Ethiopian activists launched today a three days social media campaign to demand the release of youth from Addis Ababa who were detained following the Burayu Massacre in mid September this year.
The campaing is using the hashtag #freeaddisababayouth on Twitter.

The youth were rounded as they protest the massacre against ethnic Gamo Ethiopians in Burayu town in the western outskirts of Addis Ababa.

Addis Ababa police said soon after their detention that the youth were “detained.”

As many as 1200 Addis Ababa youth are believed to be detained Tolay military camp.
