Eritrea: Commemorating Martyrs Day Through Planting Tree Seedlings Sound Way of Bequeathing National Values, Say Inhabitants of Central Region

Asmara — The inhabitants of the Central region said that commemoration of Martyrs Day on the basis of planting tree seedlings is a sound way of bequeathing national values to the young generation in connection with wide-ranging campaigns they conducted to this end.

During an afforestation venture they conducted yesterday around Emba-Derho area in connection with the event, the employees of the Ministry of Agriculture indicated that such activity should be pursued as a norm and popularized among the young generation.

Mr. Huruy Asgedom, director general of extension department in the Ministry, and Mr. Abraha Garza, head of the Forestry and Wildlife Authority, pointed out that the planting of seedlings is symbolic to national independence as the living behest of the fallen heroes. He further noted the impact such campaigns could have in ensuring environmental stability, and called on the inhabitants to follow up the seedlings thus planted.

Likewise, Lt. Colonel Yosef Haile and Mr. Tekeste Woldetinsae voiced moral satisfaction with reiterating their pledge of honoring the trust of martyrs through taking part in the undertaking.

Meanwhile, the residents of Arbaete-Asmara, Akria, Edaga-Arbi, Edaga-Hamus and City Center Administrative areas, as well as 600 youth workers carried out similar tasks in the same site along with members of the People's Army.
