  1. First of all in order to have a national legislation you have to have an elected national legislators which Eritrea does not have. What we have in Eritrea is a one man rule and his criminal gangs with no check and balances. This is Not a national legislation, it is one of the many DECREES by the tyrant after heavy alcohol consumption and getting high on drugs, to use it as a sham to pounce and kill or jail one or more of his old comrades. (I wonder who will be this time, I am suspecting Hagos kishas time is up). This decree will go in the history books as one of the funny ones. A terrorist regime of ISAYAS AFEWORKI no better than the savage terrorist of BOKO_HARAM and ISIS, fighting against civilization, known for its firm stand against education and knowledge, known for enslaving people to satisfy a twisted ideology, known for raping, jailing and killing innocent people, passing a DECREE to fight terrorism (it is hilarious).
    The day when the Eritrean people rise up and eliminate the criminal TERRORIST junta of ISAYAS AFEWORKI (watch Gadhafi’s final seconds and final words) will be a huge victory for Eritrean people and will be the beginning of freedom, democracy, civilization.
    Soon chain of slavery will be broken, chains of imprisonment will be broken, chain which locked down (spring of wisdom) gates of our university will be broken.
    Our Eritrea will elect
    —– intellectuals who understand freedom, democracy, politics, diplomacy, economy.
    —– intellectuals who understand PEOPEL are the greatest asset of a country .
    —–intellectuals who understand that you can NOT build a nation without education.
    —— intellectuals who understand that NO BODY is above the law and constitution will be the highest law of the land.
    Our beautiful Eritrea is getting destroyed by UNelected criminal gang and still we are watching from the side line hopping somebody will come and save us. Our courageous spiritual leaders are speaking and it is almost the end of 2014 and still we are asleep. Where is our HAMOT deki hager why are we allowing this kind of brutality rule our land.
    SMERRRRRRR deki Eritrea we have more and very solid thing to unite than what divides us.
    Stop the bickering and unite and lets build a free democratic Eritrea.

  2. Only talk is cheap! It is not like people now live like in the 1980 and before. We live in an age of instant information and people, at least those who are interested on what is going on in the world can find out the truth like a flash. It seems to me the Eritrean Juntas are retarded people who live in the past. Like in their Sahle time. Eritrean politicians if they can be called that live in lies, they sleep in lies and they wake up in lies. They really stink.
