NSW Greek Orthodox Community Supports ERT

ert-new-logoThe Greek Orthodox Community of New South Wales denounces the Greek Government’s act of shutting down the Greek Public broadcaster ERT, which employed more than 2,500 employees.

As stated in its announcement, “The unacceptable and provocative government’s decision to shut down State broadcaster ERT will affect the Hellenism of Australia. The right for entertainment and information is an inalienable right of every single one of us and through this action the Government deprives us, Greeks, of this very right.”

“This forced action is in fact a great blow for Democracy, since the Public Television and Radio kept the social level of good information, culture and preservation of the Greek identity high, something that Greek-Australians and Greek expatriates in general are so much in need of.”

“The Greek Orthodox Community of NSW, has called on the Greeks of Australia to demand from the Greek Government the re-operation of ERT as a sign of support and solidarity towards the fired employees of the national broadcaster and the Greek people as well.”
