quality hotel trade markQuality Hotel Friends has a responsibility to respect the UN Guiding Principles on Buniness and Human Rights outlined in 2011. Hosting a conference organized by this criminal organization  is either the hotel is in favour of the crimes activity or does not care about crimes against human rights. Either way, Quality Hotel Friends deserves shaming and defamation for failing to conduct due diligence before it accepted the business deal.

Thank you for understanding my message.

Church and Politics: The case of Eritrean Orthodox Church in Israel

church and politicsThis is not in a war zone but inside a church as part of building awareness to its followers. Unfortunately, the event is designed by pro-pfdj(Eritrean dictatorial regime) in order to create hate towards Islamic religion.

When a church arranges programs like this, it is not a secret to know what the church is teaching towards other religions. And this is what the Eritrean regime is trying to introduce among Eritreans.

Some news about the heavy cyber campaign which is designed to silence Eritrean dissidents and to isolate Qatar is revealed by Gedab News from awate.

My Analysis in Tigrigna is provided below

Discourse (ብትግርኛ): Nationalism is not for peace and development but for WAR(In Tigrigna)

This is a discourse about nationalism and its negative effect in Eritrea. As a liberal democrat, my argument is, “nationalism is not for peace and development but for WAR”.  And, what Eritrea experienced since its creation is nothing but a strong justification for the negative impact nationalism has brought in Eritrea.

Not only the armed struggle, but also now against the dictatorial regime, Eritreans are using nationalism as an inspiration to fight for their freedom. However, the the freedom envisioned is not coming to reality. It is time to pause and rethink the ideology we are following in order to achieve our goals.

Eritreans are facing gross violation of human rights that amounted to crimes against humanity. And to fight against this, nationalism is not a solution. A political ideology that values human rights is an ideal one to be embraced. As a liberal democrat, I am using the ideology of liberal democracy to fight for my freedom and freedom of Eritreans.

መስዋእቲ ኣቦና ሓጅ ሙሳን መልእኽቱን

This is all about the Martyrdom of Hajj Mussa, a man who passed away in a brutal prison of PFDJ regime. Hajj Mussa is a hero, a hero of freedom and human rights. He defended the rights of private school which he chaired the School Committee as an elder.

His firm stand for justice and freedom is well recorded in Eritrean history books since the start of the armed struggle, He is a brother to Taha Mohammed Nur, the co-founder of Eritrean Liberation Front in 1961.

Hajji Mussa stood for the freeedom and rights of Eritreans since his early age. He participated by all means to the cause of Eritrea by risking his life. During the Ethiopian rule he was imprisoned several times.

After independence, he served his own community and Eritrea as an elder. He stood strong in his principles. In all public meetings and with government officials, he did not hide his strong voice. He stood for truth and freedom. And what he voiced was all for this dignity.

My take is to remind all Eritreanswhat message we have received from our late father Hajji Mussa. His message is strong and we need to be stronger to continue his message to become reality. Freedom comes at all costs. And NO RIGHTS is given but fought for to earn it.
