ON THE OCCASION OF THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE EEBC DECISION

THE EEBC DECISION TEN YEARS LATER AND ETHIOPIA'S ILLEGAL OCCUPATION:
ON THE OCCASION OF THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE EEBC DECISION
By Haddish Goitom

April 13th is the 10th anniversary of the first in the EEBC final and binding delimitation and demarcation Decisions. These decisions have not been implemented and they seem to have been totally ignored by the UN Security Council the rest of the world. But as people of repeated UN injustice we remember this Day too; it will never be forgotten.

Especially, now after the Ethiopian's recent loud and boisterous announcements of violations against Eritrea's sovereignty and territorial integrity which again has been ignored by the Security Council and the rest of the world. We request to the Security Council to enforce the international law and the Eritrea Ethiopia Boundary Commission's (EEBC) final and binding delimitation and demarcation decisions.

At the same time we denounce the UN sanctions and we will fight to reverse these unjust and extremely reckless resolutions: 1907(2009) and 2023 (2011). We call for an immediate lifting of the unjust Sanctions against Eritrea based on proved lies.

We would also like to declare that we, Diaspora Eritreans contribute -with joy and pride- the symbolic 2% rehabilitation tax for rebuilding and improvement of living conditions of our people. We shall never allow our population to wait for handouts. Our joy also comes from the fact that, the diligent work of the Eritrean people and the devotion of the Eritrean government is effectively using our small contribution towards food security, equitable distribution of educational opportunity and health services. We in fact believe our 2% is too little to a government that has worked hard to reduce child morality, improve maternal health, combat HIV, eradicate malaria polio and ensure environmental sustainability successfully. Our pride also comes from the fact that the government of Eritrea and the Eritrean people are rebuilding their country in perfect harmony. Such constructive actions and engagements should be normally encouraged by every human being.

Finally we, the Eritrean people, strongly deplore all Security Council actions against the Eritrean people which are all unjust and extremely reckless. Therefore we still call for Justice and Constructive Engagement.

Unity is Strength - We Stand United for our beloved Mother Land Eritrea
