The Panepirotic Federation of Australia is a member of the Justice for Cyprus Organising Committee (Σ.Ε.Κ.Α). Since 1974, Turkish troops illegally occupy the northern third of the island, in an attempt to create a pseudo-state on racial lines. The Federation feels this keenly as just like Cyprus, so too is Epirus divided. Northern Epirus is within the borders of Albania and this has had heinous consequences for the rights of the Greeks in that region. For this reason, the Panepirotic Federation actively takes part in the annual Justic for Cyprus rally and lobbys politicians and members of the community so as to ensure that all are made aware of the travesty of justice and international law that is the continuing occupation of the island.
