Non-Conformist Eritrea

Eritrea is non-conformist and focused on human rights as priority including the right to development.
Eritrea is non-conformist and focused on human rights as priority including the right to development. This article is, therefore, a ground reality perspective which debunks the current perception we have of Eritrea in the West.


Since time immemorial, there have been non-conformists and disruptors – they have made us look at the world through a new lens and progressed our evolution as a species. Captured as the David and Goliath myth. Today’s Goliath is a system where we continue to perpetuate policies which neither respect the planet, its ecosystem or its inhabitants. And a world where the disparity as between the “have” and the “have-nots” is widening and where to pacify the masses we have senseless media, consumption, and consumerism – entirely detrimental – as it is unsustainable to ours and the planet’s well being. In summary, we have “intelligence” and “cleverness” but we remain at times as a species bereft of wisdom and within a debilitating context. Continue reading Non-Conformist Eritrea

Eritrea Urges AU to Press Ethiopia Withdraw From its Sovereign Territories

As one of the guarantors of the Algiers Agreement, the AU is fully mandated to follow-up whether the EEBC’s “Final and Binding” decisions are respected and properly implemented. It is proper and correct for ‘dialogue’ to take place before an arbitration decision. But once the two parties agree to settle their disputes in a “Final and Binding” arbitration mechanism, the parties must implement the decision unequivocally. The call for “dialogue and bilateral talks” by the party that is dissatisfied with the arbitration decision must not be accepted and entertained.

AN ERITREAN delegation called upon the African Union (AU) to urge Ethiopia to abide by its treaty obligations and unconditionally withdraw from sovereign Eritrean territory, including the town of Badme.

Ambassador Araya Desta, Eritrea’s permanent AU representative made the call during the consideration of the report of the Peace and Security Council and the State of Peace and Security in Africa at the 24th summit of the organization in Addis Ababa.

America’s Political Shenanigans in Eritrea

The USA and the groups that are being mobilized to undermine Eritrean national interest, have no moral authority to preach about human right to Eritrea. Are the ongoing efforts to undermine Eritrea by all these elements, really out of the concern for the human right of the Eritrean people and Eritrean national interest?

By Daniel Berhane,

AS ONE of the greatest cities in the world, London is renowned for many things, and has been crowned “the most influential city in the world” and “the ‘best city in the world” among other things. Similarly, London, as global media power and a great center for influential think tanks and research institutes, it comes on top in hosting events addressing Eritrea’s political, diplomatic, and economic issues in the last decade.

Justice for Eritrea – Victim of Illegal Economic Chokehold by a certain emotional political freak from New York

By Haile Abraham,

AS it was witnessed all over the world and on YouTube, Eric Garner, unarmed black man, was attacked in a broad daylight by a group of NYPD cops and was brought down to his death by an illegal chokehold just like a pack of hyenas would bring a big prey down for their dinner feast. The only difference is that, unlike the pack of hyenas in the jungle, the NYPD cops’ attack was motivated by racism and hatred towards another fellow human, even as he pleaded repeatedly, “I can’t breathe.Continue reading Eric Garner and Eritrea – Victims of Illegal Chokehold From New York
