The OpenNet Initiative as posted a new blog today on information
controls in Ethiopia.

Ethiopia remains a highly restrictive environment in which to express
political dissent online. The government of Ethiopia has long filtered
critical and oppositional political content. Anti-terrorism legislation
is frequently used to target online speech, including in the recent
conviction of a dozen individuals, many of whom were tried based on
their online writings. OpenNet Initiative (ONI) testing conducted in
Ethiopia in September 2012 found that online political and news content
continues to be blocked, including the blogs and websites of a number of
recently convicted individuals. This blog post summarizes recent
developments in Ethiopia and reports on the results of ONI testing in
the country.
