We-the Eritrean Unity for Democratic Change (EUDC) are shocked by the news and video clips circulating in mass media. Although we have been crying out loud about the inhumane treatment of African brothers and sisters in the hands of Bodoween in Libya, we hoped with the intervention of all peace loving and law abiding citizens of the international community would get better. To our dismay, the situation has become worse. In fact it escalated beyond belief to the extent that Africans are now being sold in an open slave auction.
We, the Eritrean Unity for Democratic Change (EUDC) are delighted to hear the long-awaited merger news of the two sisterly organisations- the Eritrean Global Solidarity- EGS and the Eritreans for Facilitating National Dialogue-EFND. Together the two organisations can create the intellectual powerhouse of the nation by swiftly amalgamating their organization with other civic society organizations to further broaden the spectrum of diversity to represent Eritreans from all walks of lives and cultures. This grand vision requires initiatives, acknowledgments, and the cooperation’s from all sides of the participants.
Work earnestly to make the duration, tasks and mandates of the transitional government effective, peaceful and democratic.
The national system of education should be free from religious influence. Religious institutions will also have the right to teach religious studies without government intervention.
When the government takes land from indigenous people for development, the government will have the responsibility to provide the owners with alternative land and/or compensate them fairly.
As a multi-ethnic, and multi religious organization, EUDC expresses consternation at incidences of this nature anytime they happen, and condemns every atrocity committed by the government or by any other group in every corner of the country. We strongly believe that creating a pluralist/multiparty democratic system with religious institutions separated from the state and vice versa with clear delineation between them is the only way to guarantee a viable everlasting democracy in Eritrea.
The core task of the defense forces of Eritrea is to protect and defend the constitution, the sovereignty of Eritrea, the people and the property of citizens
