AGE to participate in the forthcoming Public Meeting (Press Release – December 2007)

We are pleased to announce that the Action Group for Eritrea will participate in the public meeting that will be held in London on the 08th of December 2007. The purpose of the meeting is to mobilise Eritreans to demand justice and galvanize support in defence of their country from aggression. We believe that this meeting will give us the opportunity to advance AGE's objectives in line with our terms of reference, which include:

1.  Lobby and campaign the international community in general and the British Government in particular to put pressure on Ethiopia to immediately implement the rulings of the Boundary Commission.

2. Promote and facilitate actions focused on defending the territorial integrity of Eritrea that has been materialised through long struggle and upheld by international law. To achieve the above, we intend to make a brief presentation about AGE and our activities.

We plan to use the opportunity to wage another intensive lobbying campaign.  In this regard, a petition letter has been prepared to be submitted to the Office of the Prime Minister after the public meeting.  The draft petition letter can be found here.  We ask all Eritreans and non-Eritreans to assist in making this campaign successful by distributing the letter and getting as many people as possible to sign the petition using this form.
