Thunderclap for Ethiopian journalist Reeyot Alemu Gobebo

The Committee to Protect Journalists is seeking support for a Thunderclap for Ethiopian journalist Reeyot Alemu Gobebo, who has been imprisoned since 2011. Her birthday is next Tuesday. Reeyot was a journalist for Feteh and was convicted on three counts under the terrorism law for her writings. Her sentence was reduced from 14 years to 5 years on appeal. Reeyot received a Hellman-Hammett award in 2012 ( and the 2013 UNESCO/Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize.

The birthday of Reeyot Alemu, an award-winning female Ethiopian journalist, who has become a global icon of courage and the struggle for a free press since her imprisonment in 2011 is next Tuesday.
