Dan Connell’s Obsession With Eritrea or Is He on a Mission?

why Dan Connell should care more to Eritreans than his own American people?
The White Man’s Burden. One may ask why Dan Connell should care more to his own people than the Eritreans. Is that out of an obsession or he is somehow on his longstanding, unfinished mission against Eritrea?

By Ben Yonatan,

Since the arrest of members of G-15, Dan has been very critic about the government of Eritrea, only because a few members the G-15 were his informants and/or partners in spying on Eritrea, from day one he stepped his feet in Eritrean soil . Here again, Dan miscuing the facts and writes factitious story about Eritrea from Djibouti tilted “The road ends in Djibouti for some Eritreans.”

Mr. Connell flew thousands of miles to Africa and to write a speculative rubbish narrative that he stated he has been told by desperate refugees that are seeking comfortable shelters in the West, whereas in his very own backyard, there are millions of his own citizens incarcerated, bitten, wrongfully charged and etc. and he is yet to say or write a single article about those.

Dan Connell and Martin Plaut Embarrassed at SOAS London Seminar on Eritrea

Axis of Evil. Opportunist Dan Connell and Pseudo Journalist Martin Plaut make a fool out of themselves on Monday at a seminar they arranged at the School of Oriental and African Studies College hall

By Alula Abraha,

The first of a four part series of seminars on “Eritrea” has just concluded. It was rather a seminar on mythical and imagined Eritrea. It was more of an Eritrea-bashing performance played by Dan Connell as a lead actor and the notorious Martin Plaut as a supporting actor. There were also a couple of stuntmen positioned across the room and were meant to gloss the old tired/expired propaganda circus. The whole exercise was desperate, futile and self-defeating that ended up banging itself against the wall. Continue reading Dan Connell and Martin Plaut Embarrassed at SOAS London Seminar on Eritrea

No More Lies! Not in our Back Yard!

“We don’t know enough about ourselves and continue to be enslaved by a narrative about ourselves told by other people” – Thabo Mbeki

By Eritrean,

Dan Connell was confronted head-on by Eritreans in Toronto during his presentation titled “Trafficking and Torture in the Sinai – Rights Denial and the Eritrean Exodus”. The program was facilitated by Ryerson University and sponsored by PEN Canada.

Dan walked in escorted by none other than the degenerate Aaron Berhane and hence set the tone of what would be expected out of the night. Having heard of what was to take place, Eritreans in the city showed up in large numbers dwarfing the number of non-Eritreans in the room.  Continue reading No More Lies! Not in our Back Yard!

Eritrean “Opposition” Turn to Violence Seeking Attention

EYSC thug member arrested by D.C. police for attempting to vandalize the Eritrean Embassy (29 September 2013)

By Semere A.,

When people mention Eritrean opposition groups, for most Eritreans and neutral observers, the Ethiopian regime quickly comes to mind. Yet, even with the support of TPLF, Eritrean opposition groups remain highly fragmented along regional, ethnic, religious, and ideological parameters. Because of their numerous divisions and alarming ties with Addis Ababa, they have failed to gain any real support from Eritreans.

Despite their differences, one area the opposition has thrived in is the internet. The Digital Age has provided them an opportunity to stay visible, even as their followers in the real world continue to dwindle. One group that has seized this opportunity is the Eritrean Youth Solidarity for Change (EYSC).  Continue reading Eritrean “Opposition” Turn to Violence Seeking Attention
