Eritrea Demonstration. If You Are Free ...

While imprisoned in a shipping container, God gave Helen Berhane a new song, enabling her to endure the beatings, torture and imprisonment designed to break her and destroy her faith. Helen was eventually released after a severe and debilitating assault and was able to flee the country.  Others aren’t as fortunate.  Thousands of Eritreans of all faiths and none are currently imprisoned without charge, trial or prospect of release, and unknown numbers have died in detention.
 
Join us on 18 May to protest the continuing violations and to remember those still in prison.

It’s now 15 years since the Eritrean government shut down churches from all but three denominations and began a campaign of mass arrests that also affects members of permitted denominations.

On Thursday 18 May, CSW will be joining with Church in Chains, the Evangelical Alliance,  Human Rights Concern Eritrea, the Medhani Alem Eritrean Orthodox Church and Release Eritrea to protest the continuing repression suffered by the people of Eritrea, and to pray for change. We would be delighted if you could join us.
