Action against Altamira Hedge Fund Cyprus 2nd August

Movement Against Evictions Cyprus

On the second of August the Cypriot Movement called for an action as the Central Co-operative Bank came to an agreement with Altamira, a well known vulture fund.The whole procedure was kept in the dark. When the board of the Bank was asked why they signed an agreement with such a fund they were mumbling and gave no concrete explanation. In trying to assure the Cypriot society that all is normal they created more unrest .
For this we called for an action day . We went to the co-operative bank and symbolically occupied the main office entrance for some ten minutes. Some of us had a discussion with the leading co-operative cadres and we of course submitted a memo with our demands . Of course each side stood its ground. The struggle goes on. This is a video showing part of the action.
