A strong “police” force is located at the T / C checkpoint of the roadblock of Agios Dometios where dozens of T / C workers in the free areas, some with their children, are protesting against the restrictive measures at the crossings. The event started in the afternoon on Monday and continues.
With slogans such as “Be fair”, “Respect for day laborers, respect for employees”, “Finally open the gates”, the Turkish Cypriot workers demand that what applies to them and the other employees in the Bases or the dead apply to them zone, that is, to be able to cross to go to work and return to the occupied areas with a negative PCR every 72 hours.
The secretary of the association “Turkish workers in the south” Soidan Borakim read the written statement with their demands. “We want to go to our homes to see our families, our wives, our children,” he said, calling on “Prime Minister” Saner and “Health Minister” Pillie to “come here and solve the problem”. We are not refugees and you will not make us, he added.
T / C workers in the free areas returning from work went through the checkpoint on foot to the occupied areas and were trapped in the dead zone, from where they themselves shouted slogans to their colleagues in the occupied areas. They were talking via mobile phones and some of them were talking to their children, who were at the T / C checkpoint and were waiting to see them. Among the idiots is an infant in a stroller.
Among those trapped in the dead zone and unable to return to the occupied areas after they have finished school is the president of the Turkish Workers' Union, Georgian Osmanbuba, who said via mobile phone that they would stay until a solution was found to their problem. where it is, that is, in the dead zone.
The “police” had blocked the road for the road to the roadblock of Agios Dometios and most of the protesters went to the event on foot.
A similar protest is taking place at the Agios Nikolaos roadblock in Strovilia.
What now applies to Turkish Cypriot workers in the free zones is the mandatory quarantine in areas designated by the “government” when they return to the occupied territories. They can not go home and see their families.
