US/EU: Weaponizing “Human Rights”

US/EU: Weaponizing “Human Rights”

By: Abraham Tesfay

In the past few months, major western powers have invoked different facets of human rights and international laws of war in the conflict in the Tigray region of Ethiopia to cast the crisis in almost apocalyptic terms. And for maximum outreach and impact, the chorus continues to be amplified by pliant media outlets and affiliated international agencies.

The packaging remains subtle and well calibrated.  At times, and especially these days, the specter of “Rwanda” is harped on to ominously insinuate “potential or imminent ethnic cleansing” in the making. The famine that stalked Ethiopia in the 1970s is rehashed for good measure now and then.  And, at other times, the analogy shifts to Yugoslavia to convey impending “break-up and State failure in Ethiopia with dire consequences to peace and stability in the Horn of Africa region”.

Bahti Meskerem: More than Just Another Day

Bahti Meskerem: More than Just Another Day

By Dr. Fikrejesus Amahazion

It is nearly the end of August. The beginning of September will soon be upon us. In Eritrea, that generally means several things. That the rainy and wet keremti (summer) season is almost at its end, ready to give way to the quewi (harvesting) season. That a vast swathe of the countryside and mountains will soon be covered in sheets of green and dotted by colour­ful embaba (flowers). That juicy and delicious beles fruit can be found on every street corner. That Yohannes and Meskel, those special festive oc­casions, are around the corner. Read more

Halhale Dairy Farm

Halhale Dairy Farm

By Sabrina Solomon
Halhale Dairy Farm demonstrates the development strategy of Eritrea which aims at transforming the economy and the lives of the people. To provide dairy products at a fair price and stabilize the market, 660 cattle were imported from Germany at the end of 2017 and placed at the newly established Halhale Dairy Farm, Southern region, which is around 550 hectares.

As Mr. Tekle, the manager of the farm puts it, “After they were imported, the animals had trouble adjusting but it was never expected of them to do so. Most of the cows were pregnant and they delivered as soon as they got here. The fact that the newborns were then born into the local reality helped them to adapt to the local climate instantly”.

Eritrea deplores US unlawful Acts

Eritrea deplores US unlawful Acts

The US Administration has leveled unacceptable accusations against Eritrea announcing associated measures that it will take against the Chief of Staff of Eritrea’s Defense Forces under what it terms the “Global Magnitsky Act”. The Government of Eritrea rejects, both in letter and spirit, the utterly baseless allegations and blackmail directed against it.

This is not, indeed, the first time for the US Administration to float such baseless smear campaigns against Eritrea. In his response of March 13 th , 2021 to US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Eritrea’s Foreign Minister had stated that “it is unfortunate that you have drawn certain conclusions on the basis of unsubstantiated media disinformation. I am also dismayed by the tone of your letter which seems to revert to unconstructive policies successive US Administrations had pursued on Eritrea in the past thirty years. I do not wish to go into acrimonious details in this letter but earnestly hope for timely remedies”. Read more
