Thousands of Eritreans Stage a Huge Demonstration to Decry Isaias Afeworki’s Repressive Rule (Video)
Awramba Times (Addis Ababa) – Thousands of Eritrean refugees flocked to the African Union (AU) Headquarters and Office of the European Union (EU) mission in Ethiopia on Friday, to decry Isaias Afeworki’s repressive rule and rights abuses, which forced them to flee their home country.
According to the demonstrators whom Awramba Times spoke to, the peaceful demonstration was organized to show an unwavering support for the UN council’s recent report on human rights abuses in Eritrea and call on international community to show solidarity for their cause.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimates that about 4,000 Eritreans flee the country each month.
