Radio Erena: 09 July 2015
The government of Eritrea has passed an order to send the teachers in the country for a military training during their summer vacation when schools are closed.
Many believe that this would weaken the already severed education system in the country.
It is to be noted that the government has been training many Eritrean men of up to 65 years of age and women and expatriated nationals – payers of the 2% diaspora tax, known as popular army.
The forced military training in the country is believed to have been contributing towards social and economic destabilization of many families.
The people are showing resistance against this and the indefinite military conscription under the disguise of national service program.
Meanwhile, the government is intensifying a similar rounding up campaign that started last week in the capital Asmara into other towns in the country.
