Conspiracy and Lies for Sanctions: Chronology


  • Recalls paragraphs 16 and 17 of resolution 1907 (2009) and recognises that during the course of its current and four previous mandates the SEMG has not found conclusive evidence that Eritrea supports Al-Shabaab;

Silver Jubilee of the Eritrean Referendum

April 23rd-25th 2018 marked the Silver Jubilee of the Eritrean Independence Referendum and it has been twenty-five years since Eritrea was declared a sovereign country. This historic event was a watershed moment in the history of the Eritrean people. ... "The freeness and fairness of the process has been certified by the observers. This outcome is not surprising or unexpected. … In the event, it constitutes a delightful and sacrosanct historical conclusion to the choice of the Eritrean people. And although it has been decided that formal independence will be declared on 24 May 1991, Eritrea is a sovereign country as of today, April 27, 1993."

Over 200,000 Petitioners Slam Sickening COI-Eritrea Report

Eritrean Global Action for Justice

More than 10,000 Eritreans and their friends from across Europe inundated Geneva on Tuesday, June 21, 2016, to protest against the politically driven agenda of the UN Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights and to condemn the COI-Eritrea for its preposterous conclusion that “crimes against humanity have been committed in Eritrea since 1991.” This finding flies against the reality on the ground in Eritrea and is a total fabrication. Equating Eritrea’s National Service with enslavement not only is disgraceful, but it also adds insult to injury to the millions of men and women of African origin that were and continue to be victimized by the crimes of slavery in the Americas. The protestors also submitted more than 200,000 petitions from 81 countries across the globe to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
