We the undersigned Oromo and Yemeni Human Rights Organizations and Civic institutions have held a joint press conference, on March 16, 2021. The purpose of the conference is to exchange information and raise awareness about the atrocities committed against Oromo and other refugees in Yemen, Sanaa.  

We, the participants of the press conference have learned that, historically, very positive relationships exist between the Oromo nation and the people of Yemen. As the result, many pioneers, prominent leaders and martyrs of the Oromo nation, such as Elemo Qilxu have found safety and protection among the people of Yemen, and lived in Yemen, as their second home.

Attached, please, find the full content of the joint statement. please, also share, share, share with your friends, family members and all contents, as well as make it part of your news on your Media outlets. 


While thanking the people of Yemen for their long-held friendship and hospitality, we, the participants of this press conference, unanimously express our utmost sorrow, and condemn, in the strongest term possible, the inhumane act of burning Oromo refugees alive, in Yemen, Sanaa, in a detention center, that is controlled by Houthi Militia. The horrifying massacre has taken place, on Sunday, March 07, 2021.
