“Belonging is a fundamental human need that relates to feelings of being valued, accepted, respected and cared about by others.” (Australian Early Childhood Mental Health Initiative:...
I am amazed, as many others, with the uneducated musings of some Eritreans on the comment section of www. awate.com, under the article USE: The United States of Eritrea, written by Ahmedin Osman and posted on November 28, 2016. The first most close-minded and unenlightened remark says, “Arabic has no root in Eritrea.” The second reads, “Muslims prefer their religion to national identity...” Is it enough to tell these folks: “Please do Eritrea a favour, and keep your mouths shut because Eritrea has enough problems to worry about?” Read more
“If I were a dictator, religion and state would be separate. I swear by my religion. I will die for it. But it is my personal affair. The state has nothing to do with it. The state would look after your secular welfare, health, communications, foreign relations, currency and so on, but not your or my religion. That is everybody's personal concern!” (Mahatma Gandhi, October 2, 1869-January 30, 1948) Read more

Testimonies of victim-families and acquaintances were given on these days. The testimonies of victims and acquaintances are extremely difficult and unbearable to hear; they have been extremely traumatised by the crimes committed on their loved ones. They have no clue on the the whereabouts of their disappeared loved ones. Due to the enormity of the detailed reports, it is very difficult to present it all here; please visit the Facebook page to hear all the testimonies. Read more Read more
Access to the sea is currently a topic of discussion among Eritreans and Ethiopians in the mass media primarily due to continuous assertions of access to the Red Sea by Ethiopian individuals and groups, including Tigrayans. Ethiopian assertions of access to the sea can be placed into two categories: (1) ownership of the Red Sea, the Eritrean port of Asseb in particular; and (2) the right of access to the sea and freedom of transit.

Kazakhstan’s Tokayev said no to a request to send a symbolic force to help Russia in Ukraine, but Eritrea’s Isaias Afeworki would happily do it if he were asked. No joke. Eritreans would not be surprised if he did. It has been quite easy for him to send to their death young Eritrean recruits to several regional conflicts in our region - to Congo, South Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, and repeatedly to Ethiopia, including to the ongoing war in Tigray that he masterminded. Eritrea’s petty dictator, with very little care for Eritrean lives, would send some from his nowadays ragtag army of forced conscripts. Read more
Eritrean Political Forces (EPF) are extremely saddened by the irresponsible act of the Eritrean regime in its unequivocal support of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. On March 2nd the Eritrean regime voted against the U.N. General Assembly resolution to condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The UN resolution passed overwhelmingly with the support of 141 nations with 35 abstentions. Eritrea, North Korea, Syria, Belarus and Russia were the only five countries opposing the resolution.
