A number of Ethiopian migrants held a protest in Valletta this morning calling on Malta and the EU to stop support to Ethiopian regime and its plan to displace Oromo farmers. 

The group of some 40 migrants called for freedom and justice in their country.

Late last year, the Ethiopian army evicted Oromo farmers from their ancestral land on the pretext of needing the land for an industrial zone.

The practice has continued in other areas of Ethiopia.

Dispossessed of their land, these Oromo men and women will be forced to work as day-labourers on their own Land.
