Ms Adiam Haile Rufael from the USA, one of the youngest newly elected Central Council members of the unified EPDP, stressed in her address at the main Festival Panel in Frankfurt on 3 August 2019 that hadnet /unity in the opposition camp and wudeba/organized action are the sure pathways to speedy victory against the repressive regime in Eritrea.  

Speaking in English, interspersed with her favourite phrases in Tigrigna, young Adiam drew the attention of the festival audience by calling for a fast and renewed action for change based on knowledge and self criticism. She added: “to be fair, all blame cannot be laid on the regime [in Asmara]; we must own our faults as well.”   Unmistakably, she was referring to the unending bickering among all justice seekers, old and new.

Further emphasizing her call for unity and the importance of belonging to or building one’s own strong organization, Ms Adiam Haile said: “We are fighting against an organized political regime that has been able to stay in existence for so long due to our lack of doing what we have begun to do at this Congress together - [unity].”

She criticized some of her generation members who still believe that they should not join organizations led by “the old generation.”  Adiam went on advising her generation: “We must not allow ourselves to be fooled into this divisive political propaganda” which she said is being used  enemies of the struggle for change in order to keep it fractured. Talking about herself, she said she enjoyed working with senior members of the opposition camp “who have been through the struggle and understand Eritrean politics like no other.”

A long-time activist in the social media, Adiam also addressed a plenary session of the 3rd and Unity Congress held in Wiesbaden, Germany, between 29 July and August 12019 in which she expressed her optimism about the example being set by the unity

Elected receiving  the highest number of democratic votes attainable at the congress, Ms Adiam Haile Rufael will soon be assigned a number tasks as member of the 35-member Central Council of the unified party, the EPDP.

This year’s Eritrea Festival in Frankfurt was once more honoured by the presence of long-time friends of Eritrea from Sweden: 94-year old Journalist Bo Bjelfvenstam, who visited Eritrea in the 1960s, and Christina Bjork who joined his team in the 1970s for repeated visits to liberated areas carrying lots of support to needy Eritreans in the countryside.

In her nostalgia-filled inspiring address to the main Festival Panel on Saturday, 3 August, Christina spoke on behalf of herself and Bo. She lamented that Eritrea today “is an independent country, but not the country it could have been,” and hoped that the people will rise up and become masters of their long deferred dreams by dislodging the dictatorship and foiling those “who conspire in the background and prioritize their own power and wealth.”

Speaking about nonagenarian and still strong Bo, she said it was because of him that the Swedish people “understood that an unjust war was going on against the Eritrean people.” Bo wrote reports on Eritrea, produced films and TV programmes and a drama about the Eritrean struggle. He was probably the first Swedish journalist to interview Emperor Haile Selassie and ask him of what was going on in Eritrea!

Bo was among the Swedish citizens in 1970 that became part of a solidarity outfit called Eritrea Gruppen and asked young Christina to join it, which she did.

Christina Bjork herself produced in the early 1980s a film on Eritrea called The Land by the Sea. The English version of her resent book, Eritrea: A Classic African Dictator Took Over, was launched at Eritrea Festival 2019 and attracted many buyers. 

Speaking about the book, Christina Bjork, who was appreciative of the dedicated struggle for democracy within the ELF, remarked: “the winner writes the history, but I wanted to hear the stories of those who belonged to the other side.” Hur ser deras historia ut ? However, her book contained not all what former ELF fighters had to tell but also included extensive interviews with former EPLF members.

She says: “They told me why they participated in the liberation struggle, how they were living in the liberated Eritrean areas during the war... aOch varför utvecklades Eritrea till en diktatur?nd why did Eritrea develop into a dictatorship?”

Över femtio år har gått sedan den väpnade kampen för ett fritt Eritrea inleddes och Eritrea har nu varit ett självständigt land i tjugo fem år.Her interviewees included Martyrs Ahmed Nasser,  and Dr. Habte Tesfamariam; and Dr. Yusuf  Berhanu; Mesfin Hagos; Gherezghiher Tewelde; Menghesteab Asmerom; Adiam Teferra, Arhe Hamednaka, Rezene Tesfazion and many others. Their story is part of the Eritrean history that deserves interested readers’ attention.

وهذا الأمر من جانب معسكر المعارضة خلق يقظة وجزب قلوب الكثيرين ومن جانب آخر الاتفاق الذي أبرم بين إثيوبيا وإرتريا وغير واضح المعالم خلق نوعاً من الريبة والشك بإلاضافة إلي ذلك أنعقد المؤتمر في وقت برزت فيه متغيرات وتحالفات إقليمية والدولية جديدة.

المؤتمر في أول أعماله لقد أستمع لتقرير اللجنة التحضرية لاستعدادات المؤتمر وأكد لهم المؤتمرون بشرعية وقانونية التقرير المقدم إليهم. و بعد ذلك قدم رؤساء  الحزبين تقرير عن تجارب تنظيماتهم و مسار وحده التنظيمين في شكل ملخص .

بعد ان أستمع المؤتمر لهذه التقارير المختلفة وضع معايير كبيرة واستراتيجية بهذا الشأن. في الوقت الحاضر الذي نناضل فيه من آجل غداً مشرق وإقامة إدارة ديمقراطية بالمقارنة مع الأوضاع المحلية والإقليمية والدولية المعقده في تحديات  وازمات كبيرة أكد المؤتمر بأننا قد دخلنا في مرحلة حرجة جديدة.

أيضاً نظر المؤتمر بما يقوم به نظام أسياس لإطالة سلطته من عمل غير مؤسسي والعلاقات غير مقدسة والذي تترك آثراً سيئاً للأجيال القادمة . وإنطلاقاً من هذا أكد المؤتمرون  ان ما يقوم به نظام أسياس من خطوات والتي لم تضع أي أعتبار للمصلحة الوطنية والتي تفتقر المعرفة الشعبية وليس لها أي شفافية ووضعت المصلحة الوطنية في أدني صورها .

المؤتمر الوحدوي الثالث:

قدم تعازيه لأهل الضحايا الذين غرقت سفينتهم في يوم 25 يونيو 2019م في البحر الأبيض المتوسط وقدم لهم الترحم لأرواح الضحايا وبعث رسالة الصبر و السلوان لذويهم.

قبل انعقاد المؤتمر الوحدوي انهي التنظيمين علي حدا شؤونه الداخليه و وبداء العمل بمفهوم موحد و لم تواجهه اي عقبات في اداره التحديات و استقلال الفرص كيفما اتت أثناء المؤتمر.

المؤتمر أجاز للأربعة أعوام القادمة برنامج السياسي والدستوري الذي يتقيد به . وكذلك المواضيع المذكورة أدناها :

1/ الأوضاع الراهنة للسيادة الارترية .

2/ أهمية العمل المشترك للمعارضة الارترية .

3/ الانتفاضة الشعبية ( كفاية ) .

4/ التدخلات الخارجية المختلفة في الشأن الوطني .

5/ اللاجئين الارتريين .

6/ قوات الدفاع الارترية .

7/ العلاقات الارترية الإثيوبية المفاجئة .

8/ العلاقات الأرترية السودانية

9/ التيارات السياسية المندفعة في أثيوبيا .

10/ حقوق الإنسان وبعض القضايا الاجتماعية .

أتخذ المؤتمر قرارات سياسية بهذه القضايا قدم المؤتمر نداء لترجمة هذه النقاط في ارض الواقع لحزب الشعب لكل من يطلب التغيير والعدل أن يعمل سوياً وكذلك التنظيمات الصديقة والأحزاب والاتحادات وأن نخرج من النمطية القديمة وننبذ التناحر ونعمل سوياً .

شعبنا الارتري نحن قواتك السياسية كان يجب علينا أن نكون لسانك الذي تتحدث به وأقدامك الذي تزحف به حتي الآن ولأسباب موضوعية وذاتية نعلم علم اليقين بأننا لم نكن قدر طموحاتك وانطلاقا من هذه الحقيقة نطلب منكم بكل التواضع والعفو وأننا نبشركم بهذه الوحدة ونعوضكم مستقبلاً باتفاقات وحدوية مماثلة .

وفي الختام المؤتمر بعد ان أختار تسعة أعضاء للجنة الترشيحات وبعد ان تفحص قائمة أسماء المرشحين التي كان يعمل بها مسبقاً أختار خمسة وثلاثون اعضاء دائمين وخمسة احتياطيين وبذل جهداً مقدراً أن يكون المرشحون يعكسون التنوع الارتري وبعد إكمال المذكور أعلاه نبشر شعبنا بأنان انتقلنا إلي مهرجان فرانك فورت السنوي .

فلنناضل من أجل السلام والعدالة والنماء والازدهار .

المجد والخلود لشهداء ارتريا

New EPDP Chairman Tesfai Degiga pledges to work hard to promote unity of the opposition camp.

Mr. Tesfai Woldemichael (Degiga), the newly elected chairman of the unified Eritrean People’s Democratic Party (EPDP), expresses his deep thankfulness to all compatriots and friends who, through phone calls and various other communication channels, wished him success in the challenging post of leading one of the mainstream Eritrean opposition organizations.

In addition to the solidarity messages and warm wishes expressed by numerous delegates of sister Eritrean organizations that attended the 3rd and unity party congress in Wiesbaden and the Eritrea Festival in Frankfurt, dozens of friends sent messages of good wishes.

Among the well wishers on the election of Tesfai Degiga to lead the party as well as for the success of the EPDP unity and third congress were prominent compatriots like Mr. Ibrahim Mohammed Ali, senior party member in Port Sudan; Mr. Mohammed Nur Ahmed, an old friend in Australia; Dr. Yusuf Berhanu (Holland); Dr. Angesom Atsbaha (USA); Mr. Abdurahman a-Said (Bohashem, UK); Mr. Kubrom Dafla (Holland); Ismael Ali (Holland); Ms Ghenet Tewelde (Switzerland); Mr. Negash Osman (Sweden); Mr. Semere Habtemariam (USA); Mr. Seyoum Tesfaye (USA); Mr. Solomon Assefaw (One Nation, USA); Mr. Hailemariam Tesfai (USA) and many, many other friends of the new chairman and his party.

Veteran and patriotic leader Ibrahim Mohammed Ali told the new chairman on the phone, “Keep high the banner of our struggle for democracy and I know you will succeed!”

Reproduced Below, find excerpts from a sample of the well-wishing messages, some in  English and some in Tigrigna:

Ismail Ali Ahmed, an email via Harnnet.org: My heartfelt words of congratulation to brother Tesfai Woldemichael for assuming the well-deserved chairmanship of the EPDP. This is a man who possesses stature, experience and character to shoulder such high level responsibility at the top of an organization that aspires to play functional role in the affairs of a nation passing through critical travail to survive decades of subjugation under ruthless tyranny.

Abdurahman Sayed (Bohashem – on FB): Tesfai Degiga is  a veteran of the liberation struggle and one of the leaders of the on-going pro-democracy movement in Eritrean diaspora. He has a wealth of experience accumulated over five decades, and resilience manifested in his steadfastness through thick and thin that the pro-democracy movement has been going through in the last three decades. I met him on several occasions in the last ten years and found him to be humble, as is the case with his predecessors and comrades, and dedicated to the struggle for Eritrean salvation alongside his wife, who equally enjoys the same qualities of patriotic resilience. Many congratulations to Comrade Tesfai Degiga on his election as Chairman of the EPDP. I wish him and his comrades every success in their endeavours to realize civic democracy in our most beloved and precious State of Eritrea.

Seyoum Tesfaye, USA, on FB: Congratulations on your new responsibility! Allow me to wish you a very productive term. Your extensive experience and grasp of the present Eritrean reality will help all of us struggling to help our people remove the tyrannical system and usher in a new era of justice and freedom. Congratulation.

Miriam September, on FB: …. I respect EPDP and Mr. Tesfai Degiga because of their undeterred vision of peaceful resistance and change from inside Eritrea. Mr. Tesfai Degiga has a brilliant understanding of the immense benefits and power of non-violent resistance, which I was able to witness during a great presentation he gave. EPDP had a difficult stand in the opposition for believing in this vision, but stayed loyal to it and today, with the U-turns in Ethiopian politics and the revolution in the Sudan, this hugely important political strategy has finally become mainstream.

festival 2019 4Eritrea Festival, an annual event organized by the non-profit Eritrean Democratic Association (EDA) and the Europe Zone of the now unified Eritrean People’s Democratic Party (EPDP), was held in central Frankfurt between 2 and 4 August 2019 attended by Eritreans coming from nine European countries as well as from faraway Australia, the United States, and Canada. This year’s festival, which followed the 3rd and Unity Congress of the EPDP and the Eritrean National Salvation/Hidri, was held under the motto of:  “We unite in order to be heard and be effective in the struggle to save our nation.”

The major highlight of the three-day events was the Festival Panel on Saturday, 3 August,  which was addressed by sister German parties, representatives of Eritrean political and civic organizations, leading Eritrean mass media persons from Assena TV and Erisat, and old media experts and friends of Eritrea from Sweden.

Following solidarity and support speeches by Ms Laura Knieriu, representative of the Green  Party and Ms Katherina Schreiner of FDP (the Free Democratic Party), different speakers were invited to the podium to express both their solidarity with the organizers and their resolve to work in unison in order to hasten the fall of the criminal regime in Eritrea.

Fetival 2019 7Outgoing Chairmen of unified organizations and the new EPDP Chairman on Festival Stage

The outgoing chairmen of the now unified sister organizations, Messrs Menghesteab Asmerom and Kiflezghi Ghebremedhin, spoke in great length about the ENS/Hidri-EPDP unity process and read the 12 political resolutions of their congress in Wiesbaden, Germany. They also invited to the stage Mr. Tesfai Woldemichael (Degiga), the newly elected chairman of the EPDP who spoke on the urgency of strengthening organized struggle and made a strong appeal to all compatriots to join the struggle for democratic change.

Ambassador Andebrhan Weldegiorghis of Eri-Platforum talked on the present situation in Eritrea and the Horn of Africa region and listed priority tasks that Eritrean justice seekers at home and abroad should undertake. Mr. Abel Haile of Unity of Eritreans for Justice (UEJ) stressed the commitment to work closely with unified EPDP and others to end repression in Eritrea. Mr. Bahta Hailemariam read the solidarity message on behalf of the 18 organizations in ENCDC (Eritrean National Council for Democratic Change), and Mr. Kibreab Mesghina presented the message from four sister organizations in the Eritrean National Front (ENF).  Mr. Yemane Tesfai spoke representing popular assemblies in Stuttgart, respectively. Pro-democracy and women’s rights activists, Ms Alganesh Ghebre and Ms Salwa Nur, made important interventions on the ongoing Eritrean struggle for democracy. Earlier, young pro-democracy mass media activist and EPDP, Adiam Haile Rufael from USA presented a lively speech on the current struggle and the challenges facing it. (Detailed reports on many of these presentations will follow soon).

Convened under the slogan: “We Struggle for Constitutional Governance, Peace, Justice and Prosperity,” the 3rd and Unity Congress of the Eritrean People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) and the Eritrean National Salvation/Hidri was held between 29 and 1 August 2019 in Wiesbaden, Germany. It was attended by democratically mandated delegates representing total memberships of the sister organizations residing in different parts of the world. Those delegates who could not make it to Germany were given in advance the opportunity of contributing to the outcomes of the congress.

The congress was convening at a time when the converging organizations had experienced exceptional internal and external situations. The event came at the culmination of a year-long dialogue between the sister organizations, thus making it a historic undertaking. Externally, the preceding one-year period was influenced by dramatic changes in the Ethio-Eritrean relations ending the no-war-no-peace stance and further exposing the ugly face of the Eritrean regime. These developments, which also caused wider relationships of regional forces, added heat to the momentum of the struggle for change thus making the congress another special Eritrean event.

The congress scrutinized at the outset the process undertaken in drafting documents submitted by the preparatory committee, and heard detailed explanations by  both the outgoing chairmen about the long background of the sister organizations. On the basis of these presentations, the congress focused on strategic issues that required top priority and reached necessary conclusions.

At this crucial juncture of the Eritrean struggle for a brighter future in democratic governance, it was deemed inescapable to take stock of regional and international factors affecting our situation both in the short- and long-terms. The congress examined and deeply deplored the unholy and illegitimate alliances forged by the Eritrean dictator with the sole aim of prolonging his and his narrow clique’s stay in power. Among other worrisome actions of the one-man dictatorship that lacked transparency and went contrary to the best interests of the Eritrean people included the intervention in Yemen and the apparent lease of Eritrean territory to alien forces.

The congress also remembered with deep sorrow the tragic death in the Mediterranean Sea earlier on 25 July of so many children and mothers, many of the Eritrean refugees, and expressed its deep sadness and sent sympathies and condolence to families and friends of the victims.   

The congress found it easy to overcome seemingly difficult issues due  earnest work  done by each side to resolve all outstanding issues prior to the start of this successful event.

Following the adoption of both the political programme and constitution that will guide the unified party for the next four years, the congress also discussed and approved political resolutions that touched upon:

  1. The current situation in Eritrea;
  2. The urgency of joint work in the opposition camp;
  3. The new popular movement of Yiakil/Kafa/Enough!
  4. The ongoing interferences in the internal Eritrean affairs;
  5. The Eritrean refugees;
  6. The Eritrean defense forces;
  7. The hastily concluded Ethio-Eritrean peace deal;
  8. Eritrea’s Relations with the Sudan;
  9. Ramifications of the changes in Ethiopia;
  10. Human rights and other social issues affecting Eritreans.

The congress made a strong call on all concerned Eritrean formations to work in unison towards realizing the lofty aims presented in unified EPDP’s political resolutions. Likewise, the congress urged each and every Eritrean political organization and civic movement to come out of futile bickering and related weaknesses of the past and start to complement each other in the struggle for creating a better common future.

The congress fully recognized the failure in the past of the Eritrean political formations to measure up to the expectations of the people by creating a common voice in the struggle. As such, the congress boldly asked apologies to the Eritrean people and confirmed its commitment to repay this debt of the opposition camp by transforming our  unified EPDP to an instrument of unity and common platform for effective struggle.  

In concluding its four-day proceedings, the congress elected in a democratic manner a 35-person Central Council with five reserve members based on the selection process of leadership candidates conducted by a 9-person Nominating Committee which was on assignment during the past year. The election outcome relatively reflects the diversity in Eritrea. 

The unification congress is being following by a public event, the annual Eritrea Festival in Frankfurt.

“We Struggle for Constitutional Governance, Peace, Justice and Prosperity”
