Ethiopia: Oromia state rocked by protests and killings amid a 3-day market boycott


(OPride)—Ethiopia is rocked by widespread protests and reports of killings as a three-day stay at home strike and market boycott continues for the second day across the restive Oromia State. However, despite the widespread protests and near-universal observance of the market strike, there have been limited reports of clashes and disturbances. The Qeerroo—a youth cohort behind the boycott plan—and the Oromia police have been credited for ensuring peaceful and orderly protests on the first day. Its well-received coverage of the ongoing stay-at-home protest and market boycott came amid criticisms over the network’s silence on the plight of Oromo political prisoners.
