Dual Agenda: In Ethiopia’s civil war, Eritrea’s army exacted deadly vengeance on old foes
(01.11.2021) When Eritrea sent troops into the Tigray region, the secretive nation seized a double opportunity: It detained thousands of Eritrean refugees as it battled Ethiopia’s former rulers. Spearheading the bloody campaign: a colonel nicknamed ‘Son of Bread’.
(13.02.2021) On February 13, 2021, around 300 people demonstrated in Frankfurt/Main against the war in Tigray. They called to end the war. They condemned the crimes committed against the Eritrean refugees and the people in Tigray. They campaigned for the immediate withdrawal of the Eritrean army from Tigray: "We call on the international community to take action against Tyranny in Eritrea who have committed war crimes in the refugee camps in Tigray, and bring them to justice and impose sanctions on them now." The demonstration has been organized by Eritreans from Frankfurt.
Eritrean organizations call for an international day of action: Stop the War in the Horn of Africa!
Protest against war and forced recruitment, December 10
(07.12.2020) We condemn any involvement of the Eritrean regime in the civil war in Ethiopia. The Isayas Afewerki regime has been known since 1991 to instigate conflicts with neighbouring countries Sudan, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Yemen with war. Isayas Afewerki for this purpose uses an army, which is deployed for the aims of the regime through unlimited military service for men and women. There are clear indications that Eritrea is already carrying out extensive mobilization, including raids, in order to forcefully recruit more. The war poses great dangers for the entire region, for the people living there and the refugees seeking protection there.
Stop the war in the Horn of Africa! No participation of Eritrea in this war!
Stop forced recruitment into war! Protect and supply the refugees! Stop suffering!
We call on Eritrean groups and organizations as well as supporters all over the world to carry out actions in their towns on December 10, 2020, the International Day of Human Rights.
(24.11.2020) Human Rights Concern-Eritrea (HRCE) has received credible evidence that the Eritrean Armed forces including conscripts, have been sent to the Tigray region of Ethiopia and are engaged in heavy fighting with the Tigrayan People’s Liberation Forces (TPLF), alongside the Ethiopian armed forces.
We unreservedly condemn the aggressive intervention of Eritrean armed forces in Tigray, a province in an independent nation. There can be no justification for this unwarranted interference, and the resultant and unnecessary deaths of soldiers on both sides. We call upon Eritrea to withdraw its forces from Tigray immediately.
