The Protect the Karpaz National Park Group is stepping up its protests to stop environmental destruction in the Karpaz. The group has, today, filed a criminal complaint at the General Directorate of Police to stop all work in the area.

The head of Biologists Association, Hasan Sarpten held a press conference to emphasise that the struggle had begun. He said that their efforts would intensify and widen until the destruction of the environment is halted.

He called on interested citizens to join him for a protest demonstration in Karpaz National park on Sunday 27th January at 10.30am. There will be buses leaving from the bus terminal in Nicosia at 8.30am.

Publicity will be distributed tomorrow through newspapers and leaflets at major intersections.
