In a notorious security raid in September 2001, Eight chief editors of free press dailies and other 20 journalists were rounded up and taken to unknown places. This last move which was preceded by harassment and terror killed the nascent press freedom and the right of free speech in newly born Eritrea.

Strangulation of free press by unelected government in Asmara for more than a decade has placed Eritrea at the bottom of the international  list of countries which ban free press.

As we express our bold solidarity with our colleagues who committed no other crime than practicing their undeniable professional and national rights and simply ended up in dungeon, we appeal to all peace-loving peoples and organization to stand up for their moral responsibilities  towards the atrocities committed by Asmara regime against the Eritrean people every day.

We call all peace loving nations to remember and act in favor our colleagues who are deprived for more than 13 years of enjoying these festivities with their beloved.

Free all the prisons of conscience in Eritrea, Now!!
