One Minute Cypriot

I came up with the ‘One Minute Cypriot’ concept over 3 years ago, I was inspired by conversations that I had with Cypriots from different backgrounds who displayed a n unconditional love for Cyprus without the political, ethnic or religious divisions that has torn the island apart.

We have waited for nearly FIVE DECADES for the politicians to negotiate the peace, but ultimately they are more concerned with their own pre-requisites, than the will of their citizens. There is one thing that history has taught us, when people unite, politicians listen. I believe that the peace is in the hands of the citizens, NOT the politicians.

In this video, I am urging anyone who is a Cypriot citizen, national, resident or dependant of……to make a one minute video, to tell the world who they are, where they or their families are from, what they do and to express their unconditional support for a united Cyprus, irrespective divisions, whatever they may be.

The divisions of Cyprus were planted by those at the top, to work their way downwards, however I believe that the citizens of Cyprus can declare unconditional unity that will work it’s way to the top.

Please feel free to make your own ‘One Minute Cypriot’ video and send it to me so that I can add it to my channel and promote a worthy cause. This is a non-political cause, it does not matter who you are, what language you speak, what faith you practice (or not as the case may be) all I ask is that if you are Cypriot, (by birth, descent, marriage or applied citizenship) to declare your support for unity.

I appreciate that I may be flogging a dead Horse, but I’ll never learn and I’ll never give up on this cause! In the three years(nearly four now in fact) since I came up with the One Minute Cypriot concept, I’ve not had as much response as I would have liked, but if at first you don’t succeed, try again.
 
As you may have gathered, I do not support the notion of disagreeing amongst ourselves, regarding the actions of the politicians that we have very little control over, but I fervently believe, that if the people make the effort to unite, the politicians will be powerless to keep them apart, indeed, there comes a time when we must ask ourselves if we have been labouring under a misapprehension placing so much faith in them,
 
“Unite Cyprus, one minute at a time”
 
I have always maintained that the effort must come from the bottom up, not from the top down and I do not ask that you relegate your identity to the closet, however what I am asking you, whoever you are, wherever you are and wherever your parents are from to accept, support and celebrate the notion of being a Cypriot national in a united Cyprus,
 
If you do not want to make a video, why not post a photo holding a piece of paper and just write….
 
“I am Cypriot”
 
You can send videos & images to me directly if you would like, you can also contact me here, or via…
