Current Situation of Eritrea
Red Sea Afar people mainly youth and women are fleeing the country. This is not the routine fleeing the country experience, but new condition is that the daily number fleeing the repressive regime has increased significantly. The daily reports of persons fleeing Eritrea has increased from 80 to 120 per day.
The load of comforting and caring these unregistered persons fall on the Afar community until they are officially registered with the UNHCR. As we all know, registering takes long and it enables to understand the burden of the recipient community. Hence, it is easier to know to what extent the potential refugees together with the community suffer.
Moreover, the donor community is feeling the burden of supporting Eritrean refugees. Second, the donors are shifting their focus to Southern Sudan and other parts of western and Sahel countries, and prioritizing where there are natural and non- natural disaster affected areas. This is serious regarding the suffering of the Red Sea Afar refugees.
In the last six months, the “Sha’bea” / E.P.D.F regime has continued its repression and even further complicated its genocide did not only limited to direct attacks but also started the indirect actions that attacks not only humans but also livestock (sheep, goats, cattle, and camel and including aquatic resources)

Review overview

    pure fabrication to lure the hidden agenda of secession of the afar people to help Ethiopia get outlet to the one ever can claim that, they are more tortured ,imprisoned and killed by DIA than the highlanders. DIA has pushed families flee country cross the desert without food and water .he is still taking highlanders children for the endless military service.
    On time there was a new about formation of an Afar government, now about Afar immigration and genocide. This is entrapment for the Afar people .we need to condemn such false allegations which can lead the country to chaos and disintegration.

      You know there are people who see life in one box and anyone who do not fit in that box is unusual creature .
      Condemn Afar people allegation because it will divert our attention to save people from highlands .
      I do not know if this is the mind of stupidity or arrogance .

  • ahmed saleh August 8, 2014

    Our opposition organizations missteps who are locked in their own world , obsessed with themselves to satisfy
    their ago paved the way to deteriorate the situation . We expect to transform our wishes to one rooted in reality
    but unfortunately until now we are only fooling ourselves without clear , detailed purposeful goal .
    Our people at north , south , west and east deserve better to be heard their cry for help and to see them simply
    as reflection of our own desires and values . These innocent people might feel alienated and offended by their
    own country men in both sides . HGDF do their dirty job and oppositions only in paper like ghost .

    • gedem August 8, 2014

      I agree with your comment that we should stand against all suppression again anyone in the country .we should also stand against all those who has hidden agenda to put the country in danger .To quote Gergish “no Afar in Eritrea but Denkelia ” this is what the Red Sea Afar Democratic Org. wants and this will not serve the interest of Eritrean people in general and Afar people in specific.

      • ahmed saleh August 9, 2014

        The article is pure and plain about the deteriorating conditions in Denkalia nothing else. But to search for
        political arguments on the expense of those poor people conditions shows dishonesty and biased thinking .

  • Berazio August 8, 2014

    Under this regime we all are bleeding equally, regardless of ethnicity, creed and region. This is a sophisticated strategy, and propaganda that is originated by the regime to make the opposition weak as it is. So people can think ethnically rather than nationally. This kind of stories do harm than do benefit. This time, Assenna 0 and the regime 1. Please tell me which ethnic group is having a good time under this regime? Assenna if you answer this question, this article is justified.

    • ahmed saleh August 9, 2014

      Why ? Because they are not from our region now to hear their plight became political propaganda .
      For narrow minded selfish people this kind of stories may sound destructive but in reality it reflects the truth
      about human beings condition inside the country . At least have a little mercy to those people in Denkalia for
      humanity reason instead your corrupted mind to play dirty political game on their expenses . What a shame .
      Assenna is also the voice for the voiceless Afar Eritreans too , so no need to give them grade .

      • Berazio August 9, 2014

        what do you mean they are not from our region,my question was who is having good time under this what way do they suffer more than any other ethnic group. besides. i am solid Assenna supporter,when i score, it was just to express my opinion that the article serves the regime better than the opposition.

    Unfortunately, the suffering of Afars is rarely reported by others, as if they are living in a distant part of our continent.
    It’s in the interest of Eritrea and its people to take care of every one.
    If we don’t show solidarity with each other sooner or later we will all suffer. Indifference is very damaging.

  • ahmed ali August 9, 2014

    We the red afars strongly seek to be free from eritrea.enough for repression,poverity,backwardness,immigration….etc.we never want to be included to eritrea.we seek tb free.

    • Berazio August 9, 2014

      Garba Naba, u not Afar

    • True Lies August 9, 2014

      But ,I hope it will be based on refferendum ,if not it is your right.We secedeed from colonizere Ethiopia under article 39 section “A” sub section “C”.

  • True Lies August 9, 2014

    According to many Afars ..the reason PFDJ prohibited Tigrinyas from fisheng in the Red sea yet allowed Afars is ,for genocide of the Afar people.Because Iran dumped it’s nuclear waste in the red sea in 2010..that cause Afar women to develop breast cancer & Afar men to develop prostate cancer.Afar people are being exterminated to make space for tigrinyas.”
    That is the news from many Afars who want their own country.

    • WediHagher August 10, 2014

      “Afar people are being exterminated to make space for tigrinyas”.

      True Lies

      Depending on who you talk to, the story is different. But one thing is said by almost all Afars I have met: they are treated with extreme cruelty. Why ?, nobody can give convincing reasons yet. Is DIA trying to tell them go to Ethiopia ?, may be.

    • Berazio August 10, 2014

      Then the Tigryans will have breast and prostate cancer too. write with logic.why would they send the Tigrinians to a place where you claim is Radio active.
