The Annan plan has shaken the stagnant waters of the Cyprus problem.
The champions of the plan are proclaiming it to be the chance for a
solution to the problem in Cyprus. But, within the capitalist
framework, Annan's plan is an utopia.
After nearly 30 years of partition the United Nations have come up with
the Annan Plan to try and solve the Cyprus problem and reunite the
island. We will soon be publishing an article by a Greek Marxist on
this question. For now suffice it to say that again illusions are being
raised that the UN can solve the problem. Again, as thirty years ago
these illusions will be dashed. As a helpful introduction to the
question we are making available an article by Ted Grant on the events
that unfolded in Cyprus in 1974. It was originally published in two
parts on September 20 and 27, 1974.
