Report of a meeting with Eritrean youth and women in London


Based on the organisational committee of LSC strategy on how to approach the Eritrean youth and women in London and with the consultation with the rest of the LSC members, the committee has called for a limited number of youth for a meeting on 13 March 2011. The aim of the meeting was to explore with the youth the ways and means which ensure their participation in the upcoming national congress.

The meeting was opened by Hassan Ibrahim, chairman of the organisational committee of LSC, welcoming the youth and introducing them to Daniel Welde and Bereket Kahsai of the ENCDC. Daniel has briefed the youth on the outcome of the national conference and the importance of their participation in the process of the struggle against the dictator in our country. Bereket also stressed on the urgency of youth participation in the process of the democratic changes in the country.. He urged the youth to play the leading role in fighting the regime in our country through getting and sharing the lessons of the face book led youth revolution in our region.   

As our target of the meeting was to listen, the youth were given enough time to express their minds . The following were the most important of their comments and suggestions:

-The  ENCDC should have to work hard to reach the Eritrean youth as very few of them are aware about national conference and the objectives  

  of the commission

-The ENCDC should benefit from the available media such as face book, pal talk chat rooms and Eritrean sites

Tasks & Commitments

-The youth agreed to establish a network through face book and other means in coordination with Bithynia, vice chairwoman of the organizational committee of LSC.

-Call for a wider meeting of youth with the commission on April 2011 in London

– Rallying the Eritrean youth to participate in the biggest demonstration on 25 Mar which will take place at the Eritrean Embassy in London.
