EASE CONGRESS RESOLUTION

22 Sep 2016

At this very moment as we are conducting our congress in Brussels, our fellow Eritreans, especially our Afar people are being violently persecuted by the Eritrean government and its ruling PFDJ junta in Eritrea. Our people, the Eritrean Afar, are exposed to unprecedented human rights violations, including mass murders, extrajudicial killings, rapes, mass displacements, disappearances and tortures. The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Eritrea and the UN Commission of Inquiry
in Eritrea (COI) have confirmed Eritrean government’s systematic targeting of the Eritrean Afar in order to force them from their traditional homeland of (Dankalia), a resources rich and strategic coast along the Red Sea.

While the World is Celebrating the Day of Peace On Sept 21st, Eritreans are longing for Peace and Safety of Their Family Members in Eritrea

Image result for World is Celebrating the Day of Peace

In observance of the International Day of Peace, the world is celebrating this day, the day that was first celebrated in 1982 in dedication to the world peace signifying that everyone has the right to peace, so long one intends to make it a reality.  Since peace comes from inside and from within, it cannot prevail where justice and rights are denied.  It follows that how can there be peace when poverty is enforced and the power of hatred and rule of tyranny has overcome the peace of the land. Only by ending destruction and tyranny, the peace in Eritrea can prevail by giving peace to whole country as well as permitting the return of all refugees to participate in nation building.

Hearing Before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations

18 Sep 2016

“Eritrea: A Neglected Regional Threat”I am grateful to Congressman Smith, the chair, and Congresswoman Bass, the ranking member, for allowing me to contribute to the Subcommittees’ timely review of U.S. policy towards Eritrea. My remarks will describe the current state of affairs inside Eritrea as they relate to US interests in the Horn of Africa. And I will offer some practical suggestions on how the United States might put its relations with Eritrea on a more constructive footing. I had a long meeting with Eritrea’s President Isaias Afwerki in February 2015, and we discussed Eritrea’s relations with the United States at some length. Over the past 18 months I have continued to engage
regularly with the Eritrean government, traveling periodically to Asmara, and communicating regularly with American and European diplomats, human rights researchers, United Nations’ officials, and of course the Eritrean diaspora.

Balancing the tug of war and tilted politics of Eritrea; and disclosing and amending the discriminatory and dogmatic Eritrean dichotomy

18 Sep 2016

In order to understand the Eritrean dogmatic dichotomy, you need to go deeper into the issue and study the mysterious phenomenon of religion broadly to understand it better; then, well, you can write or say about it objectively without being drawn by your own partial religion and politics that control you and me and everybody else in between by becoming our second natures,   unfortanately. Thus first understand the origin of religion, any religion whether it is local religions, western religions or eastern religions... e.g.

The Eritrean Opposition from the Inside Out: Progress or Regress?

15 Sep 2016

The Eritrean opposition formed, on March 12, 1999, a political alliance with the purpose to strengthening their information-sharing and improving their relationship with the people by discussing their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats as well as to achieve common goals.  From the start the opposition members’ sitting at one table has helped them to facilitate better communication and to create a climate of trust and collaboration for their fight against tyranny mobilizing support behind their proposed democratic change in Eritrea.  And, their working together has helped them to achieve uniformity in leadership structure and internal functioning structure that resulted in political like-mindedness or similar ideology.

Eritrea as A Failed state

13 Sep 2016

Is Eritrea a failed state or is there a possibility to save tha nation from being a Failed state? According to different media outlets Eritrean Politics and Economy is as this stage beyond repair.The regime in Eritrea has no intention whatsoever to change its policy.Issayas has told us “ shamelessly I we meet after 50 years! ” and he meant it if you read between the lines, however a guy with a pen name FORO 12 has told us publicly that the PFDJ and its Young PFDJ are butterflies and no more than rhetorics.I wish I could believe FOROleaks! It is however nice to hear stories of failure of the tyrannic regime and its leaders and offsprings. The so called Seleya and tzere Selaya(Spionage and counter siopnage)  of the regime according to the Big Fish FORO12.The killings of more than 6600 Eritren Fighters and recruits and civilians including businessmen and women is really a disaster to the nation.

In his YouTube channel, Mr. Eyob G Selassie (aka ተስፋጽዬን), another YouTube.com evangelist, gives himself the right to harass and hurt fellow Eritrean Muslims and other peace loving citizens and never hesitates to cause them inconvenience and to distract our attention by harming the harmonious relationship that existed for centuries with the dagger of his tongue, by using derogatory language, by slandering them and by making false accusations against them. For his evil act, he has so far earned more than 500 subscribers to his youtube channel and quite a lot of thumbs ups from many of his followers in less than 3 months time.

The Sept. 1st anniversary evaluation of the Political Cultures that got us where we are today, and how the tyrant weakened the Eritrean people

30 Aug 2016

Every year, on the Eritrean Revolution day, it is customary for most of the Eritrean political organizations/groups to report their year-end accomplishments and to proclaim plans for the coming year on how to fortify their fights against the enemies of the Eritrean people.  The priority of these organizations/groups is to ensure the continuation of the Eritrean revolution.  And yearly, the pro-democracy Eritreans - justice seekers reassess their position to seek ways to speed up the defeat of the tyrant by first focusing on uprooting the seeds of disunity that the tyrant sowed to weaken all the pro-democracy groups.

Parliament? Whose Parliament? Appointed by whom? Part-II

Open message that requests clear answers  “While fighting with hyena… we should be alert not to be fooled by fox”.  Just to continue my topic from last time… where are the original inhabitants and land owners of the country today called USA (Red Indians)?  I am compelled to ask such questions because I believe that there are similarities and convergences between our case (Eritrean) and theirs (Red Indians).  I am scrupulously asking that we may face similar fate… that’s the reason for such questionings, because I believe that the quagmire we are now, is heading towards that direction.

The aim of the workshop was to give skills and knowledge to the political organizations that have similar political porgram in the opposition camp.

Pubic Meeting and Discussions in San Diego

Eighteen years since the abandonment of the “ratified” constitution, and PFDJ triggered engagement in multiple border wars with Eritrea’s neighbours, the struggle by the Eritrean opposition parties against the authoritarian regime is yielding fruition evidenced by the palpable movement, and sizable mass convergence to Geneva on June the 23rd 2016.  The heroic exposition of the crimes against humanity committed by the regime for the past 40 years presented in a series of Smerrr Paltalk deliberations by the compatriot penamed “Mr. Foro” who started the truth and reconciliation testimonials in his own person- is a tangible sign that the regime’s days are very numbered.
