Boycott the food market this Monday

The Cyprus Green Party with the support of the Cyprus Consumer Association and Quality of Life invites consumers to boycott food markets on Monday 10 January in response to the implementation of the 5% increase in VAT rate on food and medicine which is being put in effect on the same day. At the same time a symbolic event will be held in Eleftheria Square in Nicosia where bread will be sold without the extra 5% VAT rate.
