NEW YORK–The Cyprus Action Network of America (CANA) is pleased that the fervor for justice is growing stronger with each passing year, as much as the Greek and Cypriot establishment and lobby groups with their political ineptitude and personal agendas would like to bury this issue of memorialising 20th of July with muddled messages and talks (to the tune of bouzoukia and baglamades) on so-called «solutions» that involve so-called «federations» with the very criminals who perpetrated a HOLOCAUST on Greek-Cypriots,we say NEVER AGAIN. We will not be silent , and we are not going away.
