Στην Δερύνεια προσωπιδοφόροι μπήκαν σε σπίτια και δεξιών και αριστερών, και κατέστρεψαν εμπόρευμα αριστερών μαγαζιών. Σε ένα άλλο σπίτι μπήκαν και κατέστρεψαν Αγγλική σκόνη πλυσίματος, ενώ τον είχαν προειδοποιήσει και το προηγούμενο βράδυ να μην αγοράσει πάλι Αγγλικά, αλλά Κυπριακή σκόνη πλυσίματος. Αφότου έφυγαν οι προσωπιδοφόροι διαπληκτίστηκαν με αριστερούς, οι οποίοι και προξένησαν ζημιές στις νέες εθνικόφρονες συντεχνίες. Ωστόσο, το φταίξιμο, σύμφωνα με την εφημερίδα, ήταν των αριστερών, εξού και ο τίτλος της εφημερίδα, όπως επίσης, και κατηγορούνται ότι είναι εχθροί των κυπριακών προϊόντων
In Dherynia EOKA fighters entered the houses of both right-wing and left-wing supporters, and they ruined the merchandise of left shops, because it was British. On another house they entered and destroyed the washing powder because it was British, despite the fact that the previous night the EOKA fighters had warned the owner of the house not to buy British but Cypriot washing powder again. After the EOKA fighters left they clashed with some leftists, and the latter caused damages in the new right-wing trade-unions. However, according to the newspaper, the leftists are to blame, hence the title of the article, and also the leftists are accused for being enemies of the Cypriot products.
