Letters to Leaders: Stop the Genocide in Ogaden region.

To: President Barack Obama

November 20, 2010

The Honorable Barack Obama,

I appreciate your willingness to serve the public. As a concerned citizen, we are writing this letter to inform you of the human rights violations that are currently taking place in the desiccated Ogaden region of Ethiopia. We are asking you to take immediate action to protect these incapacitated individuals from the Ethiopian government and bring reconciliation to this region. The racial extermination of the Ethiopian military against the people of the Ogaden has been ongoing since September 23, 1948, when the Ogaden region was transferred to Ethiopia. The Ogaden region is sparsely inhabited with Somali nomads, who are deprived of both personal and political freedom.

It is critical to note that very few people have limited knowledge of this genocide. Genocide is defined as the killing of members in a group, causing serious bodily or mental harm, imposing measures intended to prevent birth, or forcibly transferring children of that group to another group. This is exactly what is taking place in Ogaden, according to the Genocide Convention signed and put into effect by the U.N December 9. 1948.
