Momentum gathers for Cyprus to support Greece at Eurogroup

Giorgos Lillikas

An anti-austerity protest is due to take place on Wednesday evening outside EU House in Nicosia in support of Greece while a crucial Eurogroup meeting on the country’s future is being held in Brussels.

The Nicosia protest at 6pm is being organised by the Network of Solidarity of Greek Cypriot Citizens. Parties and organisations announced that they would attend the gathering and invite the public to participate.

Citizens Alliance leader Giorgos Lillikas said the people of Cyprus should make it known that they were on the side of Greece. If Athens was successful in Brussels, it would benefit Cyprus, he said.

“Today’s meeting of the Eurogroup not only for the future of Greece and the Greek economy but for all the countries in the support mechanism, such as Cyprus,” he said.

“What happens today will determine the course of other European countries and the EU itself.”

He said he expected Cypriot Finance Minster Harris Georgiades to issue a statement in support of Greece at the opening session of the Eurogroup meeting.

“If Cyprus is silent, other countries will be hesitant to support Greece,“ he added.

The Green Party also called on the public to attend the protest.
