The Independence Day of Eritrea is one of the most important public holidays in the country. It is observed on May 24 every year. On this day in 1991, Eritrean People’s Liberation Front forces moved into the capital Asmara, reinstating independence, following a 30-year war against the Ethiopian military regime. Eritrea Independence Day is a national holiday, with workers given a day off.
Dina Mufti (Spokesperson of the Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia) today (30/03/2021) said that most Eritreans are not happy about and don’t celebrate Independence Day.
