Setting the record straight on the Martyrs' database

From Welcome to Asmarino Independent. Thu Dec 27 2012, 23:05:54

When Awate.com wanted to display the martyrs' database they obtained from Eritrea on their Martyrs Album[1998-2003], they asked the help of Asmarino.com. Tes converted  some excel spreadsheets provided by Awate.com  into a Format that allowed the information provided to be displayed on Awate's old home page under Martyrs' Album .  And that was used only for that purpose, except for one case. With Awate.com's consent the data was also used to broadcast the names of the Martyrs on Voice of Delina in 2005 during the week of June 18-30. (Awate's Saleh Gadi participated by reading some of the names himself.)  Eritrean volunteers  from  around the world read the names. Asmarino, at great cost, bought extended air time for three days to broadcast the special program titled 'ድምጽና ሓወልቲ ይኹኖም! ኣስማት ስውኣት 1998-2001'.
