Eurozone finance ministers demanded on Sunday that Cypriots pay up to 10% of their bank deposits in exchange for a €10bn (£8.5bn) bailout, prompting panic across the island as people rushed to cash machines to withdraw their savings.
That caused traders to dump shares across Europe, on fears it sets a dangerous precedent that could trigger bank runs in other eurozone countries.
Mohamed El-Erian, the chief executive of Pimco, the world’s largest bond investor, said: “In Europe, [the Cyprus bailout] could well undermine the recent tranquil behaviour of depositors and creditors in other vulnerable European economies – in particular Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain.”

A protest demonstration at the British Akrotiri base against the aerial spraying is being organized by the Ecological Environmental Movement of Cyprus (Cyprus Green Party) for 4th July, as the British bases in Cyprus are alleged to be part of the HAARP (High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program), system aimed at controlling the climate of the planet. .
In recent times there has been a proliferation of information related to the activities of the British and the Americans through the bases in Cyprus, which are very likely affecting the climate on our island.
The Ecological Environmental Movement has in the past invited the Cypriot government to take action “to stop the use of the skies of Cyprus for suspicious American military experiments”. An announcement by the Movement states that “reports links American KC-10 and KC-135 aircraft with the HAARP programme and with chemtrails, that is to say spraying of the sky with aluminium and barium oxides.” The subject has occupied the European Parliament, many parliaments of European countries and researchers throughout the world.
HAARP, the High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Programme, is a weapons system using electromagnetic energy which has been under development by the United States since 1987. The initial picture of programme that was encouraged was that it is a scientific programme aimed at selective modification of the ionosphere to improve telecommunications. But it soon became known that the American Pentagon was seeking to exploit the ionosphere for its own purposes. Even the official HAARP web page acknowledges that the system is also used for defence purposes.
The bases deny involvement
The Cypriot Parliament has recently involved itself in the subject. The parliamentarian Angelos Votsis brought it up for discussion on the Parliamentary Committee on the Environment. The parliamentarian said: “according to scientific specialists, when it is perfected, if it has not already been perfected, the system will be able to influence climatic conditions, suspend the functioning of, and destroy, every electrical device in a selected area, destroy telecommunications, intervene in the development of extreme weather phenomena, such as hurricanes but also lightning strikes of tremendous intensity and even influence human mental processes through the transmission of low-frequency waves similar to those already present in humans.”
The administration of the British bases was summoned to a session of the Parliament in order to state the official position on this information, but through a letter the reply was that they will not respond to the summons because they “have no involvement with the HAARP programme and have not been involved in any aerial spraying”.
The community president of Akrotiri Georgios Christou for his part said to “Simerini” (Today) newspaper that nothing that would arouse suspicions of aerial spraying during the flight of aircraft has been noticed by the residents of the area.

A Subscriber sent in some military observations – from the Gulf to Europe – the menace of military build-up is everywhere.
PREPARATIONS FOR A WAR
The US, Israel and Greece launched an air naval exercise in the Mediterranean Thursday, March 29. Codenamed “Noble Dina,” within Crete and including the waters off of Turkey, Cyprus, and Israeli Navy bases in Haifa and Ashdod. American, Israeli and Greek fleets are being supported by the British Royal Navy flotilla cruising around the Straits of Gibraltar. Rumours have it that the exercise is led by the US Sixth Fleet . As soon as it is over, possibly at the end of April, this aircraft carrier and strike group will head through the Suez Canal to the Red Sea and Persian Gulf, raising the number of US aircraft carriers facing Iran to three. Israel contributed missile ships, submarines, fighter jets and assault helicopters to the drill.
As this drill is launched Russia has started to surround Syria with it’s warships to prevent any attack on Syria . Also in the recent US-backed “Friends of Syria” meeting in Istanbul Saudi Arabia and Qatar confirmed they will financially assist the rebels. Russia has viewed it as a further step towards Arab meddling in the region.
Meanwhile 200 American and Arab Gulf fighter-bombers thundered overhead Sunday, April 8 at the outset of the biggest air force exercise ever conducted in the Gulf region. An operation for reopening the strategic Straits of Hormuz if it is closed by Iran which is busy building a naval base there. 100 of the warplanes took off from the USS Enterprise and USS Abraham Lincoln, training was also with Saudi, UAE, Kuwaiti and Bahraini air forces. The drill was conducted mainly around the US Fifth Fleet High Command base in Bahrain and around the Gulf.
Russia is building a radar station in the Armenian mountains to counter the US radar set up at the Turkish Kurecik air base. This system sends a warning to the US not to strike Iran. The Turkish station will trade data on incoming Iranian missiles with the US station in the Israeli Negev, the Russian station in Armenia will share input with Tehran. The Russian army has deployed S-400 surface-to-air missiles into Kaliningrad, the Baltic enclave bordered by Poland and Lithuania as a response to US plans for an anti-Iran missile shield system in Europe and the Middle East. Looks like the future is going to be not peaceful and will get worse.
