As June and July are notoriously known for radical events in history, June of the current year has witnessed a sudden declaration by three Gulf countries, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, supported by Egypt and blessed by their new sponsor (President Donald Trump),  severing their diplomatic relations with their neighbour Qatar; the diplomatic rupture immediately turning into a full-fledged blockade imposed on  Qatar, in a way similar to the one on Gaza Strip (by Israel and Egypt); something unprecedented in depth and breadth in inter-Arab relations.

It is also confirmed that no civil movement could succeed without the knowledge about the theory and practice of civil resistance.  Today, we have a wealth of information and source material about civil resistance movement, including training manuals, strategy-building tools, facilitation guides,

Our beloved uncle Nurhussien Mohammed Hagos Abera had passed away this morning, June 6th of 2017, after a prolonged illness. He will be buried tomorrow, June 8th, in Maryland (Washington DC area).

Mr. Nurhussein Abera graduated with a degree in law from the University of Cairo in 1953, which led him to become a prominent intellectual of his day. The presence, the guidance and the inspirations of my dearest uncle will be remembered by me now and forever.


He was one of Asmarino Jeberti’s and among few students who graduated in Law School from University of Cairo in 1953. He and his late brother, Dr. Yassin Mohammed Hagos Abera, have acquired remarkable reputations as scholars.


He and Dr. Yassin had a plan to change the education system for young Eritreans  and provide them a high quality education. But, due to the political situation at the time, the Haile Sellasie Regime had deprived Eritreans of the opportunity to  pursue quality education.


Nurhussien Aberra was known to encourage young Eritrean Muslims to pursue their education. When the Eritrean politics became worse and worse, he had migrated to USA.

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),

I begin this post by drawing a parallel between Atse Isias, and a drowning sailor who desperately flailing to stay afloat. As the all-faceted crisis has steadily continued to sharply deepen at a dangerous pace, in the economic, political, security, social, cultural and diplomatic spheres, and Eritrea has secured its place at the bottom of the ladder in all world reports (as the black sheep of Africa), during his 26-year reign of terror, he resembles a man grasping for driftwood on choppy seas.

It is extremely disturbing to hear from foreign sources, since October 2015, about the leasing of the Port of Assab to the United Arab Emirates for military purposes by the Eritrean ruling gang. The most detailed report has been produced by Stratfor (an American geopolitical intelligence platform) and published on TesfaNews on October 8, 2016 under the title: Analysis of the UAE Military Base in Assab-Eritrea (https://www.tesfanews.net/analysis-uae-military-base-assab-eritrea/).

A View Into the Eritrean Regime

14 May 2017

Story image for eritrean news from AllAfrica.com

Eritreans were told and taught extensively through media, seminars, and training that they are unique, while the 'Sawa' military training along with other social networks are hugely invested in creating false sense of identity in the minds of Eritreans. As a result, they started to believe that the international community stand against them and their country. The foreign policy of Eritrea is, thus, designed to spread mistrust and hatred upon the next door countries. And, the citizens are made to think that way too. After this, Eritrea begun to be ruled at will. Then, the current agonies begun to take roots.

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:-

Bulldozing houses in Eritrea was not a crime that started in March 2015.  Prior to that, Keren and Hashala were among those badly hit by the regime’s bulldozers, leaving thousands of citizens without any shelter and with wounded dignity. Even our port city of Massawa, its centuries-old historical palace, and some of its houses, known to UNESCO as a part of the Eritrean cultural heritage, had their share of demolition before and after the turn of the century. Here we need to stop and briefly see the significance of the demolished houses and structure in the port city of Massawa.
