Dear Asena listeners and readers, as you probably know, Asena is being fully funded by a few Eritreans who live all over the world.  The transmission fee to Eritrea has been a challenge but Asena was able to stay on the air because of few committed individuals.  The extraordinary work that Asena is doing is not a secret. Asena has been getting positive feedback from inside and outside the country.  And those encouraging words have been motivating us, Asena Media Foundation and the few individuals, whoa re determined to move forward and do whatever it takes to speak out for the poor and the weak, young and old.

TesfayThe European Union is considering continuing with its controversial development aid to Eritrea totaling 122-million Euros (154-million USD) this year. Widespread opposition is growing in view of unrelenting Eritrean government violation of human and democratic rights. The EU is also criticized for not requiring Eritrea to adhere to acceptable standards of transparency and accountability.  Reporters without Borders says the EU is handing over a blank check to the Eritrean government which is globally identified as authoritarian and extreme.  Civic and political groups have also expressed disappointment at EU’s continued support of the government.
