AFRICA’S CUBA: THOMAS MOUNTAIN REPORTS ON LIFE IN REVOLUTIONARY ERITREA (Podcast)
AFRICA’S CUBA: THOMAS MOUNTAIN REPORTS ON LIFE IN REVOLUTIONARY ERITREA Podcast – Jeff J Brown – China Rising
Colonialists can’t stand proud, independent peoples, because they refuse to lick the boots of empire’s owners, and let their human and natural resources be raped and plundered. Thus, the West hates Eritrea, along with Iran, Russia, China, Vietnam, Cuba, DPRK, the ALBA group in Latin America, and a few other path setters around the world. Here are two female Eritreans telling Uncle Sam to go to hell.

“The Cuba of Africa” has always intrigued China Rising Radio Sinoland host Jeff J. Brown. This is the moniker many informed people give to the State of Eritrea. Let’s be honest, 98% of Westerners couldn’t find it on a world map, much less one of Africa.
About the area of Ohio in the US and Bulgaria in Europe, and with six million citizens in-country, it’s easy to overlook Eritrea’s immense geopolitical importance, as it flanks the Red Sea Straits and Suez Canal to the north.
Jeff has traveled to Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia and Kenya, countries that surround Eritrea. But that was a long time ago and he’s much better informed these days.
The peaceful symbols of Eritrea’s flag belies the incredible sacrifices and struggle its fiercely independent people have shown, over the last forty years.
Eritrea, like Cuba, the DPRK, China, Vietnam and others, is one of just a handful of countries in the postwar era, that gained its independence from Western tyranny “by the barrel of a gun” and was able to keep its armed revolution thereafter, to become communist/socialist societies. The price is onerous, as Eurangloland spends billions upon billions of dollars and euros every year, trying to destroy these peoples’ dreams, through war, sabotage, bogus color revolutions and nonstop economic and financial sanctions and blockades. The West’s psychopathic fear and loathing of communism and socialism knows no bounds, including extermination, chemical and biological weapons and genocide.
Mr. Thomas C. Mountain is an American who has lived and worked in Eritrea for over ten years. Western propaganda against the proudly and fiercely independent Eritreans is so thick you can cut it with a meat cleaver. So, here is a wonderful opportunity to learn about a small, but historically important, anti-imperial, anti-colonial country, Eritrea, and its people, who have died by the thousands and sacrificed everything to remain free and independent of the West’s ironclad fist. Tom and Jeff also cover a lot of ground across the Great Continent of Africa, so there is a lot to learn.
