At its ordinary meeting of 12 October 2013, the Coordinating Committee (CC) of the Eritrean National Democratic Forces (ENDF) reviewed important developments affecting Eritrea and its people. These included:
Dear Herr Schulz - We are representatives of the Eritrean National Council for Democratic Change, an international umbrella organization for the Eritrean diaspora. We are writing to thank you for your support over the tragic loss of the lives of would-be migrants off Lampedusa, and to request your further help in resolving this longstanding problem.
Any guarantee for the state funeral of our shipwreck victims? Were not Yemane Gebreab and Tesfamicael Gerahtu, the brother of Tesfalem Gerahtu, the master minder of the Westgate mall attack of Kenya who went to the scene of the diseased veteran fighter, Naizghi kuflu, paid tribute and promised to take back home for state funeral ceremony and finally winded up with horror? How can we believe the words of Yemane Gebreab, then, to cover all the expenses and carried out a state funeral for our victims?
News agencies picked up news of the sinking of a ship off the Italian coast which was carrying about 500 refugees, mostly Eritreans, including women and children in what is an appalling humanitarian tragedy of the Eritrean people and on the conscience of all mankind.
“Dictator Isias, the Eritrean youth in and outside the country, are going to stop you preventively from oppressing, torturing and exterminating the Eritrean people, and ruining the country. We warn you that you better realize that living on borrowed time is not possible anymore.”
