It reached around 350 the following weekend. And since the somewhat equivocal pledge last Sunday to get back to Geneva, even the smaller weekday crowds have been growing.

Why does this prove the island’s potential? First, it shows that there are a number of resourceful people who really want to make a Cyprus settlement work. They already have friends across the divide and will be an important ‘accelerator’ in bringing people, institutions and businesses together.

Second, they have already been working on it. At the Ledra Street crossing and elsewhere, I have met business people who know exactly what they will do the day after a solution and have already set up agreements with business counterparts from the other community to do so. I shall not expose them by saying who they are, but suffice it to say that some of them are big business.

They are also innovative. Not only does Unite Cyprus Now have a recognisable brand (designed by Maria Voniati), and an anthem (composed by Haji Mike and Gibsy Rhodes), the participant who has become the crowd’s natural leader, Andreas Lordos, actively encourages different forms of expression. This has spurred all kinds of initiatives, from salsa dancing to poetry.

The spontaneous flourishing in the buffer zone is a living example of the island’s potential. Unite Cyprus Now participants are imaginative, inventive, and they never give up

Idiots...

...worth reading, it explains the complexities involved in arriving to such an event, Crans-Montana.

...and in my mind it suggests that Mr. Anastasiades, while he made many concessions, he, for Cyprus stood firm.

Greek, Turkish Cypriot workers rally for fresh negotiations

Source: Xinhua 2018-05-02 02:24:12

NICOSIA, May 1 (Xinhua) -- Greek and Turkish Cypriot workers turned their Labor Day celebrations on Tuesday into a rally to press their leaders to engage in new negotiations aimed at ending the four-decade partition of Cyprus.

Workers from both sides converged on the U.N. controlled buffer zone separating the Greek and Turkish Cypriot sector of the capital Nicosia for a joint May Day celebration.

Their meeting late on Tuesday turned into a rally for the resumption of the stalled negotiations as speakers from both sides time and again urged the community leaders not to delay any more the restart of the peace negotiations.


...while Akinci hints he may accept the Guterres framework.
