Day 40 of Hunger Strike


After consistent lobbying efforts by elders and notable personalities, Jawar Mohammed, Bekele Gerba and Hamza Borana have agreed to discontinue the hunger strike. The political prisoners will end their hunger strike today at 6:00 PM.1

Although they ended their 40 day hunger strike today, their demands have NOT been met. We MUST continue pushing until their demands are met.

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.
