We all know that we are not living under “normal” conditions in the northern part of Cyprus.
Even the most radical dissident knows this.
So does the most nationalist…
This is a country of “ceasefire”…
It is not under the “active and effective control” of those elected by society itself in any circumstances.
This is the reality!
Even though it hurts…
There are not too many options other than democratic practices to change this.
The options are to voice ourselves to the world, to explain that we are heavily besieged, to oppose, to get organised against all this as much as possible and to choose as much as possible the right people when going to the ballot…
What other solution options do we have?
Just like the old ones used to say, “We’re out of our depth…”
But again it is important to note…
That they are unable to take steps “in spite of Cyprus.”
Under all circumstances, they are looking for pawns, finding puppets and creating collaborators.
Thus they are making it look like the demand or request comes from [within] Cyprus.
Is this a consolation?
I hope that they don’t turn elections into some sort of theatrics for show.
Because if people lose the chance to change their lives by electing, by being elected, through politics or democracy, then the tension will grow even further.
I saw the sign which read “No entry, Forbidden Zone” put up on Karpasia’s most beautiful beach…
That red sign!
A black-coloured soldier figure holding a weapon on the sign…
It reads “no entry” in four languages and I think this is the only sign we have that is written in four languages!
Everybody should know in Turkish, English, French and in German that there is no peace here yet!
We’re talking about Karpasia’s most beautiful cove, the area from the Agios Philon Church to Cape Zafer [Cape Apolostos Andreas] and it is a “Special Environmental Protection Area.”
It has been given to the military.
Of course, they will hide behind “national narratives.”
Once again we will turn a blind eye to the pillaging of the environment and the lies…
What are the sacred for?
To be used as a cover!
Unfortunately, we have no other choice but to reveal the truth in the northern half of this island, to cry out to the world in an organised way and to raise our objection…
As if there is democracy…
As if there is peace…
As if there is [political] will around here…
