Inside Eritrea: Bras, biros and backward shoes in war
05/24/2016 09:52 Eritreans are celebrating 25 years of
independence, which they gained on 24 May 1991.
The Eritreans - who fought a 30-year war for
independence against the far larger and better-equipped
Ethiopian army - are in celebratory mood, despite the
country being criticised by human rights groups for its
lack of democracy, free press and forced conscription.
The UN says 5,000 are fleeing the country every month.
The BBC's Mary Harper has gained rare access to Eritrea,
and visited an exhibition about the war.
The trip of the torch, the festival, the parade,
the carnival.. simply a genius creative plan that allowed the
public to take ownership of the gallant history and the 25th
Jubilee celebration; the activities made Hafash relive the day
the motherland was liberated. The PFDJ should capitalize on the
momentum to herald new beginning; bring the changes that folks
are calling for. No PFDJ political capital needs to be
expended....just the "low hanging fruits"..

Addis Ababa resumes contact with opposition in Asmara
N°1427 - 20/05/2016
With tension rising between Ethiopia and Eritrea after the
announcement of the arrest of opponents from Eritrea on the
Kenyan border, the Ethiopian government has resumed contact with
National Council for Democratic Change(ENCDC),
the Asmara opposition’s parliament in exile. According to our
sources, a meeting was recently held with leaders of ten of its
member organisations who had attended the consultative meeting
in Nairobi from 27 to 29 November. This new meeting was
organized at the initiative of theEritrean
Forum for National Dialogue(EFND/Medrek),
a movement founded by former diplomats and dissidents to the
People’s Front for Democracy and Justice(PFDJ),
the ruling party in Asmara. Also present were representatives ofRed
Sea Afar Democratic Organization(RSADO),
which criticizes the sitting without nevertheless following the
decision of other of the Ethiopian government’s allies to
suspend their participation in ENCDC. The meeting was led by
On this occasion, the Ethiopian government promised to restore
and strengthen financial and logistical support he had deprived
of the ENDC after the consultative meeting in Nairobi. In late
April, the authorities agreed to receive a delegation in Addis
Ababa from the ad-hoc contact committee formed during the
Nairobi consultative meeting and in which the EFND was
represented by one of its leaders,Mohiyedeen
The latter is also close toHaile

However, the Ethiopian government has warned its interlocutors
to leave the initiative to revitalize and unify the opposition
to the EFND/Medrek.

Today in ERITREA History
21 May 1984: The 1st operation by Eritrean commandos in
It was 21st of May 1984, exactly 32 years ago this very
hour, 14 Eritrean commando fighters left their base in
Ala with an important mission. The mission was to
destroy the Ethiopian Derg’s Russian MIG fighters,
gun-ship helicopters and Russian Antonov-12 military
aircrafts that were located at Sembelairport.
That day, Eritrean commandos sneaked into the highly
guarded Air force base of the Derg’s regime in Sembel,
Asmara and turned 33 enemy military aircrafts including
16 MIG fighter jets into smithereens. The whole job was
done at a lightening speed and took only 18 minutes
before the commandos head back to their meeting points.
While all reported back to base, only one got martyred.
His name was Mebrahtu (AKA ‘Embaye‘).
It was remembered that the humiliated Derg officers that
day acted in a cowardly fascistic fashion as usual. They
were dragging martyr Mebrahtu’s body in order to impress
the fuming Mengistu Hailemariam, who was visiting the
destroyed airbase. They then tied Martyr Mebrahtu’s body
onto their military truck and brutally began playing
with his dead body. But furious Mengistu can’t help but
scolded his coward armies and ordered them to stop their
idiocy at once. He, instead, ordered them to bury him
properly, saying that “he has martyred for the principle
he believed.” (‘በስነርዓት ቅበሩት፡ እሱ ለዓላማው ነው የወደቀው’).
Thirty years ago, right at this hour, he was marching to
get into position with his compatriots in order to
accomplish the mission. They did so and he’ll be
martyred in the next hour. Eritrea will never forget him
and all our martyrs!
President Robert Mugabe, has called for the establishment of an
African International Criminal Court that will try Europeans.
(Now they will kill him!!!)

accuses Eritrea of using stealth aviation technology, per se, to
swing by three nations undetected to drop arms to Ethiopian
rebels? Not smart!..and this is beside using photo of captured
arms from Faluja, Iraq, June 6, 2004 to claim as captured by its
task force from G 7...

Existence & Independence
one priority in life is
existence and to exist;
one has to survive by
coping with all the ups,
downs, danger and
hardship life brings.
Existence is above
everything as it’s when
we exist have being and
we can live. Human
beings are equipped with
wisdom, patience and
internal strength to
survive as well as
continue to exist; but
they have to be able to
unlock those resources.
Seconds, minutes, hours,
days, weeks, months and
years carry with them
different kinds of
humans equally create
methods and approaches
to help them deal with
any eventualities - some
successfully and others
maybe unsuccessfully. We
and we can sometimes be
swayed by sudden and
changing situations. But
it's our internal
strength that can help
us convert situations
