ESFNA update: game cancelled to protest jail of Teddy

free_teddy01 july 2008 – The soccer game between journalists and artists which was scheduled for Thursday at the RFK Stadium in Washington DC was cancelled, the coordinator of the game Dawit Kebede said. The main reason according to the coordinator is the incarceration of artist Teddy Afro who is supposed to play by the artists’ side. “We don’t feel good playing game as our friend is unjustly imprisoned.” An artist told EMF. Journalists are also bitter this year as they didn’t still get a press pass for a reason they do not know yet. “It looks a vendetta for our critical reporting against ESFNA on the money case.” One of a journalist said. The yearly traditional game between journalists and artist at ESFNA had attracted thousands and was a fun among Ethiopians. High numbers of people were expected in DC to watch the soccer tournament but on Monday the number was extremely small.  (Picture by EMF. Many people were wearing a T-Shirt read Free Teddy Afro.)
