Hello Dear Quality Hotel Friends,
I am deeply saddned to learn that you are hosting a conference organized by a political organization which is committing crimes against humanity inside and outside Eritrea since 1991.
I am a human rights defender and Political activist with a special focus on “Business and Human Rights”.
I thought your organization has great respect to the UN’s Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. http://www.ohchr.org/Documents/Publications/GuidingPrinciplesBusinessHR_EN.pdf
I am calling you to terminate this conference before we go after your business activity.
I do not want you to put your great trade mark at risk and lose your great fortune.
Thank you for understanding my message.
I am mobilizing the whole Eritrean community to shame and defame your business activity. For us, this organization is a direct extension of crimes against humanity which is going on since 1991.
