  • Description

    UNION BETWEEN CYPRUS AND GREECE. THAT WAS THE THEME OF A NOISY RALLY STAGED BY GREEK STUDENTS IN ATHENS YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY). SHOUTING AND WAVING BANNERS, THOUSANDS OF DEMONSTRATORS MASSED OUTSIDE ATHENS UNIVERSITY, PROCLAIMING SUPPORT FOR GREEK CYPRIOTS.

    THE PROTEST COINCIDED WITH THE 14TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CYPRIOT PLEBISCITE WHICH ALMOST UNANIMOUSLY FAVOURED UNION WITH GREECE, AND THE OPENING OF THE LONDON CONFERENCE ON THE FUTURE OF CYPRUS.

    ORGANISERS OF THE RALLY WERE THE NATIONAL UNION OF GREEK STUDENTS AND THE CYPRIOT STUDENT FIGHTERS' ASSOCIATION. AMONG THE BANNERS: "SELF-DETERMINATION FOR CYPRUS" -- "SHAME ON THE BARBARIANS" -- AND "CYPRUS IS GREEK."
    THE MOB, WHICH INCLUDED PRIESTS, LATER MARCHED OFF TOWARDS THE TURKISH EMBASSY, BUT WERE DRIVEN BACK BY POLICE.
