  1. The TPLF/EPRDF regime of Ethiopia exports spies and thugs to diaspora via Washington DC to harass and weaken the organizational capacity of Oromos/Ethiopians in diaspora. It is becoming very common in Washington DC to see Ethiopia’s surveillance against Oromo(Ethiopians)American Citizens in action. The government uses poor, illiterate and semi literate collaborators; pays them salaries in US dollars, puts them in suits and Hondas, and decent housing in DC, Virginia and Maryland so they can conduct surveillance on the North American Oromo/Ethiopia people. These spies have attempted and occasionally succeeded in infiltrating Oromo/Ethiopian institutions all over the Washington DC area. They lurk within these institutions and sabotage them and also sabotage events planned by community organizations.
    Oromo Center, located in Northwest Washington DC, is infested with Ethiopian government spy network and collaborators. By justifying it as being inclusive and welcoming to all Oromos, some of the Oromo Center leaders have granted access to agents of Ethiopian government who use the Center’s basement to organize and plan actions to weaken the Oromo/Ethiopian diaspora. As part of a propaganda and espionage work conducted by the agents sent by Ethiopian government, heads of these spy networks and mafias such as Dasalegn Taferra, Berhanemeskel and Cherer conduct espionage and seminars on behalf of the Ethiopian government in Oromo Center’s basement.
