Equatorial Guinea: Online expression

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Equatorial Guinea, Freedom of Speech

On World Press Freedom Day, Reporters Without Borders shared a list of press freedom predators [1]. The President of Equatorial Guinea, Teodoro Obiang Nguema, is on the list. In this country,  were there is a tight control of the press, Facebook is often used to share information and opinions on world events. For example, so far, the famous cartoonist, Nsé Ramón, is the only Equatoguinean to react online to Osama Bin Laden's death in an ironical text [2] [es].
