Estás invitado a "Eritrea y la actual crisis de refugiados"

Along with The Eritrean Movement for Democracy and Human Rights, EEPA, Förderverein Pro Asyl e.V., Connection e.V., and the Eritrean Law Society, and in cooperation with the Representation of the State of Hessen to the European Union, War Resisters’ International, is co-organising the event below.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Calling for the renewal of the mandate of the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Eritrea

Published today: we're calling for the renewal of the mandate of the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Eritrea.

We're glad to be amongst those working to keep the focus on the human rights situation in #Eritrea, where conscription is indefinite and militarisation "excessive" (according to Special Rapporteur Sheila B. Keetharuth).

The letter was initiated by Civicus.

SUBMISSION TO THE HUMAN RIGHTS COMMITTEE: 119th SESSION

for the attention of the Country Report Task Force on ERITREA

Military service, conscientious objection and related issues.

Prepared December 2016

Basic Information

HISTORY: Eritrea gained independence from Ethiopia in 1993, after a thirty-year armed liberation struggle, and that year became the 184th member state of the United Nations.1 Following independence, the Eritrean People's Liberation Front transformed itself into the “Popular Front for Democracy and Justice”, and under that title has imposed military rule ever since. Between 1998 and 2000 a war with Ethiopia over a disputed border caused massive casualties: since then there have been simmering border tensions but no full-scale military conflict. Nevertheless, the level of militarisation in the country has if anything increased.

War profiteer of the month: Nevsun Resources

The United Nations has released a damning report into the operations of Canadian mining company Nevsun Resources in Eritrea, which accuses the company of using conscripted labour at it's Bisha Mine in the country. Nevsun estimated that the mine held over a billion pounds of copper and 2.7 billion pounds of zinc.

Extraña es la historia eritrea; más lo es la historia de la mujer eritrea.

A menudo (demasiado), pienso acerca de lo que otras personas piensan de nuestras historias, nuestras historias eritreas. No las dramáticas, sino las corrientes, las experiencias conocidas por todos los eritreos. Estoy segura de que nuestras historias, llenas de un dolor inimaginable, infligidas por esas mismas personas que afirman habernos liberado, dan la impresión de ser demasiado extrañas como para pertenecer a la vida cotidiana.

Como estas historias…
