    by Kyriakos Tsioupras

    London, Jul 19 (CNA) -- ''Neither the British government nor the European Union should become an accessory to the illegalities committed by the Turkish military and its representatives in Cyprus'', Haris Sophoclides, President of the National Federation of Cypriots in the United Kingdom has said on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Turkish invasion of Cyprus.

    Ministers call on people to participate in anti-occupation events

    Nicosia, Jul 19 (CNA) - Cypriot Ministers of Justice and Education, Doros Theodorou and Pefkios Georgiades, have called on the people of Cyprus to participate in tomorrow's events against the Turkish invasion and occupation of the island's northern third.

    At noon, sirens will signal the commencement of the alarm and its end about three minutes later.

    Theodorou said that during these three minutes everyone should exit their workplaces or homes and stand on the pavements, and traffic should come to a halt in order to make this silent demonstration against the occupation and in favour of the reunification of the island.

    ''I call on all citizens of this land and this Republic to participate in the event to demonstrate the memory of our people about 1974 and their determination to end the occupation and reunite our country,'' Theodorou said.

    Tomorrow evening, the Cypriot government is organising an event under the title ''Cyprus 1974-2004, No to the occupation, Yes to reunification'' in which President Tassos Papadopoulos will be the main speaker.

    Georgiades said the aim of the event is ''to express the opposition of our people to the occupation and at the same time to express our will for a functional and viable solution of the Cyprus problem that will reunite our country and its people.''
