Day 35 of Hunger Strike


Jawar Mohammed, Bekele Gerba, Hamza Borana and other Oromo political prisoners are on the 35th day of their hunger strike. They are all in critical condition.

#Update: Jawar Mohammed, Bekele Gerba and Hamza Borana have been transferred to Landmark Private Hospital since March 2, 2021. Their transfer came after the Federal Supreme Court Cassation Bench reversed the Supreme Court decision and upheld previous decision by the Federal High Court to grant access to private medical facility.


1. Release All Oromo Political Prisoners.

2. Allow Oromo political party offices to be opened and to operate fully.

3. End mistreatment of families of political prisoners while they visit their loved ones at Kaliti Prison and elsewhere
