An Appeal for the Protection of Eritrean Refugees in Libya

October 13, 2021

To:   His Excellency Mr. Filippo Grandi
High Commissioner, UNHCR, Geneva

The Eritrean Political Forces are deeply concerned of the wellbeing and safety of the Eritrean refugees in Libya. As it has been widely reported in the international media, Eritrean, and other African refugees, that include many women and children, have been put in great danger by the recent violence that has been perpetrated on them by the Libyan militias and government authorities. It has been reported that Libyan authorities have been rounding up and indiscriminately arresting the refugees under horrible conditions. It has also been reported that thousands of refugees have been put in detention camps and some refugees have been killed by the Libyan authorities during the roundup.

Ethiopia shuts two Tigray camps housing Eritrean refugees

A file picture of Hitsats refugee camp in Ethiopia's Tigray region [File: Tiksa Negeri/Reuters]

Two refugee camps caught up in a brutal conflict in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region have been closed and their Eritrean residents relocated, authorities have confirmed, as the country’s state-appointed human rights commission reported that both sites had been “destroyed”.

The United Nations’ refugee agency (UNHCR) has called for protection for the residents of the Shimelba and Hitsats camps, which it says were attacked by armed men who killed and abducted refugees. Last week, it said occupants – who often leave to escape mandatory, indefinite military service and repression or search for better opportunities out of one of the world’s most isolated states – had reported that Eritrean soldiers had forced some refugees back into Eritrea.

Eritrean Government Covid-19 Pandemic Excuse Is Starving Afar Eritreans in Dankalia

It is with great dismay to learn that Eritreans living the in Red Sea coast had been deprived access to their land and sea resources for a longtime. Since
independence, they were once again subjected to cruel treatment by the Eritrean government. The situation of the Eritrean Afar people is dire now more than ever. For generations, the Afar population of Eritrea were mainly dependent on fishing for their daily dietary needs. In addition, this sea faring people of the Horn had supplemented their food source by trading with coastal towns in the Eastern flank of the sea. Today they are completely denied their right to use the resource readily available in their doorsteps. Even food aid sent by well-wishing persons from the Gulf was confiscated and the steamers that carried food and medicine barely escaped the wrath of the regime.

The Honorable Dr. Abiy Ahmed
Prime Minister of Ethiopia

Urgent Action required to reverse the decision to shut-down Hinstats refugee camp amidst COVID-19

On behalf of the undersigned Eritrean opposition groups, we are writing this open letter to you to express our grave concerns about the fate of Eritrean refugees and asylum-seekers in Tigray, Ethiopia. For the last two decades, Eritreans have been faced with the impossible choice of remaining under a brutal dictatorship at home or of terrifying and dangerous journey risking their lives in search of protection, freedom, security and protection in and out of the sub-region. During these difficult times, Ethiopia has generously offered shelter and protection to more than 173,000 Eritreans awaiting return upon change or resettlement to third countries. Ethiopia’s generous reception and protection of Eritrean refugees during these turbulent times will be remembered for generations to come.

Can Eritrea’s government survive the coronavirus?

Eritrea’s failure to efficiently respond to the pandemic could bring down its authoritarian government.

The majority of political leaders across the world responded to the continuing coronavirus pandemic, which has already killed more than 190,000 globally, by calling for increased international cooperation and welcoming any financial, medical and humanitarian aid that is offered to them by foreign entities to help protect their constituents. This is why New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo happily accepted China’s proposal to send 1,000 ventilators to his state, and Italy gratefully welcomed hundreds of Cuban doctors who offered their help in the country’s fight against COVID-19.

Tiffany Haddish Praised Eritrea’s Dictator. Then She Doubled Down In DMs With Young Eritrean Americans.

LONDON — Standing side by side in front of rows of cultivated plants, a man and a woman beam at the camera, in a photo that could come straight from a family holiday album. The woman on the left is instantly recognizable to millions of people: the actor, comedian, and author Tiffany Haddish. The man on the right is less familiar, but behind the warm smile and the friendly arm across Haddish’s shoulder is one of the world’s longest-ruling dictators, Eritrea’s Isaias Afwerki. Since coming to power 27 years ago he has been accused of ruling in a ruthless and brutal manner, as Eritrea earned the nickname the North Korea of Africa in the process.

‘If they find us it’s death or kidnap’: the Eritrean footballers on the run

The Eritrean footballers in hiding in Uganda, photographed this week. From left, Hanibal Tekle, Hermon Yohannes, Simon Asmelash and Mewael Yosief.

The moment Mewael Yosief had been waiting for all his life came a few hours after what should have been the pinnacle of his young football career. Two goals and a man-of-the-match display from the tall midfielder in Eritrea’s 5-0 victory over Zanzibar on 29 September 2019, which set up a Cecafa Under-20 Challenge Cup semi-final against the east African heavyweights Kenya, was hailed by a tweet from Yemane Gebremeskel, the country’s minister of information, praising his performance.

How Forced Labor in Eritrea Is Linked to E.U.-Funded Projects

The Italian police used water cannons to disperse Eritrean and Ethiopian migrants from buildings they occupied in Rome in 2017.

BRUSSELS — The European Union spent 20 million euros last year in Eritrea, hoping to help stem an exodus from the repressive African country, which is consistently one of its biggest sources of asylum seekers.

The money, about $22 million, bought equipment and materials to build a road, a seemingly uncontroversial task. The catch? Many workers on the construction site are forced conscripts, and the European Union has no real means of monitoring the project.

Asmara (Eritrea) (AFP) – Eritrean taxi driver Mihreteab recalls brimming with hope in July 2018 when his country reached a peace agreement with neighbour and longtime foe Ethiopia.

But a year and a half later, that hope has given way to disenchantment.

“I don’t see any changes so far. People are still in jail and life is the same,” he said while waiting for passengers on a main avenue in Asmara.

The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded for a baffling reason

Last week, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Many Eritreans — myself included — were flabbergasted. Abiy deserves credit for his reformist agenda in Ethiopia and his marathon diplomacy in the Horn of Africa. But the decision to award him the prize, at least in part, for his peacemaking efforts with Eritrea is puzzling. Despite last year’s euphoria surrounding the peace deal between the two countries, nothing has changed on the ground. Abiy’s goodwill impacted the lives of Eritreans in the first few months after the deal. But the benefits were short lived, and Eritrea’s repressive status quo continues today.

But notably, the prize was not awarded to Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki, Abiy’s partner in the talks.

Tuesday marks the 25th anniversary of the imprisonment of three Jehovah’s Witnesses in Eritrea, where they have been subject to torture and allowed little contact with the world outside the prison walls.

Paulos Eyasu, Isaac Mogos, and Negede Teklemariam were detained on Sept. 17, 1994,apparently because they conscientiously objected to military service, according to a report published in August by the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Office of Public Information. They were held at the Sawa military training camp until 2017, when they were transferred to Mai Serwa prison, where they were briefly granted access to visitors for the first time since their imprisonment. None of the three have been charged or granted a hearing.

Eritrea is the world’s most censored country, according to a new report by a media watchdog which also cites extreme measures taken by authorities in nine other countries, including North Korea, China and Saudi Arabia.

The US-based Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) said on Tuesday that the worst three countries for press censorship – Eritrea, North Korea and Turkmenistan – use the media “as a mouthpiece of the state, and independent journalism is conducted from exile”.

Eritrea Mandate Needed Until Abuses Addressed

Interactive Dialogue with Special Rapporteur on Eritrea

We welcome the Special Rapporteur’s report and her identification of specific benchmarks which, if implemented, could set Eritrea on a path to meaningful human rights reform.

It is therefore all the more disappointing that, despite the Special Rapporteur’s constructive approach, there has been no cooperation from Eritrea, no access, and no change on the ground.

n a letter to the ministry of health, the Church said patients were ordered to go home, and soldiers were deployed to the centres to guard them.

In Ethiopia, Former U.S. Diplomats See Promise in Reform

As the country’s new, young leader spurs dramatic change, serious challenges lie ahead, say former American ambassadors

From left to right: USIP’s Aly Verjee; Amb. David Shinn, Amb. Aurelia Brazil, Amb. Marc Baas, and Amb. Donald Booth at USIP.

In Ethiopia, political prisoners are free and the security services revamped. Women now comprise half the cabinet, and serve as ceremonial head of state, chief justice, and chair of the electoral commission. Significant steps have been taken toward resolving a 20-year conflict with neighboring Eritrea and reforms to unleash the economy—already one of Africa’s fastest growing—are ostensibly on the way. Elections are slated for next year. Under Abiy Ahmed, the nation’s popular new prime minister, Ethiopia is changing in ways long desired by American policymakers, agreed four former U.S. ambassadors to the country. Yet the most the U.S. is likely to do is offer encouragement and a bit of support, they said.

ENCDC Central Committee members during the 2nd National Congress in Stockholm, Sweden, April 21, 2019

Eritrean National Council for Democratic Change (ENCDC) is a coalition of pro-justice Eritrean political parties and civic societies fighting to bring democratic change in Eritrea. First established in 2011 at the 1st Eritrean National Congress in Awasa, Ethiopia; ENCDC conducted its 2nd National Congress in Stockholm, Sweden on April 16-21, 2019; and reaffirmed its commitment to help end the authoritarian regime and usher a democratic change in Eritrea. The ENCDC is governed by a Political Charter and Bylaws and is run by a 61-member Central Committee and 7-member Executive Office.  At the 2nd National Congress, a new Political Charter and Bylaws were adapted, and elections were held to fill the Central Committee and Executive Office positions. ENCDC will work in coalition and coordination with all pro-justice groups and individuals to affect the needed change in Eritrea.
