This year's anniversary is significant, as it's the first time the country's border with Ethiopia is at peace following last year's agreement by the two countries to end their war.

Eritreans have shown their support of Haddish's Eritrean citizenship on Twitter while voicing their hopes that she will speak out against some of the regime's policies and actions.

A Human Rights Watch report from 2017 stated that "physical abuse, including torture" occurs frequently for people taking part in national service, and "so does forced domestic servitude and sexual violence by commanders against female conscripts."

Tiffany Haddish cancels Atlanta show over abortion law.
Actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish has canceled her upcoming Atlanta performance because of Georgia's new restrictive abortion law. News outlets report that the "Girls Trip" star sent a statement to ticketholders Saturday, saying she cannot "in good faith" perform in Georgia unless it withdraws the so-called heartbeat bill. Haddish had been scheduled to perform June 22 at the Fox Theatre. The new law would ban abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as six weeks, before many women know they are pregnant. Unless it's blocked in court, it's set to go into effect in 2020.
