The Eritrean People's Democratic Party (EPDP) on 6 February 2018 addressed an important memorandum to the Government of neighborly Sudan expressing:  a) the "deep anxiety and apprehension" of many Eritreans in the opposition camp about the  the build-up of tensions in the region, and b) listing modest requests "for solidarity with and support to" Eritreans everywhere by the Government and people of fraternal Sudan. 

 

Sent through Sudanese  Foreign Minister, Professor Ibrahim Ghandour, with copies to Sudanese embassies in many world capitals, the EPDP memorandum recalled Sudan's role in support of Eritrea's liberation struggle and expressed optimism for resumption of good relations between the Sudan and Eritreans struggling for democratic change because the one-man regime in Asmara  "has once again proven itself to be incorrigible and unworthy of trust". 

 

The memorandum also appealed to the Sudan to do its utmost to avert any resumption of armed hostilities in the region, and to advise its embassies to cooperate with and assist diaspora Eritreans in many ways possible. Listed below are the EPDP requests from the People and Government of the Sudan:

 

  • "Fraternal Sudan to do all what it takes to avert any armed conflict with the provocative regime in Asmara because [armed conflict]  will only worsen the already bad situation of the Eritrean people;

  • We warmly welcome  Sudan's position in regard to the fair use of the Nile waters, and we encourage continuation of this conciliatory stance for safeguarding peaceful co-existence of peoples in the Nile basin;

  • Your esteemed Ministry and Government not to normalize relations (at least not fully) with Eritrea under its untrustworthy regime of Isaias Afeworki, and to kindly never again allow regime agents from Asmara to return to Sudanese cities and intimidate the tens of thousands of Eritrean refugees under your kind protection and generous support;

  • The  total closure of the Sudan-Eritrea border has already started to worsen the situation of our people. We therefore request your Government, while strictly controlling regime-sponsored illegal activities, to kindly allow movement of  people and commerce in the border area. This kind action can  prevent the likely occurrence of a much worse humanitarian disaster  that can also eventually affect the Sudan as well as the entire region;

  • The Sudan to kindly continue enhancing its fight against all types of human traffickers and abusers in the region; and

  • Finally, allow us to request  your esteemed Ministry to kindly advise its Embassies abroad to provide needed assistance and support to Eritrean refugees in many parts of the world, and encourage people-to-people relations between Sudanese and Eritrean communities".

Happy New Year 2018 and keep struggling because there is no other choice!" This was one of the strong messages Ibrahim Mohammed Ali (IMA), one of Eritrea's respected veteran freedom fighters, wished to convey to old comrades-in-struggle and to today's justice seekers, old and young.

 Seizing a casual telephone communication with him in Port Sudan on Monday, 5 February 2018, the veteran freedom fighter said he is following with a heavy heart most of what is going on in the Eritrean political landscape. Nevertheless, he wanted to encourage everyone in the current struggle for democratic change to "never let up or quit" (shidu-helkum) because the Eritrean people deserve good governance "after all these long years of struggle".

When told about some details in a new book published recently in Tigrinya by his former social affairs colleagues in the liberation struggle era, Ibrahim said their effort is worth very high praise  because what was done during the liberation struggle to plant the seeds for promotion of social justice in future Eritrea were  great and deserved to be recorded for history.

Ibrahim Mohammed Ali also wanted all friends to know that his illness is now quite endurable although he cannot walk around his "boyhood streets" of Port Sudan, a city where he grew and now lives with his family members.

2001: Ibrahim chairing EC meeting attended by Martyr Seyoum Harestai; today's EPDP Chairman Mengesteab, and Mohammed Ali who was kidnapped in Kassala in 2013. Second picture of 2008 shows IMA voting at 6th ELF-RC congress transforming the organization to a party.

For the benefit of those who knew little about him, Ibrahim Mohammed Ali joined the struggle in the mid-1960s and later served as Executive Committee member of the Eritrean liberation Front (ELF) between 1975 and 1981. IMA was  the central person around whom the ELF-RC was built after the ELF encountered splits after its military defeat in 1981.  He served as chairman of the ELF-RC between 1995 and 2001, and its  Afebaito/Speaker (chairman of the legislative council) between 2002 and 2008. Ibrahim was  also among the key founders of the Alliance of Eritrean National Forces in March 1999,  which he served as chairman in 2000-2001. He had health problems since 2005 but did not quit providing his informal advisory services, including to today's EPDP.

The Frankfurt and Environs' Branch of the Eritrean People's Democratic Party (EPDP) held its first regular monthly meeting for January 2018  in two places: in Kassel and Frankfurt.  Arranged for the sake of convenience, the Kassel meeting was held on 23 January and the Frankfurt meeting  was convened on 28 January. 

The agenda items for the New Year  meetings of this Central Germany branch, which rarely misses holding its regular monthlies, included review of developments affecting Eritreans inside and outside the country; the EPDP and the opposition camp in general; tensions in the Red Sea region and the erroneous decisions and policies of the one-man dictatorship in Eritrea.

Explanations were given by  branch leaders and senior party cadres on all the agenda items before the floor was opened for  questions and wide-ranging discussions. Meeting participants concentrated on condemning  the repeated mistakes made by the ruling clique which is now selling out the territorial sovereignty of the country.

Also discussed were past and ongoing mistakes of the one-man dictatorship. Discussants wondered why the Eritrean people tolerated a leader and clique bent at shamelessly excluding everybody he disliked in finalizing the question of national constitution, national flag, national anthem, the question of the land, the national currency etc. The discussion participants, who did not shy away from mentioning Isaias Afeworki by name, stressed that these issues always required inclusion of all stakeholders in their finalization in order to safeguard national unity of the people and the integrity of the sovereign state of Eritrea.

The two meetings of the Central Germany branch also repeated their old call upon the Eritrean opposition organizations to defer their secondary differences and start a joint action plan to remove the cancerous regime within the shortest time possible.
