From Dictatorship to Democracy, now available in Afaan Oromoo

Gene Sharp’s influential book, From Dictatorship to Democracy, is now available in Afaan Oromoo. The book offers practical and theoretical guide to toppling dictatorships through nonviolent means. It is credited for inspiring the recent wave of successful non-violent uprisings including the one in Egypt.

Two Oromo activists have teamed up to complete the translation from English to the Oromo language. Afaan Oromo is the third most widely spoken language in Africa. The book is also available in two other Ethiopian languages – Amharic and Tigrinya. We commend the translators for their timely contribution. We hope that Oromo and Ethiopian activists who are grappling with the most repressive form of tyranny will find the book useful in their quest for freedom and democracy.
