Ethiopia Downfall of the Derg Day is a countrywide event. This is the National Day of the country. Also known as Derg Downfall Day, this day marks the independence of Ethiopia from the Derg military rule in 1991. Special speeches are delivered to show tribute to the martyrs, and a number of monuments are put up all over the city of Addis Ababa, the national capital.

The event is one of the most significant festivals in Ethiopia and is treated as work free.
