Andreas C Chrysafis The first round of talks between President Anastasiades and the Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci in Mont Pelerin in Switzerland raised great expectations.

Revolution of the Mind: THE PRICE OF A HOSPITAL BLANKET

There is this place that attracts hundreds of pigeons that feast during the day and drop their muck covering windowsills and dead birds left to rot and prone to spread diseases – yet, nobody cares! It’s about a place that darkness of the night welcomes an army of cockroaches and mosquitoes on a rampage in search for food – nobody ... Read More »

Catastrophe

DEAN KALIMNIOU On that day, 93 years ago this month, frightened, hungry and brutalised refugees massed on the quayside, frantically trying to save themselves from rape or murder by the crazed soldiers and irregulars who would pick them off from the crowd at random, strip them of everything they owned and attempt to satiate an almost insatiable lust for inflicting ...

What crisis?

DEAN KALYMNIOU Crisis? What crisis? This is the caption posted by a Facebook ‘friend,’ below a photograph of a stereotypical Aegean beach. All the accoutrements of a ‘perfect’ holiday are present: the impossibly blue waters, the sun-bleached pebbles, the pastel multi-coloured beach umbrellas, the oiled skin of the southerners in various gradations of burn, a half-finished frappe fermenting within arm’s ...

VANISHING CYPRUS: GREEK GODS ARE ANGRY

By Andreas C Chrysafis July, 2015 (No 77) © The election of the Tsipras government has triggered a massive headache for the Eurogroup in fear it may inspire others across the Eurozone.

VANISHING CYPRUS: GREEK DEMOCRACY IS BACK

By Andreas C Chrysafis June, 2015 (No 76) © In a true Democracy no government, parliament or president, politicians or political parties have the legitimacy to make constitutional changes to alter the basic fabric of the nation without the overwhelming consent of the people.
