Human Rights Violation

In Ethiopia there is a prison called zone 9. The prisoners at zone 9 are arrested for speaking about the future of Ethipoia. The prisoners don't comit actual crimes. In America we are lucky to have freedom of speech, something Ethiopia doesn't have. Talking about the future of their country is unacceptable to the government. This violates humans right to freedom of speech.
