Die Eritreer in Europa sind empört über die jüngsten Anschuldigungen gegen ihr Volk und gegen ihr Land durch den sogenannten UN Menschenrechtsrat. Sie stehen für die Menschenrechte ein und protestieren in Genf, Schweiz, am Montag, dem 22. Juni 2015.
Eritreans in Europe, outraged by the recent assault on their people and country by the so-called Commission of Inquiry of the UN Human Rights Council, and standing for genuine human rights, are holding a protest rally in Geneva, Switzerland on Monday 22 June, 2015.
In Eritrea, June 20 is an official Martyrs’ Day (Memorial Day) during which Eritrean nationals within Eritrea and in the Diaspora solemnly pay tribute to the thousands of heroes and heroines who paid the ultimate sacrifice during the struggle for independence and while protecting Eritrean sovereignty. On our part, we salute them and in their name we renew our pledge to care for their families and advance the national interests.
Eritrea lost 65,000 of its sons and daughters during the struggle for national independence. As if this were not enough, another 19,000 were sacrificed to prevent reversal of Eritrean sovereignty. During this period of “no peace, no war” situation more gallant fighters are putting their life on hold and paying the ultimate price repulsing enemy encroachments.
