Another massive Turkish Cypriot demonstration 02.03.2011 - a blow to Turkey

Turkish Cypriots today 02.03.2011 staged a demonstration more massive than the one held on 28.01.2011and here - with an attendance this morning of between 50,000 and 70,000 people at Nicosia's Inonu Square, which represents an equivalent to 50 MILLION  Egyptians protesting at Tahrir Square (if one takes population numbers in proportion)!

But of course the mainstream media ... won't mention THIS demonstration! Any comments regarding the mainstream media's non-coverage of Turkish Cypriot MASSIVE demonstrations against Turkey? !

Strong support and solidarity is hereby expressed to the Jasmin Movement in Cyprus, and to all the thousands of people that were on the streets this morning, but also the fact that in addition to activities at the demonstration we had, through facebook, the first reports on the morning's events via Zeki Beşiktepeli's profile, with the following photo uploads:

And comments about the above photos received via:

An intersting sign.
