Kios building 11d1:

Kios building 11d2: one Turkish-language graffito reads 'hakımız değil', which I think translates as something like "it is not our right/justice", perhaps more colloquially as "we did not deserve this".

I don't know whether the chalk outline around the phrase is supposed to be an outline of Cyprus, or just a lazy circular border; I also don't know whether or not 'geçti' ("passed" or "past") is connected to 'hakımız değil'.

Kios building 11d3: 'i Kypros einai Elliniki [η Κύπρος είναι Ελληνική]' is a simple nationalist declaration that "Cyprus is Greek".

I don't know if these graffiti are in a conversation, or whether they are completely different statements.
