Thousands congregate outside ERT facilities in solidarity
Thousands of people have gathered outside the ERT facilities in Agia Paraskevi, where labor unions GSEE and ADEDY are holding a demonstration.
PAME is holding a separate demonstration at the main square in Agia Paraskevi, which will later head towards the ERT facilities. KKE’s leader Dimitris Koutsoubas is present. Extra-parliamentary leftist groups are also holding their own demonstration at the Mint in Agia Paraskevi.
Many more demonstrations are being organized all over Greece today. In Thessaloniki the Venizelos Statue has been set as the rallying point, for a march towards the ERT offices on Stratou Avenue.
Meanwhile ERT’s television broadcasts are being transmitted by KKE’s “902” TV station and over the Internet. The European Broadcasting Union is broadcasting ERT’s coverage of the demonstrations here.
