The Kyrenia Initiative, the Green Peace Movement and Bio-Der, along with the people of Karaoğlanoğlu, organised the “Walk in Fresh Air” action against construction on the Karaoğlanoğlu coastline on Saturday evening.

According to the statement made by the Green Peace Movement, the event took place within the 15-acre “Green Area” of the Karaoglanoğlu Fisherman’s Shelter and further on. All environmental associations, initiatives and people were invited to the meeting.

The protest was held in order to save the 100-metre strip of coastline which has been leased by the Ministry of Tourism and the Environment to a private company which intends to build a hotel on the site.
