Tegbar and the Ethiopian Patriotic Youth League agree to merge

December 3rd, 2007


The executive committees of Ethiopian Democratic Action League (Tegbar) and the Ethiopian People Patriotic Front’s Youth League (Youth League) have agreed to merge their organizations and create a unified political movement.

The primary objective of the merged group is to enable the people of Ethiopia defend ourselves from the repression and atrocities of the ruling Tigray People’s Liberation Front (Woyanne) by any means available to us. To this end, the new movement seeks to work with all Ethiopian organizations who have similar objectives.

The movement fully supports and stands in solidarity with the newly created alliance, Unity of Ethiopians for Democratic Change (UEDC).

The movement strives to establish mutually beneficial relations with the Government of Eritrea, and other neighboring countries, as well as the European Union and U.S. Government, particularly the U.S. Congress and European Parliament, which appear to be sympathetic to the plight of the people of Ethiopia.

The movement’s leading demand is: The illegitimate, criminal regime of Meles Zenawi must be removed and be brought to justice!

The name of the new organization and its program will be released after ratification by members.
