The founders of Liberia or "founding fathers" as some historians refer to them established a government modeled after the United States of America. They declared Liberia an independent state, the first on the continent of Africa, and established a constitutional republic as their former slave masters did. Hne" has gone home to rest "Dr.
To repent and return,to the just God of your fathers and to give thanks to your true Savior.
You need not confess you crimes. I grant you the your right to the Fifth Amendment. Its Academic and NOT enigmatic. His project involves photographing people who call Toronto home from all countries around the world. So naturally he knows every country and part of the the world, may be from his project or his interest.
When I told him I am from Eritrea, he told me about his subject. His name is Said and he is born from Assab, Eritrea. But I am glad Said got to represent Eritrea, so that we show our diversity or the people and the country. When I read the press release from the great city of Ottawa, and your message I can see that, it has the Canadian way of life, of tolerance, of diversity and equality all over.
I only have one comment with regards to point 5, that I think you should consider reviewing. Under Afar State rule all of the rights of Eritrean brothers and sisters will be respected and guaranteedto work, to own business, to have their rights to health care, and so on, Non Afar will not be elected or run Dankalia as it is now.
I agree with you, we do not need people who come from Asmara and become governors of Dankalia, enough with that crap but at the same time we do NOT want to exclude people who are residents because their ancestral back ground.
And I think this should be the case for all other Eritrean regions, and we should learn from the crisis this kind of arrangements creates in other parts of the world.
Glad you dropped by and continue to do so. The Afars as one of the constituent ethno-linguistic groups have fought against all foreign forces.
Sodha-Ella as historic site and the martyred Hillal as an Eritrean hero comes immediately to ones mind from the EPLFs side of the Eritrean armed struggle.
The absence of Afars in prominent leadership position and the dispute between the ELF and some Afar population in Dankalia which led to the request of the Afar fighters within the ELF to operate only in the Afar area which led to a bitter misunderstanding between the Tigre and Afar fighters of the ELF.
That is a very important perspective as pastoralism is the main livelihood of the Afars. The provision of social services, access to health care, education and economic revival of The Southern Red Sea Region of Eritrea are areas that must be pursued with a laser focus.
The GoE should continue on the course it has embarked upon in the expansion of health care services throughout this region. This aspect of issue, though demanding more finances and other resources, is self-evidently unambiguous to need further explication.
The issue of education in this region, however, needs further explanation here. Though the GoE has done a great job in introducing the mother tongue policy of education of using the Afar language as a medium of instruction through the fifth grade of elementary education, after which English is used in secondary education, the number of secondary school teachers who are Afars is quite minuscule.
This paucity of Afari secondary school teachers is primarily because there is no post secondary institution, be it a university or an institute, in the Southern Red Sea Region. The political implications of this post secondary training in this Afar region is huge in the sense that it will address one of the main political complaints of the Afars of Eritrea which is: With more graduates from these post secondary there will be enough Eritrean Afaris to take on the posts of leadership in the local administration.
Economically, beside what the GoE is doing like giving fishing boats to local fishermen, the UAE base and The Colluli Potash project should be the center of economic revival of this region.
First by investing a big chunk of revenue garnered from these two and investing it in this region in the building of infrastructures of the region roads, schools, hospitals and clinics etc. In that referendum IN WATCHING the flow of events over the past decade or so, it is hard to avoid the feeling that something very fundamental has happened in world history.
political form may eliminate some of the causes of war; it cannot eliminate all of them. The democratic peace thesis will hold only if all of the causes of war.
The democratic peace thesis is one of the most significant propositions to come out of social science in recent decades.
If true, it has crucially important implications for both theory and policy. Debating the Democratic Peace provides a comprehensive collection of the major writings on all sides of this issue. An argument in favour of Fukuyama's thesis is the democratic peace theory, which argues that mature democracies rarely or never go to war with one another.
This theory has faced criticism, with arguments largely resting on conflicting definitions of "war" and "mature democracy".Published: (Free Press). 1) Democratic states don't go to war with one another (Democratic Peace Thesis) 2) Democracies will outcompete non-democracies/the world will inevitably become democratic.
If 1 is true and 2 is not, then a mixture of democracies and non-democracies will exist, so conflict will still occur. This article seeks to explain the influence of the democratic-peace thesis on politics by offering a new understanding of theory: as a hermeneutical mechanism of attaching meaning to political concepts.
The hermeneutical mechanism is understood as a three-stage model in which theoretical constructions transform into public conventions and then into political convictions.
