Multi-Ethnic Federalism in Eritrea

Post by AbyssiniaLady » 20 Dec 2020, 22:06

Multi-Ethnic Federalism in Eritrea.

Eritrean Afar people are ready for a Multi-Ethnic Federalism in Eritrea where its ethnic identity, recognition and self-governance as a people is preserved at the federal government level. Though a minority in Eritrea, the Eritrean Afar still make up the majority in Dankalia, their traditional homeland, constituting more than 99% of local population.

Ethnic federations have proven to work in Africa and elsewhere in the world formations and nationalities. In much larger and more diverse societies and countries others have succeeded in maintaining their national unity and sovereignty

The PFDJ concept of Eritrea as “One Heart-one people”, “Hade Libi, Hade Hizbi”, the current mantra of the Eritrean government must be abolished. Unity without recognition of diversity is a recipe for prolonged conflict and insecurity. Eritrean Afar people are bearing the brunt of the Eritrean regime’s assimilation agenda and are being stripped of their identity which had evolved historically as a self-conscious and a strong self-sustaining ethnicity in Eritrea.

Our policy calls for Ethnic Federalism in Eritrea. Eritrea is a deeply diverse nation. The current Eritrean regime agenda is racist and is systemically designed to destroy the unity of Eritreans and it ssocial fabric. It is designed to subdue the smaller nationalities and weaken them in favor of aruling majority Tigrigna nationality. These policies by the current Eritrean regime have caused a collision between Eritreans within. The status quo in Asmara is unsustainable.

ዓባቕ ዑጉም boy, since telling outright lies is in your DNA, at least make it somewhat believable rather than making a nonexistent story from thin and dry Tigrai air! LOL!

This is a joke, right?
In Eritrea our motto is "love it or leave it".
They could be 110% of the region's population, if they don't like it, they can only move to a country they like.
The whole land of Eritrea belongs to all the people.
So please suggest to them Somalia, Djibouti or Abyssinia are other alternatives if they don't like it in Eritrea.

Somali woman,

Eritrea is too small for Ethnic federalism. :lol: What Eritrea needs is a legitimate democracy before it is too late like another little country called Denmark in Europe. :lol: Eritrea never had a history of Ethnic strife. Capisci donna ingannevole e brutta, grazie. Grazie un milione di volte. :evil: :lol:

Calm down, I understand that dividing Eritrea into Ethnic Federal States is Tigrinya people worst nightmare waiting to happen, however, the PFDJ think they will rule Eritrea uninterrupted for the next one hundred years.

Stupid lady,

:twisted: :lol: Eritrean Tigrigna make up the majority of the population. Ethnic federalism in Eritrea would primarily hurt the minorities. Whether Dankalia or Tigrigna or any other ethnic group, the best system for Eritrea is a democratic Eritrea, Denmark style. I don't hear any one for Ethnic federalism in Denmark, do ya ? :lol: :lol: BTW, hyena looking oldie, you are not from Dankalia, Eritrea, why don't fix your house first ? :twisted: :lol: rather than worry about Eritrea.

Introducing Eritrean Afar and Dankalia.

Dankalia is on the most sought after and prime real estate in Eritrea and the Horn of Africa. The Afar homeland of Dankalia and its 40,000 Square Kilometers of land, coastlines, territories and vast desserts holds Eritrea’s 70% of economic future with untapped natural resources, various minerals, precious metals, potash, and natural gas and more.

Dankalia is strategically situated on international shipping routes between the strategic passages at the heart of the red sea near Bab-el-Mandeb in proximity of Yemen and Saudi Arabia.Dankalia presents key geo-strategic asset for Afar and Eritrea to link the continent of Africa to Middle-East and Europe for global trade and intercontinental partnerships for development.

Dankalia and the Afar are critical in terms of peace and security in the region. This geopolitical region is crucial for international security, global investment opportunities, research andkey for the global fight against religious fundamentalism affecting regional peace and the development in the Hornof Africa.

During Eritrea’s independence struggle, the Afar Eritreans joined hands with their fellow Eritreans from all walks of life, regions and ethnic background and sacrificed their lives and struggled for more than 30 years to eventually realize Eritrea’s right to self-determination to finally become a sovereign state. However, a new tyrannical regime brought horrors, atrocities and depravities to the region marking the saddest story in the history of the Afar and modern history of the Horn of Africa. The country was turned into a repressive, murderous police state.

The coast of Dankalia was the birth place of Eritrean liberation struggle against Emperor Sellassie’s Feudal regime of Ethiopia, alongside their Eritrean brothers to ensure equality, ethnic diversityand democratic rights. The Eritrean Afar heroes and thinkers like Mohamed Omar Akito, Ibrahim Shehem and Ahmed Ahaw were the pioneers of Eritrea’s liberation struggle.

During the early 60’s and 70’s the Eritrean Afar were the faces of Eritrean resistances against occupations. Martyrs like Idris Gumhed, Yassin Abdalla, Musa Rashid Gaas, Ali Company, Ali Gafo, Mohamed Usman, Dini Ismail, Ahmed Hilal, Ali Ibarhim to mention a few, were the leading military commanders not only in Dankalia but extending to Samhar. The Afar participation was the turning point for the liberation struggle and gave the ELF much needed access to the sea and supply routes.
