Memorial March against the Turkish occupation of Cyprus since the 20th of July 1974

Hundreds of Greek Nationalists marched yesterday on the streets of Lefkosia the last divided European capital . They protested against the turkish invasion of the island of Cyprus in 1974 . As a result of that invasion almost 40% of the cypriot territory remains occupied under the turkish troops.

The militants of the National People's Front distributed a great number of leaflets while they were passing through the streets of Lefkosia . What was most amazing , was the large number of young students who participated in the ranks of the National People's Front . That was very promising for the future !
