Greek public broadcaster ERT to be closed down

The Greek public broadcaster ERT is to close down almost immediately, the government has announced, causing shockwaves across the country.

Three TV channels, several radio stations and the internet service will stop operating from midnight on Tuesday.

The move, which brought immediate protests outside the broadcaster’s headquarters, is the latest austerity measure imposed because of the demands of international lenders.

“With one page of this unconstitutional decree, one act of legislation in one night, they are destroying or trying to destroy the national TV,” said employment lawyer Dimitris Perpataris, among the protesters.

One member of staff added: “They’re laying their hands on ERT – we, the employees are going to smash their hands.”

The government said a new restructured public service would be up and running as soon as possible.

Stunned workers gathered inside the headquarters. It is thought more than 2,500 are to be laid off, and far fewer will be retained by the new service.

Amber Lyon reveals CNN lies and war propaganda

Published on Oct 2, 2012
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad both delivered two of the most controversial speeches at the latest session of the United Nations General Assembly. And while the Israeli’s speech was aired in full on CNN, the Iranian’s address has been ruthlessly cut and the viewers have missed some very important points. What are the ramifications of this kind of selective reporting? RT’s Liz Wahl is joined by Amber Lyon, a three-time Emmy award winning journalist who suggests that sensationalism, hype and downright propaganda is being used to push America into a war with Iran.

Fascism and Democracy in America – Howard Zinn

The fascist movement in America is much older than some would imagine. In this documentary, Historian Howard Zinn explains how America is neither fully democratic nor entirely free of fascism. In recent years, however, the scale has shifted in favor of a fascist state, as our leaders deprive Americans of civil rights with Nazi-style textbook precision, in the interest of war and the elusive promise of security from fear.

December 20, 2011 – The night when the World War 3 has begun

It seems be very obvious what is going on now not only on Syria but on whole middle east front lines include Iran and Pakistan too. Guess what is going to whole world on the date from title, unfortunately?

On the first hand the US NAVY fleet headed by the flagship aircraft carrier G.W. Bush is approaching on Mediterranean sea. Some saying that is heading on to Syrian offshore. Meanwhile, in a related development, three more US warships have been dispatched to join the USS John C. Stennis in the 5th fleet region. With the Stennis, a Nimitz-class nuclear-powered super carrier, already stationed just outside Iranian territorial waters, the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier has just been deployed from its home port to join the U.S. 5th Fleet AOR (middle east).
