Ethiopian Oromo communities around the world have participated in a series of protests to condemn the killing on 29 June of popular musician Hachalu Hundessa.
The Ethiopian communities from North America, Europe, Australia and the Middle East have also criticised the arrests of notable Oromo politicians, including media mogul Jawar Mohammed.
In the Australian city of Melbourne, a plane carrying the messages #OromoProtests and Justice4Hachalu in big red letters flew across the Cranbourne and Dandenong suburbs.
Oromo community member and organiser Toltu Tufa told BBC Afaan Oromo that they took the measure since they could not gather due to strict measures to limit the spread of coronavirus.
"Since we are in lockdown due to coronavirus, we cannot simply sit and watch what is unfolding back home. Therefore we took to the skies to let others know about Haacaaluu and the Oromo people," she said.

People arriving in South Sudan will have to quarantine for 14 days
South Sudan has reopened its air space for regional and international flights, the country's civil aviation authority has said.
The government suspended them in March as a precautionary measure to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Kur Kuol, the director-general of Juba International Airport, told reporters on Wednesday that Ethiopian Airlines had been the first non-domestic carrier to land the airport in the capital. The airline is now operating daily flights from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia's capital.
Badr Airlines, a Sudanese cargo and passenger airline, has also resumed flights, as well as Egypt Air.
United Arab Emirates airline FlyDubai will resume regular flights to Juba on Friday.
All those arriving will have to isolate themselves for 14 days and observe health regulations as required.
“Our air space is now open, we have no restrictions on the airlines. But whoever is coming into the country from outside, whether he or she is a foreigner or a South Sudanese national, must provide a health certificate and must self-quarantine for 14 days before engaging with the public while in the country,” Mr Kuol said.

The protests in Kinshasa became heated
Police in the Democratic Republic of Congo have used tear gas to disperse protesters in several cities - including the capital, Kinshasa.
Supporters of President Félix Tshisekedi defied a ban on demonstrations imposed to stop the spread of coronavirus.
For the second time they gathered to denounce the proposed appointment of a new head of the electoral commission.

Protesters do not want Ronsard Malonda to head the electoral commission
They allege ex-President Joseph Kabila is trying to ensure he has an ally in charge of the country's elections.
Since stepping down 18 months ago, Mr Kabila has remained hugely influential as his party has the vast majority of seats in parliament and most cabinet positions.

Named and shamed: The Kenyan MPs who didn't speak

Kenyan MPs are among the most well-paid legislators in the world
Twenty-one Kenyan legislators did not utter a single word in parliament in the last session, which lasted almost a year, an organisation that monitors parliament in the East African nation says.
The list, compiled by Mzalendo, which means "Patriot" in Swahili", is dominated by men, with 16 male MPs and one male senator failing to speak.
Two of the MPs - Oscar Sudi and Samuel Arama - have made zero contributions since 2017.
On Twitter some said it mattered less if an MP failed to talk if they developed their constituency, but others said the views of those who elected a politician needed to be represented in parliament.
Caroline Gaita, who heads Mzalendo, told BBC's Newsday programme that the annual Scorecard report, which was released on Wednesday, looked at the quality of contributions to parliamentary debate in 2019.
She said it was a way of enforcing the social contract between the MPs and the electorate.
Kenyan MPs are among the most well-paid legislators in the world, earning more than $6,000 (£4,700) a month.
