World Policy On Air is a podcast from the pages and website of World Policy Journal.
The recent protests by members of the marginalized Oromo ethnic group in Ethiopia have origins in the fight to expel Italian colonialists from the country in the late 19th century. On today’s episode of World Policy On Air, Mohammed Ademo, founding editor of OPride.com, discusses why history books must be rewritten to properly recognize the Oromo people’s contributions to Ethiopian independence, nationalism, and culture.
Read Mohammed Ademo and Hassen Hussein’s piece, “Ethiopa’s original sin,” in the fall issue of World Policy Journal.
