Desmond Tutu at launch of CCMC

'Elders' open CCMC

The Cyprus Community Media Centre (CCMC) was opened 9 December by three members of the eminent ‘Elders’ group, Lakhdar Brahimi, Jimmy Carter and Desmond Tutu, in the Ledra Palace buffer zone of Nicosia.

The three Elders, who are in Cyprus to support individuals and organisations seeking to build greater trust and dialogue between the communities of the island, expressed their support for the new centre, and their desire to see a positive outcome to current political negotiations.

Speaking at the event, Desmond Tutu said that Cyprus was full of untold and beautiful stories and that he hoped “the community media centre could be a vehicle for these stories to surface.”
