CT4TPJE Heads to Stuttgart from Karlsruhe
In its 8th day since its start in Sweden, and after passing through the German cities of Kiel, Hamburg, Hanover, Kassel, Giessen, a stopover at the closing ceremony of the 11th Euro YPFDJ Conference, Frankfurt, and Karlsruhe, the Cycling Tour for Truth, Peace, Justice and Eritrea (CT4TPJE) is now on its way to Stuttgart.
As in the other cities it passed through, the tour was warmly welcomed in Frankfurt and Karlsruhe. According to the cyclists, the love and support they are getting from Eritreans and friends of Eritrea everywhere they had a stopover is beyond words.
The cyclists are on this tour (1) to highlight the truth about Eritrea and its people and how, despite repeatedly being wronged by the west, the country is forging forward and has become an oasis of peace and harmony in the Horn of Africa. (2) to call for an immediate and unconditional implementation of the 13-year old, final and binding, boundary decision and an end to Ethiopia's illegal occupation of sovereign Eritrean territories; (3) to call on the UN Security Council to lift the illegal sanctions it imposed on Eritrea based on totally fabricated and falsified “evidence” from Ethiopia and its western enablers, particularly the United States.
At the end of the tour the cyclists are going to present a memorandum to the UN office in Geneva on these issues. The tour is being sponsored by Eritrean Communities in Australia, Europe and North America.
