The Press Release issued earlier tonight, for Turkish Speakers...

OCCUPY BUFFER ZONE HAREKETİ'NDEN DUYURU

Bizler Kıbrıs'ta çoktoplumlu bir hareketin üyeleri olarak, dünyadaki mevcut adaletsizliğe karşı olan global Occupy hareketi ile paralel bir şekilde ve özelde adamızın eşitliğe dayalı, sınırsız bir ülke olması için kararlılıkla insiyatif almış bir grubuz.

Eylem 15 Ekim'de başlamış ve 19 Kasım'da da onyıllardır adamızı ayıran Ara Bölge'de bir işgal hareketine dönüşmüştür. Uzun bir süredir de Lefkoşa'nın merkezindeki Lokmacı/Ledra Ara Bölge'deki eylem alanında terkedilmiş halde duran binayı bir aktivite merkezine dönüştürerek, kültürel, sanatsal, eğitimsel etkinlikler, seminerler,çalıştaylar, müzik ve şiir geceleri organize ediyor ve hatta yeni kurduğumuz internet radyosuyla da yayın yapıyoruz.

6 Nisan gecesi, güneydeki polis güçleri barışçıl eylemcilere karşı şiddet kullanmış ve 20'den fazla kişiyi bir gerekçe bile vermeden tutuklamıştır. Bir kişi yaralanarak, hastaneye götürülmüştür. Binanın dışında işgal eylemi alanında toplanan destekçilere karşı da şiddet uygulayan polis, bu gruptan da iki kişiyi tutuklamıştır.

Bizler polisin şiddet yanlısı tutumunu kınıyor ve tutuklanan tüm eylemcilerin serbest bırakılmasını talep ediyoruz. Barış ve eşitlik için başlattığımız eylemimize devam etmekte kararlı olduğumuzu ilan ederek, herkesi daha yaşanılır bir dünya için desteğe çağırıyoruz.

"Πλατφόρμα Ε/κ και Τ/κ Εκπαιδευτικών “Ενωμένη Κύπρος” [ε/κ τμήμα]
7 Απριλίου 2012

Ανακοίνωση

H Πλατφόρμα Ε/κ και Τ/κ Εκπαιδευτικών “Ενωμένη Κύπρος” [ε/κ τμήμα] καταδικάζει τη χθεσινή (6/4), βίαιη επίθεση της αστυνομίας της Κυπριακής Δημοκρατίας ενάντια στα άτομα που έχουν καταλάβει τη νεκρή ζώνη και το κτίριο της Μονής Κύκκου στην περιοχή. Η επίθεση έγινε από μεγάλο αριθμό ειδικών αστυνομικών και είχε ως αποτέλεσμα τη σύλληψη πάνω από 20 ατόμων και τον τραυματισμό άλλων στη πλειοψηφία τους νέους και έφηβους.

Το κίνημα της κατάληψης της Νεκρής Ζώνης, που άρχισε από τις 19 Νοεμβρίου 2011, έχει ως στόχο την ειρήνη και την επανένωση του νησιού και μέσω διάφορων δράσεων κατάφερε να δώσει πνοή στη για περισσότερα από 40 χρόνια νεκρή περιοχή στο κέντρο της πόλης. Η κατάληψη της νεκρής ζώνης από Ελληνοκύπριους, Τουρκοκύπριους και άλλους ειρηνιστές έδωσε ελπίδα στο δικοινοτικό κίνημα και απέδειξε για ακόμη μια φορά πως μια άλλη Κύπρος, ειρηνική και επανενωμένη, είναι εφικτή.

Η δράση της Αστυνομίας τη συγκεκριμένη περίοδο, κατά την οποία οι δικοινοτικές συνομιλίες πνέουν ενδεχομένως τα λοίσθια, δημιουργεί ερωτήματα για την πολιτική σκοπιμότητά της, γιατί εξαφανίζει μια καθημερινή και ζωντανή έκφραση επιθυμίας δικοινοτικής συνεργασίας σε μια περίοδο μάλιστα που η προσοχή των ευρωπαϊκών λαών στρέφεται προς την Κύπρο.

Η έντονη παρουσία Τουρκοκυπρίων αστυνομικών, έστω και με πολιτικά, δημιουργεί την αίσθηση ότι, ενώ οι δύο πλευρές αποτυγχάνουν να συνεργαστούν στα καλά, στο κακό τα βρίσκουν με ευκολία. Η συνεργασία των δύο ενδεχομένως, έστω και υπό την αιγίδα της Δύναμης των Ηνωμένων Εθνών, είναι βήμα που τείνει να ανάγει την πράσινη γραμμή σε επίσημο σύνορο, ένα γεγονός που θα έπρεπε να αποφεύγεται.

Τέλος, κοιτάζοντας τις μέχρι στιγμής δημοσιογραφικές αντιδράσεις στο ίντερνετ, διαπιστώνουμε ότι ακόμα μια φορά, μερίδα του τύπου καταφεύγει στην κατασκευή εντυπωσιοθηριακών εικόνων στις οποίες ο αντινεανικός ρατσισμός αποτελεί βασικό υπόβαθρο. " on your timeline. · See Friendship

... and in English...

The G/C and T/C Teachers' Platform United Cyprus (g/c section) condemns the violent attack last night (6/4) by the the police of the Republic of Cyprus against the people who have occupied the dead zone and the building of Kykkos Monastery in the area. The attack was conducted by a huge number of special (anti-terrorist) police and had as a result the arrest of more than 20 persons, some injured and in their majority youth and teenagers.

The occupy the buffer zone movement, which begun on the 19th of November, has peace and the reunification of the island as its aim and through various actions has managed to revitalise an area in the centre of the city that was dead for more than 40 years. The occupation of the dead zone by Greek Cypriots, Turkish Cypriots and other peace activists has given hope to the bi-communal movement and has proven once more than another Cyprus, peaceful and reunified, is possible.

The action of the Police in this period in which the bi-communal negotiations are probably ending raises questions about the political aims behind it because it destroys an everyday living expression of the desire for bi-communal cooperation in a time that the attention of the European peoples focuses on Cyprus.

The increased presence of Turkish Cypriot police in the buffer zone, even with civilian clothes, creates the sense that while the two sides fail to cooperate to do something positive they are easily able to cooperate in doing something negative. The cooperation of the two sides even under the auspices of the United Nations Force is a step that tends to elevate the Green Line into an official border, something which should be avoided.

Finally, looking at the journalistic reactions so far on the internet, we observe that a section of the press resorts once more to the construction of sensationalised images in which the anti-youth racism constitutes the ultimate basis.

Picky of last night from CyprusNews EU...

...which solicited this reaction in greek from an Occupier...

29 συλλήψεις για παράνομη είσοδο σε κτίριο, 7 τραυματίες (ο ένας αρκετά σοβαρά). Η αστυνομία μπήκε με βία στο κτίριο με όπλα(με λέιζερ) στραμμένα σε ανήλικους! Χτύπησαν μια κοπέλα και άφησαν σημάδια σε ολόκληρο της το σώμα! Ένας έπεσε από τον δεύτερο όροφο και έσπασε τα πλευρά του! Και ο πολίτης μιλά για ένα γραμμάριο κάνναβης!; Νόμίζω είναι καιρός να αντιληφθούν κάποιοι ότι η κάνναβη δεν είναι πλέον ταμπού και ούτε βλάφτει οποιονδήποτε πρώτ'απόλα! Αν ενδιαφέρεστε για την υγεία μας γιατί πουλάν τσιγάρα στα περίπτερα που γράφουν "θάνατος" επάνω; Η κάνναβη στα 8000 χρόνια ιστορίας του προκάλεσε μηδέν θανάτους!

ΜΕΤΑ ΤΗΝ ΕΦΟΔΟ ΠΟΥ ΕΙΧΕ ΑΠΟΤΕΛΕΣΜΑ 29 ΣΥΛΛΗΨΕΙΣ ΚΑΙ 7 ΤΡΑΥΜΑΤΙΣΜΟΥΣ, ΕΙΜΑΣΤΕ ΑΚΟΜΗ ΕΔΩ! ΕΛΑΤΕ ΣΤΗΝ ΚΑΤΑΛΗΨΗ ΤΗΣ ΝΕΚΡΑΣ ΖΩΝΗΣ! ΣΥΝΑΝΤΗΣΗ Η ΩΡΑ 2:30 ΣΤΗΝ ΠΛΑΤΕΙΑ ΦΑΝΕΡΩΜΕΝΗΣ ΚΑΙ ΖΩΝΤΑΝΗ ΡΕΜΠΕΤΙΚΗ ΜΟΥΣΙΚΗ ΑΠΟΨΕ Η ΩΡΑ 9:00Μ.Μ. ΣΤΗΝ ΚΑΤΑΛΗΨΗ ΤΟΥ ΟΔΟΦΡΑΓΜΑΤΟΣ ΤΗΣ ΟΔΟΥ ΛΗΔΡΑΣ! ΞΥΠΝΑΤΕ!

Ενάντια στην κοινωνία του χρήματος πάνω από τις ζωές και την φύση! Για μια Κύπρο πραγματικά ελεύθερη και ενωμένη!

Συγχαρητήρια στην κυπριακή ΑΣΤΕΙΟΝΟΜΙΑ για το μεγάλο της κατόρθωμα! Εύγε!

From the Cyprus Mail

Police raid on peace movement nets one gramme of cannabis

Published on April 7, 2012

A strong police force spearheaded by the anti-terrorist squad last night raided a building on Nicosia’s Ledra Street -- occupied by a multi-communal peace movement -- arresting at least two people for possession of one gramme of cannabis.

Two people injured during the raid were taken to hospital but were later discharged.

“The operation was conducted in the presence of two individuals – a Greek Cypriot and a Turkish Cypriot – who were arrested for illegal possession and use of a controlled drug,” a police spokesman said.

Police said the two had resisted arrest and attacked the officers.

The occupants of the building said it was the police who “used violence against peaceful protestors.”

Witnesses said the officers who entered the building at around 10.15 pm had been armed.

People having dinner at a nearby restaurant heard glass breaking and screaming as police entered the building, which belongs to the Church.

It is located just after the Republic’s police checkpoint on the Ledra Street crossing that links the island’s Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities.

It had been occupied by members – mostly youths -- of a multi-communal group known as the Occupy Buffer Zone Movement who are demanding the demilitarisation and reunification of the island.

“People gathered in solidarity and the police used violence again to disperse them arresting two more protestors,” the movement said in a written statement.

The group pledged to fight on.

“We are determined to continue our protest for peace and reunification of our island and call for the support of the people of Cyprus and the global occupy movement.”

The movement has been occupying the area since November 2011.

How about latest event in Pyla(PİLE) village Billy Boy ?

Turkish Cypriot army was going to intervene to GC police action towards to TC man......

50-year-old citizen Kerim Ali Yahi was stopped by the Greek Cypriot police while driving in Pile.

He was beaten up and then taken under the so-called custody with no rightful reasons

''Everyone must know that our security forces are ready to intervene in the event of repetition of such unjust acts” this warring was from TC side......he was freed after the warning

TRNC PM Küçük, together with members of his cabinet, paid a visit to the mixed village today, to show the government’s support to TRNC citizens residing there............Prime Minister İrsen Küçük has strongly reacted against the unjust attitude of the Greek Cypriot police against a TRNC citizen in the mixed village of Pile.

Pile is under the UN controlled village where TC's and GC's lives mixed in the village.
