Do you know how the world looks on this side?

Refugees

To refugees sitting in the dark rooms of deportation centers, let us tell them that we will sit with them in the dark and hold their hands until we can make it to help them see the bright side of life.

For all the broken promises and temporary “help the refugees laws” in the making, for all the traumatized children in the jungle of refugees’ camps, let us tell them that there is an alternative to this life of dirt and humiliation.

Let us make them believe that the glorified international meetings and limousines parked outside carrying those officials can be turned to a “believe me” work for them.

Let us hold their hands tight before we lose them forever to those prisons waiting for them saying “welcome back to me, now I will chew you and spit all I cannot digest of your tortured bodies”.

Let them have a chance before they leap to the unknown and before they are lost again, this time to a dungeon.

Refugees might be unknown to us, nameless and maybe never to be seen again. They are the outcome of broken promises and fake encounters.  They are those who believed that salt looks like sugar and followed traffickers to their damnation and the abyss of pain.

Our side needs to show loyalty to human beings, integrity and above all stand by them when all is crumbling around them. When the “refuge” they believed to have found becomes a cathexis of fear.

    Dear, Assena,
    Please restrain the few pfdj thugs who have never been exposed to freedom of speech /expression, respect for one onother. respecting others opinions, co existance, and understanding.
    These people are used to getting their ass beaten by pfdj to behave, and they don’t understand any kind of disscussion. They have nothing to offer except insults, mainly Agame Woyane and so on.
    Please try to take some time and put some kind of control and weed out the eray meray or half Tigrawot , who have changed this site the play ground of Bashai Lema’s and grandchildren.

      Why is the poor Eritrean shepherd often depicted as a backward human being??????????????
      Eritrea’s worst problem is not the PFDJ regime. It is the ruinous mentality of Eritrea’s small-brained shepherds. The Eritrean shepherd unfortunately is not the inheritor and carrier of the enormous wisdom and decency of his ancestors.
      You call Isaias, who was born in Asmara, an Asmarino through and through, leaving aside his evil works and past, “Agamino or Temebieno”!! But the irony and the reality so far is, he “alone” decides whether you (stupid shepherd man) can be called “Eritrean”! Can you see the contradiction, Berhe begiE stone head and rei’si miraKh??????????????????????????????????

      BS T, wrote “eray meray or half Tigrawot , ” and who the f**k are you? to insult every noble Tigrayan? Is it the Tigrayan who is being sold as an Arab slave as he insults his fathers and burns his own Tigre Tigrinya languages? or is it your likes? One noble proud person told a cheap person like you : “ቅድሚ ኣፍካ ምኽፋትካ መቐመጫኻ ካብቲ ሳሕሳሕ ዓረብ ሓልዎ ።”
