The Independence Road movement (Bağımsızlık Yolu) has applied to the Ministry of the Interior to register itself as a political party.
According to Turkish Cypriot daily Afrika, it will be the first “eco, socialist and feminist” party in the TRNC. The party is also against “the dominance of the EU and the Republic of Cyprus” over the Turkish Cypriots and supports the idea that the existence of two peoples in Cyprus, is not contrary to peace.
On its Facebook page Bağımsızlık Yolu announced the following:
“We’re setting up the party!!!
Turkish Cypriot people have been sentenced to the same kind of war, the struggle for the liberation of labour, the struggle for the survival of our people, nature, animals, women, the people of the world, violence against children, the frozen bureaucratic processes of peace. We say that fascism is enough to feed its dark face once again.
In the face of organised evil, we are marking the political organisation of Turkish Cypriots
as a way of independence.”
