The Zone9 bloggers are in jail because of their writings and efforts to better inform the public about policy issues and their constitutional rights. Ethiopian authorities have promoted a narrative about the Zone9 bloggers suggesting that these activities, and the bloggers’ efforts to learn about digital security, are criminal.
Blogging is not a crime.
Learning about online privacy is not a crime.
Defending human rights is not a crime.
We defend the rights of everyone to speak freely and without fear.
We are outraged by this violation of our colleagues’ rights to free expression.
The Ethiopian government must be held accountable for the unjust treatment of these brave writers.
We are Global Voices. We want justice for the Zone9 bloggers.
