One Response to What did Cypriots spend in Occupied area

  1. I think that perhaps Greek Cypriots are getting complacent and comfortable with the occupation ? Today, here in England, in a town called Chelmsford in Essex, I saw a barber shop. It was called ‘The Turkish Barber Shop’ and had on its signage a depiction of Cyprus as if to say that all of it is Turkish. Shameful and very cheeky. I took a photo of it. So come on fellow Greek Cypriots let us have your feedback, we should let the Turkish Cypriots know we have not forgotten what they did in 1974. They invaded then and illegally occupied our Cyprus. No matter how many years go by and despite that it happened 37 years ago, it was wrong then and it is wrong now and they need to just LEAVE !
