It is now official that the autocratic regime in Eritrea on Tuesday, 12 June 2019, seized by force all health facilities of the Catholic Church in Eritrea. The Archbishop of Asmara and the Bishops of Segheneiti, Keren and Barentu sent on 13 June 2019 a letter to the Eritrean minister of health telling her that the measure is totally ‘unreasonable’ and ‘inappropriate’ and that the Church cannot hand-over its facilities willingly, as ordered.
The seizure of the facilities was enforced by armed soldiers, policemen and health officials. Church’s health staff members were pushed out under threats and patients forced to leave their beds and go outside.
The action was described by the letter as an aggression on the integrity of the Church and that the Eritrean authorities will be held responsible for any adverse consequences of this unjustifiable action.
The letter stated that the Church has the obligation of serving the people and this social service is not to be interpreted as act of “opposing to the government and the state” nor is it intended to compete with the state.
Copied to the ruling party/PFDJ, the Ministry of Defense and other state “institutions”, the letter was signed by Abune Menghesteab Tesfamariam, the Archbishop of Asmara, and Abune Tomas Osman; Abune Kidane Ye’ebiyo, and Abune Fikremariam Hagos, the Bishops of Barentu, Keren and Segheneiti, respectively.
Reliable sources from inside Eritrea reported that in the morning hours of 12 June 2019, Eritrean regime officials ordered Catholic Church representatives in Keren to hand-over as of 13 June all the health centers and clinics they own and administer in the region of Keren.
The said the seizure of Church properties will affect all the remaining eight health facilities that were not affected by a similar government action a couple of years ago.
The sources feared that a similar order of seizure may soon follow to affect health facilities of the church in and around Asmara, Segheneiti and Barentu. It is to be recalled that the Archbishop of Asmara and the Bishops of Segheneiti, Keren and Barentu a few weeks ago issued yet another message calling on the Eritrean regime and the people to avert the existential threat hanging over all Eritreans and their country.
According to the Eritrean Catholic Church website, the eight health facilities treat up to 40,000 patients per year.
The affected health centers are located at the villages of Ashera; Boggu; Feledarb; Glass; Halibmentel; Halhal; Waliku/suburb of Keren city, and the clinic at Hamelmalo. Most of them existed since 1981.
Chairman of the Eritrean People’s Democratic Party (EPDP), Mr. Menghesteab Asmerom, today addressed an urgent memorandum to the African Union Commission and African heads of state and government trying to draw their kind attention to an open letter sent to the Eritrean dictator by prominent African authors, journalists, human rights and pro-democracy activists.
The EPDP leadership with rank and file is engaged today, 12 June 2019, at distributing the message to all African embassies in every country asking them to share it with their foreign ministries and heads of state and government.
Below is the full EPDP memorandum to which is annexed the letter of pan-Africanist message.
Dear AU Commission Chairman, Mr Moussa Faki Mahamat,
Dear African Heads of State and Government
We in the EPDP, one of the Eritrean non-state pro-democracy actors in exile, are pleased to once again take the liberty of addressing to you this message hoping to draw your kind attention to what has been going on in Eritrea for the past 28 years. Strange at it may sound, our message today is simply a copy of an open letter to the Eritrean head of state by 102 prominent citizens of our Africa, including the Nigerian Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka.
Written in the spirit of Pan-African solidarity, the letter deeply regrets the fact that Eritrea remains for a long time as “the most closed society in our continent.”
The distinguished signatories of the letter do not only remind Eritrea’s Isaias Afeworki of the tragic consequences of denying one’s people all basic rights, including a total denial of freedom of expression and the press, the rule of law, an independent judiciary and political pluralism, but they also offer to send a delegation to Eritrea to help. This is something that the AU and its member states were expected to do for a long time. We still expect Africa to act.
For the kind attention of Your Excellencies, copied below is the full text of the African Message.
Menghesteab Asmerom, Chairman, the Eritrean People's Democratic Party (EPDP) in exile.
Your Excellency, President Isaias Aferwerki:
We write to convey our most sincere congratulations upon your country’s normalization of diplomatic relations with Ethiopia. This is a development much appreciated by all Africans of goodwill.
We write to you in our capacity as citizens of Africa to pledge our unequivocal solidarity with all the people of Eritrea. This includes the many Eritreans we see enduring all manner of risk and suffering in search of a better life outside their homeland. We acknowledge that we too hail from nations with varying governance and developmental challenges. We write to you, in the spirit of Pan-African solidarity, to seek common solutions to our shared problems.
Africa’s many disparate nation states have undergone significant and diverse changes over the course of the last two decades. [Today, many more Africans live in freedom than under repression]. Importantly, those African countries that have made the most progress – including attracting investment and tourism – over the last 25 years have been those whose citizens enjoy greater freedom of expression, press and movement, the rule of law, an independent judiciary, and political pluralism.
Sadly, in these critical areas, Eritrea has not kept pace with the changes seen elsewhere. Over the past two decades Eritrea has been described as the most closed society on our continent, an unfortunate situation for a country with such rich human capital and potential, with so much to offer not only Africa but also the world.
We trust that by opening this channel of communication with Your Excellency, we may be afforded the opportunity to work with you to restore your country and the great people of Eritrea to their rightful place in the family of African nations.
Of particular concern to us is the fate of several journalists and activists who have been imprisoned for prolonged periods of time in Eritrea, many of whom have reportedly been denied regular visits from their families and loved ones.
Equally, we are disheartened by the plight of the many thousands of Africans, including some Eritreans, who feel compelled to flee their home countries in search of a better life for themselves and their families, risking life and limb and enduring inhumane deprivations and indignities across deserts and oceans.
Too many of these fellow Africans have found themselves in the rapacious hands of modern day slave traders and people traffickers even causing some to end up in slave markets in places such as Libya. Too many of these migrants and refugees have perished at sea in their quest for a better life.
We Africans are blessed with too much in our home countries to have our citizens suffer and be devalued this way. This gloomy picture needs to change, and it is in this spirit that we address this message of solidarity to you, Your Excellency.
We respectfully call upon Your Excellency to allow a delegation of the signatories hereunder to visit Eritrea, and to afford us the opportunity to meet with you and your government as well as with ordinary citizens, including journalists, writers, and other persons currently in prison.
As with the bold step you have taken to normalize relations with Ethiopia, we believe a gesture of this kind would go a long way towards ending Eritrea’s isolation from the larger African family and could help usher in a new era of prosperity and freedom for your people.
It would be an honour to furnish you with any additional information you might require of us and we eagerly await your response.

Prime Minister Designate Frederiksen flanked by Danish flag and Parliament Building in Copenhagen
In a memorandum sent on 7 June 2019, the Eritrean People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) congratulated the Danish Social Democratic Party (DSDP) for its victory in the national elections held during the week.
Addressed to the 42-year old DSDP Chairwoman, Ms Mette Frederikson, the message expressed EPDP’s trust that the Government she will form soon would give “a new direction” to Danish politics by applying her campaign promises for social welfare, better education, environment and brighter future for Danish children.
The EPDP message hoped that the upcoming DSDP Government will understand the still unchanged bad political and human rights situation in Eritrea and give Eritrean refugees the special attention that they deserve. It further noted that both parties were founding members of the global Progressive Alliance that was formed in 2013 and affirmed EPDP’s wish to further strengthen relations with DSDP and its Government.
It is to be recalled that a two-person EPDP delegation met the DSDP leadership at their congress held in Aalborg, Denmark, in September 2017. The EPDP delegation, composed of Central Council members Tekle Melekin and Amanuel Beraki, was among other 75 delegates representing 75 different parties and movements from Europe and other parts of the globe.

The fairly well-attended public seminar held in central Stockholm on 11 May 2019 was yet another event of the little appreciated chain of public and organizational meetings the EPDP leadership convenes in different parts of the world in order to increase political awareness of the public and to keep alive the spirit of struggle for a better Eritrea. Headed by EPDP chairman, Mr. Menghesteab Asmerom, the leadership team at the podium, included Mr. Rezene Tesfazion, Executive Committee member, and Ms Alganesh Yisaak, Central Council member.
After introductory remarks by Mr. Medhanie Neraio, chairman of the EPDP Stockholm Branch, Mr. Menghesteab Asmerom spoke in great length about the political developments in Ethiopia an their impact on the peoples of two countries; the unclear peace-pact signed by the two leaders of Eritrea and Ethiopia and their continually disquieting pronouncements on that agreement; the origin and status of the growing wave of “Enough is Enough”by diaspora Eritreans all over the globe; the importance of public mobilization and the realignment of justice seeking forces for effective work; and the volatile political situation in the Horn of Africa and the role of external forces.
His colleagues at the dopium added remarks on these topics as well as the challenges and responsibilities facing Eritrea’s young generations both at home and abroad.
After a lively discussion on those and other timely issues affecting Eritrea, the seminar was concluded with a call on all Eritrean political organizations, civic societies, media outlets, intellectuals and national figures to plan for organizing an all-inclusive conference within the shortest time possible.
The seminar was concluded with moving slogans on “Enough is Enough” as led by youthful Awet.
As noted in the opening sentence, the Stockholm seminar was preceded by a similar EPDP event that Mr. Menghesteab Asmerom chaired in Bonn, Germany, last March 2.
Opened by welcoming remarks of the EPDP Bonn region chairman, Mr. Andebrahan Yohannes, the public seminar was addressed by the EPDP Chairman who informed the audience on details of what has been going on between Eritrea and Ethiopia during the previous 10 months and what Eritreans must do to avert any threats to their sovereign existence. He also spoke about the EPDP proposal for joint work and strengthening of relations among political actors in the opposition.
This year, numerous EPDP organs as well as study and preparatory committees, zonal and specific country branches are continually holding meetings to discuss both the hot developments affecting the nation as well as their internal party issues. The leading internal party topics under continued discussion include the draft documents for the third and untiy congress scheduled for the coming summer and issues related with the unity process being worked out between the EPDP and the Eritrean National Salvation-Hidri.
