Illegal rabbits in the "trnc"?

Turkish Cypriot trade unionist Sener Elcil has been blasted for saying that “settlers multiply faster than rabbits”. Elcil was rounded on by several dailies yesterday, many claiming that trade unionists have exceeded the boundaries of treachery. The daily Volkan newspaper described Elcil as “immoral”.

Meanwhile, workers in the northern part of Cyprus will hold another general strike scheduled for 7 April, according to media reports. Members of the Unions Platform will gather outside “Parliament” later today then have a meeting with the leaders of various political parties to discuss strike action. President of the civil servants’ trade union Ahmet Kaplan warned that the unions making up the platform will go on an indefinite strike if the “parliament” passes any law relating to the package of economic measures.

Turkey's Kurds & Cyprus' tCypriots

As either unitary state or federation solutions are discussed as replacements to Cyprus' 1960 and Turkey's 1923 unworkable constitutions, should we abide by "if a right is a right too many for Turkey's Kurdish community (circa 23% of population) then that right is a right too many for Cyprus' tCypriot community too (circa 15%), and vice versa." Is the adoption of this fair logic the catalyst to securing just solutions for both UN countries.
