Abstract

Last Sunday, at "Ayos Kasyanos Church" Cyprus Orthodox High Priest Makarios made a speech and said "no one can pull our annexation flag down" and invited Cypriot Greeks to make sacrficies, and EOKA leader "Digenis" distributed manifesto.
However, says Yavuz, this is not a call for sacrifice, this is a call to become bouncer to hurt innocent people. Yavus asks why is the government indifferent to and does free right-wing Cypriot Greek leaders who are more dangerous than Cyprus Communist Organization's members (who are caught and sent to isolation camps). Right-wing activists have no relation with terrorist acts? What is the meaning of provocative speeches that are given in churches? Isn't it against the law to call people to "sacrifice" in the name of annexation?
Why has Cyprus become a military base? According to the official statistics, for destruction of EOKA activists, more than fifteen thousand soldiers were brought to Cyprus. Terrorist activities and harms, in total, cause a big cost in the budget.
Yavus calls government to be more careful about both right-wing and left-wing and EOKA activists, and to be more strict with agitated people in the churches who break the peace in society.
