DescriptionMilitant nationalist association of the Oromo people decried and outlawed by the Ethiopian government as a terrorist organization until a peace treaty was signed on August 2018. The OLF spent 45 years of its existence (the 'Oromo Conflict') battling the Ethiopian government through its armed wing, the Oromo Liberation Army.

The OLF still battles what it perceives to be Amhara and Tigrayan ethno-chauvinism and dominance in Ethiopia and at times has allied itself with Eritrean and Somali forces during territorial skirmishes.

The party has representative offices in the US and Europe [Oromo language: Adda Bilisummaa Oromoo (ABO)]
