Subject: <nettime> ERTopen: Call upon & plea for satellite capacity

The Greek government tried to shut down ERT, the public national
broadcaster, on the 11th of June.

The employees, in response to the popular demand and outcry of the public in
Greece and abroad, kept -- and are determined to continue keeping -- ERT
open, by broadcasting a full radio and television programme through the
internet and by any other means suitable and available.

Help and technical support from the EBU (European Broadcasting Union) was
crucial for 70 consequent days; but is now over, since the international
body decided to cease the re-distribution streaming of the broadcasts by the
employees of ERT.

Thus, we now call for the support of, and appeal to, each and every European
and/or Greek body, or organization that is able and willing, to kindly
provide us with satellite transmission capacities, so as to obtain once more
the capability of broadcasting freely our television and radio programme
again to the world.

By now, we stand convinced that by the solidarity and support not only of
the people, but of relevant institutions as well, we shall prevail in our
common cause and will continue to offer what the public is nowadays in grave
need of: an Open and Free public journalistic establishment that caters to
the actual needs of a struggling society.

We kindly request to address all relevant offers at pospert123 at
and/or ertopen at
