For the past one or two decades we have witnessed numerous Eritrean opposition groups or parties in Diaspora appeared and disappeared. Some due to the lack of legitimacy and others due to the lack of their strategy on how to reach Eritreans in Diaspora and at home to create civic mined society that will bridge the gap of the Eritreans throughout the world.

Of course not all the groups has disappeared , there are many exist. In fact some of them are going to declare national conference in Ethiopia and others in Germany This strategy indeed is very good one, the question is, will it work?


As this time a new Eritrean civic democratic movement is emerging and it seems they have all the answers on how Eritreans can be united in a civic mined approach with unique ides.

For the last six month members E.C.D.M have been behind curtains to craft and shape the idea of civic demecratic movement, now the time has come to present it and face the public.


What is in the coffer of E.C.D.M or what makes this movement unique than the others.

First and foremost, although their stand is firm on change in Eritrea from the present dictatorial government is needed by a peaceful manner, but that peaceful solution of change they are sure not to remain as word but act on it in civil manner, that means they have the peaceful solution in their coffer. At the same time they make it clear, that, their aim is no to grub the power, rather to facilitate to who over comes into power to lead the future Eritrea in harmony, provide is democratic elected leadership or to a group who are becoming the transitional government of Eritrea, by forwarding the warkable civic mined platform or the so called road map of civic democratic ideas. Of course decision have to be by the people of Eritrea at home on how they want be governed.


The uniqueness of this group is overwhelming, for example; unlike their counter parts, that many different groups or parties work under one umbrella, with preserving their past identities. Contrary, in order to be part of of Eritrean Civic Democratic Movement, one have to denounce his/her past parties or groups membership. In other words with E.C.D.M dual membership is not permitted.


This unique idea brought together young and veteran Eritreans from different political parties to contribute their input as individuals not as a party members. This unique approach, that has never been tried in the past seems the only solution to solve the puzzle of Eritreans in Diaspora.


After six months to come out to the public one might wonder by saying what took them longer?

Although this is legit and good question, those dedicated people day and night were covering the hall issues on how a nation to be lead under Democratic elected leadership, and not to fail the dream of Eritreans as others did in the past.


Start form the frame of the transitional government, elected President, the rule of law, justice, individual equality and liberty,Ethio-Eritrean conflict without compromissing territorial integrity, Socio-economy, foreign relations,equal pay of equal work to all genders, public relation, allocation of national resources and many other things.


Keep open mind and eyes and look for their declaration, that will be followed after short period their framework.

One cannot wait to see them debate in the public their role as a movement and their contribution on the future democratic nation of Eritrea

Thank you.
