An awakening call to all Somalis!, By Sharmarke mohamed Hashi

I am happy to join with my fellow country men/women with solidarity in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration against the occupation of Somalia in the eyes of the International Community for the history of our nation.

Four and half years ago, a great Somalians, in whose symbolic shadow I stand today, signed the Federal Institutions Charter. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Somalis who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity of fear.

But Four and half years later, the Somalis still are not free. Four and half years later, the life of the Somalis are still sadly crippled by the manacles of Injustice and the chains of inhumanity with in their own fellow country men. Four and half years later, the Somalis lives on a lonely island of poverty,anarchy,lawlessness and chaos in the midst of the eyes of the International Community. Four and half years later, the Somalis are still languished in the corners of the International Community and finds themselves an exile in their own land. And so I've to raise the plight of the Somalian people today and to dramatize a shameful condition they are in here in Somalia.

In a sense I've come to our nation's capital Mogadishu,Somalia to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the words of the Federal Charter, they were signing a promissory note to which every Somalis was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes all men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." It is obvious today that Somalia has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of all colors are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, Somalia has given the Somali people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds."

But I refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. I refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, I've come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice.

I have also come to this hallowed spot to remind Somalis of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of change. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of anarchy to the sunlit path of equal justice. Now is the time to lift the Somali nation from the quicksands of injustice to the solid rock of one brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of Somalia.

It would be fatal for the Somali nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering heat of the Somalia's legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating rainy season of freedom and equality. Fourteen twenty eight in the Islamic calender or two thousand eight in the Christean calender is not an end, but a beginning. And those who hope that the Somalis needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the Somali Institutions returns to business as usual. And there will be neither rest nor tranquility in Somalia until the Average Somalis is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.

But there is something that I must say to my Fellow country men/women, who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice: In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred among ourselves. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must allow our creative protest to generate into peaceful protest. Again and again, my fellow country men/women must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with peaceful force.

The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Somali community abroad must not lead us to a distrust of the International Community, for many of our brothers and sisters as evidenced by their presence around the world and inside Somalia, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. And they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom.

We cannot walk alone.

And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.

We cannot turn back.

There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights in Somalia, "When will you be satisfied?" We can never be satisfied as long as the average Somalis his/her is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of Ethiopian military brutality in Somalia. We can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of stress, cannot gain our sovereign. We cannot be satisfied as long as Ethiopia military is in Somalia. We can never be satisfied as long as our fellow country men/women are stripped of their self-hood and robbed of their dignity by a sign stating: "For Elites Only." We cannot be satisfied as long as a Somalis in North-West of Somalia come to join their fellow country men/women in the South and a Somalis in Galgaduud believes he has nothing to fear but fear itself. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until "justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream.

I am not unmindful that some of readers may have great trials and tribulations. Some of you have a fresh from narrow jail cells. And some of you may have come from areas where your quest -- quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of Federal Institutions brutality and the Ethiopian Military machine. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the Islamic faith. Go back to Galgaduud,Somalia, go back to Mudug,Somalia go back to Mogadishu,Somalia go back to Lower Jubba,Somalia go back to North-West,Somalia go back to the slums and ghettos of our cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed.

The change is our hands and mines with help of of Almighty God.

Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my fellow country men/women.

And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the Somalian dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation of ours will rise up and live out the true meaning of its Nation: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the beautiful hills of Nugal,Togdher,Sool,Sanag,Gedo,Awdal, Bari and Hargeysa will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood and raise up against the Ethiopian aggression and their culprits once for all.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Banadir, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice for all Somalis.

I have a dream that my three little children will one day live a nation where they will not be judged by the clan or their sub clan, but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day, down in North-West of Somalia with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of "interposition" and "nullification" -- one day right there in Boosaaso little boys and girls from Baydhabo region will be able to join hands with little boys and girls as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; "and the glory of the Almighty God shall be revealed and all shall see the true religion of Islam.

This is our hope, and this is the faith that I go back to the Somalia with.

With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood and sisterhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to down together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that Somalia will be free one day.

And this will be the day -- this will be the day we as all need to repent to Almighty God.

My country sweet land of liberty, and Justice.

Land where my fathers died, land of the Islamic pride,

From every mountainside, let freedom ring!

And if Somalia is to be a great nation, this must become true.

And so let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of Nugal,Sool,Mudug,Togdher,Galgaduud,Lower Jubba,Awdal,Gedo,Banadir.

Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of Lower Shabelle,Somalia.

Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Upper Jubba,Somalia.

Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Sheikh,Somalia.

Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of Bosaaso,Somalia.

But not only that:

Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Gedo.

Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Nugaal.

Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Galgaduud.

From every mountainside, let freedom ring.

And when this happens, when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of my fellow country men/women will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the Almighty God:

ALLAH AKBAR

Free at last! Free at last!

Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!
