CANA to organize protest against Turkish invasion of Cyprus

PanARMENIAN.Net - On July 20, 2010, the Cyprus Action Network of America (CANA) will be demonstrating in front of the Turkish Embassy in Washington DC, to demand justice for Turkish invasion of Cyprus that began on July 20, 1974.

“For 36 years Greek-Cypriots suffer an ongoing Holocaust of our culture, heritage and people. Turkey's crimes include the rape of 800 Greek-Cypriot women, the murder of thousands of Greek-Cypriots, the theft of half of the Greek-Cypriot peoples homeland, the forcible displacement of hundreds of thousands, and the ongoing illegal occupation of a culture, a sovereign territory a homeland,” the CANA said.

“Our protest sends the strong message around the world that, no matter how hard the Turkish murderers, rapists, thieves, invaders, occupiers and their allies try to sell us their Turkish racist bizonal, bicommunal plans: we will never forgive, we will never forget the perpetrators of the Holocaust of the Greek-Cypriot people.”
