Eritrea

February 27, 2011
 

The U.S. Department of State continues to warn U.S. citizens of the risks of travel to Eritrea and recommends that U.S. citizens defer all travel there. This Travel Warning replaces the Travel Warning dated September 24, 2010, updates information on security incidents, and reminds U.S. citizens of ongoing security concerns in Eritrea. Full Text

The "travel warning" that raised more questions about its timing and its purpose.
"
Deteriorating economic conditions (the lack of availability of household items on the common market; government rations of goods such as flour, sugar, and cooking oil; and rapid price inflation of those few items which may still be found in stores) within Eritrea have led to a noticeable increase in crime, particularly within Asmara."??

Ethiopian Muslims Burning Down Christian Churches

Friday, 04 March 2011 01:41 PM EST Jennifer LeClaire News Featured News

Despite its status as a majority Christian nation, the danger is rising in Ethiopia

Earlier this week, Charisma News reported that a Muslim mob attacked Christian missionaries in the Oma village. And last month Ethiopian Muslims sent a clear message to believers in Besheno: “Convert, leave the city or face death.”

Now, church buildings and evangelists are being targeted for attack. Indeed, thousands of Muslims have razed five churches and the homes of two evangelists in Asendabo, Ethiopia in recent days. International Christian Concern (ICC) reports that Muslim attackers continued to burn down churches even after federal police were brought in.

Saturday, 5th March: DHUSAMAREB (Sh. M. Network) – Military forces from neighboring Ethiopia have reached at and set up temporary bases the districts of Guriel and Dhusamareb in Galgudud region in central Somalia. 

Officials from Somalia’s moderate Ahlu Sunna Waljama’, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed the presence of Ethiopian military in central Somalia tonight. 

The officials said the forces entered the Galgudud region from the district of Balanbal.

It is said the fighters are ready to take on Al shabaab movement in Galgudud region.

Urgent Appeal

The deteriorating situation in Libya has not only caused the killing of thousands of protesting civilians but has also put the lives of transiting refugees in great danger. In the last few years, Libya has become one of the main transiting routes for Africans fleeing their countries in search of safety or better life. Many of these are Eritreans fleeing an open-ended compulsory military service that has been a major cause of great suffering in Eritrea

 Concerned with the impact of the events unfolding in Libya and the alarming reports that some have already been killed while

Popular Uprising: Eve of the End of Era of Domination and Transition to New World Order (P.I)


Part 1 

As of late, the world is witnessing economic and political explosions in various parts of the globe that apparently appear to be new phenomenon but in essence were beneath the surface. Such upsurge of popular uprising in the beginning of 2011, especially in North Africa and the Middle East is becoming the main focus of international media outlets. However, as the reports being disseminated by various international media organs not only mainly concentrate on daily events but their analyses are also in tune with their overt or covert agendas, their coverage does not at all portray complete and accurate picture of the real situation.  

Under such circumstance, it is of vital importance to read the actual state of affairs as regards international

Key factors for national security and stability 

As mentioned in the first part of this article, the current stage in world history is characterized with monopoly and marginalization in different parts of the world in conflict with mounting popular resistance. It is a historic junction in which people all over the world are demanding social justice and coexistence in harmony.  Although popular opposition manifested in various corners has distinctive feature of its own in one way or the other, the overall cause, however, is not that different from one another. Hence, in order to have profound understanding of this basic fact, it is imperative to identify the decisive factors that determine the stability of a given nation and society.

A Sad and Heartbreaking Story

By The International Task Force on Eritrea, London,

February 21, 2011
 

A sad and distressful story has come recently to our

attention. It is the heartbreaking story of a 7-year-old

Eritrean child abducted in 2010 from her mother while fleeing

from Eritrea on the way to the Sudan. The name of the abducted

child is Hiyab Eyob. She was born in Eritrea after her father

was forced to flee the country to start life in exile. He now lives as a political refugee in Vancouver, Canada.
At the moment, Hiyab’s mother remains stranded in the Sudan, but needless to say, both she and the father are emotionally crushed and waiting helplessly for a miracle to happen and be reunited with their beloved child.

 


The United Nations is currently asking the international community to donate food for 2.8 million Ethiopians, and yet the so-called “Ethiopian government” sells fertile land to foreign investors to grow oil seeds and sugarcane for export.

Chandigarh, INDIA (PTI) — A group of Indian farmers in Punjab today said that they are going to grow pulses and oilseeds on 5,000 hectares of land in Ethiopia and import their farm produce to India.

“We will start cultivating 5,000 hectares of land in Ethiopia from September this year and plan to cultivate pulses, oil seeds, sugarcane and maize which are always in short supply (in India),” Confederation of Potato Seed Farmers (POSCON) secretary general Jang Bahadur Singh Sangha said here today.

This article describes the AA Convention that was held from 31st July to 9th August, 2010, in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa. Its express purpose is to discuss and analyse the legitimacy, legality and immediate and long-term consequences and dangers associated with the Addis Ababa Convention (Waela).


Djiboutians rally to oust president

Police use tear gas to disperse thousands demonstrating in East African nation
to demand Ismail Omar Guelleh step down.

Last Modified: 18 Feb 2011 19:13 GMT

Thousands of demonstrators have rallied in the East African nation of Djibouti to demand that president Ismail Omar Guelleh resign, the latest in a series of demonstrations spurred on by political protests across Africa and the Middle East.

Amid a tight police deployment, the demonstrators gathered at a stadium on Friday with the intention of staying there until their demands were met.

But the demonstration escalated into clashes after dusk, as authorities used batons and tear gas against stone-throwing protesters.

Guelleh has served two terms and faces an election in April, but critics are concerned by changes he made to the constitution last year that scrapped a two-term limit.

 

President Omar Al-Beshir conducts working visit in Eritrea

Asmara, 17 February 2011 – The President of Sudan, Field Marshal Omar Hassan Al-Beshir conducted a one-day working visit in Eritrea. President Isaias Afwerki accorded him official welcome on arrival at the Asmara International Airport.

In a meeting at the State Palace, the two leaders held discussion focusing on bilateral relations, enhancing mutual cooperation and regional as well as international issues of mutual interest.  

In briefings they gave to local and international media outlets following the meeting, Presidents Isaias and Omar Al-Beshir pointed out that their discussion was a continuation of the regular consultations
and exchanging of views between the two countries and leaders.

Addis on the Brink?

ETHIOPIA

Meles wants to avoid hunger riots

 

The governing EPRDF party’s unopposed domination of the country’s institutions does not insure Prime Minister Meles Zenawi against the dangerous social tensions that are building up in Ethiopia. Particularly as the price of staples went through the roof in January, coincidentally just at the time when the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt were breaking out. But the situation here is quite different. The supervision of the population by the EPRDF and the Ethiopian Prime Minister’s rapid decision to re-impose State control on the prices of staples went some way to defusing consumer discontent before it spilled out into the streets. But for how much longer? Particularly as social conflicts are also looming in the countryside, in the wake of the massive sales of land to foreign companies whose agricultural production is intended for export at a time when Ethiopia is calling for international aid to help it feed 2.8 million citizens.

Tightening the screws preventively. Decimated and discredited, the old parliamentary opposition can no longer play its role of a barometer of the real state of public opinion. Meles Zenawi is consequently very attentive to the slightest sign of discontent among the urban population. He tries to defuse unease while at the same time preparing "decisive government action ” in case spontaneous protest movements break out in Addis Ababa. Last week the police summoned the troublesome journalist Eskinder Nega to warn him against inciting Ethiopians to follow the Tunisian and Egyptian examples. For their part, the courts confiscated the funds of two local NGO’s - Ethiopian Human Rights Council (EHRC) and Ethiopian Women Lawyers Association (AWLA) - while EPRDF officials toured the capital’s Kebele (neighbourhoods) to warn parents against letting their offspring take part in possible street demonstrations. The reception of opposition radio and television channels based abroad is scrambled with the help of Chinese specialists, and access to Internet web sites critical of the EPRDF is blocked. Meanwhile, the security around the Prime Minister’s residence has been strengthened, just in case!

The President raises his voice. The political cohesion of the Ethiopian executive team is even starting to fray at the edges. A very rare event, President Girma Wolde-Giorgis distanced himself from Meles Zenawi’s land policy. On 20 December 2010, he wrote to the Minister of Agriculture, Tefera Argaw, to ask him to go back on his decision to attribute the Indian company Verdanta Harvest Plc, 3010 hectares in a protected forest zone in the Gambella region, in the western part of the country. This area has already been affected by sale of land to foreign companies. In his letter in the Amharic language, which has been seen by The Indian Ocean Newsletter, he reminded Tefera Argaw of Ethiopia’s international undertakings in the negotiations on climate change. But the presidential role is purely honorific and Tefera Argaw took no notice of this advice. Instead, he continued to propose selling vast areas of Ethiopian land to Indian companies. On the other hand, the local officials of the Mejenger district who drew the President’s attention to this affair were dismissed.

Reinforcements on the Djibouti border. The government in Addis Ababa is not indifferent to Djibouti's concerns over the increasing level of political unrest in its country. Meetings have been held between officials from Djibouti and Ethiopian defence ministries. The former want support from the latter in order to avoid any attacks by FRUD rebels during the election period. The Ethiopian army has already reinforced its manning on the Djibouti border on the Moussa Ali side. In return, it obtained the extradition of Ethiopians who had fled to Djibouti and are considered ONLF (armed opposition) sympathisers. Nevertheless, the diplomatic interests of the two neighbours could well diverge on one point: Eritrea. Meles Zenawi gives the impression of wanting to resume negotiation with the government in Asmara so that it can stop backing Ethiopian OLF and ONLF rebels. Djibouti, on the other hand, wants to strengthen its anti-Eritrea propaganda, claiming that this country arms the FRUD.

Eritrea won its independence militarily against all the odds, thanks to the gallant EPLF fighters and following a referendum, its independence was legally recognised by the International Community against the wishes of its enemies, thanks to the wisdom of the EPLF leadership.

South Boulder Mines recommences drilling at Colluli Potash Project

South Boulder Mines (ASX: STB) has resumed drilling at its fully owned Colluli Potash Project in Eritrea, targeting extensions to high grade potash at the world's shallowest potash deposit.

Previously announced hole Col-004 intersected a total thickness of 21.46m of potash including the high grade interval of 3.44m of sylvinitite @ 44% KCl from 28.68m.

The initial exploration target is to define 300-500mt of potash ores with average grades from 21 – 25% KCl at less than 100m depth.

Lorry Hughes of South Boulder Mines says his focus is firmly on producing potash in Eritrea
