At a meeting in Seattle, Washington, on November 12, 2011, Obbo Amin Jundi, the Secretary General of the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF), squashes the Oromo national liberation movement’s misrepresentation as a ‘secessionist’ or a ‘separatist’ movement. He reiterated that “neither the Oromo nation nor the Oromo national liberation movement has a secessionist agenda.”
It’s known that the enemy wages a war on the Oromo people to discredit their legitimate struggle for freedom and independence by labeling it a ‘secessionist’ or a ‘separatist’ movement (or tegentay in Amharic).
