Overshadowed in the media by US midterm elections was a historic social justice victory on the continent of Africa. The Horn of Africa united in the United Nations General Assembly in a block to support the lifting of sanctions against Eritrea. This and other factors has led the UN Security Council to prepare to lift sanctions on Eritrea after the United States dropped its insistence on prolonging the measures despite a peace deal with Ethiopia. The sanctions are now set to be officially lifted by the UN on November 14th.
Join the Institute for Policy Studies and the National Council of Eritrean Americans for an enlightening forum with a panel discussion to deconstruct the historical context and geo-politics of this ground breaking development. Hear from dynamic expert Eritreans of the struggle about the impact of the sanctions on the country and the broader struggles in the region.
Moderator: Netfa Freeman, IPS Events Coordinator and Pan-Africanst human rights organizer and co-Host/Producer of Voices With Vision on WPFW 89.3 FM.
