Eritrean Sanctions Must be Annulled and Repealed Today!

Solution for War Ravaged Horn of Africa Rests on Constructive Engagement, not Sanctions. Stop Scapegoating Eritrea.

December 2, 2011
Mr. President,

I am outraged that your ambassador at the UN, Susan Rice, is pushing the Security Council to place more sanctions against the people of Eritrea. This latest call for sanctions, like the one in 2009, is politically motivated and doesn’t serve US national interest.

The allegations being thrown at Eritrea are pure fabrication. The charges, concocted by Ethiopia, are groundless. For example, the Ethiopian accusation of a “bombing plot of an African Union session in Addis Ababa” like what a US embassy cable from 2006 exposed is a pure fabrication by the Ethiopia government. The SEMG report’s main actor of this fictional plot, Colonel Gemetchu Ayana, is in fact an Ethiopian army officer, not an Eritrean as the report falsely alleges.

The draft resolution being pushed by the US Ambassador to the UN itself was drafted and is orchestrated by Ethiopia and those who want to prop up the lawless regime in Ethiopia at the expense of the people of Eritrea. I would like to remind you that Ethiopia is a country that had brought untold suffering on the people of Eritrea for six decades and it continues to do so.

The Eritrean population, which suffered seven decades of repeated UN injustices, shouldn’t be made to suffer more injustice by this world body. Besides, putting more sanctions against Eritrea and the innocent people of Eritrea will not bring peace to the war ravaged Horn of Africa; in fact, this is a reckless act designed to reignite existing simmering conflicts and to create new ones.

Finally, the solution is not in scapegoating or isolating Eritrea. The solution is on constructive engagement. That is why I strongly urge your administration lift the sanctions that were imposed on this young nation on Dec. 23, 2009 and push Ethiopia to implement the final and binding demarcation decision of the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission (EEBC) without preconditions or further delay. Ethiopia’s refusal to implement this decision is at the heart of the entire crisis in the Horn of Africa. It is this issue that must be addressed first and foremost.

Dear Ambassador Susan Rice,

I am outraged that you are pushing the Security Council to place more sanctions against the people of Eritrea. This latest call for sanctions, like the one in 2009, is politically motivated and doesn’t serve the cause of peace in the Horn of Africa.
You know well that the allegations being thrown at Eritrea are pure fabrication. The charges, concocted by Ethiopia, are groundless. For example, the Ethiopian accusation of a “bombing plot of an African Union session in Addis Ababa” like what a US embassy cable from 2006 exposed is a pure fabrication by the Ethiopia government. The SEMG report’s main actor of this fictional plot, Colonel Gemetchu Ayana, is in fact an Ethiopian army officer, not an Eritrean as the report falsely alleges.

The draft resolution you are pushing was the one authored and orchestrated by Ethiopia. Don’t try to prop up the lawless regime in Ethiopia at the expense of the people of Eritrea. I would like to remind you that Ethiopia is a country that had brought untold suffering on the people of Eritrea for six decades and it continues to do so. Don’t let the people of America and Eritrea down.

The Eritrean population, which suffered seven decades of repeated UN injustices, shouldn’t be made to suffer more injustice from your office. This is a reckless act designed to reignite existing simmering conflicts and to create new ones. It doesn’t serve the US national interest.

Finally, the solution is not in scapegoating or isolating Eritrea. The solution is on constructive engagement; that is what President Obama campaigned for. Don’t sabotage his foreign policy for your own adventure. That is why I strongly urge you to work to lift the sanctions that were imposed on this young nation on Dec. 23, 2009 and instead push Ethiopia to implement the final and binding demarcation decision of the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission (EEBC) without preconditions or further delay. Ethiopia’s refusal to implement this decision is at the heart of the entire crisis in the Horn of Africa. It is this issue that must be addressed first and foremost.

Dear Ambassador,

I am glad for your principled stand against the US Ambassador’s the vicious plan to place more sanctions against the people of Eritrea. Like the one in 2009, this latest push for sanctions is also politically motivated. It is not designed to serve the cause of peace in the Horn of Africa.

The allegations being thrown at Eritrea are pure fabrication. The charges, hatched by the US and concocted by Ethiopia, are groundless. For example, the Ethiopian accusation of a “bombing plot of an African Union session in Addis Ababa” like what a US embassy cable from 2006 exposed is a pure fabrication by the Ethiopia government. The Ethiopian government is known for committing acts of terrorism and blaming them on Eritrea. The SEMG report’s main actor of the fictional plot authored by Ethiopia, Colonel Gemetchu Ayana, is in fact an Ethiopian army officer, not an Eritrean as the report falsely alleges.

As you know well the first draft of the resolution in your hands was authored and circulated by Ethiopia and those who want to prop up the lawless regime in Ethiopia at the expense of the people of Eritrea. I would like to remind you that Ethiopia is a country that had brought untold suffering on the people of Eritrea for six decades and it continues to do so. I hope you wouldn’t allow it to do more damage. Enough is enough.
The Eritrean population, which suffered seven decades of repeated US injustices, shouldn’t be made to suffer more injustices. All what the people of Eritrea want is to leave in peace and develop their country through their own sweat. Why should they be punished for standing up for their rights. Putting more sanctions against the innocent people of Eritrea will not bring peace to the war ravaged Horn of Africa; in fact, this is a reckless act designed to encourage Ethiopia reignite existing simmering conflicts and to create new ones. You are the only one who can block this from happening.

Finally, scapegoating or isolating Eritrea is not the solution. The solution is on constructive engagement. That is why I strongly urge you to continue your principled stand. Lift the sanctions that were imposed on this young nation on Dec. 23, 2009 and urge Ethiopia to implement the final and binding demarcation decision of the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission (EEBC) without preconditions or further delay.

Ethiopia’s refusal to implement this decision is at the heart of the entire crisis in the Horn of Africa. It is this issue that must be addressed first and foremost.

Dear Ambassador,

I applaud your principled stand against the US Ambassador’s vicious plan to place more sanctions against the people of Eritrea. Like the one in 2009, this latest push for sanctions is also politically motivated. It is not designed to serve the cause of peace in the Horn of Africa. It is designed to punish an African country that has dared to call wrong western policies on Somalia by their right name.

The allegations being thrown at Eritrea are pure fabrication. The charges, hatched by the US and concocted by Ethiopia, are groundless. For example, the Ethiopian accusation of a “bombing plot of an African Union session in Addis Ababa” like what a US embassy cable from 2006 exposed is a pure fabrication by the Ethiopia government. The Ethiopian government is known for committing acts of terrorism and blaming them on Eritrea. The SEMG report’s main actor of the fictional plot authored by Ethiopia, Colonel Gemetchu Ayana, is in fact an Ethiopian army officer, not an Eritrean as the report falsely alleges.

As you know well the first draft of the resolution was authored and circulated by Ethiopia and those who want to prop up the lawless regime in Ethiopia at the expense of the people of Eritrea. As you know very well Ethiopia is a country that had brought untold suffering on the people of Eritrea for six decades and it continues to do so. Why the Security Council entertain a resolution drafted by Ethiopia, an archenemy of the Eritrean people is mind boggling to say the least. Ethiopia should be stopped from being a tool of the west to destroy yet another innocent African country.

The Eritrean population, which suffered seven decades of repeated US injustices, shouldn’t be made to suffer more injustices. All what the people of Eritrea want is to leave in peace and develop their country through their own sweat. Why should they be punished for standing up for their rights? Putting more sanctions against the innocent people of Eritrea will not bring peace to the war ravaged Horn of Africa; in fact, this is a reckless act designed to encourage Ethiopia reignite existing simmering conflicts and to create new ones. You are the only one who can block this from happening.

Finally, scapegoating or isolating Eritrea is not the solution. The solution is on constructive engagement. That is why I strongly urge you to continue your principled stand.

Dear Ambassador,

I am outraged in the fact that you are a player in the US Ambassador’s vicious plan to place more sanctions against the people of Eritrea. Like the one in 2009, this latest push for sanctions is also politically motivated. It is not designed to serve the cause of peace in the Horn of Africa and as an African you ought to know better.

The allegations being thrown at Eritrea are pure fabrication. The charges, hatched by the US and concocted by Ethiopia, are groundless. For example, the Ethiopian accusation of a “bombing plot of an African Union session in Addis Ababa” like what a US embassy cable from 2006 exposed is a pure fabrication by the Ethiopia government. The Ethiopian government is known for committing acts of terrorism and blaming them on Eritrea. The SEMG report’s main actor of the fictional plot authored by Ethiopia, Colonel Gemetchu Ayana, is in fact an Ethiopian army officer, not an Eritrean as the report falsely alleges. Do not allow yourself to be used. Stand up for the right of Africans.

As you know well the first draft of the resolution you sponsored was authored and circulated by Ethiopia and those who want to prop up the lawless regime in Ethiopia at the expense of the people of Eritrea. I would like to remind you that Ethiopia is a country that had brought untold suffering on the people of Eritrea for six decades and it continues to do so. Why do you allow yourself to commit more damage on other Africans? All what Eritreans are trying very hard to do is that Africans can do it on their own. They don’t want to see Africans killing Africans. That is why they are asking the Somali people to be left alone. Don’t be an instrument of Ethiopia’s design to destroy the Horn of Africa.

The Eritrean population, has suffered seven decades of repeated US and Ethiopian injustices, you shouldn’t be used to bring more injustices. All what the people of Eritrea want is to leave in peace and develop their country through their own sweat. Why should they be punished for standing up for their rights? Putting more sanctions against the innocent people of Eritrea will not bring peace to the war ravaged Horn of Africa; in fact, this is a reckless act designed to encourage Ethiopia reignite existing simmering conflicts and to create new ones. Would you be willing to be used as an instrument for suffering on Africa’s children? I don’t think so.

Finally, scapegoating or isolating Eritrea is not the solution. The solution is on constructive engagement. That is why I strongly urge you to stop being used. Do the right thing. Instead work to lift the sanctions that were imposed on this young nation on Dec. 23, 2009 and urge Ethiopia to implement the final and binding demarcation decision of the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission (EEBC) without preconditions or further delay. Ethiopia’s refusal to implement this decision is at the heart of the entire crisis in the Horn of Africa. It is this issue that must be addressed first and foremost.
