July 20th will never be forgotten
Hundreds of Greek flags and torches filled the streets as activists of ELAM marched against the Turkish occupation of Greek soil. The chants of the patriots resonated through the air, as a simple message was given: 39 years later this soil is still Greek and always will be, prepare for the nationalist earthquake!
In the early afternoon, the people collected in this march for national liberation. The National People’s Front (ELAM) has gained extraordinary momentum, and is leading the rush to the barricades to condemn Turkish barbarism. Patriotic songs and the sound of marching filled the skies, soon followed by a series of speeches. The barricade of shame that separates the island was symbolically undermined, when the security team of our movement prohibited the transportation to and from the occupied territories.
The flames of torches commemorated the sacrifice of those heroes that fell in battle and went missing 1974, fighting until the bitter end the Turkish invasion. Cyprus is Greek, and this is not up for debate!
U.S. Sec. of State Henry Kissinger, while addressing a group of Washington, D.C. businessmen in Sept. 1974, said:
“The Greek people are anarchic and difficult to tame. For this reason we must strike deep into their cultural roots: Perhaps then we can force them to conform. I mean, of course, to strike at their language, their religion, their cultural and historical reserves, so that we can neutralize their ability to develop, to distinguish themselves, or to prevail; thereby removing them as an obstacle to our strategically vital plans in the Balkans, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East.”
