Dear Sir/Madam

I have been aware of something that I will like to bring to your kind attention.

The PFDJ has started a new tactic to threaten activists.  Through one of YPFDJ leaders, it has accused a justice-seeking activist in a court of law. An ex-YPFDJ leader of the Holland branch, Ato Meseret Bahlibi, charges the activist of defamation of character.  The court hearing is coming Wednesday, January 27, 2016 in Amsterdam. The accused justice-seeding activist Professor Mirjam van Reisen.

What Ato Meseret is accusing Prof. Mirjam of is that during an interview she gave to a local radio programme, she said to the effect that YPFDJ is an intellignce arm of the Eritrean dictatorship.  ATo Meseret insists that he or YPFDJ are not an intelligence gathering instrument of the Eritrean regime, but only a cultural youth association.

The Isaias regime, leaves no stones unturned, in order to attack and harass the opposition. Many have shown their solidarity by providing useful evidence to her case. All justice seeking people stand by her and declare their solidarity with her – because her case is our case.  You won’t walk alone! Mirjam.

    Who is the mastermind behind the creation of this fascistic YPFDJ? It is no less than Yemane monkey. As the Hitler Youth Movement, Hitlerjugend was created and controlled by Nazi officials so is YPFDJ created and controlled by PFDJ officials, by HEGDEF MENDEF. As Hitlerjugend is unconstitutional organisation according to German Law so will YPFDJ be unconstitutional organisation under a free of HEGDEF Eritrea with a democratic government chosen by the Eritrean people. We know you too well antom hegdefawian, PERIOD!!!

  • oromay January 27, 2016

    There is no lack of evidence of what YPFDJ has been doing for decades.It has been officially documented.Tge facts even talk themselves.

  • habesha January 28, 2016

    They just opened a can of worms. We should take every PFDJ (HGDEF) supporters to court for labelling us CIA, Tigray, Jihad and defaming our heritage, our credibility, personality and our religion. So thank you HEGDEF the ball is in our court. You shot yourself on your foot and let the show start and we are going to have the last laugh.

      Dear Professor Mirjam

      Thank you for putting up a strong fight for the voiceless Eritrean people who are brutalised with impunity by Isaias and his clique. The truth will always triumph and you are on the side of truth. You are an exemplary person to all of us.

      Eritrea for ever, death to dictatorship.

    Dear Mirjam van Reisen,

    first of all thank You for Your dedication for the Eritrean people.
    I think You should do this to show what is behind ypfdj:

    1) Illustrate that is a POLITICAL organization
    This should be possible by presenting their political aktivities and propaganda (visible allover the www)

    2) Collect information about criminal incidents that were caused by ypfdj:

    -> e.g. in october 2013 when they were trying to stel money from the “Lapedusa survivers) by giving them a fake form, pretending it was by the Italian Government who asks money for blood-checks or something (it was in the newspapers)

    -> the attemps to injure or kill (by car) Eritreans which dont support the regime during the demonstration in italy and the organized hooligans which call their serves “Eritrea blood”

    -> the attemps to injure or kill (by car) Eritreans which dont support the regime during the demonstration in italy in sweden

    -> the mutiple incidents of translaters who bullied asylym seekers or translated something else than what was said (in support of the regime)

    -> the many meetings that were held all over europe and which where platforms for the top propaganda staff of the regime

    After that, present who are the heads of this organization. This will directly link to those who wants to hurt You for saying the truth.

    In the second step You could present everything that is knowm about the regime (Report of the Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in Eritrea; illegal collection of money from Diapora Eritreans…)

    With a lot of admiration and respect

      Nice to hear your voice .

    • Joe January 29, 2016

      Great comment Selamawit2. It is time to bring crippled YPFD down to its knee.

    • selamawit2 February 1, 2016

      Brother Ahmed Saleh, Brother Joe,
      thank You very much for You kind words and for You dedication. One day everything will be fine. All of You, I wish ou well.

      And the ypfdj members are digging their one grave. Once in this organization, that is exactley like a sect, there is no return. They are not allowed to have different opinions, they are not allowed to have a heart nor a brain. And if they dare, they get bullied and worse.
      Wake up you ypfdj members, pfdj is misusing the majority of you as a propaganda machine for the destruction of the Eritrean unity.
      You are young and naive, You think you are defending Eritrean values but in fact You are doing exactley the opposit. Ask Your parents about the fallen heros in You family: What would they have done in such a situation, where Eritreans are becoming victims in their one country? If your parents are honest, they will tell you, that the former heros would be ashamed for You being ypddj.

    Greetings to Mariam
    The anti Peace, justice and law is Always threatening this values. The most shameful is those who enjoy these values deny thier countrymen these virtues.
    I am sure you are brave enough supported by milions (the open and silent)Eritreans World wide following the case thoroughly and aproving your steps with honour and respect.
    One day not long but soon you will adress us proudly your share of struggle when Peace duly comes home in Eritrea.
    Peace and Peace loving World citizen

  • Sase Naim January 29, 2016

    Ato Meseret Bahlibi, shame on you!

    You are living in a democratic country where you have the opportunity to charge the activist of “defamation of character”.

    If you have the moral ground to defend the notorious YPFDJ, why don’t you the same moral ground to defend the Eritrean people in general and our heroes and heroines who are languishing in HEGDEF’s prisons with no charge at all in particular.

    You are simply a sellout, who will do whatever it takes to please your boss, the EVIL ISAYAS. Have no doubt that one day HEGDEF officials and people like you will face the court of law and get your sentences and that judgment day is not far away.

    Dear mirjam van reisen
    Thank you for your kindenes and for your helping us i can not explain for your great work actually we are said of you ..

  • tekle January 29, 2016

    i think it is unlogical to say ypfdj as cultural community if it represents only one party.

  • Smon January 29, 2016

    YPFDJ has nothing about culture. Culture is sth social and for the good of the society. In fact, the source and nature of Eritrean Culture is telling truth. We were standing for truth. But, the dictatorial part PFDJ and the YPFDJ has nothing of this. PFDJ have the culture of hypocrcy. Starting, from the president, kept lying to the people of Eritrea for 25 years. YPFDJ has become it adimrar to lay. Hence, they are having a culture of lying.
    Authentic man is expected to stand up for truth. Otherwise, the name changes. Hence, Eritrean culture was a love that goes to the extent of giving your life for others life. but, YPFDJ is playing culture of hypocity.

  • Simon G. January 31, 2016

    Our difference is on the terminology. He thinks YFPDJ is a Caltural association but killing people is their culture. I don’t he denies that. So, please be easy on him.
