The Eritrean Martyr's Tree!

The idea of the Eritrean Martyr's Tree was one of the most dynamically achievable ideas. It was not just a simple idea, but an invention. The Sudanese journalist Khalid Mohammed Osman has invented this idea to clean and rehabilitate the environment after the longest war in Africa, because he knows the patriot Eritrean people very well and he knows the history of their struggle and how they are open to inventions.

He knows all of that because he was one of its witnesses and even participants, He was connected with the Eritrean People's Liberation Front (EPLF) during the liberation of Eritrea and when this front has launched in the seventieth.

And then he joined the rehabilitation and the rebuilding of the new state after the independence in 1991. He wrote about this idea long ago, while he was implementing it, in so many Eritrean pages on the Eritrean newspapers and on the Horn Africas Network.

From the Eritrean Martyr's Tree he invented the idea of the Sudanese Martyr's Tree.

The following new article is just an assignment he has done in one of the educational institutions.

The idea as you can follow from the grounds of Eritrea is the first of its kind in the world, despite the "shit" of many international sources that just steal ideas and work some projects from it and expose all of that, without any mention, or reference to the creator of the idea / the inventor. - Martyr’s Tree in Eritrean Barka School in Asmara.

The Martyr’s Tree!

I chose this topic because it has amazing positive impacts on the global environment, which still faces many risks.

These risks are the outcome of improper economical and military planning, which industrially attacks the Ozone and militarily makes destructive artilleries and space and nuclear weapons, all of which endanger our lives daily.

In addition, I chose it to show how the global people can make huge difference even only from one single idea.

The Martyr's Tree is Environmental Approach in Asmara!

As important public event in Eritrea’s history and thus the history of the regional environment in East Africa and the world, the idea of the Martyr’s Tree has solved the degradation of the Eritrean environment, which has been affected badly by the longest war in Africa and the idea contributed to the enhancement of the overall milieu in the African regional area in the Horn of Africa and the world.

Two Factors Contributed to The Martyr's Tree!

The idea of the martyr’s tree has emerged from two factors: the human factor and the environmental factor.

The Eritrean people had lost about half a million humans in the liberation war. The entire new state of Eritrea after the liberation of the country in 1991 appeared to have been degraded badly and there were a lot of broken weapons, chemicals, unexploded mines underground and human remains everywhere.

Therefore, the idea of the martyr’s tree with its two factors was the first of its kind in human history to achieve two goals from a single idea.

How Was the Idea of The Martyr’s Tree Accomplished?

The idea was appropriate and achievable because almost every family has lost one of its members in the liberation war. Therefore, it was clear that every family will participate in the transplanting of a tree in the name of the daughter or son who was martyred for the sake of his country.

So, the idea of the martyr’s tree started from this human / social factor and there were media tools that contributed to the popularity of the idea, as it was covered by the media, which has explained its vitality and how to implement it.

In addition, the environmental activist who came up with this idea contributed to bringing together the media and all trade unions, including youth and student unions around the idea through personal visits, meetings and numerous dialogues about its benefits to the local, regional and international community.

Fabulous Achievement!

The martyr's tree has been planted on national occasions and family occasions, with each family starting a tree planting on their special occasions such as marriage, birth, and even for those who have died.

According to published statistics, the Eritrean people have planted 5,000,000 martyr’s trees, in addition to family trees in every family occasion.

Conclusion: Cheering Up and Rising Above!

There was no idea in the world about the Martyr’s Tree that time. The Eritrean Martyr’s Tree was the first.

When this idea was published offline and online, many businesses and organizations have taken it to work some projects around it and write about it, without even a simple reference to the creator of this idea.

This is the first notice to register that there’s neither credibility, nor transparency in this world, regarding this specific invention.

That hurts me, as an activist and would hurt anyone out there who cares about credibility and transparency.

As for the essential project, I can observe that dynamically invented ideas prove to have great achievements in this context. The enhancement of the local environment reflects on the enhancement of regional and global environment.

As they say, “act locally, think globally” proves to be supreme valuable element in global integrity, as it proves its effectiveness.

I told you, there is no transparency in this world. No credibility too.
