  1. eritrea is on the brink to collapse! why do you cheat people!

  2. USA along with IGAD is studying the current state failure of eritrea,that eritrean government is dying and decaying!

  3. Is beautiful to see gatherings of many minds, for sure something new and powerful comes out..Then the new generation of the Eritrean diaspora is basically educated averagely at degree level..As a consequence we can state that Eritrea's future is in the hand of dynamic generation and most of all full of intellectual ability.
    Great full deki Eritrea, awet ab serahkum

  4. PFDJ is father of YPFDJ, as an italian proverb will say, "il figlio supera il maestro" (the student overpass the tutor). YPFDJ is an incredible youth generation and a dynamic organization that will heir the country's future leading with a wise elderly people adviceses and experience. Go ahead my dear comrades we, united under the same umbrella are untouchable and strong..

    Eternal memory to our Martyrs
    Victory to the Masses (Awet Ne Haffash/Awet Egel Reheb Gebil/Anesuru Le Jemahir/Batafala Ajenasasi)

  5. who would take the appearance for reality? Only the slavish cult worshiper. The con artist and rascal isaias afewerqi , typical of his Libi tigrai Twi Tway heritage, uses semantics, such as PFDJ, YPFDJ, Hade Libi, Warsai, Serving the Truth etc. feeding his slavish cultworshipers with what they want to hear. Thus hypnotizing them, he feverishly undertakes devastating the destruction of our country and its people.
    Lets take PFDJ, People's Front For Democracy and Justice. It has been twenty years since its inception. However, the people of Eritrea have never seen a glimpse of Democracy and Justice. As a matter of fact, whatever semblance of justice/democracy was during the early phase of the era of Independence, this impostor has systematically taken them away under the guise of false claim of woyane invasion, which was completely disproven by the Eritrean Ethiopian Claim Commission.
    During the early phase of our independence, there was Baito ( congress), not of course perfect but something we could have cultivated to perfection as soon as the ratified Unitary Constitution was implemented. It was to preempt this divine evolution and to grip total power in his hand that he invented illegal and unnecessary war of 1998.
    From 1998 till today, this rascal, willfully abolishing the Baito, and the Constitution, has been subjecting our people to slavery and unimaginable travesty of justice; they cannot write, they cannot speak up, they cannot own anything with any semblance of security etc. they are just being herded like cattle to the slaughter houses. If any one of them show any sign of resistance, ask questions about their plight, he/she is picked up and placed to one his thousands of dungeons who are overflowing with innocent prisoners, if he/she is not shot on the spot, that is.
    One day, in a TV interview, he was asked by a foreign journalist for the whereabout of an Eritrean, a former tegdalai and an editor of one of the news papers during early independence. He flatly denied to have ever known him. The foreign journalist, showed him his photo , but to no avail. The con artist kept his denial to the end.
    Denial, evasion, euphemism are the con artist's hallmarks. The main reason he got rid of all NGOs from Eritrea was not what he told to the Eritrean people, that the NGOs create dependency. No. That was not it.
    The one and only one was: to prevent any news leak from Eritrea to the outside world about the human right violations he was perpetrating. And that was also the reason he closed down all the private news papers in Eritrea.
    It was also for the same reason he has been slaughtering Eritrean elites, pre and post independence and that he shut down the Asmera University, to blindfold our people into the abyss.
    It has become self evident, except to his slavish cult worshipers, that the nature and motive of isaias afeerqi is diametrically opposed to Justice and Democracy. If one can learn from experience, the last 23 years are the proof. The PFDJ, YPFDJ and many other jargons the con artist uses are all devices to deceive the gullible.
    Ask yourself, Why did he talk of drafting a New Constitution, when there is already one ready to be implemented? It is all subterfuges, Libi tigrai Twi Twai!!!!!!!!!!


  7. I love YPFDJ! Eritrea is in good hands.

  8. 4 comments in four days what does this tell you, on the other hand over 50 comments for anything that is ethiopian, unblievable how bogus is eritrea.

  9. @anyee:
    I would
    like to correct you before I respond to your comment. This current article appeared
    on Madote late on 12th of October, hence it has been two days.

    On the question
    on why only few comments now as opposed to more comments when the topic is on
    Ethiopia; well most readers normally don’t write comments, unless it is so outrageously
    bad or good. The few comments on today’s topic is because it is not something
    new to us Eritreans since YPFDJ have regular meetings that are held all over
    the world including Nakfa, the 1st liberated city of Eritrea. On the
    other hand, if we look at the article regarding Ethiopia (e.g. First Ebola case reported in Ethiopia), it is the Ebola news
    that the whole world is talking about, that got us interested. One might say it
    is an unfortunate thing and another might argue it is due to woyanes greed, flying
    to Ebola risky West African countries that brought the Ebola (a.k.a woyane) to
    Ethiopia. The excessive comments are basically due to woyanes and woyane lover’s
    pointless responses trying to defend the shameful woyane.

  10. i realy apretiate you for not jumping the gun and call me agame, weyane, hasadat what else????/
    any way now i know that eritrea is gone from every ethiopian emagination as thinking they are our brothers and all that b.shit was a waste of life and resources for nothing. congradulations we have managed to damage the future of our children through hate of one another and you are part of it.

  11. You your self start that, historically Eritreans are naive..even now who is sitting for a while in someone's territory are not kenyans are you kameleont weyine..

  15. ካብ ጸባ ዘይተረኽበስ ካብ ማይ ጨባ!

  16. why do not you go and take back your teritory, instead of crying foul,

  17. no i am not trying to twist my twisted heart but i realy mean it that i am going to write an article suggesting to celebrate the day we became free of eritreans in my beloved ETHIOPIA, IT WAS BECAUSE OF YOUR AROGANS WE WENT THROUGH LOTS OF HARDSHIP. now we have to forget eritrea and eritreans for good.

  22. You have zero capacity to do now but when we think you are about we will destroy your shabians.

  23. No worries you will never see it coming.

  24. HegdefMan
    The one and only thing that gives pleasure to PFDJ/DIA supporters is speaking evil and name calling about Ethiopia and the reason is that they want to see Ethiopia a failed state as PFDJ's Eritrea.

  25. Eliza,
    PFDJ'S Eritrea is going to destroy Weyane (Hassadat) by YPFDJ who are in a military training process in USA, Canada, and Europe.
