Ethiopia’s authorities have been restricting access to the internet leaving a lot of people frustrated.

Access to social media sites remains restricted but most people are using Virtual Private Network (VPNs) which allows backdoor access to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and WhatsApp.

An Amnesty International report has accused Ethiopia’s government of “systematically and illegally” blocking access to social media and news websites in its efforts to crush dissent.
