Water sports operators strike

ALL WATER Sports operations on the beaches will close from Wednesday to protest a state policy which water sports operators argue will end up throwing them out on the street and shutting them down.
The Cyprus Water Sports Operators Association decided unanimously that its members will take their boats to Limassol port at 11am on Wednesday to highlight the plight of the industry.
They also plan to protest Wednesday afternoon and all Thursday in Nicosia, where parliament is due to discuss the issue.
In an announcement, the association apologised for any inconvenience that may be caused, noting that it has exhausted all options.
“Our fair and reasonable request to keep our businesses is accepted by all in words but in practice they are preparing a tombstone for our industry,” it said.
The operators warned that their actions will intensify according to the response of the state. It was not clear yesterday how long they planned to keep their water sports centres closed.
