The word "pressure" is part of international peaceful diplomacy. I do not confuse it with the the actual pressure applied by an occupying power on the indigenous population. When 120 000 TCs host 40 000 soldiers, plus an uknown number of settlers they are not being diplomatically "pressured" they are being occupied.

TCs like Sener Levent, Sevgul Ulutag, professor Kizilyurek seem to have the same view and attitude.

Opos me symferi? They are not oppressing my relatives in Cyprus, they are up north looking after TCs.

I talked to TCs who come south. They demolished several houses in our village to prevent them being occupied by settlers. They did collect my grandfathers belongings and brought them to us before they bulldozed his house. The families that now live around my grandad's neighborhood come to see my cousins often. These people are not lying when they say they feel oppressed by settlers.

My friend's house in Karavas was demolished for the same reason. Obviously some TCs are not happily "pressured".

Motherlands etc are nice myths as long as they are myths, when they become real it gets unpleasant. And most people resent being pressured to change their ways.

indeed, i have tried to express the same experiences, perhaps not as well. Even the root of the olive tree that was the center piece of my auntie's home, after everything in the house, after the olive tree itself, after the fact that the house was no longer habitable by a Turkish Officer; all shipped to Turkey. Point is who do you think keeps our family up to date, and after years of this occupation? The same neighbours who still celebrate the village fair by "being" there (: hundreds of miles away.) every year, regardless.
