The political independence of Eritrea will have a true meaning to the Eritrean people only when the Universal Declaration of Human Rights are fully realised in Eritrea. Until these lofty principles of Human Rights are fulfilled, the struggle to dislodge the fascist PFDJ regime must be intensified.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, it set out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected. The Declaration was adopted by the UN General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948.
Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, whatever our nationality, place of residence, sex, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, language, or any other status.
We are all entitled to our human rights without discrimination. These rights are interrelated, interdependent and indivisible.
Yes all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights!
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security!
Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion!
Everyone has the right to education!
Everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to the protection of the moral and material interests resulting from any literary or artistic production of which he or she is the author.
