Eri bloodThe YPFDJ - the youth wing of Eritrea's ruling party - is planning to hold a European wide conference in the Netherlands from the 13th to 17th of April.

The local Eritrean community is worried - previous YPFDJ rallies have been marked by violence and intimidation.

The regime has deployed thugs from 'Eri-blood' to attack dissenters in the past.

An appeal has been launched to appeal for the Dutch authorities to halt the gathering [see below]

An Appeal to The Dutch-Eritrean Community

Action to Foil the YPFDJ European Conference in Holland

From next Thu, 13/4 to Sun 17/.4/17, the Isaias regime has organized a European wide conference for Youth-Pfdj, its daughter organization. The Dutch authorities, including the media, are wary of this conference because it has elements inviting antagonism, that pose danger to peace and order of the Dutch public.

 

This is a call to all Dutch-Eritreans, whether or not, we are citizens, residents, and refugees, to use our rights, to formally register, with the police, a declaration (‘aangifte’) that the Ypfdj, poses danger to our personal safety. Because what should worry us, also worries Dutch authorities, including several parliament members (2de Kamer), and the security. Issues about the Ypfdj may cause harm to Eritreans and the Dutch.

1. That Ypfdj thugs are going door-to-door, forcing Eritreans to pay money for this conference and for 2%.

2. That they are issuing false “receipts” without legal details, means they are hiding their actions from public.

3. That they are putting on a black list and intimidating those Eritreans that refuse to pay;

4. That the infamous “Eri-Blood” gang, which is feared to be armed, is capable of physically harming anyone;

5. That a Dutch court, established last year, that Ypfdj, as a possible ‘intelligence arm” of Isaias; the public speech of Yemane G/Ab, at Ypfdj conference in Germany, being the major evidence of it.

6. That all of this has been organized, in December 2016, by high ranking officials of the regime.

Etc., etc., because of all the above, is this Ypfdj conference, is a threat to, us, Dutch-Eritreans.

That is why, we should, go and declare this facts to the police. We are being threatened by phone and in person as “traitors”. The reasons are laid down above. Let us exercise this right of ours immediately, but in any case, before the conference commences. Let us support the effort of the Dutch authorities by coming out to register officially our fear of the situation.

Your brother, Kubrom Dafla Hosabay,

Nb. if for any reason, the police refuse to receive your declaration (“aangifte”), please let us know as we have, legal help by our side. Contact: +31-6-8534-1768, email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
