We would like to thank you for carrying out our message through your Cycling Tour for Truth, Peace, Justice and Eritrea. It’s important the people of the world to know and realize that the only wish for the peace loving Eritrean people is Peace.
We call upon the UN, EU, AU, USA as the guarantors of the border demarcation implementation for the final and binding Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission to respect their words and signatures as a matter of principle and international law.
- Evict the illegal occupation from the Eritrean sovereign land.
- We call upon the UN and USA to lift the illegal and unjust sanction from the Eritrean people.
- Lift the Sanction now.
The truth will prevail!
God bless you EriCycling, Continental champions, African Pride!

CECCO (Coalition of Eritrean Canadian Communities and Organizations) lends its support to the Cycling
Tour for Truth, Peace, Justice and Eritrea
CECCO would like to express its support and solidarity with European-Eritreans and the Cycling Tour for Truth, Peace, Justice and Eritrea.
It has now been 10 years since the Eritrea Ethiopia Boundary Commission (EEBC)delivered its verdict in favour of Eritrea; The Ethiopian government however continues to violate both its treaty obligation and the final and binding verdict of the EEBC in direct and categorical violation of international law by continuing to illegally occupy territory awarded to Eritrea.
On the eve of the anniversary, 25 European-Eritreans will start a 1700 Kilometre tour starting from Gothenburg, Sweden on March 31, 2015 and ending in Geneva, Switzerland on April 13, 2015 to raise awareness and talk to media.
We call on all Canadian-Eritreans to support this just cause by making donations to support the cyclists. Contributions can be made by visiting the E-SMART website.
We call on Canadian-Eritreans to raise awareness to other Eritreans and friends of Eritrea by following the cyclists at http://www.eritrean-smart.org/blog/1 and sharing your support on social media through Facebook and twitter.
Finally, we call on the Canadian government and the international community to compel Ethiopia to abide by the final and binding verdict of the EEBC and the Algiers Agreement; so that the occupation of Eritrean territory can come to an end and so that both countries can resume peaceful coexistence as neighbours. Solving the on-going border occupation by Ethiopia is one of the keys to the enhancement of human rights in the in Horn of Africa. By remaining unresolved, it sets a very dangerous precedent and remains a constant threat to Eritrea’s independence, freedom and human rights.
