Save Akamas - Save Cyprus

Cyprus : Save Akamas - Save Cyprus

On the 15th of April 2018, we come together to march for the protection of our natural and cultural heritage! The 'Save Akamas / Save Cyprus' movement, is calling for yet another gathering where all of us, who care about the protection of our coastline and the sea, our mountains and the forests, our nature and the landscape, as well as the cultural (archaeological and architectural) elements lying within them, we will bring our voices together for our commons. We will meet at 14:30 outside the EU House (Vyronos Avenue, near the Ministry of Interior) and we will march to the old city of Nicosia, finishing at the square of the Old Town Hall (Municipal market).

The local bands Monsieur Doumani, JUΛIO, Averta Liberta and Windcraft Band (plus some surprise performances) will raise their voices with all of us!

It is crucial for all of us to be there to show that we will not tolerate continuing with the degradation and destruction of our common, natural, and cultural heritage. Common goods belong to all of us. We expect that the provisions of the EU Directives and the Cypriot Legislation on nature and wildlife conservation will be respected without any rebates, deviations, and loopholes.

All projects and plans, which are situated near or within Natura 2000 sites and are likely to have significant negative impacts, should be properly assessed so that their impact is assessed properly, in a sufficient and timely manner, before granting planning and building permits. In addition, in the context of environmental liability and compliance with the environmental acquis, competent authorities should enforce legislation to prevent and remedy any environmental damage.

Finally, Conservation and Management Orders should be issued for all Natura 2000 sites (Sites of Community Importance / Special Conservation Areas and Special Protection Areas). These Orders should include binding measures and essential terms for the conservation and management of all sites listed in the Natura 2000 Network in Cyprus.


- Bring your banners, placards, whistles, percussion, etc.

- Feel free to dress up (seals, turtles, birds, plants, etc)

* With the participation of Averta Liberta, Julio, Monsieur Doumani, Windcraft and Almyras Beats
