I thought it was just APOEL but the cancer has spread far and wide it seems. Erdogan and Tatar are having wet dreams of ELAM becoming third party.

May their lord help the GCs in their hour of need.

This is a global phenomena now.

This is what happens when the little guy feels like they have no hope or feels that their freedoms as citizens become violated and there is an increase of crime due to mass migration and so on.

When voters get tired of the same old rhetoric from the major parties, where politicians are all talk but no walk, and are in it for their own self interest rather than represent and help their community, voters look for alternatives.

In the US, the alternative was Trump.

In Cyprus the alternatives could very well be ELAM.

Revolutions now occur at the ballot box. And the more the media highlight and try to defame ELAM as Fascist and NAZI, the stronger they become.

This is because the people have lost faith in institutions, old power structures and the media. It will become the case where people will vote for whoever the media declare as an anathema.

The old power structures are being challenged now. BREXIT, Trump, and there will be more. Much more.

"...indeed, "Greekness" is raising its head to the "Turkishness" that is daring to go even further; such is the way, of "Greekness" and "Turkishness". Fear driving fear in an endless game, and a mythic reality; almost real life

And yet, despite the decades of having their identity as Cypriots usurped from them, they remain; as voters about half the population any way it is counted. It is only a matter of time, in my mind, for Cypriots to realise that, "They", are the same; that by standing together as Cypriots they expose "their" corruption, and the intentions against them.

...indeed, i ask who treats the Flag of Cyprus as a rag?

Who would be against Cypriots enjoying a good souvla on the beach under the one Flag, as a People, they have a right to peacefully enjoy, anywhere in Cyprus? Worth thinking about.

Who cannot imagine that such events can occur?

...only those who would like to believe Cypriots are few."

There is no fascism in sport. Just politics. But Cyprus isn't unique here.

Some Football teams are affiliated through their supporters as being connected to some political parties. None are connected to ELAM.

Omonoia, Nea Salamina, AEL affiliated to AKEL for example.

APOEL, Anorthosis, Appollon affiliated to DISY and DIKO

The second grouping affiliated to DISY and DIKO are NOT fascist.

I would caution against even labelling ELAM as fascist.

What is required is an understanding why people vote the way they do and an understanding. Then acceptance as their right to do so.
