Blackout Ep. 4: Leaks from Eritrea, Africa’s North Korea
Eritrea is the most censored country in the world, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists and Reporters Sans Frontières. Often referred to as Africa’s North Korea, the Eritrean government controls the flow of information with vigilance, restricting any dissenting voices from reaching the people.
As a result, Eritrean activists are forced to get creative. Through pirate radio, cold calls, messages on banknotes and posters put up in the dead of night, dissidents find ways to generate the only resistance they can.
VICE News follows members of the Eritrean diaspora community in Europe as they run radio stations, maintain online opposition sites and help to organize those still in Eritrea.
