There has never been heard in the revolutions of people that
people who fled from the persecution of dictatorship rally
dictatorship in their home lands while they live in democratic
countries. Eritreans are exception to this theory. In recent
years various dictatorships of both internal and external origin
have collapsed when confronted by defiant, mobilised people
but in Eritrea we see people more mobilised by the dictator
and support the dictator instead of joining their oppressed
people at home.
dictator in Eritrea is today in conflict with the Eritrean
people at home and the international community in the world
because of its wrong policies that have been the causes of
destabilisation and conflict creating. The dictator’s
criminal activities has gone beyond the country and become
a threat to international security and peace. The international
community have been warning and requesting the dictator in
Eritrea to cooperation but it has rejected all calls and instead
attacked all the regional and international organizations like
IGAD, AU, EU and at last UN. If a member nation of the UN is
a threat to the international security and peace then it is
the UNSC ( United Nations Scurity council) responsibility to
take steps against this member country.
The sanction resolution 1907 imposed by the
UNSC has not come simply to damage the Eritrean people but
directed to the dictator to change its behaviour of non-cooperation.
The resolution of sanction is based on facts and previous resolutions
and statements concerning the situation in Somalia and the
border dispute with Djibouti given to this regime to abide
by the UN Charter for peace security in the world. But all
these resolutions were defied by the ruling party in Eritrea.
The dictator in Eritrea will now use the diaspora Eritreans
against the UNSC resolution by planning a strategy and its
implementations. One of this is the rallies that will be held
on 22nd of February in Switzerland, Washington and Canada and
many other minor cities. Can such rallies and campaigns save
the dictator from the sanctions imposed to it? Can such rallies
and campaigns lift the sanction?
seminars and conferences led by cadres, like Gidewon Abay,
Sophia Tesfamariam and others help to lift the UNSC’s
main objective of all these rallies and campaigns is to save
the dictatorship and elongate the Eritrean people’s
suffering under the brutalities of one man rule.
The issue of being a threat to the international peace security
is more serious than the violence of human rights in a country
that is a member of the UN. The regime in Eritrea has being
a threat to the peace and security of the region in the Horn
of Africa and gradually against the world by its link with
its international terrorism. It is now in stage where no demonstrations
and rallies can help.
22nd should not be a rally to save the dictator from sanctions
but a day for the victory of the Eritrean people
who have been sanctioned for so many years’ under dictatorship
and it is an equivalent to the 24th May of 1991 when Eritrea
was liberated by our gallant freedom fighters, symbolizing
independence, liberty, freedom and justice.
day should be instead a day of civil disobedience saying
no demonstrations for the dictator’s
survival but stand in solidarity with our people at home suffering
under dictatorial grip.
who are deceived by the dictator’s misguiding directives
and planning to attend the rallies in Switzerland, Washington
and Canada must realize that your rallies are of no use to
lift the sanctions aimed to the regime that has been a threat
to the world peace and security.
Your participation in these rallies will one
day be a case of legal issue that your citizenship of your
or the permit of residence shall be put in question to be withdrawn
according your support or link with a system that has link
with international terrorism. The writer of this article would
like to give you the brotherly advice not to participate in
such rallies but stand on the side of your people for peace,
freedom and justice.
