In 1974, before the eyes of the world, northern Cyprus was occupied, ethnically cleansed and colonized by Turkey. In 1996, twenty-two years later, Tassos Isaac was beaten to death with sticks and poles by Turkish far right group the Grey Wolves during a demonstration in the UN buffer zone, as UN officials looked on. Three days later, following Isaac’s funeral, his cousin Solomos Solomou attempted to climb a flagpole to remove the Turkish flag in protest of the illegal occupation and was shot in the head 3 times by Turkish forces. Both men were unarmed.

Two young, brave Greek Cypriots standing up against the occupation were brutally killed by Turkish occupation forces in 1996. Here are their stories.
