Unfortunately I am out of town this weekend but I am very glad to see this
and I hope lots of people can attend. Coincidentally, I was just working on
improving the article about the Zone 9 bloggers. Still a lot to do though!

Please join us this Sunday for an edit-a-thon at the
office in support of the Zone 9 bloggers.
Zone 9 is a group of bloggers and journalists based in Ethiopia who
started a blog in 2012 in efforts to facilitate civic engagement and open
discussion about Ethiopia. In April of this year, 6 members of the
collective were arrested in Addis Ababa and now face terrorism charges for
their work. Read more about their case here:
Endalkachew Chala, one of the co-founders of Zone 9 who has been a fellow
with EFF for this summer, is helping to organize this edit-a-thon and will
be joining us on Sunday.
Please come to help us to improve articles about Ethiopia, freedom of the
press, the Ethiopian constitution, digital journalism, the bloggers
themselves, and more!
