Free access to beaches protest

Free access to beaches protest

The Baraka Cultural Centre has been campaigning for free access to TRNC beaches since 2009.

It stresses that this is a constitutional right of citizens. The organisation has had many successes but knows that there are still charges for access to many beaches. The Centre considers this illegal but acknowledges that the police and government do nothing about it.

At a recent protest at the Deniz Kizi hotel in Lapta, it was claimed that one of their number was assaulted.

They will be holding another demonstration in front of the Deniz Kizi Hotel on June 2nd at 2pm and are asking for all to join in.

They will be protesting at the attempts to privatise public beaches and also against beaches which remain dirty.
