Subject: ALERT! Systematic Ethnic Cleansing on indigenous Harari Natives

17

Date: March 10, 2021

This letter is written to alert and request of intervention to the global community and organizations about the ill intention of two political parties in Ethiopia that are engaged in Systematic Ethnic Cleansing on Indigenous Harari People by violating the affirmative action set by law to safeguard them from extinction.

The three political parties dangerous course to eradicate the Indigenous Harari People are:

1) Prosperity Party (The unelected ruling party of Ethiopia)

2) Freedom and Equality Party (A political party with a hidden agenda to nullify Hararies)

Background Information

Hararies are an indigenous minority ethnic group who lived for over 36 thousand years in The Horn of Africa. Emirate of Harar was an independent country which had 87 kings and queens, who melted their own coin money of gold and silver. Indigenous Harari natives had their own unique agriculture terracing system, book binding technology, taxation and judiciary institutions. The city of Harar has over 2000 year old brick-houses with a unique indigenous architect. The City of Harar, the fourth holiest city of Islam (after Mecca, Medina, & Jerusalem), which is commonly called Mecca of East Africa & ‘Madinatul Awliaa’ is recognized by UNESCO as a world heritage center [1]. In 1935 League of Nation recognized Emirate of Harar and its territory (borders) before it was annexed by Ethiopia in January 7, 1887 [2].

 

Harari Affirmative Action

‘Harari Affirmative Action’ was established to develop social, economic, and political polices that promote preservation of Harari history, culture, language, and religion. ‘Harari Affirmative Action’ was also established to preserve the indigenous Harari natives from extinction (due to natural circumstances) and safeguard them from manmade extermination actions such as genocide, ethnic cleansing, assimilation and systematic eradication. It suffices to mention some of the international and local Ethiopian laws and percolations that enforce adherence to ‘Harari Affirmative Action’. For example, The Constitution of Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia [3], The constitution of Harari Regional State [4], National Election Board of Ethiopia Proclamation [5], United Nations Declaration to protect the Rights of those who belong to National or Ethnic, Religious, and Linguistic Minorities [6], United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples [7], Global Genocide Watch [8].

 

How Harari Affirmative Action works?

Harari Regional State has 36 parliament seats. Out of the 36, 14 parliament seats (38.89%) are reserved for Harari political parties and independent candidates of indigenous Harari natives under the ‘Harari affirmative Action’; whereas 22 parliament seats (61.11%) are open for all non-Harari political parties and independent candidates of Harari Regional State residents.

In the last five elections held in Ethiopia, the rules and regulations of ’Harari Affirmative Actions’ were respected by all political parties, independent institutions, and local and federal government bodies. As a result, peace, prosperity and tranquility prevailed in the region and the City of Harar was awarded “The Peace City of The World” prize [9] by UNESCO.

The manifestation of entities that are plotting to exterminate the indigenous Harari natives & the “Harari Affirmative Action”

The sixth national election of Ethiopia will be held in couple of month. The two political parties mentioned above issued political statement stating that they don’t accept and abide the “Harari Affirmative Action” stipulated in the constitutions of both the federal government and Harari regional State, and the proclamation of United Nation rectified to preserve and safeguard the identity on indigenous people and right of minorities. These hostile non-Harari political parties, want to satisfy their hunger for power by illegally taking over the 14 parliament seats reserved for Harari political parties and independent candidates of indigenous Harari natives under the ‘Harari affirmative Action’.

The adverse effect of these hostile non-Harari political parties will not only deprive indigenous Harari native’s self-rule, but also will make the indigenous Harari natives venerable to extinction and give easy access to those who intend to commit genocide, ethnic cleansing and systematic extermination of the indigenous Harari natives. The move of these hateful entities will destabilize the region and the city known for its peace for centuries. The action of these hate mongers will push the indigenous Harari natives to defend their right which might lead to violence.

We ask these destructive and selfish political parties to desist form their shameful action that opens the Pandora box of regional quagmire. We also ask the international communities to intervene and defend the right of the minority indigenous Harari natives. We also request worldwide Hararies to do everything in their disposal to stop the bigots who want to exterminate the indigenous Harari natives and override the Harari Affirmative Action.

  1. The Harrari Affirmative Action (ልዩ ጥቅም) was granted based on the assumption that Harrar was home to all ethnicities where all ethnicities get treated equally by the Harrar administrators.

    The Harrari Affirmative Action ( ልዩ ጥቅም) was initially granted to save the ethnic Harrari (Adere) from extinction based on the low population the Harraris claimed to have in Ethiopia at the time with the majority living in the diaspora fleeing red terror, at the time when the action was granted in the 1990s the hope TPLF had was Aderes will only marry Aderes to save their endangered species from extinction and the diaspora Aderes will go back to their own country Ethiopia to contribute to the growth of the Adere population count .
    At the time in the early 1990s right around when TPLF took over the country while dividing the country by ethnicity , the Harrari League (Harrari intellectuals) strongly argued more than half of the Harraris (Aderes) were living in the diaspora and Harrari (Adere) ethnicity is near extinction , had benefited from this Affirmative Action (ልዩ ጥቅም) ever since.

    • ይህ የሐራሪ ልዩ ጥቅም (Harrari’s Affirmative Action) የአናሳ ብሔረሰቦችን ማንነት በማስከበር ረገድ ውጤት ከማስመዝገቡም በላይ ፤ በተጨማሪም ዶ/ር ሚኒስትር ዱሪ መሀመድ የነደፉት የኢትዮጵያ ኢኮኖሚ እድገት ፖሊሲ በቅፅበት ተሳክቶ የኢትዮጵያ ኢኮኖሚ ሁለት አሀዞች (Double Digits) እድገት ማስመዝገብም እንዲጀምር አስችሎታል።

  2. “In 1935 League of Nation recognized Emirate of Harar and its territory (borders) before it was annexed by Ethiopia in January 7, 1887 [2].” What does it mean? When was the League of Nations established and also as you said that annexed by Ethiopia. It does not give a sense. ተበላክ ተበላክ ወንድሜ. It is contradictory.

    • First of all the 10 Ethiopian region are all governed by their own ethnic groups. Why is it Hararies cannot govern thier own rigion? Eventhghou they are the one who has been in this land indigenous and who brought civilization,prosperity and peace?????. It has been said that they are minorities. But if you want to learn more about Harires they are allover Ethiopia and you know that unless you want to mislead.

    At that time in the early 1990’s the economy of Ethiopia should have grown triple digits not double digits, with the amount of money that went to Ethiopia from outside Ethiopia and the low cost of living and low wages and low population count and vast available natural resources Ethiopia had at the time.

  7. Where is Dr Asheme Tofic, the second man of TPLF’s , next to Getachew Asfa. Can the Adere’s organization in Canada help to find to where about this dangerous man?

    • What makes me dangerous? I have done no crime. Giving medical help to whoever that needs it, is my professional obligation, giving medical care to TPLF members is not a crime. I was not working for INSA or the TPLF security apparatus in any other way than just as a medical care giver.

      For your information I was at the recent public demonstrations in Canada and you will find me in Australia on the19th, do not try to make it look like I am hiding because I am not. Just because I travel around the globe a lot for work and do not have time to attend regular social gatherings at one location , it doesn’t mean I am hiding.

  8. We the women and the children of Harrar support this action. The Shariya family law should not be allowed to govern the whole Harrar state. No more Shariya family law ruling the state of Harrar.

  9. One person one vote. I am a thrid generation Amhara who lives in Harar. I should have equal voice like you

  10. It would have been beter if Adere men stand for Adere women’s rights. Because women suffered a lot. women aged between 14 and 30 have undergone female genital mutilation & stiching their private parts must be stopped now. This is barbaric act. Adere men need to grow up.

  11. Great news to hear today that Getachew Asfa is dead. Now, Asheme Hamed Tufic, the second man in charge of TPLF secreat service, who is responsible for many innocent Ethiopians death is hiden in Canada in Adere community. It is a matter of time, he will face justice. In this information world with such crime,he will not live that long.

  12. During the red terror time Minase Woldegiorgis the now Aba Dula Gamada was in Harrar hiding from Derg. At the time Minase Woldegiorgis AKA Aba Dulla Gamada tried his best to cover his identity by pretending to be an Adere born and raised in Harrar to cover his anti-Derg activities, by serving at many capacities in Adere people’s homes in Harrar. The Aderes used him as a slave overworked him , abused him ,sodomized him , and thy threatened him to give him up to the authorities, he held grudges about that all throughout his life. Aderes in Harrar or outside Harrar need to watch our back because Aba Dulla Gamada is slowly criping behind our back as a payback for his misfortune while he was hiding from derg in Harrar so many decades ago
