“Over 100 African activists and
academics from 52 of 54 African
countries sign letter to Eritrean
head of state”
Monday, 10th June 2019
DEAR MR PRESIDENT,
PLEASE WELCOME US TO ERITREA
AFRICAN DEMOCRACY ADVOCATES, JOURNALISTS AND HUMAN
RIGHTS ACTIVISTS ASK TO VISIT THEIR INCARCERATED
COLLEAGUES IN ERITREA
One hundred (100) leading African journalists, democracy and human rights
advocates took the opportunity on Africa Day – May 25th 2019 to write an open
letter to Eritrea’s President Isaias Aferwerki. It is released today Monday 10th
June 2019. They requested the head of state an opportunity to visit their
colleagues incarcerated in Eritrea.
In a message of solidarity with all the people of Eritrea the group appreciated the
recent progress made by Eritrea in normalizing relations with Ethiopia – two of
the Horn Africa’s most vital countries. They hoped this represented the a new era
of deepening stability and prosperity in the region They beseeched the President
to maintain the momentum of opening up Eritrea after a period of isolation that
was not only a loss to Eritrea but to all of Africa. They also observed that basic
freedoms and true development go hand in hand.
Additionally they expressed concern for the hostile climate that has prevailed in
Eritrea especially for journalists, oppositionists, human rights activists and the
proponents of democracy. They observed that many Eritreans had been
incarcerated for political reasons in part creating a climate of fear that has led to
considerable migration out of the proud country. Representing a cross-section of
similar journalists and activists from across the African continent, they formally
requested to visit their incarcerated colleagues in Eritrea to express not only
their solidarity with their Eritrean brothers and sisters but to remind them that
Africa will never forget or abandon them.
