We, the concerned Eritreans who live in the United States of America are holding a rally against Christian persecution in Eritrea. Christian Eritreans are being harassed, persecuted and detained for the only reason of their belief in Jesus Christ. We believe that freedom of religion is one of the basic rights of any human being. The Eritrean government is not only violating international human rights declaration that the country is party to but also the provisions of article 19 of its unimplemented Constitution. Therefore, we call up on all peace and freedom loving Eritreans, friends of Eritrea and the International community to join us as we express our concern to the already detained prisoners of conscience and those who are at the risk of such illegal detention. Let us join our hands together with those in chains because of their beliefs. We believe that these Christians are incarcerated for the sole reason of their religious persuasion. We would therefore urgently request that all those who are incarcerated for their religious beliefs be released immediately; that all independent churches be re-opened without pre-condition; Express your solidarity to this call by signing the petition below and join us as we rally for this noble cause. Release Eritrea-USA Date: May 25, 2005. Place: Outside the Eritrean Embassy 1708 New Hampshire Avenue NW, Washington DC 20009 Time: 11:00am ET

    Comments: Thank you persecutors for helping increase the number of Eritrean Christians by making them more fervent, just like The Chinese government has done in China since Chairman Mao took over in 1949, and like the ancient Roman government did before Constantine b ecame a Christian.
