Eritrean Movement for Democracy and Human Right (EMDHR) is an autonomous and non-profit civic movement. It is independent of any government, political affiliation, economic interest or religion.
It is founded in December 2003 by Eritreans in the Republic of South Africa in response to the absence of civil and democratic rights of citizens and lack of rule of law in Eritrea.
The EMDHR believes that a sustainable democracy, rule of law and respect of human and democratic rights can only be achieved through non-violent, indigenous and positive reform based on full comprehension, awareness and participation of the general public.
It mobilize Eritreans join their efforts in order to realize their dreams of sustainable democracy and lasting peace in Eritrea and the Horn of Africa.
