16 June 2013

The TRNC Union of Public Employees has just announced a strike for tomorrow.

The strike will last from 9am to midday tomorrow. At 10 am there will be a march to the Turkish Embassy in Nicosia.

The press statement from union head, Ahmet Kaptan said that on June 15th the ruling AKP party gave orders to the police to attack children and old people with water cannon and tear gas. The wounded were not allowed medical attention, journalists were restricted from reporting. Where the public hid in hotels and restaurants, these too were attacked with tear gas. This is a policy of domination.

The union called on all the political parties and concerned citizens to join union members in front of the Turkish Embassy at 10am.
