During its General Council meeting, which took place from 23-25 May 2012 in Harhare, Zimbabwe, the World Federation of Democratic Youth (WFDY) called for the immediate annulment of the unjust sanctions imposed on Eritrea, and that the final and binding decision of the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission be respected in its political resolution.

 

The National Union of Eritrean Youth and Students (NUEYS) participated in this important meeting not just as a member of the WFDY General Council but also as the WFDY Regional Coordinator for Africa.

 

The aim of the General Council meeting was to proceed with the efforts of implementing the decisions made at the 18th Assembly of WFDY, which took place in November 2012. Organized under the theme “Youth Struggle against Imperialism: We Choose Our Own Future,” the GC discussed organizational affairs, the Report on Activities and the Plan of Action until the next GC meeting. Included in this plan of action is WFDY’s participation in the East Africa Youth Forum, which will take place in Asmara from 7-13 July 2012, and the 5th Eri-Youth Festival, which will take place in Sawa from 13-15 July 2012.

 

Besides enhancing NUEYS’ relations with the ZANU-PF Youth League of Zimbabwe, ANC Youth League of South Africa and other progressive youth movements in Africa, discussions took place with the National Secretary for Youth Affairs in Zimbabwe, Mr. A. Sikhosana.

 

On the 25th of May, there was a tour to the National Heroes Acre and various development sites. It was also on that day that Africa Day celebrations took place.

To spread awareness on the prevailing situation in the Horn of Africa/East Africa

To make suggestions towards developing an effective strategy for regional and international cooperation, integration, friendship and mutual understanding.

Implementation and realization of the African Youth Charter

Accelerating youth empowerment for sustainable development through active youth participation in the African Youth Decade (2009-2018)

 

This regional youth forum will take place right before the 5th Eri-Youth Festival (13-15 July 2012), a bi-annual festival organized to celebrate the achievements and valuable role of Eritrean youth in nation building, development and in preserving national unity. All participants of the forum are more than welcome to participate in this festival.
