Hostile Media and Imaginary Coup in Eritrea

Nothing embolden the Anti-Eritrea camps so much as our loud and clear silence

By Press TV,

In the background of this corporate mainstream media enjoyed reporting on a coup d’etat in Eritrea reporting that dissident soldiers had taken over.

First published out of Qatari-owned Al-Jazeera the story swept the globe to the total amazement of Eritrea as the coup never actually took place.

The fabricated story highlights incompetence within the Al-Jazeera network and also the distinct lack of independent checks carried out by Western mainstream media groups that include the BBC. Continue reading Hostile Media and Imaginary Coup in Eritrea

Dan Connell Tries to Legitimize Terrorism in Eritrea

For Dan, It’s a personal mission to amass profits by selling books, received payments for lectures, publications and appearances as ‘Expert’ in the name of Eritrea and Eritreans.

By Amanuel Biedemariam,

Terrorists killed US Ambassador to Libya. A suicide bomber attacked the US embassy in Istanbul. Americans on a daily basis are exposed to news about violence in public institutions. However, regardless of how worthy, legitimate a cause may appear to be, Americans will not condone, tolerate or accept any individual, group or organization when force or, the threat of force is used to impose an agenda or further a cause.

Not a single American will tolerate, let alone try to spin it in any way shape, if, for example, a group of Americans storm into the headquarters of the Voice of America with tanks and demand their grievances heard live on the air at gunpoint.
Furthermore, if a single individual comes out in support of such an act, try to justify it somehow; it is unacceptable offense. Continue reading Dan Connell Tries to Legitimize Terrorism in Eritrea

Government provide necessary info at the appropriate time

By Shabit,

“Attempted Coup d’etat” and Ambassador Girma Asmerom’s Reflection

Eritrea is a peaceful country and “attempted coup” is only a wishful thinking

By Eritrean Mission to AU,

Starting 21 January 2013, there has been a concerted and coordinated disinformation campaign by the media about the situation in Eritrea and the so-called “attempted military coup d’etat“.

There has never been an “attempted military coup” and there will never be a coup d’tate in Eritrea. It is the wishful thinking of some quarters. I say this with impunity.

You might say why not? It is a legitimate question.  Continue reading “Attempted Coup d’etat” and Ambassador Girma Asmerom’s Reflection

Hooligans Attack Eritrean Embassy in London

The self proclaimed Ethiopian turned Eritrean Human Right ‘Activist’ – Selam Kidane – was one of the leading faceless & nameless hooligans

By Eritrea Embassy Media,

Yesterday, 24th of January, in the early morning hours, a 16-man mob, led by ring leaders, Amanuel Eyasu, Selam Kidane and Bereket Kahsay, stormed into the Eritrean Embassy.

Like every society, Eritrean society is not immune from hooligans organised by known AntiEritrean elements doing such a blatant criminal deeds. Most of these 16 member mob looks more confused with little or no Eritrean value whatsoever. Some are jobless while others are criminals known in London itself. Two of them are already confirmed to be of Tigrayan origin.

Unlike other embassies with high-tech securities, Eritrean Embassy has always been known to be relatively open to the public and these traitors exploited this opportunity to push their way through the door to deliberately enter Continue reading Hooligans Attack Eritrean Embassy in London
