My name is Samuel Peteros I am 14 years old and I currently live in the United Kingdom. Ever since I was a child I wondered how beautiful Eritrea is? After seeing Eritrea on a family vacation I realized how terrible dictatorship was in Eritrea, when I heard dreadful stories about families and citizens of Eritrea trying to run away in order to forge a good future. I always wondered if, If only Issaias had resigned as president would they stay. If democracy, equality and liberty were introduced would they stay? and for many people the answer would be yes. However in today’s world, Eritrea is unnoticed and forgotten, due to Issaias’ denial of the actual reality in the country. Eritrea’s record with regard to democracy, equality and liberty is appalling. From given statistics, 2/3 of Eritrea is facing malnourishment this statistics gives a good indication that Eritrean are desperately suffering without anyone realizing the effect Issaias has brought?
When I toured the villages of Eritrea I saw civilians face torture (the darker side of the world) I regretted I couldn’t do anything as nobody would take notice of me because of my age but through this message I want people to take notice open their eyes and read what I have to say as enough is enough all you patriotic Eritreans please listen to this message “if you want a better country with a brighter future stand up for your own peoples right and together we shall destroy all evil hopes and desires Issaias has for our own people”. Since he was elected all he had done was bring change for the worst whether it was arresting opposition members to journalists, who only wanted to do their job. What do you call this? Where’s the hero we asked for? None of us wanted dictatorship instead everyone wanted freedom, equality, liberty and democracy on the other hand we get opposite.
Three dictators have died or resigned now its time for Issaias to face his crime and deal with the consequences, for he is the one who is killing innocent civilians for speaking the truth. Iis this what freedom is, where is the democracy and the liberty? Every single person in Eritrea shouldn’t have to carry on living this way but this can only happen with everybody’s support to overthrow the world’s cruellest dictator for the sake of millions.
Thank you for reading my article.
