By Eritrean Global Action for Justice,

Eritreans and friends of Eritrea in Europe and the rest of the globe will hold a mass rally in Geneva, Switzerland on Tuesday, June 21, 2016, to protest against the latest sickening report of the Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in Eritrea, a three-man panel that has never set foot in the country and has little direct knowledge of its people and culture.

Eritrea, ‘Oasis of Peace’

Thousand of Eritreans protested in Geneva against the UN report that presents their home country as a loophole of oppression, They demanded the withdrawal of sanctions against their country.

Mainstream Media Ignores Europe-wide Eritrean Demonstration

The Western Mainstream Media’s contempt and racist attitude towards the people of Eritrea and their leadership has never been exposed before as much as it does on June 22 when a huge 10,000 strong #HandsOffEritrea Europe-wide Eritrean demonstration flooded Geneva. The reaction from the mainstream media was a deafening silence, as if they were not participated in the international charade following the COI report. This is a classic example of msm bias against Eritrea and that is exactly why it has long lost its luster among Eritreans. The solution for such racist practice rests on use alternative progressive media, citizen journalism and a swift rebuttal from active and media savvy Eritreans.

The headlines bemoan the lack of action by policy makers-who seem to be having a hard time reconciling facts presented by the opposing sides of the arguments on Eritrea’s reality.
