METU Cyprus students protest. Future of the campus at a crossroads

NEDA reporter

METU (ODTÜ ın Turkısh) ıs one of the oldest Turkısh state unıversıtıes. In 2003 it established a campus in the Omorfo/Kapouti area of Cyprus, which is home to approximately 4,000 students. Around 500 workers are employed there either full time, part time or through private service contracts. Many local businesses in the area rely heavily on footfall from the university. The students are mostly fee paying, although some receive full or partial bursaries from the Turkish state. The Cyprus campus is also very international, in that it attracts not just Turkish and Cypriot students. There are several hundred students from around the middle east and north Africa, who pay between $6.000 and $9,450 annually in course fees.

136 χρόνια μετά την πρώτη Πρωτομαγιά, παλεύουμε ξανά για το 8ωρο και για μια κοινωνία χωρίς εκμετάλλευση.


Η 1 Μάη είναι η μέρα σύμβολο για τους αγώνες των εργαζομένων. Το εργατικό κίνημα, στην Κύπρο και διεθνώς, πάλεψε σκληρά, πολλοί δώσανε ακόμα και τη ζωή τους, για να αποκτήσουν οι εργαζόμενοι ένα αξιοπρεπές βιοτικό επίπεδο και τα δικαιώματά τους.

Τα τελευταία 10 χρόνια όμως το κατεστημένο και στην Κύπρο έχει καταφέρει να πάρει τις παραπάνω κατακτήσεις των εργαζομένων πίσω!

25/11: Stop the pandemic of violence! Fight against patriarchy and capitalism!

“Violence against women remains devastatingly pervasive and starts alarmingly young. Across their lifetime, 1 in 3 women, around 736 million, are subjected to physical or sexual violence by an intimate partner or sexual violence from a non-partner – a number that has remained largely unchanged over the past decade. This violence starts early: 1 in 4 young women (aged 15-24 years) who have been in a relationship will have already experienced violence by an intimate partner by the time they reach their mid-twenties.”

It has been two and a half years since the crisis began in the CWI, starting at the IEC of November 2018. The split was an extremely negative development in the progress of what had become the biggest Trotskyist international organisation. The CWI split into three main parts and a number of smaller ones. The creation of the ISA was a necessity to which we gave all our powers and energy.

Pyrrhic victory of turkish intervention in the elections in north Cyprus

by Athina Kariati and Ruyam Oztuna

While this article was being written, 10.000 turkishcypriots went on the streets against turkish intervention. A report will follow soon. 

Ersin Tatar, the candidate of the traditional right wing nationalist party UBP won the elections of the 18th of October in northern Cyprus. With 51.69% to 48.31% defeated Mustafa Akinci, the social democrat president that was in office since 2015. Northern Cyprus is a semi-presidential democratic republic. The role of the president is mainly to negotiate the national question and represent the “state” abroad. The government is formed by the party that has majority in the parliament, while the president has (almost) no authority to the internal regime.
