    Dear OSA leaders and members
    Thank you for all the delibration this time. I am always grateful of his honourable Dr Trumen. It seems all points are applicable but, ;please try to focus on the ways to merge oromo resistance a d libration forces. There is no miracle for us, unless these forces come together. It is also good to rebring the oromo issue to international community but, they are already binlded by their own advantages. Last but not least please use professional camera, video man to record your historic meetings.GALATOOMAA!

    Oromo, at the OSA Mid year Confrence 2012, no one person said anything about the Oromo problem solutions or any hints, suprisingly, like the Haabashaa Daptara over & over again what was said 3-4 years ago & before the TPLF Government is the Mafia Government, the gross human rights violation by TPLF……… For the questions what is the soutions for all these probles, the answer was OSA doesn’t tell the solutions & the OSA objective is introduce only the problem what was said on that Confrence, laughable ! Oromo what you said ” please try to focus on the ways to merge oromo resistane and Liberation forces “. ………………unless these forces come together there is no miracle for us. Realy I admire the points you bring to the leaders and members of OSA attention at this time when our enemy uses beyond & above anythings to destroy the oromo unity & organizations, as a result to occupay / Colonise /Oromia forever and exploit its natural as well as human resources without any boundaries or limitation. Oromo, ingnore about the attention of International Community at this time when we are divided & weak ourselves, because when we become United & stronger the Internation Community will pay attention whether it likes or not. Galatoomaa.

    Oromos need a satalite stateion such as Oromo national TV which can be watched in Austrilia, Canada and America and Uk to tell their story, to inform the world and an outlet where they can express their culture.
