Around 10,000 people protested in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa last Sunday. 

It was called by the recently launched opposition Semayawi party. 

It demands the release of imprisoned opposition leaders and journalists. 

Protesters also demanded action on unemployment, inflation and corruption. 

This was the first large political protest in Ethiopia since a government crackdown after a disputed election in 2005 led to over 200 deaths.
