  • Description

    University students on Thursday (26 September) defied the Ethiopian military Government's ban on demonstrations for the third time in two weeks when they held a mass rally to discuss the political situation.

    More than a thousand students gathered on the campus of the Science Faculty in Addis Ababa and heard fresh calls on the two-week-old provisional Government to hand power back to civilians.

    Posters were plastered on campus wall, but there were no incidents.

    Two truckloads of soldiers were stationed near the University but they did not intervene in the rally. However, they moved in to take down posters, and later went inside. It was the first time troops had entered the university.
