Memorial Day, fifty years ago...

Propose and discuss specific solutions to aspects of the Cyprus Problem

would you join a convoy of drivers to fly the Cyprus flag from the tip to Paphos?

hell yes, it'll make a great Sunday drive.

no, you'd be a fool to get caught up in the violence that would follow.

...it came to mind today, the Cypriot flag as a symbol, how powerful it is.

...i imagined groups like these brave men, The Freedom Riders, if they were to demonstrate the Right for their free movement, and expression on this island, gathering in association under its banner.

"If not us, then who?
If not now, then when?"

...small acts by ordinary people can make a big change.

...bravo Paphitis, thank-you.

49 viewed, no one else has the courage to express the same sentiment;
each a little tic hanging off the pubic hair that's theirs, only wanting (from the tasty parts) to suck blood.
Easy to be "Greek" when there are Turks in the forum, just like "Turks" who dismiss Greeks;
"Turks" and "Greeks" not Cypriots:

...shameless cowards.

should have expected such ignorance...

...and to the rest of you regardless, I am here for the Freedom of Cyprus.

cheers...

-or-

...fuck yourselves.
(pardon me but that is what you are doing)

thank-you second voter

...you see I am a wounded person, my great uncle, my uncle, my cousins, made to disappear, and like my aunt(s) knowing that the coincidence is that a person or persons of Turkish origin made that happen.

Thus my plea to fight Ignorance, with the understanding that this is the enemy that has caused the Problem and our pain, which remains the impasse that it is today.

RW,

what can I say file.

This thread deserves more attention.

Good onya for starting it. Hopefully, the local members that are in Cyprus pay more attention as they should, and use the freedom riders as an inspiration, and embark on this peaceful mission from Paphos to Apostolos Andreas, armed only with the Cyprus Flag.

Still count me in, even if it is just me, the other second voter and RW.

Cmon guys, what's wrong with you?

May I point out once again for the benefit of other Cy's, what a brilliant concept RW has portrayed with one unifying symbol which can/might destroy ignorance and prejudice from both sides?

Anyone home? :lol:

(bloomin hell....i just wanted to bump the thread) :oops:

Now where were we? RoC Flag from Paphos to the pan handle.....

Bonus points to anyone who replaces the two massive Turkish flags at Cape Andreas with the rightful one. :)

I'd love to wave a red flag at a raging bull. Love this crazy idea. I suppose you will ask the Turkish Army to escort and ensure the safety of this peaceful demo. :lol:

A bar in Limassol will satisfy yu- =-my dream is different - i need a Turkish general to sign their surrenter agreement under the "blue Cyprus"- So many Turkish generals are jailed for jokes i.e. (-Heating down a Greek WAR PLANE) -why nobody of them can not help me in my dreams?
