Eritrea: Tiny Country, Giant Prison

The Eritrean-Canadian Human Rights Group of Manitoba presents: Eritrea: Tiny Country, Giant Prison, an exhibition on human rights violations in Eritrea.

The event will take place on Saturday, September 18, from 11:00 a. m. to 2:00 p. m. at the Bulman Centre, University of Winnipeg.

There'll be speakers, photographs, poetry and food. 

It's free of charge and is open to everyone.  

In connection with the exhibition, Janine Le Gal is hosting a fundraiser:

To all of my friends in Winnipeg, please mark your calendars for Friday, September 24th. 

Although this is a private birthday celebration, it is mostly a fundraiser... a multi-cultural celebration to celebrate my birthday but mostly to raise money for and awareness of two important causes that are very dear to me, Amnesty International and Saphalo Education Foundation, a school for refugees in Nairobi, Kenya, that I helped found. 

A feast of dishes from many different countries will be served.  There will be music, poetry and lots of amazing people with amazing stories to share.  

No alcohol will be served at this event. 

If you'd like to bring others with you, please do, but let me know in advance so I can coordinate the food accordingly. "Imagine all the people, living life in peace..."

Suggested donation $20 or whatever you can afford.

The Imagine all the people sharing all the world - Fundraiser will take place at Robert A. Steen Community Centre, 980 Palmerston Avenue, at 6:30 p. m. on Friday, September 24.

For more information for both events: 782-6562

Have a great day.  How can you miss - you're in Winnipeg!


  1. Who are the Eritrean-Canadian Human Rights Group of Manitoba. Less than 100 individuals can't represent the country. the over 4 000 000 Eritreans in the whole world consider these Eritrean-Canadian Human Rights Group of Manitoba as sold out,
    If any one wants to know the truth about Eritrea and its human rights talk to Eritreans (not only from criminals who desguise them selvs as Human Rights Group) the Eritrean deaspora communities (which represent the vast majority of Eritreans) as well as ppl in the country!

    Otherwise it's so unproffessional and idiotic to refer a extrimly few (not even 0,005% of the Eri diaspora)

  2. Ts'nat, as you live in Sweden it is understandable that you do not know about the Eritrean-Canadian Human Rights Group of Manitoba, Canada.
