In this century of technology the advantages of the media are extraordinary, with news and other related activities like our fight to freedom, human rights and others.
However, being responsible to what you post and say is very important as a single line or word could escalate conflicts and results into dangerous consequences.
I love browsing several online media outlets to read news about Eritrea as all other Eritreans do and I strongly support all sort of discussion and arguments. Meskeren.net is one of the online media that I also use occasionally for news, however the small title that are often posted with red bold colours by the editors of the net (http://www.meskerem.net/) are often with hatred, humiliations and create fear, division and stigmatization.
They are always full of words or small statements that are dangerous and incite hatred and conflicts among the communities. Often they concentrate on individual’s identity which is should not be the case. This is an OUTDATED and INGORANT politics exploited by Isayas and his comrades to supress people for centuries.
Additionally it looks them (Meskerem.net) have Ethiophobia, as an Eritrean I cannot comprehend if someone tries to alienate himself or herself from our neighbouring people. As the Western Eritreans enjoy trade and intermarriages with their Eastern Sudanese tribes same is true for the Eritreans in the southern part to have close ties with the Northern tribes of Ethiopia. And there should not be a room for politics which creates unnecessary wedge between Eritrean and Ethiopian in particular Tigrayans. Hence, it’s not necessary to dig into some once personal identity and stigmatize him/her for his origins, it is nonsense.
My advice to the meskeren.net’s editorials is there will be a price to pay, we Eritreans suffered enough and there should not be room for provocative words rather we need reconciliatory words. And I call upon all concerned people to advice the net to re-consider and discuss thoroughly for any editorial before dispatched to the eye of the Eritrean public.
