In support of striking Greek journalists
According to this report: ‘Television channels aired pre-recorded material, radio stations played back-to-back music and newspapers will not be published until Tuesday. Even online news sites shut down.’
I’d like to express my support to the journalists and urge them to stay on strike for much longer than four-days; say, four months or even four years – during which time Greeks, instead of being subjected to the garbage being pumped out by the Greek media, might read books instead, or take up exercise, do some voluntary work or discuss among themselves the state of Greece and how to improve matters.
