Students condemn ‘TRNC’ anniversary

HUNDREDS of students took part in islandwide protest demonstrations yesterday to mark the anniversary of the declaration of independence of the ‘Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus’ on November 15, 1983.

A heavy police presence accompanied the demonstrations at the Ledra Palace checkpoint and tensions rose briefly as some of the youths demonstrating began to throw stones. A car with Turkish Cypriot registration plates was damaged by students waving Greek flags. According to police the damage was not severe and the tension soon dispersed. No arrests were made.

“We’re going to burn a flag that’s big and red,” and “the only good Turk is a dead Turk,” were just some of the chants shouted out by the demonstrators, some of whom wore intifada-style scarves

The demonstrations were simultaneously also held to commemorate the student uprising against the military junta in Greece on November 17, 1973.

A concert to commemorate both anniversaries with the Greek singer Laurentius Maheritsas was held at the Tassos Papadopoulos Eleftheria stadium in Nicosia between 11am and 1:30pm.

Youth leaders commented that: “Today, 26 years after the illegal declaration of the pseudo-state, we would like to send the crystal-clear message that the students of Cyprus reject unconditionally … the invasion and occupation.”

Students in Limassol, Larnaca, Paralimni and Paphos took part in simultaneous demonstrations against the ‘TRNC’.

“The youth of Cyprus give the message that they will continue courageously the effort for … the reunification of our homeland,” said Andreas Pyras, president of the Youth Association before stating the support of the students and youth movement for the federalised solution being worked on by President Christofias.

Demonstrations and marches against the ‘TRNC’ and in commemoration of the 1973 students’ uprising in Greece are also planned across the island today.

The Pancyprian union of students (POFEN and PSEM) also delivered a resolution against the occupation to the UN headquarters in Nicosia.
