Ultra nationalist Greek activists today attempted to cross the border by force.

Members of ELAM, the far right nationalist Greek Cypriot party were demonstrating at the Ledra Palace barricades this afternoon and attempted to cross over to the North Рwhere UN peacekeeping forces intervened.

ELAM has organised marches against North Cyprus before, in 2010 and 2011. Its principal ideologies are anti-immigration and anti-federalist solution, it also promotes Hellenistic education. They have been accused in the past of ‘inciting racial violence’.
