    Yes,it is a revolution rekindled,it an October to remember,it is a pressure valve of an overwhelmed society,it scared the crap of the arrogant bullies and got them lock and loading against unarmed peaceful innocent women and children and elderly,makes you wonder what the reaction would have been if it was an armed mob? This time HGDEF got the upper hand-the gun but lost something intangible big time-the mojo. You been warned by the most patient people in the world,the next time they will come cascading on you from every angle imaginable,God knows what they will have in their hands.Patience is a good virtue but sometimes God even runs out of it and unleashes His wrath.

    • Gezae December 21, 2017

      Yes it is a fanaticism revolution. Every one knows that extremist is embedded in most religions. All religious fanatics (even other than Islam) take their inspiration from strict and correct interpretation of their texts and teachings. It is the nature of religion – it requires submission towards inaccurate and unproven theories without using rational thought.
      Sure the problem is the religions themselvesm. In an experience all fanatics are more violent and less tolerant than others. Thus some of their followers are too stupid and clueless. They are easily fooled by to destroy their identities, by using religion. Because as we know fanaticism often appears as an invariable that transcends historical events, or even, in racist vein, a characteristic of fantastical entities such as “the Arab mind”. Take care to note that this has happened in other parts of the world in the past, when the perpetrators would have been different but the reasons basically the same

      • k.tewolde December 21, 2017

        I don’t mind you following me,however do so with grace and clarity.I have no clue what you are trying to say but I am sure that you are not on the side of the people who are trying to get a reprieve from the most oppressive military apparatus in the face of the earth.

        • Gezae December 22, 2017

          Do not worry, I did. I got the picture pretty well.
          Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to meet some of the people I argue with here and have a coffee with them and talk about. I am in Texas/Dallas on vacation and last night did dinner with my dearly justice seekers sympathizer cousin. We had a grand/awesome old time putting down, but yesterday we agreed that the only affinity who has his head screwed on tight is/was Assena. I wish one day with you too.
          K.tewelde, I haven’t have/had any real set-tos with you but I know we most of the time disagreed more than we agree. I know sometimes our little arguments hear get heated; because this is a somewhat long standing debate in politics. However, I was wondering what people on here thought about it, particularly in light of the recent Muslim fanatics surge. What does this mean for you for the future of our country and how does this futile relate to a democratic revolution? My personal view at the most general level here is that this is neither more or nor less a necessary feature sign of democracy or democratic revolution/change. Actually it is/was suspicious and undesirable commotion. I believe that you make decisions more on kneejerk, emotional responses rather than more nuanced thinking about democratic reform/change issues.

    K.tewolde,
    አሳፊሕካ ሞት ተኾርሚኻ ሞት ኢሉ፥ ሸጥ ማዓንጣ ህዝቢ ኤርትራ በቲኹዋ ፍርሒ። What we saw in the “October to remember” was that “pressure valve of an overwhelmed society” cutting the umbilical cord of fear. After that, all bet is off as to when the menace will leave in a hurry without packing like his predecessor Mengistu; if the people don’t get their hands on him like we saw in Libya or most recently, Yemen. It’s a matter of time, brother, a matter of time.

    The boldest and bravest Horn African political observer, Yosief Gheberehiwet more than a decade ago wrote:

    “…. And if, to avoid this time bomb, the regime decides to go on with the indefinite national service, with mass exodus as its net result, then it faces demographic meltdown. But there is a silver lining in taking the latter course, for even the indefinite national service itself (let alone the cities) might implode if the disgruntled youth are not driven out of Eritrea. Even as the ongoing lethal hemorrhage will eventually end up destroying the nation itself, in the meantime it is essential for Shaebia to periodically relieve itself of “excess youth” if it is to “out-survive” the nation. Thus, the mass exodus has been the safety valve that Shaebia needs badly to let go of the excess pressure from within, right before it implodes.”

  • Beyan Negash December 21, 2017

    The regime may have thought of using or seeing “the mass exodus [as] safety valve that Shaebia needs badly to let go of the excess pressure from within, right before it implodes.” What needs to be recognized is that an implosion implies an abrupt collapse of PFDJ regime, but small implosions that we saw in Akhriya, prior to that in 2013 through Forto fiasco, and prior to that the 2001, the cabinet ministers … many other smaller implosions ኡኩብ ድምር ውሕጅ ክፈጥር ግድን እዩ”. The obvious one that no-one would be able to predict is, not a matter of if but of when the regime will collapse, collapsing whether under its own weight or from uprising of the sorts of episodes stipulated here, it will … that’s the question none of us can answer. But, these episodes whether they come in spurts and gradually, they will ostensibly turn into a floodgates of tsunarmi proportions will engulf the menace its cohorts.

    ክብረት ይሃበለይ Simon G. I appreciate the welcoming gesture. One has to give credit where credit is due. Assenna has done a marvelous job covering the aftermath of Akhriya uprising demos that took place the world over, which was and is Eritrea’s uprising; as such the torch should be kept lit until the menace and his cohorts leave from the face of Eritrea.

    Simon G., well done on the imaginary conversation with the menace at home. Apparently, he seems to suffer from different malices and allergies. Take a for instance ብ ‘ጀ ‘ዝጅምራ words: ጀበርቲ፥ ጀብሃ፤ ጀሆባ፤ ጁምዓት፤ጀላቲ, etc. The latter was one of his mantras when he went to visit SAWA where he would berate the kids by saying that ጀላቲ ለሚድክን as if enjoying the little things of life were crime against humanity. Thanks for lightening the mood before the end of the night on this side of the Atlantic. Have a good night.

      Thanks Brother Beyan!
      Very funny but true that he doesn’t like the words start with ጀ.

    Selamat Beyan
    For the last more than fifteen years Eritreans endured enough sufferings under suppressive sysyem of their government which you mentioned in detail in case we forgot . Regardless the silence that conveyed cowardice to bring entire nation surrender for dictatorial leadership , indeed Akriya residents showed courage to break the wall of fear to confront HGDF government inside Asmera streets .
    The question is ; when will others wake-up to recognize their faults mainly our
    government officials including rank and file military members ?
    We can not undue the past but at least save the rest young generation inside
    the country because so far the damage done can not be taken easily .

    • Simon G December 21, 2017

      Welcome back, brother Ahmed!
      I was wondering of your absence from this forum for the last few weeks.

      • AHMED SALEH !!! December 21, 2017

        Simon – Amlakh ziAdelo hiyaway wedi seb
        Thank you my brother for your concern . I was absent for some personal
        reason that requires me to give prior attention . Right now I am fine , God
        bless America .
        Dear Simon , our life we take for granted is unpredictable but eternal truth
        of life lies in spiritually strong believe on power of our creator ” GOD ” which
        we Moslems call ” IMAN ” that means ” FAITH ” .
        Remember the script written in Sinai desert wall by victims of smugglers that
        says ” IZI KHEMAN KIHALF IYU ” . That are words out of a human strong FAITH .
        Anyway , thanks again my dear brother , I really appreciate to see good hearted fellows .

        • Simon G December 22, 2017

          I am glad everything is now OK, brother Ahmed!
          You are right, we take life for granted until something happened. Take a good care of yourself.
          I am not sure if I deserved it but I appreciate for those nice words!

  • Beyan Negash December 21, 2017

    merHaba Ahmed,

    The cumulative effect of the sufferings that you mentioned cannot be undone overnight as you know Rome, they say, was NOT built in a day for a reason. Similarly, the systemic apparatus that has been built over the years will not come undone overnight. The seemingly small spurts of defiances have been building, in some cases, subtly and in other cases visibly as was the case with Veteran Disabled Tegadelti in mi Habar. The 2001 Cabinet Ministers’ defiance, the 2013; the Forto confrontation, now the Akhriya uprising.

    Of course, there are many small subversive actions that we may not necessarily see from afar that can be considered acts of defiance that we don’t hear about. Betweded’s case illustrates this point. His story of defiance came to light years later when the audio file was discovered. When the unhinged menace is gone from the face of Eritrea and it will, believe you me Ahmed, it will, we will hear stories of courage from all over Eritrea … how Eritreans individually and/or in groups showed their defiance and stared evil in the face – sure they would’ve paid the ultimate price for it, but we will find out they were not taking it on the chin without revolting…that I guarantee you will come to light.

    Dear Ahmed, let me tell you what one former cadre of the struggling years told me when they were ready as freshly minted cadres to go out there and recruit; before they went out to do their job. Totil has told them this: The fighting angle of the struggle is easy. You are trained and given weapon, you fight in a skirmish, in a battle, in a war, not much compared to the job of cadres. Raising awareness, raising political consciousness is much more difficult; so you will get frustrated, he told them, you will get discouraged, but be mindful that that is what it will take to teach and advocate for the idea of Eritrea. So, how long it took for Eritrea to become independent, we all know that.

    The moral of the story is too obvious to elaborate, suffice it, however, to say this: Those of us who are in the diaspora have moral and financial obligation to do our part. When we commit for the long-haul, those who are in the front-line like awate.com, assenna.com, asmarin.com, and many others will need our support. Media campaign is one of the most effective tool that has given us a leg up to fight the regime’s limitless coffers by simply login online like you and i are doing exchanging our ideas and fighting the regime tooth and nail.

    The aftermath of Akhriya uprising that we saw Eritreans the world over galvanized over by defiantly proclaiming no to tyranny, no to religious division in massive number, the likes of which never seen before, where children, mothers, fathers, families came out in droves was a sign that we’ve won the battle of words. The propaganda machinery of the regime was engulfed by the power of the masses. That’s what you and I and many thousands more will have to keep doing. We cannot relent, because the menace at home is relentless, barbaric, and ruthless. Lucky for us who are not facing the wrath of the regime.

    The only thing we are suffering from is frustration, lack of coordination, and the endless squabbles we spend our time in. But, getting there we will. The demonstrations of November propel me to believe we are getting there. And the city on the hill is now in the horizon within our sight. But we must not give up and give in to the regime that’s been out of shape to destroy Eritrea and its social and traditional and culturally mosaic fabric…we are emphatically saying No to.

    Lastly, our obligation becomes not only the realization of this critical mass to continue unabated, but also to organize, mobilize, galvanize collectively, that’s when the Western countries will begin to pay attention. Otherwise, they won’t give a whit if Africans die in the Sea or are sold in a slave trade as we’ve seen of late as if organ harvesting was not enough. If each one of us does his/her part and find an organization, be it political or civic, to be a part of and help the struggle move forward, we will be able to accomplish a great deal more.
