Angola update - HRW

Human Rights Watch claims protests in Angola, inspired by and similar to those in Egypt and Tunisia, are being stifled by a government crackdown. Journalists, activists and rap musicians have apparently been arrested and human rights lawyers and opposition politicians have received death threats.

More here and here and here. Also, an opinion piece that attempts to argue that everyone supports the protests and fear is disappearing and people didn't show up for the protests only because of fear.
