21 years to the day: Remembering Tassos Isaac & Solomos Solomou
Tassos Isaac, 24, and Solomos Solomou, 26, two young, brave Greek Cypriots standing up against the occupation, were brutally killed on Aug. 11 and 14, 1996 by Turkish occupation forces.
The civilized world should remember and honor their memories.
In August 1996, more than 200 bikers from several European countries organized a rally to the Cypriot city of Kyrenia to commemorate the 22nd year of Cyprus’ being a divided country as a result of the Turkish invasion and occupation.
But heavy political pressure – including by United Nations Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali – was applied on the Cypriot Motorcycle Federation, resulting in the cancelation of the event. Afterward, a large number of the bikers and other protesters (among them Anastasios “Tassos” Isaac) decided to march on their own in a civilian demonstration against Turkey’s military occupation.
