tumblr_n575s45oAT1tacd1co1_1280 Global Voices Advocacy started a Tumblr [1] in early May to rally support for nine bloggers and journalists — four of them Global Voices members — who are currently being detained in Ethiopia [2] because of their work. Allies from across the globe have submitted photos, messages of solidarity, videos and artwork to show their support for the bloggers’ release. On May 19, the #FreeZone9Bloggers Tumblr [1] began trending on the social media sharing site. Submit a photo [3] to the Tumblr or learn about other ways [4] to support the campaign.
