  • Description

    Thousands of Greek students from Athens and Piraeus marched through the streets of the city yesterday (Sunday 26 January) on their way to the British Embassy where they planned to hand in a note of protest over what they considered to be Britain's pro-Turkish attitude in Cyprus.

    This demonstration and the other, more boisterous, actions by young Greeks, follows the British move in flying out Turkish Cypriot refugees from Cyprus to mainland Turkey. Greeks fear that they will be allowed to return to the island and will occupy former Greek property on those parts of Cyprus now controlled by Turkish forces.

    Yesterday's protest passed off quietly, however, and police who watched the procession through the centre of Athens were not called upon to intervene.
