    Overseas Greeks and Cypriots to denounce Turkish invasion

    Nicosia, Jun 25 (CNA) -- Overseas Greeks and Cypriots in the United States will organise a series of events to demand the withdrawal of the Turkish troops from Cyprus and the island's reunification, 28 years after the Turkish invasion and occupation of 37 per cent of Cyprus territory.

    The Cyprus Federation of America, the International Coordinating Committee Justice for Cyprus (PSEKA) and the World Council of Hellenes Abroad (SAE), in cooperation with federations and community organisations, have announced that the events will be held from July 1 - 21.

    These include two gatherings in Astoria, a summer stage at New York Central Park by two Greek singers and memorial services for the victims of the coup d' etat of June 15, 1974, by the Greek Junta, and the victims of the Turkish invasion and occupation as well as for the first president of Cyprus Archbishop Makarios III.

    The services will be held at the Cathedral of Holy Trinity in Manhattan. Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America, Archbishop Demetrios will officiate.

    Members of the diplomatic corps of Greece and Cyprus as well as congressmen and local politicians will be invited to attend.
