On June 3rd, we launched the 2023 #HandsOffCyprus e-campaign to mark 49 years since Turkey’s illegal invasion and occupation of Cyprus. The campaign calls on MPs to encourage Turkey to return to the negotiations from where they stopped in 2017 and to cease its repeated calls for the permanent partition of Cyprus. This message has now reached over 50% of MPs thanks to our community’s efforts and participation.

Over 325 MPs have now received emails from their constituents.

If you haven’t yet emailed your MP yet, now is the time to make your voice heard – write to your MP and ask them to speak up for a free and united Cyprus. YOUR voice needs to be heard. The more emails an MP receives, the more they will take notice.

Federation President Christos Karaolis thanked the community for supporting the #HandsOffCyprus campaign so far and added, “In recent years, we have shown that the most effective way of making MPs engage with the Cyprus issue is by demonstrating that their constituents remain committed to the issue. It shows the strength of our voice and belief that year after year we reach more than 50% of MPs with our message of a free, united Cyprus. We need to maintain this momentum and redouble our efforts to spread the message. In addition to filling out the form yourself, you can maximise the spread of our message by sharing the link to the form on your social media accounts and directly with your friends and family.”

We have already been sent a large number of positive responses from MPs reiterating their unequivocal support for a free, united Cyprus, showing just how effective emailing your MP is. If you’ve also received a response from your MP about the Cyprus issue, please to share it with us: [email protected]

Our message is simple: Negotiations must recommence from the point at which they stopped in Crans Montana. Reunification, based on the agreed UN framework, is the only solution for Cyprus to end Turkey’s continued illegal occupation.
