Astronism in Ethiopia under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism.
The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Ethiopia is split into thirteen provinces and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Addis Ababa.
This national branch of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory.
It is The Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
History of Astronism in Ethiopia
Astronism is currently not recognised as a religion by the Ethiopian government and the Astronist Institution, in its 2020 Astronist Freedom report, designated the situation of Astronist religious liberties in Ethiopia as censorious, thus highlighting significant concerns.
The number of Astronists in Ethiopia as of late 2019 was estimated at around 5,000 people which is a minute proportion of the population and many of whom live in the country city Addis Ababa.
Also, the translation of Astronist content into the Amharic language not yet begun by 2019 which proposed a second barrier to people being able to access content on Astronism.
