Annul & Repeal Unjust Sanctions Against Eritrea and End Illegal Occupation by Ethiopia
This petition had 2,093 supporters
We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge Prime Minister Theresa May to act now to lift the two UN Security Council Resolutions 1907 (2009) and 2023 (2011) that were imposed on Eritrea and its people on the basis of fabricated charges and orchestrated by Eritrea's arch enemy, Ethiopia. Lifting of sanctions against Eritrea and implementation of the Eritrea Ethiopia Border Commission ruling will lay the ground for true confidence building measures that will open the path for normalisation of relations between Eritrea and Ethiopia, which will result in peace, stability and security in the Horn of Africa.
- Exert meaningful pressure on Ethiopia to respect international law, adhere to the final and binding delimitation and demarcation decision of the EEBC and thereby end the illegal occupation of sovereign Eritrean territories.
- Call Prime Minister Theresa May, and the British government to use its good offices and influence in order to stop the dehumanisation, harassment and character assassination of the Eritrean people and their government in the name of human rights and work for the immediate termination of the mandates of the UNHRC's Special Rapporteur.
- Urge the British government to respect the right of Eritreans to live in peace within the internationally recognised borders and lead their lives without fear of war or a threat of war; sanctions or a threat of sanctions or harassment by the Special Rapporteur.
- Urge the British government to advance stronger partnership between UK and Eritrea in the belief that all of us would benefit when UK and Eritrea have positive engagement and meaningful partnership. In the last 25 years, Eritrea has proven beyond any doubt to be a reliable partner in development and in maintaining peace and security in the horn of Africa.
