The leaders of Blue Party have ordered demonstrators to return back to the Party’s Head Office and to peacefully continue the demo there. The demonstrators have been voicing slogans such as ” We need Justice, We Need Freedom, Police belongs to the people, we are one, Free Eskinder Nega, Free Reeyot Alemu and others”, sitting near their Head Office.
