    Eritrea has come a long way since Isaias staged a disturbing “coup” against the people on September 18, 2001 when the press and dissenting voices were buried alive….he stole the whole victory and declared watsay slavery….all private journalists are in prison since Sep2001, Eritrean youth are #1 refugees in number of African migrants trying to cross Mediterranean Sea. Dictator Isaias Aforki is in power since independence 1991 up to now. No any kind of election had ever been held. Thousands are in prison merely because of their political views and opinion on the current situation. The situation inside Eritrea, is much worse than the situation in the colonizers time, very disturbing and heartbreaking end. The struggle of freedom still continues Eritrea and Eritreans shall prevail the elite of the dictatorial regime inside Eritrea and their blind supporters in diaspora will be ashamed like the colonizers who did left in defeat and shame. Peace to Eritrea and it’s peace loving people.
