NICOSIA – Hundreds of Greek and Turkish Cypriot youths gathered for a protest on Sunday against the British military presence in Cyprus, calling for a reunified Cyprus without the presence of military bases and foreign troops.

“The leftist youths gathered on the snow-capped peak of the central Troodos massif and demanded the end of the presence of British bases, as well as other military facilities, on the eastern Mediterranean island…Standing outside a fenced-off British administration compound and also outside the dome housing radar installations on top of Mount Olympus at a height of nearly 2,000 meters, they chanted slogans against the global policies of both Britain and the United States…The protest was organized by Greek Cypriot organization EDON, which is the youth branch of the left wing AKEL opposition party, along with youth organizations of several leftist Turkish Cypriot parties,” ShanghaiDaily.com reported.
