The CUD has been an organization that has gotten the love and respect of the People of Ethiopia at large. Its principles and visions have brought millions of Ethiopians together from all regions and ethnic groups.

By incarcerating CUD leaders for more than 20 months, and investing millions of dollars, the ruling party has been trying unabated to divide and kill the CUD. Fortunately the CUD has shown its strength and resilience in front of heavy attacks it received from the ruling party as well as some bad elements within its leadership. (more…)

The CUD has been an organization that has gotten the love and respect of the People of Ethiopia at large. Its principles and visions have brought millions of Ethiopians together from all regions and ethnic groups.

By incarcerating CUD leaders for more than 20 months, and investing millions of dollars, the ruling party has been trying unabated to divide and kill the CUD. Fortunately the CUD has shown its strength and resilience in front of heavy attacks it received from the ruling party as well as some bad elements within its leadership.

It is to be recalled that the CUD has managed to assemble the executive committee and council members in a short period of time and reasserted itself again.

Today, February 5, 2008, another big step forward – more than 40 members of parliament have officially signed agreement with the CUD executives to work and function according to the by-law and manifesto of the CUD.

Though the name and symbol of the CUD are illegally and unconstitutionally given to individuals by the EPRDF dominated National Board of Election, the movement for democracy and equality that the CUD is for, is continuing. The tent is growing. The fractured groups are coming one by one to their mother organization.

Since this movement of democracy is owned by the people, surely democracy and freedom shall soon prevail in Ethiopia .
