Journalists Community Condemns Closure of Greek Public Broadcaster ERT

The

signatories, meeting in Cyprus to promote diversity in the media, have learned

with indignation and shock of the brutal closure of the public broadcasting

service in Greece.

The

signatories demand that the Greek government reverse this decision without

delay. Public broadcasting is a precondition of pluralism and of the quality of

TV and radio programmes.

The

signatories express their full solidarity with their Greek colleagues and call

upon the media across Europe to condemn this authoritarian suppression of

public-service broadcasting.

The massive,

imposed cuts in public employment are an inadequate response to the economic

and financial crisis. The decision by the Greek government to deprive the

public of a service to which it has a right constitutes an attack on freedom of

expression and democracy.
