The Unity for Democracy and Justice Party said the country is heading toward “absolute dictatorship” under the ruling party, which has been in control since 1991.
The party said it would hold rallies to pressure the government to remove the anti-terrorism law. It will also call for the respect of human and democratic rights and will demand the release of jailed dissidents, journalists and political leaders.
The protests are the first show of disapproval against Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn.
