29.11.2022 – The Union of Cypriots sees Cyprus and Palestine as two countries where imperialism has taken root in the heart of Western Asia. As long as these two national and colonial issues, which can be compared in different contexts, are not resolved, imperialism, colonialism, racism, sectarianism and Zionism will spread like cancer in the demands of the peoples of the region for peace, equality, brotherhood, bread and freedom.

Cypriot labour unions

22.02.2022 – Trapped in the northern part of Cyprus, Turkish-speaking Cypriots are trying to continue their lives under the oppression of the Turkish occupation.

Only solution: Consociationalism, namely, Republic of Cyprus


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.

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.
