    Background: Greek-Cypriot trades unionists paraded through all major towns in southern Cyprus on Friday (7 November) to back demands for the re-unification of the island ... only three days before the United Nations General Assembly begins a debate on the Cyprus question.

    The parade through the Cypriot capital, Nicosia, was among the largest. More than 150 trades unionists took part, waving placards and banners calling for "international support -- a powerful ally" and Greeks and Turks -- we shall love together in our country".

    The marches formed the first stage in a four-day programme of demonstrations and rallies due to culminate in a general work stoppage on Monday (10 November) -- the day the U.N. debate begins.

    It is now almost sixteen months since the coup overthrowing Archbishop Makarios sparked off civil strife and Turkish intervention. Recently the Turkish-Cypriot leader, Mr. Rauf Denktash, has suggested that he is considering making a unilateral declaration of independence on behalf of the Turkish-controlled north of the island ... depending on the outcome of the U.N. debate.
