Eritrea Calls an End to UN Sanction, Ethiopia’s Occupation

End UN Sanction and occupation
Eritrea calls for an end to the 14 years Ethiopian illegal occupation of sovereign Eritrean territories and the unjust sanctions imposed for reasons  that are proven today to be false and nonexistent.

By Sudan Tribune,

Eritrea has demanded an end to what it described as the “illegal” and “unjust” resolution sanctions imposed on the East African nation.

Eritrea made the appeal during the High Level Dialogue on Human Rights held on 12-13 July this year, through its Permanent Representative, ambassador Girma Asmerom.

While addressing the general assembly, the Eritrean diplomat said that his country is being subjected to a “serious and collective punishments” deliberately perpetuated against the Eritrean people. Continue reading Eritrea Calls an End to UN Sanction, Ethiopia’s Occupation

Will Canada’s Hard Line on Eritrea’s ‘Diaspora’ Tax Apply to the U.S.?

If Eritrea’s 2 % diaspora tax is such an egregious example of extra-territorial tax oppression, how does the U.S. escape the same treatment?

“For legal reasons, I would not comment on the reasons for the expulsion but the Ambassador’s actions were “inconsistent” with his diplomatic duties.” – Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird

How nice to see Canada taking a very hard line with the government or Eritrea and its attempts to impose a diaspora tax on Eritrean citizens now living in Canada. This country really does have a backbone when it comes to standing up to oppression and injustice.

There are only two countries in the world that levy income tax based on citizenship rather than residence; one is Eritrea and the other is the United States. But while Canada fulminates and threatens mayhem against Eritrea, it says nothing about the U.S. Continue reading Will Canada’s Hard Line on Eritrea’s ‘Diaspora’ Tax Apply to the U.S.?

Reading between the Lines: Obama’s Unfounded “Slavery” accusation on Eritrea (Opinion)

Imperialism in the open: Unjust bullying and More than half a century of unrelenting attempt to enslave a peaceful and great nation – Eritrea.

By Yacob W.,

A few years ago, I used to have unflinching faith on Obama’s honesty and assumed that he would be a man of truth and integrity. As a result I used to have the wishful expectation that Obama would get to the bottom of Eritrea’s matter so that the repeated cyclic of American bullying on Eritrea would come to an end.

I have heard Obama mention the word ‘Eritrea’ only twice in the last four years. On both occasions he only parroted unfounded fabricated statements of his corrupt officials who are commissioned to cause havoc in Africa.
