Petition Tag - reunification

1. One Cyprus

Cyprus is a small country and a member of the EU. Two fifths of the island are populated by over 50,000 Turkish troops which is the basis of the division on the Island. Over the last 5 to 10 years all the Greek and Turkish Cypriots have been working hard and unceasingly to show the world they are one people and wish to live together in peace and harmony.

However until a few months ago very little news of this has reached the media in the outside world. Now, in a changing world we see the EU, America and the UN speaking out in favor of Cypriot unification. Ban Ki-moon (Secretary General UN) said; "As I walked down Ledra street people from both communities began chanting- 'Solution NOW Solution NOW!'"

In addition, in the EU Parliament a resolution was passed on the 10th February, calling on Turkey to immediately begin withdrawing her troops from North Cyprus, to give back the closed part of Famagusta to the Republic of Cyprus and to address the issue of over 200,000 settlers form mainland Turkey who have been moved into North Cyprus. We feel that time is running out for a solution and to echo the voices of all the hopeful Cypriots; "The time for a solution is NOW!"

2. The Peaceful Reunification of China and Taiwan

Historically, the Taiwanese government, headed by the Kuomintang, has been a staunch supporter of reunification. Furthermore, look to Hong Kong and Macao, two successful examples of the one country, two systems model.

Taiwan can co-exist as a province or special economic zone of China.

Not only will that stave off hostilities between the two nations, but it will further advance the vital ties between the island and the mainland.
