People flee from Eritrea

In this week in the Mediterranean between Africa and Italy more than 300 boat people drowned. By the end of the government in Rome expects a total of 100,000 refugees who arrive in Italy. Most come from Eritrea. The Eritrean Government are committed at the young men to indefinite military service and forced labor. Eritrea is also among the countries of the world where Christians are the most oppressed and persecuted because of their religious affiliation. Human rights violations such as torture, killings and arrests are commonplace.

Dramatic portrayals of a refugee

Teisendorf – As a deserter from Eritrea, through war zones such as Sudan and the Mediterranean: A refugee describes his long journey to freedom after Teisendorf.

Eritrea – a country in which a person is considered to be a will-less piece of meat. From this country they want to get away and take inhuman exertions, the arbitrariness of the dictator Isaias Afewerki, who tolerates no opposition – he is since May 24, 1993 President and head of the transitional government – to escape. Samson Barnebas, 28 years old, is one of the young men of this country, who had to experience an escape, as they flicker across the television screens every day, on his own body.

Escape from inhumane conditions

Escape from the home that you love and you have to leave but will not be at the mercy of an inhuman dictatorship. Not hunger, war and destruction are driving, but the inhuman system. To the five percent of the population and unsecured indications for follow are probably even more now out of the country. The country cuts herself off from the outside. What little we know comes from refugees. Belonging to the ”wrong” religion and ”wrong” political view ends in jail and then usually with death.

After his school education – Samson Barnebas attended high school and speaks good English – he had to go to the military. This common practice in Eritrea is in absolute arbitrariness and the young men leaving while in military service, as the manager wants it. This may years, even decades to be. Eritrea is located in a perpetual border war with Ethiopia and needs these men. The military service of Samson had been going on from 2003 to 2011, when he decided to flee. The with him now in Teisendorf arrived young men independently have a similar history behind it.

Eritrea – the ”North Korea of Africa”

To get an idea of the conditions in this country: Eritrea is often referred to as the ”North Korea” Africa, where the political conditions make life almost unbearable. In May 2013 asked the Special Rapporteur of the United Nations – Sheila Keetharuth – in its report serious and persistent human rights violations, including arbitrary killings and arrests, forced disappearances, torture, and lack of expression, religion and assembly firmly. In the press freedom organization ”Reporters without Borders” established ranking the country is in 2013 the 179th and thus repeats the last place one.

To be taken up as a deserter means certain death in Eritrea. So it was for the men to come as quickly as possible out of the country. After a 16-hour march Samson Barnebas reached the border with Sudan. In Sudan, he spent a year hiding near the border with Libya. To be discovered in the Sudan, usually means a kidnapping to torture, to publish data from relatives in Eritrea and then to extort these relatives to raise money for the release.

In Libya, soldiers detained him for over a year. With $ 1,200 he purchased the freedom and reached for the price of another $ 3,300 on a not ”seaworthy” boat leaving the harbor but why could not leave. The money was lost. Again and again helped his father, who lives in Norway family financially. With another boat that he had to pay again, it went over the Mediterranean and the Italian Navy attacked him and another 310 refugees on her 15 hour long voyage across the Mediterranean on. Meanwhile, the flight devoured already $ 7,300.

Finally arrived in Teisendorf

The money always needed came with the help of so-called money dealers from Norway to Libya, a not exactly confidence-inspiring handling. Banking transactions, such as transfers to European standards, are not possible. After ten day stay in Italy we took the train to Munich and there were the young men and a Nigerian family with three small children, the allocation in the house on the Loose Road in Teisendorf.

Marrakech 2014: Nguse Amlosom gives Eritrea first African gold

of Eritrea made history by winning his country’s medal at the African Senior Athletics Championships after taking the men’s 10,000m gold medal on the first day of competition in Marrakech, Morocco.

nguse-amlosom-marrakechAmlosom, who finished eighth in the 25-lap event at the 2013 World Championships and 15th at the 2012 Olympics, won the race in 28:11.07 ahead of Moroccan champion Mustapha El Aziz (28:11.36) and 2008 world junior champion and Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games silver medallist from Kenya, Josphat Bett, who came third in 28:11.61.

However it was bad news for Uganda, as the favourite and 2014 Commonwealth Games champion, , did not start the race and reigning world junior champion Joshua Cheptegei did not finish.

After taking bronze in 2010 and silver in 2012, led a South African 1-2 in the men’s shot put taking the gold medal this time with a throw of 19.84m ahead of teammate Jaco Engelbrecht with 18.87m.  Congo’s Franck Owaka threw 18.74m to take the bronze medal.

BuwGjHQIMAAjlIWElsewhere, the African record holder and two-time continental champion Amy Sène of Senegal suffered an upset in the women’s Hammer throw Final.

Sène, who set her African record of 69.70m record set in May this year, could only manage 64.66m behind gold medallist Laetitia Bambara of Burkina Faso, who achieved 65.44m, while Sarah Ben Saad of Tunisia came third with 60.97m.

”Mehraf Bahta The riot against European gold is already a classic”

The riot against European gold is already a classic. But it’s the long journey that Meraf Bahta done that impresses the most. It’s hard to imagine what she went through after the escape to Sweden. Therefore feels the gold all the way into the heart.

Last Friday was the Netherlands Sifan Hassan too strong for Abeba Aregawi in the final over 1500 meters. It seemed to be the same show when Hassan challenged Meraf Bahta the stretch and seemed to relax your grip.

But Bahta replied. Held against. Increased again. And pulled away.

Sweden’s first gold in Zurich came after the hottest duel in the championship. Meraf Bahta showed both mental and physical strength when she broke fancied Hassan.

The Dutch had indeed Friday’s final at 1500 meters in the legs – possibly, it was crucial to the outcome – but Bahta did a perfect race from start to finish.

The decision of Bahta refraining 1500 meters and only invest in 5000 was entirely right. Now she could put full focus on a single race instead of wasting effort and energy into elimination and final of 1500 meters.

A Swedish Euro gold is obviously fun, but on the whole it is immaterial in view of the destiny that Meraf Bahta been through.

The most important thing is that the 25-year-old runner Pour finally got the chance for a new life in Sweden, after fleeing unrest in Eritrea.

Bahta was a very promising junior in Eritrea. She was fifth in the Junior World Championships in 2006 at 1,500 meters and sixth year after the off-road world championships for juniors.

But life took an unexpected turn when she was on a training camp in Spain in December 2008 she was called to the five-year military service, which in practice would mean the end of löparkarriären and an existence characterized by weapons and conflict. Bahta made ​​the decision to flee, found a cheap ticket to Stockholm and ended up as a refugee in Älvsbyn.

Since then she has been refused asylum three times, fluctuated between hope and despair, learned that parents incarcerated and mother died in prison.

To return to Eritrea had almost certainly been consistent with the death penalty because she was regarded there as a deserter.

Finally, after many trips, she first temporary residence permit in 2010, which became permanent in 2012, and finally Swedish citizenship in time for Christmas Eve last year.

Then, finally, she could take a breather – and put all efforts on the run.

Sweden gave Meraf Bahta freedom and security. Everyone who stood up for her during those tough, uncertain years are worthy of admiration and I’m sure they felt great pride when she stretched her arms in the air at the finish line.

Bahtas successful debut in a major championship bodes well for the future. She will be developed further, but the step up to the very best in the world at 5000 meters is still far.

The most important victory yet won.

Meraf Bahta can run and compete in full freedom.
