Bologna: A Nostalgic Return to Eritrea’s Second City


Over 10,000 Eritreans attended the 40th anniversary Bologna Festival 


Bologna: A Nostalgic Return to Eritrea’s Second City

By Bereket Kidane,

Thousands of Eritreans descended on Bologna this past week to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Bologna Summer Festivals and pay homage to Eritrea’s liberation era spirit of brotherhood, dedication and commitment to the liberation of Eritrea.  It was a nostalgic return to a city that was once declared by its mayor as “Eritrea’s capital city until the liberation of Asmara.” For all intents and purposes, Bologna was Eritrea’s second city, after Nakfa, from 1974 to 1991. This week’s Bologna reunion must have been a trip down memory lane or “a blast from the past” as we say in America for multiple generations of Eritreans who used to attend those liberation era festivals with all their excitement and anticipation.

Those young men and women who used to toil day and night as taxi drivers and maids donated most of their earnings to the EPLF so that their tegadelti brothers and sisters back in the “field” could have provisions.  Those patriots have now become senior citizens and can proudly look back nostalgically to the contributions they made to the struggle in their youth. The children of those patriots who grew up attending those festivals have now become young adults and have taken over the leadership responsibilities of Eritrean Community Centers in the diaspora. Following in the footsteps of their parents, they are organizing, directing and leading Eritrean Community Centers in Europe, the Americas and the Middle East.

For those of us who never attended the Bologna Festivals, we knew Bologna from videos and classics such as Habte Shawel’s “Susas Alata.” In the pre-internet era, festival goers eagerly awaited for news from the liberated areas and were briefed by EPLF representatives from the field.  The saying “Dehai Adi haba” was more than just fodder for the comedic geniuses of Habte Shawel.

Bologna is once again attended by those representatives from the field who have now become ministers,  liberation era entertainers that kept up the morale of the fighters and young and old patriots. Young and old patriots alike can wax nostalgic and reminisce about the liberation era feats that were accomplished while renewing and re-doubling their commitment to the Eritrean State.  Bologna will always be Eritrea’s second city!

Long live Bologna!
Long live the revolution!
Awet n Hafash!

  2. Bereket, pictures don't lie, where are the over 10 000 participants, lol. Meskinai

  3. Bereket didn't say that, I did.

    The 3-day festival will have over 10,000 visitors. More pictures/videos of the event will be posted shortly.

  4. OK, same questions to you: pictures don't lie, where are the over 10 000 participants? Even Italian reporters on site reported barely 1000 participants!

  5. It's a 3-day event. I doubt a single picture can capture 10,000 people attending at different times and locations within the festival in a 3-day span.

  6. Why should you care, how much people attended the Festival Bologna? None of your business!

  7. The festival was utterly a failure. I don't care how many stars they bring from Eritrea the whole festival was a waste of the people's money. I guess 2% money well spent. Shouldn't that money been used wisely such as bringing our 369 dead home.

    On the other hand I learned who our VP is...

    Freedom and justice to the Eritrean people!

  10. Bo Town - That is what my America friends call Bologna. Kinda like Mo Town for Detroit.
    Bo Town will always be Eritrea's second city. As for those Weyane lackeys, as the saying in Tigrigna goes, "Keytsew'e zimetse Keytsegebe wetse'e."
    Translation: "He who shows up uninvited, leaves unsatisfied."
    Hopefully those Weyane rats left hungry.

  11. 10k in your dreams! It was a big fiasco the Italian news papers confirmed there were 1000 participants, and i would like to add half of them are from different eritrean consulate, embassies, guests, and government officials from Asmara.
    Millions of $$$$ for this failed festival and Asmara is dark as we speak now.
    Shame on you Higdef you failed again like usual.

  12. Ok, we were only 500 be happy. Are you satisfied that only few participated? Meron ዕደ

  13. I will be your supporter if you managed to have 1000 participants (followers) on your opposition festivities LOL


    Stop comparing yourselves with the wave of HAFASH !!!


    Thats just silly like comparing a rat (woyane slaves) vs elephant (HGDEF)


    LOL

  14. Everyone is abroad for his best interest and no dead body been taken home and burried by the government before. So why should the government take the responsibility of the bodies? The responsiblity should lie upon them who encouraged these people (the family and the smugglers) responsibility to bring them home. The Government have only responsibility to gather the bones of fallen war heroes but not civilians who betrayed their country.

  15. sorry Madote I was to mean all silly here who believe on numbers but not the reality LOL
    I wonder why they care if there were 1000 or 10 in numbers ? LOL

  17. Bologna is the spirit of Eritrea. Never kneel down baby!

  18. The only complaint I have about Eritrean festivities is, all who participate must have same political viewpoint. Why I say this is because all cities have made a list of participants to allow them to join the flock. This is called SEGREGATION ! Let all festivities be participated OPENLY by anyone who love to join. Be it Somali/Sudani/Eritrean/Italian/or whoelse just make sure to control at the check point and have STRONG security personal allover among the public. i AM SURE THOUSANDS OF NEWCOMER ERITREANS WOULD LOVE TO JOIN THE MASS BUT UNFORTUNATELY NEVER HAPPEN WITH THOSE WHO BELIEVE ARE MORE ERITREANS THAN EVERYONE ELSE ! Shaebia is loosing a huge number of descent countrymen because of those who have the power to differentiate and divide the people from within as they wish. Really Sad.


    Have confidence and open-up my country!


    Never forget that the JOINED MUSCLE OF OUR MASS been the REASON OF OUR FREEDOM !


    UNITED WE SURVIVE - DEVIDED WE FALL !!!!


    Make real ----- AWET N'Hafash ! -----
    our fallen Heroes/Heroens last word.

    ReplyDelete
  19. "Are you satisfied that only a few participated"? Yes i did matter of fact, because it shows Higdef is losing ground among the population in general and among young particular.
    Did you see there weren't that much young among the crowd? Can you guess a festival of this caliber would be if is was done 3-4 years back?
    This teachs all the government officials that the people's heart are not the same anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  20. your deduction lucks logic at best, if indeed the youth are missing from the event; it can only tell us they either are lucking the funds or are waiting in the unemployment line; of course assuming they hold some kind of legal documentation in the host country. By your own admition most are illegal immigrants. something to think about?

    In other word you are saying you are abroad for your self interest and on the other hand you are opposing people who want to leave Eritrea for their self interest. Those people who are dying every day, their right to live for their self interest is revoked by the government. That is the main reason they are on the run.

  23. It is not about how many people showed up for the event,rather it is about celebrating the 40 Th anniversary of Bologna.If you have family member out of 369 you mention,may be that is what is eating you apart and commenting with grief.If i where you i seek professional help in dealing with your depression. GOE should not to blame for your decision trying to help your loved one escape the country illegally.

  24. No Rora i was there..wasn't as you say, the park is called: Parco Nord and was full in all locations.

  34. you are right....the people are fed up


    the majority is in the moment quiet, but they know that something must happen.


    they dont want to hear the same excuse like all time....especialy, the tragedy deaths of hundreds of young eritrean in front of lampedusa and the reaction of ERI TV/GOE, showed the silent majority what kind of stupid and ignorant government they have...


    but its also right, that the silent majority afraid for the day after, because they dont know what comes....but they exactly knows, that something must happend/change....they will not except more of this excuse....


    time is running away, at the moment a whole eritrean generation



    have you seen how the diaspora in atlanta questioning the puppet yemane gebreab- and how stupid he look, because that was not what he expected....

  35. Repeating your wishes does not make your claims the truth. You must think the loudest speaker will be perceived as the one who is telling the truth. This is what I learn from you childish vitriol against anyone that supports Eritrea, their beloved nation.

    Also on the one hand you hate the Diaspora, on the other you praise them for their hard questions. You have to begin thinking outside the context of hatred. It is not good for your mental health.

    Your actions are still meant to pave the way to bring in the Weyane by weakening the will of Eritreans to fight! This is what Everyone is able to see. Stop assisting the Weyane!

    1. Weyane and Shabia collaborate to smash Jebha…1980’s

    2. Weyane and Shabia go to War…’98

    3. Weyane (TPDM) and Shabia are collaborating to
    smash the other Weyane….’14

  39. Here you go again with your childish arguments. You sound like those children who argue their friend's toy is useless to intimidate them into letting them play with it: "እውይ ናትካ መጻወቲት ድምጺ 'ኳ ዘይብላ! ሱቕ ኢላ ኣረጊት ገልጣም እንድያ!!" kind of argument.

    Look how quickly, almost instinctively, you guys gave an event that is meant to commemorate the contribution of everyone who participated in the realization of the hard won independence a bad name. For you this is justified as long as you revenge against Issaias and PFDJ for your grievances (real or perceived) without any regard to to the country and its people. Where is your loyalty? With the Weyane!

    You cannot tell how many people came to the festivities during those three or four days by looking at one picture or one video. Beside, Eritreans in the diaspora have been impoverished by paying thousands to smugglers and to free people like you who have thought money grows on trees in adi ferengi! In some cases up to $50,000! This is without including transportation, food, clothing etc.

    The country's law doesn't say "indefinite national service" as a matter of fact it says 1 year training and one year service. In other way you are admitting the country is law less. So this people are trying to leave this law less country.

    ReplyDelete
  42. The word is "obsessed." Other words for that mean the same are fixated, consumed, gripped, preoccupied, possessed. We can see you are obsessed with hatred to Shaebia, Issaias, PFDJ, and many other related stuff. I seem to be (look like) I am obsessed because I am trying to expose your obsession--to you, for your own sake and to others, because you are waging a psychological war on them.

    Facts 1, 2 and 3 show how shallow your reasoning is. You are missing context and additional information in there. You need to begin thinking critically! Besides, you are thinking about ethnicity. That exposes, once again, your racist attitude.

    But the point is that more and more, you are exposing your self as a Weyane agent. I have explained to you why the Weyane is to blame. Your faulty thinking is preventing you from seeing that the Weyane are the one to blame for all your complaints . Reread them if you do not understand. Do not just try to be the one who says the last word.

    You do not want me to expose the cause of your complaints about the prolonged military service is the Weyane (by keeping and increasing its hostile position towards Eritrea) because you hope that other Eritreans will see it your way if the Weyane is put out of the equation. That in itself is childish since it is an obvious fact to all except to those who dream of conquering Eritrea and subjugating its people. Such a crooked analysis is possible only in Weyaneland!

    Gasha, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I didn't duel with anyone whether the attendants were 1000 or 10,000. It wouldn't surprise me if the attendants were over 10,000 due to many factors. I have been in many Eritrean festivals (if I had time I would go to Bologna festival too), I used to play football in different festivals and based on the numbers that were attending in those festivals, I could say more than 5000 people were there. It is also many people go to festivals and spend more of their time cruising the town, clubs, bars.... (That is what I used to do). So I don't expect to see 10,000 people in a single picture or photo.
    Is it morally acceptable to go to festival? This also depends how you see it. As I told you would go to Bologna if I had time because during those occasions, you meet people that you haven't seen long, you experience something different than you usual daily life and so on. Many people look at it as you are supporting the government and contributing money to the government. I always tell to those people - the revenue from the festival doesn't even cover the plane ticket for the artists and organizers.
    What I disagree with people like you is, you take the number of attendance to build a case that people support HIGDEF. I believe many people you seen on the video pray day and night the dictatorship in Eritrea ends soon. They pray day and night their heroes that formed and shaped Shabia to be released from prison, they pray for constitution, they pray for the end of slavary

    As a die hard supporter of the dictatorial regime you are living a state of denial.
    Fact one is a plain truth that shabia and Weyane were in a strong alliance in the 8oth and collaborated to destroy ELF and as a result of that alliance Weyane was rewarded with Badme in 1981 and in 1998 when DIA became angry with his x-allies, he ordered an ignorant General to retake the same Badme.

  49. You are now asking a personal question because you think you will make me feel guilty. Not a chance! Everything you have assumed about me is wrong so far.

    However, I will answer you why people in general are reluctant to move anywhere including back to their home land. When you are very young, you do not think you will die, at least not that young. You think you will conquer the world, everything is possible. You are impatient, everything must happen now!

    Partly because of this attitude, partly because of other reasons, you will take risks that are disproportionate to the extent of the problem you are escaping from or what you want in your life. I am talking about early teens and early twenties. Soon life will teach you a lot of lessons: you will have disappointments, setbacks, some successes, . . . During this time if you are one of the ቐበጥ፡ "እንዳ ክስቶ ገንዘብ መጺኣ'ላ ሳኽራማት type, you could be lost forever blaming what happened to you on everyone else except yourselves.

    Some turn criminals in the diaspora and destroy themselves, dying early, murdering someone, etc and being part of the nightly news in the countries they have fled to.

    If you have always been disciplined መስተውዓሊ type, you will be useful to yourself and to others such as your family back home. As you grow older, you become more and more involved in the new society you have adopted. It is difficult to adopt to a new place when you have grown up. You do not have as many options as when you are younger. You may be able to decide for yourself but others might depend on you. You have responsibilities, etc. etc.

    That is a short explanation to why many do not move back home, but many have also done so. The topic is so large I cannot explain everything to you in such a short correspondence, but don't worry, you will pass through it, you will know it!

    I decided to answer you because there is still a slim chance that you might be Eritrean but I know your questions were meant to make me feel guilty, which gives evidence that you work with the Weyane, whether it is willingly or unwillingly.

    But you are Eritrean, young man do not waste your time and life undoing what your fathers, uncles, aunts, brothers, sisters, neighbors, . . . built with their sweat, blood and bones for more than half a century! Instead take the opportunity of being abroad to educate and position yourself to take advantage of opportunities that may avail themselves to you. You cannot do that by writing against every thing positive about Eritrea. Those who have organized you to do what you are doing just want your blood for their own advantage.

    Most of all take care of your fellow Eritreans wherever you are. Find legal and acceptable ways of improving yourselves. You will be useful to yourselves if not to your family and to your country. The way things stand you become a traitor when you collaborate with enemies to harm your country. You will earn everyone's sympathy when you do not denigrate your own country!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Do not jump from topic to topic whenever you think you have an issue that gives you the last word. I will not answer you again unless you have an honest question or opinion. If you do not understand, it is because you are a Weyane. When the Weyane was a friend there was no issue, but when it is an enemy trying to strangle you it becomes an issue. I am a diehard supporter of my country and my people. Parties and organizations come and go!

    Again this is not because you do not understand it, but most probably because you are working for the Weyane. Let's see what your team leader will tell you to say next time. I am sure you will not come with anything that will make Eritreans give up their country!

    I will continue to expose you, though!

    Meskinay, I feel sorry for you. It is only few % of Eritreans support the few elites that are in power. The rest are hungry for a change., hungry for a new leadership. As I mentioned, different people have different reasons to go to Bologna, majority attendants were there to see their friends that they have not seen for years and to experiencing different vacation time. Don't forget there are no flights to Eritrea so people could go home and visit families. Look how low we have fallen atta denkoro! We don't even have flights to visit home except the crap Olympia, the talibani Yemen air and the rip off Egypt air. The government is a total failure. There is only two nations that are worse that our government - the N. Korean government and the Somalian government.

    You have to know how to play the game fool!

    Gasha,
    The word is "dupe". Other word for that means - deceive, trick, hoax, hoodwink, defraud, cheat, double-cross.
    We are duped by the few people in power.
    The only thing you need to do that you are duped is look at your self - you have no stable country to return back and live peacefully. Deep inside you, like many Eritreans you want to go back with to live there with no fear, you want your kids to go back and live there but you are duped, deceived, double-crossed by the regime.
    Enjoy your "SIDETT" life.

    Gasha
    Simple question
    Why didn't the government demarcat the border right after independence. I was watching a video few weeks ago ( a video of Issayas right after independence) a older man was asking him what he ment about confederation (I guess Issayas was saying to journalists about his plan of confederation with Ethiopia ). This old man was challenging Issayas.
    It seems to me the man had a hidden agenda. If I were in his position the first thing I would do was demarcate the nation.

  74. Hey people you should ignore this puppet, and leave him bark until his last breath. If he was not an agent of weyane he would not respond to every comment in this web. If he is not getting paid by Wayne where would he get all this time to comment.

  75. Once again a very, very, childish rant!

    So you measured my IQ? Now you are angry because you have totally been exposed! All that is left in you is insults. Readers here have seen what a hateful bigot you are. Anyone reading this last post can tell what we are made of!

    So, everyone who lives abroad is living on welfare? You had argued to others that it was not wrong to pursue your self interest, like they have pursued theirs by deciding to live abroad. Is that why you left your country? To be on welfare? If you think they live on welfare, . . . ሰሪሕካ ከቢርካ ሃገርካ እንዳሃነጽካ ከይትነብርሲ welfare ክትበልዕ ሃገርካ ገዲፍካ ተሰዲድካ? ናትካ'ሞ ግበር፡ ተመሃር: ሓንጎልካ ሕነጽ! I did not mean welfare when I talked about opportunities. I meant education, training, work, helping your fellow deserters (take care of each other).

    Ladies and gentlemen: These are the individuals who think they can overthrow the GOEritrea and lead the country. Grow up first!

    "Shabia," very revealing!

  77. I will be Gasha as long as I need to be.
    I’m living abroad because I can do more for my country from here rather than residing in Eritrea at this stage although I do go and visit my country, Eritrea, almost every year.
    For your information, Eritrea is only 23 years old and we are in the process of building our country as it was dismantled and destroyed by you and your likes.
    I’m a proud Eritrean and I’m proud of my country, my people, and my government. There is no one country that has reached to the level where Eritrea is within 23 years of independence. We have done a lot in the health, education, and economy front. We don’t beg for food. No one in Eritrea eats from the garbage!!! But you have to remember that Eritrea is still a very young country that is still developing. And therefore you need to realize its capacity. Eritrea has no capacity to "deficits spend" trillions of other nations’ money to finance its projects like the masters you admire. It manages because its people believe going through hardship for a while until resources from its mines provide it with money to build up both the cities and rural area.
    If you are one of those escapees (stolen government debt to reach the West and turn Opposition) please go to school and learn. You will be more useful to Eritrea staying away from politics. Shut up and go to school now that you have the chance.

    Kkkk now who is acting childish??? Shabia and Shaebia what difference does it make. Kkkkk you are so funny inspector gadget. For every challenge you have been dodging and zigzagging to avoid a logical answer. In all your comment you have not a single day came up with a simple explanation why The nation is not developing ? Why the people are migrating? Why there is no Electricity? Why there is no water? Why the nation is not producing enough food? Why there is shortage of housing? Why people have no decent income? Why young people are locked under national service for over 15 years? Why there is no constitution? Why there is no trial for political prisoners? Why the government bankrupted our airlines? I could go on but this is enough for you. I don't want to give you chest pain.

    I know you will come up with -Woyane, agame bla bla bla b/s you don't have a simple explanation.

    I have enough time for you Mr Denden. This is the least I can do for people like you who sold their moral for a profit. You and your likes are soulless human beings that doesn't feel pain, show sympathy for the suffering of our people. I know some one like you (or used to be like you) but when one of his very close relative died in HGDEF jail during crossing the border, she woke up and start criticizing the regime. MisTetenkefka mizirab intay yabis? The regime is destroying you slowly but surely. Look Eritrea and Eritreanism 15 years ago and look at it today. HIGDEF are dividing you.

  81. There is no game to play. Only the truth! Eritrea for Eritreans by Eritreans!!! Period! But since you are what you are, you don't have the brain capacity to know the truth.

  82. It is none of your business! Take care of your own life first. If you have indeed deserted and are outside Eritrea, you are the one who is in a deep mess. Who are you to command me to answer your stupid question!

    All the point I have been making with you is, was and will be: DO NOT WORK AGAINST ERITREA! DO NOT TRY TO DEMORALIZE ERITREANS! What you you guys are writing is an encouragement to the enemy!

    That was if you are really Eritrean. Otherwise, you will have to choose between traitor, Weyane, or Weyane's servant--all of which amount to the same thing! We will see what you Weyanes are up to.

    At least if you were a real Weyane, we would say you have no choice, but to work for your own survival.

  83. Like you will be enjoying the SIDDET life! Now that I know you are a Weyane living in Ethiopia!

  84. so actually, you want to say...that you prefer to stay abroad til everthing is finish devoloped, and you give me to understand, that eritrea is not reasonable for you and family

    ...you are a really lazy *****

    you wrote "We have done a lot in the health, education, and economy front"

    let me tell you something: lemming, you did a shit....you have no contribution to eritrea, neither to its development or its national service, yet to economy, education or health

  85. If I sell my soul to my people, that I have no regrets but if I bend down and sold my soul to the common enemy that is unforgivable betrayal to my people and my self. as far as jail goes, I have family member I still don't know his where about but I don't have to stand against 6 million people and my hard earned freedom now. The judgment day soon will come and nothing will go unpunished. As for who is dividing the nation, I don't have to answer it to you if your are Eritrean you know it very well. If you don't know ask your good for nothing opposition. WedihankaD

  89. What the hell is going on with all of the so called proud
    Eritreans? The current Government did take everything away from us. There is
    nothing to be proud of. There is only shame across the nation. To many people
    died. Too many people are in prison. Too many people are starving to death. Too
    many people on their way out of Eritrea are being raped, kidnapped…. The worst
    things are happening to our human capital. Everyone is blind and there is no talking.
    Sometimes I am asking myself if we are humans at all. Where is the emotion?
    Where are the feelings for our brothers and sisters? All I see is corruption
    and ego trips. When will we talk? When will we stand up for our generation? How
    long will we continue to live this way? Did our people died for these matters?
    What is wrong with us Eritrean? Therefore there is nothing to celebrate about.
    There is nothing to be happy about. I am 100% Eritrean. I have a lot of love
    for my people. We can do things much better. We all can have a better live. We
    need to stand up and bring up some changes for a positive way of life. We only have
    one life to live. Peace!

  91. Over 10 000? I know people that have been there, but this number is way to high! Why would you write down such an obviously wrong information? I mean when you have been there, than you would knew that 10 000 is way to much and you know it!

  92. Great "Eritrean" person who takes care of his brothers and sisters. How ignorant people can be? What happened to you guys? All who died there probably has done more for their country than you all of your life! How dare can you be? Please dont be such a fool! Thx!
