The Ethiopian government is expanding its suppression of civil and political dissent with the upgrade of its telecommunications network according to a new report from Human Rights Watch. The report alleges that censorship and surveillance are both on the rise as foreign companies, largely Chinese, install new 3G/4G mobile networks. While HRW's report should be commended for documenting the increased repression, the NGO's recommendations on how to remedy the situation are both generic and toothless.
