Our Baito : An Eritrean Coalition in Need of Healing

In the rhetorical sense the slogan “We have to struggle together” has been articulated so often by each organization there was nothing innovative about the idea. The coming together, with all the maneuvering and counter-maneuvering, under one roof was a measurable paradigm shift with a potential for a breakthrough in the complicated and untidy Eritrean opposition”s politics.

ABANDONING HUMAN RIGHTS TO CURB MIGRATION

In attempting to curb migration, the EU has been making deals with Turkey to shut down the flow of refugees and migrants through Turkey. Whilst there have been concerns about the way Europe is handling the migration route in the east, the situation in Libya is very different because Italy and the Libyan authorities have agreed to block the movement of refugees into Europe via the central Mediterranean route regardless of their protection needs. After the fall of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s regime, many Africans, and particularly darker-skinned Africans, found their situation to be more precarious as fighting led many Africans to be internally displaced and subject to abuse and arbitrary imprisonment. The people who own and run the “detention” camps, where thousands of Africans who have committed no crime now dwell, are involved in human trafficking and organised crime. Read More ...

Every New Country Celebrates the Heroes of Its Revolution: But Why Do We Never Hear a Word about Bitweded?

So why have most of us never heard of this hero? Because, above all, Bitweded is courageous. He is the type of person who speaks his mind and does not easily bow his head before authority, especially if he thinks it is a matter of justice or true loyalty to his country. It was this admirably strong character trait that put him in conflict with Issayas Afwerki, Eritrea’s unelected president. When Bitweded spoke out about the leader’s dictatorial tendencies, his fate was sealed and he was falsely accused and detained. Apart for a few weeks temporarily at liberty, Bitweded has been in prison since 6 October 1991, and, since 1994, *has been held in solitary confinement. Read More ...

Abrahami, whose life was cut short at the age of 40, deserves to be remembered for his live performances that used to mesmerize Eritreans all over the world. He had become the most internationally known artist Eritrea had ever produced. His music was appealing to both young and old, ex-fighters and civilians, as well as Eritreans and non-Eriteans alike. His CDs were widely circulated in community stores and major music outlets. Read More ...

Faust in Modern Ethiopia

In 1974, Haile Selassie, the absolute monarch was told that he had to abdicate; he was then led into a Volkswagen car out of his old palace. The monarch accepted his fate and was noted to have said, “If it is God’s will…” Like all the emperors of past Ethiopia, he was not only a ruler but head of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. His subjects in the rural areas, small towns in Ethiopia, particularly in the North considered him a religious ruler. What then explains his alleged bargain with the devil, Korit? Read More ...

My Passport: A passport that does not pass ports

The story of my ordeal goes back to the summer of 2010 when I received some good, but equally challenging, news from a university in the United States. I was offered a place for a graduate course on the condition that I meet the language requirements for admission. To prove my language capability, therefore, I had to sit for Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or its equivalent, the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). And I went to the American Centre in Khartoum to register for the test but I was turned away mainly because I could not produce an Eritrean passport or residence permit in Sudan. Then, I tried the British Council but I was told that I was inadmissible for the same reasons. Read More ...

The Flourishing Resistance Songs of Eritrea

In the past it was the power of the young that changed the world of Eritrea. Moreover, the young artists of the time, the likes of Tewelde Redda who stuck their necks out to echo the mood of the young and the rebellious generation, dared to confront the system through their music. That is how the resistance movement reached a point of no return – through the protest songs that planted the seeds of patriotism in the minds of the young. They eventually rose up against oppression, the resolve of their browbeaten parents, and more so, against the occupying force. That is how the world of Eritrea was forever altered in the days gone by. Read More ...

Serious Concerns for the Health and Safety of Patriarch Antonios, Head of the Eritrean Orthodox Church in Eritrea

Reliable reports have indicated that the rightful patriarch of the Eritrean Orthodox Church, His Holiness Abune Antonios, has been moved to a different accommodation, apparently a ‘better’ building. The situation of the patriarch has not changed however: he is still under house arrest guarded by government security agents and even unable to go to church to pray. Patriarch Antonios has been the victim of the Eritrean government since 2006, when he was relieved of administrative powers, eventually deposed at the behest of the regime and kept under house arrest. His courage in resisting calls by the authorities to submit his church to total governmental control have made him the victim of an enforced deposition, which has not recognised by the true church.

Yemane Gebreab should be arrested and prosecuted

Alberizzi had in the past pleaded with ambassador Fessehazion Petros to abandon the regime and ask for asylum in Italy. He had pledged to Fessehazion that he would defend him if he did so. He extends the same invitation to Yemane Gebreab, asking him to denounce the wrongdoings of the Eritrean regime, writing “Yemane, go on; you should escape too” In an interview with German radio Deutschlandfunk in 2015, Yemane Gebreab claimed that Eritreans in Eritrea can criticise the government openly and loudly, but the reality is that one of the main driving forces for the Eritrean mass migration is precisely that they cannot speak out in public, for fear of experiencing arbitrary detention or enforced disappearance.

Additional information on the Situation of Abune Antonios from members of Arbi Harnet in Asmara

The Patriarch had, during his deposition in 2007, excommunicated Abune Lucas, the priest who has been unofficially leading the Church in recent years, and several other senior clergy.  And this effectively means if the Abune Antonios dies without lifting the excommunication, Abune Lucas can never officially take his position in accordance to canonical law. The ‘reconciliation’ effort is thus believed, by many, to be orchestrated to put pressure on Abune Antonios to lift the excommunication and prepare the grounds for the inauguration of Abune Lucas.
