This was a glimpse of what happened today at TPLF meeting. Three of the concerned oromo arrested so far. But as Oromo community leader end up been on side with TPLF by saying we are not taking a part of this protest. Abbaa duulaa didn't have answers to the pictures presented to him it was harmless no one was there to hurt anyone but speak their mind to those who are silencing our people.

February 1, 2015 (GiDira Vs EbiSa – Facebook) — It reminds me one of those employee appreciation day when your
higher boss decide to treat you for your countless contributions. Then comes your immediate boss making sure that every employee is available to the meeting with their best behavior and with presentable dress code. You sit behaved around the table gazing at your host with tension and confusion, best represented by Alemayehu. Or, You may be unfortunate enough to have a sit next to a host and it becomes your duty to keep the conversations going. Then You face that uncomfortable moment when your host struggle to hear your shy and low tuned voice, best represented by the guy who rub his hair. Or, here you are, the guy with glasses, on the verge of dying of boredom. You look for any venue to get away from that area and desperate enough to consider escaping through a roof.
On a serious note, I believe individuals have the right to meet up with anyone they choose. However, the decision to have almost every crew at the same place and at the same time must have come from OMN higher ranking officials. I would hope that would be either Executive Director, Board of Trustee or Editorial Board or well…
Here is the biggest catch; these are supposedly independent and free minded journalists who would potentially report the wrong doing of an official leading a country with current, real time, reputation of abusing human rights. After this treats how would you think their reporting is not compromised?
Personally, I am still in denial that this in fact has happened. It will take me time to comprehend and to convince myself that people who are responsible for killing our little brothers and sisters less than a year ago are sitting and feasting with us.
