The government of Ethiopia has responded to a groundswell of protests, which are calling for democracy and human rights for all, by imposing a six-month long state of emergency, effective October 8.

The list of measures curtailing freedoms through the emergency are far-reaching. They include bans on: social media; accessing news outlets such as the US-based ESAT and Oromo Media Network; participating in or organizing protests without government authorization; making gestures, including the infamous crossing of arms above your head; and visiting government, agriculture or industry facilities between 6pm and 6am. With Addis Ababa as the seat of several international organizations including the African Union, foreign diplomats are now only allowed to travel within a 25 miles radius of the capital. Security forces have been given greater powers, including the ability to search people and homes without a court order and the authority to use force, while due process is suspended. Finally, opposition groups are barred from issuing statements to the press, and Ethiopians are not allowed to discuss issues that could “incite violence” with foreigners. This includes speaking to the media or providing information to international civil society groups such as the Oakland Institute.

Anti-ISIL rally turns violent in EthiopiRally over deaths in Libya gains anti-authority momentum with protesters throwing stones at police, prompting crackdown.
22 Apr 2015 17:16 GMT | Politics
Tens of thousands of Ethiopians have marched in a government-supported rally against the killing of Ethiopian Christians in Libya, but some demonstrators directed their anger at the authorities, prompting clashes with the police.
Wednesday's march at Addis Ababa's Meskel Square turned violent as stone-throwing protesters clashed with the police, who used tear gas against the crowd and arrested at least 100 people.
"We are tired of speeches and propaganda! We want action! Revenge for our brothers!" shouted a group of youths, referring to Ethiopians seen apparently being beheaded or shot in a video released on Sunday by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Libya.
"Ethiopia sent troops to Somalia, Liberia, Burundi, but the government is not capable of protecting its own citizens!" shouted one protester, referring to its peacekeeping roles in the African Union and United Nations.
Ahaza Kassaye, the mother of one of the victims identified as Eyasu Yikunoamlak, told the AP news agency during the protest that she was overwhelmed by the massive turnout.
"I'm happy now. I'm very happy. I was just mourning the death of my son with family members and my neighbours. I never expected this to happen," she said.

Kassaye, who had to seek shelter in a cafe when the protest turned violent, said she hoped the government would react to the killings by closing all illegal border crossings and arresting suspected human traffickers.
The Ethiopian victims are believed to have been captured in Libya while trying to reach Europe.
Government response
Ethiopian legislators on Tuesday were debating a possible response to the ISIL killings, but it remains unclear if military action is an option.
Three days of national mourning began on Tuesday over the killings.
The government has promised to help repatriate migrants who are still in Libya and has warned its citizens not to go to areas where ISIL is active.
The rally came a month before Ethiopia holds parliamentary elections, the first since the death of long-time leader Meles Zenawi.
Current Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn faces little, if any, opposition challenge.

CLEVELAND —It was an at-times tense but by all accounts probing conversation when a few hundred gathered here recently in a downtown warehouse space outfitted with projectors, folding chairs and a modest stage.
The 21 / 2-hour forum was not unlike the scores of conversations on race that have taken place in community forums, on bar stools and across kitchen tables throughout the country in recent months and years, fueled by the election of the nation’s first black president and a renewed focus on policing of black communities in light of the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown shootings.

Voices were raised, ovations were given, disagreements were hugged out. Few solutions were uncovered — but no one really expected them to be on this night.

What made the recent event stand out from other public forums was that the dialogue was facilitated and organized entirely by Republicans.

The gathering is part of efforts by the local GOP, in advance of the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, to reach out to communities that have been reliable Democratic constituencies in modern years — black, Hispanic and LGBT voters. As part of those efforts, led by Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Rob Portman, the Ohio GOP has brought in a number of young minority political operatives and reached out to donors and operatives previously aligned with local Democrats. The Ohio efforts are part of a larger U.S. strategy led by Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to actively court black voters who have rebuffed outreach efforts targeting them in election cycles past.

Hosted by the Cuyahoga County GOP, the “Rebuilding America’s Great Urban Core” forum featured local activist, public speaker and former Democratic city council candidate Basheer Jones, who debated Wall Street Journal editorial board member Jason Riley, a black conservative who has become a darling of the right after his commentary following the Brown shooting and unrest in Ferguson, Mo. The real solution, he often posits, is that blacks must help themselves and stop blaming their ills on systemic racism.

An Ethiopian Air Force cargo plane has crashed and caught fire on landing at Mogadishu airport in Somalia.
Four of the six crew members on board the aircraft - carrying ammunition for international forces fighting Islamist militants - were killed.
Ammunition could be heard exploding inside the plane as the fire spread, closing the airport. The blaze was put out after about two hours.
Ethiopian troops entered Somalia in 2011 to assist African Union forces.
It is not known yet when the plane got into difficulties, and whether it overshot the runway, or fell short of it.

1/5It was not immediately clear where the plane flew from.
The Somali Islamist militia, al-Shabab, which is linked to al-Qaeda, described the crash as an act of God, reports the BBC's Abdullahi Abdi Sheikh in Nairobi.
On its Twitter feed, al-Shabab said the plane crash had "thwarted... the plots of the enemy invaders".
MapEthiopian troops are not part of the African Union peacekeeping force, supporting the Somali government forces in their fight against al-Shabab.
Al-Shabab militants have shot at planes in the past but not in recent years, the Associated Press news agency reports.
The two crew members injured in the crash are currently receiving medical attention at the African Union hospital in Mogadishu, its mission in Somalia, Amisom, said in a statement.
Crash probe
The crash occurred shortly before 08:00 local time (05:00GMT), Amisom said. There was no damage to the runway, it added.
The cause of the incident is yet to be established but investigations are currently under way," the AU mission said.

The aircraft was a Soviet-made Antonov 24, Reuters news agency reports. Military aircraft regularly land at the airport. It was unclear what ammunition the plane was carrying.

A convoy of empty Somali military trucks had been seen earlier at the airport, Reuters adds.

Somalia - which has seen conflict since 1991 - has a poor record on aviation safety.
