PRESS RELEASE: Global Civic Movement for Change in Ethiopia

August 8, 2012

Dear Sir/Madam:

As you may be aware, all major Ethiopian democratic political and civic organizations in the Diaspora have been working together to speak in one voice and to make a united call on what needs to be done to avert the danger the country is heading to under the current dictatorial TPLF/EPRDF regime.

We are delighted to announce that major opposition forces in exile have now made a joint commitment to stand in unison and work collaboratively to realize their shared goal of establishing a free, united and democratic Ethiopia. To that effect, please find attached the joint statement outlining the agreement made by all the organizations that undersigned the document.

We would like to request that you publish/announce this major breakthrough to the public and help us to promote this important initiative to all those who support our struggle to bring about a democratic Ethiopia.

The spokespersons for the coordinating committee will make follow up press conferences and briefings in the coming days.

Thank you for your assistance in publicizing this major breakthrough to the public.

With warm regards,
