The Madhibaan People


The Madhibaan, an indigenous people living mainly in the Horn of Africa are one of the aboriginal peoples of the country which is called today Somalia. They are struggling to live in peace and in their ancestral homelands. The history of the oppression of the Madhibaan - even as slaves of the invading Somali Clans - is long and full of blood and tears. The former government tried at least to provide the most basic human rights to the Madhibaan and other outcast minorities in Somalia, but since the onset of the civil war in 1991 the Madhibaan, like many other people from Somalia suffer from assassinations by members of the majority clans and atrocities at the hands of the Somalis as well as from neglect and injustice from the side of the international community. But the Madhibaan don't give up and claim back their rights.

"All life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied to a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly."

Martin Luther King, Jr.


"However much we may detest admitting it, the fact remains that there would be no exploitation if people refused to obey the exploiter. But self comes in and we hug the chains that bind us. This must cease."

Mohandas Gandhi
