By TesfaNews,

A brand new, anti-Eritrea Parliamentary grouping called The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Eritrea has been launched yesterday (9 March) following months of intense campaigns, blackmailing and arm twisting by a group called Eritrea Focus, an association of all Eritrea regime change advocate NGOs, human rights organizations, exile and refugee groups and individuals.

According to the statement released by the Group, the purpose of forming such a stand alone, new anti-Eritrea advocacy group in a Parliamentary level on Eritrea, within the UK House of Lords, is in a response to the lack of awareness and high-level debates on the worsening situation in the country.

But what are these ‘worsening situations’ in the country that warrants the concern of some Parliamentarians in the UK House of Lords? Why is Eritrea getting so much attention around European Parliamentarians and what are their motives? What if their ‘concern’ has nothing to do with democracy or human rights in Eritrea?

Well, the answer for these questions squarely rests on a certain leaked 2011 Amnesty International secret internal memo that details a plan on how to instigate regime change in Eritrea using the ‘reasonable‘ amount of grants they received with Human Rights Watch (HRW) from the U.S. State Department, and by extension from the then Secretary of State Hilary Clinton.

Eritreans Sit-in Protest on Downing Street Enters 45 Day

By British-Eritrean Community,

A massive and successful Eritrean demonstration was held opposite the UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s number 10 Downing Street residence on Friday August 7, 2015. This came 34 days after the July 3rd, 2015 mass demonstration.

It was in continuation of the once monthly event which henceforth will be held on the first Friday of every coming month for the foreseeable future. The next mass demonstration will thus be on Friday 4th September. This event was part of and in continuation of the historic non-stop 24/7 demonstration that started on the 26th of June 2016 by a single patriotic Eritrean, and has been on since then and is now on its 45th day.
