Alliance calls on int’l community to pressurize Eritrean regime

Addis Ababa, August 24 (WIC) – The Eritrean Democratic Alliance (EDA) has urged the international community to put pressure on Eritrea so as to end the direful political and economic situation in that country.

EDA Chairman, Tewelde Gebreselassie, told WIC recently that the international community needs to do its part in order to stop the misery and suffering of the people of Eritrea.

He said the United Nations as well as the international community should inspect the efficient implementation of the sanctions imposed on Eritrea last year.

Eritrean Democratic Alliance (EDA) has recently organized a conference that brought together over 330 delegates from all Eritrean nationalities, religious leaders, journalists, foreign Diaspora, experts, civic societies and diplomats.

During the conference, all the 12 political parties under the alliance agreed to overthrow Isaias Afwerki and his government through armed and political means, he said.

Regarding the kind of government the alliance would form if it manages to take power, Tewelde said EDA will establish a democratic government as well as establish a new and strong relationship with all neighboring countries.

According to Tewelde, there are more than 300 underground prison- cells in Eritrea, which he said are more than the schools available in the country.

He further said all universities and colleges in Eritrea are not currently functioning. The tyrannical Eritrean regime is forcing all the youth to join the military camp so that it will deploy them to destabilize the Horn of Africa.

With reference to Ethiopia’s commitment to host the Eritrean refugees, he said the country is doing unforgettable deeds to the people of Eritrea. He further urged Ethiopia to continue its efforts.
