A militant demonstration organised by the Cyprus Party Organisation of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) was held on Sunday outside the British RAF base at Akrotiri, from where airstrikes were launched against Syria.
Carrying placards with slogans "NATO Killers Go Home" and KKE flags, the protesters called the working people of Cyprus to "assert their opposition to the facilitations given to the British butchers who are bombing the Syrian people. The British bases must be closed down now. Neither soil, nor water to the murderers of the people". Various international media (BBC, Associated Press, Sky News, etc.) reporting from Cyprus referred to the demonstration.
