OAKLAND, CA February 25, 2012 – EYC Bay Area, California and EYSC North America announced today that they have successfully concluded the unification agreement of both groups. Both groups are at the forefront of promoting democracy and rule of law in Eritrea, and this unification allows the formation of a stronger and more formidable youth-led grassroots organization in North America and beyond.

About EYC-Bay Area, California

EYC is an independent, non-profit and non-partisan civic organization founded over three years ago by Eritreans residing in the Bay Area. It aims to utilize all legitimate and peaceful measures of public empowerment and awareness to support and advocate for constitutionalism governance in Eritrea. In addition, EYC provides the necessary support and advocates on behalf of Eritrean immigrants especially those who have recently immigrated to the United States and more specifically to the Bay Area.

 

About EYSC-North America

EYSC began operations approximately one year ago. Using social media, EYSC has quickly built an extensive network of pro-democracy young Eritreans from all over the world.  EYSC-NA was established in August of 2011.  To further it’s goals EYSC has assembled branches in Los Angels, CA and Houston, TX and is now in the process of establishing more branches in the Midwest and the tri-states area of Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.  EYSC-NA recently announced a campaign known as “Freedom Friday” where volunteers make phone calls to Eritrea and remind the public to stand up against the dictatorship.

 

United We Stand

Over the past few months, EYC and EYSC-NA have been exploring ways of working together and coordinating their efforts with the aim of becoming more efficient and effective.  They recognize that this unification is necessary not only to capitalize on resources but also to serve of our people. The two organizations have a common vision and ultimately, it was decided that a stronger unified organization is better able to leverage change more successfully in a more purposeful and strategic direction.  An Interim Board comprising of board members from both organizations has been established.   They will work with other youth organizations in North America and other parts of the world to unite the Eritrean youth in the Diaspora communities.

 

The Way forward

In the next few months EYC-EYSC will continue to focus on online and offline mass mobilization, lobbying the world community to pressure the Eritrean regime, and call on the Eritrean people inside the country to rise up and demand change. The group is also interested in working with other organizations worldwide that share the same mission.  EYC-EYSC along with other youth organizations will soon conduct a Youth Conference that will unequivocally demonstrate that the young generation can led the effort in changing the current status of dictatorship to constitutional governance and rule of law.

 

Thank you

In a joint statement, EYC-EYSC stated, “We believe this is an important step toward freeing our country from the grips of a one-man dictatorship. We are grateful for the continued support, wise advice and goodwill we have received from individuals and esteemed organizations. Thank you for making our progress possible.”

    RIGHT- ON GUYS , THAT IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT.
    EYC and EYSC are united to form a united strong civic organization. Good news.
    The more we unite the more we get stronger and more closer to each other. Now start
    the fight to educate our people to repair the mental damage done by HGDF actions. And
    tell HGDF mendef better run and hide do not fool themselves because they know Eritreans
    once we rise-up they are history.
    All fair minded change and peace loving individuals should show solidarity and support. Our
    involvement at this moment is necessary and seriously on demand .

    Congratulation,unity is power and something extraordinary will happen with unity. There is nothing the Devil fears more than our unity. This means the regime number one tactics is to bring disunity among us. If the regime can succeed, then we crippled.

    If you ever have been to a symphony, then you can appreciate the importance of agreement. At the beginning of the symphony, the orchestra warms up. This is when everyone plays on their own without considering others. The noise is atrocious. But when the conductor lifts the baton, the racket stops and all eyes are on him. The with a gentle wave of the baton the orchestra plays such heavenly music.

    What makes the difference? The orchestra is in one accord. No one is on their own. And when they all do their part the music is lovely.On their own, the music does’t amount to much but together they sound breathtaking, we,too, need to harmonize together.

    The youth should break the cycle of inferiority complex and appreciate the importance of leadership orientation by the elders. They must therefore view elders as assets and partners rather than competitors and rivals. The youth should also stop blaming the elders and other key partners but instead ensure effective positive communication for better relations. Don’t be offended, cut that ego off. Ego is the worst enemy of everyone.

    We are powerful together. it is time that we stop the division and strive for unity. and when we do, watch out! change is coming.

    This is truly a great moment and I hope that this unity will send a shock wave to the blind followers. More importantly I hope and pray that the strangled Eritrean youth may find hope and purpose in this movement.
    Keep up the good job!
    All the best of luck.

    CONGRATULATIONS dear friends, brothers, sisters and compatriots! What a great idea and step! I wish you all the best and implore you to do your best to have others incorporated and or reorganized with similar objectives and goal. I would also like to modestly advise you to use MARCH 8 – INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY of 2012 as a symbolic day of your unity. Please make sure that if not all your members at least representatives be present and participate in this day’s celebration, a day of allegiance of all Free Eriterian Women Associations. Your standing shoulder to shoulder with these women’s associations a booster to our goal. Keep up your determination and conviction.
