Saturday the 25th 2015, Eritreans and Ethiopians held a candle vigil night in Oakland (Lake Merritt) to remember the 350 Eritreans who perished in the Mediterranean Sea on April 15, for Ethiopians and Eritreans who were brutally massacred by ISIS in Libya,  and those Africans who fell victim to xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

People gathered in the Candle Vigil expressed their deep shock and sadness over these recent events that left us horrified not only as Africans, but as human beings in this world.

Some of the participants delivered their messages and outlined the universal right of every human being to be treated with dignity on our planet, regardless of their background and wished love and understanding among all.

At last participants prayed may the victim souls rest in peace and may their families find the strength to deal with the loss of a loved one under such inhumane circumstances.
