Freedom of the press and media in general in Ethiopia is not about protecting the rights of newspapers, editors, journalists, reporters or foreign correspondents and radio broadcasters. It is fundamentally about the constitutional and internationally-guaranteed legal rights of every Ethiopian citizen to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers and without interference, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through other media of his choice and without censorship in any form. It is emphatically the duty of every Ethiopian who believes in the rule of law and freedom of expression to help deliver information and ideas of all kinds to Ethiopians regardless of frontiers. Let us all as Ethiopians join hands and resolve in our hearts and minds to become a thousand points of light shining brightly like the stars on the curtain of darkness that has enveloped Ethiopia today.

Leave us your comments on the quality of the image and audio on +442081440101 (London) or +12026839880 (DC).

ESAT's online streaming service will shortly be available here on our site, for
the rest of the world. Please visit for more information.

Political Internet Filtering in Ethiopia

The apparent objective is to prevent the dissemination of information that is critical of the regime.
