Eskinder Nega (born c. 1968) is an Ethiopian journalist and blogger who has been jailed seven times by the government of Meles Zenawi, including convictions for treason and terrorism. He received the PEN/Barbara Goldsmith Freedom to Write Award in May 2012, and Amnesty International designated him a prisoner of conscience.
“Courageous” is the word that keeps cropping up in descriptions of Reyot Alemu, the Ethiopian journalist whose reporting and columns, mainly on political and economic issues, landed her a five-year prison term for “promoting terrorism”, and who was recently awarded the 2013 UNESCO-Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize for her contributions to press freedom.
