Is Eritrea Really a Repressive State or an African Nation Fighting a Propaganda War?

Following a UN inquiry report on Human Rights in Eritrea, a world-wide, anti-Eritrea demonization campaign unleashed almost in highly organised fashion by western mainstream media. However, a closer and more critical analysis on the report reveals the lack of integrity, credibility and impartiality of the UN Commission in the process of compiling the damning report. Given the growing doubts on the Commission’s methodology and the media blitz that followed, Africa Today goes beyond the headlines and ask if Eritrea really is a brutal regime or an African nation fighting a propaganda war.

By Africa Today,

WITH headlines describing Eritrea as brutal regime that the world keeps ignoring, the western media is responding to a UN inquiry that concludes the Eritrean government may be subjecting its citizens to “crimes against humanity”. This contradicts British Guidance that considers Eritrea safe for migrants to return to after leaving illegally.

The Eritrean government has described the report as slander, written by people that haven’t been to Eritrea in recent times. This week Africa Today goes behind the headlines, asking if Eritrea really is a brutal regime or an African nation fighting a propaganda war.

What’s life like in Eritrea and why are the voices of those who support the country not being heard?
