Reflections on ‘Hamid Idris Awate 1915-1962’

By  Simon Weldemichael | On 1st September 2020, Eritreans celebrated the 59th anniversary of the beginning of the armed struggle for independence, which was initiated by Hamid Idris Awate. Not long ago, HDRI publishers published Awate’s biography, ‘Hamid Idris Awate 1915-1962’, and the 59th anniversary of the armed struggle presents a wonderful occasion to reflect on the book.

‘Hamid Idris Awate 1915-1962’ is a pioneering work written by Haileslasie Weldu, a former journalist of Dimtsi Hafash and a freedom fighter during the struggle for independence. The origins of the present volume lie in an article about Hamid Idris Awate written in November 1983. The author spent 35 years to write about the life of Hamid Idris Awate. He pored over all the available literature on the topic and interviewed 65 persons who knew Awate. The diligence and high standard of the author are reflected in the 410 footnotes scattered throughout the book, which is well-written and easy to follow. Read more

September 1st: a Road to Liberty and Dignity

September 1st: a Road to Liberty and Dignity

By Simon Weldemichael | On Tuesday, September 1st 2020, the 59th anniversary of the beginning of the armed struggle for independence was celebrated.

When European colonialism was abolished in Eritrea, contrary to the wishes of the Eritrean people, Eritrea was thrown to a federal contract with Ethiopia and plunged into the darkness of feudal Ethiopia after the United Nations passed the federal resolution on December 2, 1950. The federation lasted for ten years and was followed by Ethiopia’s annexation of Eritrea.

The violation of the federal arrangement by Ethiopia and the silence of the international community left the people of Eritrea with no choice other than starting an armed struggle for independence. After 71 years of humiliation, on September 1st, 1961, Hamid Idris Awate announced the beginning of the war of liberation. Hamid Idris Awate. Awate is venerated by Eritreans as the founding father of the struggle. As a tribute to his deeds, many government and private institutions have been named after Awate and a statue erected in Haikota, Gash Barka region. Read more

شكل إشعال كوكبة من أبناء ارتريا الأشاوس لشرارة الكفاح المسلح في أول سبتمبر من عام 1961 بقيادة الشهيد البطل حامد إدريس عواتي، منعطفا تاريخيا فاصلا في المسيرة التاريخية للشعب الارتري، بحيث يمكن القول بأن هذا المنعطف التاريخي لا يعدو أن يكون في جوهر الأمر نهاية مرحلة تاريخية وبداية مرحلة تاريخية وفاتحة مرحلة تاريخية مستقبلية. فكما هو معروف لدى معشر الارتريين ولدى الذين لهم إحاطة عامة بتاريخ ارتريا المعاصر، بأن الشعب الارتري كان من المفروض والمفترض أن يمارس حقه الشرعي والمشروع في تقرير المصير وينال استقلاله على غرار بقية المستعمرات الايطالية في أفريقيا، أي ليبيا والصومال، وذلك بعد هزيمة ايطاليا الفاشية في ارتريا أبان الحرب الكونية الثانية على يد جيش الحلفاء في عام 1941.
