name is Araia G. Ephrem, and I'm an Eritrean-American living in
California, USA. I am one of the many Eritrean-Americans who supported
ESAT since its inception. Also, I was a contributor in ECADF political
PalTalk chat room.
I follow your programs consistently, and I applaud your success in reaching a vast majority of the Ethiopia public.
I am alarmed at your absence in attempting to constantly educate the
Ethiopian public about Eritrea's sovereignty. Although, it may not be
ESAT's mandate, I strongly believe that ESAT should correct many
incorrect information decimated by Ethiopian officials disregarding
facts about Eritrean sovereignty, Eritrean flag and Eritrean map. These
misguiding in-corrections come constantly by posting wrong maps of
Eritrea and Ethiopia; stating false history of the Eritrean struggle and
etc. I've not heard ESAT attempt to challenge such in-corrections and
educate the public.
Such incorrect facts are highly offensive to
Eritreans living everywhere in the globe. Furthermore, it may give young
Ethiopian generation a wrong concept of the ongoing coordinated effort
to bring a lasting peace in the Horn of Africa. Actually, at times it
seems it's done deliberately and it could nurture future wars between
the Eritrean and Ethiopian coming generations.
belief is, ESAT doesn't stand for such ugly future, and all its effort
has so far mended many fences between the Eritrean and Ethiopian people.
However; if we continuously slight such wrongs, then it may create
havoc in the future of the region. This is specially concerning when
incorrect maps are posted by formidable persons of your organization
such as Tamagne Beyene and Mesay Kebede.
In fact, the Ethiopian Ambassador to the UK twitted the celebration of Marathon runners in Dubai. He actually posted a picture showing Ethiopian fans declaring an Ethiopian map inclusive of Eritrean map. After a response from many Eritreans, the twitter post was removed. Must we go through such unproductive mind set.
Your thorough attention is required and a must in this regard. I will appreciate your prompt response regarding this matter.
