their lives for all over the country. Many heroic Ethiopians have been killed, prisoned, tortured and driven from their homes because they merely voiced their grievances and said No to social injustice and said Yes for human dignity.

The solidarity message to current popular uprising in Ethiopia

Posted on by 0 comment

The current popular uprising in Ethiopia indicates that the country is in a grave political crisis. The determinants for the ongoing turmoil are social injustice and the politics of marginalization implemented by the ruling EPRDFs minority regime. The unremitting Oromo protest has been going for nine months, and this torch for justice is now burning all over Ethiopia and most recently in Gonder and elsewhere. The civilian popular quest for justice and equality has been retorted by bullet and many of our Ethiopian brothers has been massacred.

The Denied National Election and its Mockery in Ethiopia

Posted on by 0 comment

The Afar People`s Party (APP) would like to draw your attention to the fifth national election intended to take place in May 2015 Ethiopia.  In all its earlier cases the attempt to promote democracy through free and fair elections failed due to government harassments, arrests and killings, cover up by the systematic fraud managed by the ruling TPLF-led government. Thus, the result of the coming artificial election is known long before the election was carried out. The future democratic direction of the nation remains gloomy since the current regime has opted for non-competitive and oppressive sinister manoeuvre to cling into power. This critical situation in Ethiopia is well-known both inside the country and beyond. The shrinking democratic space, human rights abuse and unequal distribution of wealth and power in the country have raised the international concern. As a result most of international organizations have declined to participate as observers of the election.
