500 Eritreans Demonstrate in front of UN Geneva Office Denouncing Human Trafficking and Dictatorship in Asmara
In the afternoon hours of Friday, 18 November 2011, about 500 Eritreans staged an angry demonstration in front of the United Nations Office in Geneva, Switzerland, urging world attention to the ongoing tragic human trafficking in Egypt and the Sudan affecting housands of Eritreans, Ethiopians and Sudanese nationals, mainly from the Darfur region.
Organized by youth groups in Germany and Switzerland, the demonstrators, most of them young below the age of 30, waved placards condemning the dictatorship in Eritrea and the human trafficking by Bedouin tribesmen who have been collecting huge ransoms and “harvesting” human organs from their victims.
Fevena and Embaba were among those who made the event lively.
A delegation representing the demonstrators was received by UN Officials and explained to them the heartbreaking situation of victims of human trafficking in Egypt and the Sudan, with Sinai as the centre of operations of those crimes. The delegation strongly urged the UN system and the international humanitarian community in general to act on the matter without delay and make pressure on the Egyptian and Sudanese authorities and take serious action against the criminals. A memorandum, videos and pictures of mass graves in Sinai were submitted to the UN officials to show what is going on in the said region.
Recently disclosed pieces of information revealed that that 10,000 persons have been victimized in the past three years, of which 3,000 have disappeared without trace.
