Remembrance Day 15th July 2018

Wreath Laying Kings Park
Cyprus Flag
Wreath Laying Kings Parl
In July of 1974, the island of Cyprus was invaded by Turkey and subsequently saw one third of the population expelled from their homes. It has been 44 years since the invasion, where Turkish troops entered Cyprus illegally.

On Sunday the 15 July there will be a church service at Evangelismos Church followed by a wreath laying service at 12pm at the war memorial in Kings Park.

We would like to invite you all to attend our service to honour and remember all those who had lost their lives, those that are still missing, those who lost their livelihood, their happiness and their freedom.

Please feel free to lay a wreath or some flowers to remember this very important day for Cyprus. We hope you are able to attend.

Vamvakinou raises Cyprus issue in Australian Parliament

A day after Erdogan's re-election in Turkey

- article by Neoskosmos
It might be coincidental, but it is hard to overlook the relevance between the outcome of the elections in Turkey, and a motion on the Cypriot issue presented in federal Parliament by Greek Australian Labor MP Maria Vamvakinou.
“For all of us who, over the years and decades, have been associated with the plight of Cyprus and who advocate for a free, reunified, sovereign, democratic and independent Cyprus, we stand firm in our continued commitment to support and aid, with whatever resources we have at our disposal, those who are genuinely committed to reaching a peaceful, humane, fair, just and viable solution for the Cyprus problem,” she said.
