09 Aug 2016

" Moving forward by honouring the past" Managing conflicts requires far-sigheted leadership. Are the leaders of the Erimedrek and the UEDF well prepared to do this job? How much are they free partisan politics? The role of facilitator must be clarified based on the concepts of neutrality and impartiality.

Pubic Meeting and Discussions in San Diego

03 Aug 2016

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.

Colonel Hailesillase Hagos(Weddi Hagos) has escaped a perfect ambush by the gallant fighters of DMLEK, for the second time, on 17/7/2016. He is the most wanted and notorious of PFDJ regime and hopefully he will face his final verdict in near future. He has, for the first time, escaped well studied and perfectly chosen target and ambushed in 2015 at November, 2015 at a site called Binbilna. He is the one detaining ethnic Kunama with out discrimination and in mass. He will be either killed at the hand of DMLEK fighters or escorted to Hague to face the real verdict!

Victory to the heroes of DMLEK!!!!

More than 100drs of thousands of Eritrean young and old, women and children and also friends of Eritrea died in the war of Independance during the last 30 plus years.Every family has sacrified one or more of its loved children in those dark years of struggle when the world community ignored our cry and even some supper powers supported and supplied the mighty military of Ethiopia.The USA Marine and army supported the Ethiopian monarchy with all kinds of heavy and light armours, plus planes flying in the Eritrean sky helped with sofisticated spying, and gave a Special reconnaissance(SR), which changed in one way or the other the power balance in the fields.

Warmongering and the fate of our Youth (Eritrean Youth)

17 Jun 2016

“Eritrea and Ethiopia should settle their boarder dispute,said UN General Secretary.” Eritrean government is an illegal and unrepresentative to the Nation, however so far all the wars committed are only decided by one man and his foot soldiers. As if the 30 years of protracted war for Independence is not enough, the regime has built a military state of which 10% of the school age and senior members of the population are engaged in military drills and carrying arms. The main reason given to these army of non proffessional soldiers, is that the country is in No War No Peace situation with our neighbours, mainly with our southern neighbour Ethiopia. This position was created to sustain his power in the country and to spoil all developments in the Horn of African countries, including Djibouti.

The last war!

17 Jun 2016

The UN commission of inquiry last week’s announcement was a massive smack to the regime in Eritrea. Not only that the report has left them disgraced in front of the international community, yet it has also caused frustration to the point that they became so hostile in dealing with the world .All they have been doing was overreacting out of fear. No wonder then waging war with Ethiopia can be a technique used by PFDJ to divert the world’s attention away from the serious charges of grave human rights violations against the regime. But full scale war, for a country that has been languishing for many years, would be unbearable and can have the risk of self breakdown.

Eritrean Refugee Tragedy in the Mediterranean Sea as Eritreans Celebrate the 25th Independence Day Anniversary

14 Jun 2016

 

It was just about two weeks ago that we celebrated the independence day of Eritrea; the day that, through the blood, sweet and tremendous sacrifices of her people, Eritrea became an independent country, 25- years ago on May 24, 1991.  All over the globe, Eritreans gathered to celebrate the momentous day of independence, most importantly, however, the gatherings were to mourn, remember and pay respect to the many Eritreans that have lost and continue to loss their lives in the torture chambers of the prisons of Eritrea, in the hands of the human traffickers in the Sahara and Sanai Deserts, and in the merciless seas of the Mediterranean and Red Seas. These were also gatherings to say enough to the suffering and the inhuman condition that the Eritreans are under in their country and out of their country in search of a better life for them and for their families.   These gatherings were also remembrances of the death of over 300 Eritreans that lost their lives in the Mediterranean Sea at the shores of Lampedusa, Italy, in October 2013.

WHEN PEOPLE risk their lives to evade armed border guards or pack rickety boats at sea, you can be sure the conditions they are fleeing are frightful. This is as true for the persecuted Rohingya Muslims of Burma who set sail on packed vessels in the Andaman Sea as for the escapees who manage to flee the horrors of North Korea’s prison camps. And it is true for people fleeing Eritrea, a country that won independence from Ethiopia in 1993 and has become a human rights disaster.
