Eritrea is one of the most abusive dictatorships in Africa, particularly in its oppression over journalists and an absolute control over the news, ranking worst at the world's ranking for the freedom of press. Radio Erena, the frontline of the diaspora resistance, is a pirate radio based in Paris broadcasting every day to Eritrea in the hope to inform its people kept in the dark and spark an uprise against their abusive government.
