    On the island of Cyprus, where any and all festivals are now turned into political demonstrations for unity with Greece, or for partition, or for some other territorial arrangement, the Turkish Youth and Sports Day had a focal slogan------- "Death or Partition".

    This anniversary, which is celebrated on May 19th, commemorates the 1919 uprising, led by Kemal Ataturk, which resulted in the modern Turkish Republic.

    The festivities include marches and processions, with the Turkish people wearing traditional costumes, dances, poetic orations, gymnastics and speeches by notable members of the community.
