Horn of Africa: Poor News Analyses Undermines Potential for Understanding

Horn of Africa: Poor News Analyses Undermines Potential for Understanding

The Tigray People’s Liberation Front’s (TPLF) launch of a massive attack on the Ethiopian Northern Command in early November last year has entailed considerable humanitarian ramifications, even if the worst case scenario has been avoided through swift and effective countermeasures that have thwarted its sinister designs. Prevailing challenges must indeed be gauged against the intractable quagmire that would have enveloped[Read More…]

Horn of Africa: A blamegame

Horn of Africa: A blamegame

Once again we see US and Europe on the basis of false information and misleading campaigns have a destructive influence and lacks understanding of the peace process in The Horn of Africa. For 80 years, the UN and the international community disregarded Eritrea’s rights. The peace agreement in 2018 between Ethiopia and Eritrea was a welcome development in a region,[Read More…]

The Global Anti-Eritrea-Ethiopia Agenda

The Global Anti-Eritrea-Ethiopia Agenda

It is not up to the US to demand or dictate that Eritrea withdraw from Ethiopia — it is Ethiopia’s and only Ethiopia’s call to make.   “The people of Eritrea and Ethiopia are challenging the US and EU’s fabrications, exaggeration and agendas with facts.” On February 22, 2021, the EU’s Council of Ministers held a conference in Brussels and addressed[Read More…]

Have Eritrea’s Afars Lost Their Sailing Heritage?

Have Eritrea’s Afars Lost Their Sailing Heritage?

It seems that Eritrea’s Afar people have lost their sailing heritage, falling victim to the internal combustion engine and fossil fuels. Living along the southern Red Sea coast of Africa, the Afars were made famous by the finding of the earliest human remains in the Afar Desert (once the Sea of Afar, and a Sea again one day due to[Read More…]

Understanding Eritrea

The Horn of Africa has been plagued by conflicts and war for decades, and finally it seems that peace has come to the region. Political changes in Ethiopia have opened for a rapid peace agreement with Eritrea signed on 8 July 2018 by president Isaias Afwerki of Eritrea and prime minister Ahmed Abiy of Ethiopia.

President Issias Aferwerki Vs. Al Jazeera; February 2010

This transcript is from an interview done by Eritrean President Issias Aferwerki and Al Jazeera “journalist” Jane Dutton in February 2010, shortly after the UNSC passed punitive sanctions against Eritrea based on what has now been proven to be fabrications.

Saying Goodbye to UN Sanctions Against Eritrea

Saying Goodbye to UN Sanctions Against Eritrea

It isn’t often the UN Security Council votes unanimously to remove sanctions against a country, but this past Wednesday, November 14 they did just that by saying goodbye to nine years of UNjust punishment against the small, socialist, east African country of Eritrea. It was Christmas Eve, 2009 when the USA forced through UN Security Council sanctions against Eritrea, with[Read More…]

Thaw in the Horn of Africa: The anti-colonial struggle of Eritrea and the liberation of Ethiopia

  With the nearly unbelievable sudden rapprochement between the presidents Abiy and Afwerki, hopes and dreams seems to have come through. Hopes and dreams for peace and cooperation between the two neighbour nations and ending the total blockade of communication after 20 years of walking in the desert. Telephone lines and transport lines are opened, so people can meet their[Read More…]

Continued Unjust Sanctions Against Eritrea In 2017

Continued Unjust Sanctions Against Eritrea In 2017

Western Imperialism continues to use UN to demonize Eritrea with no substantial and valid arguments. With sanctions in the Security Council(UNSC) the masters of the universe and their fellow-travellers hope to cripple this proud and independent nation. But in vain. On the 14 Nov 2017 the UNSC again voted to continue the sanction regime. 11 affirmative and 4 abstained( Bolivia,[Read More…]

Fortress Europe; The Rise Of Fascism And Racism In The Netherlands

Fortress Europe; The Rise Of Fascism And Racism In The Netherlands

A few days ago I returned from Veldhoven, The Netherlands, where last April 13 in a breathtakingly fascist act of racism the Mayor of this small Dutch town deported over 600 Eritrean youth attending a conference, kicked out of their hotel and forced to leave the city in the middle of the night. I am not talking about Eritrean youth[Read More…]

Winning The Malaria War Without Vaccines

Winning The Malaria War Without Vaccines

For over 10 years now Eritrea, a small country in East Africa, has been winning the Malaria War without vaccines, though much work remains to be done. Since 2005 I have been monitoring the reduction in Malaria mortality here in Eritrea and have seen a consistant reduction of between 70-80%, something almost unknown in Africa and the rest of the[Read More…]

Controlling Africa With Western “Democracy”

Controlling Africa With Western “Democracy”

The west uses “democracy”, as in elections, to control Africa. This has resulted in over half a century of murder and mayhem because all but one African country is a mixture of different ethnicity’s and nationalities with tribalism dominant in African societies. Elections mean tribal winners and tribal losers and no in between, or consensus based governance. This has been[Read More…]
