Oromo Refugees and Asylum Seekers

Refugees from Ethiopia are fleeing from horrendous human rights abuses because of their real and perceived opposition to the EPRDF government. These abuses have been regularly documented by the Oromia Support Group (see, for example, the recently published information given at interview by 60 refugees in South Africa – http://www.oromo.org/OSG/pr_49.pdf).

The Oromo asylum seekers flee from their country of origin due to a well-founded fear of persecution by the Ethiopian authorities, because of their nationality, or political affiliation to an opposition group. They are not economic migrants or a threat to any country’s security.
