Remembering the forgotten Eritrean nationalists of the 1950s

31 Aug 2018

To mark the 60th anniversary of the foundation of the Eritrean Liberation Movement (ELM or Harakat), itsmembers should be remembered by the Eritrean people and future generations. On this occasion, the victims of the 1958 general strike should be remembered also by the Eritrean people. The strike  was organised by the members of Eritrean Workers' Association.  Sadly, the strike was brutally crushed by the security force on the 10th March 1958.

ASMARA 1890 - 1938

07 Dec 2018

From 4 villages to a UNESCO World Heritage Site This is the first part of pictorial books about Asmara, the capital of Eritrea, covering the period 1890 -1938. On the 8th of July, 2017, Asmara was included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. UNESCO, described Asmara as a Modernist City of Africa and added, “Located at over 2,000 m above sea level, the capital of Eritrea developed from the 1890s onwards as a military outpost for the Italian colonial power. After 1935, Asmara underwent a large scale programme of construction applying the Italian rationalist idiom of the time to governmental edifices, residential and commercial buildings, churches, mosques, synagogues, cinemas, hotels, etc.” This pictorial book takes you through that journey on how Asmara developed from four villages to a modernist city, with explanatory captions in Italian, English Arabic and Tigrinya.

TRAITOR ISIAS VOWS TO DIE FOR ETHIOIPA REDEFYINING HIS ALLEGIANCE TO ERITREA: WHAT WOULD OUR SILENCE MEAN EXCPET TACIT CONSENT?

20 Nov 2018

Image result for isayas afeworki

The treacherous path of Atse Isias in Ethio-Eritrean relations entered a new phase with his visit to Gondar this month. It is not the visit itself that is an enormous development but the statements that negate his allegiance to the Eritrean state. No Eritrean would act surprised when it comes to the recent statements, though as shocking as they may be, after observing the significant events following the resumption of relations with Ethiopia. We know the nature of the beast and what he is up to or what is in horizon for Eritrea, in case he is able to achieve his evil agenda (God forbid). However, for the advantage of the readers who did not monitor his visit to Gondar closely, it is important to go quickly through the statements before we show our take on them.

On August 18, 2018, UAE attacked an Afar fishing boat, gravely wounding the boat's captain. The Eritrean government has been condemned by United Nations agencies for persecuting the Afar so severely as to commit to crimes against humanity. United Nations agencies documented Eritrea’s crimes against humanity every year since 2013, describing in vivid detail Eritrea’s systematic murders, rapes, tortures, land expropriations and communal displacement.

 “የጅብችኩልቀንድይነክሳልl” (An Amharic proverb) As Eritreans who craved peace for a long time, we jumped with joy when Atse Isias unexpectedly surprised us by taking a friendly overture at Ethiopia, which he used to consider an enemy, accepting the peace initiative of the Ethiopian Prime Minister, Dr. Abiy Ahmed. That was the emotional side, but we have serious suspicion that he did that for the wrong reason.

TRAITOR ISIAS AS PAWN OF ETHIOPIAN EXPANSIONIST ASPIRATIONS AND GULF HEGEMONY: AN EFFECTIVE CATALYST FOR THE WEAKENING OF HERD MENTALITY

08 Oct 2018

The term “herd mentality” is among the widely-used political vocabulary nowadays. It is for that reason that it is used in the formulation of the title of this piece. Nonetheless, as the term could mean different things for different people, it is essential to define the concept as used in this piece, showing what it stands for and why it is significant as a category. This will hopefully protect this piece from vagueness, ambiguity, and the causing of unwanted confusion.

ENCDC ASSEMBLING ITS BRANCH OFFICES, AND SOON TO HOLD ITS SECOND NATIONAL CONGRESS

15 Jul 2018

As Prime Minister Abiye Ahmed returns from the historic visit to Eritrea, a long letter from ENCDC containing appreciations, views, and requests, awaited him at home. We wished him good luck when he left, and we wish him well now with his peace, love and democracy vision for the entire continent. We believe Dr. Abiye had learned a lot from the Eritrean people, and the government that doesn’t represent them. Issayas Afewerki seemed to enjoy the new topics of love, forgiveness, unity, openness (Perestroika), the issue of bilateral cooperation, and completely abandoned the Algiers Agreement of border demarcation which he used to freeze negotiations for the pasts 16 years. Issayas is now coming to Addis Ababa to join the new venture of “Unity” “Medemer” for the purpose of his own old dream, and not embracing the general concept of harmony addressed by PM Abiye. Eritreans are now left with countless tasks to achieve our own national unity- “Hagerawi Hadnet, Whda’t Al Wetenya” and join Abiye in the regional peace cooperation of all nations concerned. ENCDC and the opposition are entering a new stage of reality which should be carefully assessed and immediacy tackled by restructuring offices and calling for an immediate convention of its 2nd National congress
