Berhanu Nega was jailed, and founded Ginbot 7 on his release.

16 Moreover, in recent years, massive protests by the Blue Party opposition group and Muslim groups, have ended in deaths, repression, and state violence.17 Finally, in November, a 166-page report on the plight of the Oromo people in Ethiopia was released.18 Concluding that the Oromo people have suffered "sweeping" repression in Ethiopia, the report detailed that between 2011 and 2014, more than 5000 Oromos have been arrested based on their opposition to the government, with the majority of those arrested being peaceful protestors or members of opposition parties.19 Looking towards the 2015 elections, Berhanu Nega, Professor of Economics at Bucknell University and former leader of the Coalition for Unity and Democracy in Ethiopia, asserts that the Ethiopian government can "never have free and fair elections. Specifically, according to Nega, "[t]he reason why there's so much repression, the reason why there's so much muzzling of the press, the reason why the Ethiopian government is arresting opposition figures inside the country is precisely because they know that this is a despised government.

Berhanu was elected mayor of capital Addis Ababa after parliamentary elections in 2005 but was jailed when the opposition disputed the government's victory.
Police and soldiers killed about 200 opposition protestors in street violence that followed the poll.
Berhanu and other opposition leaders were released in a 2007 pardon after which he went to the United States to teach economics at Bucknell University in Philadelphia.

Berhanu collected money for them in the United States, he said.
Berhanu's organisation 'May 15th' is named after the date of the 2005 poll. He has made statements in the United States saying it wants to violently overthrow the government.
Birtukan Mideksa, the 34-year-old leader of the opposition Unity for Democracy and Justice party (UDJ), was jailed in December for allegedly violating the terms of the pardon that led to her release along with Berhanu and others.
The government granted permission for 250 opposition members to march through Addis last week to demand her release in the first political protests since the violence in 2005. Many of the marchers were former political allies of Berhanu.
