Re: Arrested For Flying Flags of the Republic


...thank-you bill.

these two Cypriots are heroes, in my mind. all Cypriots should be more like them.

here is where the compulsion to call the Flag of Cyprus, "Greek", may stop, because it is neither "Greek", or "Turkish". here are two people who state the obvious, they are as Persons, Turkish Cypriots indeed, they are Cypriots above all, as Individuals, not "Turkish"; what is wrong with that? if there is Justice to be seen, this fact will be clear, Cyprus exists, Cypriots exist, we are not appendages to the land like property, we are not here to serve the mythic reality of one regime against another, we are here on this island as its stewards, and as Human beings, we have this Freedom to express our loving nature, toward it. as it is, a dismissal of the charges is more likely, yet i imagine that the regime will not have the good sense to drop the issue, (as the Judge should have, the second or the third time around,) they don't have the will to defend Individual Rights, or to see their constituency as anything more than Persons, it will be delayed, again.

...thank-you, Koray Basdogrultmaci and Cinel Senem Husseyin, courage.
