Eritreans never ever forgive TPLF -EP’s Editorial: We Remember Shambuko Martyrs Cemetery
20 June 2019 (EP) – Eritreans were angered when TPLF led Ethiopian government desecrated the Shambuko village’s Martyrs Cemetery in summer days in 2000.
What shocked the Eritreans the most was the place was the burial place of 180 martyrs (pictured) who had fought during the war of liberation, and who had fought alongside the Dedebit rebels.
Even the bones of our martyrs had been dug up by TPLF and left strewn on the surface.
WE WILL NEVER EVER FORGET THAT
Meanwhile, the memories of the tens of thousands who died are kept very much alive, especially on Martyrs’ Day, on 20 June, when people light candles and hold solemn processions.
We also thank the new Ethiopian Prime Minister Dr Abiy Ahmed for his kind words (pictured) in the memory of our fallen heroes.
