NEW YORK —The Cyprus Action Network of America (CANA) is urging activists to continue to struggle to stop the American celebrity Jennifer Lopez illegal visit to Turkish-Occupied Cyprus. In recent days an overwhelming number of emails and calls have been sent in protest to the “William Morris Agency“ in New York that represents Lopez in New York . There is no evidence NONE that Jennifer Lopez has withdrawn or denied that she is going to Turkish-Occupied-Cyprus. We urge all activists to keep trying to bring media attention to her illegal visit. We urge you all to continue until we or anyone else receives official confirmation of her cancelling from the right channels.

Thousands of young Greek-Cypriot men and women have joined the campaign the Facebook group AGAINST JENNIFER LOPEZ PERFORMING IN OCCUPPIED CYPRUS has gained close to 6, 0000 members in just a few days of its existence.

Please emphasize in your letters to Lopez that besides the fact the illegal pseudo-state is recognized by no-one but the human-rights-abusing Turkish government, we also note in Jennifer Lopez’s case the hypocrisy of her and her agent “William Morris Agency” disregarding the fact that the illegal Turkish military-occupiers are the unrepentant rapists of 800 Greek-Cypriot women,

Please use the Greek-Cypriot refugee woman Mrs. Fanoulla Argyrou letter “Dear Ms. Jennifer Lopez, 800 Greek Cypriot women were raped by Turks in 1974…"
