Today the Sidama Nation Successfully defended its rights during the Sidama Language symposium that took place in Sidama Capital- Hawassa, in Sidama cultural Hall. On today's (14 August 2012) Symposium three major decisions were made by the Sidamas independent Scholars involving Dr Anbese from Israel's Hebrew University and Dr Yosef Mamo, Dean at Hawassa University among others prominent Sidama intellectuals. The deliberation of the Sidama Scholars and the entire Sidama participants include:-
The Sidama language is not given appropriate attention to develop to date, it must be given the respect it deserves based on suggestions of Sidama's international renown aforementioned linguist. The language also must be one of the major subjects in Sidama region's Universities. This was greed up on. To lead this project an independent Sidama Scholars are appointed.
The Sidama New Year (Fichche) is one of the oldest cultures that survived under several challenges in the world, therefore, it should be registered by the UNESCO as world heritage; to do so experts delegated to take this forward.
Sidama celebrated its New Year, Fichche in Hawassa's Guudumale (the settlers later called it (Amora Gedel-the gorge of Vultures). The Sidamas unanimously demanded the area to be renamed by its original name 'Guudumale' without precondition. The Sidama people also demanded for the Sidama cultural monument to be erected at Guudumale as soon as possible. There is also a task force to affect this. All Sidamas as well as Sidama intellectuals unanimously agreed that this is the issue that must be addressed urgently!
