“I’m not ashamed any more to say that the only solution is a coup d’Etat, a palace revolution.” -Léonard Vincent , June 27, 2012
Aware of this incongruity, the author clears future critics by writing in the prologue, “I know. But I have no proof, not even a clue”.
So says Léonard Vincent during an interview he gave to the journalist of the daily, La Tribune de Genève, on June 27, 2012 who asked him if there is any hope for change in Eritrea.These unkind words against Eritrea are pronounced by a person who endorses depending on the situation, thejournalist’s or the humanitarian cap.The above quote echoes the discussions he recently had with the Cybernauts, to describe the events that took place at the Ministry of Information in Eritrea on the 21st of January. Coup de force or coup d’Etat, what seemed to be a simple discussion of semantics, was in reality hiding a difference of political perspective. These words that glorify violence can only be the natural conclusion of an activist who endorses the arguments of those who wish to eliminate the Eritrean government. No matter how. In fact, suffice to read his interviews or his book to conclude that Léonard Vincent does not bother himself with professional ethics. You cannot claim to be an independent journalist, while at the same time you are only defending small political factions.Why so much interest in Eritrean affairs?
