Ethiopian opposition leads protest against government

Ethiopian opposition leads protest against government

Members of the main Ethiopian opposition part, Blue party , led protesters in the streets of Addis Ababa , demanding for a change in the political social and economic policies of the government .

The protesters wanted to march on Meskel square which is mainly used for national public gatherings. However, their demonstration was curtailed when they faced a police roadblock. The police blocked the rally saying the iconic square was under construction.

Although the government has stopped the opposition from assembling at the Meskel square , claiming that it is under construction, the same venue has already been approved for a massive religious event slated for four days from now.

Ethiopia is often criticized by human rights watchdogs for clamping down on opposition and the media on national security grounds, a charge the government denies. It says that it respects the right of all demonstrators and has no problem with peaceful rallies.

Thouansa of the Blue Party supporters staged protest rallies in Addis Ababa back in June. The rallies were seen as the first major demonstrations on the streets of Addis Ababa since 2005 when hundreds of protesters were killed in violent confrontation with security forces.

With the opposition vowing to continue protest rallies, there are rising fears that fresh round of violence erupts in the country.

The main complaint of the Opposition seems to be not going to Meskel Square and not the low turnout.

Why should Meskel Square be closed for 150 people. I have seen more people at my high school reunion….

Observer, you better get out fro Ethiopian wensite and g o to your dehai. It is not about Tigre its about Eritrea, you should be woried about. I see a great job bythe government, getting this anarchists, at bay.

They were trying to make our country like Kenya. Most of them, who were attemding the last demonstration were Salafists like Muslim brotherhood in Egypt to promote their extrimist ideas. Semayawi was relying on those same people. Why they fought hard to make it at Meskel square. Meskel Adebabay is way too big, for two hundred ragged a** anarchists.

Addis Gomen and the rest of your puppies,I was really wondering: What actually is the difference between you and those morons who are terrorizing innocent people in a Nairobi Mall right at the minute? You are all the same; aren’t you?

Have we seen any demonstration, such as this during the FACIEST DERG GOVERNMENT? Those of you who cry for freedom of demonstration, here, you have got it. What else do you want or need? EPRDF will give it to you. If you want to roll in the dust like a Jack azz, you have got it, just ask the government. As long as you don’t break or loot shops, burn public property…as long as you are peaceful, you can demonstrate.

The government blocked the protestors from Maskal Square citing non existent construction work underway there.

It didn’t like the protestors to gather in one of the main squares in Addis and create a Tahir Square- like center. It would make it difficult to control the mov’t and blocking them from gathering in one central place give the impression, the government may conclude, that it’s a disorganized protest by few disgruntled youth.

The protestors should keep up the pressure on the gov’t until it listens to their demands and more important, acknowledge that these protestors represent the voices of millions of people who want political, economic and social reform. The protestors have clearly stated their discontent with the policies of the government.

The government can’t afford to try to marginalize it indefinitely. Hardball attitude would only bring more people out to the streets and harden their resolve to continue their just demand for change.

“Blue Bargaining Chip Party” is the name given to the famous Ethiopian opposition party by Egyptians. As we all know Egyptians provided the name for all opposing parties in Ethiopia to use the title “Bargaining Chips” for those who are committed to serve the interests of Egypt. So is “Blue Bargaining Chip Party".

Thanks to Press TV, the Blue Bargaining Chip Party rocked & will continue to rock Ethiopia with anti-Ethiopia demonstration.
The logo of Blue Bargaining Chip party used the word “Grand…Protest…", to show their masters they are using it against Ethiopia’s Grand Dam.

Blue Bargaining Chips Awakening !
