Leaders of the Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF) and Patriotic Ginbot7 Movement for Unity and Democracy (PG7)  on Wednesday reached a breakthrough agreement to wage the struggle in unison against the TPLF/EPRDF regime and work jointly to facilitate the formation of a broad based common platform for all democratic forces.

“Both sides vowed that they would take an active role with all stakeholders to create an effective platform and an alternative force that would work towards a process of bringing an end to the suffering of the Ethiopian people under the TPLF/EPRDF tyrannical regime,” according to a joint statement issued in Frankfurt, Germany on May 17, 2017.

The agreement was signed by Chairman of PG7, Prof. Berhanu Nega and Mohamed Omar Osman, Chairman of the ONLF

“The representatives of the two organizations acknowledged that the current crisis in Ethiopia is developing into a full-fledged catastrophe for the Ethiopian people and the region as a whole. They agreed that if the abysmal condition is left unreversed, it will lead to both humanitarian and political disaster possibly spiraling to the sub region,” the joint statement further said.

“After delegates deliberated on the overall conditions and made a sober assessment of what needs to be done by all democratic forces, both sides vowed that they would take an active role with all stakeholders to create an effective platform and an alternative force that would work towards a process of bringing an end to the suffering of the Ethiopian people under the TPLF/EPRDF tyrannical regime,” the statement said.

The two sides agreed to “lay the foundation for a transitional process that will usher a new genuinely representative democratic order in Ethiopia.”

The two organizations also call upon the international community to side with the people of Ethiopia and help end their plight under a brutal regime.
