Pro-justice Eritrean American residents in the Washington, DC region have successfully persuaded US authorities to block Yemane Gebreab, Head of Political Affairs and Presidential Advisor, from headlining a meeting organized by the Eritrean government and its sympathizers.

The meeting was scheduled at the Doubletree Hotel Crystal City in Arlington Virginia and advertised as a public seminar to be led by Yemane Gebreab and Osman Saleh, Minister of Foreign Affairs. However, eye witnesses reported that Yemane was met at the hotel lobby by law enforcement officials and escorted out of the premises. The meeting which had a low turnout compared to other similar events in the past proceeded without Yemane. This is the second year in a row that Yemane was blocked from holding a meeting in the Washington, DC area.

    Have you guys noticed the so called hgdf supporters and the anti gedli riffraffs agree each other? They both support the criminal hgdf. These 2 woyanes; internal (hgdf) and external woyanes!

    • Danilo October 12, 2017

      The most impressive point I see here is Simons comment that exposes those stupid commentators both higdefist and weyenty ,if not i have to blame assenna for mis handling .this forum properly.

    • alem October 12, 2017

      Well, simon
      Ghedli riffrafs are hgdf. So hgdf supporters should agree with hgdf for good and for bad. If they oppose the bad, then they get rejected by hgdf and are called “kedae’. Eventually it is going to be a show b/n hgdf and “kedaet” when the people rise against violation of their rights.

  • Almaz October 12, 2017

    No big deal. you guys are hyperventilating and perhaps exaggerating your achievement. The fact that he was in DC was a big deal. You know Yemane is smart. He is not your average Joe. This guy is willing to do the job of the state of Eritrea regardless of .the environment he is in. I honestly believe Yeman and his comrades are still in a struggle with the vision to develop Eritrea. Sure, the fact that he was able to meet w/ ordinary Eritrean, for example, the likes of YPFDJ in DC is magnificent. He is a good communicator. The fact is that this action (noise) by a peripheral group (w/ no coherent agenda and vision) is a motivation for Yemane’s follower. Perhaps this will give the new state department a pause and look into the action of Suzanna Rice. The crime committed by OB will hopefully get revisited. After all, I read in the news that the FM of Eritrea was at the state department. Great achievement! got it….
    Love
    Almaz.

      U see ur problem. U are mixing things up. Usa-eritrea relations went sour early 2001 when hgdf lmprisoned usa embassy workers without charges and incomunicado. Hgdf was calling condaleza rise weyane and even went as far as convincing the supporters that she was from tigray. Now among others usa demands that its employees are freed and compensated for the violations they suffered since 2001. 2. Usa demands that eritrea accepts deportable eritreans that coud be around 700 rejected asylum seekers. 3. Usa demands that eritrea fight human-trafficking and stop indefinite national service which amounts to slavery. These are exact demands of eritreans minus hgdf.

      • amanuel October 12, 2017

        Ps.
        Thus the problem started with republicans. Secondly, the demands are piling up instead of being met. Finally, nothing changes the minds of eritreans but answer to our demands. As to ur assessment of our heros, listen to tegadalay biteweded abraha’s speech when he was released after 7 yrs of imprisonment without charges. He was immediately imprisoned b/s of that speech again never to be heard again. He has now been in prison for 26 yrs after life time succrifice for the country as freedom fighter. Yemane is at the heart of these tortures if that is what u call heroism.

      • Almaz October 13, 2017

        It is funny the USA is fighting for the “rights” of local employees. The is a country who careless to the anguish of people not aligned to their economic/militarily hegemony and twisted agenda based on so-called security interest. But as for Eritreans let alone citizen living/residing in Eritrea you are bound to obey the rule of the land with no if(s) and but(s) regardless you accept or not the current legitimate government. Yes you might be right antagonizing everything and all Eritrea started just before this coward OB, but then the mission/objective/goal was to prevent Ethiopia from falling into the country run by mesafints of the Amhara the Oromo the Tigray, the Wolita etc. the path chosen was to put pressure on Eritrea but the fact is that it gets worst during coward OB time with a push from very anti Eritrea elements within his admin. As to accepting deported Eritrean — OB want all to leave the country let American deal with them — now Eritrea always welcome anyone who wants to relocate back. As to the military service and other national agendas and policy, it is not the USA or any country business to dictate. Hope they will work something so it will be back to the 18 (??) months…. Sorry to be so long and winding. Anyway with Love

          U are mixing up again. It is our demand not usa or europe to have a leader ellected by us the people. We can not accept a leader who hung to power by force surrounded by generals from his village apointed by him. Listen to beteweded speech again. He is the real hero like all the others. Burrying your head in the sund will not elliminate the problem.
