Opinion: Mainly Oromo and Amara activists in Ethiopia are making use of social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook in a campaign for the release of Oromo and Amara persons in jail for political reasons.

With the hashtag #FreeAllPrisonersOfConscience different Twitter users shared photos of persons ranging from journalists, politicians, religious preachers and activists.
