Offenbar versucht die nordzypriotische Bourgeoisie und die UBP-Regierung die Krisenlasten, welche durch die Verringerung der Subventionen an den Klientelstaat durch die türkische Regierung unter Erdogan verschärfte Wirkungen zeigen vollständig auf die ArbeiterInnenklasse abzuwälzen zu wollen:
„The admirable popular uprisings currently spreading throughout the Arab world should serve as a wake-up call to the Küçük administration that the legitimate grievances of workers must be heard and acted on.“

„Left-wing Greek Cypriot trade union PEO yesterday issued a statement to express its solidarity with their Turkish Cypriot counterparts.
“Today in the conditions created by the world economic crisis as a result of the capitalistic globalisation and the neo-liberal policies, the position of working people all over the world is deteriorating,” it said.“

„But more worrisome for Turkish Cypriots is the sense that they are losing control of their own destiny, as policy formulated in Ankara is implemented in the north by an acquiescent government, said Şener Elcil, general secretary of the Cyprus Turkish Teachers‘ Trade Union, KTOS.
„People are fed up. Turkish Cypriots want to govern themselves,“ said Elcil, one of the protest’s organizers. „We sent a clear message to Turkey not to interfere.“
Elcil said Turkish Cypriots are losing their jobs as state-owned companies are being sold off to Turkish businessmen.“
