PRESS RELEASE: 12TH MARCH 2018, THE HAGUE, NETHERLANDS

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Eritrean women residing in 10 different countries in Europe convened on 8-10th of March in The Hague, the Netherlands for a march from Central Station to the International Criminal Court (ICC) under the banner of “Respect Human Rights in Eritrea”, followed by a two day conference of historical importance and magnitude discussing the current situation of Eritrea in general, and in particular situation of women at home, along migration routes and in the diaspora.

The March and conference celebrated and reflected Eritrea’s diversity with representatives from several women’s organisations that included the youth, veteran freedom fighters, professionals and activists. Some of the accomplishments of the event were the following:

  • A march against the gross human rights abuses in Eritrea in general and in particular its impact on Eritrean women and called for a constitutional governance and rule of law in Eritrea;
  • An appeal addressed to the International Criminal Court ( ICC) calling to hold the Eritrean regime accountable for committing gross human rights violations, as reported by the UN Human Rights council;
  • A two-day conference primarily discussing issues on how to empower women so that they effectively contribute their due share for a better outcome, by enhancing their role in the on-going struggle for political, social & economical change in Eritrea to play role in re-establishing peace, stability and the rule of law; and
  • Appointed a coordinating committee to overlook and strengthen the collaborative work locally as well as across the region, enhance participation and raise capacity of women.

The Conference provided an opportunity for participants to know one another and to exchange experiences and social challenges that women face in Eritrea and refugee camps including all forms of gender based violence.

Concerned with the ever-worsening vulnerable situation of the Eritrean people, the Conference dedicated substantial time for discussions on the deteriorating state of the nation and concluded by underlining the fact that all opposition groups and the women’s organisations have to come together to campaign and bring about a lasting solution to the current dire situation in Eritrea.

The conference has strengthened Eritrean women’s solidarity in Europe and across the globe.

Finally, we would like to thank all organisations and individuals who supported us financially and morally including all platforms of Eritrean media in the diaspora. Your assistance has enabled us to take our initiative further to the next level.

    Some of the news still being ignored by many Eritrean websites. These are crimes being committed on Eritreans in Sudan and many Arab nations such as Libya and Egypt by Arabs and some lowlife “Eritrean” Tewelijes of Beja and other riffraff .

      He has a reputation to deviate readers attention from a subject in discussion .
      Either ERITREANS or ETHIOPIANS ( except HGDF-WEYANE puppets )
      identified internal enemies within their society .
      The big snakes under ship skin reside among innocent people . Hit it’s head hard
      then those helpless citizens won’t leave their homeland for safety in strange places .
      Both security forces ( HGDF seleya and AGAZI police ) hold responsible for crimes
      committed against humanity .
      EYE WITNESS DOESN’T LIE for people who are true for themselves .
      Eritrean’s women demand for equality is not a question of political compromises
      but the price they paid dearly . We must show them solidarity to let them know
      that they also have patriotic brothers everywhere .

    Yes it is your turn ladies,the men has failed you miserably,they exposed you to the elements,it is time to mold them again starting from changing their diapers,potty training them to teaching them how to behave and act like men,after all it was my mom who made the biggest impact in who I am and how I view the world today. You are natural leaders,stand up or sit down and show the way like Ms Parks did on that infamous bus.
