PressTV: Why is Ethiopia in an ‘ethnic clash’ state of emergency?

March 21, 2018 (Press TV) –Rights groups have long criticized Ethiopia’s government as repressive and undemocratic. Authorities arrested thousands of people during a wave of sometimes violent anti-government protests, mainly in the Oromia and Amhara regions, during 2015 and 2016. Most were charged with treason or incitement to violence. Activists said the government was attempting to silence dissent.
