ESAT News (November 15, 2017)

Ethiopian regime security allow groups opposing the Eritrean government to rally in the capital Addis Ababa despite a ban on protests to Ethiopians.

The over 200 protesters marched to the headquarters of the African Union to vent their anger against their government back home.

Ethiopians are not allowed to hold protest rallies as the regime bans any form of opposition to its rule.

A recent request by the opposition Blue Party to hold demonstrations has been denied permit by the security.

According to ESAT sources, some of the protesters were not actually Eritreans but were operatives of the TPLF regime embedded in the rally disguised as Eritreans.

The two countries trade accusations that the other supports and enables their opposition.
