Cyprus petition against guarantees

SIGN THE PETITION AGAINST FOREIGN GUARANTEES OVER CYPRUS!

'Negotiations are underway in Cyprus between Demetris Christofias and Mehmet Ali Talat towards reaching a solution to the Cyprus Question. The Turkish side wishes to see the continuation of the system of guarantees established by the Treaty of Guarantee of 1960 or even the creation of a new mechanism of guarantees.

'This cannot be acceptable. The Treaty of Guarantee was the alleged justification for Turkey’s use of force against Cyprus in 1974. An EU Member-State cannot be party to any system of third States’ rights over its sovereignty and territorial integrity. Cyprus must not become hostage once again.

'By the said petition we, as the civil society, aim to enhance the resistance to such plans while the negotiations for a solution are underway.'

Thanks for letting us know about this. I had no idea. I am going to copy your post on my blog as well.

Isxys sent me an email with the information because I signed their previous petition on Famagusta. Good idea to post the details on your blog too.
