They demand for justice for Hachalu Hundessa who was murdered and for other Oromo leaders who have been jailed.

Another peaceful protest took place on July 1st.  Today, Ethiopia’s attorney general says two men confessed to killing the singer as part of a plot to topple the Prime Minister’s government.  Police in the country say 240 people have been killed by recent unrest.
