Heroes of Eritrea

Without their sacrifice, Eritrea and Eritreans would not be standing tall today.

The law of sacrifice says that you cannot get something you want without giving up something in return. Eritrea’s martyrs believed Eritrea’s independence was of a higher value than life itself – their own lives. Facing death, their last words were always, “Awet N’Hafash” – Victory to the People. That’s why nothing in Eritrea can be taken for granted.


Bob Marley once said, “Live for yourself and you will live in vain. Live for others and you will live again”. Eritrea’s martyrs did not live for themselves. They lived for us and for future generations of Eritreans. They gave up their lives so that we can proudly live as a sovereign people in a free nation. That is why they continue to live in us and will always remain vivid in our national memory. Continue reading Heroes of Eritrea

Eritrea’s Unshakable Gratitude and Commitment to Martyrs and Veterans

First they ignore us, then they malign us, then they attack us then we win. It is in our proud Eritrean history to accomplish victory even if the odds comes in different forms and venue

By Amanuel Biedemariam,

THE thirty year struggle for the Independence of Eritrea has cemented a legacy and history of valor unseen anywhere.

The history is based on stories of a nation that marched forward regardless of the hurdles and stumbling blocks. These are stories of bravery of people that marched forward burying the martyrs on the spot and en-route to certain victory. These are stories of gallantry by those that marched nonstop while drenched with blood and carrying the wounded to safety. They forged ahead eying the future with one thing in mind, Independence. No matter what happened along the way, Eritrea marched forward and won Independence beating all odds and ensured international recognition.

Celebrating Eritrea’s Military Service and Veterans

Honoring Eritrean veterans is a historic responsibility of the current Eritrean generation

By Amanuel Biedemariam,

It is easy to argue that all Eritreans in and out of Eritrea are veterans. Nearly every Eritrean has taken part on liberating and defending Eritrea in one form or another.  This article however, will focus on those veterans that struggled to liberate and defend Eritrea.

Eritrea is very connected to the martyrs that died to liberate and defend the nation. The martyrs of Eritrea are honored in a manner that they deserve. However, the idea of honoring Eritrea’s veterans has so far been, one can say, not addressed with the urgency it deserves. Continue reading Celebrating Eritrea’s Military Service and Veterans

Shida: The one that Bore Eritrea’s Triumphs and Tribulations

Make-No-Mistake! The SHIDA remains our symbol of Eritreanism … an icon for respect to those who lost their lives for us, the new generation…

By Sophia Tesfamariam,

The Eritrean People’s Liberation Front (EPLF), hailed as the highest organizational expression of the Eritrean people’s liberation struggle, has few equals. Against all odds, it proved that with a conscious population, a bit of of ingenuity and unparalleled sacrifice, it was possible to defeat the largest army in Africa supported by the West and the Soviet Union. In 1991 it liberated Eritrea from the shackles of Ethiopian colonialism, after a bitter 30-year long armed struggle. Continue reading Shida: The one that Bore Eritrea’s Triumphs and Tribulations

The Month Dedicated to the Memory of Eritrean Martyrs

We have unflinching commitment to the unity and sovereignty of the country entrusted by our Martyrs


It’s been a busy last week of May for Eritreans around the world with Independence Day celebrations being held in every corner of this globe.

The month of June, on the other hand, is dedicated to the memory of our martyrs. It’s a quick pivot from a celebratory month on May to a commemorative one in June. Independence Day and Martrys’ Day are held in back-to-back months for a reason. It’s meant to remind us that the Independence Day we joyfully celebrated in May was a direct result of the incredible sacrifice of our martyrs and fallen heroes we commemorate in June.  Continue reading The Month Dedicated to the Memory of Eritrean Martyrs
