Cyprus Mail

Graffiti sends wrong message

As a visitor to Cyprus I noticed with interest two letters of complaint from tourists in last week’s Sunday Mail.

What has distressed me most has been the vast quantity of ugly graffiti to be seen everywhere.

Surely this sign of disrespect and disaffection is a fundamental attack on your society. If you do not bring up your young people to love and respect their country how can you expect outsiders to care about what happens to Cyprus?

Your president claims that once again Cyprus will be a proud nation with dignity. I suggest he starts with a grass roots, nationwide anti-graffiti campaign. Graffiti puts off both tourists and businessmen alike, and can only further impoverish your country.
