Ethiopia Press Releases

ethiopiaEthiopia’s has a poor record on media freedom and is one of the most heavily censored countries in the world. The government’s self-interest in suppressing any form of criticism is clear from:

  • The large number of journalists in prison and self-imposed exile.
  • The ruling party’s rigorous safeguarding of its monopoly over the media and telecommunications.

ARTICLE 19 is working with Ethiopian journalists to increase freedom of expression in their country.
