The Experience of National Dialogue for Democratic change in Eritrea

06 Mar 2016

Any organization has three levels of action( strategic, management and operative levels) and two methods of steering control from below and control from the above( Decentralization) to advance the work spirit and commitment of all actors in the process of democratization. Here in this article I am not going to deal with organizational decentralization but our experience in conducting national dialogues at this time of transition from dictatorship to democracy.

As the Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in Eritrea continue to research and work diligently in regards to the Human Rights issues in Eritrea; we Eritreans residing in North America, will continue to support the Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in Eritrea in 2016, just as we successfully did last year in October 2015. In order to continue to support all efforts made by the Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in Eritrea, it is important for all cities in North America to mobilize their respective areas. We are calling for all cities in North America, to elect representatives, to assist in mobilizing and organizing, all efforts for the Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in Eritrea 2016. The united effort created and executed "FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE" for the Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in Eritrea 2015, will be equally needed to ensure the success and final outcome for the Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in Eritrea in 2016.

To reconcile with the irreconcilably partisan politics of Eritrea

06 Apr 2016

In an era of war and devastation committed by the West against, societies in the Middle East and Africa, the root cause of all destruction lies in an area along  the strategic route of the Red Sea Coast. This cancerous entity has done a colossal damage to its neighborhoods and its own core supporters inside Eritrea. The regime of Isayas Afewrki and its monopolistic political entity is successively pilfering its own people and country. Today the people of Eritrea are the most unfortunate and downtrodden folks in Africa.

So the Minister of the English Reformed Church said to the followers of his church..."Go in peace to love and serve the Lord".

Bein gderot Between Fences

15 Feb 2016

Holot ist ein Internierungslager in der israelischen Wüste nahe der ägyptischen Grenze. Dorthin werden Asylsuchende aus Eritrea und dem Sudan gebracht, die zwar nicht in ihre Heimatländer abgeschoben werden können, denen die israelische Politik aber jegliche Perspektive in Israel verwehrt. Obschon kein Gefängnis, wird es durch den dreimal täglich stattfindenden Appell und die isolierte Lage faktisch dazu. Mit in dieser prekären Situation steckenden Menschen initiieren Chen Alon und Avi Mograbi einen Theaterworkshop. Den Prinzipien des „Theater der Unterdrückten“ folgend, das sich als ästhetisches Mittel zum politischen und sozialen Wandel versteht, werden Szenen aus dem eigenen Leben zum Ausgangspunkt genommen.

There has been a buzz in the social media around what I am said to have said in the Frankfurt Workshop in November 2015. In taking the initiative to make the record straight and put the debate in its context, I would like to offer my apology for any confusion that the buzz might have caused and plead for a proper understanding of what was said in the spirit it was said.
