A group of 30 organisations, declaring ‘the tipping point has arrived’, have unanimously decided to mobilise on the evening of Friday, April 26th, at 6pm, Yeniduzen reports.

They will convene at Dereboyu before marching towards the Assembly, raising their voices and demanding accountability, firmly stating ‘enough is enough.’ In a statement issued by the Cyprus Turkish Association of Secondary Education Teachers (KTOEÖS) on behalf of all participating organisations, the following sentiments were conveyed regarding the upcoming demonstration:

“The echelons of power, along with the political figures purportedly steering the nation, alongside their affiliates, are all beneficiaries of a system marred by theft, corruption, bribery, and exploitation rampant in the northern reaches of our island.

“Under this deteriorating regime, characterised by sham educational institutions, illicit procurement practices, tax evasion, and the wanton pillaging of our natural resources, the populace is witnessing the erosion of societal fabric. Agricultural lands are being devoured by unchecked urbanisation, while the very bedrock of our democracy is under siege.

‘It’s imperative that those responsible are held to account, as the societal elites who have perpetuated this culture of impunity must face transparent and impartial justice. Those in positions of authority who manipulate laws to serve their personal interests and flout constitutional norms, perpetuating a cycle of favouritism and nepotism, must also be answerable for their actions.

‘This entrenched malaise must be eradicated, paving the way for a society governed by transparency and integrity. Measures must be implemented to bolster economic stability and uplift the downtrodden, while safeguarding the principles of democracy and self-determination.

“The time for action is now. To challenge the architects of this systemic decay, to combat corruption and wrongdoing, we unite to demand accountability and declare ‘enough.’ Join us on Friday, April 26th, 2024, at 6pm at the Dereboyu Citroen lights, as we march towards the Parliament, raising our collective voice against injustice and holding those in power accountable for the future of our nation, our children, and generations to come”.
