His fate is a clear example of how oppressors fear free speech. The prize goes to him for his firmness of principle in working for an open democratic society in journalism and drama.”

In 1992, an old Eritrean lady came to Asmara, Eritrea from New York city in the United States. She was one of countless Eritreans who were returning or coming for the first time after Independence. But she was special and want an audience with the then Provisional and the now president for life Issias Afewerki. The old lady, Adey Desta, was a legend among Eritreans in the United States and New York area. She was like a mother to many Eritrean Immigrants and she helped a lot of people.

A friend of mine from the area where I live who was as frustrated as many of us by the negative reaction of some Eritreans to the EEPA Conference in Brussels said “ I bet if we were delivered Eritrea free of the dictator today, right now you would see all kinds of people from the opposition coming out of the woods to register their objection to the offer.” That statement is a precise description of the conduct we are witnessing these days.

Some 120 guests who came from all over the world had gathered to from an important organization.  It has been quite a while since there was a credible and strong organization representing the interests of Eritrean plumbers everywhere. Although there was an attempt to form an association of Eritrean plumbers many times, it was not successful for many reasons. That is why many put their faith and trust on this new attempt. Participants of the three day conference came from all walks of life and plumbing activity. Some are seasoned and career plumbers, others are new to the industry, and still some others work only part time as plumbers and part time in other professions.

Overshadowed by those with Ethiopia, almost always to Eritrea’s disadvantage. With the exception of a brief window in the 1990s, the US has seen Ethiopia as its primary strategic ally in the region and treated Eritrea as something of an afterthought to be sacrificed when its actions or interests ran counter to Ethiopia’s.
