UNION OF CYPRIOTS ON RECENT TURKISH MILITARY ACTIVITIES
18.12.2019 – As Union of Cypriots, we are following closely the recent Turkish military activities in the occupied areas of Cyprus. Turkey currently has more than 40 thousand illegal military personnel in the island. This illegal army is not here only as a threat against the existence of the Republic of Cyprus, Turkey also uses it as a tool for oppression against the Turkish-speaking Cypriots who are trapped in the occupied areas.
UNION OF CYPRIOTS ON BERLIN MEETING AND THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT
26.11.2019 – We are witnessing another event that BBF supporters will try to present as “progress”, despite the reality that nothing changed against the status-quo. The meeting of Cypriot leaders yesterday in Berlin under the UN auspices ended with just a statement, that they will continue working under the decided UN parameters for BBF. We do not remember any side in this “Cyprus game”, including occupier Turkey, ever saying that “they reject UN parameters” anyway. All these show us that the same stories continue for 45 years from the BBF supporters, a solution formulated by Denktaş and Turkey in the first place.
UNION OF CYPRIOTS ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE PSEUDO-STATE
15.11.2019 – Today is the 36th anniversary of the “Unilateral Declaration of Independence” (UDI) of the pseudo-state. It was a coup in Cyprus by the US-backed junta in Greece which caused all the tragedy in 1974. And it was another US-backed junta in Turkey which advised Rauf Denktaş and his friends to declare their illegal state in 1983.
UNION OF CYPRIOTS IS WITH “PEOPLES OF THE WORLD WITH EVO!”

UNION OF CYPRIOTS ON THE 1ST AND 28TH OCTOBER PARADES
28.10.2019 – Many times we made statements about the fact that in the “free” areas of Cyprus, the 1st October “Independence Day” is being celebrated with foreign Greek flags because of the traitor Greek-speaking Cypriot politicians who are occupying the positions of our republic “unconstitutionally”.
As we always say: “In this island, the existence of the Greek flag guarantees the existence of the Turkish flag. And vice-versa. Both are banners of the sickness of the traitors, grecophilia and turcophilia. Hanging one of them only legitimizes the other. It’s as simple as that.”
UNION OF CYPRIOTS’ VIEWS ON EEZ, YAVUZ AND CURRENT ISSUES
08.10.2019 – The first three photos are showing the Greek-speaking Cypriot politicians’ “diplomacy” with the occupier. And the last photo shows one of the massacre-attempts that occupier organized against the Turkish-speaking Cypriots who fights for an independent Cyprus, the Afrika newspaper attacks in 22 January 2018. All these are from a very recent time. But things didn’t change from “Gavur Imam Revolt”, which happened in 1833 when the Turkish-speaking Cypriots and the ordinary Greek-speaking Cypriots fought against the Ottomans, while the Greek-speaking elite and the Church were hiding behind Sultan.
