Only solution: Consociationalism, namely, Republic of Cyprus

Consociationalism

03.08.2020 – As Union of Cypriots, we do believe that for reinforcing our unitary republic, a pluralist democracy should be the ultimate goal for all Cypriots. But unlike federalists or other segregationists in our land, we are aware of the urgency of ending the Turkish occupation and we believe that the only way to delegitimize Turkey’s existence in our island is possible by “restoring the constitutional order in Cyprus”. Therefore, we advocate the idea that even if Cypriots want to decide to change the system of the government, it should be done democratically under the constitution of the Republic of Cyprus, after getting rid of Turkey’s illegal army and settlers.

Cypriots’ defense and the so-called “National Guard”

British Bases - Cyprus

27.07.2020 – As Union of Cypriots, we always defend the fact that the Republic of Cyprus and Cypriots have only one constitutional army. And that is the one described in the constitution itself. Therefore, we see the so-called “National Guard” just as a segregationist unconstitutional militia formed by the Greek-speaking Cypriot administration unilaterally in 1964, after the destruction of the constitutional order and the dissolution of legal armed forces in Cyprus.

Turkish-speaking Cypriot Laborers

09.06.2020 – The occupation regime that is controlled by Turkey in the northern areas of Cyprus is still keeping the checkpoints closed while the authorities of the free areas of Cyprus open them. The occupation regime and its pseudo-state are asking for the Turkish-speaking Cypriot workers who are employed in the free areas of Cyprus to sign a document accepting not to come back to the occupied areas until the regime decides to open the checkpoints.

Our view on the closure of crossing points in Cyprus

Ledra

18.05.2020 – As the Union of Cypriots, since the beginning of the effects of the pandemic, we always supported what the World Health Organisation and the medical authorities said. We followed and analyzed the measures that other nations took. And that is why we never supported or were part of populist activities on the issue of crossing points closure and criticized the protests that happened in the early stages of the pandemic.

Archbishop Chrysostomos & Talip Atalay

14.04.2020 – As Union of Cypriots, we condemn the Church of Cyprus’ and the Archbishop’s pronouncement of an illegal Turkish settler as the “Mufti of Cyprus”. Our organisation would like to shed some light on the matter and inform all Cypriots about the scandalous relationship between Archbishop Chrysostomos II and Erdogan’s chosen one, Talip Atalay, a relationship dating back to almost a decade.

Cyprus Drone & Naval Base

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

Berlin Meeting

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.

UDI of the pseudo-state

15.11.2019 – Today is the 36th anniversary of the “Unilateral Declaration of Independence” (UDI) of the pseudo-state.

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 on the 1st and 28th October parades

Cyprus EEZ & Yavuz

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

Cyprus EEZ & Yavuz

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.
