Abstract:This article is written by the founder of the Oromo Studies Association (OSA). It emphasizes the plight of the Oromo people, especially in Ethiopia, and addresses the issue of how the OSA can play a role in making the world community aware of Oromo aspirations and grievances. The author is asking members of the OSA to assume a strategic role in aiding the Oromo people to develop and bring out into the open their spiritual, philosophical, and legal heritage. This will contribute to their empowerment as well as their political equality. The OSA can provide a basis for others to make connections and engage public intellectuals to help shape the future of the Oromo people. Bibliogr., notes. [ASC Leiden abstract]
