Given the latest developments at Syria, and despite the decision of the UN, Great Britain, France and the United States appear determined to re-plunge Syria in blood.
The stance of the Cypriot state at this juncture is the following:
It accepts the British bases as “sovereign” territory and launch pad for the attacks on Syria, it collaborates militarily with the occupational army of Israel (which participates also in the present slaughter) and it welcomes generously the American destroyers equipped with Tomahawk missiles and Cruz rockets for a new bloodbath in the Middle East.
On the basis of the above, which render Cyprus directly involved in the imperialist plans for the region, participating in the war operations and providing its land (and its waters) for attacks against the Syrian state, we express our worry and our unmitigated opposition to what is being planned.
We consider inconceivable, especially in a country semi-occupied by foreign military forces, to accept as a society the participation of the Cypriot state in such military alliances against neighbouring peoples, under the pretext that these powers are our allies who will safeguard the peace and our sovereign rights.
NOT THE SLIGHTEST PARTICIPATION OF CYPRUS IN MILITARY OPERATIONS
DOWN WITH THE BASES OF DEATH
HANDS OFF SYRIA, PALESTINE AND THE MIDDLE EAST
RISE AGAINST THE WAR AND IMPERIALISM
