Categories: Ethiopia, Digital Activism, Freedom of Speech, Human Rights, Media & Journalism, GV Face

Nine bloggers and journalists — four of them Global Voices members — are currently being detained in Ethiopia because of their work. Who are the Zone 9 bloggers? What can supporters do to push for their release? In this edition of GV Face, we talk with Ethiopian blogger and Zone 9 member Endalk, along with PEN America Freedom to Write fellow Deji Olukotun and Advox editor Ellery Biddle about this important case.
