Mussie Tesfamichael was an Eritrean hero who sacrificed his life struggling against the mushrooming destructive leadership of Issayas Afeworki & his cronies!


This rare picture is of the revolutionary Eritrean, Mussie Tesfamichael, taken as he was giving political education to his fellow freedom fighters.

Mussie was a very dedicated, far-sighted, militant, and progressive Eritrean freedom fighter. He joined the Eritrean armed struggle in the late Sixties and initiated and led a rectification movement within the Popular Liberation Forces (PLF) in the Seventies with the intent of democratising the organisation.

However, Issayas Afeworki and his clique maliciously dubbed the movement as menkaa (anarchist). Subsequently, its ringleaders were arrested and murdered in cold blood by Issayas Afeworki and his close associates.

Eternal glory to all the martyred victims of the Eritrean fascist dictator and his criminal associates.
