Dear citizen of Famagusta,
The initiative campaign of the Municipal Council to collect signatures from all the lawful inhabitants of the city of Famagusta has only one aim: to assert our will to return and our resolve to fight for our city. To fight for it today, before it will be too late.
We have a responsibility towards the history and the future of our city not to let the issue of Famagusta be forgotten. Famagusta remains for 33 years now a shameful sight, a disgrace for the international community and especially for civilized Europe . A European city, a city which had been an example of spiritual renaissance, cultural heritage and economic development, a “reigning city”, remains silent for a third of a century, without anyone speaking up to restore justice.
The initiative of our Municipality serves no party concerns. It serves only the concerns of the citizens of Famagusta . We bring to the fore the humanitarian dimension, the human need and demand. We want to give our city a voice again, we want to give life to the “reigning city” of our hearts, to relive its beauties, to smell its lemon blossoms, to walk on our golden beach with our children and grand children.
Citizens of Famagusta,
In order to assert our rights, first we must fight for our city. No one will do that for us. Now is the time to win the wager of Famagusta . The more signatures we collect, the stronger the voice of our city will be heard, both in Cyprus and abroad. We are beginning an international campaign to rekindle the issue. From 14 th to 22 nd April, there will be special signing points in all towns so that we can sign declaring our faith in the future of Famagusta .
We don't have the luxury of indifference and apathy. If we don't take part in this campaign to collect signatures we are condemning our city to silence. Famagusta is made of all of us together, our ancestors and the new generations. Urge as many citizens of Famagusta you can to sign. Be present from 14 th to 22 nd April. All the lawful citizens of the city of Famagusta and their children over 12 years old have the right to sign.
Give your city a voice.
Sign for Famagusta .
