      It is important such events be organized. 1.They help draw the youth
      2. They provide a platform to convey important messages about the crimes, power abuses and repression going on back home by the croocks.
      3. Helps participants know each other which helps build trust among them.etc. in addition to raising money to help fellow eritreans in dire situation.

    Where are the Sudanese, Ethiopian, Somali and Kenyan singers names on this picture?
    We hope this is not a trap or money raising for Esayas’s broke mafia party.

      Do not worry moke. If higdef try to implement its new plan to control zone 4 directly or indirectly, openly or implicitly, it will have grave consequence. 90% eritrians in zone 4 oppose higdef and are nicknamed agame by higdef. If we agree with higdef and say yes we are ethiopians it will mean that higdef is a govrnment of arrarib only. But they will not go back to ararib now for they are to old. That can be intrresting denationalization
