In Solidarity with Liza

The news were an undertone to the news of the day; the daily update on the Cyprus problem, the prominent visit of the Greek Minister of Defense, the meeting between Nikos, Andri, Barrack and Michel, the eclipse, the daily update on corruption in Cyprus, Rikkos, Guiness records, football, sports and so on.   A 27-year-old Filipino woman died from injuries suffered during a fall in Nicosia, after the police invaded her home.

Liza’s memory was marked on the Liberty monument in the old town last night. Red paint was thrown on the monument whilst work permits with Liza’s name were left behind. The slogan “borders are scars to the body of the planet” was sprayed on the floor.

For Liza, for those who died before her, and for those who are still to come, we stand in solidarity and we continue fighting. We remember.

About the author

independent media

In the divided socio-political landscape of Cyprus and in the power-driven international media sphere, emerging issues of local and global social movements, public contestations, and continuous attempts of ecological destruction are censored systematically, or vocally constrained to a point of silence. This presents a political concern to which we address, by generating an independent means of communication across social, cultural and economic divisions. In our own media sharing platform, we intend to disseminate information from the location 35°0'N 33°0'E, Cyprus, to the world.
