gritty of the Eritrean burning issues,why don't you request an

U.S. Police Killings Reminiscent Of Lynching, U.N. Group Says
They recommended the United States create a reliable national system to track
killings and excessive use of force by law enforcement officials. Read More
Police killings of black people in the United
States are reminiscent of lynchings and the government must do far more to
protect them, a United Nations working group says in a report that will be
debated at the U.N. Human Rights Council on Monday.
The hard-hitting criticism - drawing a comparison between modern police behavior
and mob killings of blacks in the 19th and 20th centuries - comes at a time of
renewed racial tension in the United States.
This week Charlotte, North Carolina, saw street riots over the shooting of a
black man, Keith Scott, by a black police officer. On Friday, a white police
officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man turned herself into authorities in
COI Oral Update Excluded.
Commission of inquiry oral update not in UN
General Assembly's provisional agenda..
09/30/2016 Reports coming out of the UN hallways in New York
indicated that the expected oral update by the Commission of Inquiry is not
included in the provisional agenda of the UN General Assembly's meeting on
October 27, 2016. Those who have been working hard to hand over our internal
affairs to the organization that caused our suffering for 30 years apparently
are not happy campers.
In their lamentation, they accuse the US and EU for this exclusion of the
Tonqualeet from updating the assembly. Planned demonstration in New York now
become defunct and irrelevant.
Those of us who have rejected the commission are cautiously optimitistic that
this shameful episode will fade into the sunset. This does not mean that human
rights violation does not exist in the land of the brave but it is for us to
challenge and push for change and constitutional governance. We stand
firm: Eritrean problems Eritrean solutions. No Ethiopia. No UN.
Response to TesfaNews's
“How do you like that?”
to EU: Give us $500 million to build two industrial parks that gives employment
rights for 30,000 asylum seekers from Eritrea, South Sudan and Somalia. The rest
of the 70,000 jobs will be reserved to Ethiopians which are also facing their
own unemployment crisis. How do you like that?”TesfaNews
I thank you very much for asking a timely question. I preferred to use your
question as a title in this piece hoping that you will not disagree with me.
Because you asked your readers: whether or not we like the BBC News “Refugee
crisis: Plan to create 100,000 jobs in Ethiopia” posted on 21st September, 2016?
I will not try to separately treat your question from the Eritrean government’s
policy on migration. To be specific, I will treat it from the Eritrean
government’s statement by Mr. Yemane Ghebreab and his delegation during the High
Level Meeting on Large Movement of Migrants and Refugees held on the 19th of
September 2016 in New York. Whether we like it or not, today and yesterday the
aspects of our people’s predicaments are the result of mistaken economic policy.
Eritrea: What Is That ‘No Forced Returns’ of Migrants?
“If not now when should our youth be
By Teweldeberhan Gebre
the ‘no peace, no war’ situation has been set by the inept regime in Ethiopia
and its sponsors in the State Department, Eritrea has faced major exodus of its
youth. Unfortunately, many have perished in the Sahara Desert and the
Mediterranean Sea in a bid to cross into Europe for better life, and many became
victims of human traffickers in the Sinai Peninsula. It is well known that two
factors play for the massive migration of Eritreans: the push and pull factors.
Some of the push factors that force young Eritreans to flee homeland include
economic hardships, indefinite national service, and human rights violations
such as freedom of movements and lack of occupational choices, etc. There
is no misgiving on the push factors that forced Eritreans to leave their
homeland. The Eritrean government tried to curve illegal migration through
tightening its borders but miserably failed. The government did not try other
means to stop or curve the mass and illegal migrations and deserves criticism
for its fixation of tightened border surveillances for such a long time as if
there were and are other means to try within the Eritrean context.
