Eritrea rolls out a new Ethiopian opposition party made from old terror groups
Tigrai Online, Ethiopian News, April 2, 2016
The Eritrean gangsters acting as a government have rolled out a brand new Ethiopian political organization made from old parts. In a conference held from March 21 to 25 in Asmara attended by Eritrean organizers and the five individuals, the leaders announced the establishment of the newly made in Eritrea so called “The People’s Alliance for Freedom and Democracy (PAFD)”.
The new alliance is made up of the Benishangul Peoples Liberation Movement (BPLM), the Gambela Peoples Liberation Movement (GPLM), the Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF), Oromo Liberation Front (OLF), the Sidama National Liberation Front (SNLF)
We can’t help it but notice the name of the new organization resembles the Eritrean ruling party, The People's Front for Democracy and Justice (PFDJ). Last year Shabiya made Arbegnoch Ginbot 7 for Unity and Democratic Movement (AGUDM) led by Dr. Berhanu Nega which was made up of Tigray People’s Democratic Movement (TPDM), Afar People’s Liberation Movement (APLM), and Amhara Democratic Force Movement (ADFM). Notice how the Eritreans are organizing their puppet organizations based on north and south of Ethiopia. Since then AGUDM has disintegrated because the main force of AGUDM the TPDM led by its chairman surrendered to Ethiopian authorities.

What is new about the new alliance made in Eritrea to destabilize Ethiopia? The big deal now is the Arabs led by Saudi Arabia and Egypt are actively present in Eritrea under the cover of the conflict in Yemen. Since the Arabs have a military base in Assab now they can closely monitor training and arming of these terrorist groups in person. They can also transport them to Ethiopia on land without too much difficulty.
Some Ethiopians dismiss the Eritrean efforts to destabilize and to disintegrate Ethiopia as a joke. They argue Eritrea lacks the resources and international connections to achieve its ultimate goal of breaking Ethiopia in to pieces. The reality on the ground is totally different especially with the direct involvement of the Arab governments, Eritrea is gaining the necessary economic and diplomatic necessities to destroy Ethiopia forever.
Concerned nationalist Ethiopians should pay attention to any new geopolitical developments in our region especially what is taking place in Eritrea.
