We, all are Zone 9

1 May

The arrest of six bloggers and three journalists by Ethiopia’s government in 2014 April ending, has led to widespread outcry even among those generally supportive of the ruling party’s policies.
Friends and readers portray the Zone 9 bloggers as young and principled activists pressuring Ethiopia’s government to respect the country’s 1995 constitution.
Possible assumption to the arrest:
1. Working with foreign advocacy groups who tried to create “unrest” using social media. The UK-registered organization, Article 19 recently attempted to offer Ethiopian journalists and bloggers training in online journalism security.
2. Some analysts have suggested that the crackdown on journalists is happening because the government is worried about the potential for unrest due to rising prices.
3. Elections without Meles are due next year.
