Eritrea’s birthday, 24th May 1991, is a date that binds Eritreans together. The struggle of the Eritrean people is a productive struggle to establish lasting peace and complete independence. The struggle for independence assured the victory of peace and liberty over the forces of oppression. Through proper organisation and guidance, the people of Eritrea have become an impregnable force capable of exerting legitimate pressure available to realize its dream. Eritrea has struggled long with determination to rid itself of the yoke of colonisation and exploitation. The Eritrean people who have struggled and made untold sacrifices for their independence and freedom are now on the eve of celebrating the 30th anniversary of Independence Day.
