This is Josef. He was locked up by the Ethiopian authorities working for Meles Zenawi, after the rioting in Addis in October..

He brought us down to the Omo and a couple of weeks later was arrested playing chess outside his house with his brother in Addis Ababa. Released one day, arrested again the next.

The man resposnisible, Meles Zenawi has just won the February vote on openDemocracy as the winner of the Bad Democracy award, so following in the illustrious footsteps of Berlusconi (Italy), Howard (Australia) and Bush (USA), winning a massive 80% of the votes cast.

Let us hope this massive international show of recognition of the problems in Ethiopia, actually does some good in mobilising forces against this nasty man and his hated regime.
