The Oromos in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) and the nearby cities colourfully celebrated the 2011 Irreechaa Holiday in a colourfull scenery in countryside Whitby yesterday, September 24, 2011.
It was a mement of not only celebrating a holiday, but also of a renewal of commitments towards Oromo cultural revival, identity, nationhood, and belongingness. The Oromos were joined by a lot of friends from other nationalities.
The site was a free offer for the Holiday use by a native Canadian; and, the GTA Oromos go to this same site every year to celebrate Irreecha.
