On Thursday may 15 2014 hundreds of Ethiopians residing in Sweden and friends of Ethiopia staged a peaceful demonstration outside the Ethiopian Consulate here in Stockholm to condemn the recent mass killings ,torture and detention in Oromia and Amhara area committed by TPLF as well as to demand of the journalist and bloggers to be released immediately and unconditionally. The demonstrators chanted slogans which depict their solidarity with all prisoners of conscious held under the guise of Ethiopia's infamous "anti-terrorism" Law. Ethiopians at home and abroad should show their solidarity with today's victims of miscarriage of justice and thousands of Ethiopians who're being incarcerated by the ruling party.
Ethiopia has become a prison state and Ethiopians should strengthen their peaceful struggle to reclaim their birth rights. The different protesters displayed cameras, pens, note pads, recorders and other materials which symbolizes freedom of expression which they believed are being under constant threat by the Ethiopian regime.
At this current time, in my country Ethiopia, freedom of expression in general and freedom of the press in particular is at the tip of its grave in which updating a Facebook status could also be considered as a crime.
Recently, at the end of last month, six bloggers and three journalists were detained by the government authorities in Makelawi, the notorious Federal Police Crime Investigation Sector.
