We must remind the wrld how #TPLF forced a discontent #Ethiopian army during the ‘98 border war to invade, occupy, rape, pillage & kill #Eritreans w/ our sovereign borders. The same actions used against Eritreans by Tigrayan’s then, are the same tactics applied upon their ppl.
How can the wrld gloss over the fact tht these savages who raped their ppl in #Tigray for decades, disgustingly committed the same violent crimes against humanity upon elderly, young #Eritrean women. Meanwhile, int’l wrld sat idle & hushed while USAID operated illegally in Badme.
The deceit, & repugnant character of these ppl hv painstakingly been obvious for generations to #Eritreans, #Ethiopians & #Somali ppl, instead adored, protected & supported by the same self-interested, bloodsucking imperialists nations who’ve deliberately shielded #TPLF.

Happy Friday: #Ethiopia|ns & “fellow #Eritreans across the border”! After 4 months of lies & denials, and less than a week after @ChrisCoons delivered the @POTUS msg that #Ethiopia is committing “systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing” in #Tigray, @PMEthiopia folds like a card: Image
The move came less than a week after @AbiyAhmedAli chose the parliament as his venue to admit what the whole world, except a few in #Eritrea|s NNNN Party #PFDJ and #Ethiopia|s Abiy Cult, knew: #Eritrean|s have been fighting inside #Tigray with knowledge & approval of @PMEthiopia Image
Now, there is only one country in the world whose media has not shared the news that #Eritrean|s are fighting in #Ethiopia and its leader has agreed to withdraw its troops. The country? Hint: its state media slogan is “serving the truth.” Image

PEOPLE ARE DYING IN #TIGRAY: #HumanitarianReliefNow
A Thread

It’s almost 2 months since #WarOnTigray was waged. Since then, much of #Tigray has been under a complete blockade of all life supporting services, including medicine, food, & access to cash. 1/17
It’s also almost a month into an agreement for ‘unimpeded’ humanitarian access to #Tigray the #AbiyAhmed regime signed with the @UN. Yet, even a needs assessment is not conducted to date. 2/17

In the meantime, people are actually dying of hunger in #Tigray. These past 2 days, I had calls with some people that made it to #Mekelle from Wukro, Edagahamus, Abi-Adi & Hagereselam and environs. The stories are similar and harrowing. Words cannot express the desperation. 3/17

The brazen audacity of pro-TPLF Tigrayans is incredible. “How can #Eritreans|ns forget their bitter struggle against #DERG and side with #Amhara to wage war against their Tigrayan brothers?” they ask. Unreal!
Obviously, the question itself is flawed on so many levels, but I will get to that point later. First, how is it that their own egregious transgressions against #Eritrea never register in their mind? Have they voluntarily wiped their memory of the last 24 years?
Pro-TPLF Tigrayans don’t seem to remember how in 1998 #terroristsTPLF deliberately stirred preexisting anti-Eritrea sentiments and rallied every Ethiopian ethnic group under a false flag of border dispute.

It seems to me the #TPLF ’ers have forgotten why they were kicked out by #Ethiopians. So, in order to remind #TPLF ’ers the #TPLFcrimes & educate the TPLF digital army, I am opening this Twitter thread. Please write at least 3 crimes of TPLF you remember. #Ethiopia #Eritrea
I will start with the recent ones, and let's cover the whole 27+ years. The #TPLFcrimes I remember include:
1) Attack on Northern command (2020)
2) MaiKardra massacre (2020)
3) Rocket attack on #Eritrea, #BahirDar (2020)

Please use #TPLFcrimes #Ethiopia #Eritrea, inlude year
Starting the war with #Eritrea and deporting #Eritreans because they did not like the "colour of their eyes"..#Ethiopia #Eritrea #TPLFcrimes

Today’s #Yiakl #SundaySpotlight goes out to Lidiya T @KitchaFitFit1 in acknowledgment of her consistent, creative and pragmatic actions that she undertakes to support #Eritrean refugees in #Libya.

#Yiakl #WeAreComingHome #Eritrea2020 ImageImage
Lidiya is a 21 years old prominent activist & organizer who has been passionately involved with her Eritrean community from a very young age.

Ever since she witnessed the daunting & overwhelming plight of Eritrean refugees in Libya, Lidiya got determined not to sit back & watch.
Instead, she picked up the slack left by the organizations which simply abandoned these refugees, and found a way to provide financial and moral support to these refugees and make meaningful contributions to help ease their suffering.

#WeAreComingHome #Eritrea2020 ImageImage
Semhar started her activism in 2013/2014 when she was still in Asmara working in an Internet Cafe. Her courage and access to the internet gave her the opportunity to air her frustrations and post about the situation in #Eritrea on Facebook.

In 2014, when she decided to leave #Eritrea by crossing the border, she was caught at one of the Tesenei checkpoints until she finally managed to escape from the temporary prison by running for 3 hours & eventually making it to #Sudan.

Today’s #Yiakl #SundaySpotlight goes out to the organizers of the project #MissingEritreans in acknowledgment of their initiative to tackle one of the most daunting but critical tasks of documenting Missing #Eritreans and working hard to reunite separated families. #Eritrea ImageImage
The project currently uses web application (Rediet.org - under construction now), traditional media (through a program in @ERISAT3) & social media (FB & YT) to assist #Eritreans in search of their loved ones whose status remains unknown.

For this special March 8 #WomensDay edition of #Yiakl #SundaySpotlight, we have chosen a very special person – a living heroine who embodies everything that is inspiring about #Eritrea's women: Mama Abeba Tesfagiorgis Baatai. ImageImage
Mama Abeba’s awe-inspiring activism and work of more than six decades, starting from the rebellious Asmarino young school-girl of the 1960s to the exiled gracefully greying grandma of today, provides a much-needed inspiration for all #Eritrean girls & women. ImageImage
In the following thread, we will attempt to do the impossible by focusing on a few milestones taken out of the impressive fat dossier of Mama Abeba.

Today's #Yiakl #SundaySpotlight goes out to Abrar Osman in acknowledgment of his long-standing unwavering faith, integrity and pure love for #Eritrea and #Eritreans through his work.

#Eritrea2020 #SundaySpotlight
#Yiakl #WeAreComingHome ImageImage
Abrar Osman’s lifetime accumulated work has become, to borrow the words of the poet Kahlil Gibran, ‘...love made visible’

“It is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from your heart, even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth.

...
...
It is to build a house with affection, even as if your beloved were to dwell in that house.

It is to sow seeds with tenderness & reap the harvest with joy, even as if your beloved were to eat the fruit.”
