Eritrea: The need for the “enough is enough movement” to play a leading role in the advocacy campaign.

The justice seekers need to define their priorities and engage in campaign activities. I hope the management committee of the USA “Baito” in Washington and in other places in Europe, Canada, and Australia, draw an action plan (Road map) that guides their activism. Once they organises in such way it makes easier to coordinate global demonstration on specific serious issues. It is fundamentally crucial that the Yeakel movement puts the pains and suffering of the people at the centre of the advocacy campaign. For Serious work the association must be institutionalized. Members must pay small membership fees. There must be an office and full or part time paid workers.

Eritrea: The Sawa Parade

What is the meaning of Eritrea’s decision to stage a major military parade at this precise moment? A few days ago Eritrea celebrated the 25th anniversary of the establishment of Sawa Military Training Centre and the launching of the National Service Programme.  It was a dual ceremony - the graduation of members of the 32nd round national service was also conducted under the theme “Sawa: The Perfect Choice for Sustainability.”

Eritrea: our nuanced silence in the face of brutal dictatorship

One of the things that continues to baffle the world (the rest of the world) about Eritreans, is the fact that there are people who continue to support the regime that is so obviously causing untold misery to their own people. My own fascination with ‘supporters’  of pfdj (the goons as I have come to know them) is only ever paralleled by my fascination of DIA the tyrant that they worship. However from the perspectives of our long-term wellbeing as a nation, understanding the goons is more crucial than understanding DIA. Here is why….

As we observed Isaias rejoice during the time leading up to the signing of the peace agreement – his silly grins, chest-beating instances, tongue-tied-ness and more – we knew right away there was something amiss.

Where will PFDJ hide when the Sun Rises in Eritrea?

Will there ever be a eureka moment for PFDJ members when they finally realize that the country is going to the dogs? Will they ever see the light and do the right thing? At the moment they are locked in a structure of scoring points with those who are campaigning to bring a government worthy of the Eritrean people. But they are dodging the reality on the ground without any signs of shrinking back. No scruples, no ethics, and no reflection. They are indeed moving about with plenty of blind spots. And that is why PFDJ’s activity is suicidal. Read More ...

Eritrea: Aiming Beyond ‘Enough is Enough’ Campaign

Do our young activists wish simply to condemn the oppression and protest against the system like the previous generation of activists?  Or, do they wish to end the oppression, and replace it peacefully with a system of greater freedom, democracy, and justice? Many old activists assumed that if they denounced the oppression strongly enough, and protested long enough, the desired change would somehow be realized. That assumption was not entirely correct. They have managed to bring the problems Eritrea is experiencing to the attention of the international community, which was advantageous in many aspects of the struggle, but they failed short in achieving the desired outcome.  Read More ...

And what are Eritreans experiencing under the Isaias era?  Eritrea is producing more refugees than ever; the resourceful citizens are totally blocked off from pursuing their business acumen; our children are put in perpetual slavery-like conditions under the pretext of National Service;  thousands of ex-fighters had left the country seeking refuge abroad, villages have been drained of their inhabitants, the regime is looked down upon by the international community; Eritreans who live abroad have avoided the prospect of returning home altogether and more.  Please mind the fact that we haven’t even delved into the corrosion of civil institutions, disappearances, corruption, control freakery, hollow existence and more.  Eritreans are reminded of all the above.  We continue to witness how the government is using illegitimate tactics to get around the real Independence Day.

Eritrea: Unfiltered Notes: The Circular History of Abyssinia

If durable peace is the real objective, Abiy and Ethiopia cannot afford to ignore the pain of the Eritrean people, because they will have to face a betrayed and wounded population after Isaias is gone. Those wounds will heal too but why postpone progress by repeating bad history? Why invite a champion of poverty who delights in demolishing lives, homes and businesses in Eritrea, to a sugar factory opening ceremony in Ethiopia? Why all this at the expense of border demarcation? Are Ethiopians willing to accept a psychopath as their new emperor prolonging the bad memories of our past? By embracing Isaias so unconditionally, Abiy can only come out dirtier – retarding our joint future in the process. Read More ...

St. Mary of Debre Sina: The Unseen “Lalibela” in Eritrea

Ethiopians and Eritreans are one people, said in Amharic the foreign minister and the president of the State of Eritrea to the Ethiopian people during their visit of Addis Ababa, in July, 2018. Isaias was feted as a hero and received traditional Ethiopian warrior outfits and a live camel: the emblem of his state. He also attended with fanfare the opening of the old Eritrean embassy. The irony is that these figures, who are the elite of the war for separation from Ethiopia, banned for years Amharic songs from bars and other recreation centers in Eritrea, and were tirelessly working to either diminish or erase the cultural and civilization legacy of not only Axum, Zagwe, but anything that followed it. When such a project seems daunting and impossible, a revisionist narrative of a civilization that predates Axum, had lately been in vogue. When attempts to re-write the ancient history of the region is difficult and hard to convince, they promote, advance and perpetuate the Italian colonial period, as their identity. Read More ...
