CN: this video contains discussion of trauma, displacement, and war
As Cypriot communities commemorate the events of July 1974 (as well as the decades prior) that led to Cyprus’ partition, Politika News Editor, Georgio Konstandi and From Root To Vine creator, Maria Christodoulou, sit down to discuss problematic discourses in their Greek-speaking Cypriot diaspora communities. Despite nearly half a century having passed, the events of ’74 have remained propagandised and/or a taboo subject in most parts of the diaspora. Georgio and Maria discuss the uncomfortable complexities of the partition, ethnic nationalism and diaspora experiences.
