A protest letter written on November 15, 1962

 

August 25, 2017

On November 14, 1962, Ethiopia unilaterally abrogated the UN mandated Ethiopia-Eritrea Federation and annexed Eritrea. Even though there were other protest letter  written during the Federal Period (1952-1962), however, the letter below is written a day after the above mentioned date.

The letter poses lots of questions for historians and researchers in the future. What is interesting is that at the end of the letter, the petitioners presented the sequence of events that led to that infamous date.

The letter was written by and signed by the officials of the All Youth and Student Federation of Eritrea to the officials of the United States National Student Association (Attn: International Commission). U.S. National Student Association was founded in Wisconsin in 1947 and was a student government body of students of various American colleges and universities. 

The reply to the letter was sent by the international commission (U.S. National Student Association's international students office) a year letter.

 

 

 

Below is the reply to the above protest letter.
