Huge popular demonstration in Cyprus
You may find attached pictures from yesterday's demonstration outside the House of Representatives (Cypriot Parliament) during the voting procedure for the pack of measures agreed between the Eurogroup leaders and the Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades that included among others the taxation of the deposits in all private accounts in the Cypriot Banks by 6,75% and 9,9% for accounts between 20,000-100,000 euro and more than 100,000 euro, respectively.
The pack of measures had been rejected by the majority of the Parliament. Particularly there were 36 VOTES AGAINST 19 ABSTENTIONS (of the Democratic Rally - Anastasiades Party). AKEL has been in the front line of the rejection of this measures from the first moment of the public discussion on this issue. Also, AKEL and the Popular Movement have been in the heart of the huge popular demonstration that was held last night outside the Parliament in Nicosia.
This was a very significant message to the peoples of the world resisting to the neoliberal and harsh policies that are imposed on them.
We will keep you informed for the further developments in Cyprus.
