(GOLDEN-GREEN LEAF DROPPED INTO THE SEA" 

by GEORGE SEFERIS

Cyprus remains in the grip of Turkey with 38% of the island occupied by Turkey since they invaded Cyprus in 1974. The north of Cyprus has been turned into a Turkish enclave  governed by Turkish military, directed solely by Turkey.The TRNC of the North is the result of Turkish financing, military occupation and political Turkish propaganda endorsed by its allies. While Greek Cyprus looks in desperation on what the governors of Ankara have been doing in Cyprus, while the Greek Cypriots have been making one POLITICAL mistake after another for Turkey to benefit, the Europeans, the USA, Russia and the United Nations not only have not stopped Turkish War Crimes in Cyprus, but somehow condoned them and endorsed them and turned a blind eye.

Cyprus sits in my heart as a Cypriot and as a refugee who has lost home, properties and lands but more so, a person who has lost Country and Holy Places that nothing can replace, nothing can buy with money or realism, the modern word for capitulation to higher powers. The Greek Leaders speak of realism, which to me is an anathema and a betrayal of a Greek Island, whose history stretches back to the Homeric Times and the foundation of Salamis, now in the occupied area Turkey controls and governs.

The Greek connection is undeniable but also the Christian connection that goes back to the early days of Christianity and the arrivals of Apostles like Saint Paul, Saint Barnabas, Saint Marc and others later!! The island speaks of Christianity everywhere with Churches and Historic Monasteries that go back to Byzantine times!!

This exhibition pays tribute to motherland and its heroes of yesterday and today. Yes, the Greek Cypriots of today are all heroes living like the old Greeks of Mesolongi,  Free and yet Encircled and under Siege by Turkey. The exhibition pays tribute to the highest ideals of Humanity,

FREEDOM and DEMOCRACY FOR ALL!!!
