A high-level delegation of the Eritrean People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) headed by Party chairman attended the Africa Committee meeting of the Socialist International that took place in West Africa (Niamey, Niger) between 17 and 18 March 2013 and discussed burning issues under the topic: “peace, security and democracy in the Sahel” with emphasis on the situation in Mali.

The EPDP delegation consisted of the chairman, Mr. Menghesteab Asmerom, and the head of the Foreign Relations, Mr. Woldeyesus Ammar, and had the opportunity of taking part in the deliberations that considered those hot issues bedeviling the Sahel, an African region that stretches from the Horn countries of Eritrea and Somalia to West Africa, including troubled Mali.

The EPDP delegation shared the meeting’s special focus on what has being happening in Mali until the timely French intervention. However, it also drew in sharp terms the attention of fraternal party members of the Socialist International to the disturbing and ever worsening human condition in Eritrea. It stressed what Eritrea and its people, now living under the worst despot in Africa, expect from peace-loving democratic forces of the world.

Besides making its points through intervention at the discussions, the delegation was able to distribute to meeting participants a written statement prepared for the occasion, the Political Programme, Party Profile, and various issues of its English language publication.

 

The meeting started discussions on the subject matter after electing Mr. Emmanuel Golou of Benin as the chairman of the Africa Committee. A leadership member of the African National Congress (ANC) was elected in absentia as vice-chairman of the Africa Committee for tenure of five years. Mr. Luis Ayala, the Secretary General of Socialist International, shared the front platform with the new Africa Committee chairman and vice-chairpersons of the global Socialist International to assist in conducting of the meeting which was attended by a large number of African delegations and SI member parties from Europe and Latin America.

 

Nearly a dozen reports and research papers, with special focus on Mali, were presented at the meeting by member parties from countries of the Sahel region, North Africa and other parts of the continent.

The reports established that the disquieting events in the Sahel region, particularly the conflict that unfolded in Mali as of January 2012, were caused by many factors of destabilization including bad governance; corruption; flourishing crime industry of drug dealers and human traffickers; drought, economic hardships and other geopolitical causes.

At the conclusion of the meeting on Monday, the Africa Committee issued what it called “The Niamey Declaration” that dealt mainly with the crisis in Mali.

  1. The two A’s are ever so marching forward as a two man or few bandwagen thundering to the cliff and the camel in eri is marching steadily to its cardinal goal.

    • These rubbish individuals, walking empty like a stray dog .

      • Folks what’s wrong with you? a lot of the comments came out of people who do not able to control their emotions. Unable to control your emotion is a sign of weakness. I can’t say most of you are weak but most of your comments are emotion driven.
        Let us come to the EPDP guys, those guys are trying to do some thing that they believe could help to the majority of Eritrean people while most of you are trying to underestimate their move. Back in the old days when the EPLF trying to work hard for the Eritrean independence, a lot of people like what are you doing now were thinking their move was stupid and would get them no where but history proved us to the opposite; they produce independent Eritrea. Owing the fact that we have a leadership that definitely need a policy change, underestimating and bashing some one’s move is not good as far as you could not come up with a better way.
        God Bless Eritrea.

        • These EPDP organization are better than the cowards who claimed to have created a Bayto in Hawasa. At least the EPDPs are not ashamed to wear their values, languages and identity.
          Whether Hgdefites or opposition groups, I can not stand people who are ashamed of their true historical identity. For example, a person by the name Salih Gadi whose parents came from Shire Tigray is ashamed of his Tigrinya language and many other endemic Eritrean languages. Salih Gadi claims more Arab than the average Arab. How can one create a worthy nation that is proud of itself with servants and slaves like Salih Gadi who is ashamed of his true Shire, Tigray identity and his Tigrayan language?

  5. I was very happy to read that the EPDP leaders have participated in the March 2013 Socialist International meeting that took place in Niamey, Niger. I was also very glad to read that the EPDP delegates have presented the dilemma the Eritrean people are facing under the tyrannical PFDJ rule. What is more, the EPDP delegation was also able to distribute a written statement to the participants of the International meeting. It would thus be very important if the EPDP statement distributed at the Niamey Socialist International meeting could be published so that readers can comment on it. Equally important is also to know what the EPDP’s stand is on the French intervention in Mali.
    Forward with the struggle for justice and democracy in Eritrea!!

  8. who are these people? who knows them? what they have done for Eritrean, because
    they collaberated with enemy to destroy Eritrea. What a shame, who gave them the
    name EPDP, the british foreign ministry, by paying them welfare. They have the right to dream, but Eritrea needs who can work hard and sweat to built it. I tell them go to
    “Dembe – Aboor”

    • Well,they believe they are working hard to help the people live in a lawful country; a country that governed by democratically elected government; and make Eritrean attractive to its youth;dictatorship no. Are they really going to do it—- may be may or may be not but they are at least trying! try is not danger. what we know is change is needed;change that prove that hardworking people love to stay in their homeland and stop the desire to live in foreign countries. Law should be above the government a government above the law is a colonizer.
      God Bless Eritrea!

  9. Mengstaeb Asmerom Ferro went to Meda 1974 and was a cadree with ELF unity ’till 1982.He live now in Sweden an comfortable life with his family and politic inside as part time work.

    This two birds are to no where but abused our beloved country image in any where they goes.The goest are under our eays control.

  10. This ladies are pappets, who does not have respect and life. I am so happy that Eritrea did not got independence through this guys. Their history is agley. There is no hope for them in the future of Eritrea.

  11. Is EPDP an a socialist party?kkkkkk really funny. I think its an ethnic based (Bilen-Party). Mer-At key hazu si, Arki Ree esi yi quatseru. Eway hifret Bashay Asmerom & Berenberas Weldeyasus.kkk

    • They are better than some Eritrea slaves who burn their own languages.

      “History repeated itself again 28 years later after the second organizational conference of the ELF/Jebha in 1975. Educational books, which were prepared in the Tigré language by teachers at the Sawa training center, were ordered to be burned by the Executive Committee, citing the reason that it was a conspiracy directed against the status and prominence of the Arabic language in Eritrea. The leadership of the ELF gave orders not to prepare any more educational texts in the Tigré language henceforth.”

  12. how is those people invited to the meeting we do know them

  13. Who are those people? What a mambo jambo. WHO REALLY ARE THIS INDIVIDUALS?

  14. It is laughable to see these idiots who abolished jebah are pretending to be “men”. These people weer the house boys of the feudalistic Revolutionary Council led by many murderers. They were selfish idiots who never went away from the shades of Arkobkobai, just drinking coffee by jebena and have fun by forcing our sisters as their mistresses are miserably failures.I don’t think there will be any person who can be swayed by these revolutionary Council house boys dam A’s. Do not trust these people, Weldesus Amar. Mengstab Berhe, Tesfai Bribgi, Tecle Melekin, Nezereab, Amanuel Mengustu, Dawit Ghebremeskel, Kidane Hagos, Zegehanese, and Mengstab Asmerom, of jebha in the name of senior Cadres.if they cant accomplish any thing then and since 1982 what are this dam A’s to from now on.

    • So you want us to trust the murderers and rapists of the old Jebha such as Salih Hayoti, Idris Abdela, Habtemariam Abraha, the man who was wedi Tela Bayru’s valet boy and mule guard, or the entire Bayto Hawasa leaders who hate themselves and true identity?

  15. Meskerem, please take of those idiots picture, because when i open the web of Mesk, to read some news , i apset my stomack and vomiting.eoeoeoeoeoeoooooo.

  16. Socialis. Ha ha………ha.. Obviouslythe do not represent us. ( Eritrean people in general ).
    Very funny … who are they anyway? I do not think. We should care much.
    at least they have Job for NOW!! Socialist my….#$%.

  17. no they are no high level of Eritrean they are puppet left over of jebah and puppet of Wayne leave Eritrea alone thank s

  18. These EPDP organization are better than the cowards who claimed to have created a Bayto in Hawasa. At least the EPDPs are not ashamed to wear their values, languages and identity.

    Worthy people like the Turkish, Somalis, Afars, Iranians, Saudis, Kurdish, Israel, Koreans, Thais … are proud of their true identity and languages but worthless people hate themselves and their own languages as if they were slaves.
