EU Parliament Resolution On Eritrea: Misinformation or Political Bias?

EU Parliament Resolution On Eritrea: Misinformation or Political Bias?

The European Parliament’s resolution on Eritrea (2016/25999(RSP)) is appalling for its gratuitous, and grossly distorted, depiction of facts and events in the country. It is indeed a sad sign of our times that an august body with that stature can so casually ignore minimum standards and norms of objectivity and civility to freely insult a small foreign people and country.

The operating paragraphs in the preamble to the EU Parliament resolution represent a catalogue of all the invective peddled against Eritrea by “regime-change” elements and other detractors who have long harboured malice against the independence and sovereignty of the country.

This is amply illustrated by the following few examples: Read more

Press Statement: Eritrea, shared its experience in combating gender based violence

The National Union of Eritrean Women and the Permanent Mission of Eritrea to the United Nations in partnership with the United Nations Country Team in Eritrea organized a side-event under the theme: “From Grassroots to National Action in Combating Gender Based Violence in Eritrea” on 22 March 2016 in New York. The side-event was held in the margins of the 60th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women aimed at sharing Eritrea’s experience, challenges and achievements in combating all forms of violence against women and girls.

Ambassador Girma Asmerom, Permanent Representative of Eritrea to the United Nations, in his opening remarks, stated that the exemplary contribution of Eritrean women in the struggle for independence and nation-building is a matter of historical fact that is documented by different researchers and partners. He also noted that some quarters with sinister motives against Eritrea deliberately fabricate baseless allegations such as “systematic rape is taking place in Eritrea”. Read more

Contre les viols par l’armée djiboutienne et l’impunité
Grève de la faim de 10 femmes Djiboutiennes

Contre les viols par l’armée djiboutienne et l'impunité Grève de la faim de 10 femmes DjiboutiennesDix femmes de Djibouti, résidant en France et en Belgique entament une grève de la faim le 25 mars 2016, pour dénoncer les viols des Femmes Afar par des soldats djiboutiens qui continuent dans l’impunité totale depuis septembre 1993, dans le Nord et le Suddu pays.

Elles entendent protester contre ces violences et briser le mur de silence érigé autour des viols. Ces crimes se déroulent à quelques encablures des bases militaires française, américaine, nipponne et chinoise. A Djibouti comme dans d’autres régions d’Afrique et du monde, le viol est utilisé comme une arme de guerre, visant à détruire l’identité des communautés. L’impunité érigée en système en République de Djibouti rend impossible toute reconstruction pour ces femmes. Depuis le début de la guerre civile en 1991, des centaines de femmes Afars ont été violées par l’armée gouvernementale à Djibouti. Ces femmes gardent pour beaucoup d’entre elles des séquelles physiques. Elles sont toutes marquées à vie dans leurcorps, leur dignité, leur conscience. Malgré la répression et la honte qu’elles éprouvent, certaines victimes ont eu le courage de porter plainte. Aucune plainte n’a pu aboutir jusqu’à ce jour. L’actuel Chef de l’Etat, Ismael Omar Guelleh, qui s’apprête à briguer un 4ème mandat, commanditaire des pires… PDF
