    Thank you Oakland North TV for looking into the real issue and spreading the truth. Its hard to fight the glamorous mainstream propaganda with wholesome news, but that’s what Oak North TV and Eritreans are up against. Its easy to feed people sweets and sugars instead of hearty fruits and vegetables. Keep it up! I stand 110% with Eritrea and the direction it is moving towards!

    What election are they talking about?
    There has never been an election in Eritrea.
    This country does not Even have a constitution.
    It’s one man’s government.
    Our youth fleeing the country left and right.
    People langushing in prisons without any court dates.
    Bottom line ask these people what are they doing here? If the country is fine and dandy GO BACK AND LIVE THERE.
