TO OUR PUBLIC
  
THIS HOMELAND IS OURS, WE WILL GOVERN IT!
WE WILL NOT BOW TO IMPOSITIONS!


The basis of the immense problems in north Cyprus is political.

Turkish Cypriots are not allowed to govern their country.

We do not govern the police force nor the military.

Establishments like the Central Bank, Turkish Cypriot Airlines or Turkish
Cypriot Petrols are not under our control.

All investments are controlled by the Nicosia embassy of Republic of
Turkey.

All political decisions are made by the coordination comitee.

Essentially Turkish Cypriots are not governing their own country.

The "Economy Package" imposed by the leaders of Republic of Turkey and is
about to be implemented by their domestic collaborators aims to
exterminate Turkish Cypriots economically, socially, politically and
culturally.

The political meaning of this package is:


                    Joining of north Cyprus to Republic of Turkey.

                    Total extermination of the Turkish Cypriot community 
                    from this island.     

                    Emmigration.

Turkish Cypriots will not accept this destruction.

We have the knowledge, ability and power to govern our country.  

We will put out a common struggle for independence, democracy and peace  
in Cyprus and will live with pride and freely in our own country.

We will support any struggle in this frame-work and will be with our
public during their independence and freedom struggle.
