Ethiopian activists in the northern city of Gondar have called for a three-day stay-away, the Ethiopia opposition channel Esat is reporting.
 
The strike started on Monday and Esat reports that schools, businesses and transportation have been paralysed, the BBC’s media monitoring service says.
 
This comes a week after the government declared a state of emergency in the face of a wave of deadly protests.
Political activities “likely to cause disturbances, violence, hatred and distrust among the people” are one of the things that have been banned.
BBC Monitoring says that several other opposition news services are mentioning the stirke, but a government official told the VOA’s Amharic service that the strike had not been heeded.
Gondar was the scene of anti-government protests in August.
