ANDM to Celebrate 35th Anniversary (Video)
Awramba Times (Addis Ababa) – The 35th anniversary of the launching of the armed struggle of the Amhara National Democratic Movement (ANDM), formerly known as the Ethiopian People’s Democratic Movement (EPDM), will be colorfully celebrated with an assortment of events and presence of leaders of various countries next month in Bahirdar.
ANDM, a political organization founded in 1982 by former members of the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Party (EPRP), originally based in Waghimra, Wollo, to wage an armed struggle against the Derg.
In 1989 EPDM and its long-time ally TPLF united to form the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPDRF). At its third organizational conference in 1994, the EPDM changed its name to the Amhara National Democratic Movement (ANDM), marking its transition from a pan-Ethiopian movement to an ethnic party.
Early this month, ANDM organized a visit for Artist and media personalities to the organization’s historic bases in preparation to the 35th Anniversary. Please watch this short video production of Awramba times below
