...reactions from Tufan; the opposition CTP.

...and 64% of the people living in the occupied territories who would prefer the Euro instead of the Lira.

In reality the north already uses the Euro and the US Dollar. Except that people have a choice to pay in those currencies or the conversion on that days rate to TL and of course they do get paid in TL.

...bad news in my opinion; Turkey will flood the occupied territories with more migrants, Syrians for example that they don't want in Turkey: that side of the line (now) interpreted as "Theirs".

“The summary of this reference in official EU regulations is also the first time Europe has officially recognized instrumentalization of immigration by Turkey via the Green Line, and now the Republic of Cyprus faces the threat of Turkish blending and immigration. By adopting all means and measures applicable at the external borders of the European Union without the Green Line being considered a border, the daily illegal migration of irregular migrants The transit passes through the occupied territories,” the ministry added.

This is a very important development, the ministry said, adding that the development comes at a time when Turkey is increasing its threats, mainly against Cyprus and Greece.

“Currently, instrumentalization of migrants via the Green Line has changed from a Cypriot issue to a European issue and is expected to be addressed in the future,” the ministry concluded.


...yet it all sounds like good news.

"Trade unions in two municipalities suspended their strike after the finance minister demanded payment of overdue wages for a day, Yeniduzen reported."

...the same old story. This regime cannot pay its workers regularly.

A human chain was formed at the Kermia roundabout in the north, with the participation of opposition parties, the bar association, doctors, architects and engineers, who claim the so-called ‘Kulliye’ project was approved without going through standard procedures.

https://cyprus-mail.com/2022/11/23/turk ... -arrested/

...i am sad that such men are not defended by all of us who are Cypriot, who as Individuals defend the notion of such values, like Universal Principles and Basic Human Rights. Despite the "Greeks" and the "Turks" that live among us, let us remember what the rest of us are and what our Flag, the one "They" treat as a rag, actually represents.

...enosis, dare i say the word that Cypriots must take back by giving it a Cypriot meaning? (but how?)

Picnics, i see picnics on our beaches under the one flag that represents us as a People; that would be news, (that would be a fight,) fires lit sharing souvla, lots of music late into the night: (and who, exposed, would be against that?)

...Cypriots united are much stronger than the "Greekness" and "Turkishness" which has for decades dismissed them; it is really something to think about. A Greek Cypriot who ignores the misery of another Cypriot as in such a case because they are Turkish is a fool, or worse a traitor to all Mankind. Such threats are existential, toward 'us' all.

There is a reason why he has been attacked. He has recently set up an online broadcast and he does not mince his words. The south has long ago given up on the Turkish Cypriots and the north is divided 50/50. Half support him and the other half want him crushed.

I was in an online meeting where he was present and I warned him that if he attacks Turkey, he will get arrested. I told him to simply report on all the wrongs that Turkey has done since 1958 factually and stay within Cyprus. I even gave him details of a Turkish Cypriot who's wife was raped by Turkish soldiers. They cannot arrest a reporter reporting facts of the past.

A book has been written where all the activities of TMT have been revealed and nobody has been arrested, because they have the evidence. They could kill the TMT member who has released the evidence, but they cannot arrest him as TMT was not operating under the law. Anything is possible but the individual is very old and fought very bravely in the 60s to defend TCs. Not all TMT were bad.

As Nazim Hikmet wrote.

Ben yanmasam
Sen yanmasan
Biz yanmasak
Nasil cikar karanliklar aydinliga.

From his own voice.



Nazim Hikmet once admitted that his greatest regret was leaving Turkey for Moscow, instead of taking up his fight to the mountains where the left-wing fighters were fighting from. What Kazim is doing will bring more attention to the situation, but the community is split down the middle. I am not so sure what can be achieved.

...the People wanting change must speak for themselves, and united they are not a body that's small and insignificant.

I do not despair.

...the protests do not seem to be growing, but they do not cease.

(Indeed, i talk of Grivas' brother who fought in EOKA against the British, and who withdrew once Cyprus was Free having ended the subjugation Cypriots were living under.)

The Problem is not about Greeks versus Turks, or "Greeks" vs "Turks". It is about "Greeks"/"Turks" vs Greeks/Turks. The same can be said in Turkey, and as it is evolving in the Ukraine, too.

...indeed the Turkish Cypriot is at the vanguard against the hateful dogma "Turkishness" has come to represent, and if 'we' hate such dogma we must fight along with them.

Erdogan is king in Turkey and his hands reach Northern Cyprus. It is obvious that any comment regarding the Kurdish struggle in Turkey is seen as supporting PKK. The current HDP leader is in jail without trial for merely saying the word peace regarding the struggle the Kurds are in today.

We as Cypriots should concentrate on Cyprus. All the energy is needed here not elsewhere. Whether it be Turkey, Greece or even Ukraine. So far Erdogan simply stopped reporters he did not like entering Turkey. Even if there is no evidence that TRNC law has been broken, he may well end up in jail for months without trial because that is what Erdogan wants.

...a new "Ambassador" of Erdogan's in the occupied territories.

https://nordicmonitor.com/2022/11/erdog ... l-outfits/

...indeed the so called TRNC will become a "country" full of mosques, brothels, and casinos; with scenic views reminiscent of days gone by, before the Modern Age.

"North" Cyprus is already a place for cronies and corruption, and for Turkey's ruling class, as such, it is a loadstone.
