“The self-determination of all oppressed nations in the empire must be part of the Oromo liberation movement, which wants to foster the mainly Cushitic Ethiopia, the country which actually stretches from Meroe to Mombasa, even though there are some non-Cushitic nations also living in the area. Such renaissance of the Cush nations in the region must be the true Ethiopian renaissance in contrast to the further Abyssinian domination going on under the rule of Meles Zenawi; the Ethiopian renaissance is now wrongly described to be the same as a further Abyssinian domination like what is going on under his rule.”
