About Lobby for Cyprus
Lobby for Cyprus Lobby for Cyprus About Lobby for Cyprus: Lobby for Cyprus is a non-party-political human rights NGO based in the UK with the aim of reuniting Cyprus. Lobby was formed in 1992 and since its inception has campaigned against the invasion, occupation, ethnic cleansing and destruction of the cultural heritage of 37 per cent of the Republic of Cyprus by Turkey. Being independent and non-aligned has enabled Lobby to maintain its policies and freedom to evaluate developments concerning the Cyprus issue and to campaign accordingly without influence and pressure from external political forces. It is for these reasons that Lobby has remained focused on its goals and objectives and has been successful in delivering its policies and campaign material clearly and concisely to decision makers. Lobby was founded by the UK-based Cypriot refugee organisations Ayios Amvrosios UK, Anglo Akanthou, Lapithos & Karavas UK and a number of concerned individuals, who believed that any settlement of the Cyprus issue should not legitimise Turkey?s illegal occupation of the northern part of the island and that all refugees must have the right to return. Lobby has evolved into the voice of the Greek Cypriot refugees in the UK. It is an umbrella organisation and its membership has grown to include many individuals and UK-based refugee organisations which it represents, such as Famagusta, Rizokarpasso, Leonarisso-Vasili, Yialousa & suburbs, Lefkoniko and Eptakomi amongst many others.
