Declaration of Pan-Cyprian Mobilization for the Freedom of Cyprus

Today, on the 49th Anniversary of the Turkish invasion, 49 citizens of the Republic of Cyprus from both the occupied and the free areas, are publishing a declaration that aims to become a point of reference for the solution to the Cyprus issue.

We propose a solution based on the European acquis communautaire and the Charter of the United Nations, which define internationally accepted democratic norms within which normal states operate.

Both the text and the list of signatures will be updated periodically.

«Αυτήν την πατρίδα θέλουμεν» – «Αυτή είναι η πατρίδα μας και το έμβλημα της»


We hereby declare our unwavering commitment to the struggle for the freedom of Cyprus and we stand united in the pursuit of a just and sustainable solution.

We consider and ascertain the following:

  • The Cyprus problem has its roots in Turkey’s expansionism and is perpetuated by its intransigence. It has resulted in military occupation and demographic alteration due to forced displacement of Cypriots and settler colonization.
  • Turkey’s strategic goal is the control of the whole of Cyprus. An apartheid-style arrangement with two constituent states, with political equality and separate sovereignty, which would facilitate Turkey in this pursuit.
  • A sustainable and just solution can be achieved through the will of Cypriots; no power or international organization is going to grant it to us or help us ensure it.

We aim for the following:

  • The withdrawal of all Turkish troops and settlers from the territories of the Republic of Cyprus, the consolidation of the Republic of Cyprus’ sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity, as well as the removal of all foreign troops and military bases on the island.
  • Ensuring the right and the conditions of safe return of all displaced persons.
  • Promoting the peaceful coexistence of all citizens of the Republic of Cyprus and emphasizing the unity of society, the economy, and the institutions of state power throughout its territory. The guarantee for this can efficiently be ensured via the membership of Cyprus in the European Union.
  • A future where all citizens will have the freedom to settle and move throughout Cyprus, have the right to work in any desired sector and exercise property rights, and enjoy the democratic freedoms of electing and being elected based on the democratic principle of “one person, one vote.”
  • Ensuring the continuation of the Republic of Cyprus, based on a political system that operates within the framework of modern pluralistic democracy, within the European Union, in order to achieve a fair, functional, and sustainable solution.

In our pursuit of saving and liberating our homeland by achieving a comprehensive solution, we propose and support:

  • Pan-Cyprian unity and solidarity.
  • Development of a multi-level and multi-dimensional foreign policy to forge strategic alliances with neighboring and other states based on common interests.
  • Working through international and European mechanisms to implement measures against Turkey while the occupation is lasting.
  • Initiating a global boycott and sanction campaign against Turkey for its war crimes and violations of human rights in Cyprus.

We, the signatories of this initiative, share the vision outlined in this Declaration. We categorically reject any so-called solution that include partition, two states, or any other arrangement with a geographical separation of Cypriots based on ethnic origin, such as a confederation or a bi-zonal bi-communal federation (BBF) which, with the separatist provisions will inevitably lead to two states. We strongly support a fully independent, truly democratic, and unitary Republic of Cyprus.

  • Λόγω της κατάστασης στα κατεχόμενα, πολλοί Κύπριοι υπογράφοντες που διαμένουν εκεί ζητούν να μην δημοσιευτούν οι υπογραφές τους.
  • Due to the situation in the occupied areas, many Cypriot signatories residing there request that their signatures not be published.
