This is issue nr. 10 of "The Dawn", an important leftist periodical issued monthly between 1974-1976, associated with the Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Party [Ya'Ityopya Hezb 'Abyotawi Parti] ["Goh came into being right after the February revolution. It was founded by two enterprising women, Sara and Mulu.... Goh became the magazine of choice for Zematcha students, teachers, and the most educated section of the population....Goh had to pass government censorship to be published. While the situation was relatively liberal at this time, no one would write anything that was openly critical of the government. Goh, under the editorial guidance of Mezy, was pushing the envelope and testing the limits of the available freedom by writing more and more radical pieces that would have been unthinkable in previous periods....[Later] the party had very much control of the magazine through the four of us. Neither Sara nor Mulu was ever bothered by what was now becoming an obvious association of the paper with EPRP, or if they did, they did not raise any objection.” —Former EPRP member Mohamed Yimam in " Wore Negari", pp. 75-80, as quoted on the abyotawi blogspot].
