53rd of the Eritrean People’s Armed Struggle Commemorated in UK

By PFDJ London Branch,

London: On Saturday 30th/08/2014 Representative of the Embassy of State of Eritrea to the UK and Ireland Mr. Saleh Abdella delivered an insightful presentation to Eritrean community and members of the PFDJ; the event took place at Fenwick Hall in Clapham North, South of London.

In connection with the 53rd anniversary, Mr. Saleh Abdella, presented the paramount importance of ensuring popular awareness, strong organization, steadfastness and spirit of sacrifice in the nation-building process, as attested to by the armed struggle and the subsequent experience acquired in the post-independence period.
He further stressed the need for putting up sustained endeavors so as to guarantee the success of the popular struggle towards building a strong nation in which prosperity and social justice prevail.

Mr. Ahmed Mohammed, chair person of the National Organisation UK, also presented speech about the struggle for independence that was prompted on 1st September 1961, with the full emancipation of Eritrea from the hands of the last colonizer. They came to understand that it is not the number that matters, but the strong will and the set mind that determines the end result. Eritreans had enough suffering at the hands of successive colonizers and were determined to root out colonialism and subjugation in order to decide their own destiny and future. And that became true on May 24, 1991.

Various activities were also staged by adolescents and PFDJ London Branch members on the occasion, artists performed cultural music in connection with the 53rd anniversary.

Today it is 53 years since the beginning of the armed struggle for independence. When we celebrate the 53 years of the beginning of the armed struggle for independence it is with mind that the history of the Eritrean Revolution amply proved that a popular struggle for a just cause based on conscious, united and organized people is bound to triumph over a heavily armed colonial entity enjoying the support of the major powers.

And determined that we build a new history out of past history so as to make use of our history as source of valuable lesson and wisdom, and thereby ensure the continuity and viability of history.
The event was organised by the PFDJ London Branch.
