September 1st, 2020 is the 59th anniversary of the liberation struggle, reminds us of mammoth sacrifices our people made to assert nationhood against all odds.

BY FIKREJESUS AMHAZION (PhD)

It is nearly the end of August. The beginning of September will soon be upon us. In Eritrea, that generally means several things. That the rainy and wet keremti (summer) season is almost at its end, ready to give way to the quewi (harvesting) season.

That a vast swathe of the countryside and mountains will soon be covered in sheets of green and dotted by colorful embaba (flowers). That juicy and delicious beles fruit can be found on every street corner. That Meskel and Yohannes, those special festive occasions, are around the corner.

BY SIMON HAGOS and RUTH TESFAMARIAM

The vain attempt by western powers and their soft power tools to portray Ethiopia as a stable and regional superpower to recon is slowly abrading. It is worth noting that, Ethiopia is a product of western powers strategy in which a meticulously crafted policy of “creating chaos and manage them” can benefit handsomely.

Eritrea and Double Standards – A Historical Perspective

The double standards characterization the international system can best be illustrated by the case of Eritrea.

By Simon Weldemichael,

Double standards have become a regular and widely used feature of international political affairs, and the international system is known for its differing treatment of countries and individuals. There exist no standard, impartial rules for all, and genuine cooperation and partnership have gone astray. Instead, domination, confrontation and exploitation have assumed a central role. Although the international system has passed through multipolar, bipolar and unipolar power arrangements, double standards have remained a constant.

Eritrea: Long Live September 1st

“September 1st, 2015 is the 54th anniversary of the liberation struggle, reminds us of mammoth sacrifices our people made to assert nationhood against all odds” – @hawelti

BY BEREKET KIDANE

September 1st is the anniversary of the first shot fired in the armed struggle for Eritrea’s independence popularly known as “ghedli” in Tigrigna or “Sawra” in Arabic.

The day’s events are generally referred to as the first military engagement between Eritrean combatants and the Ethiopian Army. Continue reading Eritrea: Long Live September 1st

ሃንቀውታ ህዝቢ ኤርትራ ዝጓዕጸጸ ውሳነ 390 A (V) ውድብ ሕቡራት ሃገራት

63 years ago, on December 2nd, 1950, the UN adopted Resolution 390(V)A based on lies denying Eritrea its right to independence. It claimed it was passed taking the wishes of Eritreans into consideration. But why all the injustices upon these peace-loving people comes only through the UN?

Federating Eritrea with Ethiopia. Eritrea was the only former European colony, out of the 53 African nations, that was denied the right to decolonization by the UN

The Role of Sinclair Petroleum in Federating Eritrea with Ethiopia

When oil becomes thicker than blood.

BY ARBA GORASH

Ethiopian Ogaden region is sitting on one of the world’s largest untapped oil and natural gas reserves that could put many oil-rich gulf countries out of business.

British and American oil companies have deliberately left the Ogaden region untouched as a strategic reserve against future oil shortages.

But energy-hungry countries such as China and Sweden are now eyeing to drill for oil in the region, and this in turn has unsettled the British and American oil companies who believe they have inherent rights over the oil deposits by virtue of Ethiopia being their client state.  Continue reading The Role of Sinclair Petroleum in Federating Eritrea with Ethiopia
