THE DIFFERENT ASMARA OF OCTOBER 31, 2017!

07 Nov 2017

The event of 31 October 2017 in Asmara was unique because nothing of that sort occurred in the city in over two decades - i.e. except North Korea-like regime orchestrated parades. For change, the 31 October gathering was of political in nature in our State of
Fear, Eritrea. And believe it or not, it was a peaceful demonstration until it was interrupted within hours by massive gun shots from the usually merciless security forces of the repressive regime.

Forum for National Dialogue (FND)

07 Nov 2017

Almost four years ago, on Sunday, February the 2nd 2014, The Forum for National Dialogue (FND) announced its formation to the public. The event raised hope and expectations as well as questions. While the FND acknowledges some worthy achievements, it has not effectively capitalized on the public’s generous and unearned good will. It failed to transform itself into a vibrant and vigorous organization with clearly defined structures and procedures that allows members/associates to fully take ownership of the cause.

YEAR OF HOPE: FROM RUNNING TO FREEDOM TO RETURNING BACK HOME TO RE-BUILD AND RE-CONSTRUCT

03 Jan 2018

Leaving home has never been new to Eritreans. Though there are no data available, we might assume that it could be traced as back as the 1940s and 1950s and the physical mobility was linked to the idea that individuals moved from Western Eritrea to the Sudan, from Semhar and Dankalia to the Middle East, and from the Eritrean highlands to the Ethiopian plateau, looking for greener pastures.  With the advent of 1960s,

Modern Education Development, Challenges and Current State in Eritrea (1839 to 2016)

30 Dec 2017

In 1962 Ethiopia finally annexed Eritrea, thereafter the progress of education started to go into reverse as educators became the target of repression, incarceration and torture  in the late 1950s.  The situation became extremely hostile for any kind of open youth activism inside Eritrea during the 30 years of Ethiopian occupation, Prior to annexation,  even though  the Ethiopia government tried to  hamper the development of education, during academic year 1961/62, the total number of students reached 38,000 of which 1,372 were in academic high schools and vocational institutions (see Statistical Abstract, Addis Ababa, 1963) p.106.,

Protection for muslims in Eritrea

31 Oct 2017

From friends who fled from Eritrea to my country and also on social media I learned that life is becoming more and more difficult for muslims in Eritrea. The government wants to close Islamic schools in Asmara and the people who protest against this are put in prison. Women are arrested because they wear a hijab and men are arrested for the sole reason that they are Muslims. The Eritrean government should stop this and respect the freedom of religion for all people. I ask the UNCHR, all Eritrean Embassies and world leaders to put pressure on the Eritrean government to stop this and to force them to respect the freedom of religion of all their inhabitants.

Seyoum Harestai and Pals Gathered in Akriya 55 years Ago -- for Demonstration!!

19 Dec 2017

As we, old comrades-in-struggle of Patriot Seyoum Ogbamichael (Harestai) solemnly mark today, 17 December 2017, the 12th year of his sudden and untimely passing away in a poorly-equipped Addis Ababa hospital, we do remember him for so many vividly memorable deeds and events, some of them resonating well with the Akriya of 31 October 2017. Martyr Seyoum was present with his schoolmates at a meeting of student demonstrators in Akriya 55 years ago!! And, ironically, those schoolmates of Seyoum included Eritrea's autocrat, Isaias Afeworki, who is today against everything that his generation dreamt of. Seyoum's schoolmates in May 1962 included: Woldedawit, Michael Ghaber, Mussie Tesfamichael, Haile and Isaias.
As every genuine patriot worth his/her salt would confirm it - and forgetting the bla bla of

The role of military and security forces in transition from dictatorship to democracy

16 Dec 2017

The role played by the Zimbabwe military and security forces shows that how much the military leadership who led the downfall of the Mugabe dictatorship were professional and preserving national interests instead of serving the dictatorship. This shows that Zimbabwe military was not corrupted by bribes, spoils of office, ethnic manipulation of appointments and promotions. Comparing the Eritrean military and security forces with that of Zimbabwe, the Eritrean military is not professional but enforced paramilitaries loyal to the regime or serving the interests of the regime.

As Clown Alamin Mohmmed Saied, the PFDJ non-chief chief, never ceases to  amuse us, this time he did  remarkably with his little and distorted knowledge about secularism, and the  deep roots of religion in the Eritrean society; topics that are too vast and too complex for his limited intellect.
