Addis Ababa, September 1, 2018 – The Patriotic Ginbot 7 has left its base in Eritrea and crossed into Ethiopia via Humera today.
Patriotic Ginbot 7 recently announced it had suspended all self-defense activities using fire arms in all regions of Ethiopia.
It decided to pursue peaceful struggle following the invitation extended by Prime Minister Dr Abiy Ahmed for all exiled political parties to work together for the unity of the nation.
Its decision to suspend self-defense activities using arms also took into account the reforms underway in Ethiopia.
A number of exiled political parties, including the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) and Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF), also returned home to engage in a peaceful political program.
