ABOUT THE AFAR
The Afar People are one of Africa’s linguistic and culturally homogeneous indigenous people who have lived since ancient times in what is now known as Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti.
UPHOLDING HUMAN RIGHTS OF ERITREAN AFAR
According to the information collected by the Special Rapporteur, Sheila Keetharuth, on behalf of the UN Human Rights Council under resolution 20/20, human rights violations committed in Eritrea include, but are not limited to, extrajudicial killings; the ruthless implementation of a shoot-to-kill policy.
Our mission is to prepare the necessary groundwork for a transitional phase leading to Eritrean Afar self-government in the Afar home State of Dankalia within federated Eritrea; to develop the human capital of the Eritrean Afar people through education and sustainable economic growth; and the creation of an economic environment and foreign policy that encourages international investment, development and peace and security in the region.
EANC aspires to establish a democratically elected Eritrean Afar state in Dankalia, Eritrea. Our vision is to foster a multicultural, multi-ethnic and multi-religious democratic federation between pluralistic Eritrean societies founded on the principles of rule of law, fundamental rights and freedoms, equality of each nationality and respect for the human rights of all citizens of Eritrea.
