E-petition: Say No to the UNjust Sanctions against Eritrea

posted 29 Jan 2012, 06:33 by D Woldeab

The UN Security Council passed a resolution imposing sanctions on Eritrea on the 23rd of December 2009, with full support from the British government, for allegedly providing financial support to the Somali insurgents and in relation with the conflict with Djibouti.  The sanctions include an arms embargo, travel bans and asset freezes. No evidence has been presented to substantiate the accusations.  The British government has classified the evidence it claimed it has and would not disclose it to our community representatives or anyone else for that matter.   This has taken place at a time when Ethiopia continues to militarily occupy sovereign Eritrean territories in violation of the UN Charter and the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission´s final and binding delimitation and demarcation decisions. 


Are you as angered by this patent injustice as we are?  If so, take ACTION now. An e-petition has been set up on Downing Street’s website to register our complaints with the British Prime Minister. Please visit the following link to access the petition:
