The deceptive HIGDEF style Eritrean Independence Day celebration, of May 24th, 2017, and the scheduled Festival of August 11-13, 2017, in Seattle, Washington, involving North America and Canada, will face strong public outrage, and stiff Mass challenges, locally, nationally and internationally.
The Eritrean People, inside Eritrea, under the brutal dictatorship of Isaias Afeworki and his handful collaborators are at the darkest moment of their history. Eritrea has no running water, no electricity, no medical services or medicine, not enough food to eat, and after 26 years of Independence, no national constitution, and yet, by pretending That Eritrea and its people are well, HIGDEF is planning to celebrate the Eritrean Independence Day of 2017, deceptively, with uncharacteristic falsehood and illusion, by propagating that our country, Eritrea, is doing well, and nothing to worry about. In addition, they have a plan to run a glamorous Festival in Seattle, on August 11-13, 2017, involving North America and Canada. Their Festival, as usual, will be empowered by loud live music, fanfares, and jubilation, whose main purpose is for twisted political gains and quick money making schemes.
The Eritrean Masses, in Seattle and Vicinities cannot and should not morally allow such misleading and highly deceptive events of dances, fanfare, and jubilation in the name of the Eritrean Independence Day and Festival, which is non representative of the Hellish socio -political and economic environment in Eritrea.
When it comes to the celebration of our Eritrea Independence Day of May 24, 2017, we, Eritreans for Justice and Democracy, in Eritrea of Seattle and vicinities , will, unlike HIGDEF, celebrate it in remembrance of our martyrs, at an appropriate public hall by lighting candle lights and ushering flowers, and expressing our prayers, in unison. That is the most appropriate and highly reflective of the realities of the day, in present Eritrea.
