Eritrea – the open defiance of ordinary people

Orders for people over 30 to do training with the Popular Army are now openly disobeyed, says ‘Sami’ – an opposition activist living in the capital, Asmara. “There is now a complete dis-connect between the population and the regime,” he told me in a conversation.

Sami described men and women openly discussing the regime and rejecting its demands. “The regime is fearful of attempting to enforce its orders because it knows they will not be obeyed,” he said.

Beautiful. The power of NO! Non compliance. No Consent!
