Eritrea: Release Patriarch Abune Antonios

19 Jan 2017

Patriarch Abune Antonios

WASHINGTON, D.C. – January 20, 2017 marks the 11-year anniversary of the Eritrean government’s illegal removal of Abune Antonios as the rightful Patriarch of the Eritrean Orthodox Church, the nation’s largest religious community. The Patriarch has been detained since 2007: His “crime” was his refusal to excommunicate 3,000 parishioners who opposed the government.

There is a phenomenon that  has become the subject of  alarming talk during the last couple of months in some Eritrean opposition news coverage (specifically Radio Erena and Radio Medrek), to the extent that we cannot shut our eyes to. That is the phenomenon of corruption, which has never been absent from the news headlines for decades (as a major problem since the day of independence),

Eritreans are as endangered as wild animals hounted by PFDJ & its Leader PIA

26 Dec 2016

In the month of December, we as people should reflect on the past 11 months, and promise to our selves what we should be our next program or the new idea for the coming year. It is sad we cannot invent new ideas or technical objects in the era of PFDJ, Isaias Afewrki and his global fund raisers

institutions. I am worried for our future existence as people and as members of the animal kingdom.

Well,have we the warranty to continue our existence as people of a nation for the coming years? We will see together the challenges we are facing at the moment.

Eritreans everywhere and the world community at large have really been stunned and shocked to hear and read that Israel, a country founded by Jewish refugees escaping persecution in Europe and the Middle East and built from the ashes of the Holocaust, has been shutting its eyes and heart to the sufferings and pain of the Eritrean and other African asylum seekers, who had crossed its barbed-wire fenced border, fleeing severe persecution

Whenever we hear that a leader of a country pardoned some prisoners on the occasion of a new year or on Independence Day, many of us express our dismay, with a deeply-seated feeling of resentment, that Eritrea is an exception. We notice this expression of dismay among individuals, families, communities, and even the opposition media. A good case in point was a news item of Radio Erena on December 15, 2016 broadcast in which it was indicated that the Tanzanian President, John Magufuli, pardoned 5,678 prisoners on the occasion of the 55th anniversary of the country’s independence, citing other examples that included Kenya, Cuba and Thailand, and expressing dismay that this has never happened during the 26 years of rule of the Eritrean Government

A satire by Asselman: The zonal administration of the Eritrean regime seems more worried and concerned about wild animals than human beings. While Eritreans of all walks are worried about the land proclamation, use, policies and the way it is handled by the regime, the regime does not care about the human aspects but about the wild animals. The reason is one and the same. Currently and in Eritrea, wild not domestic animals are large in number than human beings.

Who is Tadesse Chamo (Weddi Chamo)?

20 Feb 2017

Tadesse Chamo is former freedom fighter of EPLF organization. Even though he is from the low rank officials, he has direct contact with the Eritrean President, Dictator Esaias Afeworki. As a result, he is one of the officials that belittle their leaders and has all the power to detain and kill innocent people as he wishes. Weddi Chamo has very bad reputation while working as a security agent and has committed several crimes against local people in different parts of the country. He came to the kunama land (Erkulami) four years ago for his devilish duty with the title of head of platoon. As a result, he resided in Gonye subzone in a kunama village called Dase; thirty kilometers from Barentu town, and started to organize and lead the security squad, the civil administration and the local village elders with their militia forces and military regiment 57 as a whole. The atrocities and crimes Weddi Chamo has committed around Dase area and against Kunama people were:-

With thousands of political prisoners, severe cases of torture, and the vast majority of the population being subject to forced military conscription and labour for an indefinite period of time, Eritrea has become one of the top refugee producing countries. From those fleeing, many are falling victim of the global human trafficking and organ trade, often with the active involvement of Eritrea’s military officials.

I bet you’ve never heard of at least half of these 100 Eritreans who made the news in recent years

30 Nov 2016

Many, if not most of you will have heard of HONY, Brandon Stanton’s Humans of New York website and its associated social media outlets. A little over a year ago, HONY was highlighting the plight of Syrian refugees and eliciting heart-warming compassion from its readers. I too was touched by HONEY’s reportages. I was inspired to think about what I could do to motivate my compatriots to focus on what makes us, Eritreans, humans of shared destiny. Something that hasn’t been done. Something that brings out the warm-and-fuzzy in us as it relates to our shared history without trivializing our current challenges or absolving us from tackling them. That line of thinking ended up becoming the genesis of the issue I am writing about, the story of humansoferitrea.com.

In Eritrea, as elsewhere in the world, to determine to what extent  the society is free, we need to look into who are detained, roughed up, tortured, killed,raped, subjected to invasive state surveillance without any evidence of wrongdoing, persecuted and imprisoned for decades or executed without any due process of law,or disadvantaged politically, socially and economically.
