Eritrea’s existence as a sovereign nation, and a full member of the United Nations, is a product of the hard-working, independent, resilient, and self-reliant people that overcame all odds and came out victorious.
REPORTERS Without Borders is happy to learn of the release on bail of six Eritrean journalists who had been held since February 2009.
They are Bereket Misghina, Yirgalem Fisseha Mebrahtu and Basilios Zemo of Radio Bana, Meles Negusse Kiflu, who worked for Radio Bana and Radio Zara, Girmay Abraham of Radio Dimtsi Hafash and Petros Teferi.

At this point, we don’t have additional information about the circumstances of their release or their state of health. We will obviously follow the situation closely.” Continue reading Eritrea Released Six More Journalists→
AS I was driving home from shopping one afternoon I decided to turn the radio on to keep abreast on the latest news. It was one of those radio talk shows that broadcast news hourly and present sociopolitical commentaries in between 7/24/365. The topic of the discussion was….you guessed it right, Sony’s controversial movie “The Interview” and North Korea.
The content of the movie, which had to be cancelled in many theaters across the US due to imminent threat of retaliation, was supposedly about assassination plot against North Korea’s leader who was portrayed in demeaning ways.
