Save Cyprus

    1. Kyriacos Kyriakides
    2. Petition by

      Kyriacos Kyriakides

      Κερύνεια, Cyprus

Your action is important:

1. To expose and halt the Republic of Turkey's illegal colonization of the Republic of Cyprus with non-Cypriot populations;

2. To denounce Turkey's continuing military threats against Cyprus;

3. To end Turkey's illegal occupation of northern Cyprus; 

4. To allow Cyprus to exploit its energy resources without illegal interference by Turkey; and

5. To elucidate for Turkey that before assuming the moral high ground in Cyprus offering its "wisdom" to the EU regarding what constitutes just rights for a 12% ethnic minority community perhaps Turkey needs to first address the political and cultural demands of its own circa 25% ethnic Kurdish minority which cannot even receive lessons in its native language through the school system, let alone full education in Kurdish.

    22. US Rep. Berman urges a thoroughgoing re-assessment of US policy on Cyprus

      Kyriacos Kyriakides
      Petition Organizer

      Congressman Howard L. Berman, Ranking Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, in his March 22nd 2012 letter to US Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton, concludes:

      "Turkey's threats against the Republic of Cyprus and its ongoing efforts to alter Cyprus' demography call into serious question Turkey's commitment to reunification. As the United States of America we should be uncompromising in opposing Turkey's efforts to trample on the sovereign rights of the Republic of Cyprus - whether through military threats or through colonizing Cyprus with Turkish citizens. In light of these dangerous developments,. we urge a thoroughgoing re-assessment of our Cyprus policy, taking fully into account Turkey’s military threats and its colonialist transfer of population from the Turkish mainland."

      Are we still contemplating taking action?

      How can civilised nations allow this act of aggression against a small country to continue and made worse over time without taking action? Turkey broke every international law in the case of Cyprus. Isn't 40 years enough for deciding to take the necessary action and force turkey to abide by the international laws of civilised behaviour ?
