What: 4th Annual International Human Rights Conference presented by OACC

When: Saturday October 17th, 2009

Time: 3:00 – 7:00 PM

Where: University of Minnesota, Coffman Union 300 Washington Ave Se, Minneapolis, MN 55455.

Topic: What’s next for the Oromo People: an Input from Oromo Political Organizations?

Oromos residing in Ethiopia, the Horn of Africa, and around the world have profound ideas and ideologies about our rights, freedom, democracy, self determination, peace, human rights, and the past, present or the future state of our beings. Most organizations (political and non political) have raised their voices and concerns through leading or attempting to lead us to a certain destination. The journey and destination has not always been clearly defined, fairly justified, or visibly illustrated to the Oromos and the rest of the world.

The OACC (Oromo American Citizen Council) will provide an avenue to illustrate the stance of all organizations represented during our 4th Annual International OACC Human Rights Conference that will be held on October 17th, 2009 at the University of Minnesota.
