Well, well, well - we're all used to seeing TEAR GAS used on the streets against protestors - but last night Greek riot police have cleared the headquarters of a TV channel using tear gas to gain entry and arresting TV-reporters! This is INSANE!
Police formed a cordon round the building in Athens, before going from room to room to evacuate protesters. Former employees have occupied the building since the government closed ERT and sacked its 2,600 staff in June.
Greece's conservative-led coalition said the state broadcaster cost too much to run in an economic crisis.... But the TRUTH is deeper than that - it was an attempt to CENSOR any Public Criticism of the massive Greek Banking and Political Bribery Scandal!!!
The closure of the ERT TV-station prompted the journalists to go ON-LINE and continue broadcasting TV shows using the INTERNET... Following the announcement of ERT's closure in June, hundreds of staff refused to leave the building and continued to broadcast on the www... The STUPID POLICE just do not realise that this brings MASSIVE ATTENTION to the ERT TV website and now even more people will understand the CORRUPTION!
