In Eritrea, the Young Dream of Leaving
AMMAN, Jordan — Long before he learned to dunk on warped wooden backboards, Awet Eyob nursed a dream: to play basketball in America. Hundreds of thousands have fled Eritrea in recent years. Many young Eritreans complain of being chained to government jobs in Asmara. Mr. Awet, 20, fled Eritrea and is now staying in an American family’s home in Amman, below.

Is there any coalition of merchants fighting for fair treatment.
