    Amanuel,
    Your input could be reinforced by the Eritrean-oppositions’ move. The Eritrea opposition can select a representative with the power to represent them and the Eritrean people in the African Union conference. It does not matter whether they make it through or not. Just a declaration that they are the true representative of the Eritrean people can give an impetus to some members to show their support to the Eritrean people as well as to demonstrate their policies of care for African people who are dying in high seas and deserts.

    That is true. Sadly though, our opposition parties are like small kiosks with the owners as only members. Thus let alone represent us i am afraid if they represent their families. How many parties can u name z.hagos? I can not name a single one correctly. The only thing we know is the strong rejection of pfdj by almost all the young generation that is categorized under the name justice seekers that some x pfdj trying to cash in.

      U are right. That is sad but true. The flip side though, is we are only a step away. The abusers as u said are facing strong rejection and isolation by the people. They will not survive long.
