A Look Back at The Battle of Nakfa

the battle of Nakfa
During the Silver Jubliee Anniversary month, it is important to commemorate all of the great battles that took place during the armed struggle for independence. The Battle of Nakfa that took place during the summer of 1979 was the most decisive of all wars the EPLF has ever had as losing that battle means losing the liberation struggle once and for all.

By Breket Kidane,

If you are an Eritrean, Nakfa is at or near the top as far as patriotic shrines go. So much so that the national currency was named after it to commemorate its historical and psychological importance to the armed struggle for Eritrea’s Independence.

Throughout the armed struggle for independence, Nakfa remained an Eritrean stronghold and never fell to the enemy. It was the headquarters of the Eritrean People’s Liberation Front (EPLF). Nakfa is where the EPLF’s network of underground hospitals, factories, garages, training centers and just about all of its infrastructure was located.

The Eritrean Camel Marches Confidently Ahead to the Future

In defiance, Eritrea was born; in defiance, it will live forever! Thanks to our resilience and patriotism, our nation is moving ahead with great confidence and excitement to the future

By Tecle Abraham,

THE Eritrean people at home and in the Diaspora have celebrated their 24th independence day colorfully and with great patriotic zeal. It is common knowledge that Eritreans always celebrate in a unique fashion not seen anywhere else in Africa. But I believe this year`s celebration was far more colorful and exciting.

Unlike in the previous celebrations, the atmosphere is filled with real hope and excitement about their future. I have intently watched all the videos across the country and elsewhere. The dancing, the poems, the speeches, entertainment and the active community participation were impressive and electrifying. The enthusiasm and the excitement was there for all to see.

Passionate Global Independence Day Celebrations

This Year’s Independence Day Celebration was like rewarding a Vote of Confidence to the Government of Eritrea

Every Eritrean citizen knows and understands how the country became a reality ... and that's why they celebrated it with zeal and passion

By Kidane Eyob,

Eritreans round the globe including those in remote villages deep inside Eritrea have been celebrating the anniversary of their independence with passion and excitement, somehow uniquely and surprisingly with more energy and vigour than that of 2011 when they celebrated Eritrea’s 20th year independence.

These celebrations have been passionate and genuine and it is evident that they want to convey a loud and clear message to the whole wide world that wherever they are, Eritreans support their people and theirgovernment. Continue reading Passionate Global Independence Day Celebrations
