Metacyp, please realise enosis is dead. Nobody wants it whether TC or GC!

I do realize that Enosis is dead, just like partition and integration of the north with Turkey is dead. However, Denktas stilll works for taksim, he knows he's not going to get it, but he tries to get as close to it as possible, with the recognition of TRNC, and etc. Similarly, Papadopoulos knows enosis is dead, but he tries to get as close to it as possible by making RC a truly Hellenic Republic and giving minority rights to TCs.

Final fantasy it is not enough just to say that the North needs revolution , my opinion also the GC side needs revolution as well.

Establishing a strong cypriot identity would be a huge step forward. Thats how the trust can be gained by both communities and work together.

The use of the Greek and Turkish flags is one of the reasons why there isn't a strong sense of Cypriot identity, or at least one strong enough to overcome those who promote Greek and Turkish nationalist causes. I would guess that the education system is another cause of division. We have seen how recently students created problems in Republic of Cyprus, often with approval of teachers. An open question from someone who lives in UK, and only knows Cyprus as a visitor,

who is responsible for the education of Cypriot children in South and North? Who is in charge of what is taught, the state, the church or the staff in the schools themselves?

So therefore the state has a responsibility to educate children about their history. This means also that what children learn in RoC about Turkish Cypriots and Turkey is a matter for the state? If so please educate me and tell me what is taught so I can understand how people are brought up in the schools to think. I appreciate that a parent can contradict what is taught and have a greater influence.

Many things are taught and I wouldn't say they include any lies. It is true though that some things are emphasized more and some things are not mentioned much.
For example in our schools the coup and the invasion are emphasized. Saying that the traitors that did the coup gave the chance to Turkey to invade Cyprus.
What they don't mention much is what happened between 60-74.
