Shame: The 2009 UN-imposed sanctions on Eritrea are lifted, but the sanctions imposed by the Eritrean Dictator on the Eritrean People remain in place!


By Drs. Tsegezab Gebregergis

It is reported today that the sanctions on Issayas Afeworki’s Eritrea, imposed in December 2009, have been lifted by the United Nations Security Council in a unanimous vote. This defective and unwise decision has been taken, much to the dismay of Eritreans throughout the world, while the absolute infringement of the fundamental freedoms of the Eritrean people, and the cruel sanctions imposed on them by the Eritrean dictator, remain intact.

Mdrebahri strongly believes that the fundamental freedoms of the Eritrean people will be regained and realised only if the Eritrean people launch a people’s uprising and topple the fascist Issayas Afeworki-led PFDJ regime.

Long live the struggle of the Eritrean people for freedom!
