Will you help Serkalem Addis free her husband jailed in Ethiopia?

Serkalem AddisEskinder Nega has been sentenced to 18 years in prison for telling the truth. Will you help us to secure his release and return him to his family?

As a Facebook fan we know free speech is important to you. By making a donation today you will support our campaign to get Eskinder home to his family and his vital work as a journalist.

When the Ethiopian government used anti-terror laws to silence its critics, Eskinder spoke out in protest. As a result he was arrested for the eighth time and sentenced to 18 years in prison.

Despite the lies and the pain of separation from his wife and son, Eskinder’s hope for the future of Ethiopia and its people is as strong as ever. In a letter smuggled out of prison he said:

‘Freedom is partial to no race. Freedom has no religion. Freedom favours no ethnicity. Freedom discriminates not between rich and poor countries. Inevitably, freedom will overwhelm Ethiopia.’

The then-TPLF-dominated regime in Ethiopia was the first in sub-Saharan Africa to actively engage in political censorship of the Internet .

Since May 2006, the most popular Ethiopian web sites (including CyberEthiopia) and several blogs have been blocked across the nation. The apparent objective was to prevent the dissemination of information that is critical of the regime.

Following the political protests which have swept the nation since November 2015, the regime has routinely shutdown the Internet and restricted access to Social Media (including Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Viber) and indicated its keenness to control Social Media.

On 22nd June 2018, the new Prime Minister Dr Abye Ahmed's government reported that it had unblocked 264 websites including after 12 years of blockage as attested by the OONI’s thorough verifications of our website’s unblocking .
