Exposing human rights violations through sport in Eritrea — is anyone taking notice?

Post by Awash » 07 Oct 2019, 03:48

...The intersection between sport and human rights highlighted above brings me to the main issue of this article – how Eritrean sportsmen and women indirectly reveal the state of human rights at home, but how very few people are taking notice. 

A few days ago, five players from the Eritrean under 20 football team absconded from their hotel in Jinja, Uganda in the middle of the Council of East and Central African Football Associations Challenge Cup. The players are likely to seek asylum in Uganda and turn their backs on Eritrea for good if the political situation remains the same...

...While there is a long history of African athletes abdicating from national sports teams while representing their nations at international sporting events, the peculiarities that force many Eritreans to do so are quite different.

Many of the sportsmen and women from other African countries who leave their camps during international sporting events target mainly countries in the global north with buoyant economies and sometimes better policies on asylum seekers. They do so mostly to seek green pastures and better economic opportunities. Admittedly, some also do so to escape conflicts and civil war. Eritreans for their part have used sporting events as a means to escape from compulsory military service that has been described by some as a form of slavery.

In October 2015, 10 players from the Eritrean soccer team the Red Sea Camels defected after playing in a World Cup qualifying match against the Botswana national team.

Military service is compulsory for all Eritreans at 18 years old and above. While the policy governing this stipulates military service will be done for 18 months, in practice the military service is indefinite. ...

I told you many times before you moron, because they are getting immigrant visa on demand.

How many people do you think would remain in Mexico or Columbia if they were to get US visa just like that? Are these two countries then also North Korea of Latin America? Why do you think Trump needs to erect a wall, you moron?

Visa is a weapon used to destabilise poor countries that refuse to tow the line, get this inside your ugly behind.

I've never seen awash cry for Eritreans deported from Ethiopia because of "eye color" or Eritreans today, whose identities are being routinely stolen in Tgray's refugee camps.

Why?

These are crimes committed by the weyane junta, hence in awash's mind are not crimes.

You idiot, do you think going to a refugee camp or Libyan detention camp is a picnic? They're risking their lives by the thousands to flee from your savage Agame junta. Those athletes just got a chance to avoid the refugee and detention camps and took that chance. Others end up languishing, dying, drowning etc.etc Some get a second chance and go to Singapore. Moron.

You moron crybaby. My family members got deported at that time. You don't even know anyone of those who got deported. And you pretend to care about the Eritrean people?

They are not going to Libya to stay in Libya you idiot, they are on their way somewhere, to a promised land.
They are not fleeing from "hell in Eritrea", they are coming to "heaven in the west".
Is your brain so tiny to dig this?
Running from "hell in Eritrea" stops once you're outside Eritrea.
Going to "heaven in the west" will take you through Libya, Sinai, sharks and alligators of the kind that Trump is said to be planning along the US-Mexico border.

The issue is not whether your family members got deported (which is obviously a lie), but why have you never mentioned those crimes even in passing? You defend the weyane, at every opportunity. Are you a masochist?

Hell, you even claim PIA started the war. There's not even one Eritrean, who believes in that.

What about those whose identities is being stolen today, btw? Do you have any empathy for them?

I might not know anyone deported but I have a brother who sacrificed his life fighting your Meqele junta, you hoe!

Obviously, you don't know what you'retalking about since you or your family weren't vicimized by either regimes. But, since those in Eritrea were and are being cooked alive, the priority should be to alleviate the suffering of the Eritrean people under your favorite Agame junta. And, the Eritrean people flee from your junta and find safe haven in Ethiopia now and for the last 20 years. So, why are you crying about an event of 20 years ago while the Eritrean people have been and are now under the yoke of the most oppressive regime on earth?
It's apparent you don't have the well beingof the Eritrean people at heart. I stead, you want to defend your Agame god from being held accountable for crimes against humanity he commits against the Eritrean people.

-My father was/is a Tegadalay for 17 years (1974-91) & my brother got martyred in 1999 in Egri Mekhel, I've spent half my life in exile...

No, I'm not victimized at all. :roll:

95% of Eritreans, if not more, are victimized.

-They're not fleeing for a safe haven in Ethiopia but are using the country as transit point to, in their minds, greener pastures.

-Their identities are being stolen today, as we speak. I'm not talking about, 20 years ago. Those you're claiming are there for safe haven are being robbed and the agame are seeking asylum in their names; while they rot in shimbella, may ayni camps.

-Don't mind me btw, if I support the regime or not. What is that to you? It's none of your business, is it? Don't even brother to convince me in anything, you believe in. I don't give a hoot, what's in your sick/sold out/convoluted mind. You can die a terrible death TODAY, as far as I'm concerned.

*Good luck in convincing other Eritreans, though.

Mushmush Agame, my father was killed by the Derg; my brother, sister, and a whole lot of cousins/relatives deported by weyane. Ethiopia has been, for the last 2 decades, a safe haven for the Eritrean people fleeing from the worst, most oppressive regime on earth.
Meanwhile, Eritrea under your Agame regime has been the pressure cooker of the Eritrean people. You think you are a victim? Think again, fessfass Agame worshipper. You found a safe haven in the West and criticize those who want to be safe from tyranny of Agame wedi komarit medlin berad, your god. Mushmush wedi sebeyti, you should be deported back to deqi komarit ASAP so you can enjoy their company. Wedi [deleted].
