Greece: Stop the Shutdown of our Public Television

To Prime Minister Antonis Samaras:

Shutting down Greek Public Television is a direct threat to Greece's democracy and our right to quality independent information. Greeks have the right to be properly informed!

The Greek government has just brutally pulled the plug on our public radio and TV services, dealing a terrible blow to our democracy. But if enough of us fight back now, we can force PM Samaras to give us our ERT back.

State media is normally the first target in any coup but now our democratically elected government has decided to shut it down, firing all its 2,700 employees. They say ERT is inefficient and lacks transparency, but rather than reform it to make it better, they’ve decided to kill it. Right now protests are spreading across the country and if we turn the heat on Samaras now, we can still save the TV and radio we all grew up with.

We don’t have much time left. Greece is in crisis and and decisions being made now will last for generations. Only a public, impartial media can help us scrutinise the austerity autocrats and hold our democratically elected politicians to account. Let´s stop the Great Greek Switch-off -- sign this petition on the right and share it widely until we build an outcry impossible to ignore.
