BACKGROUND

Since the illegal annexation of ogaden to Ethiopia by European powers in 1954, there was and still is an ever increasing military conflict between ogaden resistant movements of which the current one is ogaden national liberation front (ONLF) and Ethiopian Ethiopian military forces, which as a result produced one of the largest refugee community in the world, of which OCSA is part. Ogaden Community in South Africa is a civic, advocacy body with principled vision and goals, of which the prime tasks are raising awareness about ogaden plight, lobbing for peaceful settlement to ogaden crisis, putting the military conflict in Ogaden( eastern present-day Ethiopia) to an end and investigating the massacre on ogaden citizens and prosecuting perpetrators.
