Today, New York City has been rocked by something extraordinary.  Most New Yorkers were forced to ask themselves if they have missed the day’s breaking news after baffled to find all roads to the Manhattan Center, one of New York’s most elegant and versatile special event destinations, has been shut down for sometime.

Different reports indicating there were thousands of Eritreans from across Canada and North America flocked all the way to New York to attend the much anticipated public seminar made by their President, Isaias Afwerki.

TesfaNews has learnt the seminar was a complete success and for that we would like to extend our gratitude to all the organizers of this historic and successful event as well as to the hero president and his delegates.

We are going to keep you update whenever we got relevant pictures and video material of the seminar.

The short amature video below shows the last sweet moments for the thousands of Eritreans who were left outside of the hall due to over capacity.

The crowd went crazy with uncontrollable cheer and happiness when they see PIA heading towards them by defying and shrugging off NYPD and FBI security personnel. It was a sweet pay off moment to the thousands who waited for so long to see and hear him out.
